Posts of the Week 11.27.16-12.3.16

Hey, everyone! So at the end of my post on Thursday, I mentioned that I loved the Book Sacrifice tag but didn’t feel like it was long enough and that if anyone had any extra questions to make it longer, I would gladly answer them later in the week. Well, POTW time has arrived and one fellow blogger has answered my call to Book Sacrifice situation suggestions with the following:

Shar from Virtually Read presented this:

Situation: There’s a flooded stream you have to cross on your quest, and you can't get your feet wet. Which series (oh yeah btw you brought your whole bookshelf and also probably your local library with you) will you use as stepping stones?

Well, after much deliberation, and considering the fact that I did indeed bring my local library, I went with this series.


It’s not that I hate it. I just... I lost interest because things kept happening for not-so-great reasons and it irritated me. I’ve read up to the second one, but I'm probably not going to read the rest (unless I miraculously finish every other book on my TBR before I’m one billion and eighty-nine), so if it’s between them getting wet and me getting wet socks, it’s likely going to be them.

Sorry, Drew. That really sounds calloused, especially after all you've been through. But you're the best choice to sacrifice that I haven't already.

ON TO THE POSTS.

Tea With Tumnus from C.S. Lewis’ The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe by Hannah Heath. In which she actually recreates the tea with Tumnus scene’s food. I don’t cook, so I’d have to get someone else to do this all for me, lol, but it does look fantastic. :D

On the Learning Process of Writing by Mariella. Sometimes it’s easy--well, a lot of times--to focus more on constantly pushing ourselves to get better rather than seeing how far we’ve already come. I really enjoyed getting to see her insight on her writing process as well as a more positive view of the learning curve.

The Zombie Apocalypse Tag by Liz. So this was posted over a month ago, and I somehow forgot to read and share it. You should read it now, if you haven’t already. It’s really funny.

The Small YouTuber Tag by TheEpicPlace. So it’s a video. You should still watch it, because it gets really inspiring about 2:30 minutes in. Like, really inspiring. If you're struggling to meet all your goals and you feel like you're a failure as a result, or you're scared to even go for your goals because you might not reach them, this is the video for you.

***
And that is it for this week! So tell me, which series would you use to get across the stream? What’s something you’ve learned about your own writing this year? Can’t wait to hear from you all, and I will see you in the comment section!

  1. Creating incidents that don't have a good reason behind them is a great danger writers face. I'm not sure why that happens. I've just started a book and I loved the opening chapter. Then pow! An incident came out of nowhere. Now, I'm disenchanted. I couldn't put my finger on the problem until I read your post. Thanks, Alexa.

    I wish Werewolf, Rise of the Wolf had lived up to that cover. That's super.

    1. Yes! I guess maybe we want things to go a certain way and just drag the characters along with it sometimes? I don't know. But it does happen a lot.
      Glad I was able to help, though I do wish it didn't happen as it often as it does. :p

      I know right! And I mean, others might like it (my brother certainly does), but because of those incidents, it didn't work for me.
