Why Every Writer Should Be A Beta Reader

Saturday, May 20, 2017


Beta reading -- I didn't used to think about it much before I started writing seriously. (Fact About Me: I used to be jealous of the people who got to beta read my favorite books. still am. I mean, they got to read that book for free and give their opinion on it ;)

Then, last September, when I got my flash of inspiration to start spending hours a day at a keyboard (that's how it went) I started thinking of the mysterious organism called the beta reader, the one who had all the connections to the people with the cool books in need of a new mind to critique them. Seriously. Who wouldn't want to read a book for free and give an opinion on it that the author will actually take into consideration before publication?!?

Beta-reading excitement aside, is that really the only reason why we beta read novels?

It's A Journey

Life seems to be a lot about destinations.

You know, finish high school. Graduate college. Get married. Retire. Or, on a smaller level: finish that book, get through that school year, make it to that date. That's why people have bucket lists, I guess. So they can cross off important events in their lives that they've accomplished.

This Past Month: April

Saturday, April 29, 2017
Just for the record, I took that picture, and I'm finally proud of myself XP
(a.k.a. when my overcommiter self finally gets punished xD)
(and that picture is really ironic because I spent the last week of the month nearly freezing to death up in the mountains. Just saying.)

Can anyone tell me where the year is going? I will seriously pay you if you can tell me. ;)

6 MONTH BLOGVERSARY: What I've Learned From Being A Blogger

Saturday, April 22, 2017



I've been blogging for six months.

That doesn't feel right. I feel like I've been doing this forever, but six months actually isn't a long time

To celebrate the halfway point to my one year blogversary, I've thought back on the past months and put together a post of all the things I've learned from being a blogger.
