Pinky Promise

Hola readers!

Currently have two reads right now: Time’s Convert by Deborah Harkness and Eleanor and Grey by Brittainy Cherry…

Today’s post is about Eleanor and Grey. The two main characters have a pinky promise. You know an author was likely born in the 90s if they use “pinky promise” in the story. Pinky promises were serious growing up…Had a drop of nostalgia, thought I’d share.

When were you born? What are some of your favorite childhood habits, sayings, memories?

Links both books below…

Random Findings

Currently reading The Girl Who Chased the Moon by Sarah Addison Allen, and I’ve had the decent find of coconut cake and fried chicken being associated with funerals. You can’t be serious?! Coconut is my favorite!Guess it really is to die for! *dorky laugh*

In order to know what the heck I’m talking about… you’ll have to read….no spoilers here… Just a random find 😉

Writing in the Air

Summer is here. I am less busy with clinicals more busy with studying for the next set of boards (standardized tests suck). In order to stay at least somewhat sane I’ve upped my reading game (and movie watching). It has inspired me to write. I feel words on my tongue. I feel a story in my heart. I just have no idea what to write about.

Confession: Reading and watching movies= escapism for me. It’s the one time in my life where I am not here in the boring realm of reality. I am not miserable studying (standardized tests suck). I am not my crazy, neurotic, calculating, self-critical, type-A self. I am just in the moment.

Lately, even the movies and the books (minus the In-Death Series) haven’t been hitting the escapism spot. I am constantly changing the show’s or the book’s story. I come up with different scenarios, write different characters in, b**** about how they shouldn’t have done that. Cry when a character of mine is mistreated (apparently I’m a little over-sensitive, it’s the empath ok?!).  The point: no-one is channeling my emotions the way I want them. Solution: I should write my own d*** stuff lol.  If only I could put my thoughts and feelings into words.

To my writers: What’s your process? How do you bring your story to life?

My readers/watchers: Ever felt like the author just didn’t get the story write? Are you super-emo, empathic to your story-line?

Addictions

I’m a part of a book group on Facebook. I love it! It makes my book fetish feel so much more…..normal! However, it also feeds my book buying addiction. I have since learned that Dollar Tree has books and there is a website called Thriftbooks.  I have been trying to fight the urge to go to both. My bank account is begging me not too. So I sit here scratching like the book addict I am, wondering how long it is going to take before I cave.   Say a small prayer for me 😉
