On the first of the month, I opened up a survey for you to ask ALL the questions about my writing, and I answered them in the video below.

YES I ACTUALLY TALKED. #introvertaccomplishments

{DREAMS AND CALLINGS} the best is yet to come

Saturday, July 15, 2017

 This time last year, I was still a ballet dancer. I haven't talked about it much in a long while, but I'm suddenly remembering where I was July 2016: dancing literally 24/7 and aiming for a career as a professional dancer.

I wrote a more in-depth post on this in December, but, long story short, I got injured and had to stop dancing. And -- trust me -- when you stop doing something that you'd been doing nonstop for a long time, it feels really weird/horrible = rough months and moments of feeling utterly lost.

i'm so behind on tags {TAG MASH-UP}

Saturday, July 8, 2017
 
Tags. Yes. Haha... *clears throat*  May was a month of tags, and since I'm still relatively new to blogging, I didn't account for switching my regular posts with tags. Now I have an overload of tags that are getting old. I still plan to do some, but in the meantime, I smashed a few together. I'm really sorry that I wasn't able to do them, but I've learned my lesson. :P Thus, this tag mash-up.

So get ready for me to answer a bunch of random questions from the Sunshine Blogger tag, and the Bookish Book Lover tag, and the Liebster Award tag :D

(I fit in about 18 questions)

1. What's one random thing about you that few people know?

 (aka... I haven't done this since April, have I?)

HOW IS IT SUMMER?!?!? I have creepily vivid memories of this time last year, so it doesn't seem right that summer 2017 is already here :P

So how did I kick off my summer?

#RebelliousWriting {AFRAID TO TURN THE PAGE}

You've probably seen this thing called Rebellious Writing going around blogsphere lately. It was started by Gray as a rebellion against all the horrible stuff in the YA genre these days. This movement is making me do the happy dance, because I believe clean YA is really, really important.

Books are amazing. Stories are powerful. I rambled on about that a few weeks ago. But while stories can be powerful in amazing ways by inspiring us to do good, they can also do the opposite. Imagine if all the glorious power stories have was used for the other extreme.

Ouch. That looks dark. That looks gritty. That looks dangerous.

And that is what's happening to YA books today.
