Hi All, It's been insane here lately. School. Work. Preparing for internship. And, oh yeah, a trip to Malaysia. In undergraduate, I met a wonderful girl who lived in Malaysia, and was studying in the States. We quickly became best friends. She spent many nights at my house, and soon I had dubbed her my … Continue reading Fun.
Hey guys, So I just randomly stumbled upon this little gem a few minutes ago and wanted to share it with all of you. This link comes from Linda, the Book Lady on YouTube (but I found it on Pinterest): http://lindajm.hubpages.com/hub/writing-prompts-for-creative-writing-inspiration So, just as the title of this post says, here you will find 365 writing … Continue reading 365 Writing Prompts!
Hey, Taylor here! We're starting a new series here at Inklings where we talk about our favorite authors. For me, though, it's a little more complicated than just listing my favorite authors (yes, there are more than one). I tend to pick my favorite authors based on a certain book. For example, while I love … Continue reading Let’s Play Favorites!
This will be a short post because I just got a new kitten that I want to go cuddle with. Her name is Echo, she can't meow, and she's absolutely adorable. 🙂 So, when I started thinking about what I wanted to write, I realized that I could kind of track my life by what … Continue reading Echoes and Timelines
I don't know what I'm doing. In writing, or in life. In life, there's school and work and volunteering. I'm just trying to make it all fit together somehow. Sometimes it feels like taking two puzzle pieces that absolutely do not fit and mashing them with your fist until they're wedged together. Sometimes, like tonight, … Continue reading Mashing Puzzle Pieces
I don't like funerals. They freak me out, honestly. But today I went to one. I donned my black high heels that are only worn for special occasions, grabbed a few tissues and prepared myself for a hard day. I needed to say goodbye to a family friend, and I did. This post isn't about funerals, … Continue reading I don’t like funerals.
So, this is me being random. This is also me sharing 5 secrets about myself as a writer. Enjoy! I don’t write in the Christian genre. As I mentioned in an earlier post, write what you don’t know. And I know Christianity. It’s all I’ve ever known, so I tend to stray away from this … Continue reading Randomness!
That was the title of my first poem. I was around 10 when I wrote it, and one of the stanzas went something like this: Home is not just a place where you eat and sleep Home is not just a place built to make a place look neat Home is where the heart is. … Continue reading Home is Where the Heart is
I honestly have no idea what I want to say in this post. I feel like I should come out with some profoundly wise advice that will change your writing game forever—but hey, if I could do that I would be rich. We’re writing about perspectives this time around, and I still really don’t know … Continue reading My Thoughts on Writer’s Block (Cue Scary Music)
You wring your hands, knowing what you’re about to say isn’t necessarily a popular opinion, but it needs to be said. You take a deep breath, then let it out. Here goes nothing. “Fine,” you squeak, “I’ll admit it. I love second-person point of view.” 😉 Sorry, as cheesy (and dramatic) as that might have … Continue reading You
