Happy Friday, everyone!
I hope you’re all doing well! This was a pretty busy week, but a good one too. I had a great time at the Battle Royale event last Saturday (even though my favorite character lost), and my lab session went well too.
This week, I shared the writing lessons I learned from Ally Carter’s Gallagher Girls series, which I just finished re-reading recently. If you need tips on writing three-dimensional female characters, adult characters that aren’t useless, or making your narration unique, be sure to give it a read!
Song of the Week
- From John Crist: Christian Breakup Lines (Why are we breaking up? Call me Matt Redman because I’ve got TEN THOUSAND REASONS)
In school… It was kinda of a crazy week , since it was the first week that none of my classes were cancelled. Since our science lab was cancelled last week, we had two experiments to do on Monday, but I actually had a good time doing them. I also started training for my tutoring job this week, which made things a little busier, but I had fun with that too.
Writing… Poetry, mostly, for one of my classes, but I’ve also been reworking “Summertime,” one of my older ideas. I want to try rewriting it for Camp NaNoWriMo in April, but for now, I’m just experimenting with different POVs, plot directions, and so on. It’s hard work, but I think it’ll be worth it in the end.
Playing… some Pokemon and Zelda still, but I’ve been kinda taking a small break from those and playing Super Mario Odyssey again. It’s a fun game, and although platformers aren’t my strong suit, it’s nice to play something a little different every now and again.
Looking forward to… spending the weekend at home! My brother’s last basketball game is on Saturday, so I decided to come home and support his team. Plus, I needed to get an oil change for my car and a haircut for me, so it was good timing. I’m excited to spend some time with my family!
Thankful for… hanging out with friends at the library, new jeans, having fun in lab, getting a summer job interview, and finishing the website I’ve been working on.
