I have recently come across this really cool book by the name of "The Writer's Little Helper". It has some really great points to writing and I will make sure to post about them soon. Some of the tips include a Ten Scene idea, instead of outlining (and I didn't realize it at first, but, I already do that when I write. XD), and has some nifty tips about keeping track of characters and such. =) It is a great investment.

Sometimes, good hard work is all you need to clear your mind. I always find it helpful to do some yard work (like I did today), or do some chores around the house when you are frustrated over something, trying to make a decision over something, or stuck with writer's block. I don't know why, but usually, that helps to make things click, if you know what I mean. =)
Anyway, class and work keep me very busy, but I am determined to keep blogging. =) Very soon, I will get back into the drift of things on here and I hope to be speaking with you all again on a more daily basis. Until then, I will continue to post the snippets that I can, as often as I can. =)
P.S. For any of you who love Legend of Zelda as much as I do, here is an interesting little video of an improve for Sariah's Song. =)

Sometimes you have to make a really tough decision, and though it may not be easy to come to a conclusion, there is usually one. We may not like the end result, but that is where the phrase: "When one door closes, another one opens", and other such great quotes from history. So, when faced with a decision, and you really have to sit there and ponder your choices, it is a good way to start by outlining your pros and cons. Just a helpful tip, as I try to figure out some decisions myself. =)

Today was eventful. Despite the fact that it is about 40 something degrees Fahrenheit outside, my best friend and I decided to go to the beach to record a quick video for our friend from Scotland, who will be interning at the boardwalk down by us this summer. We are both super excited for him to arrive and hope that he will enjoy his stay and time visiting us in the States. =)

Since it's a rainy day today (doesn't it seem to be raining in most of my posts lately? Hm....XD), I'd like to suggest that a game that could be good to play today is Scrabble. Practically everyone knows how to play it.
But, okay, say that your family is really big into electronics, then you could perhaps play a multi-player game on your game system, or maybe you all have a movie that you could watch tonight?
Or, maybe it's nice outside where you live and you'd like to do something outside? If you'd like any suggestions, just comment below. =)
