My Blogging Routine

Welcome to another BTS for Bloggers post, today I will be sharing my blogging routine. I finally go into a blogging routine and I would love to share this with everyone. The reason I'm doing this post is because when I first started blogging I was clue lists and I would search for posts like this and I couldn't find any sort of thing like it. I'm really hoping this gives some inspiration to try this method out or find something that works for you guys. I like this because it is very flexible and I can shift around most likely this will be something I do during the weekend, but as of right now I do it more freely.  Let's jump into the post.

Hello, everyone and welcome to my series called Back to School for Bloggers. In this series of posts I will be sharing tips on how get organized for school and still have run a blog. It is that time of season where we are heading back to school. You can call me a nerd if you want, but I love school absolutely love it and adding to the fact that I'm graduating this year it adds in to more of the excitement. Last year I struggled a lot with this and I really wanted to find some posts on how other people do it and I found nothing and I'm hoping with this series someone might get the help that they need.

In the coming weeks I will be sharing anything from my planning system to a back to school haul. August 28th at 2:00 PM I will be hosting my first ever Twitter chat dealing with the Back To School season. I would love to have you come and join me with it. We will be using the hashtag #BTSblogger.

Whether if you are already back in school or going back to school this information will hopefully help you. Running a blog and still having a great school year is what a lot of bloggers want. The feat seems like a challenge and it is, but if you love doing it then its worth finding a way. Buckle up and relax because we are all in this for the long run. Lets make this school year the best we all ever had. Remember keep looking for your Once Upon A Time.

Writing Update # 3

I have a confession to make I failed Camp NaNoWriMo and I really wanted to make it work, but July wasn't a good month for writing or anything really. I did read 7 books in the month of July which was great. I do have some updates on my writing life that I would like to share with my lovely readers.

First, I came up with some new ideas. Is there other people who always have ideas flowing in their head? Because I can come up with ideas out of the blue and it's really hard to focus on what I want to write. Sometimes I wish that Alexander Hamilton could teach me how to write like I'm running out time, but I'm okay with taking my time on the my WIP because I don't want the manuscript to feel like I'm rushing it.

Second, is that I'm rewriting the beginning of my story because it feels like it was rushed and I didn't have my main character voice developed enough. Now that I rewritten the first chapter everything else seems to flow a lot better, though I still have four more chapters to fix. The reason this even became an issue was that I wrote the first chapter when I didn't know how I wanted it to go, so I pushed through it. Don't get me wrong pushing through that writer's block really works, but it threw the whole story off. I'm happy that I caught this problem now because now rather than later. I'm also fixing my issue of being an underwriter. Another thing that I'm really working on is showing instead of telling. I noticed that I'm horrible at telling rather than showing. To add on to the list of my improvements is editing. In real life my grammar sucks and sometimes my brain works faster than what I say and or write, to fix this I been trying to crack down on editing my posts before I post them.

The next thing I wanted to update everyone on is I started doing a brain dump on a different idea. My main goal of this is try to find a way that works for me when it comes to planning out a novel. I have tablet that has all the basics of the story in it. I will be also adding things as I go long, like having character profiles and everything else in this high fantasy world that needs to make this world just as believable as real one. I'm love with creating this whole new world from scratch and I think its a lot of fun.

How's everyone WIP doing? I hope everyone's writing life is doing good and that you all are making progress on your novels. Stay in tune for mor writing posts in the future. Remember keep looking for your Once Upon A Time.

In My Once Upon A Time #3

In My Once Upon A Time is a monthly wrap-up that comes out on the fourth of every month well it normally does, this month I want to see how it works on the first of the month. I can't believe this is my third In My Once Upon A Time already. I been blogging consistently for three months on this new blog. I'm in love with what I'm doing and I feel like everything is improving about this blog. The month of July was not a good month for me and my family. Our vacation went horribly wrong and then we had a family emergency. I'm currently in a boot to help my ankle heal. On some better notes I got my schedule for school, got accepted to a college, I have been reading a whole lot more, I created an Instagram account, I also have some events that I'm planning, and I even close to reaching some of quarterly goals!!!! I guess with everything bad that happened this month a lot of good things happened and I'm super excited for this month. Sorry, for the long introduction let's jump into the main post.
