Welcome back to my failing-miserably-at-writing series!
Last time I think I said something about BC being set in Dallas, New York, and Montenegro?
Scratch Dallas and Montenegro off the list. I’m rewriting the whole dang thing. The new settings are just New York and London. I’ve been doing a crap load of research about everything to do with these places (which my dad says is unnecessary. Um, I’m pretty sure I’ll need to know the most common car models and colors in London. Thank you very much)
It’s slow going. I’m keeping most of the beginning, but it’ll be heavily edited feom it’s original form. At least 3 characters are being completely changed, and I’m running out of Sharpies and sticky notes.
Anyway, I know where B will be staying, eating, working, which streets she’ll walk/drive down, but not what airports she’ll be using. Thats the most frustrating thing for me. I’ve never been on a plane, or even in an airport, so I’m basically going off of other book and movie experiences here. Any of you have suggestions?
K, I think thats all I’ll share for now.
Ty for reading! .)
So, the other day my mom and I were going through FB, cuz why not? When I saw these-
The first thing that came to my mind was HALT WOULD WEAR THAT SHIRT!
Then, a couple minutes later, this popped up-
This could have come straight from a Ranger’s Apprentice book. So naturally I asked my mom to send me both pics.
Thats it. Thats the post. I just wanted to share these with y’all.
Have a great day!
Ik its been awhile, and I’m srry. I’ve had a rough few weeks. But now I’m back and I’m gonna try to post once a week at least.
I’m pretty active on my YouTube Alex Charming, and I’m also on Twitter a lot, so y’all can get on to me there if I don’t post.
Anyway, I’m gonna be doing book tags and reviews on Alex’s Charming Books, and this blog will be more personal/dorky.
Not sure what I’ll be posting here yet, but I’m working on it.
Thx to everyone who’s stayed with me this long .)
I am back!!! For the past however long I’ve been gone I have been in a MEGA reading/writing/blogging slump. And also an anti-social slump. Idk.
I went to the night services of church camp and made some new friends.
AND I WATCHED ALL OF SHERLOCK AND I’M DYING CUZ THERE IS NOTHING ELSE TO FREAKING WATCH RN!
Ahem. Well. I turn 17 in less then 2 weeks. That’s new.
For my birthday I’m doing a Truth or Dare video on YouTube. (It’s also celebrating the fact that I have over 100 subs, but whatever)
Just comment your questions or dares.
See y’all Monday?
Its good to see y’all again, I’ve missed being on here for hours on end…..
Earlier today I was getting DW to go to sleep and while doing so I was checking my blog notifications and reader. (This was the first time in about a month, BTW.) And I noticed that everyone had been productive during my hiatus. Well done, you all made me feel guilty enough to sit down and write a post.
I was fine with be lazy and doing nothing but eat, sleep, and read.
Anyway. Today I’m going to tell y’all a little about my newest project.
I’ll call it BC for now (that’s the main characters initials).
Its set in Texas, New York state, and Montenegro.
The main character is a teenage girl whos whole family was murdered and she was blamed for it. So she escapes from the agent who started the blame and is living on the streets of the Dallas Fort Worth area when a man comes after her.
Thats about as far as I’ve got with the writing part, so we’ll stop here.
It has 2 1/2 thousand words and its actually forcing me to do research. I’m planning on writing more after I do the dishes, so there. Take that procrastination! I told everyone my plans so I have to stick to it!
Ooooh! I’m gonna set a word goal for today!
Todays goal is to write another 2000 words. That might not sound like much to some of you, but for me to write 2k in a day is huge. I’ve only ever done it twice before, and both times it was The Oldest Waterpark EVER!!!
Oh, before I go I need to tell you about my most recent project- The Study Couple
Its a short story with only 300 or so words, but everyone says its really good. Which I doubt. But still.
I’m thinking about copyrighting it and putting on here for anyone to read for free.
What do y’all think?
Love, Alex C.
DW Charming was born early Wednesday morning. He’s 11 pounds and 10 ounces. I was actually present at the birth, and I must say THAT WAS TRAUMATIZING!
I still want kids though.
Anyway. Mom gonna be bedridden for a while, so I doubt I’ll be able to post often. But I’ll try!
The rest of us are tired and brain dead, but other then that we’re all good.
WE WATCH THE PRINCESS BRIDE FOR THE FIRST TIME LAST WEEK!
It was awesome! Mason and Gayle loved it, and every single one of us can quote the whole movie!
Life has pretty much come to a stand-still here. We’re waiting on the new baby (he’s 5 days over due) and have been stuck in the house for the past month or so.
On the upside (lol), I’ve started a new project. No details yet, but it has 2250 or so words. I’m really excited about this one!
Another good thing-
I’ve added about 100 new books to my collection since my last post!
The library book sale was a couple weeks ago and I got 30 then, some from our local thrift stores, and last night we went to the new Half Priced Books nearby. At least I won’t be bored waiting for the baby.
My computer stopped working on the internet, so I’ll probably be posting from this IPad for a while.
Well, that’s it! Love y’all!
New vid up!!!
Oh, and happy Easter peoples!!!!!!!!
No, this isn’t a joke. That is literally my life right now.
Yep. I got a job. yay.
I work 4 days a week and earn 8 bucks an hour. Which I guess is ok, but I don’t have time to do much besides work, dishes, and God only knows what other chores my mom has me do. So, blogging, reading, and pretty much every thing else have been shoved to the back burner till further notice.
Not that I’m not reading. I’ve read like 15-20 books so far this year. And I’ve bought 70. So books aren’t really shoved that far.
I’ve also become obsessed with a game called MovieStarPlanet. It’s actually really fun, you get to dress up a little avatar, trade with people, and go shopping. My acc is AdrianMcCoy. (Ya know, if any of you guys play…)
AND!!! My tablet is broken, so until I get it fixed Some Semi-Charming Sims will have to be put on hold.
This is our evil cat. She’s actually much bigger now.
All my bookshelves.
Some of what I got for Christmas.
We finally watched Ragnarok. Mason and Gayle LOVE it. Mason’s favorite is Loki and he told me that Loki had fixed Mjolnir for Thor. BTW awesome movie.
I’m halfway through season 8 of Supernatural.
And that’s it! I think? I’ll do a book haul on ACB soon.
