Hi all! I know I‘m not very active on here because my life got swallowed up this year and I haven‘t done a lot of reading, but I swear I‘ll be back at some point lol just wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year!!!!!! 🎄💝🥂

And a special thank you to @Dogearedcopy for the adorable card and recipe!! Can‘t wait to try it out‼️

Crinoline_Laphroaig Life gets messy. Stop by when you can. 14mo
Dogearedcopy Just a quick note: It should be * 14 OZ VANILLA WAFERS* (NOT 14 14-OZ Vanilla Wafers!) 🤦🏻‍♀️ 14mo
FictionFox @Dogearedcopy HAHAHA I didn‘t even notice that I just read it as 14 oz vanilla wafers at first. Omg lol could you imagine? 😂 14mo

Hey everyone! My friend and I created a discord server for writers! Considering #NaNoWriMo starts tomorrow, we wanted to debut it today! There are channels for discussion, writing exercises, editing help and more! The invite is below if you‘re interested! Be sure to start at the top channel (Jurassic Park) and work your way down to see how the server works and what the channels are! 📝

FictionFox @LiterRohde on both! They send you an email at the end of the year with it 2y
LiterRohde So this was 2017 totals? Can you get info like this monthly? Sorry for all the questions. I have an excel sheet that does some of this, but not all. And between Litsy, Insta, FB, and Twitter, and a new blog, I‘m wondering if it is worth starting another social. I‘m trying to start a bookish brand of sorts with all things books like quotes, reviews, pictures, etc. Each platform seems to have a focus and is better for certain formats. Thoughts? 2y
FictionFox @LiterRohde oooh nice idea! I‘m not sure if they do monthly. I haven‘t seen anything like that. I just know it‘s annually :/ you could probably search around the site though and see if there‘s an option? 2y

Was supposed to post this yesterday but got busy writing. My #NaNoWriMo project is going so well! Already at 37k words for the month, bringing my story to 80k+ so far in total! The only sad part is knowing I'll have to cut so much in the revisions. :(

FictionFox @SilversReviews yes I love mine too! I finally got a clear hard case for it too so the pink isn't covered, but it's still protected. I love it so much. 2y
SilversReviews @FictionFox. May I know where you purchased the cover? Mine is already scratched. :(. QUESTION: does your spacebar stop working at times? 2y
FictionFox @SilversReviews I got it off Amazon! I'll get back to you with the exact name in a sec. As for the space bar, yes, but it's usually because something managed to get caught under it like a crumb or something. I usually just have to press it hard a few times and it'll start working again. It happens to some of the other keys too something. Never anything too bad though. 2y
FictionFox @SilversReviews okay it's the Mosiso Plastic Hard Case Cover. Just double check the specs to make sure you're getting the right size whether it's 12 or 13 inches etc. :) 2y
SilversReviews @FictionFox THANKS. I think the keys are so close to the base it is easy to get stuck. Mine wouldn‘t work at all one day. I used a low, cool hair dryer setting and it must have gotten out the crumb. :) 2y
SilversReviews @FictionFox sorry to ask another question but did you get the key cover? 2y
SilversReviews Just ordered it. :) THANKS. 2y
FictionFox @SilversReviews ah sorry! Work got busy 😂 but let me know how the case turns out! Must protect the pretty laptops 2y
SilversReviews @FictionFox we must. 😍 2y
SilversReviews @FictionFox I received my cover in the mail today. Thanks for the tip. I love it. 2y
JazzFeathers Wow!!! That's such a super duper mark! I'm just a little bit over where l'm supposed to be, so l won't complsin. The story is 😉collaborating. What is yours about? 2y
FictionFox @JazzFeathers awesome!! Mine is a YA Contemporary Fantasy. I think that's the best way to describe it haha modern day high school vibe but like there are new kids in school and magic and shenanigans ensue. Lol what about yours?? 2y
JazzFeathers @FictionFox Cool! 😁😁 Mine is an histrorical fantasy set in Germany in 1926 and losely based on Snow White. At least that's where l started, but characters seem to havd their own idea about hiw the story should anfold 😂 2y
FictionFox @JazzFeathers oooh sounds super intriguing! And I love when that happens! My characters take over my story all the time. Lol 2y

Hi all! I wanted to apologize for my absence lately and for getting back late to anyone who commented/tagged me in anything. I've actually been working on a writing project for the past 3 weeks or so that I'm super excited about. Trying out NaNoWriMo as an extra push to get the first draft down. So again, apologies for my long absences. But I still love you all! ❤️😁

I hate making monthly TBR lists because I never stick to them. But here are 3 books I *do* intend of reading this month, along with whatever other ones I end up picking up.

Going to attempt books 2&3 of the All for the Game series by Nora Sakavic and also Fragments of Darkness, which is an anthology of short horror stories. I typically don't read horror but it's October soooo 👻

Mehso-so

I'm so sad about this. This series has such a huge following, but the first book left me so unsatisfied. Too many questions and plot holes left open and it ended so abruptly with nothing tied up (and not in the exciting cliffhanger way). I was more confused than blown away. I don't know. Gonna attempt the second book. We'll see. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I did it! I finished just in time for Tower of Dawn tomorrow! Beginning back in April I started my Throne of Glass reread. It was supposed to be 1 book a month, leaving August for any days I fell behind. I got too cocky and started reading other books and leaving ToG to the side. I got right down to the wire, starting Queen of Shadows Saturday night. Read all 89 chapters in 2 days and I can finally say I made it! Chaol Westfall I am ready for you!

FictionFox And for anyone wondering about EoS, I did the reread so I could follow Chaol's story. Since he's not is EoS, I didn't plan to read it before ToD, and will instead read it after. 2y
