Blog Hiatus Is Officially OVER... And I Brought Gifts


Hello, blogging buddies!!!!! I missed you!!!!!

Did you miss ME???


Oh, wait... don't answer that...

So. Blog Hiatus is kaput. I have returned.

AND I brought two lovely gifts for all of you!!!

Gift #1: Best Writing Advice EVER

So. During my blog hiatus, I went to see Kung Fu Panda 2. It was too much awesome for words. BUT I can speak about something that's very important for Po, the movie's main character. Before he can defeat his antagonist (a very fluffy and evil and annoying peacock), he must achieve one teeny weeny thing--inner peace

Why am I implying Po's inner peace is related in any way, shape or form to writing? Well, imagine you're Po. Now imagine your WIP is that fluffy and evil and annoying peacock. You can't tackle the WIP when you're frustrated, or when you don't value yourself as a writer, right? How about when you think this whole writing thing is a waste of your time? Or when life gets in the way so often, you can't get yourself to stop and organize the chaos around you? 

Being happy with yourself as both a person and writer is what will motivate you to go further. And sometimes, that happiness will be the result of taking a step back and just reevaluating things. It's okay to stand aside and not push through the blues, or pretend they're not happening. Accept your truth, and inner peace will just come running after you. 

Gift #2: Pics of Fake Boyfriends (SUPERNATURAL Edition)

You knew this was coming, didn't you??? DIDN'T YOU???

Well, here they are:

And my personal favorite...

You're welcome.

Now tell me: WHAT HAVE YOU BEEN DOING ALL THIS TIME??? Any books or movies I should check out???


  1. You're back! *tackles and hugs* Congrats on finishing out the school year. It's amazing how much a writer's thoughts and mindset can affect creativity, and I totally agree with your panda-induced wisdom.

  2. Welcome back! And thanks for the Supernatural photos...that last one is definitely my new favorite!!

  3. Welcome back! I just returned to the blogoverse today too. Trying to get back in full gear. I've already seen Bridesmaids three times, so yeah...I'd recommend it.

  4. Yay!!!!!!! I'm glad you're back.
    And yum to the Supernatural photos... I finally get to watch season 6 from June 8th :D

  5. Yay!! Welcome back! And much props for hooking us up with some Supernatural pics. As far as movies, it's not everyone's taste, but Quita and I got stomach cramps for laughing so hard at The Hangover 2. :)

  6. Awww welcome back!!! Yay!!! Yes a happy writer makes for a joyous story!! Take care

  7. We're still on semi-hiatus by pretending it isn't June yet. ;)

    Thanks for the pics - we're too busy to watch movies this month but are SO READY for the summer season! Hope you had a great May!

  8. Yay! Welcome back, and thank you for the gifts. :) I needed to hear that about inner peace as a writer. You rock.

  9. Welcome back!!!! We've missed you. Would love to see Kung Fu Panda. I'll probably see Thor for the second time. (drools)

  10. I always welcome the Winchesters. That last picture is a hoot.

  11. THANKS, everyone!!! So, so happy to be back in the game!! :)

    Haven't seen Bridesmaids yet (I. Know.), but I saw The Hangover 2 and yes, it did make me laugh. A lot.

    Oh, and as for the Winchester pics? You are all very welcome :)
