Paragraphs: How I'm (Sort of) Becoming a Writer #2



Hello, everyone! I'm back to tell you how I'm learning how to be a writer. Just as a disclaimer, this is just some things that I've been learning in my fiction writing workshop. This is just some stuff that helps me. It may not help you, but then again, it might. So with that in mind, let get to what I learned about this week. 

This  workshop we talked about paragraphs. I didn't realize that there were different styles of paragraphs. I just wrote and spaced out the paragraphs whenever it felt right to me, which I guess is a style all of it's own. 
But let's break down paragraphs. For stores, paragraphs are the way for readers to rest or pace their reading. Francine Prose calls them flashes of lightening, which I thought made them so much more dramatic than anything I thought they were. Some writers purposefully don't use paragraphs so that the chaotic mind of the character comes through the writing style as well as the words used. 

One thing we were cautioned against was a single sentence paragraph. When used correctly, they can have a strong dramatic effect. However, if there are too many of them, it's like when someone breaks to hard when their driving. Also, if the sentence was not strong enough, it won't send the correct message to the reader. 

I was also told to be conscious of how the paragraphs break. One sentence could change the tone between two paragraphs, which I honestly didn't believe the first time that I heard it. But I did see how taking the end sentence of one paragraph and placing it at the beginning of the new paragraph can change the tone between resentment and determination. 

Also keeping the paragraphs on topic with the first sentence. I am horrible about doing this. Sometimes, especially when I'm free writing, I get away with a subject and ramble for several sentences and stray away from my first sentence. Making sure the sentences have structure within the paragraphs will have your readers focus on the story rather than making sense of what's going on. 

We didn't have any stories due this week, but next week, we're doing short short fiction. For us, that means a story between three to five pages. So far, I've been having some trouble with it, but I'll let you know more about that next week.

Banned Books That Have Changed My Life: Reading List #1

Banned Books Reading List

Banned Books Reading List by alexandramathews on Polyvore


Hello, everyone! I'm back with the first Reading List! In honor of Banned Book Week, I've come up with a list of books that have been banned in some way or fashion that have changed my life after reading them. I have read each of these books, and they made me changed the way that I look at books and at life.

The first set of books is the Harry Potter series by J. K. Rowling. This series is one of the first literary memories that I have. I had read other books before, but I had never obsessed over a series until Harry Potter. My mother actually got them for my brother in hopes that he would read more. She got them on cassette tapes so that my brother didn't have an excuse not to "read" them. He didn't need one because I ended up taking them, spending hours in front of an old boom box listening to a British guy imitating Hermione's voice. I became obsessed with coming home and rewinding tapes and listening to the books over and over again. Part of me still can't understand how someone can ban this series. 

Now, the Harry Potter series was the first series that caught my attention as a child. This second series first caught my eye as a young adult. Yes, I'm talking about the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer. I know that people have given this series a bad rap and the butt of the joke most of the time, but it changed the way I looked at reading. At the time, I was more focused on reading for school, and I got a copy from one of my friends as a recommendation. I read it and fell in love with it. The next thing I know, the movie is coming out, and I found cosplaying websites dedicated to the Twilight series and the rest was history.

The next series was read when I was in college. It was the first apocalyptic fiction that I read, and, as you may have guessed, that series is The Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins. It was one of the young adult books that, while it had romance and relationships, the focus was on a war and survival. Katniss really spoke to me as a strong character. It gave me something to believe in. Not to mention, the idea of taking reality television and civil war and blending them together was a really cool idea for a book. 

The next series I was actually surprised I actually got to read. I say this because I know that this book was banned because of its view of organized religion. That can stir up controversy anywhere, but my school library kept copies of these books on their shelves. I'm talking about His Dark Materials series by Philip Pullman. All of the books are so imaginative, and yes, they did make me think about religion, including my own. But rather than condemning it, it just made me really think about what religion meant to me. I know that "they" do not want to put religion in a bad light, but it can't be that bad to make people think. Right?

Annie on My Mind by Nancy Garden is another book that I read while I was in college. I've reviewed it on the blog, and I have mentioned how much I really enjoyed this book. I also recommended it to the readers of the blog. Just to recap what I said before, this book in one of the few books that challenged me as a reader. It wasn't that it was too difficult to read. It's that, the main character was different than anything else I read. She had to come to terms with her sexuality, something that has never crossed my mind. It put things in a new perspective for me. 

The next book has gotten some hype the past few months for being a best-selling novel as well as the foundation for one of the best movies this year. But lately it has come under fire at a couple of middle schools for being to risque. Of course, I'm talking about The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. Again, I've review this book already, so I'll try to keep this simple. I've never really liked contemporary style books until I read The Fault in Our Stars. It showed me that a book could still be fantastic without having magic. 

Again, one of the few books that stood the test of time from my childhood is Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carrol. I've also reviewed this for the blog, and I'll keep this brief. As a writer, you try to have things make sense and get your point across to your audience. This book is nonsensical, whimsical, and it is still a great book. To think, this book was banned because the animals spoke. God help those Disney movie makers.

So, try your hand at some of these banned books. While some others may think that these books are too much this or too less of that, they are still great books. I don't believe in banning books, and I think that Banned Book Week is a good way to raise awareness about this issue. Read some banned booked, lovelies. They could change your lives.

That's it for this reading list. Comment down below on banned books that tickle your fancy. Subscribe to the blog by adding your email to the Subscribe Box to the right and down below.

The Maze Runner: Movie Review (Holy Crap We're Getting Another One!)


Hello, everyone! I'm back with another movie review, and this one is actually on time! Today's review is going to be on The Maze Runner based on the book with the same title by James Dashner. This movie has had a lot of immediate success, but let's see if it's worth the hype. Let's get onto the review!

In case you've never read The Maze Runner and don't know what's going on with this movie, let me give you a little break down. Our hero Thomas wakes up in the middle of a gigantic maze knowing nothing of his previous life. Other kids have been trapped in the maze for up to three years without any success of escaping it. When a girl enters the maze, everything changes. They have to fight for their lives and hope the there is life outside the maze.

First impressions of the movie is that I enjoyed it. It stayed true to the book, which I was definitely concerned with. It was also visually pleasing and had a decent cast. With that said, there were some things I thought could improve the movie, but let's get into some specific things that I thought were fabulous.

One thing that I love about the movie was that there were different dynamic themes going on in the movie. What I mean by that is that while it is very much a suspenseful movie, it was also emotional, comical and mysterious. Some of that material comes from the books, yes, but at the end of the day, it has to be executed by the actors. I thought that they were able to pull it off very well.

That brings me to my next point. There were several characters that stole the show for me. The major one was Frypan played by Dexter Darden. To be honest, I don't think he was ever named in the movie, but he had the best lines and perfect comedic timing. In some cases, he said what the audience was thinking, and I really think it was clever. I would love to tell y'all about one of his final comments of the movie, but this is a spoiler-free zone. Let me just say pay special attention to the end of the movie when they come to a door. It's great.

That isn't to say that I didn't enjoy the rest of the cast. I thought Dylan O'Brien was a good Thomas and Kaya Scodelario was a very good Teresa. Their interactions with each other were a little sparse, but I think they developed the trust needed to move forward. Still, it makes me a little worried about the next movie, which I hear is going to come to theaters some time next year.

Another aspect of the movie that I really enjoyed was the ending. Again, this is a spoiler-free zone, so I won't give away what happens, but I think that it may be better than the book ending. It gave a little more clarity to the audience about what was happening. It still had the same punch of emotion that it did in the book, but it make more sense as a whole.

Let's talk about what I thought they could do better. There were some parts of the movie, and it may just be me being blind in a theater, but I couldn't see what was happening in the movie. It would get so dark on some parts that I was squinting in the theater. Again, that may just be a “me” thing.

I also had a problem with the pacing of the movie. There were times were I was waiting for something to happen, and I was waiting too long for it to happen. This movie is being marketed as fast-paced movie, and it just doesn't hit the nail on the head in that aspect.

Still, with all its faults, the movie has made $32 million in the states and $37 in foreign markets, the movie is definitely considered a success. They are also moving forward with the second movie, The Scorch Trials, which will be out in September of next year.

But what do I think about this movie? Well, I thought that it was a good solid movie. I think that you have to be into more of the apocalyptic/dystopian side of movies in order to get the full effect, but it wouldn't be a bad idea to check this movie out if you're at the movies this weekend. Though, chances are, you're probably going to see the Boxtrolls with all the hype its getting. But you need to try out The Maze Runner too!

Merchandise Review: Jace's Stele Necklace



Hello, everyone! I'm back, and I am back with a sort of new series. Really, it's something that I've been doing for awhile, I just haven't had the time to really organize everything. What I'm doing is separating what I've been calling Product Reviews into two groups called Merchadise Reviews and Movie Look-a-Likes. Basically, Merchadise Reviews will be reviews on products that are inspired by a movie but not featured in the movie. Movie Look-a-Likes will be products that were either used in a movie or made to look like a product from a movie. 

This post is going to be a merchandise review of The Mortal Instruments City of Bones stele necklace. The pendant is a silver stele that is a miniature version of what Jace uses in the movie. The chain is a simple small link chain with a clasp. This necklace use to retail for $12.99. I bought mine at Books-a-Million but there is a chance that these were also sold elsewhere.

Let's start out with what I really like about this necklace. The design is simple and really pretty. I enjoy the way that it sits on my neck. It's not to long, and it's not too obtrusive. It's not a piece that people who notice at strange or different, but it is still iconic enough that other Mortal Instruments fans will know what it is.

There was something that bothered me, and it has happened to other Mortal Instruments merchandise. As some of you may know, my Jace necklace that was made by the same company broke after a days of wearing it. Now the same thing has happened to this one. The chain broke two links away from the clasp. It seems like this is a common problem for this company's products, at least the necklaces. It wouldn't be so bad if the necklace were a little cheaper, but then again it was also easy to fix.

Just for reference, I'm going to tell y'all how I fixed my necklace. As you can tell by the photographs, one of the links came apart where the hook meets the chain. Luckily I had left over links from my last repair job and a pair of jewelry pliers. I was able to get the both of these, the first time my necklace broke, was under five dollars at Wal Mart. I simply separated the link, flossed it through both sides of the chain and then reconnected the link with the pliers.

So while I had to fix my necklace after one instance of wearing it, I still really like it. I got it at a discount, and I really like the style of it. I was able to fix it, and so far I have had no other problems with it. If you can find it for cheap and really enjoy the Mortal Instruments, I would suggest getting this necklace.

The Fault in Our Stars: Movie Review! (Yes, It's a Little Late)


Hello, everyone! I'm back with another movie review! This is a little late to the game considering the movie I'm about to review come out a few months ago in theaters and last Tuesday on DVD. Still, I feel the need to review this movie due to the sheer awesomeness that it is. That movie is The Fault in Our Stars based off the best-selling novel by John Green.

So, I've already read and reviewed the book, and we all know how I felt about it. If you don't, the clip version is I love it, like a lot. It's a beautiful story, and it has such a good message. When you put those two together, you have something really amazing on your hands, but enough about that, let's get to the movie.

First off, I went to the movie with high hopes. Along with seeing the beautifully made trailers and stalking the Page to Premiere website, I got all the facts about how the movie was made and who was in a part of the process. Thank goodness producer Wyck Godfrey and writer John Green were a major part of the movie making process. From what I heard, everyone onset was not only creating the best movie they could, but hope to have the approval of the author, which they did.

Just in case you haven't read the book or seen any of the trailers or commercials that were dedicated to the movie, here's a little synopsis about the movie. The movie is about two kids, Hazel and Gus, who are terminally ill and meet at a support group. From there, they try to make Hazel's dream come true, meet the author of her favorite book.

I saw this movie in theaters with my mother. As a cancer survivor, I wanted to get her opinion about the movie and get her take on it. I mentioned it was a bit of a tear-jerker but had a good story, and she finally caved and went with me.

My first reaction was that the movie was a great representation of the book. As a lover of the book, that made me incredibly happy. It didn't stray from the book. And more than that, the movie had the same feeling that the book did. When I was watching the movie, I felt the same as when I was reading the book. It was clever and well executed. It was funny when it was supposed to be funny and sad when I was supposed to be sad. It was really incredible.

From someone who hadn't read the book, my mom said that she really enjoyed the movie. She thought that their feelings about their illnesses and how that effected their families really hit home for her. We were definitely both tearing up during the movie. Heck, I'm tearing up just thinking about it.

There was one thing that irked me. I understood why they did what they did, but as a book reader I was expecting something a little different, and really, it is the difference of a couple of words. They changed the last line of the book in the movie, and it bothered me. However, given the symbolism of the line that they chose, I can give them a little leeway.

I'm just going to say that I also loved the actors that they chose for this movie. I was a little concerned with the fact that I had just seen them play in Divergent, but they are professionals. I thought I would think about them in their formal roles, but they made their characters come to life. I couldn't help but think of Woodley as Hazel and Elgort as Gus.

With all of that said and done, I have to say that everyone should see The Fault in Our Stars. Like I said before, you can get this movie on DVD or get a digital copy from online stores such as iTunes and Amazon. I hope that everyone will have the same experience with this movie as I did.

Well, that's it for this post! Comment down below on other movies you would like for me to review.

How I'm Sort of Becoming a Writer: Breaking the Rules



Hello, everyone! I'm back, and today I'm starting a new series of blog posts called "How I'm Sort of Becoming a Writer." After taking a couple of fiction writing workshops and dipping my toes in the sea of writing for a public audience, I still feel like I'm learning how to write a sentence more than three people will like. (Bet you didn't think that's how that sentence would end.) Still, I feel like I'm learning more with each workshop, and I thought I would share what I'm learning.

So, this past workshop we worked on flash fiction. At least, that is what my professor calls it. After reading so much fanfiction these past few weeks (not to mention my on-again off-again love affair with it for the past decade), I would call it a drabble. It's a piece of fiction that under a thousand worlds, usually about two hundred to seven hundred words, that tells an entire story. We looked at a few flash fictions in class. There was everything from instructional to narrative stories. The trouble with them is completing the story without getting wordy.

I feel like it is a bit easier to write flash fanfiction because you have the benefit of your audience knowing the characters before reading a word of your story. However the difficulty, I found it enjoyable writing a piece of flash fiction for my class.

The idea for my story came to me while I was folding my laundry. I found a lone sock in the midst of all my nice folded laundry and paired socks. It bothered me, probably more than it should have, and then the story came to me. I wrote about a person who was obsessive compulsive and how they went about their morning.

When I was writing it, I tried to stay in the mindset of my narrator. There was a lot of fragments and it jumped from one point to another, but I feel as if that was necessary to stay true to the character. This, of course, breaks some of the "rules" of writing. But, from what I learn in class and from my own trial and error, it's okay to break the rules as long as you know what those rules are.

I liked breaking the rules. I felt like I was letting out a breath that I'd been holding since I had started my so-called writing career. I finally got to do what I wanted to do, and I think that some of the people in my workshop actually enjoyed reading it. More importantly I think that people understood what I was going for.


Well, that's it for this segment of "How I'm Sort of Becoming a Writer." Expect more of these posts as workshops go on. And heads up! There's a new Subscribe Box that's off to the right. I'm hoping that this one will work better than the one down at the bottom, but try both just in case! You can add me to your circles by clicking the Google+ button off to the right.

How to Be a Heroine: Archery Equipment


Hello, everyone! I'm back with another installment of How to Be a Heroine! The heroine that is being featured in this post, as well as some further installments of this series, is Katniss Everdeen of The Hunger Games series. Today, we're going to be starting with square one of archery: the equipment.

The first thing you're going to need is a bow. There are three main types of bows, two of which are used by Katniss in The Hunger Games, and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Katniss uses a longbow when she's hunting beyond the fence of District 12, and she uses a recurve bow while she is in the arena.

A longbow is a traditional bow, and like its name implies, it very tall. Usually it is about as tall as the user, but mine comes up to my shoulder. When it is not strung, the bow lays flat, but has a "D" shape when it strung. These bows typically have a long range, and they have a longer pull because of their length.



A recurve bow is another traditional bow. When it is strung, the tips of the bow curve away from the archer. Because of the extra tension that this bow provides, it tends to have more power than the traditional longbow. Katniss uses the recurve bow while she is in the arena.



The last major type of bow is a compound bow, which is a modern bow that uses pulleys, cables, and a levering system to bend the limbs. This bow is stronger than both the longbow and the recurve bow. This bow was not used in the first and second movies. While Mockingjay the book describes the bow that Katniss uses having special features, it is possible that she could be using a compound bow. But in pictures taken on set, she is using a recurve bow.



For our purposes, I'm going to be focusing on the longbow and recurve bow. Now, you can buy these bows in archery shops or sporting goods stores if you are lucky. I actually bought my longbow online at etsy.com. It was actually made from PVC pipe, and it's working out quite well. You can find the etsy shop that I found it at this link. My recurve bow is actually given to me by my uncle. It belonged to my late grandfather. So other than finding a really cool hobby, I'm also learning a skill that my grandfather practiced. Since Katniss got one of her bows from her father, I thought it was only fitting to have a bow passed down in my family.




Another good thing to have is arrows. You need to have strong enough arrows so that the force of the bow does not break the arrow. Plus the arrow needs to be the right weight so that it does not immediately drop to the ground or fly off course. For this you need to find out your bow's strength and pick one accordingly. The best thing to do is to go to your local sporting store and ask for help. That's what both my brother and I did to match our arrows to our bows. Also make sure that the length of the arrow matches the length of your arm so that you have the proper pull for your bow.


Another thing that is necessary for archery is a bow string. One of my strings came with my bow, and the other string my great uncle procured for me. You can get your strings from sports and archery stores. If you are using a traditional bow, be sure to mention that when looking for the correct string. 



The next few things that I am going to list are not necessarily needed in order to shoot a bow. However, if you are going to spend enough money for a bow, arrows, and string, you'll probably want to practice with your bow regularly. These things will help you practice, especially if you are new to shooting a bow.

The first thing you may want to look into purchasing is a quiver. Many people have been using hip quivers that attach to a belt or a belt loop. I prefer the back quiver that Katniss uses. You can get both of these types of quivers on Amazon.com, but I made my own quiver. I hope that I'll be able to show y'all all what I did to make it in a later episode of How to Be a Heroine.




The next thing that I would suggest investing in is an arm guard. This piece of equipment protects your arm from the backlash of the string. For the first few times that I practiced with my bow, I had incredibly large and painful bruises because one: I did not have the proper technique to actually shoot a bow and two: I didn't have the proper gear to protect myself. I was lucky enough to have a great uncle look at the bruises and knew what they were. He got me one that makes my arm incredibly happy. You can get yours on Amazon.com and local sporting stores.




The last thing I think would be good for those considering archery is a shooting glove. It protects the tips of the three fingers that pull the string back. If you plan on doing target practice and continuously fire the bow, you'll probably get a lot of wear and tear on the tips. Again you can get these at a sporting goods store or online shops like Amazon.com.



Of course, you will need a place to shoot your bow. Your best bet is to do a Google search of shooting ranges around your area. If you're like me and live in the middle of nowhere, you can get a few hay bales or target blocks from Wal Mart and shoot behind your house.

 

So now you have everything you need to start your Katniss training! Know that this is just what I think you would need in order to start shooting a bow. It would also be beneficial to you to visit your local shooting ranges and sporting stores and get an experts opinion. Again, I am not the end all for all things archery. I just hope that you find enough interest to take the necessary steps for you to feel comfortable pulling back the string. Next time, I'll talk about technique and strengthening exercises that you can do in between shooting.


So that's it for this edition of How to Be a Heroine! Let me know down below of other heroines and abilities you would like to see in upcoming episodes.
