Daily Writing – July 20th, 2016

Humans of Bookstores

I am so pleased to announce a new section to my site, entitled Humans of Bookstores.  This fun, new category will feature strangers and their stories from the bookstores I visit.

I decided that seeing as I take photos of books while I’m in bookstores…why not take photos of the people reading them as well?  They are obviously there for a reason and deserve to have their story told, just as much as the stories they’re purchasing.

I’m so grateful to every single one of the people that allow me to not only interview them, but to take a few minutes out of their day to talk to me about the books they love.  Reading is one of those things that bring people together and I’m so lucky to be apart of such an amazing community.

Not only will I be featuring their stories/quotes on this site, but I’ll also be featuring them on Facebook, InstagramTumblr, & Twitter as well.  Be sure to give us a follow there for the easiest way to be notified of new interviews!

NaNoWriMo 2015

I am so excited to be participating in NaNoWriMo this year, for the first time in over 4 years.  The last time I attempted this challenge, I was a sophomore in high school – a mere 16-years-old, facing the book writing world with the thought that I would publish my first book by the time I turned 18.

Unfortunately, that didn’t happen and I am nearing 4 years past my original goal of 18 and published.  I am excited, however, for the time I had away from the writing field for me to really realize how much the whole community meant to me.
