Some Twisted Teasers
I think I have been more of a studious, writing machine in the past 2 weeks than I have been in the past few months! I've written a 5-page English paper in the past 3 days (after having submitted another one merely days before), memorized over 50 flashcards for a Psych test since yesterday, and wrote 4 cover letters for internships today (and submitted them all). Only 8 more to go!
The good news is I got a good grade on the aformentioned, already-submitted paper, and am mostly done with the work on the most recent paper and studying. I'm a bit nervous about putting myself out into the internship world, so any of your good thoughts would be greatly appreciated!
I've also somehow brainstormed 5 NEW story ideas in the past 12 hours and have reinstated 3 other ones in the same period. I now have 16 book ideas lined up after The Belgrave Legacy (and by the time I make a dent of 3, I'll probably have at least 2 more to replace them. Which means I need to put a pedal to the metal to get a job, stay on top of my schoolwork, and stay on top of the ever-multiplying plot bunnies.
What are you focusing on in the near future? Sound off below.
I haven't been able to do much more writing since my last post, but I have received 2 awesome books from Amazon on writing:
Aren't they positively GORGEOUS?
I've also been stockpiling books on my Kindle app. Some of my favorites have been...
Two summers ago, I had the amazing opportunity to intern with Katie Ford's anti-human trafficking organization, Freedom For All (FFA and previously known as the Katie Ford Foundation). Daughter of the deceased Gerard W. Ford and Eileen Ford, the founders of the Ford Modeling Agency (or "Ford Models"), Ms. Ford ran the agency for 12 years until she sold the company in 2007.
Not only was the Ford Modeling Agency the most successful of its time, it was known for its deep concern for the safety and well being of the young women it represented. Using the knowledge and values ingrained in her from having grown up in her family and in this business world, Ms. Ford was not only became the successful CEO of the agency but also transferred her knowledge of the careful regulations needed to ensure the models' safety to the cause of anti human trafficking. Freedom For All is dedicated to raising awareness of the largely "invisible" problem of human trafficking. FFA focuses on educating businesses on how to have systems in place that treat their employees fairly and protect them from human-trafficking.
The latest draft is DONE! I have to say that my last mandatory writing break (due to school work), while frustrating, was well needed. Since I got back to work in the past week, I have FLOWN through the chapters making last-minute edits and revisions and finished today. Plot has changed, chapters cut, combined, and reorganized for a much more cohesive story (which is really the whole point of revising, right?).
And almost immediately after I hit Save, I was lucky enough to find my One True Critique Partner (OTCP) Jessi Elliott on Swoon Reads' 2016 Critique Partner/Beta Reader match-up post (#BeMyBeta) which is similar to Maggie Stiefvater's Critique Partner Love Connection post from last year.
I'm a self-published author (because being a college student wasn't hard enough!) and spend most of my time doing homework. I write YA multi-genre fiction for young adults or the young at heart. I love NCIS, BBC's Sherlock,
