Everyday and September Nano

Image
Have to thank Jay Noel whose post today I Can't Feel My Face inspired me to do a slightly longer post today. At first it was only going to be about my nano but now there will also be music. You all love music right?




I knew it, let's go!
A song that I heard over the weekend and got me thinking quite a bit was Everyday by ASAP Rocky feat. Rod Stewart, Miguel and Mark Ronson. How much do I enjoy and think about this song? I got to memorizing all these names by the second viewing (of the credits) on televsion. Yes I am still one of those strange people who keep forgetting to just go on Youtube. I did look online later but that was to check out what the song was about. Yes, still have not looked it up on Youtube but you can now with the video below.


I thought it was really brave of ASAP to use his own life as an example of how the rap game can go terribly wrong. I know others have done this but there is just something very genuine and personal about the video and it's lyrics. D…

Netflix Nation: Population Me (and a few others)

Image
When I decided to sign up for Netflix I was sure it would be nice. At first I used it once in a while and shortly after joining my brother asked to be added and I obliged. He pays for his half and watches way more shows than I do. But I must say it was this past Summer (August) that I went in full throttle.

My first full on binge watching was Dragons: Race to the Edge. Sure it took a week or so for me to watch all thirteen episodes but that was a big deal for me. Plus I gave it five stars and can't wait for more. DreamWorks did a fine job with creating this movie franchise and Netflix is definitely doing well by jumping on the boat with the series aspect.

P.S.: While writing this (I kid you not) the mail man arrived with four books for me. One of them was...wait for it. How to Train your Dragon (Book 1) by Cressida Cowell. I kid you not.



Also I watched the movie Sinister. That creeptastic movie left me with not only chills but a new book idea.


Then I rewatched Rise of the Guardian…

Cover Reveal: Piper Morgan Joins the Circus by Stephanie Faris

Image
I am probably one of the last to do this but who cares. Today I am sharing the cover of Piper Morgan Joins the Circus by Stephanie Faris. She has been a long time blogging buddy of mine and I also own her two previous books 30 Days of No Gossip and 25 Roses. This is a chapter book but that won't stop me because I love all kinds of books at my wonderful age of 30 with no kids. Yes a woman can be thirty with no kids and no man. Not so shocking in the 21st Century (to some) but I bet I would have been a scandal in the 1960s or more the 1940s. Plus I bought and loved The Princess in Black by Shannon Hale and that was supposed to be for kids too. But who cares? It's my book money.

To catch up with Stephanie you can check her out at:

Blog, Amazon, The Book Depository, Facebook, Twitter

Now without further ado....THE COVER!!!!

IWSG: September Insecurities

Image
Another IWSG, another chance to meet up and share our joys and fears. today I have a few insecurities of my own.

1. yesterday I started having extreme fatigue. It put me behind on both freelance work and a wrting challenge. I finally started to feel like myself again this afternoon but I have quite a bit of work to catch up on.

2. Over the last two weeks or so of August I had not been able to write much of anything. Which also put me behind.

3. I am getting ready to go through the process of registering and making my freelaancing offical. Hopefully the name of my business is available and I am getting the money together to pay for reserving the name.

4. Worry is rearing it's ugly head. Things that  am behind on are staring at me hard in the face. God help me.

So I am moving forward and hope that anyone with similar issues know that they are not alone. Just know that you should never give up. Thank you Alex and minions for this monthly shelter fromlife'sstorms. Also thankGod f…
