Videos that Distracted Me From Writing Because I Claimed They Were Research:

Russian dancing:..

Der Fuehrer's Face...

....I get easily distracted.


Working like a crazy person on my WIP called RESIST.

Drinking a big cup of joe out of my San Francisco mug, rocking ripped leggings and wrist warmers from the 80's, and involved in conspiratorial acts against the Nazis with the Gestapo on my trail. The life of a writer is varied and random.

I thought I should document my "Yay!! I made it to 40,000 words and I still have soooo much to write!" face. And apparently I drank too much coffee today. But don't I always?

Finally Figured Out:

How to do that little dot, dot thingy above German words. AWW YEAH.

  1. Lovely review. How was Anon Sir Anon? I've been thinking about reading that.

    You sure have been busy with reading and writing! I am currently working on my historical fiction about a young girl surviving black plague ridden England in the middle ages and am super excited to start reading I Am The Messenger by Markus Zusak. (His other book, The Book Thief, is one of my all time favorites. So I have high expectations).

    1. Thanks, Susanna! Anon, Sir, Anon was very, very good!! I'm a big fan of Rachel Heffington's writing. =)

      That's awesome that you're working on your historical fiction!! I really need to read The Book Thief. It's on my to-read list. Too many great books to read, not enough time! =) You'll have to let me know how I Am The Messenger is!

  2. I loved this update, Emily! So fun to see what you've been up to. And can I just say..."RESIST" is such a great title. Golly.

    1. Awww thanks, Hannah!! I'm glad you like the title! I'm pretty fond of it myself. =)

  3. Oooh, I'm going to have to check your goodreads! I love historical fiction, so I have a feeling I am going to like the books you've read!
    That is so awesome that you write!!! I wish I could write fiction. I definitely appreciate it/admire those who can do it, but was never able to sit down and write it.

    1. Thanks, Elle Alice!! I'm always excited to find historical fiction fans! =)
