Hey, would you like to help me out?

Alright, so I've been thinking (these words should flash like a warning sign) and I believe it's time to test my edited manuscript on some of my readers. I want to know if it's done--or if it needs to improve. So with that, I'd like to ask you; would you like to help me?

You may sign yourself up in the comments or ask questions about this "business" as well.

Really, all I'm looking for is a group of nice writers who won't hold back on me--a writing critique group. I want to share my writing and, help is grow. I need to weed out all the rough patches and then gently spray it with a power hose.

Would you like to help me do this?

If so, I very much encourage you to comment. I think I'm going to limit my number of editorial readers to five--though, I'm sure not a lot of you will be interested in doing this, which is understandable, so I may not have to worry about that.

Some Guidelines To Consider:

+ You must be thirteen years or older (unless you can persuade me you are mature enough to read my material).

+ You must have an email account by which I can contact you, so that I can share my writing with you (it would be preferable if you had gmail, so I could just share with you in google docs).

+ You must be willing to help me untangle complicated plot points, exploit character actions, and give me advice on what you think would make my story better.

I believe that's all for now. I can't wait to hear from you. :)

Note: I am now no longer accepting participants. Sorry. :}

    Ugh. I'm so sad I missed it. Oh well, I'll buy it when it gets published:)
    You should start a writers support group or something. A place where people could trade their works and get insight. I would do it myself but I don't know anyone who writes and I don't have a way to get the word out :\

So this is where I'm at.

Hi friend. How are you? I hope this post meets you well. Today I wanted to write about this little space. My corner of the Internet.

After many attempts to give it a major face lift / rebrand / vibe / mission I figured out that the girl I was in 2012 when I originally started this blog is no longer who I am.

So let's start fresh.
Hi, I'm Rosie. I am a college student and a creator of many crafts. I enjoy writing Young Adult fiction, playing piano, singing at the top of my lungs, and, above all, making other people laugh. Right now I am pursuing a degree in art therapy, which means my future job will be helping people express themselves in a safe environment with someone who loves them. I have tried to be many things on the Internet, from an American Girl doll hoarder to a make-up artist, but nothing has really clicked with me.
Not until now.
I have always been a Christian. My entire life I have identified as being a follower of Jesus Christ. But the thing about growing up in t…

Good-bye.

Have you ever had that one thing you've tried to make work but never could? This could be anything in your personal life, from piano notes to paragraphs in a blog post.

Well, I've been trying and trying and trying and trying for years now to get blogging to work for me. At one point in my life, this was my passion. I lived for your comments, your friendship, and the purity of sharing whatever was in my heart with the world. But I don't feel warmth or connection anymore. In fact, I feel rather lost. Like I'm shouting into an abyss, vying for attention and something to fill my inner void. This feeling comes more often than I care to admit, and I've pushed through all this time with the thought that it will get better. That all I have to do is keep trying and it will work out.

But it hasn't. And I'm out of ideas.

This isn't to say I won't be back. That I won't hit a creative stride in the next week and decide to share something epic with you. But f…

Angel by the Wings (Piano Cover)

Many months ago I fell in love with this song. And like anyone who has fallen in love, it's stuck with me -- to the point where I can now play it with my eyes closed.
I think I love it so much because the lyrics go like:
"You can, you can do anything, anything
You can do anything"
Over and over. In these past few months, I've needed those power phrases on repeat.



Thank you, dear music, for being the inspirational piece to get me back into taking piano lessons. Thank you for inspiring me to learn other pieces (and yet always return to you).
It scares me to share this with you because it is imperfect, our piano needs tuned, it's not visually stimulating, or even a good quality soundtrack. But I think I would be doing myself an injustice if I didn't.
Besides, everyone has to start somewhere.
Enjoy.
