Don't think about if people will like your book or if you're good at writing or not, just write! Get those words on paper and get that story written! I recommend participating in NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) to everyone, even those who think that they can't write, because it is fun and sometimes having that deadline can help you. People often don't finish a novel and I believe that the most important thing is just to write. You may never publish your first novel, but it will help you learn what works and what doesn't and practice helps everyone improve!(less)

It's great to have freedom to do what I want in a story. Sometimes when I read a book I feel like there are events that I wish hadn't happened and when I write my books I get to decide if those events happen or not. (less)

Book Review: The Raven Boys

 4/5 stars  The Raven Boys The Raven Boys are a group of friends who are intense and interesting each in their own way. I loved how unique each character was and how clearly I could see them.

“As he passed me, he leaned to Curran and handed him a paper fan folded from some sort of flyer.

Curran looked at the fan. “What?”
"An emergency precaution, Your Majesty. In case the lady faints.”

Curran just stared at him.

Raphael strode toward the Pit, turned, flexed a bit, and winked at me.

"Give me that,” I told Curran. “I need to fan myself.”
"No, you don’t.”
