Friday Favorites is Inspirational

November 8th favorite is: Inspiring Characters Matilda, (Roald Dahl) Matilda inspires me to believe that my habit of disappearing into my room for hours at a time to read and emerging only after my family has forgotten I exist is a worthy, nay, even noble life decision. Fitzwilliam Darcy, (Jane Austen) As a fellow socially awkward introvert, Mr. Darcy is honestly my #partygoals. We can triumph over large groups, we can survive a village assembly with resting bitch face intact, and we…

Author Toolbox: Creating Wonderful Characters

This is an author toolbox hop post. Author toolbox is the creation of author Raimey Gallant  ,a box with an emphasis on sharing tips, tricks, and advice with other authors as we all try to navigate together.

October 4: Favorite Characters that Other People Hate This may be the trickiest prompt I’ve ever done? Kibby excels at coming up with the brain-teasing, controversial Friday Favorites. (See: that one time she wanted to throw the match and watch it burn) Obviously this will be a super subjective list and your mileage may vary, standard cautions, etc & etc. Except for Dolores Umbridge, who we can all agree is virulent toad slime wrapped in sickly pink cardigans, there isn’t really a…
