I have been working on writing a book, but I’ve barely done anything with it. I can see what’s going to happen in my mind, but I just can’t write it. Does that sound weird? It’s just that, the way I write is I can’t just start writing and everything flows well. I have to be inspired. But that totally goes against a quote I wanna work by which says, “Serious writers write, inspired or not. Over time they discover that routine is a better friend than inspiration.” ~ Ralph Keyes. I have been able to just start writing when I’m uninspired a couple of times, but most of the time, it doesn’t work out. The weird thing for me right now is that I feel inspired to write, but I’m somehow finding it hard to start. I don’t know why, though. I honestly don’t know how long it’s been since I worked on my book. It’s been over a month for sure. Probably going on 2 months!
So I’m wondering…. What do you do when you just can’t seem to write? Do you force yourself into working on your story? Or do you just keep waiting until you feel ready? I really miss writing and I’d love to start having my writing days again, but I’m just so confused and don’t know what to do….
Any advice or inspiration would be really appreciated!
So, the other day, while I was in my room taking pictures for my other blog, I heard my brother come home from work, but didn’t go out to say “Hi!” since I was in the middle of something. So he called out “Hey Pack!” (that’s my nickname LOL!) “What?” I yelled back. “Come here!” “Why?” “Because! Don’t you wanna say hi to your brother?” So I stopped what I was doing and walked into the kitchen and saw my brother standing there with the LEGO Jurassic World video game!!! I like screamed and just gave him a HUGE hug!! I was laughing, super excited, and felt like I was going to cry!!
Just to be clear, this game is not mine. So now you might be thinking, “Why are you so excited then?” And here’s the answer to that – Me and Jordan always used to play the LEGO video games together. It’s always been one of my favorite things to do with him. But when we got the LEGO Marvel game, it froze a lot and we would lose all of our progress and would have to do things all over again (which took forever!). Eventually, Jordan was just done with it and we never ended up finishing the game 100%. I didn’t think he would ever want to play any of the new LEGO games again and he didn’t really seem interested anymore (especially in The Hobbit one). So to see that he had bought LEGO Jurassic World for us to play together really touched me. Especially since I know that he’ll be leaving soon (since he’ll be getting married) and we probably won’t play these games anymore. But for the time being, I’m gonna enjoy playing this game with him and sharing those good times together. Making memories that will last a lifetime
So we played the game the other night and oh my gosh it’s AMAZING!!!! We did the whole first movie in one night!! It was AWESOME!! I love all the characters, the actual dialogue from the movies, and just the silly things they add in! LEGO games are so stinkin’ fun! 😀
Is there a special thing you enjoy doing with your sibling(s)? Do you like the LEGO video games?
Hello! I thought it would be fun and interesting to start talking about movies that I see. Please do not read if you haven’t seen the new live action Cinderella movie and don’t want any spoilers, as I will be mentioning some major ones
I am really happy that Disney kept the Cinderella movie true to the original. Although there were some minor things added, such as Cinderella’s mother and father being alive at the beginning, her father was a merchant, Cinderella first meets the prince in the woods, and just simple things such as that, but really, I loved it all! There was one change, however that I didn’t like and that is that they made Jaq be a girl, changing the name to Jacqueline. And they didn’t have Bruno in it either, which was a little disappointing, but it didn’t bother me too much.
My Favorite Scene:
Oh, my goodness there are so many! I love when Cinderella and Kit first meet in the woods!!! It’s just so awesome and sweet! And oh, their dance at the ball is just beautiful! And, AAAAAH! THE ENDING!!! When Kit is disguised as a guard and he hears Cinderella singing and insists that she be brought out – EEE! And when Cinderella comes down and is telling Kit everything she doesn’t have and then says, “Will you take me as I am? An honest country girl who loves you.” And then Kit replies, “Yes, but only if you take me as I am – an apprentice who is still learning his trade.” OMGOSH I DIED!!! 😀 So, yeah, all of my favorite parts include Cinderella and Kit together. I totally ship them LOL! My mom gave them the couple name, “Kitella” Love it! Oh! I also love when Kit curls up on top of his dad when he’s dying!! It’s so sweet and touching and heartbreaking!
At first when I saw the actress who would be playing Cinderella I thought she would do okay, and I thought the same for the prince. But, oh my gosh, they were PERFECT! I can’t imagine anyone else playing them! Lilly James and Richard Madden did an amazing job! And the stepsisters were great, too! Just as weird and ridiculous as they are in the animated film. The stepmother also did fantastic! When I first saw a trailer with her in it, I thought the acting was kinda cheesy, but again, I was so wrong! Cate Blanchett does a great job at acting as the stepmother- a character that you just hate because she is so cruel.
This movie was very emotional, although I didn’t shed a single tear, I did get teary. It’s shocking for me that I didn’t cry, but I realize that my emotions came out through my body. I can’t describe how I felt exactly, but it felt like my body just died (although it didn’t really LOL) and I couldn’t move. I was just too sad to cry I guess, or maybe my mood wasn’t cry-ish. Who knows? Her parent’s deaths killed me, Cinderella’s pain of being a servant killed me, her happiness with the prince made me smile, the wedding day made me smile even bigger. And when the movie ended, I just wanted to watch it all over again! I can not wait until this movie comes out on DVD! Literally, I feel like it’s taking a year for it to come out!!! *insert crying face*
I absolutely rate this movie 5 out of 5 stars! I couldn’t be more pleased with this movie!
I hope you enjoyed hearing my thoughts! Let me know if you’d like to see more of these in the future!
Hello everyone! A while back, my friend suggested that I keep a writing journal that you carry with you everywhere to write down story ideas, names that you can use for your characters, plan out stories, etc. At first I thought “I don’t know if I’ll do that. I use my iPod for all of my notes.”, but I did not know what I was missing out on!
My brother got me this journal for one of my birthdays, and I’ve always loved it, but I just didn’t know what to write down in there. So I decided that I could use this as my writing journal. I hadn’t really used it much, but last week when we went to Hobby Lobby, I felt so inspired by the flowers there, that I took out my journal and wrote a small scene. I can’t tell you how much fun it was! I thought I would feel weird walking around writing in a journal, but I didn’t feel weird at all. It was AWESOME!
So that is when I got hooked. Every time we went in a store where there were journals I HAD to peek at them! There are seriously so many awesome journals out there, I could have a whole bookshelf just filled with blank journals! I love them! 😀
Yesterday, we went to WalMart and I got the adorable journal pictured above! I adore polka dots and I loved how it said “Write” on the cover!
And of course if you’ve got a cute journal, you just gotta have an adorable pen! I’ve had this awesome donut pen for a few years (actually it was a backup. The first one died so I’ve been using this one for a couple weeks now.) that I got from Target. I’m in love with donuts, so writing in a perfect journal with a donut pen is just awesomely fun! 😀
Here’s a peek inside my jumbo journal! Oh, I guess I forgot to mention that it was jumbo, huh? LOL! I love the inside because there are different color pages and each page has a little date box in the corner
Here are my two writing journals side by side. My jumbo journal I will use at home, and the small one I’ll use on the go
I just have to say that if you love to write and hope to be an author someday as I do, I highly recommend having a writing journal! I’m loving mine and they are such a huge help with planning out stories and what your characters will be like.
I know I have already said a few things you could put in your writing journal, but here’s a list with a few more ideas:
– Plan a story
– List your characters and describe their personalities
– Write down first names and last names you could use for characters
– Write down any quotes, lyrics, etc. that inspire you
– Things that you need to work on improving in your writing
– New words you learn that you’d like to use in your stories
– And so much more!
If you start a writing journal, please let me know in the comments section down below!
Do you enjoy writing?
Wow, it has been like a decade since I’ve posted (yes, I exaggerate LOL!)! I am so, SO sorry about not posting on here in such a long time! I guess it’s just kinda hard for me to run two blogs… 😕
I’ve been thinking a lot about this blog lately and what I could do to get myself more motivated to post on here and keep it interesting and fun for anyone and everyone. So I’ve come to a decision…
I will be posting about our new puppy as well as writing. I love to write, so I will post when I am working on a new story, hit a dead end in a story, when I need inspiration, inspiration for you, etc.
Don’t worry! That’s not ALL I’ll post about! I’ll still post about cute, chubby, fluffy, and all obsession worthy things. I actually have so much to share with you, so hopefully I can get around to doing so soon!
If you still check this blog and read this post, thank you so much! I am going to try my best to get back into the swing of posting on here
Please comment if you read this post, so I know you’re there!

Here’s Jaq! All of the mice are just adorable! Well, I didn’t like the pink one (I think her name is Mary, but lately I’ve been really confused with their names, so forgive me if I’m wrong LOL!)
Here’s Gus Gus! I love him!!! 😀

Hey everybody! Here’s a chubby little story for you all that includes the lovely Anna and adorable Tsum Tsums!
Anna grunted as she climbed up the giant computer chair. She hadn’t been around for very long and she wanted to explore her surroundings.
As Anna was about to climb up the computer desk she paused and gasped. “Awww! You’re all so cute!” She exclaimed.
“What are you guys?” She wondered aloud.
“Oh, right, um, hi! My name is Anna.” She introduced herself to the adorable little things.
To Anna’s surprise, one of them jumped down to greet her!
“Okay, you are so cute!” Anna said as she stroked his fur.
“You like it when I scratch behind your ears, huh? You’re just the sweetest thing!” Anna said with a big smile.
Bruno jumped into Anna’s arms and she gave him a cuddle.
Bruno’s sweet eyes would make anyone fall in love with him!
Bruno squirmed out of her arms and seemed to be talking to the other Tsums.
Before Anna knew it, she was sitting down on the desk, completely surrounded by all the Tsums. They were crawling all over her, trying to say hello. Anna loved them all so much!
Although Anna loved all of the Tsums very much, her dearest friend of them all was Bruno
Merry (late) Christmas, everybody!! I got some really cute things for Christmas and I’d like to show all of you! 😀
I got tsum Tsum Tsums (haha, get it? 😛 )!!!
I got the three peas, Lotso, and Daisy Duck from my friend, Emma! I love them so much!! Daisy’s chubbiness is to die for! 😛
And I got Snow White and Grumpy in my stocking!! I just LOVE Grumpy’s beard!! 😀
And here are all of my Tsum Tsums together! Aren’t they just the cutest??
Last, but certainly not least, I got this awesome Elsa Tumbler!! And it has my name on it! It’s so beautiful!! I’m sure I’ll be using this a lot! 😀
What did you get for Christmas?
I just realized that I haven’t showed you any of my Vinylmations yet, and since I just got an adorably chubby (this form of chubby means something cute 😉 ) one yesterday, I knew that now was the time to introduce you to them!
This is Baymax and he is from the Big Hero 6 Vinylmation Series. Isn’t he just the cutest little thing?! 😀
All Vinylmations are made in a Mickey Mouse mold, but painted to look like different characters. Vinylmations come in three different sizes, 9″, 3″, and Jr’s which are 1 1/2″. The Jr’s normally come on a keychain, but there are also ones that don’t. The most common size are the 3″
Vinylmations are really exciting! They come in a box and wrapped in a foil wrapper, so when you open it, you don’t know which one from the series you’re going to get! Sometimes it can be a let down, but sometimes you get to open the one you want! There are also some Limited Edition sets that come in a box, but you know who you’re getting, like there were LE sets for Anna & Elsa, The Stabbington Brothers, Belle & The Beast Christmas, etc.
Vinylmations really vary in price. Sometimes they are $12.95 and sometimes they are $14.95- you just never know! Also, some series have a variant and each series has a mystery chaser. If you get a Vinylmation that isn’t pictured on the side of your box and doesn’t look anything like any of the other Vinyls in the set, that’s a chaser! If you get one that’s not on the side of the box, but it looks a little like one of the other vinyls, that’s a variant! Chasers and Variants are worth a lot of money- you could sell them online, anywhere from $50-$200! Yes, people pay that much for these little guys! There are even some LE Vinylmations that have sold for over $1000! Isn’t that insane?!
Me, my mom, and my sister, all love to collect Vinylmations together, and we always get so excited for a new series that’s coming out! My sister has a YouTube channel where she posts videos of us opening Vinyls, showing our collections, and so much more! If you’d like to check out a few of her videos, click here
I hope you enjoyed getting to know a little more about Vinylmations! You can buy them at Disneyland, Disney World, Disney Stores, and online at disneystore.com!
Let me know if you have any Vinlymations, or if you decide to buy one! I’d love to know! 😀
Have a great day!
