JULY 2022 // in which this briefly turns into a travel blog


 Hello, hello, peoples! *tosses individually-wrapped chocolates into the air*


I don't even know when my last real post was. I'm afraid to look. XD I'm not even sure if it was an actual "real" post or a monthly recap post, since I feel like those are all I've done for at least a year. Well... guess what this is. XD


July was a blur. A great blur, for the most part, but man, I feel like this month that I'd been looking forward to for so long just whizzed by. Such is life, I suppose. It's just a shame you can't go back and revisit things when they're over. 

which I realized I just ironically said in a monthly recap post... anyway, onto it. xD



I'm going to cheat a bit and go back farther than July, since I haven't updated you guys on what I've been reading for so long AND I only read one book in July (and not even the WHOLE book).


UNBLEMISHED TRILOGY by Sara Ella // I read the first book earlier this year and finished up the trilogy in June, I believe. I'd been wanting to read these for A WHILE, after reading a review of Unbreakable on a blog years ago (I can't remember which blog it was, sadly, but I think it was one of the first ones I discovered!). This was such a fun, unique, magical adventure! 4/5 stars!


THE WONDERLAND TRIALS by Sara Ella // I received an eARC of this one, and it was so good! The funny thing is, I've seen a bunch of people say that they're not big Wonderland fans in general, but they adored this book. And that was me- while I do like Alice in Wonderland, the place itself has always freaked me out a bit. XD But I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and I recommend it even if you're not a Wonderland person- and certainly if you are!! 4/5 stars!


SHADOW OF HONOR by Ronie Kendig // Confession time: I don't think I can fully enjoy the Droseran Saga books until the whole series is out and I can reread them all, close together. XD Don't get me wrong, I do enjoy them, but man, there's just SO MUCH and my little brain can't comprehend all of it. Still, if you're a sci fi/space opera fan, you should give these books a try. Although... prepare to be traumatized. Or angry. (I mean that in the best way, of course...) 4/5 stars!

First off, I had two stories published with Havok in July! *confetti* This was super exciting for me, for several reasons. One, it's my first time ever having more than one Havok story out in a single month. Two, they were both in genres I hadn't previously been published in. And three- with these two stories, I've now been published under all FIVE Havok genres!! 


This might not sound like a huge deal, but it's something I've been hoping to accomplish for a whiiile now. And though the number of authors who have reached this milestone has grown to more than just a small handful now, I'm so honored to be a part of it! (Last I checked, I believe there were about 15 who have done it?)


If you're a Havok member and didn't get to read my stories last month, here they are! 

An Enhancing Elixir Experience

The Courageous Lyons


And if you're not a Havok member... go ahead and become one. It's only $5 and you can access all the stories year-round. ;)


Elsewhere on the writing front- I've been working on Look for the Flares! No surprise there, I know, since it's been my main WIP for the past almost-year. I'm slowly working my way through some suuuper rough rewrites, working out some story problems and getting things in place to go back and polish over later. It's a bit daunting and I don't know how long it'll take, but I'm excited. With every little piece that comes together, I get more excited. (have I ever mentioned how much I love this story?) The other day I sat down with this WIP and very low expectations, and ended up having an idea that might fix one of the problems I had, and wrote a great scene that I think will make way for other great scenes... yeah, things are moving. And it's fantastic.



The big happening in July was none other than Realm Makers! It was my second time attending, and though in ways it was vastly different from last year, it was just as amazing. I won't talk much about that, because I do hope to get a full Realm Makers recap up soon. But it was a wonderful time, and I can't wait to do it again. ♥

Because of Realm Makers being across the country from me this time, I got to do some traveling for the first time in a while! Like last year, it was my brother and one of my sisters making the trip with me, and we had planned to see and do some things in different states, since we were so close. Not everything worked out the way we'd hoped (apparently in New York City, to "reserve a parking spot" means something different than it does in Missouri #itsalongstory), but it was still a great trip, and I got to see so many new places. 

To start with, we visited the Arch in St. Louis on the first morning of our trip. Not a huge deal on the surface, because we don't live super far and have seen the Arch in passing many times. BUT my brother and I decided to get out and actually go SEE it, which we've certainly never done, and we walked right up to the base and touched it. It was strangely surreal, standing right underneath this monument I've lived 70 miles from my whole life but never actually visited.


But the main highlight of the trip was, for sure, New York City. With it being only a couple of hours away from where Realm Makers was, we just had to swing up and see it. Though our visit wasn't quite what we'd planned, it was still fantastic and I'm glad we did it. (though if you ever plan to walk through Central Park, make sure you're not carrying a bunch of stuff with you AND it's not like 90 degrees. XD) I would also not recommend driving around New York City if you're not experienced at such a thing... we got very, very lost somewhere in Manhattan and ended up in Brooklyn. I'm just a kid from- Then we got unlost from there and ended up on Staten Island somehow?? Yeah, it was interesting. xD Prepare yourself for an NYC photo dump.


NYC skyline- this was an absolutely insane experience. We didn't know what it was at first, but we knew we were getting closer to NYC, and then I started realizing I recognized some of the building silhouettes up ahead. I pointed out the World Trade Center, and the Empire State Building, and it was just absolutely crazy to realize we were looking at the New York City skyline.


Just a couple Grants at (Ulysses S.) Grant's tomb. ;)


One World Trade Center


Bethesda Fountain in Central Park- this is the fountain from the end of the That's How You Know number in Enchanted!!




Bethesda Terrace - and THIS is where the Avengers stood in the ending scene of The Avengers! FANGIRLING. We sadly were running short on time and didn't get to go up to the top, but we walked right under it. 

Yup, that's the spot!


Statue of Balto!


The Statue of Liberty! Trust me, it's there. You just have to look really close. xD We were escaping the city after being lost for way too long and just happened to get a good look at the statue on our way by. I looked at her right as a perfect bolt of lightning struck behind her and it was epic.


The Brooklyn Bridge- aka, the one Spider-man left a love note on for Gwen Stacy. :')





Before leaving Atlantic City after Realm Makers, I wanted to go down and see the ocean and the boardwalk. I only had a minute to take some pictures and enjoy the view, but it was lovely. Now next time I play Monopoly with my family, I expect to get Boardwalk, because I'm the only one who's officially walked on it. XD


I had this idea months ago- Wild Hearts Can't Be Broken, one of my favorte horse-y movies, takes place partly in Atlantic City, so I wanted to take a picture of the movie there. My original plan was to do it in front of the Steel Pier, where Sonora Webster actually did her horse diving in real life, but we didn't go down that far, so here's a nice picture of it in front of a random spot in Atlantic City with a tiiiny bit of the boardwalk in the background. XD


On the trip home, we drove through Philadelphia and saw Independence Hall (though it didn't work out to tour it and see the Liberty Bell like we'd hoped), and funny story: we spotted C.J. and Clint Redwine walking down the street as we passed by. XD #realmiesighting


Later we drove through Washington D.C. and saw the Washington Memorial (which was disappointingly Spider-man-less), the White House, the Capitol Building, and the Supreme Court- basically everything but the Lincoln Memorial, which we think we drove past the back of but were too distracted with being lost and stressed out to notice. XD Yeah... we got really lost in D.C. Like, we left the place and ended up back in about three, four times I believe? And it was getting dark and we weren't as far as we'd planned on being that day, and we still had to find a motel for the night... So that was a fun time. But eventually we got out, and got to see the Pentagon and Arlington National Cemetery in passing! (I'll spare you the photos since I already shared so many from New York, but you're not missing much because after you take so many photos of something, you realize it looks exactly the same as it does in any photo on Google. xD)


Our plan had been to stay in Pennsylvania that night, but timing said no, so we ended up in a motel in Maryland instead. xD The next day was just a loooong day of driving, though we did take a little detour to swing by the Flight 93 Memorial in Pennsylvania. We got home super late that night, very happy to be back in our own beds. It was an absolutely whirlwind of a trip, but I'm so glad we got to do everything we did.


The last thing I did in July was arguably the best thing I've done all year. Little backstory: as a teenager, I became an avid fangirl of the Big Time Rush TV show on Nickelodeon and in turn, of course, the real-life band behind it. My best friend and I talked about them all the time, and man, how we wished we could go to one of their concerts. I was jealous of each and every fan who got to do so, and when the band separated after the show ended, I was so sad. For years, I would Google them from time to time just to see if they were getting back together. XD


Fast forward to July 2021, and Big Time Rush announced they were getting back together. Fast forward again to February 2022, and they announced a summer tour. THAT was the moment I'd been waiting for, because I'd promised myself for years that if they ever went on tour again, I would go, no matter what. 


Well, Sunday, July 31, my teenage dreams came true. :') I had amazing seats, closer than I'd ever dreamed I'd be able to be. From the moment the banner dropped and the show started, to when I walked out of the venue, I sang my heart out and had the time of my life. I was so much closer than my pictures make it look and got to see all four members right in front of me so clearly so many times throughout the night. Also got nailed in the head by a giant beach ball. xD It was a literally amazing night and I missed it the moment it was over. (Plus my favorite member walked approximately four feet away from me during the concert so that was fun, even if he DIDN'T reach out and touch my hand rude)


So, yeah, it'd be pretty darn hard to beat that experience. And I've been sad ever since it ended, because I literally counted down the days for so long and then it was over in two hours and I already want to see them again. :')

None of my pictures turned out that great but LOOK AT THEM :')

There was confetti and I collected some and am keeping it forever and ever

(by the way: if you only know Big Time Rush as that boy band from the dorky Nick show... don't sell them short. listen to them. they're fantastic. and if you need song recommendations I will gladly help you out)



All in all: July was a great month. Now I'm ready to get summer over with and charge full-speed into fall. xD Seriously, though- can you believe fall starts so soon?? Sooner for me, even, because I'm one of those people who starts celebrating fall on September 1st... though the past couple of years the fall mood has been hitting earlier and earlier. xD


I'm hoping to get my Realm Makers recap up in the next week or two, so stay tuned for that! Until next time, have a happy August!



So friends, how was your July? Anyone else eagerly awaiting the first hints of fall?? And what's your favorite book you've read recently?

LOOK FOR THE FLARES // a post-Camp NaNo update


YOU GUYS. 


I have very exciting news. 


I FINISHED THE FIRST DRAFT OF LOOK FOR THE FLARES.


*excessive squealing and happy air-punching*


As you might remember, Look for the Flares was my 2021 NaNoWriMo novel. I wrote 50k and then took a break, intending to return to it and finish it soon. Long story short, I barely touched it until April. XD


So, when Camp NaNo rolled around, I knew I REALLY wanted to finish this book. For one, I wanted to get it done by Realm Makers. Not that I'm pitching it or anything, but I do have a critique appointment I'll be taking the first ten pages to, and I just really wanted to have the whole thing done by then. Also- and I'm not proud of this- my motivation levels absolutely TANK after NaNo events. So, I knew that if I didn't finish it in April, I'd likely struggle to keep my momentum and get the rest of it written.


Also... I just REALLY wanted to see this book done. Like... REALLY. 


I set my word count goal for this April's Camp to 35k, but really the goal was just to finish my book. I think it was around 55/60k at the beginning of the month, and I usually finish my drafts at around 90k, so I just made a rough guess on the word count and figured I could adjust it later if I needed to. (spoiler alert: if I remembered correctly where I started, my word count for the month actually turned to be almost exactly 35k.)


Anyway... days and then weeks passed in April and I barely wrote anything. I became focused on writing short stories and neglected my novel. (this is a serious problem, y'all... I love writing flash fic and having things to submit places, but my novels are my first loves and I hate accidentally abandoning them.) BUT... if you've been around here at all during any NaNo month, you've learned that the way Emily rolls during NaNo is to procrastinate for the first two-thirds to three-fourths of the month, and then go into hyperdrive and write like a mad woman so I can meet my goal.


Is it healthy? Probably not. It works, though. XD


So, yeah, that's what happened this time around, too. Like I said, I barely touched this book the whole month. Then in the last third of the month I realized, oh hey, if I'm going to finish this book this month like I wanted to I need to actually write. 


So, I went into that hyperdrive mode. I lost track of my daily word counts and didn't care anymore because I just wanted to finish the book. I ate lots of dark chocolate. I did lots of word sprints. I drank a surprisingly small amount of coffee. (suspicious...)


Thursday, April 28, was a day spent mostly writing. I knew that it would be the last day of the month I'd be able to make a lot of progress, so I just went all in and wrote, wrote, wrote. In that one day, I:


- Made myself cry for the first time with my writing. (It was a fantastic moment. I was writing a scene that I'd been looking forward to writing for ages (and actually had already written a rough version of it just to get it off my mind), and listening to an amazing, emotional song that has become the theme song of this book... and before I knew it I was tearing up at my kitchen table, silent-sobbing at my characters' situation. was it happy? was it sad? wouldn't you like to know...)


- Broke my record for the amount of words written in one day. (I wrote 11947 words that day, taking the crown from 2020 Covid-bound me. xD)


- Surpassed my highest word count for any of my WIPs. (Look for the Flares is currently at 96931 words, making it the longest thing I've written!)


- And finished my first draft!!


Honestly, I feel different this time around than I have after finishing other drafts. Of course, no matter what story I'm working on, I always miss the characters when I'm done, and long to jump back into the world. But there's something different about this one. Maybe it's the more emotional nature of this book. Maybe, deep down, this is my favorite child. But I feel much like I do after coming through a rewatch of Lord of the Rings, or reading a book that wrecked me. It's always on my mind, and when I dwell on it too much, I think, oh my goodness, I miss it and I love it and I want to live in it and I need to get back in and experience it as soon as possible. 


Which brings me to my plans for this book, now that the first draft is done. It's now been a week since I finished it, and it's taken a significant amount of willpower not to just jump right back in and start on rewrites. But I knew I needed to step away for a bit, let my mind AND the book rest. 


The weird thing is, I don't think I've ever really gone right into round two of a WIP after finishing the first draft. In the past, I've let the book sit for months, worked on other things, and then come back to it later (usually when it was time for another Camp NaNo XD). But this time... I just feel so ready to move forward. My writer soul is so on fire for this book right now and I don't want to lose it. I can't explain to you guys how much I love this story and want to share it with the world. I simply can't wait to go back through and start answering questions, fixing plot holes, doing some much-needed worldbuilding, adding layers, and just deepening this thing and making it better. Because let me tell you, there is a BIG mess waiting for me. And I'm so excited to attack it. 


So, chances are my break from this book is pretty much over and you'll find me obsessing over it again shortly. Possibly today. XD If you would, say a prayer for me and this project, that the story and its purpose will come to life and God will meet me in the process. ♥


And that's the update! I sadly don't have any snippets for you today, because you do NOT want to experience any of this first-draft writing of mine from this past month. XD But you can bet I'll be sharing snippets and updates as I go back through this book, so get ready for that!


Thank you guys so much for sticking with me and encouraging me through this writing journey!! It means so much. Now, I want to know- how long do YOU wait after you finish a first draft before starting rewrites/whatever your second-draft process looks like?

THE MARCH MUCHNESS TAG // wherein I mostly ramble


Well, here we are- the last day of March Muchness and I'm just now answering the questions for the Wonderland tag. #oops 

This month has felt like it lasted about two seconds. One second I was ready for it to come in, and now I'm sitting here blinking because I think it came in the wrong door and took a quick exit. And somehow over thirty-one days, I failed to do this post until the very. last. one. XD But it's fine. (*suddenly wonders if I should have waited until tomorrow and opened with "I'm late! I'm late! For a very important date!")

Anyway, that's enough rambling. Read on for my answers to the March Muchness tag!


List six impossible things you’d love to do – wild and crazy answers 100% welcome!

- Find a time machine and go back in time to visit some of my favorite moments

- Find a sugar-free version of every ice cream and coffee flavor

- Write a book perfectly the first time 

- Visit Narnia

- Fly

- Conquer my TBR

I think these are all very sensible desires and I don't understand why they're not attainable. 

 What is a topic that grew curiouser and curiouser the more you studied/researched it?

I'm going to go broad here and say history. I've never been a huge history fan (unless we're talking American Girl books here), but over the past years- probably thanks to books and movies, let's be honest- I've become more and more intrigued by different time periods. And though I haven't done much research into them (outside of reading historical fiction XD), it's something I'd love to go deeper into eventually!

 If you could invite three fictional characters to a tea party, who would they be?

THIS IS SO HARD. But I'll grab a few that I think would be fun...

- Mr. Tumnus. I mean, why WOULDN'T I want him there? He could bring sardines and toast (never had it but if Lucy liked it it must be good), and after tea he could play a tune for us. It would be a grand time. 

- Princess Anna. I don't know why she popped into my head, but I just feel like she would be SO fun to have a tea party. And she could bring sandwiches.

- Steve Rogers. As my date.

Which Wonderland character do you feel you’re the most like?

I mean, I've got to say Alice. Because I, too, wander around aimlessly not knowing what's going on. xD

- If you could drink a magic potion that changed one thing about you, what would it be?

Um... motivation levels?? Like, seriously, give me a potion that turned all my procrastination into motivation and I'll be forever indebted to you. xD

How IS a raven like a writing desk?

The only thing that comes to my mind as an answer to this question is Edgar Allan Poe. Take that however you will. xD

If you were to make an enemy of Father Time, what time in the day would you choose to repeat?

I'm trying to come up with an answer to this question that doesn't involve more time in bed, and I'm failing. xD But seriously, those moments either just after you wake when you still have some time before you have to get up (aka, the hour in which I'm repeately hitting snooze), or the ones just before you fall asleep? When you're so comfortable and cozy? I'd love to repeat those. xD

If you fell down a rabbit hole, what would the land you pop into look like?

Hopefully Narnia, because honestly I'm not sure you could pay me to go to Wonderland. xD It's interesting but I'd be seriously creeped out if I went there. Maybe my rabbit hole will lead to the Freedom Fighters' headquarters from Sonic the Hedgehog. *shrug*

If you could have the body of one type of creature and the head of another (for example, the Mock Turtle has the body of a turtle and the head of a calf), what would that combination be and why?

I'm pretty sure I'd want the body of some kind of bird, maybe an eagle, because I desperately want to fly. As for the head? Uhh... I have no idea. Anything I imagine slapped on the body of an eagle just sounds ridiculously creepy and I don't like it. xD So, I'll cheat here and say another bird. How about the body of an eagle with the head of an owl? Then not only will I be super cool-looking, but I can watch my six and fly at the same time.

Have you read or written anything stylistically close to Alice in Wonderland? Tell us about it.

My mind is going blank and I can't come up with anything. I feel like at some point in my childhood I probably wrote something as random and wacky as Alice in Wonderland, though. xD

If you could either be as tall as a tree or as small as a mouse for an hour, which would you choose and what would you do?

I'd definitely want to be as small as a mouse. As a kid I probably would have chosen to hang out in my dollhouses, but those are in storage now so that's no good. Honestly, I'd probably just find a super cozy blanket and take a nap in it. xD

If you could give your younger or future self one piece of Very Good Advice, what would it be?

I think I would just encourage my younger self to breathe and grab the moments. I feel like this is something most of us don't learn to do until we're older, and then we have all these years behind us that we wish we would have appreciated more. There are definitely some times in the past I could have soaked in a little better. So, I would tell little Emily to look around, stop wishing for later, and just breathe in now.


And that's a wrap on March Muchness! I had so much fun putting this tag together with some blogger friends and answering the questions. Click HERE for the post where I linked to everyone else's blogs, because I really don't feel like doing that again. XD And here are those questions just in case you'd like to do the tag fashionably late: 

- List six impossible things you’d love to do – wild and crazy answers 100% welcome!

 - What is a topic that grew curiouser and curiouser the more you studied/researched it?

 - If you could invite three fictional characters to a tea party, who would they be?

- Which Wonderland character do you feel you’re the most like?

- If you could drink a magic potion that changed one thing about you, what would it be?

- How IS a raven like a writing desk?

- If you were to make an enemy of Father Time, what time in the day would you choose to repeat?

- If you fell down a rabbit hole, what would the land you pop into look like?

- If you could have the body of one type of creature and the head of another (for example, the Mock Turtle has the body of a turtle and the head of a calf), what would that combination be and why?

- Have you read or written anything stylistically close to Alice in Wonderland? Tell us about it.

- If you could either be as tall as a tree or as small as a mouse for an hour, which would you choose and what would you do?

- If you could give your younger or future self one piece of Very Good Advice, what would it be?

Go forth and answer! I hope you guys have had a lovely March/beginning of spring. I'm currently wearing a sweater and wondering why spring is always so confused. xD If you can point me to a geographical location where the seasons actually stay in their lines and give us the weather we're expecting, let me know so I can pack my bags and move there ASAP.
