nanowrimo_2016_webbadge_winnerHey everyone! How is everyone today? November is almost over and I completed NaNoWriMo. I’m feeling proud of myself. It was stressful, but a good experience. It was definitely good practice for future deadlines. Now, I just have to figure out how to put editing into that. Shouldn’t be too hard…I hope. I’m one of those who edit as they go along. Maybe I could save editing for one day a week. That way I can focus on writing. Any writers out there have any great tips for that?

I’m looking at going back to my story, maybe in a couple months? I need to focus on the sequel for Forbidden Love first.

Nothing else to talk about. December is a day away. I’ll soon be thirty-seven. Hoping thirty-seven will be my year.

Ooh, I’m going to be working on a Christmas story that I hope to post on Saturdays. The conclusion will be on Christmas Eve.

Did you participate in NaNoWriMo? How did it go? Looking forward to 2017?

Until next time.

Facebook Withdrawal..Not Me….Yet

So it’s been a few days and I’m feeling pretty good. Why you ask? Well, there is a couple reasons, but that’s a whole different post. That, of which I dare not post. One thing I am proud of right now, is not going on Facebook for long periods of time. Facebook is a struggle for me. I get suckered in no matter what.

On Monday, I started my less time of Facebook. I thought I would try. I pretty much stop doing  Twitter a lot. Why not Facebook? I still of course go on Twitter here and there, but not enough to where it takes up too much of my time. I decided I would give myself ten minutes of Facebook and that would be all. I did it. No problem. Although I had to go on a few times when Facebook notified me of notifications. So, I decided I would remove Facebook from my phone. That way I have no way of knowing if someone posted or commented.

Yesterday, wasn’t bad. I hardly went on. Maybe went on three times to see if there were notifications, but there wasn’t that many. It took me a few minutes to check and I was off.

Today, same thing. I maybe went on five times already? But, that was because I commented on a post on a Facebook group I manage. I was even able to ignore my timeline. So bonus for me there. I will probably go on again later tonight, but I’ll go on for ten minutes. Fifteen the most, I hope.

If you are ever on Facebook and want to like my page. Same with Twitter. Click the links below. Let’s hope I can do this. Fingers crossed.

Hello

So this is it. I’m starting over. I use to be at Blogger, but I thought I would try something new. This is just a short post to say hi. So hi! Where do I start? My name is Robyn and I’m a thirty-something year old woman trying to figure out life. It’s not easy. What would you like to know about me? Let’s see. I grew up in northeast Ohio almost my whole life. I did live in Illinois for six months when I was a baby. My family moved to Pennsylvania and we lived there until 1987. We came to Ohio when I was in the first grade. When it came to college I stayed in Ohio. For a couple years, I attended Kent State University. Only to go to University of Akron for a couple years after that. I graduated from Akron in winter of 2002 and will have always a place in my heart for Akron. Don’t get me wrong, Kent State was great. But, as you get to know me. I’m sure you’ll discover why I preferred Akron over Kent.

If there is one thing you will definitely discover about me is I love to write. I might not be the best writer out there, but I love to see what adventures my writing will take me on. I’ve always wanted to write. I still remember in six grade, a classmate wrote my prediction and said I would become an author. The years went by and I did put my writing aside. In my twenties, I realized I missed writing. I missed the pen and paper.

There have been some up and downs, but now as I approach my late thirties. There I said it. I’m still thirty-six, but by the end of the year I’ll be closer to my late thirties. It’s always been a hard thing for me to admit. Until December, I will do all in my power to say I’m in my mid-thirties. Anyways, I have discovered I now know what I want to do. I know where I want to be in my life.

If it goes the way I hope it does? Forties will be my decade. The twenties were fun. Many things, events, and people I will never forget. Thirties, I will admit. Have not been easy. It’s been a struggle as I find myself. Is it weird that I’m still finding myself? I hope you can join me in this journey as I discover on who I am and where I belong.

In this blog, I hope to entertain you with my life stories, book reviews, movie reviews. You name it. Not only do I hope you can get to know me, but I would love to get to know you. Always feel free to comment. There will be topics I’m sure I would love to talk about, but I find thanks to Facebook. I avoid those topics. Facebook can be a great site. You have your friends and family. But, you always get to know who your friends truly are. That can be a good thing and a bad thing.

I don’t want shy around topics, but at the same time as you get to know me. You might discover one of my weaknesses. I hate confrontation. I try to see the good in people. Try to look at the positive things in life. I hate when I get depressed or angry. You could ask those who are close to me. I can’t get angry. I would cry first before I got angry.

Well, that’s enough about me for now. I don’t have a set schedule yet of when I will post. It might just be a when I feel like posting. If anything, I promise to post at least three times a week. Even if it’s just a random post.

Later!
