Welcome! I'm Riv Re, teenager and aspiring author. I post Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday. Tuesdays are for book reviews; Thursdays are for a weekly meme called "Character Dolls," which showcases character depictions I made online; and on Sundays I just wing it.
This blog is for my writing misadventures, my reviews, ramblings, and rants. My favorite genre is fantasy, so expect a lot of the unusual.

Warning: I've got an awful sense of humor. Don't blame me if you keel up and die from reading the jokes I crack.
Notice: I hold no responsibility for any deaths caused by previously mentioned jokes.

Enjoy and happy reading!

NaNo and Halloween

Hey Blogger Buds!
Yeah, yeah, yeah, I haven't been on much lately. Get out all your yelling now. I'll wait.
How 'bout now?
Still yelling?
Still not ready?
Wow, I've been gone so long you're that mad?
Tell me when you're ready
*still waiting*
Okay, you're out of breath, so I'll talk fast.

Happy Halloween! If you're in NYC, Magnolia Cupcakes has some Halloween-themed--yup, you guessed it--cup-cakes! And don't forget to see if your local bookstore has any Halloween deals!

In other, more important news, NaNoWriMo starts in a few hours! *EEP* Please to find me there and friend me! I'm so excited for NaNo, and I have a great idea that I'm dying to start on.

I know I haven't been on lately, and don't expect me on much during November, except maybe to cry a bit. But I DO have some awesome posts planned, that I've been working on!

Good luck WriMos! 4 and 1/2 hours left! Happy writing!

It Always Happens to Someone Else Until It Doesn't

I haven't been on much lately, and I don't know when I will be on next. My computer went off the deep end, officially, so I've currently only got brotherly laptops. If I won your contest, feel free to e-mail me, as I do my best to check them. But, I won't be checking my blogroll very much.

But that's the good news.

A old friend of mine recently passed away. We weren't particularly close, but I knew her for a long time. This is going to sound cliche`, but she was always smiling. Her life sucked, but she was happy.
And you know how you read books where the MC thinks she's dreaming?
Not such a far-fetched idea, as I sit here.

You might pause now, give her a moment of respect, and then go on your merry way. Because, of course, this is a story happening to someone else. Because the freak accidents, they're always someone else. They never happen to you. Until they do.
So yeah, you're going to get on with life, because I'm sitting here in NY, and you're my reader over in China, or Italy or Azerbaijin, or Denmark or Australia or Israel or Finland or the UK or even the US or Canada.
Because it always happens to someone else. And then it doesn't.

So laugh, love, and live life. You never know.
