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 Results

Well, I failed.
But I was doomed from the beginning.
My life had perfect timing. The beginning of November was when school decided to tackle me, and my computer decided to die on me.
But I accomplished some things.

1)I wrote ten thousand words. Those of you who write a lot are shaking your head sorrowfully, maybe even crying. But this is good for me. I don't have much time to write,
2)I've been taught a valuable lesson. If you want to write a book, write. Yeah, yeah, yeah, you read all about those on other blogs, but it takes a certain experience to listen.
3)I've fallen in love. Not in that way, but NaNo was just the break I needed to make me yearn for Eberheardt.
4) And next year? Maybe I'll try NaNoWraMo, if it comes up again.

Hope you guys did better than me! Share in the comments!

Peace, Love, and Books,


  1. Riv! *tackles*

    Don't worry, we failed together. I only got 19k --something around that number--finished, so I too am a failure.

    What you've learned is definitely valuable. Books did involve you having to write... A LOT.

    That's great you're eager to work on Eberheardt again. Best of luck to you!
