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!

Hey Blogger Buds,
Sorry for the MIAness. Life happens.
I've discovered what the most sadistic creatures in the entire universe are.
And I have proof.

Proof 1: We have conversations that go something like this:
Awesome Author 1: Great news! I wrote an awesome scene in my MS today!
Awesome Author 2: Good job! What's it about?
Author 1: I killed off 5 characters!
Author 2: 5? Wow.
1: Yeah! And it was soooo cool. There was TONS of drama, and the surviving characters were soooo sad, and there was blood everywhere. And it was a great fight. Lots of description and mauling and death! And it was original!
2: Very impressive. You're an author to be admired. *high five*


Proof 2: Any advice you get on writing will include something along the lines of:
Awesome Author 1: Do whatever you can to stop your MC reaching their goal. Make them suffer. Make life as difficult as you can.
Awesome Author 2: *runs off and drops grand piano on MC's family, best friend, and boyfriend.

Proof 3:
Awesome Author 1: I'm bored. What should I do? ... I know! Let's go stick my character in a dungeon!

Proof 4: Not sure about you guys, but the front page in one of my notebooks is a list. A LIVE/DIE list. The die list is longer than the live list. There's also a MAYBE list, for those with who I don't know what do.

Proof 5: In aforementioned list, my two MCs lose their loved ones.

Proof 6: I have another page in the notebook about boy-girl relationships in the same WIP. I also put down in that list if the relationship dies...along with a character.

Proof 7: I was scribbling down a scene where an MC of mine was in agony over losing their loved one. I was crying even as I made my character's perfect composure crumble.

Proof 8: Read a book. Look at the events that take place. That's proof enough.

Proof 9: You really need more?

Proof 10: I was able to come up with 10 proofs of our sadism!

Peace and pianos,

  1. Buahahaha. I like. Never thought of authors as sadists but that is apparently very true.
