Happy Friday

Happy Friday #22 – Wordbuster and other stories…

Yay, it´s time for Happy Friday 😀 Looking forward to know what made you smile this week!

Writing: I am steadily moving forward, I am almost at 30 000 words and already have the next scenes in my head.

Critiquing: You have no idea how lucky I am to read Jaime´s manuscript. I can´t wait for her to snag a wonderful agent and get this baby published so I can gush about her writing with you (and about hmmm a certain someone in uniform…). Plus, we just got our own theme song now which let´s face it, makes us super cool 🙂

Reading: I just started THE NEAR WITCH by Victoria Schwab and I got pulled in with the first sentence: It starts with a crack, a sputter, and a spark.

Randomness: My Mother-In-Law was here this week so we enjoyed some nice family time altogether which included a very fun weekend. Oh and I also tried another yummy dessert from Katy´s deliciousness pinterest board aka Banana Caramel Cream from Glorious Treats. 

So, tell me, what made you smile this week?

Hmm margarita
Jenga fun!
A walk in Mainz…
Banana caramel YUM!


A blast from the past

Thank you again so much Kat for this award! I am now going to be able to showcase some of my past posts which can fit the seven provided headlines.

Let me tell you something, it´s really not that easy but it´s fun to look back 😀 I have been blogging since September 10th, 2011, so not a year yet but keeping this blog updated is really amazing. Not only did I meet wonderful people, I am also having a blast with it!

Most Popular Piece
If I am looking at the one which received the most comments (almost 100! well counting my replies I think but still :D) , it would be the flash fiction I did for the Campaigner Challenge. It was also the first flash fiction I ever wrote.

Most Controversial Piece
 The one where I wonder about vocabulary and how going through revising makes me think about the words we use in our YA novels.

Most Surprisingly Successful Piece
I was overwhelmed by the positive response and by the amount of comments this one post received. This is the one where I reveal my first name and no longer go by “commutinggirl” only.

Most Underrated Piece
I really enjoyed writing this piece but it was published before I had a lot lot of followers…And  I do still ask myself the same question from times to times…
