coral lamp || peaches

Wednesday, August 5, 2015

I finished editing my whole novella! Mixed feelings...yes, I'm glad to be done, no, I'm not glad to leave

it. :P My friend is going through all the editing (thanks!!) and boy, did I miss a lot. ;) After the editing if fully

finished (the part I most dread) sending it out to a few friends to critique. yay. :P 

I also finished my math (can you see why I haven't been posting lately?!) Yes, one day I did 9 lessons in a

day. *weary laugh* I'm glad to be done, but excited for the new school year. 

I got a new lamp for my room. I loveee it. It's a coral, I've really been needing one-it's just too dark to work in

there or do any school. It's now like my dream desk..I've always wanted a swivel chair and a lamp like that.

haha. It's really motivating when writing. :) Speaking of writing..I'm starting a new story! I plan to go a little

more relaxed with this one and have lots of fun. My new characters name begins with an "m" as did my older

character from my previous I often find myself writing the wrong name. lol. 

I also figured out how to do a french braid on myself. *yes!* That took forever..............haha. I found a new

easier way to do's funny, as you are going through your like "this is not turning out, this is not working,

ugh" but when you actually looks pretty nice. ;) Oh, and the photo with the peaches...yes, those are

our peaches..they are doing really well this year! mm!

Can you do a french braid on yourself?

What kind of desk/chair do you have?


  1. Editing is the hardest part of a novel, isn't it? It kills me when I have a sentence that I love but doesn't fit in that particular scene so I have to end up deleting it... :P French braids are actually the only kind of braid that I can do other than a regular braid-- I learned how to do it by watching someone for thirty minutes while I was stuck in a quiet room!

    xoxo Morning

    1. Sadly, yes. I think it's not too hard, but mostly dreading. YES. It's horrid! I usually like to move it somewhere else. ;) I love it when you write those scenes that you just loveee. :)
      Really? The french braid was super hard for me to learn, but it works well for my hair. ;) hahahaa. I figured it out from ;)

  2. Those pictures are so pretty:)
    Congrats on your novella!
    I can't french braid, but my sister does ALL kinds of stuff in my hair.

    1. aw, thanks Emily! Thank you! I'm excited to start something new, it's like a new adventure! Do you write?
      I wish I was better with hair...more often I put my hair in a braid, bun, or leave it down. lol. It's so hard for me, maybe because I have slicker hair. :P What texture is your hair?

  3. Congrats on completing your novella! It's weird to put down a story, isn't it? Good luck on editing. :)

    Also, I love the pictures. Beautiful job on the braid!

    1. Thanks, Dani! I actually just finished my first round of editing, so I'll be sending it out to some friends soon! :)
      Thank you! I'm working on actually isn't that hard.. :) Can you do a french braid?

  4. YAY! Good for you, Sarah! Ahh....I really dislike editing:p I also really, really, really, passionately despise math! Wow! 9 lessons in a day!? You are amazing, girl<3

    1. Thank you! haha, it can be bothersome. What is the most you have written for a story? :)
      Yes, math isn't my best friend..but it's not too horrible. LOL. Yes, I was going nuts. It was at the end of my math book, so it was getting a bit easier. ;)

  5. I love that first picture. And all those peaches look SO good. Yay for finishing editing (and french braiding your own hair!) I sadly can't . . .yet. Someday, I will master it. ;) But I'm not good at doing hair, and mine is hard to work with, = a difficult combination. ;D Anyway... have a great weekend! :)

    1. Thanks, Annalee! They really do, I LOVE peaches! Last year, we made peach blueberry jam. mm. Thank you! lol, I found an easier way to do it, so I finally figured it out. :)
      Yes, some hair textures make it harder for certain hairdos. :P Thanks, you too!

  6. I am so happy for you that you finished your novella:D
    I cannot french braid on myself :( It is just so hard. Any tips? :)
    My desk chair is the same one that I have had since I was eight and it still has Hannah Montana stickers on it... I really need a new desk chair lol!

    1. Thanks!! Keep working at yours! ;) hmm...try taking a little section at the top of your hair and put it in a ponytail then pin in, then begin braiding in a french braid. :D
      lol. I really love my blue swivel chair! :D You should totally find a swivel chair. ;)

  7. Congrats! Both on finishing a new draft of your novella, and on being able to French braid your own hair. My hair is so long (nearly past my butt) that I simply can't do my own -- it gets too tangly. I enjoy French braiding my daughters' hair, though, and Dutch braiding it too!
