my non-belief in mountains || don't sneeze

Saturday, March 05, 2016


Getting colds are quite dreadful. You practically must sit up in bed all night, for fear of suffocation.


A friend of mind also informed me that your heart stops when you sneeze.


....*thinks* 


so, whatever you do. Don't sneeze too much.


Did you also know that some people also sneeze from the reaction of the bright sun? (I'm one of those people..)




I'm in this writing rut at the moment. You know why?


...I can't describe mountains. I have never seen mountains. Therefore, I have a hard time making them huge, and


describing trekking through mountain terrain.


For some reason, I just can't get past that. :P


have any tips for describing surroundings?


do you sneeze in reaction the sun?

    1. lol! The thing about colds is, you constantly feel like sneezing—but you don't often. (At least I don't!)
      I KNOW. I die every time you post pictures of the mountains on your blog. Seriously so lucky. XD

  5. Unfortunately I haven't seen mountains either, so I can't really help you there. All I know is they're big...and they're majestic...and beautiful...just go to Thesaurus.com and look up a bunch of adjectives. ;-P

  7. I guess I've taken seeing mountains for granted, where we live you can see Mount Saint Helens, Mount hood, and Mount rainier. I've never been to any of them before, but they're only a few hours away. They're also all snow covered, and Mount Saint Helens has a flat top because its actually an inactive volcano that erupted when my mom was little.

    2. She was actually a few hours away, but apparently she was close enough that some of the ashes traveled to her house.

  9. When I saw the title of this post, I instantly had the impulse to comment "Achoo!" as a joke... but then I read the post! Yikes! I don't want my heart to stop XD

    Hm, as for tips for describing surroundings, particularly big things that one has never seen before... I guess my only tip would be to make the reader (who might not also have never seen mountains) feel the hugeness and awe of the size by something that IS familiar to them/you. So... like, I don't know, walking in a valley created by mountains, the character could mentally liken them to large, much-more ancient, sentient skyscrapers... or something. XP Ack! I don't know.

    1. LOL. Sounds like something I would do. XD

      weeellll, I couldn't exactly compare them to a skyscraper...considering my book is set in medieval times. *ahem* that would be rather strange. XD haha, thanks for the tip, I would always compare it to some other object though. Thanks! XD

    2. You could compare them to like looming castle towers or something like that though. ;)

  10. I'm one of the people who sneezes at the sun, too! xD

  11. *sweeps hand in elegant motion* There are mountains over here, dear! C'mon over! They're not big (the Appalachian Mountains are more like big rolling hills than what most people picture mountains to be like), but maybe it'll help out a bit. ;) Moving here was the first time I ever saw a mountain. (Technically we saw mountains in Tennessee on the way over, those were awesome.) But the mountains in Virginia... ohmyword. Come with me, and we'll go and stand on top of one and look down over the valley in fall and AGH I WANNA GO. I got to see them when I went down with my piano teacher to BJU for the competition. We drove through them, and I remember I was talking on the phone to a friend and the reception was really bad. :P That's my mountain experience-story, haha...

    1. *jaw drop* so jealous. XD our mountains here are sledding hills. *ahem* Not very large. XD YES. YES. YES. LET'S DO. I remember one time we were driving somewhere for vacation (I was little, kay?) and we drove up this super, super, SUPER steep road. We were in the clouds. THE CLOUDS. IN OUR CAR. DRIVING. ON A ROAD. XD It was awesome.
