Writing 101 Day #6 (Late): Space to Work

Hello everyone. As I mentioned in a quick post, I will be trying to do and finish up Writing 101 and Blogging 201 ASAP even though both are over. If you are unfamiliar with this course check out the link here. Today`s prompt is to describe the space you write in. Normally I write in my bedroom. Believe it or not, all I use is my iPad and my notebook dedicated to my blog. I like it to be as quiet as possible though I do enjoy listening to Pandora while writing. Occasionally like I am now, I write on a computer at the local library. I don’t have access to a good quality computer so this is the next best thing. It’s fairly quiet at the library which makes for good solid writing. Google is my friend for any research and pictures. I haven’t figured out how to do fancy pictures and headings because 99% of the good quality programs require a computer. My space isn’t anything fancy but it is what helps shape this blog into what it is today.

We are required to insert a poll at the end of this and collect ideas for future posts for a few weeks. I will do a week or so at the most and try to check back often. Please be honest on what you would like to see.

Thanks for reading and Stay tuned for more!

*Blogging 201 and Writing 101 Announcement!*

Hey everyone! I feel like I haven’t posted in forever. I’m terribly sorry about that. I just wanted to let you know what’s going on. As many of you probably noticed, I started posting Writing 101 and Blogging 201 but then stopped. Both of the courses have ended but I will still be trying to get those out to you ASAP. I will try to schedule more posts this week but I can’t guarantee anything.

I love you guys so much and can’t thank you enough for all the support.

Sophie Maxim survived a shipwreck as a baby. Her life really started when an eccentric but loving bachelor brings her home. Charles is laid back. He  uses toast as a bookmark and approves of Sophie drawing on the walls. When child protective services threaten to remove Sophie to an orphanage, Charles and Sophie run off to Paris. They search for one thing that can save her. Her long lost mother. In Paris, Sophie meets a group of children who live under the radar on the rooftops and learns that you never ignore a possible, sometimes the impossible comes true.

The second book is called Vet Volunteers Acting Out. This is the 14th book in the series, and the last one that I can get ahold of at the moment. For now, I’ll be moving onto a different series that still has to do with animals. More will be revealed next week 🙂
