The End of NaNoWriMo, The Beginning of a New Novel!

Hey guys, it’s Meagan and today I’m here with writing new! *gasp!* I actually wrote something! Crazy, I know! But the truth is, this news is actually just about me finishing an outline, so, not as impressive.
But, as stated above, this past week I kind of ditched NaNoWriMo to outline a new idea that has been eating away at me for a while now. So I sat down and started outlining. I sat myself at my computer all Thanksgiving break and wrote. I wrote until I had 7 pages and 3,000 words filling them. Then I felt so confident about the story that I immediately started writing the story and I’m now 600 words in! The reason I wanted to share this with y’all is because, this is the most confident I’ve ever felt about an idea of mine and I feel like it could go somewhere! Below will be a one sentence synopsis of the novel for anyone who is curious.
"A girl with the newfound ability to manipulate the wind gets caught in-between a war between two powerful groups with element based abilities.&…

NaNoWriMo Update!

Image
Hello guys, it’s Meagan, and today I’m here with a NaNoWriMo update!
So, the month is almost over and, sadly, I haven’t been able to any updates, but I’m here now! I have been writing through this month, just not as much as I hoped. My current word count is 2,885 words. So obviously I’m not going to make the 50,000 word count, but I’m just happy that I got any words on the page and that I’m making progress in my story!
Also, if you would like to hear more about my NaNoWriMo adventure you can click here and watch my YouTube vlog update where I talk more about what’s been going on this month!

Mockingjay Movie Review

Image
So I'm back from seeing Mockingjay Part 1, and my initial thoughts ate that I really enjoyed it! For any of you who don't know, Mockingjay is my least favorite of the books so I was kind of cautious going into this movie but it surpassed my expectations!
First, can we talk about that acting! Jennifer Laurence did an AMAZING job and her chemistry with Liam was great too! While Gale is not my favorite, I really liked getting to see their relationship grow and the two of them bond. Josh Hutcherson also did a great job of making you sympathize for his character.
This movie also had a ton of character development! I feel like since everyone is just in a new situation (district 13) it causes their character to grow and develop. I can’t wait to see that continue in Part 2, as well as see more of my favorite characters!
Another thing I really loved in this movie was the score. I normally don’t notice score in movies (and that’s something I’m trying to get better at) but I definitely noti…

The Retribution of Mara Dyer Review

Image
Hello guys, it’s Meagan and today I’m here to review the insane, crazy, amazing book the is The Retribution of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin. *NOTE* This is the last book in the Mara Dyer series so I don’t recommend reading any further unless you have read up to at least the second book in the series (The Evolution of Mara Dyer).
It had to end sometime, but Mara had no idea it would end like this. Experience the mind-blowing conclusion to the New York Times bestselling Mara Dyer trilogy. Mara Dyer wants to believe there's more to the lies she’s been told. There is. She doesn’t stop to think about where her quest for the truth might lead. She should. She never had to imagine how far she would go for vengeance. She will now. Loyalties are betrayed, guilt and innocence tangle, and fate and chance collide in this shocking conclusion to Mara Dyer’s story. Retribution has arrived.-goodreads.com summery
Rating I would say that I would reread this book! *gasp!* Big shocker, I know! My favorite series,…
