July Camp WriMo

November is one of my absolute favorite months. I've completed 6 NaNoWriMos and managed to win every time (sometimes only making the midnight deadline by the skin of my teeth, whew talk about a rush!)... But waiting until November every year is hard. I'm a super competitive person who loves challenges in all shapes and forms, for me nothing is a better motivator. The competitive nature that comes out in me during NaNo pushes me to write harder and longer; I love writing until my fingers hurt and pushing myself to my creative limits. If like me, you hate waiting a whole year, camp is an awesomely fun way to keep the noveling spirit alive.This Camp is my first, and so far I'm having so much fun. I set an insanely high goal for myself (during Camps you can choose your own word count goal) and I'm loving the extra push it's giving me! Other reasons why I love camp: The Camp theme is awesome and very fit for summer. Who doesn't like summer camp? Especially one fo…

Bout of Books!

Okay so I've been M.I.A. for, oh... ages, and what better way to get back into the literary world I love than a super fun Bout of Books read-a-thon?! I'm a day late, but I plan to read like crazy the rest of the week.

From the Bout of Books Website
The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, May 13th and runs through Sunday, May 19th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure, and the only reading competition is between you and your usual number of books read in a week. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 7.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team

Relaunching To Think in Ink!

Hello strangers, its been a while... okay, a  loooong while. My blogging has been sporadic at best and its been months since I've posted anything. Crazy! Where does time go? I swear there is a leak in the great cosmic hour glass and days keep getting shorter and shorter as sand seeps through the tiny crack.

I've still been writing (perhaps not as much as I should) and editing (man am I sick of that part!) but keeping up with everything else has kept me away from blogging and I miss it, and all of my awesome blogger friends, like crazy... And thus, my grand relaunch of To Think in Ink!

*manic confetti throwing*

I've had blogging on my To-Do list since January 1st but somehow the month disappeared. The first week of February is almost as good, right? Smile and nod--"Sure, Ms. Briar, lets pretend the New Year starts in February and that's when we make resolutions. Your lack of date keeping is completely normal." Okay, maybe not normal, but there has to be other …
