NaNoWriMo 2017 Participant Flair

Today, I want to share a few books that started off as NaNoWriMo projects that turned into something bigger: published and bestsellers. 

Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen has been adapted into a film and is known as NaNoWriMo’s biggest commercial success.

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell is a hit with young adults. I’ve been meaning to get a copy of this book for the longest while, but I don’t know why I haven’t put in the order for it as yet.

Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins is another book that resonated well with young adults. I am always on the fence when it comes to YA. I have this book in PDF format, but I am just too lazy to start reading it.

The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern is a fantasy novel. It was written over the span of three NaNoWriMos. This book was also adapted into a film if I am not mistaken or is still in talks of being adapted into a film.

Wool by Hugh Howey is a post-apocalyptic thriller that belongs to volume 1 of the Silo series. Howey became the first self-published author to receive a six-figure print deal and keep the digital rights to the book.

Daily Prompt catch-up: 18th-20th November

Saturday 18th: Fear no more

What’s the thing you’re most scared to do? What would it take to get you to do it?

I have no idea. I don’t think I’m scared of doing anything at the moment, not even if I have to leave my comfort zone.

Sunday 19th: Perspective

Think about something that drives you crazy. Now, think about something that makes you happy. Does it change your perspective on the former?

Haha! One thing that drives me crazy is when someone listens to their music LOUD through their headphones and I can hear it. Something that makes me really happy is seeing the sunset on evenings. Those are two completely different things so it does not change my perspective on the former.

Monday 20th: Safety first

Share the story of a time you felt unsafe.

The world today is quite an unsafe place, but wherever I go, I always take God with me so I can’t recall the last time that I felt unsafe.

Positive Monday

Positive Monday: God is like oxygen

 :

We don’t see oxygen, yet, we trust that it’s there when we breathe. It’s like faith. Faith is belief with strong conviction. It is trust, assurance, and confidence in things not seen. I haven’t seen God face to face, but I trust Him with my life. He may not be visible to us, but His works surely are. All you have to do is look around.

Just as we put our trust/faith in someone/something, I don’t have to see God to know that He is there, guiding me along life’s winding path. My faith I place in Him completely and He has never let me down. He is the air that I breathe.

I trust that you’re having a blessed Monday! ❤
