August was a beautiful month and I can’t believe that I am already saying good bye. Oh, how the time is flying by so fast before our very eyes!

(For we are but of yesterday, and know nothing, because our days upon earth are a shadow). JOB 8:9

Theย days are really numbered, yet, some of us are still looking for signs to proclaim the end of time.ย

September Plans!

Going with the flow is what I do now. ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ve been giving my blog a makeover little by little because I can’t afford to spend an entire day on my blog anymore. Life is catching up with me and I’ve been scheduling most of my posts for the past month or so. This week, I didn’t even tweet anything, but I don’t miss the platform. However, I plan to conquer Wattpad, so this month, I’ll be spending more time over there than here because I’ve got a sneaky plan. *rubs hands together deviously*

Kidding! Kidding! I don’t want the world, but I’ll be spending some time trying to build an audience over on Wattpad. I have some exciting news regarding my writing, but I don’t want to jinx anything so I won’t mention it until that actually happens. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m going to try my utmost best to work on the Sunday Shorts which I’ve neglected in the past few weeks and I am still doing the Tom Cruise Movie Challenge, so I may watch two of his movies this month. I am thinking of featuring another YouTube content and I’m yet to start the A to Z challenge. I hope I can do that soon!

I know I probably say this every month whenever I do a post like this, but I have exciting posts coming up! I’ll try to keep up my daily posts as I steer the wheel of this thing call life with God by my side. I’m pretty much hyped for this month!

Teaser Tuesday: Wattpad covers!

Working on my Wattpad covers was a creative process because I enjoyed choosing the fonts and colors. ๐Ÿ™‚

Teaser Tuesday:

First, I’ll like to thank you wonderful readers for your awesome feedback that you’ve left me regarding myย signatureย last week. I had decided on a banner-like signature after reading all of your feedback and came up with something simpler that same evening. You might have seen it around recently if not, it’ll be at the very end of this post. A huge thank you!

Now down to business.ย 

I have not been as active as I would’ve liked on Wattpad. I do like the community and I’ve met some interesting people there, but I am yet to immerse myself in the atmosphere. I’ve posted a few stories and the response was good thus far for I still consider myself new. I got busy making and remaking covers earlier today and here are the results:

Voir Doir

This was written for a competition and it happens to be my first Wattpad short story. It currently has 31 views and 3 likes and it has been added to a reader’s Legal list. ๐Ÿ™‚

My Chosen

This got me back into the fanfiction swing! It’s been years since I’ve written a fan fic, but I couldn’t pass the opportunity up to write this short story after watching Tom Cruise in The Mummy. It currently has 72 views, 3 likes and it has also been added to a reader’s Setapai (my current story title) list. ๐Ÿ™‚

Writing Prompts

I have to admit that I hardly update this one. It has 119 views and 8 likes and it has been added to a reader’s Writing list. ๐Ÿ™‚

My Book Reviews

I’ve been posting my book reviews here on WordPress and over on Wattpad. I had to update the cover earlier because many of the writers simply skip pass the introduction and ask for reviewing of their work. I don’t mind reviewing Wattpad books, but I simply don’t have the time to read as much as I used to so I prefer to stick to the books that I am trying to read off my shelf. This one happens to be my most popular offering so far despite only 1000 reads and 44 likes. It has also been added to two readers’ Book Review lists. ๐Ÿ™‚

I have to thank my sister Denisia for helping me with the designs. Whenever I did a design, I’ll show it to her and she’ll vote yay or nay and tell me why it wasn’t working. Thank you, girl! โค

That’s all for this week’s Teaser Tuesday. Give it a thumbsย up if you like it and don’t… oh, wait, this isn’t YouTube! ๐Ÿ˜› Comment down below if you like or dislike any of the designs. I value your thoughts and opinions because you guys help me grow and improve. Enjoy what’s left of your Tuesday!

Hello, Wattpad!

I joined Wattpad in 2014ย but never fully utilized it and over time I’ve forgotten my password. Until recently when a friend of mine told me about a really exciting story that she wanted me to read. When I finally got on and looked around, I decided that I’ll like to live there and thus, my interest in this platform was renewed.

What is Wattpad?

Wattpadย is a community where writers post/share their work be it recipes, fiction, poetry, articles, non-fiction, fan fiction etc. It is a fun platform for writers to showcase their work and there are also contests available. It is a social network for authors to build a connection with their readers.

What can it do for you?

You can showcase/promote your work (even if it’s already published). Wattpad is a gift to writers given that it is changing the publishing game right now. Yes, stories have been getting published directly from the site, thanks to contests and publishing companies in search of the next best novel.

But don’t get too excited.

I see Wattpad as a stepping stone for authors who are interested in building their readership. Or you may have an idea for a novel and you’re not quite sure about it. Using this platform to talk about it can bring you feedbacks.

Why should you join?

Well, the choice is certainly up to you. Even if you’re not a writer, it is a reading haven for readers. Genres range from historical, romance, thriller, fantasy, young/new adult, teen fiction and TONS of fanfiction if you’re into that sort of thing. What I’ve noticed is that the bad boy is a favorite character to write.

What’s best about joining Wattpad? It’s free.

If you’re on Wattpad, I’ll love to hear your story.

365 Days of Writing

January 24th: Ready, set, go

 :

Set a timer for ten minutes. Open a new post. Start the timer, and start writing. When the timer goes off, publish.

Ten minutes! Wow! What do I write in ten minutes? Okay, the timer starts… NOW!

 :

I still don’t have an idea what to write in the space of ten minutes.

Should I talk about how my day is going? It’s fine, but I am waiting for four o’clock to get out of the office. Should I talk about my co-workers? They’re pretty awesome and they’re probably the best people I’ve worked with in years. I couldn’t have asked for better gals! Should I talk about my new writing project? They’re coming along fine. But you know what they say, too many things to do, too little time.

*thinks*

What should I talk about? How about Wattpad? I recently rejoined the platform and I am enjoying some of the stories. I encourage writers to have a look. What about books? I used to be a massive book hoarder, but I think I’m cured. I don’t buy many books like before and I don’t have a wishlist for 2017. A first.

Should I…?

Oh, look, the time’s up. Gotta go! It was nice being random for ten minutes.
