Links for a Lazy Sunday


Happy Sunday! I’m a little groggy today, because instead of going to bed early like I planned so that I would feel fresh in the morning to put together the blog post, do my NaNoWriMo daily writing, and study for the GRE (which I’m taking in less than a week!) I stayed up past three in the morning reading Along for the Ride, by Sarah Dessen. In honor of this late night reading, I thought I’d share a post suggests other authors for fans of Dessen’s books. Here are some other great links from around the web:

  1. Good luck with NaNoWriMo! And the GRE. I took mine last year and the general test is really easy. The English test…well studying won’t help…but it will get you nice and humble for when you start your master’s program. What kind of program are you thinking about?

    1. Luckily I don’t have to take the English Test (at least not yet). I’ve applied to three pretty different programs, two in creative writing one in publishing. Would love any advice or thoughts you have, since you’ve been through this process before.

      1. test on the GRE website and I got a study guide book that really helped me refresh my math skills. Otherwise its not actually too hard. Just take your time and read all your answer choices. I’m an MA student so I’m not too familiar with MFA writing requirements but test wise I imagine they’re the same.

  2. Thanks for the mention!! I’m glad someone enjoyed my Game of Thrones geek-out, haha.

    Good look with the GRE! Honestly, the hardest part of that test was the anticipation. It’s intimidating, but like cross(stitch)yourheart said, it’s really not that bad at all. Especially if you’re a good writer, as you very clearly are. Focus on the vocab, and you’re good as gold.

    And I think staying up late reading can be counted as studying (almost)! I mean, it’s helping improve reading comprehension, right? 🙂

    1. I loved your Lannister style! I’m just now working my way through the series, so it was perfect. Thank you for your advice, and support, about the GRE. At this point I’m just ready for it to be over.

      1. Thanks Sam, I’m trying to keep that moment in my head. Right now it’s too filled with nerves and math rules I never thought I’d have to know again after high school.
