I'm really struggling with writing.

I've been blaming it on being busy or because of the disaster my life has been lately, but really, it's because I'm scared. Completely terrified.

I'm finally at a point in my life where writing a book and getting published is a realistic goal.

I've graduated high school.

I don't have to worry about getting my mom's approval to do it.

But I'm so afraid of rejection.

Which is odd because I've spent the last 4 years auditioning for show after show with nothing but rejection, I should be used to it by now.

But at the same time, can you ever truly get used to rejection? There's always going to be that feeling in the pit of your stomach when it happens again...

Book Review: Prize of My Heart by Lisa Norato

Let me start by saying that I am probably the worst person to review historical fiction books, I have yet to meet one that I didn't like. So, my love for historical fiction does not help me be objective, but I'll try.

Prize of My Heart is the story of a man, Brogan Talvis, on a mission to find his son. I found the characters to be realistic and very relatable. The plot and timing were great, I didn't find myself bored and wanting to stop reading like I have while reading some historical fiction novels.

The only negative I have is that the story starts off a tiny bit slow.

Disclaimer: I received this book for review from Bethany House Publishing.

My Youtube Channel

Okay, so you guys have probably noticed that I don't post here any more...

I know I've posted a million "I just don't feel up to blogging anymore" and "I'm back!!!" posts.

But for real, blogging takes a lot more effort than most people would think, trying to come up with topics and then try to say what you want to say in a well spoken way, its a lot of effort.

Which is why I've been doing youtube videos. I can record in 5-10 minutes and if I don't feel like editing then that's as long as it takes, I can upload and leave.

Like I've said before, I might post here occasionally and I'm still accepting guest posts, I still get a fair amount of hits.

Here are some of my most recent videos:
