What To Do While In The Midst Of Procrastinating (Like We Need Help Anyway)

Today, I was supposed to post Organize Your World part 4. But guess what??

I PROCRASTINATED YAY!!

And don’t think I had a good excuse.

‘I’m thinking’ is just another way to say I haven’t done it yet and I don’t really want to so I’m making a bunch of excuses to avoid it.

So, yes, I avoided writing the post I had meant to write, and instead wrote about all the things I’ve been doing in the meantime you can do while being stubborn and procrastinating.

Have fun. I’ll be in a pit of despair.dividerflat

How To Get People To NOT Follow Your Blog!! (Super-Duper Helpful Tips You NEED)

Hi! It’s that time of the week again: helpful blogging tips from Abby! And this week, we’re going to talk about how to get people to unfollow or completely ignore your blog!

It’s useful to have a very low amount of followers – all the pros know this – because you need room for the other people who want to follow! Otherwise, you’re just going to have a HUGE number. And we can’t let that happen, now can we? 😉 😉 😉

#OYW – Planner Tour & Organized Blogging Pt 1

Heyo, everybody!! It’s week number three of #OrganizeYourWorld! Honestly, I didn’t know until yesterday that I was going to be like Susanne Collins and split the last segment up into two parts. But here we are so yeah!

Bloggers (and writers) especially seem to have a hard time with procrastination. School, writing, work, chores… somehow, we continue to push them away until the last possible second. We may not intend to do it, but it always seems to happen. So how do you take back your time?

Weeeellll, part one is all about scheduling your time and posts by using a planner or bullet journal. Yes, folks, today I’ll be introducing you to my baby 2018 Erin Condren Planner. And I’m totally going to be a dork about organizing and planners again! WOHOO!

(actually me 24/7)

That is what you came here for, isn’t it?

YA/Classic Romances (The Good, The Bad, & The Tragic [PLUS SURVEY RESULTS HEH HEH])

It’s almost Valentine’s Day! The day of love and happiness (that usually ends with those chalk candies all over the place, eww) and buying expensive stuff to bestow on your other half!

Unless, you know, you’re single like me and spend the day eating all the chocolate cake in close proximity 🙂

But, for bookworms, this is also the day where we get to go crazy over our literary crushes and imagine all out OTPs in those corny ads on TV. Because if we aren’t ‘in a relationship,’ then at least let us pour over our books and scream over our ships, okay??

Speaking of ships… that’s what we’re talking about today. We’re going to go through all the different types of relationships in YA fiction (and some other things, too, hehe) and how some of them are stupid and some of them are THE BEST THING TO EVER HAPPEN TO BOOKIES.

So, grab your chocolate cake and let’s get started.

#OrganizeYourWorld – Tech Organization

It’s post number two of #OrganizeYourWorld!!

design-40

So it appears the first post was a success, no matter how incredibly scatterbrained and rant-y it was! I was really happy to see your reactions; yay for organizing friends 😀

Unfortunately, some of you don’t use desks. And that made me upset, because I want everybody who reads to at least have the opportunity to organize through #OYW. It’s fun! It’s a group activity! (in a way…)

But this week is about something EVERYBODY uses. It’s what you’re using right now to read this. It’s…. technology!!

If you’re a writer, blogger, student, or human being living in 21st century America, it’s safe to say that you’re pretty familiar with technology. But it’s also safe to say that your documents, pictures, and apps are at least a little bit cluttered with everything going on in busy busy LIFE.

Because Life™ is just so considerate.

THANKFULLY you’ve got a girl on your team who’s so crazy about organizing, she made a mini guide for you! Soo… let’s get to it! *jazz hands*

8 Writer & Bookworm Stereotypes (That May Or May Not Be True I’m Not Sure??)

Stereotypes. We talk about them all the time in the writing and blogging world, and that’s mostly because they’re controversial. Should our characters conform to stereotypes? Should writers use stereotypes as bases for characters, even if just in certain circumstances? It’s kinda old, at this point.

WELL HAHA GUESS WHAT WE’RE TALKING ABOUT! *pretends people can’t read the title of the post*

It’s preeety clear that writers and bookworms are stereotyped just as much as our precious characters, and it’s reflected in the media – EVEN IN OUR OWN BOOKS WHY?? And a lot of them aren’t actually true!

But then… some of them are true!

shrug

You know what, I’m just going to let the post speak for itself.

#OrganizeYourWorld – DIY Desk Makeover (+ Desk Hacks!)

Welcome to the first post of my #OrganizeYourWorld series!

design-40

IM SO HOOPED YALL. SO. HOOPED.

I got lots of support from last post’s comments about this series so that made me extra extra excited to get going on this organizing stuff! To be perfectly honest, I’m also a little nervous – it’s my first series and it’s on a very wide topic aaahhhhh! – but your support is super encouraging so thank you so much ❤

To kick off the 4-part series, we’re going to be addressing what I feel is a pretty big topic when it comes to organizing – workspaces. AKA your desk, AKA the thing you probably use 20+ hours a week. And, at least at first sight, this is a pretty overwhelming project.

BUT WHY ELSE DO YOU THINK I HAVE THIS SERIES?? Let’s get started!!

My Long TBR List (Please Help I’m Drowning In Expectations)

*there’s a big announcement at the bottom of this post 😉 *

I like books.

Just kidding. I don’t like books. I love books.

Can’t get enough of them. Give me a good book and I’m entertained the whole time that it takes to read. And most of the time I will not leave my room until I’ve finished the whole thing. You guys get me.

But then… I need more books. Good thing we bookies have the glorious To-Be-Read list. That is, until you realize just exactly how many books are on there. And then you have to pick which one out of dozens to read. And then every time you finish one book another 3 are added to the list???

This does not compute!!

what

Thankfully there’s this thing called ‘my blog’ where there are people who like reading and writing (haha that’s you guys) and can sympathize. And weep. And all the other things because we’re all bookies and have 20 piles of books to read.

help these TBR’s are drowning meee

A Bunch Of Awards (Am I Really This Popular??)

Hi guys. So I’m popular now.

Let me explain how this happened (and no I’m not actually popular and will never be, thank you very much).

I got nominated for awards…5 times???

OHMYGOODNESS GUYS. I FEEL APPRITIATED IN MY ART FORM HAHAH.

I was tagged for the Liebster Award by four lovely ladies: Faye, EmSarah, and Olivia.

And then I got tagged AGAIN for this award I’ve never heard of, The New Blogger Award (which makes me extra special because I’m new) by Starling!

THANKS GUYS!! It’s always kind of crazy to get mentions like this from blogs you read all the time so you guys kinda made my day. (Or days. Yanno, I’m far too technical.)

Fears Of A Writer (And Why They Should Not Be Feared!)

Hi, guys. I literally can’t think of anything to do for this intro so I’m just going to see where this goes, because I’ve tried so many ways and nothing worked??

Anyway… *coughs violently*

So the other day I was thinking about all the things that hold me back from my writing. Maybe I don’t have enough practice editing. Maybe I need to finish another novel.

Or maybe… I’M JUST PLAIN SCARED.

scared

It’s true!! I don’t need to just write *more* to be a better writer, I need to get rid of the fears that are holding me back. And, lol, there are tons.

To make writing life just a tad bit easier and more relatable, here are a few big writer fears, especially for us teen writers ❤
