HOUR 8

“Okay, okay,” I mutter to myself as I walk toward the next room. “Calm down. It was all in your head. It’s all just in your head.”

It’s in your head.

It’s in your head.

It’s in your head.

 

I cross the hole in a wall where a door used to stand and step into a corridor with about five doors on each side of it. I open the first door on my right.

 

He’s in my room.

 

Mara is in the room. Continue reading “Night at the Asylum – Hours 8-10”

Mini Halloween Book Tag

Hello everybody! October is almost over which means 2 things:

  1. Candies and chocolate come to mama//Halloween
  2. NANOWRIMO OH MY GOD WILL I MAKE IT OUT ALIVE?

In-between panic attacks, I felt like doing a quick book tag on the theme of Halloween, and of course I found out there’s a LOT of tags on that theme out there, and I got a little overwhelmed at the idea of finding one, since most of them are quite long. So I just decided to make my own little Halloween Tag.

Here it is!

How I Plan my Trips – Travel More Series

We all want to get the most of our trips. We worked all year to afford them, we only have 10 days to visit as much of our dream city as we can, and we feel a little overwhelmed at the idea of doing this right.

Where to start?

I used to plan every single detail of my trips, and to be honest the more I travel the less I plan (if I plan at all, like I did in Nicaragua). Nothing is going to go exactly as you expected anyway. And it’s always great to be flexible not to miss out on awesome opportunities that will arise out of nowhere.

But the way I plan a trip can be divided in THREE CATEGORIES. Here they are: Continue reading “How I Plan my Trips – Travel More Series”

How I Travel So Much

The Travel More series was inspired by Marica, who asked me a few questions about my travel habits that I hope I’ll be able to answer in my next three posts! (Thank you so much for your interest and your loyal follow of my blog, Marica! You’re the  best!)

Before I jump into this, I’d like to share with you something that annoys me.

What annoys the hell out of me: When I announce to my friends that I’m going to, say Ireland, and they all go: “OH MY GOD YOU’RE SO LUCKY!”

Top 5 Books to Read During Back to School

September usually marks the beginning of a new school term, and I honestly didn’t think I’d be going to school this year, but life has a way of driving on my plans with a bulldozer.

For a couple of weeks, and against all my survival instincts, I swear, I’ve been really interested in a course with the University of Toronto that’s only available in class, and I decided to scream: I’M HERE, DEBTS, FIRE AWAY!

I registered. Continue reading “Top 5 Books to Read During Back to School”

Editing a Short Story – Before & After

Editing is weird.

Part of me really hates it because work bleeehhh.

Part of me really loves it because the satisfaction in stripping down a piece of writing and making it sound much better is just addictive. So addictive in fact that it’s hard to take a step back from the work and realize that it’s as close as finished as it can be.

I recently edited a short story of mine, Pink Hair, Red Blood, and I felt like sharing an excerpt of the edited version with you guys. Just cause.

So here goes.
