Sassy at its finest.

I started this blog because…

I started this blog because I’m an aspiring writer. I felt that writing a blog once a week was the best way to get better at writing and get my name out there in some small way. Disclaimer: Nothing I say in any blog is a professional opinion of any kind lol.

I will try to update my blog once a week, I will post book reviews, short stories, poems, and sometimes just random thoughts tbh. There will be a facebook page for my blog where I will post in between blogs. I hope you enjoy reading my blog as much as I enjoy writing it!

Authors who Inspire Me.

I’ve been thinking a lot about authors who’s works have inspired me to write. I’ve compiled a short list of authors whose books/poems/works  made me want to write something of my own. This is a short, incomplete list.

  1. Harper Lee.
  2. C.S. Lewis.
  3. William Shakespeare.
  4. Emily Dickenson.
  5. J.K. Rowling.

I left it at the first five authors I could think of. Like my Facebook Page SassySlone and check back on Thursdays for more posts!

Changing it up.

I have decided instead of sticking with topics like I’ve written about it the past, I’m going to start writing book reviews. instead of posting about a random topic once a week I’m going to post book reviews once every two weeks. Not all of my reviews will be over new books or even trending books, but I love to read and I think the best way to have time to read and write is to read a book and then write a review about it.

Favorite Movies.

I know I typically post about writing or books, but just this once I thought I’d post a SHORT  list of some of my favorite movies. Some of these are super old, some are Disney movies but either way they’re some of my favorites. Don’t forget to like my Facebook page SassySlone.

  1.   Tombstone.
  2. Dumbo. (Yes, the Disney movie.)
  3. A Year Without a Santa Claus (Don’t judge me.)
  4. Beach Blanket Bingo.
  5. The Man From Snowy River.
  6. The Quiet Man.
  7. Tammy.
  8. Pale Rider.
  9. Pretty Woman.
  10. The Outlaw Josey Wales.
  11. Alice in Wonderland.
  12. Alice Through the Looking Glass.
  13. The Sons of Katie Elder.
  14. 27 Dresses.
  15. I Hate Valentines Day.
  16. Hope Floats.
  17. Revenge of the Bridesmaids.
  18. Drinking Buddies.
  19. Leap Year.
  20. Man Up.
  21. Spanglish.

23 is enough. I could go on with this list forever. Let me know what some of your favorite movies are and like my Facebook page SassySlone.

Procrastination.

All writer’s at some point or another begin to procrastinate instead of write, I tend to do this fairly often. So while I was procrastinating, I created a list of things I’ve don’t in the past solely to procrastinate. I thought that by writing this I’d be holding myself more accountable and maybe I’d procrastinate less. I hope you can relate. Like my Facebook page SassySlone.

  1.    I made a list of things I’ve done to procrastinate.
  2. Once, I looked through every piece of jewelry I owned to ‘get rid of some things.’ I kept everything and later realized I was just procrastinating.
  3. I re-read a couple things I had written in hopes of finding inspiration.
  4. I have a tendency to avoid one days work by creating a to-do-list for the next day.
  5. I watch Netflix wayyyy too much.
  6. I googled how to stop procrastinating.
  7. I created a schedule for myself in the hopes of becoming more productive but it was a total waste of time.
  8. I’ve read old diary/journal entries and then decided to start another journal.. I never got around to it.
  9. I downloaded random, free, apps on my phone and played them for longer than I should’ve.
  10. I’ve looked for songs to inspire or motivate me to write instead of procrastinating.

The list could go on and on but it only took 10 things for me to realize that I need to stop procrastinating and write because if I’m being honest this post was just me procrastinating.
