These are a few of my favorite things . . . (Giveaway)

**Now Closed**

This season is a special time of year: Thanksgiving, Christmas, Fantastic Beasts, Sherlock--er, I mean, New Years . . . blog birthdays.

Yes, blog birthdays! Exactly four years ago, I started my blog. And you know what this all means?

Time to giveaway some sweet stuff!! From some of my favorite things!

Two winners will get to pick from these items (BTW, they can both pick the same thing)

Back by popular demand, Newt's Hufflepuff scarf

😍 And, and and, to celebrate the new season of Sherlock (finally!!)

You can sip hot cocoa as you slip into your mind palace (great for writers and other creatives, too).

And for all you lovely writers, the #1 bestseller, The Emotion Thesaurus, one of my favorite writing references of all time. Ebook format, which as a writer, I find the most useful medium (have you tried holding open paperbacks while writing?? O_o ).

In my humble opinion, every writer should have this book.

One of the biggest problem areas for writers is conveying a character's emotions to the reader in a unique, compelling way. This book comes to the rescue by highlighting 75 emotions and listing the possible body language cues, thoughts, and visceral responses for each. Using its easy-to-navigate list format, readers can draw inspiration from character cues that range in intensity to match any emotional moment. The Emotion Thesaurus also tackles common emotion-related writing problems and provides methods to overcome them. This writing tool encourages writers to show, not tell emotion and is a creative brainstorming resource for any fiction project.

  1. Congrats on 4 years--that's awesome. I for one am SO GLAD you got into blogging!

    Don't enter me--I am just thrilled you included the ET. And I love the scarf--how awesome is that? If I tried to knit something, I'd probably end up strangling myself in the process, haha!


I love comments :)
