Walking Through the Witches

busy mockingbird

People ask me sometimes about ballpoint pen and how I use it in my drawings. They’ll say that when they use it, it smears or gets discolored. And I say, “that’s because no one in their right mind should be using ballpoint pen.” But I can’t help it–that’s what I like. It’s what I’ve ALWAYS liked, and what I’m most comfortable with. It’s cheap, portable, easy to find, easy to carry.

But it does have a couple of issues.

Don’t be scared, though! When I was younger, information was a lot harder to find, and I was about the only one I ever knew that drew with a PEN. Nowadays, there are TONS of fine artists that use ballpoint (sometimes they call it “biro”), and do some AMAZING work. I don’t know what they go through, but here are some things I’ve learned…

THE PEN ITSELF

I’ve learned that I…

Just. Keep. Writing.

Victoria (V.E.) Schwab

Hey there, lovelies!

I know it’s been awhile since I posted. I’ve spent the last few months buried under deadlines and finishing up coursework–so far this year I’ve gone to grad school, and written and edited THREE books, all coming out next year–and getting ready to head back to Nashville.

But in the slivers of space between, I’ve been reflecting a lot–about writing, publishing, advice–and I wanted to talk about a piece of advice that I know seems trite, but is honestly the best I can give. I’ll try to explain why.

Five years into my publishing career, I finally feel like I have my feet under me, and because of that, I’m often asked for advice.

When writers–aspiring, debut, and established–ask for insight, I always say, “Just keep writing.”

And I know that sounds like a very Dory thing to say, but the fact of the matter is, if…

The Swelling has fallen (Finally)

Actually, it’s been a few days since the swelling has fallen down. I feel much better after that steroid shot right after a few days! Hoping I won’t get stung again in a few months. Still in summer school, I will expect things to get a little fun than sitting inside all day doing boring games. Since the past two years of spending an extra month in some school for fun, going to a golf course and two days later going to a local pool. I want something different. I WANNA GO TO A GODDAM PLACE FULL OF THINGS I LIKE TO LAUGH AT LIKE GOING TO A CON AT THE NEAREST CITY TO BE AT.

I’ve always wanted something new to my possession of interest since 2 years later being at a summer school, 4 extra painful weeks. I only go summer school because I don’t want a single summer to be boring as hell. At least. I might write about things no one will care about.

Swimming Pool – Cooling Wet Experience

Today was a fun day, I went to our local pool with my step father! The first thing was when I heard he mentioned “I’m going to the pool with the baby” and I was instantly felt excited. I love the feeling of water all over me! There was a catch, I had to wait for the pool to open based that it has to get warmer (Which I strongly agree with) or else I’ll freeze to death.
