Blog Posts I Enjoyed Recently

Okay, so one of the things I am trying to do this year on Opal Swirls is do posts about the books I have been reading, blog posts I have enjoyed and just stuff thats going on, in the internet sphere and my life.

I already did a post about books, here. Cleary, with the amount of books I eat, you will need another update soon. I LIKE IT WHEN YOU TELL ME WHAT TO READ. I know I am your Fearless Leader but you are allowed to boss me around when it comes to books.

I'm going to tittle these posts Books I Have Eaten Recently, Blog Posts I Enjoyed Recently and Life Recently. If you look upward, you will notice that this post is Blog Posts I Enjoyed Recently. I also allow you to boss me around about blogs. Do you read a good blog I don't?


Okay, how many people in our lives need this post? Being a writers best friend is a weird job. How many of your friends know about your writing? Lots of my friends are into writing, so I have a bit of support. I'm quite lucky and I never realised it until I read this post! 

Show Don't Tell Explained @ Brett Michael Orr
THANK YOU. Finally, show don't tell explained properly. The muddy water has been cleared for me. The bottom of the pool is very nice. 

A Myers-Briggs Post @ To the Barricade!
OBSESS. OBSESS. I could talk about MBTI for hours and hours. Writing different types can be hard. For me, the double whammy is XXFP. People with an F or P (or both) drive me mad!

This post had me laughing even after I finished it. I'm not a huge fan of public transport (two words: Germs. People), but, oh, the things you see while using it. 

My Life Through Books @ Sometimes I'm a Story 
Excuse me while I melt (again) into a pile of sobbing glitter because I GREW UP. 

Interactive Posts: 

People, can we talk for a minute about how much I love other people's characters? They are always so wonderfully flawed and amazing and just ASDFGHJKL why can't yall all be published already so I can read your stories?!

The Art of Characters @ Stori Tori's Blog 
My first ever link up! I didn't mess up! Now go forth, and linkup as well. I want to do all the linkups now. I AM LINKUP QUEEN (well, not really. I've only ever done this one). 

Art Tutorial @ Stained Glass Windows 
Okay, so I suck at art, but Rachel does not. She steps you through drawing the "Princess of the Wood". DO NOT QUESTION HER ART POWER. 

How To Survive Finals @ Random Rants by Rcubed
The ultimate guide to surviving exams (a narrative from a first-hand survivor!). We all need this in our lives, I'm telling you because I care. 

Writing Prompt @ Red Lettering 
Beware of Dragon. That is all.

Old writing. *sighs* *sighs again* I don't know what to else to say. 

Inspired #01 @ Autumn's Reading and Writings 
PRETTY PICTURES. A nice break from reading blog posts. 

Orange Flames in Night @ Joyful Maiden
Everyone's life is so exciting right now. Fire! Mysteries! But things like this happen in New Zealand?!

Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award responses so far: 

TW said she would bring me cookies, while Mary said she is going to usurp me. Clearly, TW is my favourite mortal while I keep a close eye on Mary. Annika said she will only bring me cookies if she had to and she was under my jurisdiction.
