Naming Your Characters

Naming your characters is just so important.

Don’t you think?

Your character’s name carries so much weight on its back. It determines where they’re from, their history, maybe even if someone reads the book or not.

Simple Ways to Declutter Your Desk

My desk. Oh, my desk.

I’ve never been good at keeping it organized. I find myself doing a major desk cleanout every couple of months. Each time, I scold myself and decide that it’ll be the last time. I’ll do better from now on. It never is.

Still, there’s something about a clean desk. It makes me feel energized, inspired, and ready for anything that comes my way. Come at me, writer’s block! (Actually, please don’t.) I just feel so happy and fresh when my desk is clean and organized.

8 World War 2 Books I Love

Hi everybody! Welcome back to Purely Olivia. 🙂 I need to apologize for the lack of posts since my first one, back on August 15th. Since then, I’ve been dealing with a technical difficulty that had an (embarrassingly) simple answer brought to me via the WordPress forums. I was unable to post..but now I’m back!

Also, I am going to stick to my Monday posting routine (I think) but I’m still figuring out the times on the scheduling-posts-thing, so I’m sorry this ended up being posted Sunday night.
