In my Life

~ On the writerly front, lots of stuff happened in July! I got two fresh new book idea’s which I’m SUPER excited for. But I also did Camp NaNoWriMo and finished my WIP in 2 weeks, thus winning before you could officially win. Hurray me! But this week Pitch Wars started, finally and I submitted my WIP Three Seconds to Sunrise and I’m nervous and terrified and excited all at the same time.

~ I changed my Twitter handle! I still had Istyriabookblog, you know, my old blog and I’ve been wanting to change if for a long time because of that. Now with Pitch Wars starting, it felt like the right time, so I changed it. Now my new handle on both twitter and instagram is @nbeewrites! Sorry for any confusion this may have caused! I made an extra account on Twitter with my old handle to redirect anyone still looking for me on that one

~ I Beta-read 3 books this month too and I loved all of them! Especially a certain blogger’s Beauty & The Beast retelling. SO SO SO GOOD YOU GUYS.

~ Might seem unimportant, but I got a new cell-phone from my mom for my B-day! Hurraaaah! It’s a gorgeous Samsung Galaxy J3 and the quality of the pictures is delicious. As you’ll notice in my next point.

~ I celebrated my birthday last week! On the 31st I turned 26 and honestly, I feel a bit different. But not really. Anyways, I went to the beach the day before with my mom & dad. The weather was quite perfect for a day at the beach! I had mussels, which is kind of the one food you HAVE to eat when you go to the beach here and I made a new friend! He’s a seagull and his name is Francis. I made pictures, so here you go:

~ Comic Con happened and with it came a whole lot of fabulous trailers. Here are my favorites linked for your convenience: Wonder WomanJustice LeagueKong: Skull IslandFantastic Beasts & Where to Find ThemSuicide SquadDoctor StrangeLego Batman

Youtube Spotlight

I have 3 vids to spotlight this month because reasons. So let’s go over them, shall we?

~ Kid Zr0 is an Aussie band and I loooove what these guys are putting out on Youtube guys. They’re AWESOME and you should check them out because of that.

~ Okay, so I watch this guy on Youtube all the time and I adore him. Last week he uploaded a video where some guys songified some of his videos and this was the result. This song is so damn catchy, it’s still stuck in my head. Check it out!

– Okay so you guys might know I’m a huge fan of the Disney movie Hunchback of Notre Dame. Their songs are SOOOOO good. So when I saw these two guys do their cover of Bells of Notre Dame, I watched it immediately and it’s AWESOME. Jonathan Young & Caleb Hyles do a kickass metal cover of this fantastic song. Give it a listen:

That’s it for now! What’s up with you this week?

    I haven’t heard of Pitch Wars, but I wish you luck. So your 26, your actually a little younger than I am. Your hair is a lighter shade of brown than mine is. I liked this Aussie band.

      Pitch Wars is a sort of contest. 🙂 You can submit your manuscript to mentors (authors & editors & such) who then help you work on your MS for two months and then it gets pitched to agents on twitter. 🙂
