And more books.
So I was watching YouTube videos the other day because I was looking for something. I follow the Super Carlin Brothers; they do a lot of Disney and Harry Potter videos. One of the videos Jay did was in defense of Slytherin, which if I haven’t said it before, is my Hogwarts House.
YouTube recommended a video by A Clockwork Reader with five book recommendations with Slytherin characters. She kept talking about BookTube. I watched a few of her videos and wanted to find out more about BookTube and maybe even becoming one.
Yesterday, I started doing research on how to do a BookTube Channel and have been looking at other people’s BookTube channels. So far, it’s been Emmmabooks, Little Book Owl, Peter Likes Books, PeruseProject, and ProblemsofaBookNerd. I don’t know where to start but there were SO MANY books!
Speaking of books…
I’m still on the fence about which story I really need to focus on. There’s no real reason for being on the fence and there’s really no reason for me not writing, outside of I have little to no motivation. I started writing a travel story and I may switch up to making it a short story and moving past writing it. There’s a beginning, a direction, and an ending. Like other stories of mine, there is research involved and I keep making excuses to not write the story. Procrastination is the name of my game right now. I know I’m terrible.
Music has been pulling me in different directions too. “Mad World” has me going in the direction of office worker looking for a way out. “Monochromatic” by Mary Lambert had be thinking about an old story I had started about what at the time, was going to be a guy that was subdued in growing up. He grows up in a house void of color, but there’s a girl who is bright but is sent away before his world go gray. Listening to that song made me realize a few things about that story that makes me want to go back, change a few things, and finish it, even if it’s just a novella.
Anyways, hope you all have a great weekend. We’re headed to Pride this weekend.
Reading: I’m in-between books right now but starting the Saga Series as soon as I get home tonight.
