My Future Dream Writing Office & Some Very Important Updates

Hello, everybody!

Recently, I have received a lot of comments asking if I’ve deleted my blog. This time around with changing my URL, there has been a lot of confusion, so I’d like to try and clear that up

  1. I haven’t deleted Liv Dreams. April Dreams is the same blog, except with a different name and URL.
  2. April Dreams is still under construction. However, one thing that will never be changing again is the URL.
  3. I am switching to my author name. It is April McLauren. I explain more here.
  4. I am trying to “rebrand” my blog. That means my images will have a certain quality about them that is consistent. What that quality is, I’m not sure yet, but I think it will have something to do with stars.
  5. I have a new header! *claps* I would appreciate it if you;d check it out!
  6. The school year is almost upon me (2 1/2 more weeks,) and that brings me to my next point!
  7. New School Year Posting Schedule! Yay!
  8. *throws confetti*

Here is the link:

Being A Writer

Hello, everyone!

This is just a quick little thing I was thinking about.

I was reading a blog post, and it said it contained book spoilers. So I went to work on my WorldBuilding board instead. (More about that in another post.)

I started writing down some stuff that would need to be built upon at the end of the story. Then I started thinking about that blog post again. I really wanted to read the character study, but it spoiled the ending. Then I started thinking about any spoilers that might’ve been in MY blog post. (Thankfully, there were none 😀 ) But…
