Question For You: What To Write?

 
 Today, I actually have a question for you.
   I know, it's a bit odd.
   The thing is, though I love writing blog posts, I've been struggling with what I should write. So I decided, "why not ask the people who are reading them?" Makes sense, right?
   I've got a few subjects that I could write about, and I really want you to tell me the truth about what you enjoy reading most, and what you would enjoy seeing (whether I've written things like that before or not). Don't just read it and brush it off - give me your input!
   Okay, here goes. I could write about . . .

   1) My Books

   This is probably one of my favorites to write about, because it's what I'm the most passionate about (second to God, of course). This includes things like my Character Guest Posts, and anything else I happen to come up with. If you want things like this, give me specifics! Do you want to know about characters? Setting? Word count? Story line?

   2) My Writing Process

   This is a bit different than my books themselves. This would be things like how I plan, come up with ideas for my stories, inspiration, etc.

   3) What I'm Planning to Do With My Writing

   A lot of people write for fun, but for me I write differently. I write because I want to go into that as a career. I could talk about the processes I'm going through, recent things I've researched about writing, etc.

   4) MK Life

   What it's like to live overseas! This is a bit tougher to write about because it's actually not that different from any normal person's life. But I could still try, giving you updates and such on strange things that I've seen lately, restaurants I like to go to, different Thai traditions, etc.

   5) Favorite Reads

   I am a reader. I could suggest books that I've enjoyed, or a few favorite authors of mine.

   6) What I've Been Up To

   This would by far be the most boring thing to post about, as I'm not the most interesting person. But I'm sure I could figure something out - like actually getting out of the house and doing something so I have things to report ;)

   7) Short Stories

   I've never been one to write that many short stories, but I have written a few. If that's something people would actually enjoy reading, I wouldn't mind sharing a few! 

   8) Memories


   I mean, I do actually have memories. A lot of 'em. 


   So here's what we're going to do. I want you to honestly answer which you would prefer hearing about. If you have more than one, that's totally fine! Tell me in the comments or on my Facebook page Julia Witmer, Author. Don't be shy - I need your help!
   If there's something I haven't mentioned that you'd like to hear about, tell me, and include specifics!

         What would you like to hear about?

Things I've Learned from Watching My Mom and Dad

I've learned a lot from watching my Mom and Dad's marriage. It's led me to know what I want to look for in a marriage, eventually, when I'm older, if I ever DO get married. Their marriage helps me know what a marriage is really about, and I couldn't thank them more for that.

You see, a lot of girls my age dream about marrying the perfect guy. Living in the perfect house. Having a lot of money and clothes and having a happy family and good, stable jobs. I'm not saying that that's a bad thing, but I think it's a bit unrealistic. It's not impossible, I suppose (other than the perfect guy, thing. Nobody's perfect! *Hannah Montana song now stuck in my head forever*), but in order to have all those things, you need to have a few others.

So, here's what I want for my future, if I ever get married.

Jesus. Not every marriage has Jesus, and a lot of them do okay without Him. But it's a lot harder, I think. Without Jesus, who do you have as your role …

Girl Talk: Makeup

I recently got my first tube of lipstick. I was very excited, as I see makeup the same was as I see colored pencils - it's nowhere close to easy, but the process is enjoyable and fun, and it usually turns out pretty in the end (unless I totally mess up and have to start all over). The lipstick I got is a brighter color than I thought it was going to be, but I like it all the same.


My little sister doesn't seem too thrilled with the development. Jokingly, she calls it red (although I am CONVINCED it's just a bright/deep pink), and says things like "oh, you don't need it! Why are you wearing it?!" 

Since all of her comments are in jest, I take no offense at them. I play along and I laugh, and I pretend to defend myself as if I really care. But the more she does it, the more I realize that girls have to face this in real life all the time.

People tell you things like "that color's not good on you" or " way too much makeup there, hon." If you…

Book Review: To Kill a Mockingbird

Book: To Kill a Mockingbird
Author: Harper Lee

I recently read To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee for school and I decided to do a book review on it. So here's a quick description of the story, in case you haven't heard much about it:

 Living in a small town called Maycomb and experiencing the fun of summer and the sufferings of school, a young girl named Scout Finch watches her father Atticus Finch, an attorney, risking everything - his job, reputation and even his life - to prove the innocence of Tom Robinson, a black man accused of a crime he didn't commit. 


The characters - Atticus Finch, Scout Finch, Jem Finch and Calpurnia, as well as others - were well-rounded and had a sense of reality to them that I know as a writer I struggle to create. They spoke, acted and thought like one would think them to, but not in an overdone or annoying way.

I loved the perspective on the story that it had. Written in light of the events of the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s, it has an …
