Writing (& Beautiful People)

I haven’t been posting these because I feel like it won’t make sense to anyone else, but as far as writing goes, I’m at 3553 words. I have been spending lots of time building up my characters because characters are so important to me. I keep a notebook where I have pictures all cut out and different things about the characters so that I know exactly how I want them to look, motivations, etc.

Rereading Books

I have been going through my books I own or remember loving and am trying to reread all of them. I hope to start rereading the Among the Hidden series by Margaret Peterson Haddix (It was my favorite in 5th grade).

House Crisis

whatt

I have always been a Gryffindor, or second a Ravenclaw, but I just took the new pottermore quiz (twice to make sure) and got Hufflepuff both times. What is this? I’m not upset, just very confused. I feel like I don’t even know who I am anymore. (haha this rant was only slightly a joke… I honestly have no idea how I got Hufflepuff, but I shall embrace it (somewhat)).

Who else is a Hufflepuff? What house are you in? Did you experience a house crisis too?

  1. I’m almost afraid to take the pottermore test haha. I know what house I want to be in (Slytherin) but I have a feeling that I’ll get sorted into somewhere like Hufflepuff.
    I need to make myself start a classic challenge, I always want to read them, but I never get around to actually reading them!

    • Right? I feel like I am a Gryffinclaw at heart. Idk what to think… I don’t really want to embrace it because I don’t feel like it is right… Nice! I got Gryffindor almost every time before the new test (and when I didn’t I got Ravenclaw, but on Pottermore I got Gryffindor).
