Book Thoughts: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone | The End

"HAVE YOU GONE MAD?" Ron bellowed. "ARE YOU A WITCH OR NOT?" Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, Page 278 And so the magic continues. My very first thought was, "What a short, sweet book." It really was such a short and simple little book about a boy who gets the most unexpected surprise of… Continue reading Book Thoughts: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone | The End

A Fantasy Realm Tale: The Final Quest – Behind the Scenes Part II

With the end of The Fantasy Realm, it is now time to lift the curtain and reveal what goes on backstage. The production of each show was fairly similar.

A Fantasy Realm Tale: The Final Quest – Behind the Scenes Part I

On Wednesday, January 23, the first episode of The Fantasy Realm aired, and it was titled, "The First Quest." It seems only fitting that it ends with "The Final Quest." The final episode really centers around two main ideas: the human imagination and the end of a hero's journey. I started thinking about the final… Continue reading A Fantasy Realm Tale: The Final Quest – Behind the Scenes Part I

Book Thoughts: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone | The First 100 Pages

"Ah, go boil yer heads, both of yeh," said Hagrid. "Harry—yer a wizard." Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, Page 50 And so the magic begins. Reading-wise, I had completely forgotten that it was a children's book. After living the adventure through the screen, my mind has latched onto the last part of the story… Continue reading Book Thoughts: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone | The First 100 Pages

Voice Descriptors for your Characters

When writing, I often find myself using the same basic descriptive words when talking about someone's voice. I'll often say it's high-pitched or it's husky or it's soft-spoken, but that's as far as my list goes. It can really help your writing when you have a variety of descriptive words to use, particularly when it… Continue reading Voice Descriptors for your Characters

Book Thoughts: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone | Before Reading

In 2017, I had a blog on which I basically did what I do on this blog. I have rebranded since then. On that old blog, "Book Thoughts" was known as "Written Wandering," and I wrote about my experience reading through the Harry Potter series for the very first time. When I deleted that old… Continue reading Book Thoughts: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone | Before Reading
