Monday Inspiration

"These are the times that try men’s souls: The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of his country; but he that stands it Now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict the more glorious the triumph." – Thomas Paine {all images via pinterest. clockwise, from top left: 1 : 2 : 3 : 4}

NaNo Progress

Posted on: November 8th, 2013 by Hannah Beasley 6 Comments

I actually wasn’t planning on doing NaNo this year. I figured after three years it would be okay for me to take a break – besides, I had so much work to get done that I didn’t think I could even fit it in. But at the last minute I decided to do it anyway, because that writing bug bit me, just like it does every October. So I started a week ago, but was still worried that I would end up dropping out due to my schedule. The crazy thing, though, is that I think my schedule – which…

Handmade : Client Mood Board

Posted on: November 6th, 2013 by Hannah Beasley 2 Comments

I created this mood board for a special project – my sister Maria is starting her own online business, and we’re in the middle of creating everything she’ll need. A website, blog, social media graphics, possibly business cards…the whole shoot ‘n match. There is something completely different about working with someone who’s closely related to you. There’s no, “oh, I’ll work on this for the next three days and then send you the mockup, and you can get back to me and give me your thoughts.” Nope, when it’s your sister she’s constantly over your shoulder, telling you exactly what…

So I’m still getting used to this wider posting area…I’d been wanting to widen it up/simplify my design for a while so that my content would be more of the focus, but I knew that doing that would mean adjusting everything, including Monday Inspiration posts. I just decided to go ahead and do it, though, because I think it’ll be worth it. I feel like graphics and photos are more striking when they’re presented in a wider format. So I’m thinking I’ll probably keep doing Monday Inspiration posts the same way I always have. What do you think? How do…

NaNoWriMo Days 1&2

Posted on: November 3rd, 2013 by Hannah Beasley 5 Comments

Yep, it still feels weird to post about writing on this blog. But a little weird is fine, right? I’m actually ahead in my word count – right now I’m at exactly 5,700, which I’m pretty sure is farther than I’ve ever gotten on the first and second days. Part of the reason I wanted to get ahead was because on Sundays I pretty much just want to sleep and watch movies after church. So tomorrow is taken care of! I’ve done way more outlining for this book than I’ve ever done for any of my writing. I took two…
