Happy Birthday, Aanya!!

Hey warriors! Today’s post is a little unique because it’s a birthday poem written by several other bloggers and I wrote for a special blogger! We may be a little late, but only because we wanted it to be as good as possible! Aanya is a ton of fun to talk to and she’s really sweet! Check out her blog here and give her a follow! Now… let’s dive in!

A snowy owl enters the room with an envelope in its beak,

A regal seal with Hogwarts name keeping the secrets within.

She picks up the envelope and lets out a joyful shriek,

“I’ve wondered for years, ‘when will my wizardly studies begin?’”

A wonderful present starts a wonderful day

Chock full of shopping for wands, books, and robes.

She readies herself without delay.

Her cheerful voice speaks, “I could explode!”

With a party and cake, shopping and gifts

It’s everything a girl could ever want

Aanya exclaims “This will be epic!”

She analyzes the letter from words to font

First comes a visit from family and friends

A party with cool  gifts and sweet notes

She hopes it won’t ever end

Then comes dessert; ice cream wins the vote

Next comes a visit to the wizarding world

To buy all the supplies for a Hogwarts year

And awe at the wands, cauldrons and bottles

She meets a few students who ease all fear.

She just can’t stop thinking and dreaming

Of this year she has ahead

The hopeful future has her beaming 

And I hope nothing can diminish this joy or make her upset.

This poem was primarily written by Anna, Liz, Rayna, Diamond, and I, though all the ZCC was behind the idea.

Happy belated birthday, Aanya! I hope you enjoy this year! We love you! – ZCC

Sketch Scribble Scribe

Hey sparkles! Welcome back to SSS! I know I’m late, but since I only had time for one more post before the end of summer (how?!), I wanted to share something a little more bookish for readers and writers alike! The best way to learn is to watch others do it and implement what you learn and these books not only charm readers but are absolutely brilliant to learn from as writers! Let’s dive in!

Note: All of these books are ones I chose from my own personal favorites. I can’t represent every writer or reader, but I can say that I read in nearly every genre and use content warnings for accessibility. I still recommend researching content warnings yourself before reading because I likely missed one or two. I also debated putting some books in multiple categories but selected these based on what I thought they did best…

Random Specific Thoughts

Creating hope through action” is the triennial theme for the World Suicide Prevention Day from 2021 – 2023. This theme is a reminder that there is an alternative to suicide and aims to inspire confidence and light in all of us.

By creating hope through action, we can signal to people experiencing suicidal thoughts that there is hope and that we care and want to support them. It also suggests that our actions, no matter how big or small, may provide hope to those who are struggling. Lastly, it highlights the importance of setting suicide prevention as a priority public health agenda by countries.

It is I.

I, who cause unspeakable pain and grief and whom you’d will out of existence in a heartbeat.

You never see me, my invisibility is what renders me so fatal. Maybe if you were to slow…
