Book Review: Enchanted Tiki Room #1-5
Disney Kingdoms Enchanted Tiki Room Comic Book Series Issues 1-5
If you’re a Disnerd like I am, you’ve probably heard of Disney Kingdoms. Put out by Marvel, now owned by Disney, the Disney Kingdoms series of comics puts new spins on classic Disney attractions such as The Haunted Mansion; Big Thunder Mountain Railroad; Figment (part of the Journey into Imagination attraction at EPCOT Center in Orlando Florida) and the newest installment, Enchanted Tiki Room.
While I haven’t read the other Disney Kingdoms series, and thus can’t compare how Tiki differs, it was fun reading this five issue comic series. 
The Enchanted Tiki Room comic takes place on a desert island and combines a parody of the TV Show Fantasy Island with Disney heart and humor. The tiki gods and birds you know and love from the attraction are here, as well as several new characters:
Agnes and her dog Alfred, who are having relationship problems
Wally, a recently single guy looking to find himsel

Book Review: Writing Down the Bones
Because of my major in Journalism--with an emphasis in creative writing--I've read a lot of writing books over the years. Most are rote: good grammar, punctuation rules, climax, denouement, how to write characters, scenes, setting, tension, how to write in third person point of view, etc.
Writing Down the Bones: Freeing the Writer Within, by Natalie Goldberg, is none of these things.
Goldberg gives a refreshing and inspiring take on writing, mixing practical common sense advice with Zen practices.
One of my favorite sections of the book is called Writing as a Practice. Every write has heard this maxim: write every day. Make it a habit. Don't wait for inspiration to come to you.
Goldberg does the same thing, but makes it less rote and more inspiring. She compares writing everyday to a runner who runs everyday. You're training a muscle. Your practicing everyday to get better and increase your stamina..
This is just one section from the book. Pick it up today and give it a read. I guarant

Hi there! I'm CarolinesEcho and this is my first time using DeviantART.

While I don't consider myself an artist by any means (given the fact that I can't draw), I do enjoy writing and photography. Although I don't do photography as much.

At this point, photography is definitely a hobby for me and while writing is too (especially writing fanfiction), I would love to get at least one piece of writing published in my life, just so I can say I did it if nothing else.

What you will get from me at this point is most likely original stories/poems, some fanfics (which may or may not have already been uploaded to my fanfiction.net account) and on occasion some photos, if I think they're any good. And on very rare occasions, some digital art as well. It may not be very good, but I do like fooling around with Microsoft paint and powerpoint every once in a while.

So onward and upward I guess.

Now that I've finished Self Discovery, what should I do next? (I may not get to either of these anytime soon, but at least it'll give me a starting point).
