Hello all and welcome to another I Want to Know Wednesday!

Last night, I finished an incredible book called Illuminae by Amie Kaufman. Because of the high intensity of the overall plot, I'd sworn to myself I would only read during the day. Adrenaline rushes are not conducive to sleep after all and as an eternal sufferer of insomnia, I don't need anything else to keep me awake. However, around 8 o'clock, the protagonists' dire situation dragged me straight back to its pages and a few hours later, I'd finished.

Needless to say, I was then forced to watch some cartoons and read some less intense words in order to calm down and get to sleep. Kaufman knows how to raise stakes. Without giving too much away, I was thoroughly con...

Welcome once again Wednesday Warriors!

My family is a bunch of quoters. Whether it's words from a song, book, or movie, any one of us can begin a certain line or lyric and the rest will finish in a sort of bizarre call and response.

Whenever anybody in the family says "No problem" someone else is bound to say "No problem at all." (Imagine that in Pratt's voice and this is hilarious intonation.)

So what about you? Do you have a favorite quote from a book, movie, tv show, or song?

If you have a second, I'd love to know!

Welcome!

Here at The Pensive Pen, I blog about writing, querying, and self-publishing my first paranormal academy series. Sometimes I might share about struggling with anxiety and insomnia, and I'll always ask questions to discover something very important to me: getting to know YOU! If you're a writer, reader, or someone trying to figure out what community looks like online, this place is for you!
