Introducing the Emmie Awards!

So, last night I got the awesomest idea ever:

The Emmie Awards!

That’s right, our very own awards show! (Kind of.)

Like the Emmy Awards, the “Emmies” works like this: You guys nominate blogs for each category in the comments, and then we all vote! The voting will take place on December 16 through 25. That gives you exactly eight days to nominate as many blogs as you can! The winners will be announced December 31, 2017, at 11:45 AM Central Time. The winners will be notified on December 26, so they can prepare their “acceptance speech”, which will be emailed through the Contact Form.

Here’s the categories you can nominate blogs for! (Not your own!)

2

For the Best Doll Blog Award, you can nominate any doll blog that you think is spectacular! (Not mine or your own, of course!:) )

3

The Best Book Blog Award goes to a book blog with awesome posts and great book reviews!

The Best Lifestyle Blog Award goes to a lifestyle blog with quality posts, fabulous featured images, and more!

5

An ode to my retainer

You give me terrible sores

And you make it hard to eat

I would much rather

Have a cast on my feet!

Sure, you’re sparkly and blue

But I really hate you!

“What’s that blue thing in your mouth?” 

Is what people always say

And I just hope with all of my heart

That I’ll be retainer-free someday!

Sorry for a weird/random post. My retainer is making a terrible sore on my upper lip and it rEaLlY hUrTs. I’ll post a photostory on Saturday!

look who’s back! // nano summary, monthly recap-style goals, and a whole lot more

Look who’s back!

Hello people and dolls of the earth! After 1 month of a hiatus, I am finally…back! NaNoWriMo was super awesome, and I got to gain some writing experience, make some awesome friends (ok, they were all moderators who I emailed about bug reports, but they still count.), and I may have actually….won?

This is a picture I took while I was outlining using this fabulous tutorial by Samantha.

Despite how much fun NaNoWriMo was, I missed you guys a lot! Its great to be back and I can’t wait for all that’s coming up in December.

NaNo-2017-Winner-Facebook-Cover.png
DISCLAIMER: In NO WAY I am trying to brag about winning AT ALL!

From my second NaNoWriMo and my first win, I learned a ton of new things about writing. I learned how to keep on top of your goals, create awesome characters, script witty dialogue, and throw in an evil, good-for-nothing antagonist. I spent half of my time procrastinating by reading posts on Madi Grace (who just recently changed her tagline: no more identity crisis for MG!), comics on NaNoToons, (my personal favorite: https://nanotoons.net/2017/11/26/2017-november-26th/), and reading all of your fabulous NaNoWriMo self-help posts. It was really difficult at times, but I was able to push through! (after a lot of pizza and chocolate though. Note how sad it is that that doesn’t include marshmallows. *sobs*)

IMG_1687.JPG
Me smack in the middle of writer’s block. ^

But december is going to be filled with some awesome things! A Christmas collab with Enni, for instance, (Enni, sorry I haven’t been e-mailing you about it! I have to get my dad to get me back in to my account…) and we have a fabulous new Christmas site design! Check out the site if you’re reading this in the reader to check it out!

Aaaaannnddd…the goals + events! (Since there was no November goals, I’m not going to be recapping those.)

  • Post every other day on AGW, and the other days on TRW! (Felicity will be posting once a week)
  • Memorize some Bible verses

That’s it!

Check out the new look @ https_pheonixamericangirlworld.wordpress.com.png

Waiiiit….you didn’t think I’d let you leave without snippets, did you? XD I feel like I stole that line from Madi

The Huntress Book I_ The Fallen.png

Snippet No. 1

Aspen’s POV

{From chapter 1}

“I’ll be back next summer.”

Those are the words that Aaron would whisper in my ear, right before he left to go back to Huntrex Academy, where he was learning to become a Hunter and join the Hunt.

I cherished the summertime, as a child. I would spend my days playing with him, stargazing with him. It was the time that I could spend with my favorite person in the world: my big brother. 

But one year he couldn’t keep that promise.

I remember the day it happened. The day we got the news. Those memories I tried to forget, but they haunt me. I can’t dream without it turning in to that scene. It makes me shudder to think about. 

But I’ll tell you. Just this once.

I was nine. That’s the one cold-hard fact. The complete truth. The rest is a haze. I’m not really sure what happened, but my nightmares and visions remind me if it constantly. 

I was just in my bedroom. Minding my own business. I wasn’t going anything but lying on my bed and missing Aaron when I heard a cry.

Hopping off my bed, I ran down the hall, towards the cry. The sound is a ghost of the past coming back to haunt me every waking–and sleeping–moment. I saw Mother crouched on the floor. 

“I lost Jacob. I can’t lose you too.”

At the sound of my father’s name, I questioned, “Lost who?” My dad was long dead, but Mother always talked about him fondly. Sometimes I feel as if I actually knew him, she described him so clearly. I can’t really miss him, though. I didn’t really know him.

Silently sobbing, Mother handed me a letter. With a black seal. I shrieked. That could only mean one thing.

Death. 

Shaking, I cut the black wax with a knife I found lying on the kitchen table. I unfolded the parchment. 

Dear Mrs. Wither,

We are terribly sorry to inform you that last night, something terrible occurred. Aaron Maximus Wither, Third Year, Level Three, is–

I couldn’t bear to read any longer.  A wail, worse than Mother’s, erupted from my lips. I dropped the letter in shock. 

No. 

No.

He can’t be.

The funeral I hardly remember. All I remember is some official–looking person from Huntrex carrying a casket–carrying Aaron–in to the woods where Aaron and I had played often. I had suggested that spot. Those were the only two words I spoke between his death and the funeral. Then he said words, and now somehow I have a scar. It’s on my left cheek, a huge slash that I have no idea what was from. All I know is I’m a scarred girl–both on the inside and out.

I don’t want to talk about it anymore.

People say I’m crazy. People say I’m delusional. I’ve been taken to so may doctors who have labeled me as “a chord away from insane.” People look down upon me, me with my “mental problems”. They say I need to let go. I need to forget. He’s gone. Forever. And there’s no way to bring him back. 

Or was there?

Snippet No. 2

Marc’s POV

Where is that name from? The question makes my head hurt. The name seems so familiar, but I just can’t remember why. The first name is a ghost of a memory, a small trace of a forgotten event that occurred long ago that clung on to my memory, but the last name is so familiar it’s intimidating. Wither, Wither, Wither, I chant silently to myself, tuning out Twilight’s lecturing. Wither, Wither, Wither. One small word can cause a lot of trouble. 

“Marc? Marc? Hellllooooo?” 

“Oh, sorry,” I say, snapping to attention. “What were you saying?”

“I was saying,” Twilight emphasizes the word mockingly, “that I wanted to know some of your strategies for getting students to pay attention. Very ironic, huh, Marc?” I blush. 

“Well,” I struggle to come up with a good answer. I haven’t taught anything before. “I try to make sure the students know that there will be consequences if they don’t behave, and quiz them constantly so you know their progress and how much they have been paying attention to.”

“Very good,” Twilight nods approvingly. “I should imply those to the meetings, yes?” Everyone laughs. I stare down at the desk, embarrassed. I make a mental note to pay very close attention from now on. Soon, the “staff training session & meeting” is over. Everyone rushes out of the conference room, probably to begin setting up their classrooms before the term starts. 

But just as I am about to leave, I hear Twilight call, “Wait.”

I turn around, nervous. Was he going to fire me for not paying attention?

“Yes, sir?” I squeak nervously. I fiddle with the cuff of my sleeve, a habit I do when I’m nervous. 

“You have potential,” he says. I relax a bit. “I can tell you are going to be a very good teacher.”

“Thank you?” I reply, unsure why he would pull me over just to compliment me. 

“But,” I knew there was a catch. “I think that you aren’t aware of the dangers that lay ahead. You’re one of the few teachers who hasn’t served in the Huntrex, and the only one who hasn’t attended this school their self. The Order could bomb this place and wipe out hundreds of our soldiers-in-training, plus the entire future of the Huntrex. I repeat what I said earlier–you CANNOT let down your guard. Ever.”

“Yes, sir.” I nod. He was freaking me out. 

He sits back down in his chair, paying to attention to me anymore. Evidently, this little talk is over. 

And last but not least, snippet No. 3!

Aspen’s POV

I take my sword out, pointing it towards the shadow. No. It can’t be. He was dead long ago. 

“Who are you?” I ask the shadow. “Show yourself.”

“I’m afraid I can’t do that, dear,” the voice says in a haughty, mocking tone, a tone I know Aaron would never use, ever.  

Then, everything starts to swirl around me. Reality is a hazy infinity, with no designated beginning or end. I feel like a strong hand is pushing against my lungs and squeezing my throat tight. I gasp for air, begging for this moment to be over…

Then everything went dark. 

Thank you so much for reading, marshmallow! Merry Christmas! Wait is it too early to ssatrt saying that

Most Writerly,

Emmie

P.S. Hopefully I’ll be posting a more in-depth NaNo recap on TRW tomorow!

Z the Tree Hugger…Literally | A Photoshoot

Hello, marshmallows!

Today I took Z outside for a photoshoot! She’s going to guest star in Forever, so that’s when she’ll be coming to the doll family on the blog, if you were wondering. So…I guess I’ll let Z take over!

IMG_1538.JPG

Hello! I’m Ziana, but everybody calls me Z. (Emmie: In her books her real name is Susie, but I decided that Ziana fitted her better.) 

IMG_1539

I decided to take a break from working on an AGSM (the Horrible Homework Hacker! If Emmie will let me I’ll show it to you guys!) and go climb some trees! Emmien wanted to do a photoshoot with me, and I agreed. But, I shall ruin it by not looking at the camera! Mwhahaha!

IMG_1540.JPG

Ok, Emmie, I know you’re all ‘Super-Artistic-Photos’ but this photoshoot was supposed to be of me??

IMG_1541.JPG

“What was that?”

IMG_1542.JPG

“It’s…it’s…a tree with better lighting!”

Oh so interesting am I right.

IMG_1543.JPG

AHH I’M ON FIRE!!!

Jk, that’s just the sun.

IMG_1544.JPG

I SHALL NEVER LOOK AT THE CAMERA. This rock is my evil sidekick and together we shall conquer the blogosphere, one horrible photo at a time. *pats rock sidekick*

Hello up there.

WE HIT OVER 50 FOLLOWERS???!!!!!!! | A MEGA Q&A

Marshmallows.

WE HIT 50 FOLLOWERS.

WE HIT 50 FOLLOWERS?

WE HIT 50 FOLLOWERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

tenor

This is so, so crazy.

50 PEOPLE decided that AGW was good enough to click that little button–the button that can change a blogger’s life. YOU are the reason why American Girls continue to Rule the World–you aren’t just another follower on another blog. You’re part of a community! A community that celebrates YOU and dolls–our little actresses that we can name, create personalities for, and write countless photo stories and stories about. YOU are part of the American Girl World family.

And as a celebration of this, I bring you….

A MEGA Q AND A!

That’s right–our very first Q and A! You can ask me or my dolls (Jade, Izzy, Felicity, Lexi, Maryellen, or Z) as many questions as you want! The Q & A closes on October 21. That gives you one week to answer your questions.

If you’re an AGW follower, than A GAZILLION  MARSHMALLOWS TO YOU. Since I’m nice here’s a badge:

ARE YOU GOING TO ENTER THE Q&A?

Z’s Media Kit REVEIW

Hello everyone! Welcome to American Girl World! Today I’ll be reviewing the Z’s Media Kit from American Girl! This is ironic, because I am taking pictures of a photography studio in my new photography studio! XDD

You can see Victoria and Emily up there!

The front of the box has an image of the product with Z standing next to it, the Z Yang Collection logo-thingy, and some camera illustrations that look like they were done on a chalkboard. The back of the box says: Ready, Set, Record! Z’s Set features a working studio light, functioning clapboard, a megaphone, booklet, award, tote bag, and a reversible screen featuring a Seattle scene.

aw

It was fairly easy to assemble. The instructions were very detailed, “Short stick + long stick”. Thanks, AG.

Here’s it all put together! The screen is a really good quality fabric, though it comes folded so you might want to iron it. The scene is really cute! The studio light requires 2 AAA batteries. I am a bit upset they only included one studio light, as one light creates a lot of shadows and you should usually use two or three lights.

The reverse side is a green screen. The only problem about this is you would need editing software to make it work in your videos.

It also came with a megaphone, a booklet, and a “Z. Awards” trophy.

View of the booklet.

Even in the book it says to use two or three lights.

And of course, Z has her clapboard!

***NOT SHOWN: Purple tote bag

Overall, I really liked this Set! I don’t think that it is worth $60 though, Maybe more around $45. The only thing I would really change is having two studio lights, but other than that the set is adorable! I 1000000000% recommend this set and I am really excited to see the Doll blogging community use this!

Thanks for reading!

(I’m on a mobile device so I don’t have access to my signature 😦 )

Lexi’s Birthday! I got Lexi for my 7th birthday so we are twins! *Poses* *Drops Lexi because self is trying to write post* *Knows self should pick her up* *Continues typing*

DOLLAWEEN DUH. This is the first time I will be able to do dollaween with my dolls–I didn’t have this blog at halloween last year! I have most of the costumes done–Izzy will be a princess, Lissie a cowgirl, Alexandra a Forest Nymph, Jade a zombie ballerina, and Maryellen will be a Wizard, and Z will–wait, who’s Z? I only have five dolls! Not 6! Totally not getting another for my birthday! Heh! Heh! Heh… *Runs*

I randomly made up this tag… so now I am forcing you tagging you guys so yeah um I’m bad at this introduction stuff so can we just post the rules??

RULES:

  • You must display the Old Posts Tag Image:

rsvp

  • You read 5 old posts, (e.x. your first post, your fourth post, and your fifth post)
  • Make sure to link to those posts!
  • Comment on those posts and display it in your post! Ok this is confusing
  • Tag 5 other people (Make sure they have over 20 posts!)
  • I was going to say to have fun but that’s so cliché it’s ridiculous.

My comment:

WOW I really overdid the chrome setting on Izzy’s pic. but otherwise this was actually short of decent?? Maryellen’s bio DOES. NOT. FIT her personality tho. Science?? Seriously? #OldPostsTag

Also when I was looking through my media I saw this:

A Schedule + Just Making It Clear

In Our Survey, you guys have been suggesting things like schedules*. So I decided to finally post this!

  • Saturday: Photoshoots/Photostories
  • Wednesday: Tags/Awards/Games
  • Thursday: DIYS/Vlogs/Stopmotions

I am #Rebellious and I will probably not stick to this schedule but it’s worth a shot XD

*Schedules will be ignored in case of Monthly Goals and birthday posts.

Hi guys! Lissie here. So there has been a little confusion about NTTM. And I didn’t really make it clear about the rules and stuff.

  • We post a picture of a truly me doll (Photo owned by AG!)
  • You guys comment with what you think would be a good name for that particular doll. (Which Emmie will not be GETTING)
  • We pick two of our favorite names (e.g. Paris and Elise) and we put them in to a poll on Playbuzz. 
  • You guys all vote on who you think the winner should be. 
  • The winner is announced along with the next NTTM and it starts all over again!

Note: THE POLL CLOSES ON AUGUST 31rst, 2017, 1:00 PM Central Time. The winner will be announced on September 1rst on our annual Monthly Goals post.
