Greetings, my beans! The name’s Penny Wood!
I’m a Christian, writer, blogger, film fan, book dragon, amateur artist, theme park enthusiast, and all around crusty bean. When I was 5 years old, my dream job was to be a cashier at MacDonald’s. But when that didn’t work out, I decided to be a writer instead.
I love writing. Stories swirl around in my head all day long and I dream about them at night. My love for storytelling has bled over to my interest in character design, film, and novels. I’ve studied storytelling and that’s affected the way I consume media.
That’s why I now blog about the stories I love (and even the ones I don’t) and explain why I think they work or don’t work. Talking about character arcs and growth. Worldbuilding and plotting. Prose and dialogue.
Storytelling is a huge passion of mine, I suspect if you’re here it’s probably yours too. So stick around and tell me YOUR thoughts on storytelling and your favorite stories!
Some of my favorite things:
- Star Wars
- Keeper Of The Lost Cities by Shannon Messenger
- Jane Austen
- Mr. Darcy
- My Beans (my followers, YOU)
So drop down below and say hi or shoot me a message via my contact page. I’m always ready to meet a new bean! Keep writing, y’all!
(NOTE: My book/film/TV reviews do NOT include negative content warnings. I do not mention/review content in my blog posts and reviews. If you are curious about a certain book or movie or TV show, you can message me privately and I’ll be happy to tell you about it to the best of my ability.)
