About The Bean Who Runs This Thing!

Greetings, my beans! The name’s Penny Wood!

^^Also, I do not know that lovely family taking a picture behind me. I’m sure they’re wonderful, though.

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.

My dignified dog, Buddy

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:

  1. Star Wars
  2. Pizza
  3. Keeper Of The Lost Cities by Shannon Messenger
  4. Jane Austen
  5. Drawing
  6. Memes
  7. Mr. Darcy
  8. 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.)

  1. People look at me funny and tell me that I can’t laugh out loud while I read books, but that way people can’t tell I’m reading…ish. I have a reading problem.

    1. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Well, I DEFINITELY think it’s a good thing if you’re laughing out loud while you’re reading. Cuz that means it is one awesome book!!!
      And I have the worst problem reading. Once I almost started crying in a dentist office cuz I was reading Wonder πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚β€πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­

      1. That is what I’ll tell them next time! Apparently I should chuckle softly or smile gently, but then people don’t ask, and then I can’t recommend it!
        Wonder is a sad but amazing book!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Summer was my favorite character.

  3. Oh my goodness, whyyy did I not discover your blog sooner?? I love your posts; they are hilarious with all the perfect gifs and *gasps* YOU LOVE STAR WARS. I’m fairly new to the fandom and I’m just now watching the prequels, but… I love all the original episodes (I refuse to watch any of the new ones).

      STAR. WARS. I love it to no end.
      AND PREQUELS!! AGAKAJHAYAV!!! Prequels are life. I love everyone in the prequels. (Except Jar Jar Binks. Wasn’t crazy about that dude.) Padme also rocks.
      Well, I wouldn’t be too sure about that! The Force Awakens is a work of art.
      And YES. LUKE. I love Luke. He is a bean child cinnamon roll who must be protected at all costs.
      And aww! Thank you!!! Followed you as well!!!! πŸ˜„πŸ˜„β€β€

  4. Greetings, my fellow human bean. You seem super fun!!
    Also, if you’re not going to college, do you have any career options in mind? Because usually it’s easier to make a living with a degree, but of course some awesome people have done awesome things without a degree so (trails away because she doesn’t have a finish for this sentence)
    SO.

    1. Hey there, bean! Thank ya!!!
      Well, I’m planning to be a writer! Seeing as that doesn’t REQUIRE me to have a degree, I see no point in getting one if I don’t need it! I’d love to be a mom and a wife too, but first I’d have to find a guy. And there have been none yet XD
      SO.

  6. Hey Penny! I love your blog. I just love it so much. You’re so fun to read. I loved your Toy Story 4 review, too. I totally agree with your ideas about the ending. The ending was kinda dissatisfying, to be honest. But YES. DUCKY AND BUNNY. Can I just start fangirling over THE PLUSHRUSH?? Oh my gosh I was dying for like ten minutes on the floor. That was the best. Anyways, loved reading your blog – Jesus girls ROCK! Woot woot *fistbump*!! Love reading your stuff and meeting another kindred spirit obsessed with writing and story telling and fangirling. So glad to be reading your blog!
    Cheers!

  9. Hi Penny, I thought I would let you know that I posted a comment. I don’t know if you saw it.
    But, I just thought I would tell you (since I know you get a lot of comments and it is easy to lose one in the midst of the many)
