  1. Fun video, I’m really interested in The Scribbler Box, I just completed my first outline for my future debut novel🤞and need to crank up the tension and the complications for my heroine. And Jenna always remember, it’s not that California lacks seasons it’s that the rest of the country lacks subtlety 😁

  2. How many times do I have to dislike the healthcare.gov ads before they actually stop playing them? The past two weeks I've disliked their videoes numerous times and have sat through close to 100 runs of the ad. Many times were back to back.

  3. I'm glad mine made it safely across the world. Thank you again Jenna for being such a great help and inspiration to so many of us! -Samantha Sims

  4. HOLY SHIT YOU GOT MY INKTOBER DRAWINGS! I was worried you would never get them because I had a bad experience with sending stuff to PO addresses . . . Stuff never make it -_-. I'm glad you got them and love them Jenna, enjoy 😀

  5. I had a shitty day (because my thyroid decided to behave like an a*hole) and you just made it better. Thank you, Jenna!

  6. Hey Jenna! Im not sitting on any stories, nothing is written so far, all of it is in my head and wants to crack it wide open. Never done something like this, while im commited to let it out. It will be a challenge, since English is not my native spoken language, but fuck those hurdles, im gonna manage it anyway.
    And now i wanna ask you a couple of things.
    How far may i go with vulgar language in dialogs, and if i can use them as a writer's voice in descriptions, etc. (Do i use sewer system, or its okay to go with shitpipe?)
    Can i create my own fantasy characters and use only them, or should i add some well known forms like fairies (mine would not be so fairy, but something dark and hideous).
    Im no romantic guy, but i wanna use some for the readers' sake. That said, i feel embarrassed when i have to describe my feelings or put romantic words on a piece of paper, let alone have people reading them.
    Please HELP, and sooner or later you will be unboxing my cracked head in a form of a fantastic fantasy series (because the plot will not be fit in one finished book), but i must pick your brain for advice first.
    Thanx! @

  7. After reading TSC, all I'm thinking about is TSS. Maybe that was Jenna's plan.

    Maybe we are all in the labyrinth, and the wait for TSS is our challenge. Good luck competitors.

  8. I have to wonder – how often is Clif nearby when you're doing these videos, and how often do you have to cut from him cracking up or making a remark or noise in the background?
    Loved this video, Jenna! I'm getting back into writing after a depression hiatus and rediscovering my zest for life, and it's been a slow and arduous process – your videos have been so inspirational and helpful along with the support of a book-writing course I'm enrolled in! Looking forward to your next one, and while The Savior's Champion doesn't sound like my normal cup of tea, I'll definitely have to check it out – and I just ordered a copy of _EVE_, a book I've been wanting to read since it first came out!
    Looking forward to more, Jenna. Have a good one!

  9. Hi Jenna how are you? I have a question… So I'm writing a dark fantasy paranormal novel (pretty much a haunted house story set in a fantasy world) and I'm writing it for Nanowrimo. But I have so many scenes for the way that ending could go and it's getting confusing. How do you deal with having too many possible endings? Also I feel like I won't be able to reach 50,000 words for this story because it feels like it won't be that long of a story. I don't know I'm just confused and I'm currently 9,234 words into it. I went into the story kind of out of the blue only knowing the characters and it kind of like walking down a really long hallway and only the house allows to go through the door it wants you to go through next. I feel a bit discouraged but I love this story and the characters soooo much. I just don't know how to settle the middle and end. I'm sorry for making this really long! Love you can't wait to finish your book when I get the chance!! 🙂

  10. I stopped my Taylor Swift music video marathon for this. That is how I dedicated I am.
    On another note, Pizza!!

  11. First draft is always Sh!t 🤣😂 LOVE IT. and true. Especially first draft of first book. Working on that here!! Thanks to Jenna for helping us know how to clean it up!!

  12. "We don't experience fall here in California"–depends where you live.  I'm up here in Shasta County, where we get all four seasons.  Triple digits in summer, freezing temperatures in winter, my allergies going freaking overdrive in spring (I hate spring), leaves everywhere all over the ground in fall.  But this is a Mediterranean climate up here, which is not common outside, well, the Mediterranean (our climate is kind of just there and here and nowhere else).  Also, I tend to be quite long-winded when I type.  Or speak.  Sorry about that.  And for a long comment on one line that isn't even related to the video's topic at all.  I'm weird.
