I honestly had no idea what this box would be like. I was bombarded with advertisements for 10,000 different boxes on my social media sites after trying my first subscription box. But Scribbler was the only one that really stood out from the others with their unique theme and interactive items included. Curators and fellow writers Victoria Scott and Lindsay Cummings are the minds behind the created one-of-a-kind subscription box that is the perfect treat for aspiring writers.

At Scribbler they pride themselves on stocking their boxes full of valuable, useful tools for writers to help improve their craft, both amateur and experienced alike. Like their collectible Writer Passports, that are designed by a Bestselling author to teach writers how to master various writing topics, for example, character building, plotting, and point of view.

They also have creative writing exercises that are exciting to delve into and an exclusive invitation to chat with a publishing professional, rotating from editors, bestselling authors, publishers, and literary agents on Youtube.

The boxes are priced at $29.99 a month plus $7.99 shipping. You can purchase one or pay for 3-6 months for a discount here!

Needless-to-say, I was beyond thrilled when I received my box and eagerly opened it to discover a plethora of writer goodies stashed inside! All festively Halloween colored to fuel my spooky soul too!

Novelly Yours Candles certainly did!DSC_0203 (2)

One of the most exciting items that's included in the Scribbler boxes is an invitation to chat with a publishing professional on Youtube! I think this is such a brilliant idea, especially for those who are breaking into the writing scene and have questions they can post in the comments for the speaker to answer.

Neil Gaiman fans (me included) were heard around the world when they discovered this gem hiding under the Halloween-themed paper confetti. Author of Sandman and American Gods deserves nothing less than an exceptionally well-made pin to make its new home on your favorite jacket or tote!

Although this is my first box, I'm so impressed with the quality of all the items! These collectible writing passports are packed with notes, career highlights, bio, and advice on the theme of the month from a featured author. This months theme is plotting with Robert Bryndza, author of the included novel.

They also include an inside look at the publishing process with a peak at #1 international bestseller author Robert Brynda's copy edits of his book, The Night Stalker. Showing how he decides what to delete and comments explaining why he chooses to avoid repetition in some cases or visualization techniques. The back of the pamphlet gives a small description of all the items inside your box!

Every month Scribbler sends a bestselling novel. There's even a little matching bookmark! The October book this month is The Night Stalker by featured author Robert Bryndza, which is a bone-chilling page turner! It's truly a terrifying addition to the bookshelves of thriller lovers.

The Scribbler team does an impeccable job picking out items to inspire and challenge aspiring writers and novelists. This subscription box has dealt a powerful punch in terms of first impressions! Due to the number of constructive exercises and writer resources plus the quintessential products in this Scribbler box I give it a 5/5!

I didn't make a section for every single item, but the box also contained a signed bookplate by Robert Bryndza, a temporary tattoo says "YOUR STORY MATTERS", and an exclusive inside look into Saves a Cat! Writes a Novel, a novel-writing guidebook.

So far it's blowing all the subscription boxes out of the water!

Odyssey Has Been Part Of My Life For Almost 4 Years And I'm Forever Grateful

With over 200 articles later, it's time to say goodbye.

In the summer of 2015, I stumbled upon Odyssey and requested to sign up. I didn't really have much of a background in writing besides school work and the occasional poetry I would write when I was little and, to be honest, I hated writing. A few days later I got the notification that I was now a creator on the FGCU Odyssey team and I was really excited. I still can't tell you what prompted me to join, but I'm so glad I did.

As a content creator, over the past 3.5 years, I have been able to write about anything and everything. I've gotten personal, I've written comical listicles, but what I loved the most was that I finally had a platform to share my thoughts and opinions on. I was able to voice my inner thoughts and share them with friends, family, and strangers. And it turns out, I LOVE writing very much.

What really makes me so grateful is that I have been able to reach others with my writing and people are able to tell me that my writing resonated with them. It's comforting to be able to hear that someone felt the same way as me in my articles. I even had a few people tell me that they cried reading my work. I didn't think I could make that much of an impact.

Three other moments that I'll never forget is when a coffee company contacted me and sent me a box of coffee beans so I can write about them, a poet reached out to have me review her poetry book, and when I wrote about the character, Michael, from "Jane The Virgin" and the actor who played him read it and tweeted me about it.

Odyssey has given me so much experience, not only with writing but with editing as well, having been editor in chief of the team for a year. I managed a team, I watched us grow and learned to be a leader. With over 200 articles later, it's time to say goodbye.

Thank you, Odyssey, for giving me a voice, for giving me skills, for giving me friends, and for helping me discover my passion.
