As far as random vlogs go, I’d say this one is pretty entertaining! As you can see my family and I went on vacation to New Hampshire and since we were there we had to go visit Sabbaday Falls once again!

Mandi Lynn is the young adult author of her debut novel, Essence. Beginning to write the story when she was only thirteen years old, after three and a half years of hard work, Essence was published and in print. To graduate in 2014, meanwhile Mandi goes to a vocational high school where she takes cosmetology alongside writing novels and doing regular schoolwork. Mandi can now be found on YouTube hosting YA Ink—a series of videos about writing and publishing—and sharing her journey as a writer.
Please keep in mind that all this is said assuming you have the basic understanding of grammar. Grammar is very important in writing, but the point is you don’t have to be super uptight about having PERFECT grammar.
