Song - Doing Something Right...

Never thought that I'd be so inspired
Never thought that I'd find the higher truth
I believed that love was overrated
'Till the moment I found you

Now baby I know I don't deserve
The love you give me
But now I understand that

If you want me I must be doing something right
I got nothing left to prove
And it's all because of you
So if you need me
And baby I make you feel alive
I know I must be doing
Doing something right

It's because of you I feel so lifted
I've been looking at my life from higher ground
Never thought that I'd be so elated
You're the one who turned it all around

Now baby, I didn't know myself
Until you changed me
And made me understand that

If you want me I must be doing something right
I got nothing left to prove
And it's all because of you
So if you need me
And baby I make you feel alive
I know I must be doing
Doing something right

And baby I know I don't deserve the love you give me
But I don't really care, cause

If you want me I must be doing something right
I got nothing left to prove
And it's all because of you
So if you need me
And baby I make you feel alive
I know I must be doing
Doing something right

Doing something right
Yeah yeah
Something right

So if you need me
And baby I make you feel alive
I know I must be doing
 Must be doing something right
Yeah yeah
Something right

NaNoWriMo - Day Eight

It's been a hard eight days of writing. I haven't done much. Only hit 13,500 words last night. I believe if I can believe in myself I can write this story and give it good justice. I picked this type of story due to some news hitting my area. Bullying is what my story is about. I was bullied as a child and teenager. Still got bullied by close family and friends. I felt the world needs to do something about bullying in schools. Even in Catholic and Christian schools you get bullied in. There is many ways of getting bullied.

I have a close friend, who's daughter was bullied not only in school but on media too. This means Emails, Media outlets like MySpace, Tumbler, Twitter, Facebook and others like these. Plus, through text messages and kids leaving messages in your school locker. Some teachers ignore it and let it carry on. Others will stop it. You can get bullied by your teachers as well as peers. You have to watch who you talk to everywhere. Bullies hide is all forms in this world.

I'm a Christian and Catholic. I believe even at church you can be bullied and ignored. You should try and look out for these sorts of people. Don't let them get at you. If you need to talk to anyone, tell your parents first, then a teacher you can trust. If you get bullied online, distance yourself from that source. You need to first protect yourself, then you can help others in your same situation.

REMEMBER: God is there for you. Ask for his help. Ask for him to enter your heart and soul. He will send his Holy Spirit and Jesus to help you. Believe in them and you can be safe almost anywhere. He is there for you all.

OctPoWriMo - Day Seven

Missing You

Time moves and things change
As they're supposed to.
I sit on the outside looking in
And think of you.

I think that I should move on
But it's because people keep talking
Like I have to follow.

Can't they tell by now that I'm different?
Not remember how close we were?
I barely left your side
And you stayed with me.

I don't care what they say
Because I miss you,
I miss you so much.

You were my life,
My soul,
My saving grace.

You were my home.

Now you're gone
And so is everything,
Everything I ever knew..

OctPoWriMo - Day Five

Who I Am

I'm stuck between
who I am ,
who I want to be,
and who I should be.

I should be a smart
good girl,
maybe a bit mysterious,
given I like to keep secrets.

I want to be at least average,
pretty, and confident.
I want to be happy
and have friends that truly care.

But unfortunately, I'm
stupid, not very pretty, and very annoying.
I'm a depressed wreck
with no chance of true happiness.

I'm constantly thinking
of who I want to be,
worrying over who I should be,
and hating who I really am.

OctPoWriMo - Day Four

Best Way To Go

Flesh and hair yield no interest in me these days.
Limbs and lips are just accessories to the soul.

No one carries a drop of my blood in their heart,
So why carry on living in an empty vessel,
An empty sack of bones and non functional organs?

Instead, I wish I were a small secluded flower
Up on a hill with fresh air and vanilla spring water.

Dying as a person demands attention and harsh fluorescent lights.
A stench of biohazard trash and wasted moments besiege a white, sterilized room.

But wilting and withering away like a flower does
Must be the most peaceful way to go...

Surrounded by life as the sun sets and a light scent 
Of blooming roses and imminent rain lovingly intoxicate 
Delicate and decaying parts of me,
A simple form of life on earth...

To lie so still cushioned by a quilt of grass,
While the sun warms me up,
And it's dark counterpart cools me down
Day after day, 
Until I've withered thoroughly 
And have at last joined the the souls of nature deceased.

OctPoWriMo - Day Three

Depression Takes It's Toll

Behind these eyes, I cry the tears I've never shed
In my heart, I feel the pain I have known to dread
I am fractured, shattered
And for once a smile can't smother the hurt
It'll only make it worse

I was prepared for what would happen
I kept repeating that if would be tragic
My heart is cracked open, broken
I could feel his heart begin to rest
And I understand that it's for the best

I hate this
The tears keep tumblind down
And I can't fake it, I can't fake it
I am fractured, shattered
And for once a smile can't mask the hurt
It'll only make everything worse

This is the first time I've ever had to feel
It hurts to have something to reveal
I hate looking a mess
From the burning in my chest
Because the tears are finally real

OctPoWriMo - Day Two

Refusal to Acceptance

I am in denial.
I sometimes hope.
I sometimes wish.
So much that..
I sometimes believe..
That you need me as much as I do you.
That you want to talk as much as I want to talk to you
That you think of me as much as I think of you.
I am in denial. 
Because I know that isn't so.
I need you, and you can go on without me.
I want to talk to you all day long but you can occupy yourself without me.
And I think of you all day long and I'm you hardly think of me.
I know I'm in denial. 
But acceptance is what I need to achieve. 
I'm having a hard time getting there.
I think id rather believe what I want.. 
It makes me happy.. I smile..
In the moment..
For the moment..
But that can only be followed by pain and disappointment.
I thank you though
For being the false happiness in my beautiful imaginary world.

OctPoWritMo - Number One

As Time Passed By

Two weeks have passed
I still await the day when everything
Shall become the way I have dreamt

But all wishes become shattered
As I encounter the same loneliness 
That has been my companion through time

In occasions when sadness surrounds me, 
Deciding to remind myself of happier times 
Seems useless to the mind,

And every bit of passion in me,
Desires your presence again
Forgetting all the pain it causes the heart.

Could this be the final chapter?
A moment in history where it all ends,
Or could it be a renewal of my life itself?

I made some changes to Cattell's list. I suspect some words have shifted meanings since Cattell listed them, such as, critical meant evaluating but is now commonly used to mean condemning. So, I added a few words (to the bottoms of lists), removed a couple, and moved one. I listed his "5 Global Factors" under the categories where they seemed to best fit with the 16. (They're global because Cattell felt they fit several categories.)

The "way too" words in the columns to left and right I added. These aren't traits people are born with. Environment or life events warped the person in these directions. These are also where characters have the potential for the most (story) growth.

HISTORY: Back in the 1930s Gordon Allport collected 17,953 personality words -- by scanning through the dictionary! He whittled them down to 4505. Cattell whittled them further to 171 then categorized them.

10 Things To Consider When Naming Characters

1. What does the name mean?
2. What were his parents’ names?
3. Where are his grandparents from?
4. Were his parents wealthy or poor?
5. Where was he born?
6. What is his birthday?

Google the date to ensure you haven’t given him a ‘famous’ or ‘infamous’ birthday.
Google the year to find out the 20 most popular names that year.
What film was No. 1 in the year that he was born?
What song was No. 1 in the year that he was born?
What TV series was the most popular?
7. What are his siblings’ names?
8. What versions of his name will people use?

Example: Amanda, Mandy, Mands
9. When you say the name out loud - first and last name – how does it sound?
10. Are the initials inadvertently funny?

Example: Patty Clark will always be PC
Three Ways to help you choose a name

Does the meaning suit your character’s role?
Is it believable for the time he was born?
Does it suit his ancestry?
The Others

Make a list of your characters’ names.

Do they all begin with the same, or a similar sounding, letter of the alphabet? If they do, change them.
Do they have a different number of syllables? If they don’t, change them.


These are 12 of the most annoying clichés in writing. Clichés alienate your audience. Avoid them if you can. 

1. Avoid it like the plague
2. Dead as a door nail
3. Take the tiger by the tail
4. Low hanging fruit
5. If only walls could talk
6. The pot calling the kettle black
7. Think outside the box
8. Thick as thieves
9. But at the end of the day
10. Plenty of fish in the sea
11. Every dog has its day
12. Like a kid in a candy store

Which cliché annoys you more than these?

Workshop Experience

First Workshop 

The first workshop I'd been to was an experience i savored and it was good. I found talking about what I liked about someone's story and what could be improved was a learning experience. I got feedback on my first lesbian short story. It was good to know what I could improve on and what was good. I always like to know what I could improve on my writing. I just find as I'm still writing, I will still keep writing. 

  • Learned to take critiques and not just them hating my work
  • Write to improve my work 
  • Plan out a story with my story template
I think writing is my thing. Just have to learn to improve and take people critiques of my work with a grain of salt. Not to take it as a bad thing. To take it as a way of learning to improve my work and hopefully get something published. I love writing and will continue to write no matter what.

Wednesday Thoughts

Goals for September

  • Finish plotting out my 5th novel
  • Begin writing 5th novel
  • Post Regular on blogs
  • No Procrastinating when I should be writing
  • No Facebook when I should be writing
  • Listing to Music when writing
I have been having trouble posting here. I have let things lapse when I should be keeping my readers up to date with my work. I will try be better at posting about my stories, my poems and anything else I want to share here. I know I'm on my 5th novel. It's called - Change of Heart (Chronicles of Natasha Fortenberry). 

It's basically about a girl who is in a car accident and is rushed to hospital. She remembers nothing about the accident till she is diagnosed with MS. She thinks God had abandoned her as she is told she will have t use crutches or a wheelchair to get around. Plus she is put on very strong pain medication along with her other medications. She is diabetic, asthmatic and now MS. She starts to believe God has abandoned her until she starts seeing angels and having visions. She then finds God and understands why she has what she has. She begins to witness to other teens and children in hospital and in schools that God is there for them. Also that God is where he is meant to be. All they have to do is ask Him to enter their hearts and the Holy Spirit will guide them. 

I think this story is going to be number one in a series of book about Natasha Fortenberry. I hope it works out. I just love using my r/l into my stories. Yes I do see angels and have visions. That is why I'm writing this story, plus I have been diagnosed with MS recently.
