About Me

My photo

I love writing books and working on them. I'm a messy person, yet I love to organize. (Just not my room.)
I love to read, especially Magic Tree House, Boxcar Children, and A to Z Mysteries Super Edition.
I love using Netflix; they have helped me realize how much of a kid I am not and how much of an adult I am not.

Blogs Can Be Noticed! YES!

Okay, so Monday evening, one of my Facebook friends was asking "for a friend" how someone would dispose of a body. A dead body. Yep.

Not surprisingly, many people gave plenty of suggestions, myself included. Because who hasn't thought of how to murder your crazy ex-boyfriend and get away with it? LOL! Not me. Because I'm not crazy. I'm a writer. A soon to be published author!

Today, they then posted this: Not sure how to feel. So many friends gave suggestions on how to dispose of a body. Yeah, that's because you and most of your friends are authors. Some of them, even me, even stated that we're writers. One person actually linked a pretty cool blog, one she wrote herself, called 13 Ways Writers Are Mistaken For Serial Killers.

I decided to check it out. It is incredibly accurate! I remember going to a few local critique meetings for local authors. They explained how their husbands say "Why would you think that?" as they type up on Google search: How to hack a body into 30 pieces? Or something like that. Get used to it. You're an author! Only guess what? You're on a government watch list now.

Yeah, I wouldn't be surprised if I'm on that list. I've looked up some pretty weird stuff, even porn. I admit it. I'm into that stuff, but more on erotic stories than actual videos. Lately, though, I've noticed that even the audio turns me on. How bout dat?

Back to Kristen Lamb's blog! I think the points that get me the most are #8 and #12. And here's why.

#8 Writers Plan Their Kills Methodically
We writers/authors take our books pretty seriously. We know there won't be much of an audience if there's no plot or a pace to the way things are going. A book is much like a movie. If neither are in it, there's no direction. No point to the book. Why are you writing?!

#12 Writers Are Also Sadists
Now give me just a moment while I look up the word Sadist. Okay, yep, I'm definitely a Sadist. LOL! That explains why this point gets to me so well. It's the way Kristen writes it as well. So perfect that I can't just paraphrase it.
Excellent fiction is the path of greatest resistance which means good writers are all about exacting pain. Doling it out bit by bit. Upping the heat and making that victim and all who love him squirm, then panic, then question the very meaning of their existence. We push our victims until just before that spark of hope in their eyes extinguishes completely.
And then we give them a bone and rescue them so there. We aren’t completely heartless. Sheesh, these people are imaginary. Why so freaked out?
Thank you! Now I can't stop thinking of an unpublished work I did: Trouble in the Making. I had the villain put the MC in such excruciating, depressing, psychological pain. I loved every bit of it! And remember how the villain in almost every book, every movie, every TV show, gets caught? Not in this one, baby! The MC is placed in - well, maybe I shouldn't spoil it too much.

But yes. To make my point, blogs can be noticed when they're placed in correct posts. For instance, if someone worries about their friends putting down suggestions on how to dispose of a dead body, don't put too much stress on it. Yes, my friend, we're all killers. We just hide the bodies in our words, not our backyards.

Communication Is ALWAYS Key

I know. I haven't posted a blog since November. Due to new updates/upgrades on BlogTalkRadio, I was forced to quit my radio show. It still feels weird to not be hosting segments anymore, but at least I got/get to use my free time better. I don't know when it will happen. I have a good feeling, though, that by the end of the year, I will be uploading podcasts of my radio show onto my main YouTube channel.

That's right! I don't know if I told you this. I now have TWO YouTube channels. Wait, wait, wait. Stop it, Rabbit. You did not start this blog to talk about your social platforms. Take a breath, let it out, and start over.

Hi, my Hopefuls! :) I know it's been a long time. A lot has happened. I finally quit my job and am searching for a better one. Or at least - a job where teamwork and communication is stronger than my last job. Geez! Anyways...

In December, I had my first argument with my best friend. Well, our first argument about our relationship, I should say. I'm not going into details, but we ended up agreeing to downgrade as friends. It still feels wrong to call her a "friend." She's been my best friend since college, and she always will be.

Today, around 4am, she messaged me about her side of the relationship. For about thirty minutes, I seriously thought she was leaving me. She didn't say she wanted to part, but I could somehow see it in the wording. I cried. For a good amount, I cried. It made me realize how important she is in my life, and how drastic my life would seriously change if she left. I then poured my heart out to her. I confessed how much she means to me. That the problems and worries she has of her side of the relationship she doesn't need to work on by herself.

My college best friend has changed so much. She noticed a lot of her flaws over the years. She tries so hard to fix them and improve herself. Many times, I thought she was avoiding me. (She actually confirmed that in the convo.) And ever since our argument, it felt like she didn't want me at all. Far from it!

It turned out she was protecting me from the mistakes she thought I was making. Perhaps so, but I've tried so hard to hang out with her. I learned myself that I build walls between the people I like. But she is someone I love! If I ever did that, I would lose the last person I confess my secrets. I would lose the only person outside of my family I vent to. After our conversation, I realized we mended our broken hearts of each other. It makes me so happy! So here, on this blog, I will confess something, and I hope she sees it. Cause this secret is of her.

Whether it be friends, best friends, girlfriends, or lovers, I love you, my sweet, beautiful college buddy, forever and ever. And that will never change!
