Hey there, universe. I appreciate the way you’ve been kicking my butt lately, but it’s finally my turn to kick back!
Hello to everyone that’s still hanging around. I just want to give a great big hug and thank you to you guys, gals, and complete weirdos (like me). Also super shout out to Ragazza Triste. If you haven’t already, you should check out her blog. She has amazing posts and pieces that I am in love with. YOU SHOULD GO THERE!
And now that I’m done pressuring you, I present a new short story titled Little Snow Doll. There are birds chirping and beautiful flowers blooming outside, so obviously I give you a story set in winter, after a massive snow storm. Please read and comment. Happy reading!
I hope your year is off to a good start and if not, I hope it gets better. I come to you today for mainly 2 reasons: Thank yous and new short story!
First off, thank you to all that kept up with, read, and/or liked A-to-Z: The Emotional Alphabet. I love when others enjoy my writing. It was a fun challenge for me, and I hope you all might have been inspired to try it out yourselves. If you haven’t read them (or you just want to read them again. I’m not one to judge.😁) check out A-to-Z here.
Second, YES! I did mention a new short story, lovingly titled by one of my friends: Sleep Deprived. This story unexpectedly came to be as my friend complained that she needed something to read. It was only supposed to be 4 parts, but after all the whining and pestering, my friend managed to get 12 out of me. It is about the relationship between two childhood friends with insomnia. Please take time to read it. Also, as this is outside my usual area, and due to language and certain content, I must warn you (I cannot stress this enough), Sleep Deprived is FOR READERS AGE 18 AND OLDER(All caps. Bolded. In red. Don’t ignore it!) Please, please, PLEASE! read at your own discretion.
Also, I’d love to hear from you all. I encourage all comments, criticisms, or just plain hellos, so do send me some.
Anyway, that about sums up this greeting. Happy reading!
Hello all! I hope you enjoyed 30 Days of Love. I had so much fun writing it and I hope you all had just as much fun reading. If you’d like, head to my Polyvore page here to see outfits that follow the poems.
I know it’s been a while since an update, but I’m working on Deadly Roses whenever I have time, as well as the long ago mentioned Beautiful, Blonde, Broken, and a couple other projects, all of which I am so greatly excited about and hope to share with you. So please bear with me and my slowness. In the meantime, if you haven’t already, check out Life’s Story, a project that I have already completed, or some of my other short stories and poems.
I hope you stick around to enjoy more of my words. Thanks. Keep reading!
I have challenged myself to write a series of poems, one for each day of the month of November (as it is my favorite month :“Happy Birthday Me!”). I would like to title the series 30 Days of Love. I hope you all enjoy. Happy reading!
Happy thanksgiving, everyone! This is the time of year where we should slow down and take in all the wonderful things life has provided us. We should think and share what we are thankful for. Not just the good things, but the bad things too, because a bad thing my lead to a good thing. You never know. Life is crazy like that. So grab a family member or a friend and try to come up with as many things as you can that you are thankful for. Even make a game out of it, like so:
The Thankful Game
What you’ll need:
Some kind of writing utensil
What to do:
1) Every person gets a piece of paper and a writing utensil.
2) Set the timer for 3 minutes.
3) Start the timer and everyone writes down as many things that they’re thankful for in the allotted time.
4) When time’s up, everyone gets a chance to say what they wrote that they’re thankful for. If anyone else wrote the same thing, the players that has similar items have to cross it off their lists. Whoever has the most things left on their list at the end, wins (one point for every item).
Hint: Try to be as specific as possible. Example: Instead of “family”, try “my favorite aunt, Maggie”.
This is possible because of you. Yeah, YOU. The one reading this. Thanks for the awesome year and I hope you stick with me through the next one. Feel free to read through this report or not. Makes no difference to me. If you’d rather watch tv, listen to music, read a book (or reread mine 😉 ), or just bask in your awesomeness, go right on ahead. Enjoy your time. You deserve it. Also, don’t be afraid to leave comments or whatever. I love hearing from you. Thanks again and Happy New Years!
*I’ve always wanted to say that. 😄
P.S. Also, if you wouldn’t mind taking this little poll, I’d be very grateful. If you do, you could get a special shout out from me! (Probably not, but there’s hope and hope’s its own reward. 😄)
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 750 times in 2014. If it were a cable car, it would take about 13 trips to carry that many people.
Over the next few days I plan to try and upload new chapters of Deadly Roses. I know it’s been forever, but I plan on trying my hardest. Thank you for putting up with me and I hope you enjoy the next few chapters. Happy reading!
