Bored in class

There's a reason for my insanity
for the crazy twinkle in my eye
the compulsive swinging of my fists
and the unreadable babble I mutter
There's a reason for all of this
But I'm too insane to explain





Rawr!! I'm in math lab and I'm bored! It was something quick.

My Generation

I struggle through this life, as a young woman, the kind of person who is always remembered but seldom by name. It can feel sometimes that the things we are taught as young girls are mainly lies. I don’t believe however that we are told these lies in a malicious manner, nor do our parents wish to deceive us, no we are misled by our parents dreams and desires. We are told about a world they wish existed - the perfect world they so desperately want to bring us up in. One where men will treat us… Continue

What Are Writers’ Groups and How Can You Benefit from Them?

Writers’ groups can be small informal groups that meet periodically at one of the author’s homes, or larger more formalized organizations that meet in public places such as the local library or a restaurant. The group may just sit around a coffee table and read each other’s work, or the group may have guest speakers and a formal agenda. In either case, the goal is to provide information and encouragement to advance writers’ careers, whether you are working on your first project or are an… Continue

Shadows.

This is the cover picture to my newest project.



And the redone first paragraph that I posted in my first blog.



The sun beat down onto the pavement creating ripples to rise from the street, giving the illusion of water. The few clouds that resided in the sky steered clear of the blazing orange ball that dominated the sheer blue sky. The variety of greenery that claimed the side of the road watched aimlessly as a bright yellow…

Poem 2

There's a pulling on my being

a tugging that's unyielding

worry crawling to my heart

a feeling not stopping

a Dictator ready to march

until it conquers all

leaving nothing untouched

a war within myself

a victory not meant for me

Slow breathing can not help

nor reassuring thoughts

only Death can be my savior

from insanity and loss

the pulling is always there

the scraping crawling will not stop

the battle rages

and… Continue

Very Happy!

Yesterday was a pretty good day for me; I spent most of the morning cleaning my room and listening to my Music, filled out a few more Applications and am just waiting on getting a ride to the next town to hand them in, though I don't see why I'm applying outside of town when I probably won't have transportation to get to and from work every day. Probably should have thought of that before. When I was finished filling them out and cleaning up my room, I hooked up my 360 and played a little Rock… Continue

Peom 1

I like to watch you
See you walk
breathe
laugh
smile
especially at me
I want to know I bring you happiness
I want to know if I'm your special someone
because your very soul lights up my world
your body does not matter
just the person you are is amazing
thats why I like to watch
So I can see you resonate
to see you go through the day
and still be your wonderful you
I love you
I always will

Bleh!

Alright, well my Profile was accepted so I can get started putting up some content, not that I've got anything to share really. All of my previous work is already uploaded on my other Website over on FreeWebs. So I figured while I've got nothing of my own work to really share that I'll just do a little blog to keep anyone who's interested updated with what's going on with me. Unfortunately that may or may not work out all too well as there's hardly anything going on with me, but in the future… Continue

How to Self Publish A Book: Publishing, Printing, and Pricing

The publishing world is changing. It's becoming more difficult for first time authors to break in as fewer titles are published by the major publishing houses. Literary agents are reluctant to take on new authors and prefer to concentrate on authors who have been previously published with a successful track record. Are there any options for writers?



Yes. Self publishing is a viable option for many authors. Self publishing means the author has the control of and the responsibility for… Continue

The Usage of Social Media Sites to Promote Yourself

When a book is in its final stages, the writer that is promoting the book on their own is faced with marketing strategies. Plans need to be thought out how to bring this newly published book to the masses, and one way of doing this that many writers are taking advantage of are the social media sites like Twitter, Facebook, DIGG, MySpace and others.



Twitter is one of the websites that has become extremely popular and is used not only by people that go there to read, but are also able… Continue

Book Promotion and Marketing—Online & Offline

Writing a book is only part of having a successful book, whether it is a book that has been published by a large or small publishing company, a book that is a print on demand which the author is self publishing, or even if it is an electronic book. The other part of a successful book is the book promotion, this means the author will have book signings set up by an agent, or they will need to learn marketing skills for a self published book. Marketing skills are something that is needed even for… Continue
