I have been reading blog posts tons of themlately on the subject of blogging..Posts such as:
Those are just some examples of the many postsgoing on about why writers should or should not blog. Some saying it is dead ora waste of time. Some think that you should not do it if you want to become abestseller. I love it personally. It is not a time waster for me since I loveto read and write.
I love talking about the challenges of being awriter. The late nights dealing with inner demons. The insanity that comes withhaving too many characters in my head. I need caffeine like any writer does towrite sometimes because I was up late the night before thinking a spider is inmy bed. I love all aspects of being a writer which is why I blog about it.
I use blogging to showcase my work, talk aboutthe writing progress and process, and talk about research topics for mywriting. I love using blogs to network and talk to people. As I have said workand school keep me busy. I still am working on balance though, and I know Ineed to blog more. Blogging is also a time consuming activity, but it is wellworth it.
What is your opinion on it? Why do you blog andwhy do you read others?
On another note my second ebook is out onSmashwords and Amazon. It is volume 1 of my poem collection titled The DarkSide of Human Nature. There are poems on hate, depression, anger, betrayal, andother dark subjects. I will have a volume 2 out, and it will be the opposite ofthe dark one, and feature the better side of human nature.
Here is the description for volume 1:
Death, betrayal, lies, abuse. Being controlledby someone you thought you loved. Bored and depressed with life. These arepoems about the darker emotions of human nature. A time to deal with numbness,and the hardship of life. When you read about the world through the eyes of aperson with thoughts this dark you will be happier with the life you have now.Of course there is always light, and hope for a better future to those thatwait for a new day!
And here is the link to it:
I priced it $2.99. I thought that will be a goodprice since it has tons of poems in it. I hope you enjoyed my post, and I willtry to blog more, and maybe see if I can blog on Mondays, Tuesdays, andThursdays.
Until Next Time,
Another thought occurred to me why write about revenge? It is a touchy subject to some people. One thing is for sure some people out there have all been wronged one way or another. People deal with ways over being wronged in different ways for instance I write about it. Some people have the gift of letting it go, and getting over it quickly. Some people don’t though.
There are people that don’t think about how to get back at them and make them pay, but I do. It is not a good thing though to do that because some say it is giving them power over you.
The reason why people do not get revenge is simply because of fear that they will get sent to jail or worse. There are ways around it though if you think about it hard enough. If you write about it without using their names or appearances you can definitely get away with it. Some people do deserve to get their revenge. Bully victims should be able to get back at their aggressors because if they did less people would be bullied.
I love to write about revenge because there are many people out there that deserved to get it served to them. I write for the victims of bullying, and I write it because I am one of the writers crazy enough to go there. I love getting back at people.
I do not do it in real life because it is not worth it. Those people are not worth paying attention to either. I have it stay in the story world, and I love making stories where people get what they deserve because I see too many people in real life getting away with it.
I write about it to get back at those people who do mean things, and people who do crimes and get away with it. My character loves getting back at people especially the mean high school girls who bully people to death to the point where the victims kill themselves. I have the most fun with revenge stories, and I will hopefully have a collection dedicated to revenge out soon.
Until next time,
Rage and Writing:
I have been thinking about emotions. Ones like rage in particular. I have built up a lot over the years. After being bullied, lied to, backstabbed, betrayed, and controlled I built up pent up rage. Instead of being depressed. Rage made me hate people and crowds. The littlest thing used to set me off. I did not want to go to a psychologist because they did not help.
I had absolutely no way in my mind to deal with it. I told my mom everything, and that is when I found a way to deal with it. Mom told me to write about it, and I did.
Afterward I felt so much better because I finally found a way to deal with my rage. I am a lot better now because I turned it into something creative instead of destructive.
I can deal with crowds better, and the only time I hate people is when they are rude back. I rarely go into rage mode, and when I do I write out a scene where the person gets it, or I turn the situation around. I like to use writing as therapy, and it is way cheaper. Here is a helpful way to deal with rage:
1. Write down the situation and why it made you angry.
2. Then turn it around and make it the way you wanted it to go.
3. If it is a person that made you mad with rage use them in a story, and have them get what they deserve.
4. Laugh at the reason why you were like that especially if the person was not worth thinking about.
5. Tell yourself you have better things to do then letting a childish, immature person get to you.
Those are some of the steps I take to deal with it. How about you how do you deal with situations and people that fill you up with rage? How do you deal with it period?
Having anger and hatred in your system is not good for you. I am a prime example after being angry and hateful most of my life I know all too well what it does to a person. It causes issues mentally and physically. It makes being with other people difficult because the littlest thing can make you go over the edge.
Wanting revenge is also a sign of hatred against the people you hate, but some people take it to the next level. Some people actually methodically plan out revenge, and if successful it lasts for a few minutes for the guilt to set in. That way to go is not advisable because the legal system is a pain in the ass taking days out of your life in court. Not worth it.
There is another way to deal with those emotions though. Writing about it. Not using actual names of course, but taking the emotions and using them for something good and constructive. Writing about the situation that you are angry about or the types of people that make you hate or angry, and continually bashing it over and over again until it goes away. Writing about people getting it because of what they said and did. I thought if I ignore the bad things it would go away, but no it turns out it is here to stay.
That is how I found my strength writing about the darker stuff until it does not bother me. I found those emotions as a catalyst to boost me to the next level. I use it like fuel making me write, and that is the reason why I do not feel like writing because I hated those emotions. That is probably the thing that is going to up my writing to the next level because I am turning those emotions into something constructive instead of destructive. I finally accepted what kind of writing I am good at, and how to handle certain emotions instead of letting it ruin my life.
