I have been very busy with work and school so much that this is one of the only days I can get without going to work and school. It was my birthday on the 25th, and I am one year older now. And for my birthday I got an early birthday present..An Ipad 1st generation. I traded in my 3ds and Ds XL for it all the games and accessories and a few xbox games I am not playing I paid a good amount under 200! I got it from Gamestop, and the device will get me through writing on the go and college! I am pretty happy with it, and I will do a review on it with the post for writers. I have been making progress on the retail novel still putting in changes…I have been busy with work and school, and rewrites have been slowly getting there. I have decided to do a blog post every monday called Mad Mondays where I write about the stuff that makes me mad because it would be a fun thing to do for the blog. I am done with a major fight scene, but it does need polishing I will work on it. Hopefully everything can be done by Christmas maybe? No promises since my life is nonstop busy, and now for a Mad Monday post.
Mad Monday: Topic: Driving..
One of the things that makes me mad is truck drivers, and I am talking about the situation that happened to me recently. I stopped at a stop light, and a young guy stops so close to me he will hit me if he gets hit from behind. I try to pull up to get some space and he fills in the gap by moving closer. It makes me so angry I honk at him, and yell at him when he moves up more. I mean really give me some space because if I get hit because of some moron stopping to close I am suing him, and he will be paying for my car too! Another driving related thing is not! reading the road signs like look around because there is an intersection that merges and there are several signs saying that, but people don’t listen especially if there is an accident they want to race ahead! I did not let some guy in because he did not read the signs and wanted to race ahead of the people stopping because there was an accident. Another thing is tailing I HATE that period it is so annoying if you are on the road and some jerk thinks it is funny to ride the car. Get off! If you want to get somewhere that badly go the hell around my car and get off it!
That is it for Mad Mondays..
Until next time,
Tell me readers what makes you mad when it comes to the road?
I have been busy lately between work, school, and writing I have not had as much time to update this website. I am done with my summer class. I have been working on three main projects. The second killer ebook, Fur and Fang of love, and the second retail novel. I have not gotten back the first retail novel yet, and when I do time to edit, give it to beta readers, and get a cover artist then publish it. The editing for Blood Fire and Moon Watch stalled thanks to a virus messing it up to the point where I need a new hard drive. I have signed up for Poetry 1, novel writing and a Math class. I am looking forward to the fall!! I graduate during the Spring with an associates of science.
That is all for now. What about you? Have you been busy this summer?
Thanks to my current job I have another book in the works. I am writing one about working for a company called Willy’s Place. It is not a real company at all, but a made up one inspired by retail stores in general. That is right retail, and the main character is the vampire named Scarlet Nightshade, and I am bringing her back for another book. She is the star of The Killer Contract Agency two, and she has another book called Scarlet’s Redemption. I love writing about her because she is a sassy vampire. Stephan will make appearances in it too. And she will account her tails of customers behaving badly, but there will be some good situations too. I am letting people see what really goes on as an employee working in a retail store.
As for the other projects I have been working on Hexlax some, and I will try to get a traditional contract for the Astral Witch series, and Blood Fire & Moon Watch the rest will be self-published because there are more books as far as character stories. There could possibly be more stories for the Blood Fire & Moon Watch series too in the future.
I am an avid reader as well, and I know I promised to review The Writer, and I am working on it when I can. I have been busy with work, and school. Now that my hours are being shorter after this week I will have more time to read. I have also discovered I can read and write during my lunch break which is what I have been doing to make writing a part of my life. I will be writing a blog post about making time for writing too since that is what I am experimenting with.
I just got the new game Elder Scrolls: Skyrim, and it is a good game too. You build your character as you go, and it has dragons. I played it for a few hours, and I got to a point where I had to climb a mountain. I tried to find my way around it, but to no avail. Finally I decided to jump up it, and it was no easy task. I found my way eventually. And sitting there trying and trying..I almost gave up on it, but I did not at all. I kept trying despite the odds. I kept going and going no matter how hard it was. It was trying all that, and more that I realized it was like writing.
A good writer is one who does not give up despite the odds, and one who will not quit no matter what. One who keeps trying and trying until they have an agent or publisher contract in their hands. Apply the desire to not give up to writing, and you just might find yourself in a very happy place. And just maybe you can climb that annoying mountain that seems to take forever to climb!
