I had an interesting day today after going to two libraries to look for cool publishing books, and writing books. I did not find any conceal carry books either at the library. That sucked, but online they have it. I also learned how to deal with situations like what to do if you get pulled over, and you have a gun in the car. I had a few questions to a few people about superheroes, and talked to them about Hit Girl in Kick Ass like if she tried to do that in real life would she get caught? It turned out a yes, but apparently I am now labeled as “Crazy” just because I asked a few serious questions about the things that would happen if the superhero world was real. I did not know society frowns about that, and asking questions in that area. What happened to imagination these days? Or is it once you get older you lose that what if thing, and you just live in the real world. I guess that is what I get for asking a perfectly reasonable question in my opinion, and I end up getting labeled as crazy for being a writer. Oh well not to self do not ask people those questions.
It has been a while since I posted. I went to Alphretta Georgia to see relatives for the weekend. I went there to see relatives, and my boyfriend came with us. I went to a place in North Carolina called Bernie’s Barbaque, and it was a nice little dive. I also went to Cook Out which is kind of like Five Guys and I heard we are getting one in Richmond which is great. I have also planned to get the Guide to Literary Agents in my quest to become a published author. I also need an Ipod touch to blog on the go as well. That is all for now.
Today, I had fun at the Southern womens show. It had all kinds of vendors there, and there were samples galore I wound up with a whole bag of goodies as well. It made being a woman a very good thing to be there were make-up booths, food ones, jewelry, clothes, hair booths too. It was at the sme place where the galactic beadshow was.
I went to Feathernesters for lunch which was a unique place to dine at. Once you go in the store you think is this a restaurant or an antique shop because that is all you see. The farther you go in the more you realize it is a restaurant the menu is very simple, but tasty and good. The place is in Lakeview richmond.
I explored the area and found a consignment place and a store called Memory Records where you can find actual vinyl records. There was even a place called Umami tea and coffee shop in the are which had a wide collection of teas and coffees. Overall it was a good day exploring and trying foods.
I was hanging out with my boyfriend, and we got talking. The conversation led me to research self-publishing. I am talkative enough, and I doubt I need an agent right now. After I edit the work, and take it to be edited by others. I have decided to try with an E-Book to see what happens. It might lead to other publishers noticing my work, and I still have a ways to go though before I get my novel published. I just hope I do good with getting on track.
I am only 4”8 which is not that tall to some people. To most people I look like a child. I am not complaining though being short has its advantages. I thought that I was too weak at one point. I thought that it was easy for a taller person to easily hurt me, and that I was too weak to do real damage. That is not the case though.
You see I can easily hide under a table, locker, or a small space that taller people will have trouble getting towhich is a good advantage. Plus, aiming for the knee caps of taller people is very easy, and putting them in a headlock is easy if you get picked up by a taller person, and can get to their throat without them pushing you off.
I also target shoot in my spare time, and that is my way of leveling the playing field if you will. I have learned to utilize my surroundings, and finding objects to stand on if I cannot reach the object I am trying to get. Having a boyfriend that is 6”3 helps me to reach things that I normally cannot get down unless I stand on something. I have to sit on things when I am driving, so I can see over the steering wheel. I would not have it any other way though because that is who I am. People have called me a midget, troll, gremlin, short, and little.
I used to let it get to me, but I do not anymore. I had to take shots as a child because my growth hormone stopped working. Me being short is not my fault either because it is genetics, and then I stopped taking the shots because it just was not worth it to go through the pain in order to be taller. It is not worth it trying to be someone that I am not. If it was not for the shots I would be 4”2, and now I laugh whenever someone confuses me for a child. You cannot change who you are, and you should not have to either. Being short is more good then bad, and I honestly would take being short rather then being tall.
I love writing because it is something I have wanted to do since the 5th grade. My first written novel was I put myself in the mummy returns. I have been writing ever since then. I have fun with it because it is like therapy. When I write i can rewrite history, and the stories I have written about vampires and werewolves are cool. i am hoping to get them published to reach out to people like me. I want to entertain people with it as well.
I love playing them I could play them all day, and for hours on end. An idea struck me one day that there are no guides for new gamers that tell about the systems, their controllers, and games. Maybe they need to be explained more I wrote a paper on the various systems with short paragraphs on each. I was thinking of expanding it more. That idea might work.
