About Me
I signed up for bigbang season. These thoughts make me happy! Wish me luck.
Original Fiction Big Bang


+ This journal can, and probably will contain the following:
  • Ranting and raving over a broard range of subjects.
  • Fangirl squeeing over such programs as Supernatural, Castle, The Mentalist, Psych, Life, Holmes, Batman, Avatar: The Last Airbender, The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy and many other programs.
  • Completely unrelated information on current writing projects, art work, and my lovely new shiny allotment.
  • 18+ themes.
  • + I do not write for riches, glory or adulation. I write because it's what I do. I write for the rejection. I write to improve.
    + It is my dearest wish to be good enough a writer for my work to be published and on the shelves of bookstores the world over. I am, however, aware that it will not be a fairytale and there is a lot of hard work involved. (My head is not so far in the clouds after all.)
    + I do not believe I should give up my childish delight in simple things. If I am mature enough to run a household, pay bills and work, then I do not actually have to grow up.
    + If I'm not writing, I'm drawing or gardening. If neither of those things, I will be watching TV and writing or drawing.
    + I have abused my body for the last 10 years with junk food, bad sleeping patterns and general laziness. Now I am questiong for a healthier and happier lifestyle. I am already growing my own produce. Soon I hope to improve on my self sufficiency with home made goods - from cooking and condiments to skincare products. All natural. All organic.
    + I froth at the mouth when I see published writers who obviously don't care about their reputation. The occasional misspelling - I get that. It happens. Five misspellings every other page is sloppy! Spellcheck is your friend!
    + I are a nerd. A confirmed (thank you, family) GoogleGeek.
    + I am secretly addicted to trashy novels, just for the lulz!
    + I have conflicting views of romance, thanks to a childhood of reading my Nan's Mills & Boons stories- and my own somewhat cynical outlook on life and people.
    + I'm not nearly as abrasive as I seem. It's just the lack of tonal values.
    + I love my stuffed toy collection.

    Pretentious as it may seem, these are quotes I've come across during my travels that have struck a chord somewhere in the depths of my withered old soul.
    "Words - so innocent and powerless as they are, as standing in a dictionary, how potent for good and evil they become in the hands of one who knows how to combine them."
    ~Nathaniel Hawthorne

    "It is impossible to discourage the real writers - they don't give a damn what you say, they're going to write."
    ~ Sinclair Lewis

    "I keep little notepads all over the place to write down ideas as soon as they strike, but the ones that fill up the quickest are always the ones at my nightstand."
    ~ Terri Guillemets

    "And by the way, everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise. The worst enemy to creativity is self doubt."
    ~ Sylvia Plath

    "Don't tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on broken glass."
    ~ Anton Chekhov
