Character Development: Derek

What he throws away:

lyrics on crumpled paper, thoughts, flyers for events he’s gone to already, abstract concepts, his own internal crazy things that weren’t quite up to par, lists.

A paragraph(ish) hopefully in Derek’s voice:

“…After the movie, we went to this place called Joe’s pizza.  Just a couple other places after that.  It was great to see him.  You really should write something.  Besides, all my work stinks anyway.  Ha.

Another few sentences:  (really in Derek’s voice this time)

“Work stinks anyway.  Since you’re free, why don’t ya come over?  I’d tell you all ’bout that trip to Six Flags if you want.”

Toxic Covered Beauty

“We believe that we invent symbols. The truth is that they invent us; we are their creatures, shaped by their hard, defining edges.”
-Gene Wolfe

You’re a venomous rose
Toxic covered beauty
Thorns dripping with acid
Your poison flows
With continuity
You’re a deadly assassin
Awaiting a new victim
Drawing one in
With your fatal allure
Unaware of your system
The reason they flinch
Is because of your lethal grandeur
Your sickly sweet scent
Is a noxious fume
From vivid lackluster pedals
That are pleasurably abhorrent
Unsuspecting is your victim that you are their doom
That you are a malevolent devil
Your acidic barbs constrict with formidable might
In your captive’s veins the venom will seep
Soon they will lose the will to fight
Then you will notice they can no longer weep
For your toxic covered beauty
Has lured them to sleep

Timey Wimey Science- A Poem

Timey Wimey Science- A Poem.

 

This is how I feel 90% of the time.

Lol

~Winter

I run through the newly fallen snow.

My heart beats heavy in my chest.

I hear a loud thump.  Freeze.  Don’t even breathe.

The cold air is sharp in my lungs.

The forest is still.

I take a risk.  Move.  Turn my head.

It was only the snow from the branches of a tree.

Run.  Faster.  Exhaustion soon.

Lights in the distance.  Village.

I’m not going to be caught.  Turn.

Begin to run.  Wait.

I left it there.

I run back.  Move snow.  Eventually, move dirt.

Dig…  Quickly.  I hear them.

Silently making their ways through.

I am the Wolf.

Today is the first snow.  I was compelled by it to write.

The last day of NaBloPoMo!

~

In my blog, there were 42 posts this month.  :D

I wrote almost 4000 words in my novel.  :)

It’s a pretty big feat for me…  Though others have accomplished even more this month.  :)

In addition to being NaBloPoMo (National Blog Posting Month) it was also NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month).  Really, I think November should just be “NaWriMo”, National Writing Month.

Anywho, to celebrate the end of NaBloPoMo, here’s a song.  :)

Thanks for writing.  Thanks for reading!

And Happy December.  :)

NaBloPoMo: Day 25

Hello my people! :D

~

I am writing a book, as you may or may not know, and it’s hard for some to keep track of what their story really is…  A Novelette?  A Novella?  Simply a short story?  An actual Novel?  Well guess no more!  Here, all you need is Word Count.  :)  I found this one day on pinterest and I had to share this with you.

=3  Hope this helps all of my fellow writers out there!

Ok, ok… & NaBloPoMo

I know I haven’t been posting actual words lately.  Scroll down and you’ll find a bunch of pictures of t shirts & stuff.  XD  So yeah.  Anyways, I wanted to get my butt off the ground and start actually posting again.  I’m going to do NaBloPoMo.  Check out what the heck I’m talking about here:  http://www.wisegeek.org/what-is-nablopomo.htm

If you’re too lazy to go read the link, (as I know so many of you are, admit it!) that’s fine.  I’ll just explain.  lol

 

NaBloPoMo is National Blog Posting Month, a month-long writing exercise that occurs each November.  You should expect at least one post per day for the entire November.  It started in 2006.   NaBloPoMo has grown steadily in popularity. Hundreds of participants entered in the first NaBloPoMo, and every year the numbers seem to increase.

 

So…  Yeah!  :D  I hope that you guys & gals that read my blog will come and comment and say  what you like/dislike and all that good stuff!  :)

I’m off to come up with new ideas for NaBloPoMo!

:D <3 ~ Mousepaw
