Sugar Doll Award

Becs from Wicked Ink thought I was
worthy of the Sugar Doll award. I'm not sure why but I'm not questioning it. (Byt the way check her out)

Anyway to claim the award I need to tell you 10 interesting facts about me. Yeah this is going to be hard.

1. I'm incredibly accident prone. Everyday I bump into something, fall or injure myself in some way.

2. Continuing the theme from the last post when I was ten I fell down the stairs and off the 4 foot high landing onto the tile floor. I got two cuts and that was all.

3. I have been cooking for myself, doing my own laundry and generally taking of myself since I was like born. That's what television did to my generation.

4.I have never had any of the common childhood illnesses unless you count the cold. My mom tried very hard for me to get them but I never did. I am afraid for what this means for my future.

5.I read insanely fast. I read Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire in 1-2 days.

6.I have an unusual memory. It is both terrible and wonderful at the same time.

7. When I was about 1-3(my mom isn't sure) I watched Jurassic Park and I laughed at the part when the guy got his head bit off. I was a cool kid but a little twisted.

8. I was a really cool baby as previously stated. I could belly dance.

9.I have a paralyzing fear of insects and spiders. The insects I am most afraid of are dragonflies and butterflies. Stupid sticker saying there were Bee butterflies.

10. I either want to live in Dublin, New York or Tokyo when I grow up. I'm a city girl who likes trees.

Now for the re-awarding to five other bloggers:

1.Monica at Hush

2.Nicole at Nothing News

3.Amaya at Chimeran Falls

4.Vital-Organs at A Dabbler's Revenge

5.S.P. at Scrawling on the Walls

My new trying to be steampunk book.

I gotted the block. Over 20,000 words into the Circus and I got stick. So in what will probably turn out to be a bad decision I started one of my other books.

What I think it's going to be about:A country divided into insertnumberhere regions, each using it's own specific power source and all warring. And then a bunch of important people will die and two kids (always) will have to go on a quest. I'm just not sure for what yet.

What I wrote so far:
“Achew” sneezed the man. “May Azrak deliver me form this accursed cold,” he muttered, wiping his nose and handlebrush mustasche. Mist leaked in through the holes in the windowglass creating the effect of clouds lurking in the high ceilings. A lonely fire burned low at his side. Sniffing he continued writing, his quill pen scratching against the parchment.

“Oh how I long for the gas lights of Jakra. And we have paper instead of this cursed parchment,” he lamented.

Tell me if you like it Internet.


Happy V-day

I know it's the 15th Internet but this is something I have to tell you about.

Yesterday was V-day. Not the over commercialized one or the Saint day but the other one. The one against rape and violence against women. It was started my Eve Ensler in the 1990s and now she has included a new book for girls called I am an Emotional creature

To find out more go to or

Free Barbie!

P.S. I'm going to try to start my secret project today. Might tell you more about it later Internet.

Did I write yesterday?

Yes, yes I did. For the first time in almost two months I worked on my book. I wrote 32 words. Yes I did epically fail. I will try to do better today.

What I wrote yesterday:
"and to make sure all of Loli’s roommates were already dead. She didn’t think she could kill them all and while Loli was sleeping would be the easiest time to kill her."

Unrelated to writing but still important

I was on twitter on evening when @maureenjohnson showed us this:

It's like a dream come true. Maybe I'll make a character that uses a chainsaw like this. See? I managed to work in writing. If you want to ogle this magnificent creation go check it out at

And yes I'm working on my writing. I can't take those blank bars anymore, staring at me, judging me.

A short notice, some stuff that happened to me and a question

I leaned recently (i.e. yesterday but I was too embarrassed to say) that there is no English spelling of author, that is the one of the few words the Americans did not see fit to change. Well I've decided that mis-spelling will be my thing. You hear that future generations! I have taken one more thing from you!

Anyway remember how yesterday I told you about the epic battle of zombies vs. unicorns? Well what else could be an epic battle? Dragons vs. Grocery baggage boys? Werewolves vs. Goblins? Cowboys vs. Vampires? Ninjas vs. Fairies? The Missing Link vs. Witches? The Blob vs. Elves? Dwarves vs. Ghosts? I want you to tell me what you think should be the next epic battle.

My Spanish teacher made us guess what actor she thought was handsome and I was the first person to say Johnny Depp. She has good taste.

And the ever awesome Maureen Johnson made a video:

Zombies vs. Unicorns

Yes we all know the old Vampires vs. Werewolves (so 5 minutes ago) but now an even awesomer battle is looming on the horizon. It is... Zombies vs. Unicorns!!!!!!!!! Personally I'm more a fan of zombie-unicorns myself but to each his own.

To find out more about this awesome battle:

I'm on blogger

I finally have an official blog. I've been meaning to do this since last year, which doesn't mean much considering last year was 2 months ago. but I digress. This will be a blog about me and my writing, but not always at the same time. Until next time.
