So I have been cleaning, organizing and trying to purge unneeded stuff. Well I came across some of my earliest writing. As a child (I mean early grade school) when our teachers would give us a writing topic or told us to write a paragraph describing a picture I would instead write poetry. Yes I know most 6-8 year olds do not usually turn to poetry for description but I guess I was never much of a normal child lol. So I thought I would share some. (Forgive the titles remember I was really young and some were based off a picture I was supposed to describe)
This first one was a writing prompt our teacher asked for while we sat outside. I believe I was 7 or 8ish.
Colors and Sounds of Nature
The baby blue of the sky,
Marshmallow clouds float on by.
Plum purple sunsets,
And the blood red of the sun in the morning.
The violin of crickets and grasshoppers,
Gently play a calming tune.
The wind sounds through the bushes and trees,
Adding its own harmonious vibe to the song of the wild.
Lush green growing dark from light,
Pink and white apple buds.
An acre long bouquet of colors,
Passion pink, royal purple, and vibrant blue.
The whistles of those good morning bird songs,
Always there in the summer to keep you company.
Some scream and others whistle,
But always to say hello.
These are the sounds,
These are the colors,
These are nature.
So my newsletter did not go out this morning to some of the people who are supposed to get it. ugg. Has the world gone evil when I wasn't looking? See what happens when I actually take the time to sleep? lol. Last night I got a full 6 hours! Which is amazing since I have been not sleeping a lot. Great for my writing and finishing up tons of stories I had almost completed but never quite got there but not so great for my ability to function other than writing lol. Oh well for those that do not get my newsletter or were supposed to and didn't I will show you the pretty cover release announcement I chatted about yesterday.
Lola will have a hard time topping my love for this one. Before they were all tied and which one I loved most depended on the day. This one takes the cake. Its my official fave. Its
LOLA HAS COMPLETELY OUTDONE HERSELF!!! THIS IS MY FAVE COVER TO DATE!
Before I liked them all and which was my fave changed depended on the moment you asked me. I have to say this one takes the cake. Not by much mind you I still love the other babies but this one. There is a little something extra special about this one. It is literally the book in picture form. the back of the paperback version shows the worlds collapse, the front Lilia and how the world literally rests in her hands and the decision she must make. I cannot even begin to describe how excited I am. I am uploading them onto Amazon and BN now. They should be available for order soon! Then the buy links will go up!
look at this awesomeness posted on twitter!!!!!!
If amazon decides to like me my new book will be available for preorder soon! It comes out the 12th so no worries if you do not like the preorder system....I myself do not trust anything that is not already out...yes I am crazy lol.
If you have nook instead lucky you go buy it now! To entice you there is a gorgeous cover reveal for you. ;)
Lola is really a genius when it comes to making my books a visual that will capture peoples attention. I love her so much! I am so glad I chose her spec for Taming the Wolf all those months ago when I started looking for a pro.
So when I need to relax and have some silly fun I have lately decided to become obsessed with www.dolldivine.com It is so great! I made myself as an emo, goth Lolita, the pony i would want, myself as a superhero, and so on. I will upload some pics you can join my obsession (or mock me). They have couples and guys alone as well so dont be shy!
You will notice one of the bad ass looking chicks has glasses, yes gave a super chick glasses. There are not enough bad asses in books or movies with glasses....(goes off to write a heroine with glasses). ;)
I love to write. In my spare time I nerd out on manga and anime. I read...a lot. When I am pried away from that I like photography (by that I mean a digital camera that I use to document my family's life... obsessively so). I also like nature. I am told I am like a puppy because if I do not get my daily walk outside I am unbearable to be around.
