My Shining Star

Without you I'm nothing. I swear I am. Without you I wouldn't be where I am. You changed my life. You're my shining star, don't ever leave. I need you to help me through the dark. The mountains are high, the waters ruff, but this love is ours. Do you really love me the way you say you do? 'Cause I can't picture me without you. Do you really feel this way about me? Oh baby please try to see. If the answer's yes then spend your whole life answering it. Answer it for me.

Letting Go-October 18th

My writing prompt for today.
I had to explain a scene.
I chose; a rock concert.
-Owner's Don't Knock

I take in the scene. Let it all soak in. The music blaring in my head; all around me. Everyone's got their hands in the air, jumping up and down. It smells like sweat, beer, and weed.
I'm near the front so I've got a clear view of the band that's up. Everyone seems to know the words. This is so simple. It all seems so easy, getting away from it all. Just living.
The singer asks if they can calm things down; saying a song title. Everyone screams. Obviously it's alright. A girl stumbles into me, muttering 'sorry.' She's completely drunk.
Life like this, it won't be here for long. That's why I snuck out; went to this thing. For memories. Drama, lies, tears; cheers to the teenage years.

One Stinkin Step at a Time...

Hello Avid Writers!

While I haven't written anything prompt wise (I know, tsk tsk...) but I kept my word and started my chapter outlines. I even managed to get my brother's approval on my Order of Events! *Cue cheerleaders and pom-poms* Almost there, but still feels like I haven't done much though a lot of work has already gone into this anonymous child of mine. I've just discovered that it's not the Authors that are Anonymous...its the books the authors write! *growl!* I guess I don't have to come up with a name for the dear anytime soon, but I'm starting to seriously think about thinking about it. When I think I know, I'll put a list of possible names up here for you opinions (I might even do that for some of my character names...who knows?).

And a final piece of fantastic news, Hannah Clark at her blog Hannah L. Clark has posted a 100th post giveaway and the prize is her new book Cobbogoth! She has the first two chapters posted at her website and I about tore my hair out when she left it off! I seriously can't wait for this book!
The link to her book trailer is here. Please give it a look and then run over to her blog as fast as you can! You only have until Saturday to enter her giveaway!

Hope you all have a fantastic weekend!

Writing Prompt For October 6th

Oh my goodness. I'm so sorry for not posting in forever!
This is a writing prompt I did last week. I could write whatever, so I did.
Something I feel strongly about. And that I have a problem with.
-Owner's Don't Knock

In a way, everyone's living a lie. We all have regrets, thoughts, things that we never want to get out. Stuff we'd like to say, do, but know will never happen. Tears that fall in the middle of the night, knowing that only then is safe. You don't want anyone to know you're weak. Writing poems to express feelings you'd like to get out. A certain person you'd like to be. Changes you make for somebody special. No one shows their true colors. I think they're scared of rejection; they'd rather fit in. Be accepted. You know? Most people are hiding something from their past. Something they're ashamed about. Why isn't being yourself enough anymore? Explain. Please.
