The Spark Inside - Doctor

July 1st, 2007 (11:08 pm)
current location: Las Vegas

Hola lovelies. I'm in awesome and amazingly hot Vegas at the moment, but I took the time to check my email and also found out that my theme for The Spark Inside was the first to be posted.

I am posting it here, and I am also going to post it at my website. My theme was falling in love with a best friend and the three things I had to include were: ripped jeans, Where's Waldo, and "Fiesty, aren't we?". I really hope you guys like this. Like any other thing I've written, it took time to grow on me, but I'm very happy with it now, and I hope you guys feel the same.

I have to say a thank you to Kristy and Ivey (which Miss Ivey, I have a story for you about Keno) for being so kind to beta it for me and let me know what they thought of it to help ease my fears. :)

After I get back from Vegas, I'll be focusing on getting the next chapter of Places finished and posted. :) In the meantime, enjoy!

The Spark Inside

June 26th, 2007 (04:37 pm)
current location: bedroom
what's on: The Animals Were Gone - Damien Rice

So my piece for The Spark Inside is due the 1st of July, and I've been spending the last few days trying to finish and revise it. :) Since I'm close, I decided to post just a little of the beginning. Right now it's about 7000 words, and it still has a little ways to go. It may end up being a bit more or less after editing.

Brittney is going to post the stories by theme, a theme a day. So I'm not sure when the full piece will be posted, but once it's posted on there, it'll be posted in its entirety at my site as well. My theme was best friends falling in love, and I had to include three things, but you don't get to read about those yet because they don't show up until later in the story. :) But I had to include ripped jeans, "Fiesty, aren't we?", and Where's Waldo? Let me tell you, I had fun coming up with ways to fit them in. :) I really enjoyed writing this piece even though sometimes I wanted to strangle it. hah

Anywho, here's a little bit of it, and I must admit, what I've posted isn't too terribly exciting but it's something. I'd love to post it all right away, but of course I can't do that just yet. As for a title, I have a few running through my head, but I have yet to decide on one. But enjoy the little snippet, my dears!

Yesterday you asked me to write you a pleasant song; I'll do my best now, but you've been gone for so long.Collapse )

Update

May 6th, 2007 (07:47 pm)
current location: bedroom

This may not be the update you necessarily want, hah, but I've been working on a new story in the last few months. I was waiting though to give you guys a sneak peek until I got my website, This Modern Romance, set up. This last weekend, I spent the time working on the webspace for my new story, Back to You, over at my website, and it's all set to go. I posted some character pictures, a couple songs to the soundtrack and a sneak peek of the first chapter because well, it's not totally finished. lol That's just how I roll. So if you're interested, check it out. :) I hope you like it!

Back to You

And in other news, I have been working on the next chapter of The Places You Have Come to Fear the Most over the last few days. So hopefully soon! Keep your fingers crossed.

New Website

April 22nd, 2007 (05:21 am)

Hi, my loves! I'm still alive. :) Good thing, right? Anyway, I hope everyone is doing well! I'm sure the school year is starting to come to end for most (myself included...yay for graduation!!! Kinda. lol), and I'm sure ya'll are living the hectic life, like myself. Fun, isn't? But just think; it's almost over. Yay again!

Sorry. Forgive me. It's 5:30am here. I've no idea why I'm still up. Well, actually, I do. I've been hard at work on my new site, and guess what? It is all finally up and running. I'm super psyched right about now because that was a project and a half, and I'm exhausted.

Anyway, that's my/our new home. :) I'm still going to keep this LJ though. I'll post here when I update at the site with a new chapter. I may even post the chapters here and at the site for a little while and then switch over to just the site. We'll see how things go. Even I'm weary of change...no matter how small. lol

But I'm also keeping the LJ so you all can comment here if you wish. As new chapters of Places come, there will be a link at the bottom of each chapter to bring you back to LJ if you wish to comment here. Or there is a guestbook at the site for you to comment in as well, and I can reply at the guestbook. Which was something I was very happy about.

No new chapter of Places yet, but I'm sure that's no surprise to you. I suck; I'm sorry. The update over at the site talks a little bit about it.

Anyway, go check it out! Bookmark it. I hope you guys like it. :) Love and miss you all! And good luck with the end of the school year and all your projects and finals!

how i'm feeling: inspired

All right, first off, I've been nominated over at Feel What I Dream Awards in the following categories:

Best Comedic Author
Best Author Overall
Best Couple : Jolyn and Zac
Best Main Character : Jolyn
Best Zac
Best Drama
Best Unfinished

Very exciting, yes! So thank you to whoever nominated me! I was quite excited to see that. :) Voting starts April 8th, and so if you feel inclined to vote, there are some amazing stories nominated.

Secondly, after talking to some fellow hanfic writers and friends, I've decided that I think I'm going to try my hand at my own website. Becca has offered me my own subdomain, and so we're going to see how well I do with that. I'll still have this LJ though, and I'll make a post when I update. :) So don't worry.

Anyway, I now face the dilemma of coming up with a name...so it'll be...http://MYNAME.break-my-fall.org...this is where I would love your help. I did some searching through lyrics, and under the cut is a list of ideas. Your input on which you like best or any suggestions you have would be greatly appreciated.

IdeasCollapse )

Never fear; I am working on the next chapter of Zolyn. :) I'm hoping to have it finished sometime this month. lol After next week, things should slow down quite a bit for me school-wise, and graduation will be here before I know it. So I'll have even more time if I don't have a job right away. lol

how i'm feeling: bouncy

Hi, my dears. How are you all doing? Lovely, I hope! And I hope you all are getting some of the gorgeous weather we had in the beginning of the week. Spring is on its way, and it's beautiful. I, for one, am quite excited.

Sadly, I have no update. I know; I suck. I'm working on it. I promise. :) However, I wanted to let you guys know that over at JSOR (Just Shy of Reality) they are doing a new thing that's called "Author Spotlight". Every month or few weeks, whatever it is, they spotlight a Hanfic author, and I'm the first one. :) So Brittney and Becca came up with a list of questions for me to answer about my writing and what not. That is now posted, and others are welcome to ask me whatever questions they wish. If it's something you feel like checking out, I highly recommend it, and I highly recommend joining the board. We have a good time over there, and if you join, take the time to nominate some other amazing authors for the spotlight. :)

Also, I've been giving more and more thought to switching over to an actual website. I have a few other stories in the works, and I just keeping about all the things I could do with an actual website. I would able to add a "Coming Soon" section and what not and give you some sneak previews of the stories I've been working on besides The Places You Have Come to Fear the Most and the sequel. I just feel like it would get too cluttered around here. I know long ago Kristy offered to host me, and I'm hoping that offer is still open if I choose to take it. :)

The only issue I have with that is that one, I'm not html savy. At all. Second, I most likely wouldn't be able to respond to the feedback you guys leave, and that's something I really love doing here.

So I'm just wondering what your thoughts are on that. I would really like to know what you guys think. It's important to me, and so any input or suggestions are greatly appreciated. :)

The Ugly Truth Awards

sick

how i'm feeling: sick

I would have done this sooner, but I've been busy with exams, and then I got sick. Ewww! So I figured I do a little post before my Nyquil really takes me over.

Voting on The Ugly Truth Awards closed the other day, and thanks to all who voted for me, I placed in every category I was in. So yay!!!

I won first place for Best Opening Scene and Best Friend (Sophia) and runner-up in Best Zac, Best Laugh Out Loud Moment (Chapter 7), Character You Most Relate To (Jolyn), aand Not Updated Enough But Should Be.

So I have to say a big thank you to those who voted for me and to Miss Kristy (zorianna) for nominating me. Thank you, lovelies, for everything! It means the world to me. :)

List of winners can be found here.

Awards will be added to the profile page when they're finished, and be on the look out for an update sometime within the next few weeks, hopefully.

what's on: Amtrak is For Lovers - Houston Calls

Hola, lovelies! Just wanted to drop in and let you know I'm still alive. Good thing. Good thing. Yes.

Anyway, story is still going. blah. blah. blah. Not sure when the next update will be. I have a couple of exams and papers within the next two weeks. So getting caught up on all of that is my first priority even though all I want to do is write. Why does it always work out that way?

Once all that has cleared, I'm going to start up on the next chapter. It's probably about half way finished. The rest involves thinking about the rest of the story on my part, and I've just been too lazy to figure all that out in the past month. Sooooo, like I said, once everything is cleared with exams, I'll start on that. I would like to have an update out before spring break (starts March 10th for me), but I can't guarantee anything.

If that doesn't happen, come spring break, I'll be writing and trying to get an update out for you guys. I'm broke, and so I'm going nowhere fun for break. I'll just be chilling around here. I know it seems like a long ways until an update, but trust me, spring break will be here before you know it. :)

Anyone else excited for the new album? Took me a bit, but I won't get into that. :P

Thanks dears for understanding and sticking with me! Love you all. Stay safe, and have a happy Valentine's day!

Hi, my dears. How's everything going for everyone? Those of you in school, I hope finals are going/went well for you. As of tomorrow around 11am, I will officially be finished with first semester. Then I only have one more left, and I'll be graduated! Woooo!!!

Anyway, since Christmas break is just around the corner for me, you know what the means for you...an update!!! Yay!!

My goal is to have an update for you guys within the next week or two. Obviously since the holidays are just around the corner along with my sister's birthday, this coming week will be pretty busy for me. But I will try my best. If the update doesn't come before Christmas, it will come within the next week after Christmas.

I'm super psyched to get back into writing. I really can't wait to give you guys some updates and hear your thoughts. :)

So just wanted to give ya'll an update. Enjoy your holidays, and merry Christmas!

how i'm feeling: calm

Hi, lovelies!

Okay, so I know it's been months since I've updated, and I'm sure most of you thought I fell off the face of the earth. Some of you may have given up on me and not care about this. lol Which is cool. I don't blame you.

Anyway, surprise, surprise, I don't have an update. Buuut, I haven't given up on the story. I want you to know that. I've just taken a long ass and unexpected hiatus. My inspiration and motivation went on vacation without informing me first.

As I told Hayley earlier, I've spent the last few days finalizing the story and plot and giving it some structure. The next chapter has been started and is probably about halfway or more to being finished. I would love to have an update for you guys sometime soon, but I have no idea if that'll happen.

Otherwise, come Christmas break, my goal is to be a writing machine so I can give you guys some updates! I'll be doing nothing else over X-mas break so I should have plenty of time to write.

I have every intention of finishing this story and possibly writing a sequel. Jolyn and Zac have a lot left to tell of their story, and I feel they deserve to have an ending instead of being suspended in the air of the fiction world.

In other news, I'm close to finishing a short story. It's a Taylor one, and so hopefully that'll be up within the next week. And I also have another short story I plan to finish...the sequel to the one I posted here forever and a day ago.

So that's a little update for you guys. If you care. lol I want to thank all the people who have stuck with me and have kept pestering me and telling me to update because seriously, it's you guys that keep pushing me to get an update out for you all. You definitely deserve one! So thank you!

Holy wow people! You all continue to amaze me!

THANK YOU!

The winners were announced today for the Feel What I Dream awards, and I certainly was not expecting win anything, especially since I haven't updated in so long and because I was up against some awesome authors and stories. But you guys proved me wrong...happily! lol

I won every award I was up for, and I also received runner-up for Voter's Choice. It seriously means so much to me that you all think my story is still deserving to vote for, and like I said, there were some amazing authors and stories I was up against that I thought for sure would win and they should have. lol But I'm so happy that you guys voted for me! I really appreciate it. You guys are the best! Thank you so much!

You can see the winners here.

Also, stop over to The Words I Wrote and congratulate Kristy on all the awards she won! She kicked some major ass, and she totally deserved it! YAY! Kristy, I'm so happy for you!

In other news, I don't have an update. I'm seriously slacking, I know. I'm really sorry, but the fact that I just won kinda made me all giddy and motivated to update for you wonderful people. You certainly deserve it after being so patient with me. :)

The next chapter is about halfway finished, and I will be trying my best to finish it before the weekend or at least next Tuesday, which is when I start school. Keep your fingers crossed!

Thank you again everyone!

On a side note, who else shares in my depression that Kaylee over at Typical Star retired from the hanfic world?

So there will be no updates for a week at least. I will try my absolute best to have chapter for you not long after I get back. I've the next chapter started, but not far enough for me to finish it by tomorrow. So like I said, I will try my hardest to have an update after I get back.

Hi, my lovelies. Just wanted to give you a little quick update.

The next chapter is very close to being finished. There's one part that needs a few paragraphs added/touched up, and then there's one scene that needs to be filled out. If I didn't have to be up at the butt crack of dawn (5am) for work, I would probably be able to finish it tonight. But alas, I need to be going to bed asap.

If you're lucky, I may have it finished and posted tomorrow night. If not tomorrow night, then definitelythis weekend.

I know I didn't get this update out as soon as some people, and definitely myself, may have hoped. But hey, at least it's not another two months. :D

As for an update, still not sure when it'll be ready. I have today off, and so I hope to work on the chapter today. If I work hard, I could probably finish it today. But I don't know about that. lol Hopefully, sometime this week though there will be an update. :D

what's on: Full House

Hola beautiful people!

Well, today marks a year from when I posted the very first chapter. So after a year, I'm still online and still writing the story, which is a good and sad thing. lol Normally I quit after a couple of months and leave the story unfinished, but I've been determined to finish this story. I might say this is my favorite I've written. If not, it's a very close second. So the fact that I have stuck with the story this long says a lot. lol

It's kind of sad that in the sense, a year later, I'm still writing the story and am only 20 chapters in. Sure says a lot about my updating skills. ;)

I just want to give a HUGE thank you to all of those who have stuck with me this long and will continue to stay around as long as I do. :) It means so much to me that you all enjoy my story. Essentially, writing my story is for me, but the fact that I can share it with other lovely people and have them like something I wrote means the world to me and is definitely a nice bonus and keeps me motivated to keep going. You guys seriously are the best for sticking with me through all my hiatuses and randomly updating ways. I could never tell you how much it means to me, plus the fact that ya'll liked my story so much that I actually won awards! lol

I've never won anything for my writing before then, and some may say that it's just hanfic and they're just stupid awards, but to me, they're not. Especially, since to me, my story is more than just a hanfic. Yes, it stars the boys of Hanson, but in my mind, there's more to it, and it's just so nice to know people enjoy my writing enough to vote for me. :)

Now, I was hoping to have an update for today, even two, to celebrate. lol Buuuuut, I don't. The next chapter is started. I plan to work on it tonight, and I think you all will enjoy it. It's a nice, cute chapter so far.

Since I don't have a chapter, I thought I would let you all know that right now, doing a sequel is a go. It's tentatively titled Let Love In, borrowed from the song by the Goo Goo Dolls by the same name.

I fell in love with the song when I was listening to a special pre-release thing on VH1 and knew that the cd would be part of my collection as soon as it was out. The song, in my opinion, is beautiful and embodies a lot of what Jolyn and Zac are and their story. It fit perfectly in my mind, and it has fueled my mind with ideas, as has most of the album.

It was a tie between Stay With You and Let Love In as the title, but right now, I'm staying with Let Love In, but the title and everything may very well change depending on how the story ends. lol I've had the ending planned out for awhile, and if I keep it that way, it'll stay as it is now. If not, then a different title and theme song may come about.

We shall see. :)

Anyway, I've uploaded the song for you to download if you'd like.

Let Love In

Enjoy, my dears, and hopefully you will see an update from me soon.

Thank you, my loves!
