The Poet’s Corner #1: Isolation

Bugs, crawling along my skin,
Disappearing before I can catch a glance.
Trapped, locked within a bin,
While I dream of adventures in France.

I watch the world, but it doesn’t watch back,
I sit motionless as time passes me.
The walls are closing in,
The air seems to escape my lungs.

So many things have changed,
So much, yet I remain the same.
I claw at the walls, yearning for the light,
Hoping to feel its warm embrace.

Just when the darkness seems to consume me,
A warm hand grips me.
My eyes adjust, and I stare into true beauty,
And feeling loves embrace, I am free.

The Importance of Dreaming

OK ladies and gents, its time for some life lessons. Today I wanted to talk about the importance of having dreams. I don’t mean the dreams you have when you are asleep. I’m talking about dreaming about the future. I’m talking about hope.

As I strive to achieve my goals of becoming a writer that can earn a sustainable living doing so, I think about the things I want to do in the future and use that as a means of motivation. It can be trivial things, like I dream of having year-long passes to Universal Studios and Disneyland. I dream about owning a PS4 and Xbox One. I dream about being able to go out on weekends to hang out with people.

It can be big things too. I dream about moving to my own place either in or near Los Angeles. I dream of having my books adapted into another medium, like a web series, television, or even a film or video game. I dream of finding love. I dream of meeting that special someone, and falling in love, finding that one person that gets you completely and understands what kind of person you are.

Whether your dreams are big or small in the grand scheme of things, they are all equally important, because dreams are what keep us going. They give us the drive to go forward in life. They help keep us motivated and strong. Dreams are a vital part of what makes us human, for dreams are what keeps hope alive, and hope is what keeps us going every day. So don’t forget guys, no matter what it is, always keep your dreams at the forefront of your mind.

What is the importance of dreams to you?

Day 2 of NaNoWriMo is on!

I’m in the thick of it guys. I’ve written another 2,000 or so words so far today, bringing up my total word count for NaNoWriMo to 5269. I’m going to write a bit more later tonight but for now I gotta do some marketing for my other books I recently published.

Character Insight #1: Lisa Etron

Something I want to do on my personal blog is talk about some of the characters I wrote in my books. The first character I want to talk about comes from my best selling book, I was a Teenage Killer. That character is Lisa Etron.

Lisa Etron is one of the most sinister and twisted characters I’ve ever written. In all outward appearances, she is a normal high school girl who is considered the most popular girl in her school. She has the looks, the brains, and the talent that most people strive to have in their lives. However, she harbors the personality of a deranged serial killer, looking to kill for no other reason that the sport of it and the sheer amount of joy she gets from her murders.

In the I was an Evil Teenager series, I showcase the evolution of evil in all it’s forms. In the first book, I was a Teenage Killer, I showcase the mind of an evil person, and show that evil resides in all shapes and sizes. In I was a Teenage Zombie, I showcased how evil can encompass a persona physically, and the toll it takes on the body. In I was a Teenage Demon, the final book in the series, I showcased the toll evil can take on the human spirit, and how that spirit becomes so corrupted by evil that it twists into something unimaginable.

To learn more about Lisa Etron and to follow her adventures, check out my Amazon Author Page and check out the entire series! Be on the lookout for the next Character Insight.

Writing 101: The Creative Process

Whether you are writing a novel, poetry, an essay, or the menu for your restaurant, one of the biggest aspects of writing is immersing yourself into the creative process. Everyone’s process is unique and different than others. For instance, I like to either put on some tv or blast my spotify music  to get into the right head space. The first step in beginning your writing is to find whatever it is in life that inspires you, that gets your creative juices flowing, and delving head first into that pool of creativity. Lesson of the day to all you writers out there: find your inspiration, develop your personal creative process, and immerse yourself completely!
