New Hair, New Me

IMG_1844

Yes I got hair all did up. Well I did it, but whatever. I love it. It’s all new an fresh.

With my new hair comes a new me. I’ve found a new level of confidence. I always have loved to be blonde, but I hate the flat platinumness some have. So it’s safe to say I’ve found the perfect mix for me. I’ve got some golden tones, with some platinum streaks, and a lil bit of red an brown through the bottom.

To top off the amazing ness that’s my new hair an confidence, I’ve got the love of my life back. I couldn’t be happier about that. He’s the only one I’ve really fell in love with ever, and we were able to work through our problems. Which is really his parents problems.

So my last week has been perfect. How are y’all doin?

Confessions of a Teen Writer

To be completely honest I’m just blah. I used to be so into my writing. Like I loved it in eight grade I carried around a huge bag of note books an pens in school. I wowed all my teachers, an got out in writing contests. Things are so much different now.

When I first started this blog I had picked up an old project that barely had a chapter to it. My situation changed again, an I stopped writing. Then my mom comes into the picture thinking she knows everything an harasses me constantly about my writing. It’s very uncomfortable.

My mom is basically trying to relive her life through me. She’s actually trying to write a book, but it’s so full of self pity I won’t even look at it. I’ve told her I’m not ok with it, an that I would like her to stop. But she doesn’t. That’s the real problem with how much writing I can get done.

I used to be able to turn out 2k a day easy. Now I want to write, I do, but when I do I feel like I’m being forced to do something. I don’t like that at all. It’s a struggle for me to find a happy medium, because I would like to finish my projects. To publish everything myself. I would love that.

At the same time I need to do it when I am ready. Not because my mom wants me to. It started out as something for me an she’s trying to get in my shit.

Ugh. Rant over. I just needed to say that. It bothers me all the time, along with other things.

Snow Driving

Let me tell you, I hate driving in the snow. I’ve been driving most day in this mess, and it’s been horrible.

Here in southern maryland we got about 6 inches of snow. The roads are nothing but ice, an there’s nothing but idiots out on the roads.

I wouldn’t have a problem with driving around in the snow if it weren’t for everyone else out on the roads. Ugh.

Editing Away

So today I’m tackling the beast that is editing. About a year ago I wrote 30k+ of a manuscript, and because of everything that’s happened I had to let it sit. Yesterday I got the whole thing printed out.

So today I’m editing the damn thing. I’m loving it. The whole process, and getting back in touch with my characters. I’ve missed them.

Anyway that’s what I’m up to!

Music & Writing

Do you listen to music when you write? I’ve heard different people say different things about the topic. Like that it distracts them, or it could get them in the mood.

Personally I love to listen to music while I write. I new some kind of background noise, I hate quiet. What I listen to depends really of my mood, an not really on what I’m writing per say.

But that’s me. Do you listen to music while writing?
