Introducing to my characters. . . 

These are the main character to both my books:

The Whispering Path 

 The Broken Path. 

Lucy is the main character. . . Yes, story involves around her. She has a gift and curse. . . She is a ghost whisperer. She can communicate with the dead and sometimes they are nicer and more grateful than the living. She is trying to find her place in this world, but things always seem to get complicated. 

Valin is her complicated half boyfriend, half friend, but full drama king. He always seems to find trouble, even when not looking. At first, he liked how she allowed him to be himself, but his obsession such as ghost hunting and dealing with different spiritualities, change him. (He is drawn more to his own dark side. He has used Lucy’s gift to get attention.)

Lyric is her crush and first half boyfriend. He is there more when it’s convenient for him. He knows she is crazy about him, and uses it to his advantage. He; however, trusts Lucy more anyone. They have a bound with the paranormal after his first girlfriend Daisy died while he and she were in high school. He is the very moody artist type who puts alot of his feelings in his art, drugs, alcohol, and sex. 

Paige is Daisy cousin who looks similar to Daisy and pulls in Lyrics interest, but then he gets flustered when she doesn’t act like her cousin. He feels if he leaves her, he will leave Daisy. She knows he is in love with Daisy and since she had a crush on him when she was younger, she uses her cousins similar looks to her advantage. They stray apart,  but stay together for their kids. 

Verona is wife to Vincent. They were together since high school, and neither one seen themselves with anyone else. Verona dated Valin first, but then meet his friend Vincent and the rest was history. She gets off having sex in public.

Vincent was madly in love with Verona at first sight of her thigh high black boots and gothic look. He loves the fact that she is into everything he is drinking, weed, ghost hunting, watching sports drunk, parties, and lots of sex. Vincent and Verona are always in Valin house and store more than their own. 

Autumn Lucy’s ex best friend high school. She put drama, gossip, and boys over her best friend. They parted and Autu,n got pregnant her senior year. They have not looked at things the same afterwards. 
Why I say half boyfriend’s? I feel that the relationships she has with both Lyric and Valin are not complete. Valin is more complete  than she is with Lyric, but secretly she wants Lyric more.

Flustered 

I finished my catfish story. (for those who are not sure what I am talking about . . . Catfish is a TV show on MTV in which one long distance couples who are questioning their partner about why they haven’t met, usually get the chance. . . But there is usually a catch. Nev and Max are the hosts after it happened to Nev. )

Catfish is someone pretending to be someone else online or lying about who they are. Catfish from urban dictionary

I believe I was in blocked catfish story. I chatted with this guy for over a year . . . he helped me through a lot, but we lived in different states and we’re both going through a lot of drama in our lives. However one day he calls me up, says see other people, and then good bye. When I wanted answers, he blocked my account. I believe he wasn’t telling me the entire truth about himself and that is why he was catfish. 

So I thought I would get creative and write an ending to try to give me closure. My muses took me through some twists and turns, but by the time I finished the story. . . I was still into him, lonely, heart broken, and flustered. (I really am a writer when pictures and words made fall in love.)

I plan to type this story up when I get my computer fixed as thst it is 25 pages long. (Yes, hand written.) 

I guess I need to look at it this way, he was there when I needed someone, and it made an interesting, twisted, story. 

People Series: Non-Supporters: Non-wr

3. Non-writers

They are those who don’t usually read or write very much unless they have too. They avoid it like a plague, and they have no idea why writers and readers enjoy it so much.

They don’t understand why you are writing so much. . . the list is really endless. . .

  • Therapy
  • Enjoyment
  • You love to tell a good story
  • You feel connected to your character
  • You have a talent for words
  • Expression
  • You feel you need to write as much as you need to breath
  • The list goes on

They feel writers sometimes make no sense and are in a book or the computer way too long. It’s like an artist trying to explain a Picasso painting to a chest player who only see logical strategies and numbers.

A writer sees the world in a different way than those non-writers. They see the world as a story to be told or idea to be expressed. They are an artist with words as their paint.

Not all Non-writers, are non-supporters, but some just cannot relate. I have been asked “How can you sit the computer so long?” or “You really just wrote 2,500 words in the last three hours, how?”

I can sit at my computer and type and write and read like a video gamer can sit in from the TV or computer screen and play for hours at a time.

What gets me when is when a non-supporters: non-writer is completely against writing/reading.

The ones that put me down: with gut-punching quotes. . .

  • “You write or read too much.”
  • “It’s not steady or stable.”
  • “You are NOT out doing something. . .”
  • “You are wasting time on the computer.”
  • “Why aren’t you living your life?”
  • “Have you gotten a REAL job yet?”
  • “Why are you ignoring everyone?”
  • “You really think you are going to make a lot of money doing that?”

They kind of mix in with questioners.

Remember a novel does NOT get finished in one night. It takes time and dedication. It’s a lot of work to write, edit, rewrite, and edit. . . that is even before getting it in a publisher’s hands.

 

Most writer’s do NOT make millions and do NOT become super famous over night either. They should have some kind of support, because it hard to get out there.

People Series: Non-supporters: Questioners

2. Questioners.

They are people who keeping asking questions about your work and when you plan to get publish that they start to make you doubt yourself. Then you start to question yourself.

  • Is it really stable to make money writing a book?
  • How long do you think it will take?
  • Did your editor get all of your mistakes?
  • Are you sure you going to finish this?
  • How many publishers have you talked to?
  • Are you sure you want to do this with your time?
  • Are you sure you enjoy this?
  • What is is about?
  • Haven’t vampire, werewolves, ghosts, sex etc been done to death?
  • Are you sure it’s good?

The questions that really get to you start with “Are you sure” those are the questions that plant doubt within you. . . make you question yourself.

  • Am I good enough?
  • Will I get get published?
  • Will people actually read and like my work?
  • Should I really be writing?

Doubt goes into guilt and then guilt goes into fear. . . and next thing you know you are in therapy with writer’s block.

You need to let yourself know that there will be these people in your life. Use them to keep things in check instead of letting it get to you.

Instead of doubting yourself try to use the questions and making then into goals.

Is it really stable to make money writing a book? It can be, but you can do side jobs or part time work to have some money so you can write as well. You also make money writing. . . there are online contest for short stories or some magazines that take articles.

How long do you think it will take? It depends on how inspired you are and how determined you. Make mini goals. . . like within the first two weeks to have up to chapter 4 completed or a certain word count.

  • Did your editor get all of your mistakes?
  • Are you sure you going to finish this?
  • How many publishers have you talked to?

Just deal it when it happens. I do recheck my and other work, because I am that much of a control freak.

  • Are you sure you want to do this with your time?
  • Are you sure you enjoy this?

You would NOT be doing this, if there was not some kind of enjoyment in it. If you enjoy something, then it is NOT a waste of time.

What is is about? If you have to explain your story; they are not listening or they are confused.

Haven’t vampire, werewolves, ghosts, sex etc been done to death? Write what you like or know, others will enjoy it too. They are cycles in their fads. . .

Are you sure it’s good?

This question is worst question out of all them. . . this is the one that causes the most doubt. You need to break yourself from the haunting voice that echoes this question in your head like a very bad ghost. When you are writing do NOT think about how good or bad it is.

When writing draft one ultimate goal is to finish the work/novel/story etc.

Focus making things better to understand and to read when you edit your work a million times over.

Again do not people like this get in your head, just use them to help your goals and focus.
