Weird Amusing Bumps

I have been on a some very weird, amusing bumps on my current writing path.

I normally write about ghost stories, vampire luring karmic victims, abandoned places, and urban legends. I enjoy the horror, the dark lust, the karmic justice, and just the decent history of a good ghost story. Why did the dark evil beings simply become that way . . .

However lately my muses have me writing a light mystery romance.
I’m not sure why? I think I am the least romantic person I know.
I’m practical. . . I rather have a bouquet of pens or candy, not flowers. I HATE to dress up. I refuse to wear make-up or heels.

 If a guy can’t accept me for me, then he can just go away. (I don’t need another disappointment in my life.)

 

I’m getting off my point. I’m working on a romance story, kind of.  However my characters are on two different paths, which is not really a problem I am worried about. BUT. . .   I had to write a scene in which I argued with muses and tried for days to avoid. I had to kill my main female character’s cat. (I’m a huge cat lover and yet my muses said: the cat escaped, things like that happen, and it to build my characters closer.)

I did finally caved in. I didn’t let my muses get detailed thank God, but it was a simple phone call that I toyed over for days. Once I let my muses take over, it was written in less than hour and the band-aid was off and the main male character comforted her.

However has this happened to other writers? Have you avoid muses or a scene because it simply made you feel bad or comfortable?

 

I feel I am growing as writer and simply as person for facing it. I feel I am looking at it from the villain and hero perspective.

Maybe I’m practicing romance for scenes in my vampire novels., fanged monsters can love too.

Note: I do plan to post this light mystery romance story on my wattpadd. (Links on my pinned blog page)

Make Me Scared

I have written several type of genres. My muses take me in all kind of directions. . .

However my first love in writing is horror: paranormal. I enjoyed being scared. It makes your heart pump faster, the adrenaline runs through your veins, and when you come out of it, you are very grateful to be truly alive.

I was going through my active twitter www.twitter.com/rebekah1213 and I found one of my favorite admirable celebrities www.twitter.com.com/Michaelrosenbum and he was mentioning horror movies. Paraphrasing he feels a horror movie should scare, entertain or be fun. (Note: I think the “fun” scary movies should have their own topic.)

I feel there needs to be a good paranormal story (give me some good history), and true scare factor (I want to scream and jump).

It would be an excellent movie if I can NOT predict the next moves. I want a movie that does NOT have the clichés in it.

(Note: I am not a huge slasher fan.)

Movies on his list I agree with

  • Pet Cemetery
  • The Shinning
  • Insidious
  • Candy Man
  • The Amityville Horror
  • Poltergeist
  • Nightmare on Elm Street
  • Child’s Play
  • Orphan
  • The Omen
  • The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 1 (I freaked out with 2 as well)
  • 30 days of Night
  • Silence of the Lambs

 

Movies that really scare me (Not on his list)

  • The Storm of the Century
  • Christine
  • Night of the Living Dead
  • The Saw series
  • Hostel 1 and 2 (Can you believe people can do that?)
  • The Wrong Turn (Most of them )
  • The Farm House

 

Movies with scary elements (There are problems with story or it’s just not scary enough all of the way through)

  • Psycho
  • Interview with a Vampire (To me it was a bit more tame than my vampires)
  • Urban Legends
  • Ghost Ship
  • Rose Red (I really liked the story)
  • 1408 (Short Story was awesome)
  • HousehhHouse of Wax
  • Split ( I needed more story with each personality)

 

Note: There was a contest for Independent horror called the 8 of 8 . . . the top 8 would be shown at a horror movie festival. There were some of those that were pretty good for independent.

I’m still waiting for that ultimate scary movie: awesome story line, avoid clichés, and unpredictable scary movie. Please make me jump and scream in my seat. I want to hold my seat and be afraid to look at the windows or answer my door. (Yes, it’s all in my head, but sometimes simply being scared is just fun.)

 

 

 

Trying (Distraction)

It seems ever since I declared: I’m not looking for someone at the moment and  I am focusing on me and my work. . .  guys have been coming out of the woodwork to hit on me.  (I do NOT not want face-time, I do not want to exchange numbers, I do NOT want to meet, especially when I don’t know you, and I will NOT get naughty on the first meeting. I am NOT a catfish, I am a very real BBW female, but I just do not want a relationship at this moment.)

I’m NOT in a phase of my life to be ready to deal in a relationship.  I mention this in my other blog http://beckyms1213blog.wordpress.com/

If you want to be friends, then keep it online right now. Message me, and I will message you when I can. 

I got an extender as told my my landlord, but then I found out that other clients are over using the wifi so by the time it hits my extender, I barely have internet at all. Sigh.
It took me 25 minutes to post a twitter yesterday, and over two hours to get this blog set up. GRRR.

So right now since my computer works, I plan to focus on my writings. I am a writer; it’s my happiness.

Just for those out there messaging me over and over, it will not change my mind, and I need to focus on me. You WILL NOT change my mind.

My Ideal day

I wake up by 10 am. “Let’s make a Deal” is playing in the background. I make fresh coffee and egg sandwiches.

I write my daily blogs while enjoying breaking and listening to game shows.

By lunch, we go out get a quick bite and get errands and shopping done. (I love to shop, but on days I’m not doing errands, I will organize notes, research topics for my writings, clean a room, or write more. I fit in writing whenever I can.)

We get home and together make a fun dinner. . . Cheese shrimp pasta or steak fajitas.

Then we clean up together and enjoy down time.

My down time is chatting with online friends, listening to music and working on my short stories, blogs, and novels.

Read a bit before going to bed.

Note: For those who say, I write too much, then I say you don’t know me. (And you probably never truly understand me.)

A day without writing, is unproductive say to me.

Camp Nanowrimo Update

I’m flustered, because . . .

  1. My desk lamp got broken.
  2. As soon as I got to 30k my muses stopped
  3. Whether I sleep 1 hour or 10, I still feel exhausted
  4. Every time I try to write in the day, I get interrupted

I did make my goal by 440 words. Maybe tomorrow I’ll reread and see if anything sparks my muses.

Every time. . .

It seems every time I give myself writing goals something always happens. . .

First nanowrimo I got two weeks of migraines

Whenever I give myself a personal goal, I’ve had . . .

  • family issues
  • mental break down (unrelated to writing)
  • I was in a car accident
  • Headaches
  • Sinuses
  • Depression
  • Hand cramps
  • Sleep issues
  • Moving
  • Female issues

However I always seem to manage to get my main word count in. It is what I want. . .

This month not any different, I have my anemia (from endomentrial hyplasya I know I didn’t spell that right, its a fancy term for very heavy female periods) mixed with my sleep apnea. I slept the last 40 hours out of 48 hours. I can’t think straight or get my process muses. They are sleepy too.

I need to stop giving myself personal goals and simply write.

I’m taking today off to see if I get my mind to work on its own. I’m over 17,900 words, so I’m very ahead.

I’m tired. It’s sleep time.
