Romantic Distraction

Camp NaNoWriMo started April 1st and so far I got 2511 words. . . 

I do not normally post my personal life on this blog, but I am flustered and grateful. 

For Camp NaNo, I am finished a story, I started for NaNoWriMo in 2011. (When I was still with my ex, Tom.) There are some spicy scene between a few of my characters. . . you have to have a dramatic love element in a good thriller.

I will admit I have been lonely lately, as I have not really dated in over a year.

Against my personal blog (http://beckyms1213.wordpress.com) I got back on a few personal sites. (Even if it is just to find some friends, but I am started to believe people are about business or they are fake online.  The real people are actually out living life.)

As much as I love love struggling with the Internet. . . I am just beginning to believe it’s full of distractions and scammers.

I got a personal site and this what I thought was really cute guy messaged me. Of course within ten lines asked for outside chat (like Kik, hang out, or skype.)

Anyway, his answers were long and too poetic. . . they did not feel real so I took a tip from one of my favorite shows “Catfish” and I googled his replies and the first thing can up was a scam site.

So  if you get an answer or text like this. . . (it’s a scammer).

“My ambition is to inspire your beloved woman constantly and stand by my nations I want the peace for the world, to help her to keep the balance between career and private life, just as she would also inspire me to do good. Love is most paramount for me, i need a companion to share my life with, who wants to create a strong family. I want to take long walks with her and share what life has in stall for us both joy and sorrow. I’d like to look up to her as an authority for me, be proud of her, adore her, be supportive, she would have my devotion understanding,kindness, care, calmness, cheerfulness,soul support and my great love. I expect to get all these traits from her too in return, Everyone wants something good for themselves, or don’t you wish yourself well? ”

This was a direct quote I found from a scamming website.

It sucked because his pics were cute. Oh well, I’m grateful now I can go back my regularly schedule program of working on my Camp NaNoWriMo projects.

I’m a writer

download

This week has been up and down. I’ve been fighting both writer’s block and depression (and yes, I think they are linked this time).

I have always had issues with my physical appearance as I am bigger woman. I have tried the exercise and diets ,. . . I will lose 20 ponds here or there, but I still end up gaining it back and then some. I have learned to deal with myself.  So when someone calls me beautiful, pretty, cute etc. . . I will say thank you but I usually blow it off. (As there are usually at least two negative comments on weight compared to the positive.)

However. 

The comments, compliment, encourage comes from my writing truly makes my day!

  • I love when those say they love my writing.
  • They said they enjoyed my writing.
  • When they say they want to read more.
  • When they say my writing touches their soul.
  • When they say they can relate to characters.
  • When they call me a real writer.
  • When they said I will be published soon. (They had more hope than I did.)

Writing comments and compliments mean more to me as physical issues only last so long, but my writing can touch other now and in the future.

More Book Reviews

I had writer’s block so I have been reading more. I enjoy short scary stories. . . here are a few reviews for three of them with links.

True Ghost Stories: Haunted Buildings, Creepy Forests, Spooky Tales And Eerie True Ghost Stories From The Scariest Places

By Jason Keeler

I give it a 5 out of 5 stars.

I am a huge horror buff and I really enjoy the retelling of many of these non-fiction ghost stories.

I enjoy a few of the stories. Some are the origins of some urban legends I know. Others are stories from around the world that I have not heard of until today.

It written well, and it’s very organized. Buildings, Forests, and accidental tales.

I could not put it down: I read it in one session.

I would suggest it for a good ghost story reference book.

I hope to read more of his work.

There are at least 4 or 5 dozen short stories by Drac Von Stroller (Many of them are currently free or at least they were when I downloaded several for my kindle.) Here are reviews of a few. . . (His amazon link is at the bottom of the reviews)

Book Review: Bloody Mary (Urban Legend) by Drac Von Stroller

4 out of 5 Stars.

I enjoy urban legends. I love reading different version, as I feel each version has a piece of truth.  Bloody Mary is one of my many favorites.

This usually happens when teens want to explore.

I just feel it was a bit short; however, I enjoy that Blood Mary actually communicated with the girls.

Just like the end of the story say . . . research the urban legends and the consequences before mocking the spirits.

 

Book review: The Doll By Drac Von Stroller

3 out 5 Stars

It has good twists and good scare factor. Dolls naturally scared me. I wished there was more of a description of the doll. (I could easily see this doll being with other dolls on Doll Island, but that is another story).

As a reader, I felt like pieces of the story was missing.
I still would like to where the weapon is stored while the horror aspect was not going on.
I know there was magic involved, but I would have liked more back story on how the doll was created.
I felt the warning was also too vague.

I like the motto which be careful what you wish for.

Easily Distracted

I am distracted, yes again.

It’s day 2, in my editing, be to honest, I have six hours of editing in, but I look at my editing now. I’m just like meh. (the thing is I have several pieces I can edit and the motivation is just not there. Why is that?)

I am a writer. I hate to edit.

It goes in this order, writing, reading, cooking and somewhere way down the line of me is editing.  (If I had reading friends and money: I would simply pay them to find errors and confusion in my works.)

I love to write, create, and inspire, but right now I am just fighting with sucky wifi.

I was up today by 9 am: dinner was in the slow cooker by 9:45 am and yet now it’s noon and I have none of my editing done. Sigh.

March is going to be a long month.

 

NaNoEdMo Update

I wanted to edit two projects. . . it down to one as I do not have part three of my thriller typed (It will be Camp NaNo in April’s project)

I am working on paranormal book The Whispering Path. It has over 180,000 words (overwritten, I tell the story like in three different ways within the same book.)

 

I love to write. I hate to edit, so I need to make a list of things I enjoy so I can treat myself.

Treats for editing

  1. Watching Youtube videos
  2. Candy
  3. Jokes
  4. Blogging
  5. Short stories
  6. movies
  7. make favorite dinner
  8. Yoworld (facebook)
  9. Go for a walk
  10. Shopping

3 AM I Ideas

So my sleep schedule is off. . . it is now 3 am in the morning.

I was scanning my facebook main page. . . as one of my many distraction as lately.

There was a post to share the link of your first published book.

Here’s my link. . .

https://www.amazon.com/Whispering-Path-Ms-Rebekah-Wolveire/dp/1463674309/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1550045233&sr=8-6&keywords=The+whispering+path

The Whispering Path. (2011)

It was even under my old pen name Rebekah Wolveire

It hit me . . . I know I need to reedit and rewrite (after eight years of learning of the writing career and how to better your novels and such etc). I plan to write and reedit this book and make an e-book this summer.

So this is what happens to me at 3 am in the morning.

So please look for  The Whispering Path in the Summer of 2019. (As long as I do not get distracted.)

My Happy Time

I’ve been dealing with wifi issues. . . so I have time to write and I have no focus, sigh.

My favorite time even now. . . just sitting in front of a screen and getting ready to type.

I loved the time when I was with my ex (may he rest in peace.) The four hours I have while he would sleep (while our sleep schedules were overlap). I would drink my soda or coffee and work on my writings. ( I especially loved it during NaNoWriMo time.)

I wish I could have those four hours by myself at least Monday thru Friday.

I just want to write each day for so many hours and have focus while I have that time. (Currently, I just try to plug myself in to my music and focus so that all those around disappear and I can simply focus on whatever story I am working on.)
It’s my happy time.
