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
- Candy Man
- The Amityville Horror
- Nightmare on Elm Street
- Child’s Play
- 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
- 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)
- 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.)
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.

I’ve been dealing with sleep apnea issues, (even when I do sleep, I feel like I barely slept. At times I live on 5 hour energy drink shots.)
I have anxiety (I have constant worry and current living situation has me on the edge. I also have what I can zombie insomnia, I can’t sleep, but I can’t focus, grrr. My living situation has me on extremely high anxiety over extreme cleaning in which furniture is to be moved vs timed issues.)
I have extreme mood swings because of this and my painful female issues.
These health issues can get in the way of true bliss. . .writing.
I’m hoping to get my notes organized while all of this cleaning going on. . . Just thinking about it drains me.
Writing is my number 1 passion. I write short stories, poems, novels, and blogs. Genres I’m interested in are but not limited to . . . Horror, paranormal, occult, spiritual, romance, modern, suspense, thriller and drama. (I have worked with some erotica, but with another pen name.)
These are the links to all of Internet me (but the naughty part)
My WordPress blogs
Lights out. Sighs.
The fates must not want me to write at night. . . But my muses work at night the best. . . Grrr. Sigh.
This is the second light I have broken within the last 6 months. I got two desk lamps . . . The first on the clip busted. The second one bust the connector from the cord and what screws in the bulb.
I can’t read my writing to retype on this blog. . . It strains my eyes and causes several migraines. (I cannot afford to fall behind on lay in bed all day. . . I have to help my mom.)
I’m trying to clean and write during the day, but it’s hard to focus.
I hope get a light soon.
I completed Camp Nanowrimo July 2018 with the word count 30,691.
I swear as soon as I just barely got pass 30,000 words . . . it was like my muses stopped. I hit a writing brick wall.
I can write a few blogs, but its like muses saw the up hill hike for part 2 and all said “hell no!” LOL.
I am grateful that I finished part one, and I wrote over 30,000 words by hand.
However even my desk lamp broke, so next month it will be more blogs.
Writing is my Nirvana, but editing is work.
I can hand write or type anywhere I am inspired. As I’ve said before, when I write is when I am most content.
I’m a storyteller and creator. I’m an artist with words. When inspired, writing just comes easy to me, it flows.
Editing is work.
I have a bad habit of not seeing my own mistakes until weeks, months later. . .
With editing I break down scenes, make goals and give myself rewards.
- I edit best between hours of 7 am and noon but only if I had good sleep the night before.
- I have to be in the right mood and mind set.
- Most of muses don’t even like to correct or edit.
I have to give myself rewards for editing because its work. I sometime look more forward to the reward than the work. I also overwork in 90% of my work, so I usually have to cut, and I hate to cut scene.
I hope that I get my computer working soon. (I need another new cord and new fan. Sigh.)
I want to get my work finished soon.
