Some music for writing

I came across this video again. The visuals and dialogue are awesome. It is nice to see both of them succeeding in their art so many years later. What do you listen to?

Something a little funny…

When I saw this post for “50 Shade of Hay” it made me laugh. I am one of few people I know who has not read 50 Shades of Grey. I am mesmerized by its success in the publishing industry. Did women just fall in love with the main character? Did they see themselves in Anastasia? Maybe one day I will get around to reading it.

Reading…

Currently reading “Savages” by Don Winslow. I haven’t seen the movie and I don’t know if I will. I should be able to post some short fiction in the near future. I am trying trying trying to become a better writer. I shall step out on faith with the land of E-books!

My last post

This isn’t my last post but more of a post talking about my excitement of the last thing I wrote about when I posted last year.  I was planning on reading “Damned” by Chuck P. but I never got around to it because I started reading this book by this French woman and her sex life. I think I’ve picked up an addiction to Biographical novels.

This woman was speaking so casually about her STD infections, gangbangs, anonymous sex, etc. I’ll finish reading that soon and do a review. I have about 100 novels on my Nook, which saves a lot more space than having a 100 novels on my floor.

I’m still working on this whole writing thing in my head. It seems that when life gets hard I can turn to writing to get me through.

Chat with you all soon!

Its Monday & Fear Street was scary

I’m sitting on the train looking out the window and it is so dark outside that I’m unable to see anything on the street. There are small hints of light hanging in the air but the fog that has settled in this area makes everything look sinister. Everyone is so groggy and slow. The energy of the train is still. Not a whisper or a hint of a conversation. When I look out on the dark street I’m immediately transported back to the days when I read Fear Street novels. The covers were the coolest, always something crazy going on in he lives of those hormonal teens. I often wondered why people didn’t just move or condemn Fear street but what’s the fun in that. I’ve never been a horror writer but I’m sure I’ve written scary things at one point or another. Anyway I finished reading Fledgling and More Tales of the city. As much as I would love to review books I feel like it takes me forever to read them. Ordinarily I’d get it done in a week but life doesn’t permit that. What’s everyone working on? I’m still writing….slowly….but still.

Books I’ve read: The Uninvited

Once upon a time I received a book from my grandmother. She gave me a lot of random books she found while treasure hunting in the Goodwill near her home. I think I was around 14 when she brought home the book The Uninvited. I was freaked out by the cover alone. All the little roaches on that hand was so creepy. I had never heard of the author before but this book was permanently in my memory. The story starts out on a warm summer day in a Louisiana Parrish, everything is great and then these killer roaches come along. I don’t want to give away too much about the book but I must say that it was an awesome and quick read. I’ve never really been into horror novels but this one was awesome. I did a google search on the author and found out that he had written a lot of horror novels. I’m going to go out to my local indie bookstore and see if there are any copies of his work on the shelves.
