Dear fellow 5 followers!!!
you are amazing, it felt great saying fellow 5 followers instead of 'invisible' followers!! haha.
Now, you're probably wondering what the title means, right?? (does the raspberry in your face) not going to happen until you read all of this blog post! After that, you'll sit back and think, "Hmm..now that you think about it - they are connected!!"
First off, i would like to apoligize for not posting in a while, my papaw broke his back while falling down the stairs...and, well, let's just say that was a 'trip' I really didn't want to take. (No pun intended..) *sarcasm* =D
Update from the last post: My laptop IS fixed..well, not really!! I just got this really cool thing that you stick in the USB whatchamacalit of your laptop - then WALLA, you have instant wireless internet access...after you install the stupid software and take the stupid survey from the CO.!!! So technically speaking, my dear old laptop's days are numbered.
Also, my school is back in session after about a month of no school due to inclement (SNOW!!!) weather!! Yay! Now we're going to be going to school LONG after most kids are outside swimming the warm weather!! Or in my case, outside in the mountains writing?? Aren't I special?? Or in my words, 'ain't i special?'(Kentucky slang, ya'll wouldnt understand!!)
I bet you're wondering if I'm using my laptop right at this precise moment?? My answer...NO.
Why?? It's all my Obsessiveness with Harry Potter's fault, it wasn't me, I PROMISE!! You see, I'm getting my room re done in Harry Potter....and Percy Jackson! Well, also a cross with a girl praying!! so..yep!
GOODBYE disgusting 6 year old purple butterflies decor. - hello (nerdy) teenage black and maroon gryfindor EVERYTHING!!
Guess what I also get for my 14th B-day?? I WRITING DESK!! not just any regular desk, mind you - a WRITING DESK!!! It's going to be great, i tell you - GREAT!! FINALLY A PLACE I CAN CLUTTER MY WITH MY WRITING IDEAS!! gosh, that's what I've always wanted...haha! What 13 year old wants something like that..not very many i guess!!
Okay, my ex boyfriend is OUT of the hospital..he has been for awhile... =/ And rumor is around my pitifully small school (okay, well, technically it's coming from an untrusted source) that he wants to be more than my ex - the jerk face was lucky just to get the first chance!! He broke my heart and the promise he made to me, and he expects me to run back like all the girls in the mooshy gooshy romance novels out there?? I DON'T THINK SO BUDDY!!
Well...my novel on Inkpop.com is doing fairly well..it's not in the top 5...yet! But it wil be! Trust me, it has to be! haha. Also, I'm going to start editing the next 3 chapters!! yay me!! *sarcasm* I hate and love editing..I hate it because i re read through my old stuff and see how much i sucked a week ago. I love it because I'll re read through it and read through the stuff i read a week ago and wonder what I could do to make it better. But I really hate editing because 'usually' (which is TEENAGE code for WHAT AM I KIDDING? I BETTER JUST RE-WRITE THE WHOLE DARN THING!)I end up re-writing the parts that extremely suck and make them better. So I guess you could say the first draft is NOTHING compared to what it is NOW!!! yes, I have rewrote the first 9 chapters about 16 times...no - it still isnt perfect.
ANYWAYS! While in a writing Crisis (I refuse to say the 'B' word) I 'usually' vent by writing poetry. Don't ask why - but it works wonders for aching wrists and empty minds. However, I recently found the BEST thing in the world:
Random outbursts of poetry.
works well when you want to freak someone you hate out.
Doesn't require pencil and paper.
It also works well when you are down in the dumps and you really need to vent.
It requires hardly any energy - and you don't even have to worry about sounding stupid.
An example?? Sorry, it has to be RANDOM. I can't just -
damsel in distress
allowed the worthless
dog to undress
her desires to be a poetess.
See? That was a RANDOM outburst of poetry. You can't just take the time to think of these, they have to be random, or else they can't be an OUTBURST. That's why it's sooo stress relieving!
As i was saying - I thank all of my (5) followers for clicking the little 'follow' button somewhere around this site!
I also hope you see how ALL of this is related somehow! Still havent figured it out?? I'll tell you!
I haven't posted in awhile because of the weather, my papaw and school. My papaw BROKE his BACK because the weather was SNOWy! And i haven't been to school because of 12-14 inches of snow.
During that time of snow - I got my USB adapter - only to find on the internet this really awesome HARRY POTTER bed room whatchamacalit.
The next day, I caught my EX BOYFRIEND staring at me all googly eyed while going to 3rd period. It brought back the good times...as well as the ones where my HEART was BROKEN in half.
That gave me inspiration to update my NOVEL and edit the next 3-4 chapters! It also got me into Writer's B****.
That then led to RANDOM OUTBURSTS OF POETRY. I began reciting poetry...randomely....
SHEW!! sorry about such the LONG blog!! It's been a month, so you all deserve it!
I realllyyyy hope you see the whole connection! 'Cause it made PERFECT sense to me!!
From my older sister's computer:
- Carter Storm
- I am a born again Christian. God gave me some pretty hackin' awesome talents if you ask me. I love anything creative. I LOVE to read, write and act. I've been in countless school/church productions, I've wrote multiple short stories and I'm currently in the editing stage of my first novel in a trilogy! My inspiration comes from everywhere. However, I have found that I do write better in depressing situations. Haha. I'm currently teaching myself french. I've already mastered two languages. English and sarcasm. :D I live in a tiny town, where your dreams are smothered in the Appalachian Mountains. You may have heard of this town. It's the setting in the T.V. show: Justified. :) Pleasent? Right? Not. Anyways, this is MY story. My life. My journey. It's not up for sale, it's not for rent. I have a whole life ahead of me. So you can either like it or hate it. Either way, you're gonna have to deal with it. Over and out, Carter Storm.
