it seems i have gotten a like from an actual scifi writer. That really makes my day. I have been in such a funk lately. No ideas falling from the brain today. nothing is there..which happens once in a while. Now to get rid of this, not sure what to do. Writer’s block can be caused by so many different things.

oh well back to the drawing board. Maybe i will ust go gather some more pictures of  supernatural creatures



ok huh?

I am completely stumped about adding blogs to my Scififan761 page. I thought it was working before but now that I have had the chance to look at it, nope, didn’t work.

On to another subject, Last night’s season finale of Grimm. It was Epic. All the things I hoped would happen did, surprisingly so. I am upset about Renard so willingly choosing Black Claw over his friendship with the Grimm, Detective Nick Berghart. Now the thing about this situation that i hated the most was the death of Meisner. He was prime in rescuing Diana from the king. He was supposed to be keeping her safe in Hadrian’s Wall but apparently there was and is a leak.

Another fan favorite, Eve, was injured and dying. So nick took the magical artifact he and Monroe found in the Black Forest and touched it to Eve’s stab wound. the wound started to heal but something else happened. It cured Eve, but turned her back into her former self.

This is going to change the show completely. Nick is in love with Adylan, a former enemy and the mother of his son, Kelly. Adylan is also a Hexenbeist with a child that possess a-freaken-mazing powers. Powers thought to be too strong for a child of her age. Little Diana actually saves the day. She controlled her father, who was going to let Bonaparte, leader of the Black Claw, kill Nick. She used her power to make her father stab him(Bonaparte ) through the heart ending him.

i was blown away by this evil man anyway because of what he was. Male Zauberbiests aren’t supposed to be that powerful. maybe he was so strong because unlike our dear captain he was a full blooded zauberbeist not a halfling.

I have been watching Grimm since the first season and I must say I love it. it looks like there will be another love triangle. Eve is now gone and so is her power, so how will Adylan react to Nick’s former love being back without her powers? will nick forgive Juliette for the things she did when she was becoming a powerful hexenbiest?

And how can they help Wu who was turned into a werewolf, which is actually a type of Blutbod with a virus. All of these will have to be addressed next season…Once you get into Grimm, its hard not to watch it…

woo hoo!

I am actually feeling a little more confident with this class. My story is a whole different thing. I don’t want this to sound like The Lovely Bones. It is starting to turn into Drop Dead Diva, which I did not want. I think maybe I’ll keep the beautiful lady that my character Natalie keeps seeing, maybe I could have her be a guide or something.

The hardest part for me to write was where she realizes she’s dead. That is something that I don’t know anything about, this is where imagination would come into play.  As far as this picture is concerned, I thought she was a mermaid, but looking at her tail, she is what you would call a naga. this is usually a snake with the head of a man or woman, but i guess if there are different types of mermaids then there’s got to be different types of Naga.

Writing for me sometimes helps me destress. It allows me to take my mind off of my worries and just indulge in someone or something else’s life. It’s my way of saying “Woo Hoo!”

week Four

Ugh, I am kicking myself. I tried to make this infographic and the dang link is not working. Of course I find this out after the due date.  Smh. Well I did manage to get an idea for a new story. Not sure if its been done, but a story from the point of view of a ghost. I believe it was done in the novel, The Lovely Bones, but I am going to give mine a twist. Hopefully my twist and the style I write in will make it totally different from The Lovely Bones.

This idea came to me from an episode of the tv shoes Bones, which I rarely watch.

Another story, another life

Today I was thinking about a story idea that I had. I was having a hard time trying to work out a problem I am having. My character is a telepath and she was turned into a werewolf. She hasn’t told her parents or some of her friends. The problem I am having is how to make my character more believable.

This is when I usually take a break from writing and find pictures that can help me, like the one above

Not today

I usually take the weekends and work on my stories but today I was just tired, due to my six year old waking me up at 7am on a Saturday.

I have a piece of a story stuck in my head about Emily and Jamal White. They are the characters from my story New Life on Watt Pad.

Emily is a witch who married a mortal man, yeah I know it sounds like bewitched but here’s where it get a little different

I came up with this idea from a writing prompt. Emily and her family were the inspiration(imagined of course) for the Charmed tv show. I was bored so I just went with the idea that it had to be based on something. Some what along the lines of Men in Black.

In the world of my stories magic exists to a point. The world in my stories knows about magical creatures and supernatural beings. They even have a town newspaper.

No one knows what the real world reaction would be to a witch with real magic, or a fairy or a mermaid. Could you believe your eyes if you were walking on the beach early one morning and came across a mermaid sitting on a jetty, relaxing in the sun?

what would you do? would you run, would you yell out an expletive, or stay and talk to her or him for that matter.

My story ideas sometimes come from the reaction to a situation like that.Sometimes my idea will come from a song lyric or a picture. Lately I have found other sources of inspiration but not today.
