I've created a sort of mini-podcast show, and I have one episode up, which is about 5 minutes long.
A couple things you should know:
1) This is purely audio; I haven't made any videos yet, but I will keep you posted if this changes. :)
2) English is my native language, and I'm aware that I talk fast, so I apologize for this.
I'll be making more podcasts over time, so keep checking back. Thanks!
Thanks for reading,
I'm still at it...this is my first experience in writing a sequel, and I have to admit, I'm having a hard time.
Writing your first novel, or at least the first in a series, is fun because the sky's the limit. You can be almost finished writing that manuscript then suddenly wake up in the middle of the night and get a ridiculous idea to insert into your story's mythology to spice it up. Or, at the last minute, you can change one of the main characters from a single mom to a lesbian so she doesn't resemble you so much (not to mention taller, with curly hair, and can yell at a jerk until they feel two inches tall...instead of thinking of a 'perfect' comeback six months later).
With Surreal 2, I don't have these types of freedom. My characters are set, as are the mythology. Sure, I can grow and expand upon that which I have already set up - but it's different. I want to make this installment better than the last, but not so far off from what made Surreal Ecstasy great in the first place.
Most of it is finished, but I still have dots to connect, as usual for me when I'm trying to finish a manuscript. I get frustrated, and in doing so, I put pressure on myself, and it stifles creativity. So, I'm trying to take it easy on myself, but at the same time, I'm constantly reminding myself of how I'm behind my internal deadline for this.
Keep scrolling down...I've made a last-minute decision to put one of my poems up. For those of you who don't know, it's been years since I've had the capability to write poetry. So, here's a little nostalgia from my old days.
Transcending Kiss (#317)
When you look at me
I feel Nothing
but a little pain
on the side
of what I used to feel
Because your eyes become one with me
and I lose everything I have
And the thing I house inside
and turns into soul
And that's all I know
While the spectrum
of your eyes
blend my thoughts
Eternity halts for a score
as the earth breathes
and the air freezes still,
and I, nonliving once more,
Know no pain, lack, nor agenda,
and the beating of that
flies through me
and brainwashes in your soul
this great transcending kiss.
Read my spine-tingling short story,
"Loralee and The Green,"
in this very unique collection
A morbid young girl at a boarding school who
is being chased and terrorized by a ghost
meets a mysterious new boy who
doesn't like to be touched.
A teen deals with her clumsiness AND mysterious new power while figuring out who her birth parents are, dealing with snobby girls, and deciding which cute guy she wants to be with.
Young Adult (sweet paranormal romance)
A young woman is overcoming a violent relationship, recreational ecstasy use, and a generally lonely life to free herself from her inner demons. She then learns about the existence of the God Generation and meets a wonderful man who ends up being part of this supernatural phenomena.
