Politics breeds hypocrisy

What if the democrats drafted a bill that was exactly what republicans say they want? I bet the republicans would still attack it.


Reset: New Mission for this Blog

I'm here to rant. Really to tell the truth as I see it. I really don't care what anyone thinks. But I am open to a conversation. What I'm not open to is meanness. I've had enough of that in my life, and if anyone attempts to throw that kind of crap at me I will slay them with my words. Enough said. That kind of behavior is not okay. Why do we humans still think it's okay to kill each other? WTF?

That's it for now. If you can't figure out that I'm here to rant and say the truth as I see, then, okay -- this is not the place for you.


It's been a long time since I signed in. Much has happened, and nothing has happened, because I'm not published. To the tyrant within, that's all that matters. I have failed in my mission -- the mission to be published in fiction. And I know why.

1) I haven't submitted.
2) I haven't submitted because I've felt my stories weren't ready, weren't good enough, weren't excellent enough.

I'm tired of it.

Today, I vow to write for publication. And I'm scared to make that vow. because:

1) I'm not good enough.
2) My stories aren't good enough.
3) It all sucks.

What all sucks, I don't know. I don't care. All I care about it publishing.

Assume I am published. What would I have to do to get there? I do know.
1) Research my favorite authors' publisher's writers guidelines -- harpercollins children.
2) Done. They only take agented material but they also run authonomy.com and inkpop.com. The latter may be right for my YA fantasy.
3) Check out inkpop.com.
4) DONE. It's not that active. looked back at Authonomy.com. There's more going on there. The latter. including children's and fantasy writing.
5) Okay. Authonomy would be a good place to go. Gping to check it out. An experiment.

I'll keep you posted.

Dora out.

Force of Nature

I am a force of nature. And all this time I've been striving to be such a powerful, amazing thing that others run from it or stare at in awe. I don't need to run anymore. I can stand still and feel the pulse of heat through my veins and whistle of wind through my ears. I am a force of nature and I write.
