The Writer In Me

So, it is about 3:30 in the morning and I was just asked by my guy what I was doing. I was reading information on how to publish a book. He said, "Well, first one must actually finish writing instead of being so scared." *sigh*

I honestly haven't written anything aside from my Head In The Clouds poem. I don't know why I haven't completed any of my works. I guess that I am afraid that I will fail. I mean, being a writer is one thing, but trying to make it into the mainstream is a whole different story. *gulp*

I know I shouldn't be scared but I just am. I can honestly admit that I am frightened that my work isn't good enough. Richard (my guy) has read my work countless times and has always encouraged me to continue writing. The only thing that he suggested that I change or phrase things differently. Other than that my work received positive reviews. However, coupled with my infinite laziness and constant doubts I have yet to put myself out there. I mean, can it be that bad? It can't hurt, could it?

There is only one way to find out. I have to try. But I have so many unfinished works. Especially, this one work that I had begun working on in 2001/2002. My college professor at the time, Prof. Schaeffer absolutely adored it. I just hope that I can get my butt in gear and publish something. I think I am up for the challenge.

Scandal Season 7 Review...the deconstruction of Olivia Pope

Olivia Pope portrayed by Kerry Washington. Hi friends, I know it has been some time since I covered Scandal and I apologize. I have been watching multiple shows all at once, so it has been hard for me to get my reviews together. With that being said, I have a major gripe with the seventh and last season of Scandal. I want to start off by saying..."Where is Olivia and what the hell happened to her?!" As a viewer of the show since its first season, I have seen a lot of changes happen. From the departure of OPA alum Stephen at the end of season 1, Columbus Short's publicized departure from the show at the end of season 3, the death of James (which makes me still hate Jake) and so on. But this season has Liv as the head of B613 (Command) and she is quickly becoming the stuff that nightmares are made of. Liv has now taken to tactics that her father, Rowan would do when he was the head of the organization. But seriously, what happened to the lady in the white hat? Wher…

#30 Day Shipping Challenge: Day 2: What was your first ship?

Over the years, I have been fans of many ships. But, no ship has got me in my feelings as much as Buffy and Angel from Buffy the Vampire Slayer (Angel). Buffy and Angel was my first ever ship. From the moment that they meet outside the Bronze to the moment after the fight with the mayor, Angel and Buff stare at each other from a distance as he turns to leave (Angel goes off to L.A. to have his spin-off series.) The ‘Bangel’ ship was the first tv couple that I had ever written fanfiction on. I don’t know, at 16 years old, they were thee ‘it’ couple...despite the fact that he was a 200 something year old vampire and she was a teenage girl groomed to be the Slayer (on paper this pairing is sooo not legal). But their relationship made for such interesting drama. Especially, after Angel turns into Angelus (Angel without a soul) after he and Buffy consummate their relationship. Things are never the same with these two, especially when Angelus begins to torture Buffy and the Scooby Ga…
