So, I tried something new to help me with my writing. I think I was afraid of heard myself read back a story I created.

Well, a few friends suggested that I give it a try. And I did. I have to say, it did help me with my tenses and some awkward wording. I changed the present tense I found to pass tense. And I worked through some awkward wording in my story. I have to say, it was not a bad as I thought it would be.

I will be doing this more often.

So, I was contacted this week by a former co-worker to write a letter of recommendation for her because she has an interview on Thursday.

I was quite shocked that I was asked, but was honored none the less. So, I told her that I would write one for her. It was my first time writing a letter of recommendation for someone and I looked it up to see how to write one. I followed the guidelines that few sites a checked and went forward in writing the letter.

I'm quite pleased with how it came out and I wish her the best of luck with the job!!

So, I've been trying to branch out and explore the world of dream width since it's quite new to me. I still have issues with posting and coding mostly and need some cheat code sheets. I'm trying to challenge myself and my writing abilities by coming out of my un-comfort zone and signing up for prompt challenges at [community profile] allbingo and [community profile] 15kisses.

So, I put in a request at [community profile] 15kisses and I was able to claim it.

My request was: Supernatural Fandom, Pairing: Castiel/Gabriel, Table: Aries.



Aries

001.Squeal 002.Curse 003.Repulsive 004.Endure 005.Repress
006.Thunderstruck 007.Fire 008.Dance 009.Wings 010.Peace
011.Resplendent 012.Luxury 013.Genuflect 014.Empire 015.Dusk



I'm quite nervous about the pairing but very excited to try something completely new.

So, I've realized that it's been quite a while since I really shared anything going on in my life and its time that I get a few things off my chest.

Update... )
yonkyu: (Handsome man)
Sunday was the start of Advent and every year my church has Advent Books to help support prayer and preparations of Christ. It runs for 4 weeks and every day there is a prayer and passage with a question at the end. I will be posting the question with my response. It will be friends locked and under a cut. Its just another way to help support my writing and find the confidence in myself. I've been wanting to do this for a while now and I'll be starting it tonight.

It's okay if you don't read it or anything. I respect everyone's opinions and beliefs of one's own religion.

I am looking for a beta that is willing to help with style, voice, flow, and characterization, along with spelling and grammar.

If you are able to help me, please email or PM me. I am very appreciative for the time and energy you are willing to help me polish my story.

Thank you.

So, I have been thinking long and hard about my writing skills. And I have come to a decision on taking a creative writing class.

I discovered an online writing school that offers workshops and classes. So the class or workshop I'm interested in taking is called - The “I’ve Always Wanted To Write Fiction” Workshop.

The Workshop... )

So, I am not to happy with my boss.

She came in to tell me and my co-teacher that they hired 2 assistant teachers for our classroom. Then my co-teacher asked what hours they will be working. She said "7-1" and "11-5." Then she turned to me, laughed at me, and said "you will be closing now."

I am so pissed off. Seriously that is not how you share vital information with someone. So mad.


Anyway, I lost 10.5 pounds since January 4th, 2016. YAY!!!

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] majestic_duxk for her extensive and deep comments on my Big Bang. That's what I will be working on at work!!!! I'm so going to make you proud with my scene!!!

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] kattrip033 for her notes and brainstorming work!!! It really helped me with my scene!!!

Love you both!!! I wish I were closer to both of you!!!

Well, its a brand new year and I have started my workout goals and changes for a healthier me in 2016. So far it is kicking me in the ass, which is great because I love to feel the burn from a good workout. I am doing it on my own, yes on my own. I realize over the years that you can always relies on others to help you through it. Sadly, I never had many people in my corner that I could trust to help support me. So I am pushing myself to achieve my goals in losing some weight, it will be a challenge but I will do my best to make a difference in my diet. I did join a support group on Facebook and so far it seems to be supportive to all members - so I will be posting there along my journey.

So I have been doing some reading for inspiration for my writing and I have some ideas to support me. I have my Alpha reader and very excited to gain knowledge and insight to improve my story. With that I have been leaving kudos and reviewing the stories I read. It amazing me how many people review or don't review a story. I feel I have found my mojo to work my way through my story.

I have no expectations from the readers, I never really got reviews to begin with and I lack the skills of descriptive and emotional writing by showing it. Anyway, not feeling myself lately, and feel like I have no place to turn or speak to others.

I hope you all have a wonderful day.
