I'm now starting to get things together to get published. But in order for that to happen, I need help from all of you! Read and review my "Story" called "Big Book of Poems", it's a compilation of all the works that will be going into my book. I need your opinion on it, tell me what you think is good and what you think needs to be fixed and I'll get right on it! :)
I've just updated BOP(Big Book of Poems) with chapter six! It's titled "Forgotten Spaces" and is somewhat like the first entry, "Why", except it's less shocking and sudden. It's more of a mellow approach, and it has a lot less words. It's also done in Stanzas rather than word flow, which means the sentences are cut into sections and made into what song lyrics look like when written out(for those who don't know what Stanzas are).
I hope you enjoy it! It's not the greatest poem in the world.
What do you know? Another update. It's been well over too long, I realize. But the thing is, I have a lot going on concerning school right now. My plans for a chapter made entirely out of metaphors totally bombed, in fact I forgot entirely what I was getting at with that. I have a few ideas, but only a couple of metaphors come to mind when I think about what was supposed to go into that poem. That's what I get for not writing it down.
Anyway, I do have a seventh chapter up now. It's very different that what I'd planned for it to be. Bu it's something, right?
It's been two months since my last update, and I am SOOO sorry! BUT! I have some amazing news! My youtube channel is up! I don't have any videos up yet. I did, but I deleted them because they were just awful and I want to redo them and make them more professional. So that's what I'm going to do! be sure to subscribe to me PRETTY PLEASE! That would be amazing :) I'm so happy, my career is slowly starting to take off. It's definitely been a process, full of lots of procrastination and busy late night work to get everything together, but I might actually have a small book published next year! Wow! This is so amazing. It won't be in any stores, but I'm hoping to put something of the sort on Amazon once I save up the money, promote it and get some sales. So please pay attention to my youtube channels, because I'll be updating you all as much as I can about this there. I'm so excited!! :) I also updated my username here to be more professional. If I'm serious about this, I really need to show it!
I got my first video up! It's a video about the channel, and hopefully I can figure out how to like gold star it or something to keep it on the top of my page.
You really don't have to read all of this. I'll put bold brackets around the important parts. I just kind of unloaded on you guys.
Wowsah, it's been awhile! I'm really terribly sorry for my absence lately. I've just been so busy! I haven't had time for much online stuff besides chatting via kik on my phone with some close friends who don't live in town. School is coming to an end and this is my senior year(technically my second try at senior year, but until my first try at it I hadn't been in a public school since fourth grade, soooo...) and I'm preparing to start a kind of finishing school at the local community college, which will also prepare me for when I go major in English there in 2016-17! :) While I will be majoring in that, I'll be hoping that the book I'm progressively yet slowly building up over here will kickstart my career before I graduate, if I can manage graduating. I'm barely going to get by graduating High School, and only because I'm going to this finishing school. Despite all that, it'll be nice to have a high school diploma on hand when I get into college. I know no one else will care, but I don't want to feel underqualified for anything. Especially a college level English class, oh boy! That'll be fun. And I thought my High School English teacher was bad, one hell of an asshat that one was, let me tell you!
Anyway, enough about the boring details of my edumacation. I've somewhat abandoned my youtube channel because I had neither the time, nor the editing skills, nor the patience to keep it going. Not to mention, I have terrible stage fright and can never manage to get my poetry to come out the way it's supposed to on camera. So yeah, that was sort of a fail and I'm dreadfully sorry to anyone who was waiting for the next update!
As for The House at the Edge of Town, I'm considering coming out with a third chapter and continuing the whole thing, but i can't remember most of where I was going with it so chances of that are pretty low. I'll probably just be deleting it and moving on like I do with all my attempts to pass as a fictional writer rather than just a poet. So if you're also hanging on for that, don't get your hopes up.
Now, for the most important part! BBOP! I'm still looking for a more suitable name, but for now I'll just stick with that. All of your reviews have been wonderful! And I promise to be updating it with all my new poems soon! Give me time, I'm a busy girl and sometimes school and my new boyfriend get in the way.
Speaking of, I have a significant other in the form of a male person named Logan. He's really great, and Monday will officially have us together for three weeks. It's coming up on being my longest relationship with someone that isn't a whole state away from me haha! I'm quite satisfied.
Ooooooooh boy this update has been longer than Pinochio's Nose. Please, do not feel inclined to read all this if you're too lazy. I in no way blame you!!!
I think that's all for now. Please, please, please stick with me! Your support means everything, LITERALLY, if it weren't for those of you who read and sometimes review my work, I would have quit a long time ago and left the site. You're my heroes, every one of you, never forget that :) Love you all sooo much! FARFARREN!
The House at the Edge of Town:
The full extension of the house, in all consideration. Inside and out(Note, this is not congruent with the image used for the story. That image was only used because it showed the Ivy growing up the front, which is important to the story):
(Just try to imagine it with ivy growing all over the outside)
(Everything is coated in dust and the furniture is all covered with white sheets)
I'm not going to just give you the answer. You've gotta work for it, however the first person to figure out what it says will be featured in the story as a semi-main character, one of the ghosts. Whether you would like to be featured as a friendly ghost or an evil ghost is up to you, however I would like it to be known that I don't want more than three friendly ghosts in the entire story. This is a horror tale, and if the adventurers are getting too much help it won't be as good.
Anyway, on to the important stuff.
Deciding on he code I was going to use was quite easy, as well as spicing it up a bit. All I did is label each letter 1-26, and then went from there. Spaces are the places between letters, dashes are word breaks. Meaning it's the end of a word. HOWEVER! Some of the letters ARE missing. Remember, this is a ghost from at least 40 years ago. They're experts in being cryptic, they've been doing this a long time.

Let's keep this simple. I'm a person. You're [hopefully] a person. That guy over there is a person. I suggest you go discuss this coincidence with him while I write more poetry. (That's what we call irony, kids.)
PS: Kim is awesome :3
PSS: You can also reach me here if I don't reply to whatever you PM me about which is very likely. I'm not on here constantly like I tend to be on Fanfic. It may take me a few hours to reply as I'm currently in school and without an internet-capable phone, so I would wait at least 24 hours before PMing me on my Fanfic account. I don't post any stories on there, although I have been inspired lately. I'm more for poetry, that's why I have this account.
Random joke that I like because I hate racism/harmful isms of any kind: The white man said, "Colored people are not allowed here." The black man turned around and stood up. He then said: "Listen sir...when I was born I was BLACK, When I grew up I was BLACK, When I'm sick I'm BLACK, When I go in the sun I'm BLACK, When I'm cold I'm BLACK, When I die I'll be BLACK. But you sir, When you're born you're PINK, When you grow up you're WHITE, When you're sick, you're GREEN, When you go in the sun you turn RED, When you're cold you turn BLUE, And when you die you turn PURPLE. And you have the nerve to call me colored?" The black man then sat back down and the white man walked away.
A wise man once said that life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're going to get until you take a bite. However, I like to believe that he's wrong. Life is not like a box of chocolates. Sure, you can't judge the people in your life by what they look like on the outside, but have you ever looked inside that box of chocolates? There's a flavor guide underneath the tray in just about any box, and life doesn't come with a little book of what everyone will be like, and how to deal with them, and all those other things.
So here's my philosophy: Life is hard. But this is something we've known since well before the time of anyone in this age. So think of it like this. You have your box of chocolates, or you don't. i.e., you know how to deal with bullshit, or you don't. It's up to you. But remember these simple rules, and you'll be okay. Because no matter how hard things have been for me in the past, these things have always come through for me.
1. It doesn't get better. But you can make it easier to deal with, by surrounding yourself with people who actually care instead of wasting your time with people who only want you for your attention.
2. Don't fuck around and screw up your friendships. If they're there for you and it's clear they actually care, then yeah you better fucking care too. They won't stick around if they can tell you don't.
3. It all depends on who you have by your side if you wind up with the shorter end of the stick.
