Fail troll.

I asked my friends what I should title my next work (giving the options “Kiss the Winter Goodbye, Sweetheart”, “Burn”, “Master of the Survivors”, and “Master of the Runners”) on my personal Facebook page. I got a few responses from my friends, asking what it was about and saying that it sounded cool, and I got this awful reply that made me incredibly angry.

“They both suck. Go back to the drawing board, you’ll NEVER win a Grammy, EVER”

I mean, really? First of all, Grammys are for music. Duh. Second of all, I would like to see you come up with something better. Third of all, why would you go and troll like that? I mean, the internet isn’t for the faint-hearted, I know that, but you really want to say that when I know where you live and our sisters are best friends? You want to say this crap when I see your face every day? I mean, why? Seriously. I’m not going to say that crap about you, so why bug me with it? I totally understand that you don’t like the titles, but tell me WHAT YOU DON’T LIKE or GIVE ME A SUGGESTION, for Pete’s sake! Go trolling on my Facebook?! Really?! And, then he continued to scroll through my statuses about my projects and commented with “meh” on my cover for KTWGS and I just want to know how to make it better! I also posted part of an MCR lyric as a status (“Raise your glass high for tomorrow, we die!”) and he says, “that is AWFULL”. Again, terrible grammar. Why even comment? This is MY page and I get to say whatever I want to. You don’t like it, leave. This is my music. My life. Get away if you’re a hater like that. And don’t think I’m going to leave it alone. I’m going to confront you about it. I can’t believe this. This is the stupidest thing in the world. I swear to God..

Everybody wants to change the world.

It's a wonderful morning. Sunday, day of the kings. I woke up to the sun streaming through my window and I was curled up tightly. It was nice. I stayed there for a little while, contemplating where my next project (Kiss the Winter Goodbye, Sweetheart - which shall be referred to as KTWGS) would take me. How would I put some of myself into these four teenagers who have some strange talent and survive the apocalypse? How would I make the Pain Master relatable and fun and mysterious and interesting without making him the focus of this plot? How can I give Persephone the attitude of "I don't care at all" and make her be tough and off-putting, and make sure I don't have any of the guys fall for her accidentally? What are Elicio, Tully, and Persephone's talents? Why is the Pain Master special? How am I going to write the epic battle between the Higher and the survivors? Heck, the battle between the Higher's robot and the Pain Master and his students?

But, KTWGS would have to wait for a moment, while I had some pancakes and watched the Happy Days reunion, even though I've never watched the show. Then, I migrated over here to update my Tumblr, checked Facebook, went through my deviantART, looked for any Goodreads or Figment notifications, and came over here to write a new post and listen to some My Chemical Romance to get me inspired (I mean, come on, "I'm just a man, I'm not a hero..." How can that not give me ideas?) to get cracking on KTWGS. I'm excited for this project, I really am. It might be as good as Insomniac. Or not. Either way, it will be fun. And isn't that what this is all about?

Drained.. but Totally Loving It

Hey, just so you know, I copied and pasted this from my deviantART journal. There were two. Just so you know. :)

First one:

IT TOOK ME AN HOUR TO GO THROUGH MY NOTIFICATIONS. A WHOLE HOUR! I've only been gone for three days, guys! Why must you bombard me with this crap (kiddings - love the work, keep it up!)?! My internet has been down, so I have two hours at the library today. AND HALF OF IT IS NOW GONE.

Also - no new Insomniac until Friday/Saturday. The reason being: I will not have internet until then and I had to empty my flash drive to fit all of the photography my friends did that I had to upload onto Facebook for them. You will just have to wait. I did finish it. I'm sort of happy with the ending, but not completely. Maybe you'll like it better than I do. :/ Who knows?

Another thinger - ~PhoenixMonroe is coming to hang out tomorrow and Friday, so we're writing a Jarper/Rev clash fanfic thing. It will be fun and possibly good enough to post TWICE!

Err.. more news..

OH! Yes. I started Paint Slave. I really should give myself a break, but I wanted to start this and I need to move away from realistic stuff to a full-out fantasy thing. It shall be fun. BASIC PLOT SUMMARY!! Dilenquent shipped to "reformatory school" by parents. School turns out not to be a school. Meets three other dilenquents and the "paint master". Becomes a "paint slave". Does stuff for the "paint master". Cue massive heat wave - like MASSIVE massive. Like WIPES ALL LIFE ON THE SURFACE OF EARTH massive. Cue shelter a few miles underground. Cue going back up and finding dead relatives (well, they think that they're their relatives.. they're sort of.. ash). Something about finding life and maybe even the four horsemen of the apocalypse or something. Not sure yet.'s still a working plot. But that's basic stuff. ~PhoenixMonroe gave me names.

Well.. I'm off to work some more and goof of and.. stuff. See ya on Friday!


And the second one:

I. Finished. It.


Because I posted it.

All of it.


Name that quote. I'll give ya a cookie if ya do.


I'm going to take a breather and write some poetry. Then get cracking on Paint Slave and Engraved because I can't commit to just one.

I got the new MCR CD and the FBHT CD. I wish they would come out with another one. I mean, I know Green Day is working hard on their new album, but I wish they would go back to the FoxTubbies for a little bit to tide us over. Just for a little bit? Please?

I thought that I had something cool to say, but I can't remember what it is. Hmm. Ninja gremlins stole my thoughts. :/ Oh well.


Yes, it is true. I did finish Insomniac. :)

I thought that the whole "I WILL FINISH THIS!" and the "THIS WILL BE EPIC!" things would be my famous last words. I really did. I doubted. I know that I didn't sound like it, but every second I did this, I was thinking, "Is this even good? Who would read this crap?" then I would think, "I want to write this. It doesn't matter if no one else ever reads it. I want to write it for myself. So I will." And I did.

I need to give myself a break. I'm going to die if I don't..

Insomniac updates and other random stuff like witchcraft, photography, friends, and the Foxboro Hot Tubs

Wow. Long post title.

Anywho, first things first. Insomniac just crossed the 30K word line. I'm so happy. I had to give it a mature content warning on deviantART, though, because Jimmy drops at least three f-bombs and some other choice words as well. Oh well. At least people can still read it if they want to. They're only words to me, so I'm not bothered. If you are, don't go trollin' on my work, cuz I warned you and you will just be redirected to the Nyan Cat video and most likely called a "fail."

I went to see HP7 on Sunday with some friendsies. Yes, I will admit it, I did cry. A lot. And, we were sitting in front, so I was sure people were staring. But I didn't care. Part of me died in that theatre... and then I almost choked to death on my gum, so, I really did almost die.

Me and those two friends from HP and another are having an epic photography day on Saturday too. We're having a sleepover on Friday and going around wearing black on Saturday (which will be an extremely hot day, but we'll get over it), taking pictures. I can't wait. If you see us, say hi! We don't bite! ..much.

MY FBHT CD CAME YESTERDAY! And I haven't stopped listening to it. It's amazing. I love it. And it only cost me nine dollars on Red Tag. :)

22 Hours

At least it's not 127, right? Technically, I guess it's 44, there and back, but still. I want to finish my 21CB fanfic and get a lot done with Insomniac. I promised to Paint Slave that I would at least try to update every night, so there shall be no shortage on that front. But, just so you know, I won't be posting for a while here. So, keep calm and carry on without me for a while and I'll see you soon. :) Bye!

I just wanted to type a lot because I don't want to go fold three loads of laundry while my sister is watching the dumbest, stupidest, most low-class show ever (H2O). Here it goes.

  • My FBHT CD isn't here yet.. I'm hoping it comes today or tomorrow. Or just before we leave. It'll probably get here right after we leave because that's what happened with my book too. :/

  • I'm working on Isomniac. I know that you knew this already. I'm at approximately 15000 words right now. That means I'm a little over a third of the way there. I don't think that Insomniac will make it all the way to 50K, but I can certainly try. I'm bringing in a few twists involving the Rev and his past and his passion for grape juice. He's also probably going to get pranked by Karma and Roxelle (probably something involving Roxelle's snake, Jubilee). I won't say for what, but I assume that it's going to involve Monroe. Zane's talents are going to emerge beautifully, I imagine, but I won't tell you what they are just yet. Will and Renee, well, they're still oblivious to Faith.


  • Since we have a 22 hour drive coming up in our near future, I think that my 21st Century Breakdown fanfic should be done soon. I'll get it typed up and posted and it should be all right. This would be my interpretation of Christian and Gloria's story, based on Green Day's album, 21st Century Breakdown of course.

  • I was also watching the music videos for My Chemical Romance's Na Na Na and Sing and I loved the story in those and was thinking about 1) buying the CD and 2) writing a fanfic based on those two songs (I need my own killjoy). Maybe Welcome to the Black Parade too, I'm not sure yet.

  • Though you probably haven't read it yet (seeing as how I haven't posted it here), I was working on a story called Engraved before Camp NaNo. I'm working out the plot arc in my head and it's turning out rather well, I think.

  • I'm also going to be taking lots of photos in DC (hopefully some good enough to post here) and then when I get back, ~PhoenixMonroe and ~ReginaGeorge can have our epic photography day. We'll get together on a weekend (dressed in cordinated outfits) and drag my mom around to the Villages and to the river and to downtown to the brick walls and the fences and the rubble and the graffiti and such.. It'll be fun.

  • Yes. And I need to find a new guitar teacher because mine is going to college a year early. :/ I'll miss him, but I'll take a month off and take up guitar and piano again and I shall redeem myself with YouTube videos.

And that's what I have. Thanks for reading all of that. Kudos. Peace. Love.

The Reverend

Those of you that read Insomniac, you know who the Reverend Strychnine Twitch is. Those of you that listen to the Foxboro Hot Tubs, you know who the Reverend Strychnine Twitch is. Well, today, on the anniversary of the birth of our country, my friend Macy, who reads Insomniac on a regular basis and "loves it" and has "Twitchitis", was at a festival and saw a guy who "looked exactly like Twitch! He had blond hair and was dressed in Twitch-ish clothes" and he "put on sunglasses randomly" and was "drinking beer by the stage" and she thought "holy crap it's Twitch!" All from a text message or two, but she got no picture because her "phone was being stupid".

Needless to say, this made my day, even if I couldn't see this guy. :)

First Day: A Recap

I should make a vlog for this, but I don't really want to. Maybe I'll do that when I get more written. But I woke up at 4:43 and jumped out of bed. It was still dark and, when I went downstairs, it was so quiet and calm and cool and it was amazing. I wrote a little over 2000 words, which put me at 9700-ish. I listened to a lot of music (FBHT, the Fratellis, MCR, the like) and I just didn't want to stop. Waking up early always gives me more energy, so I got a lot done, whereas today, I woke up at eight and feel so tired that it's not even funny. :/ Oh well. I can still write. '

All in all, considering my partner and I are at about the same length right about now, I think it was a pretty good day. This is going to be the best NaNo yet. We're excited, young, and we're getting our lives done now. I say that because these novels (and short stories and poems and fanfic and such), they're my life. If I didn't write them now, I'd have so many ideas at the end of my life (or midlife or early adulthood or high school) when I'm so busy that I simply can't write them. I mean, I do know adults and high schoolers who make time for this, but I have consistency in my life right now that lets me write whenever I want to for how long I want. It's nice. This is not to say I won't keep writing, because I will. Even if I have to get :gulp: a real job, I will still write.

Also: My writing friend and I have decided that, since we're embarking on this journey together, we'd incorporate each other into our stories as, like, a cameo. I have decided what I'm doing for her, and she's already done mine. You can read it here. I came up with most of the dialogue for her. She's a little bit meaner than I usually am, but she's actually really close to me. I think I'm going to put her in as (those of you who are reading my work as I write it, this is a spoiler, so.. yeah) a girl named Macy who goes to the Ruby Room and gets saved by the Rev (christened Monroe) but something kind of.. weird happens to her. (So, actually, I guess this really wasn't too much of a spoiler, but..) I'm thinking something sort of dark, but I don't want it to be a stereotypical thing, ya know? I may take suggestions if they're good, but I don't think anyone will bring anything up, so I'm just going to roll with it.

So, I'm off to write and get a little breakfast. Have an uber awesome day! :)
