I never win anything.
Except for the last week, I won two things.
I barely enter contests because I know I'll lose. Maybe I should start though.
I hate competition haha.
I can't even tell you how amazing this would be. They could just hang themselves. No more wrinkles, no more folding, no more crying, no more drinking because there is so many....
Let's be honest, even my family doesn't understand me.
If I had to come up with things, let's see...
This isn't easy... I'm sure I could explain myself to people and they'd get who I was.
I'm kinda boring.
I'll be the first to admit....
.... I'm not that bright. Some of the brain cells in my head stopped working when I was 15.
So does a hut count? I know how to start a fire too!
Write what you know.
I will write whatever the HELL I WANT.
That's literally all I need to say on this.
Follow your dream kids, don't let someone tell you what you can/cannot write.
Unless it's racist, homophobic or sexist. That's not cool.
1. Dracula's Castle
I plan on seeing this for my 30th birthday. As you may know, I've been a fan of Dracula since I was five.
2. Chillingham Castle
Okay, I may have a thing for castles ... I want to see England's Most Haunted Castle. I love ghost stories and would love to visit something so ominous.
3. Paris Catacombs
.... I like macabre stuff I see. I have wanted to see the catacombs since I watched "World's Most Haunted" and this came up. I don't want to stay with the tour group. I'd risk getting lost and dying.
4. Meet David Levithan
My favourite author of ALL time. I want to be able to have him sign my copy of "Boy Meets Boy" and cry because I am fangirling.
5. Go hang Gliding
Okay, finally something that involves DOING something. I want to take a Hang Glider out on the ocean. I'd like to fly in the sky for a while and just look at life from above. Even if I am terrified of the ocean and heights and hang gliders.
1. David Levithan
He wrote my favourite book of all time. I would have the worst fangirl moment in life if I could ever meet him. Maybe one day when I have written enough, I will go to a convention and he will be there and I will cry.
2. J.K. Rowling
Although I was not a fan of Harry Potter (shocker! I know) I would love to meet her. I think she seems like an extremely genuine human being and I love those kind of people. The fact she's the first person to fall OFF the billionaire list because of donating makes me absolutely speechless.
3. Bram Stoker
He wrote Dracula and I love the novel and Dracula himself. It's weird but he's like an idol to me. Which makes me seem like a psycho. Sorry folks.
Oh man.... I can't think right now....
4. Truman Capote
I think this man was a genius and I adore him. I would give anything to be able to pick apart his brain. The movie was also amazing and fantastic. You should see it.
5. Ernest Hemingway
Another genius that was plagued by mental health issues that was gone too soon.
The one book I can honestly say inspired me the most. It's the reason I became a writer, it gave me the courage to come out to my family and it made me love reading.
I highly suggest everyone read this. If you read and loved Love, Simon ... this is the original cutesy gay young adult lit. I absolutely ADORE IT. I found myself a Noah. :)
This might be the shortest blog post. I could sum this up with an image.
I had a mental block for three years after finishing The Summer Experience. So I would go insane if I didn't write.
But let's theoretically say that I didn't have the writing disease inside me.
I would probably be quite normal. Working at a normal job, like office work.
Or maybe I'd be better at the visual arts.
... probably no.
This is a good question, but instead of being like "Oh you know, a lot". I'm going to try and break this down.
Mattie Hawkins from The Winter Experience
Morgan Winters from The Winter Experience
Jenny Winters from The Winter Experience
Myles Summers from The Summer Experience
Holden Rogers from The Art of Falling In Love
That's probably who I am most in my writing.
BONUS: What I wish was me, but I know isn't.
Desdemona (Clars Edwards) from Abaddon
Some people out there say you shouldn't put a blog on your website, it looks "unprofessional". Fuck that. I'm writing all the blog posts. From happy book release information to sad stuff in my life. Welcome to my blog. Get to know my personality, not just my writing.
