You would never think that you could get results out of using your negative emotions for something.

Some of the best writings come out of the most intense emotions ever experienced, and worry is one of them.

Here’s this week’s Picture it & Write! I’m sorry I’m late!
Maybe I was too late.
Maybe I had noticed it too late.
The most dangerous thing about love was that it could deprive you of all your senses, all except the one deep inside of you: that of your heart. When trapped within its unyielding grasp, it would hug you so hard that you would feel the loud drumming of that central organ of yours; it would suffocate you and hypnotize you…

Let’s face the truth: there is no escape, no short-cut. When Love gets to us, we are trapped… forever. Trapped in a vicious circle of loving blindly, getting hurt, moving on… well you thought you moved on, and then, you fall in love again only to get hurt again. Until you find the One. If you ever do.
Isn’t that sad.

Here’s this week’s Picture it & Write 😀 and my contribution:
To accept what you are, is to welcome all your qualities and flaws, telling them that it’s all right for them to exist, although some can lead to your downfall while others can put you up on a pedestal.

Here’s this week’s Picture It & Write:
Aiden looked up at the white paper sky. He often wondered what lay behind this sheet of clouds. People passed by him. He knew that they all thought that he was crazy. But he knew that he was not.

Another Picture it & Write! And my contribution to this week’s picture…
The most tragic of all love stories is one in which two people secretly love each other and yet…
Tracy thought that she had never met such a man as Kev. To any girl of the school, he was just like any other guy: not too muscular, nor too fragile; not too keen on sports, nor too geeky; not too handsome, nor too disgusting. He had plain dark eyes and hair, and his dressing code was rather the same every day: a boring T-shirt and a used pair of jeans.

Narrow-mindedness kills, you know?
It prosecutes, with no mercy. It spreads fear and sadness. It divides.
My father once told me not to write controversial, unconventional stories or ‘blasphemous’ ones. I read between the lines: people will judge and condemn – their narrow-mindedness will crush me down.
So I tried. To do as he had said.
But I couldn’t.

Why avoid the unavoidable? Life itself is so simple, but we make it complicated.
We limit ourselves… and sometimes it just makes everything worse.
“I’ve been making a list of the things they don’t teach you at school. They don’t teach you how to love somebody. They don’t teach you how to be famous. They don’t teach you how to be rich or how to be poor. They don’t teach you how to walk away from someone you don’t love any longer. They don’t teach you how to know what’s going on in someone else’s mind. They don’t teach you what to say to someone who’s dying. They don’t teach you anything worth knowing.”
― Neil Gaiman, The Sandman, Vol. 9: The Kindly Ones
Yes, for teenagers, school is a perfect example of what I’m going to write about today. Of course, I won’t say that this type of education isn’t important; it does have advantages like, it is now critical to have passed high school and at least followed tertiary courses to have a stable and respectable job.

This is the replies to a post by Free Spirits United,
There are 30 questions that is asked and I’ve decided to answer them. It sure sounds fun 😉 Feel free to do it too! in the comments below or in the comment box of the original article or on your blog, like I’m doing right now.
1. What great thing would you attempt if you knew you couldn’t fail?
The one great thing I would attempt… hmm… in fact there are so many things I would have tried if failure didn’t exist, like learning new languages or playing all musical instruments, but I guess that the one action I would not dare do is to introduce Wicca publicly as a peaceful religion here, except if I was 100% sure that I would succeed and not be burnt at the stake. 😛
About writing and getting published? Well that’s something I’ll always attempt to do never mind if I fail or not 🙂
2. What would you do if you were ten times bolder in your relationships, work, family, and spiritual life?
Speak out. Correct all the misjudgements so many people have made concerning my life. Vanquish my shyness.
3. What would you be doing if you had all the money in the world?
I’ve reached 50k words too yesterday night ^^ (did you see my winning badge on the right??) but hell, my novel is nowhere near ready! I feel like I’m still halfway in the writing. I reviewed it briefly yesterday and realised that I have much much to edit and all that. But really, I thank NaNo because thanks to this challenge I am now determined to finish the story and maybe next year or when I’ll be ready for it: I’ll go and publish. My dad told me he’d help me if I do. 🙂

I usually plan my characters first, before going on to the plot, when I write a story. Sometimes when I get a great idea – great for me LOL – I note it down of course, then I let myself dive into a whole new universe…
I sort of enter a relationship with every of the characters I made up and as I get to know more about them, I slowly build up a plot that will maybe never be written – haha, because I’ve never thought of seriously writing a novel before I met NaNo.

In my NaNo novel, the main protagonist is called Elaine Graith and she is the girl who becomes a daemon but is stuck in Heaven. One afternoon, I took pencil and paper and drew a quick sample of her.

Hi guys! So NaNoWriMo has begun today. Last night I was still up at 23.45 and I had enough guts to stay ’til the clock struck twelve to start my NaNo novel! Yeps I started typing at 00.00 today! Since that, I’m completely into it! It’s fun – for the time being. We never know what mischief this challenge holds back…
Anyway I only wrote for about 30 minutes – 554 words already – before I went to bed. I wrote the prologue only. I like it when prologues are short. 😛
