Writing my first book

Here is a little bit of background. In December it will be ten years since I lost my father to a massive heart attack, and to commemorate a great man, and shed light to the situation my family and I were put in, I am writing my first book. I plan on having the book finished by his anniversary and afterward will go through the complete editing process (if I don't get it done before hand) and attempting to have it published.

If anyone has lost someone the love and have repressed feelings and are still grieving, I suggest writing it down. Writing gives you an escape, through words and characters. My characters are based off people I know or have met, some characters are a combination of a few different people. The meaning in my book is, so deep only family members will be able to tell what I've done in terms of referring to different places and people.

Writing in Barnes & Noble yesterday, I wrote part of a chapter involving my sister, and writing about her as a seven year old kid, while having her sitting as a seventeen year old in front of me was mind boggling and there was nothing I could do about the tears that followed.

Hopefully, one day, everyone will have the chance to read my story and know how much myself and my family loved my father, and how much he loved us in return.

Best Wishes for a wonderful day to everyone, thank you.

Harry Potter!!

Okay, so my dirty little secret is that I LOVE HARRY POTTER! If you saw me you would never think I was a fan, but I have read all of series at least three times. If you have never read these books you are deprived. J.K.Rowling is truly inspiring. Right now I myself am writing a book, slowly but surely due to stress and God knows what else goes on in my life, but I will have it finished by this December.

Oh my...

Sorry I haven't posted in a while, it's been a hectic couple of days. Something I came to realize over the last few days is how rude people are. Not to drown on and on but OMG!  My job deals with sales and collections and it is HORRIBLE. I am noticing more and more how much the money isn't worth it. Has anyone else ever felt that way?

My boyfriend is amazing though, made me salmon stuffed with crab and spaghetti with vodka sauce, along with a bottle of wine. :0) Gotta love him. Okay glad I got that off my chest. Now on to the fun stuff!!!!

I have been thinking more and more lately about wanting to travel more, but unfortunately you need the green stuff to do that and I have some other things on my plate right now. Me and my boyfriend are continuously talking about getting married and along with that comes ALOT OF MONEY! So as of this point I will live vicariously through everyone else and buy beautiful artwork and photography from others. Hey if I can't go there I might as well bring it to my house. <3

Jersey Girl Dreams

Well I am a Jersey Girl, please don't be misunderstood by the cast of the Jersey Shore, these people are a terrible misrepresentation of our state, considering only one comes from here.  There a million things going wrong with NJ right now, the Governor being the largest of them all, but it is a great place to live. 

We have great views of the city and are only 1-2 hours away from the Beach.....

My First Blog Posting

Well I am 100% new at this, I've never really had a blog before because I never thought people would care what I have to say.  But, here I am just getting the hang of things. I just wanted to say hello and I will be back soon with some fun postings. :0)
