3 hours of typing.......Ally in Disguise

I spent three hours tonight typing up new edits to the ongoing saga that is Ally in Disguise. I managed to get a record 17 pages done, and although I have a sore back, I feel like I have accomplished alot. There is still a tonne of pages to get through, but I put in a huge effort to get it completed. In a previous blog post I ambitiously said I wanted to get the fifth draft done by the end of the Easter holidays, I have 12 days to make that happen!

I've been riding this train since the first day of summer, I can't get off now! Sure you can, tuck and role!

This summer has been a huge disappointment weather wise, due to lack of usable sunny days. I purchased a new bikini for a considerable amount of money, in hopes of lazing on the beach perched atop my hot pink fold out chair, sun glistening off my nicely tanned thighs whilst enjoying the tropical surroundings and taking a dip in the turquoise waters.
However, in reality, I have donned said bikini approx 10 times, three of those times in spite of the crap weather.
Seriously, I live in such an amazing location known for beautiful weather, and I feel like i have been deprived of my high expectations. Not only did it rain for six weeks straight, but since then it has been raining on and off ever since.Today one of the most beautiful days that I can remember, I found myself living through the most dreadful cold any human could possibly have contracted outside of swine or bird flu. I am not fucking happy and I refuse to give up my dream, even though summer is in fact over and its nearly the second month of Autumn.

I WILL get into my Bikini again
 
I WILL be granted another beautiful day before the cold winter sets in
 
I WILL top up my tan
 
I WILL suck alcohol out of a pineapple with a curly straw and umbrella perched precariously in the top.
 
Don't fuck with me mother nature........

What is this sick twisted game your playing?

Opportunity for "Mature Debate" squandered!

There are moments of clarity, when I am in conversations with people where I realise that no matter how many opportunities I give them, it is never going to be the "Mature Debate" I hoped it would be. Just petty, uneducated nonsense that I really dont care to continue.

You can't kick the dean out of the deanery!

I am the boss of my own destiny. What I do, how I act, where I go, who I see and when I do it all directly contributes to how I will end up in the future. No one can make my life what it is or will become. It's up to me to decide and act to make what I want to happen!

What is the book about?


Gold Digger.

Three ultimately different and independent women, a Gold Digger, a Reporter and a High Society Princess are forced together through a whirlwind of lies, cheating and betrayal.


From Wichita Falls in Texas to the golden beaches of California, and the bustling city of New York, we see Bridgette’s orchestrated rise from rags to riches, Angie’s pursuit to achieve her dreams of becoming a top reporter at The New York Times and Elizabeth’s extravagant existence as daughter to one of the richest men in America, and wife to Millionaire mogul Adam Pain.

Bridgette longs for a life of luxury, and a man to provide it. She is discovered by Playboy, meets a producer and starts a relationship. Unsatisfied, she moves onto the owner of numerous law firms, and after Adam Pain, Elizabeth’s husband who she falls in love with. It ends badly, and she meets Grant yet another Millionaire, but she resumes her affair with Adam. Elizabeth who is aware of Bridgette asks Adam to leave her, but it ends in humiliation, and she conspires to expose Bridgette to Grant, hoping that she would flee New York. She succeeds. But not for long, she winds up back in New York on the arm of an even richer man Paul. Is this her fairytale ending?

Angie, Bridgette’s only childhood friend has dreamt of being a reporter for the New York Times for as long as she can remember and her dreams and hard work pays off. Years later she is assigned to report on a scandalous all - revealing exposé about Bridgette. Angie finds a woman who has stealthily clawed her way to the top, and accumulating a substantial fortune. Will she be the one to bring her down?

Elizabeth grows up in the lap of luxury! She finds the man of her dreams and marries him! Her life is perfect! Bridgette however has plans of her own and hijacks and try's to destroy her carefully built life. Elizabeth wont take this from anyone and try's to gain control of her life...the final straw at having been named in the article, along with the revelation of Adam’s cheating, she files for divorce. Life definitely hasn't worked at like she planned!

Of course I bloody was!

Before......


If he asks, I'm in the bathroom indefinitely!

I was watching a show the other night, and this women was on a date with an absolute wanker, and she finds herself lurking around the bathroom for half the night trying to avoid the lecherous clutches of a man that will never get another date. She is wondering why her friend thought he would be perfect for her when clearly he is only interested in sex.
It got me thinking about the whole dating scene and what people put themselves through to find "True Love'.  Blind dates, setups, chance meetings - sitting opposite from a total stranger trying to discover common ground or a connection. Trying to work out if he is MR Right or MISS Right based on Job description, car driven and surface information. People forcing themselves into situations where rejection for the most part is imminent. Then to do it all again the following weekend. This can go on for years, with most people just bumbling through life with this list of expectations on what the other half of them should match up too.
I've been reading a book called "Don't be THAT Girl' by Travis L Stork about helping women identify the self defeating behaviours that prevent women from getting the most out of their lives and their relationships. It's actually really interesting to see why lots of men and women find it hard to make a connection and why they end up on the market for so long. Travis lists certain types of women and explains why they keep ending up with the wrong sort of people.

Agenda Girl, Yes Girl, Drama Queen Girl, Bitter Girl, Insecure Girl, Desperate Girl, Working Girl and Lost Girl where categories that seem to fit most of the girls who are finding it hard to meet the right guy. I haven't got to the bit about the guy just being a total wanker and the fact that it could or probably is likely that there are just some normal girls out there with no category that still cant make it work. However she is still forced to go out and troll through the men of her city to try and make a connection.

After watching the show, reading the book and looking to the net and other shows for inspiration I think it has alot to do with there being no actual guideline like there used to be. Which was - have a boyfriend or two, find a guy (still the right guy but they didn't seem as fussy back then) and get engaged. Get married, have a couple of kids and happy ever after. All of that by 25 at the latest and your done. Locked in for better or worst.
These days, your lucky to get maybe 15% of the dating population doing that and the rest are wandering around aimlessly refusing to settle until its perfect in their head. The age for all this to happen has been pushed back, jobs, careers and fun taking the front seat and they end up 30 and think its time to get sorted, only to find out the other side isn't that interested in getting serious just yet. After all, they are only 35 and still want to have it all.

Woody Allen

I just watched From Rome with Love written and directed by Woody Allen. Man I'd like to get into his head. He is one left of center guy who chooses to create the most extraordinarily strange movies that make you wonder at the end if he has a normal thought in his head. I really love the way he thinks.
This movie has left me a little speechless in that it didn't make sense but it totally did. All these little stories that didn't go with each other their only common ground that they were set in Rome Italy. Half the movie was in Italian and as where the characters including Woody himself.
Well done- you are a genius!!!

Book critic

I'm reading From Highheels to Handcuffs by H.M Goltz at the moment. I am part of a website called Goodreads that provides readers like me who read many many books with a place to keep lists of books they plan to read, are reading or have read, along with the opportunity to enter a challenge to discover how many books you can read in a year.
So anyway I'm reading this book and 50 pages in I logged onto Goodreads to update my status on the book. I found myself wondering how this book which I'm clearly hating on (really boring) come to be published. As a writer myself, I try to keep an open mind because everyone writes differently and give positive and encouraging feedback in my reviews, but it was virtually impossible. I am not a book critic, but I have read alot of books in my lifetime and I just couldn't find much that was nice to say about it. The wife who's name I cant even remember because she is so boring is going into detail about every job she has ever worked at including a menu to a dinner at a marketing event she organised 15 years ago. The menu has 10 courses! The writer seems to elaborate on things that are just not fucking interesting, the character (still cant remember who) is a 40 something women who's second husband is cheating on her, has decided to go into the police force in case when she gets out of the academy she is sent away so she doesn't have to break up with her husband - she is just slowly going to faze him out instead of just telling him she knows he has been shagging around and kick him to the curb. She has been unable to have kids with either husband (I haven't found out why though, I'm not far enough into this un-riveting story) This book has all the pieces but it just isn't fitting together right. I do not want to hear about the details of the police academy, I don't care!

I AM DREADING FINISHING IT!

If you don't get turned on, you're made of stone!

Bridgette Roberts has it all. She's sexy as hell and gracing the cover of the next Playboy.
 
 
 
 
 

Clearly they never laid eyes on this shitfest!

When people pretend they know what their talking about when clearly they have no idea and are just being judgemental fuckwits, it makes me think about where this so called grand advice they try and dish out comes from. There is no merit behind their purported wisdom, just random unwanted thoughts they let spew out of their mouths.
If you would like to tell a frazzled mother who is at her wits end with 3 kids who are all being total maniacs due to various reasons that have nothing to do with how this poor women is mothering them (some kids are just unstoppable) to control her screaming kids and go into detail about what they are doing wrong and how to rectify this and you have no kids of your own - you have a death wish.
If you are dishing out relationship advice to a friend when you are divorced, six broken engagements and a string of ex's then your information is probably unwanted.
You can't walk into a Law office and tell a lawyer what they are doing wrong, nor can you judge or interject into the way someone washes dishes at a restaurant or feeds their dog. You are not human kinds gift of knowledge on how to run their lives, world or job.
People can explain how to do a job, i.e a boss at work that suggests how they may improve on something if its warranted because that's their business, but if your not a boss or manager seriously stop and think before you try and force your opinions and apparent knowledge on people who did not ask or do not want your input on their life.
Everyone handles things differently, wants different things, and it's not up to you to tell anyone that they are doing it wrong.

No pressure - that kind of feels like pressure to me.

That moment when your cruising along doing what you have to do, and all of a sudden someone throws in a curve ball. By saying no pressure actually indicates there is in fact pressure, you should feel pressured, be pressure, exude pressure.

That's Awesome, and I feel really lucky!

Writing

Do you know the actual definition of Writing? I found this and thought you might find it interesting.......



Writing is the representation of language in a textual medium through the use of a set of signs or symbols (known as a writing system).[1] It is distinguished from illustration, such as cave drawing and painting, and non-symbolic preservation of language via non-textual media, such as magnetic tape audio.
Writing most likely began as a consequence of political expansion in ancient cultures, which needed reliable means for transmitting information, maintaining financial accounts, keeping historical records, and similar activities. Around the 4th millennium BC, the complexity of trade and administration in Mesopotamia outgrew human memory, and writing became a more dependable method of recording and presenting transactions in a permanent form.[2] In both Ancient Egypt and Mesoamerica writing may have evolved through calendrics and a political necessity for recording historical and environmental events. The oldest known use of writing in China was in divination in the royal court.

why do women like bastards?

Why do women like bastards? What is it about uninterested, unfeeling men that increases the pulse?
'I think it's that bastards bring out our sexuality: because that's the only way we can win them over. They make us feel like real women: not mothers, not wives, not providers, not facilitators, but predatory, earthy, excited and whole.'
'That sounds like something. You'd read on an advertising hoarding.' Liz laughs: They're all the same, Nina.'
'No: a bastard isn't needy. He's self-contained - and that makes us desperate for his approval, and him enormously powerful.'
'We don't have to fall for it.'
'But we do, don't we? Because we want to be wanted. If we can't pull it off with our skills, that only leaves our sexuality.'

Bitter Sweet Symphony

I sit in one of the chairs while Ben sprawls on the bed. As the food arrives he pats the space next to him: 'Kick your shoes off and climb on- I promise not to pounce unless you look willing.'
I do as instructed. I say: 'What does willing look like?' He stares at me and I smile. He pulls me to him. 'It looks just like that.'

Do you really believe that?

People talk themselves into believing what they are saying, when really they want something else, they are just too scared, pig headed or freaked out to admit it. Just because you say it, doesn't make it true!!!!

Friday, 22 March 2013

You know who you are!!!



Funnily enough I can pretty much garantee that you will try and be my friend again - Its getting boring!!!

Let's get out of here!

Sometimes I just want to get out of here! Escape, do stupid things with no consequences, do nothing at all, talk about nothing, be someone else, wear a disguise, go on a holiday, dream, eat, laugh, smell new smells, wear different clothes. That's why I read, that's why I write!

The English Language


And just as soon as the enchantment had arrived, it was gone.

 
One minute you're all nice, happy, charming and funny. Someone I think I like and the next you're bitter, twisted and deleting people off your social media's for no good reason at all.
Talking, asking questions, seeming like a pretty great person and the next flat, disillusioned and mean. Everyone has their ups and downs, changes their mind or is busy, but your lack of remorse is the worst!
Its painful annoying and sinister and makes me think I don't even really like you...Then your nice again.
 
 
 Seriously????????

French equivalent to LOL

 
 
The French equivalent of ‘LOL’ is ‘MDR’ or "mort de rire” which means “dying with laughter." Heh. Those crazy French.

acquainted with a subject

The best way to become acquainted with a subject is to write a book about it.

Benjamin Disraeli (1804 - 1881)

Just send in the clowns!!!!

Do you ever wake up some days, and wish you had on call entertainment to make your day fabulous? I do!
Most of the time I am very busy doing my thing. And by thing, I mean writing. And then there are the other things which include but are not limited to; blogging, reading, research for the book I am currently writing - Ally in Disguise. Promo for Gold Digger and my blog, updating my social medias, more research in the for of Movie and show watching. (I have to keep totally up to date on most things so my books and the information inside are current.)
That's just work - I do however enjoy my work which is something alot of people cant say that they enjoy. But it can become blurry - I work from home and it's hard to be alone for such long periods. I am a social person, I like people. It can get a little lonely! So every once in a while it would be nice to be able to laugh, be merry and enjoy others company. That and the fact that experiencing things, doing things and seeing things helps make me a better writer. Imagination is the key to being a successful writer, but so is living life.

Adrianne Bailon - Icon

 
 
 

The Face of Empire Girls, a quirky show based in New York, that features Adrianne and her best friend Juilessa and their busy lives as Singer, fashion Icon, Nailpolish guru and TV host respectively, is something I watch religiously. Adrianne Bailon is a shaker and mover, and someone who I admire. She has transformed her life into something movies are made of and I have nothing but respect.
