I have been really busy writing lately. Blog posts and my book. Check out Blue Monkey Writingto see my latest post on how writers can slay the 2 twin witches (Gluttony and Sloth) which is the first of a blog series on how writers can combat the 7 deadly sins.
Since it is October, I have 3 months left in Australia and it is really scary, because I don’t want to have to go and be away from my boyfriend. I really like being in the same city as him and to have the kind of choice to be able to see him whenever. So, please keep me in your prayers as I will be doing some major job searching in the next for weeks.
Check out new pictures for the Haunting October Short Story Extravaganza Writing Contest!!! It isn’t too late to join! All you must do is use one of the pictures or a few to prompt you in your writing. And then write a short story. :) You have until the end of October and then send it to me at devinberglund (at) live (dot) com to have a chance at winning the contest! :) I have prizes! :)
It is the Brisbane festival at the moment – which leads up to the big fireworks and light show on the Brisbane River known to many Brisbane-ites as “River Fire”. Tonight after I got done writing and after Johan finished studying we walked to South Bank and got some yummy sandwiches at “Grilld” and then we walked to the river and sat down on the edge of the river. It was beautiful. The city scape reflecting their lights onto the water reflecting bright reds, blues, and pinks. Music played in the speakers as Johan and I enjoyed our meal.
I reached to grab a french fry (by the way they have some of the most yummy fries made with sea salt and rosemary!) but, yes I picked up my french fry and dipped it in the sauce when all of a sudden next to my pinkie finger there was a visitor on the spot next to my sauce. As soon as I saw the cockroach I started freaking out. It scuttled on my lap and then off and over the ledge. I stood up and started doing a freaking out touched a bug dance! What a close encounter with a disgusting existence!
What a close encounter with a disgusting existence!
So that was my scary experience today. But then when we got back to my apartment – I went to use the bathroom and when I came back Johan told me there was a cockroach in my apartment. I sorta freaked out again… it’s just a gross feeling that there might be a nasty presence in my apartment… maybe I should name him… until I find him… AND THEN… I WILL KILL HIM!!!!!
Just lately I have realized that I hate it when certain people have bad attitudes. They are so negative and speak as though everything is about them. What do you do when people act this way? I see things like this on facebook all the time – I am so close to commenting, but I always stop before posting because I don’t want to be seen as the rude person who caused me to want to post by others!
Getting some words written! :)
Getting Some Words Written
For the past few days my boyfriend and I have been accountable with each other him with his studies and me with my writing. I am so thankful I have someone to kick me in the behind when I need it. I am so excited about this story! I told you all before that I would tell you all the name of the book. How about the next post? In order for me to release the name, I need everyone to comment below answering a question inspired from the links below. Then also make sure to post on the links and follow the blogs.
