*looks both ways quickly* it’s the month of fear, of scary things coming out and playing with your mind, your heart. It’s the time for one country in the world, to go apeshit with glee, and the rest of us, looking on, not really understanding what’s truly that interesting about one night. Yeah, we get it, but, well, we also don’t at least not here in Australia, it’s only just recently become something that happens, even as we have done the ritual at least for my whole life.
And yeah, if you haven’t guessed, it’s the month of Halloween.
WIP / New Release like Facts
Since it’s only really been a couple of weeks nothing really changed all that much, still…
This month I’m concentrating on two things only. My horror short, which is still 2K from being finished, I’m dragging my arse on this one. However, I’ve gotten to the point that I’ll be sitting down this week and finishing it, even if it turns out shit. I want this out in October, and if I can’t finish it then there’s no way that even a possibility.
As it is, I’ve probably got a small chance that it will come out before November.
The second is my Christmas story because, well, I don’t want to be like this again, and also I have a rough plan for December, one that I’d really like to get done, but I’m not sure if it will or not.
In The News
Last week (or this week), I believe was/is bisexual week. I wasn’t going to say anything about this because even though I am bisexual I’ve never come up with a problem about it. I’m not sure if its because I basically got dumped by all my friends when I was 20 or the fact that I just don’t give a shit about what people think of me. And I haven’t since I was 18.
The funny thing about what people say, and what it’s like to be. Or what other people say, other people say, is that I like to think that most people are actually bisexual and that the number of true heterosexuals is the same as true homosexuals.
I have this thought, and I’ll keep it, even as people try and tell me I’m wrong. But we have grown up in a society that says we are straight and we have to fight a lot just to be gay, we have to fight what the world has taught us just to be something different from what they say. And so if you are bi that swings more towards the opposite sex, well, wouldn’t you only see yourself as straight?!
My point to this is the facts of ‘experimenting’. I don’t give a shit who you are, or what age, if you’re able to get it up and fuck a person of the same sex, and enjoy it, then you are to some degree bi.
I have known men, and women, who are truly straight, and they are the ones that are comfortable with themselves and those around them. And I have found that they are that way at a much younger age then the rest of us.
But its my own opinion and probably one that didn’t need to be spoken. But it’s what this piece is for, it’s why it’s labelled, you get to understand me better by my opinion on the world around me.
Up Coming Gossip
In November I’m planning on starting on my first novel, a thriller. I’m so excited about this book, though it will be written in the way of a trilogy though until I actually start writing it I can’t tell you if those will actually work.
I have started to write reviews out myself, or at least on GR give stars. It’s my sister’s follow-on thought to the fact that I wrote a review of a fellow author because she asked. My sister said it would be a good idea for me to get my head around critically thinking of others books once I finished with them. That way my head should have that same effect for my own stories.
But, this isn’t really what this part is about, more a thought on why I thought to add this portion.
I actually think, even as some reviews are depression to me, which I’ve done very well when it comes to people reviewing my work, even in the star department. Now, I may not be getting solid 5 stars, or even 100 reviews, but think the amount that I’ve gotten for one story in a month is pretty impressive as a newbie author.
