What's Going On? Ashamed, Humbled and... and Writing!

All right... well here goes nothing... & everything...

When I was younger, I had a teacher who from time to time used to lose control of his class and he would just shout out the phrase "pink elephants!"  This would silence our class and we would all start laughing, wondering what was going on in that head of our crazy teacher.  Little did we know, he just wanted us to shut the hell up.  Of course, for the remainder of the class he would say things like "don't think about those pink elephants!  Don't do it!  You're thinking it and you should really stop while you're ahead!"  Well, what else can you do with statements and questions like that but laugh, right?  Of course.

Uh oh.. the pink elephants are here and they're dancing and looking rather silly, don't you think?  LOL

So, I'm having a 'pink elephant' moment if you'll be so kind as to hear me out, while it may be embarrassing, it needs to be said!

I'm going to just come out and say it... I'm completely ashamed.  When I took an unannounced (not undiscovered) absence from writing my story(ies), I never thought I would be sitting here nearly a year later trying to figure out what to say to you guys.

I. Will. Be. Good.  .. Sort of!  >;-P
I'm really sorry its taken this long, that's all I can say really.  Those who know me well know that I've been going through a lot of stuff in my real life mostly health-related issues and while those are on the up nowadays, I still can't help but feel stupid on how I left my updates.  I left you hanging, I'll be the first to admit that, but I assure you I'm not going anywhere, I'm still here and in fact, I was never gone-- you can check my Twitter & my Facebook.  In fact, those of you who were kind enough to contact me regarding Interviews & Evaluations and my other stories, received a reply.  Thank you for those messages, it was those that encouraged me and warmed my heart.  Some of them actually brought me to tears that there are actually people out there who care about my silly little story and want to know if I'm going to continue it or not.  It's an overwhelming feeling, but one that I don't mind and truly appreciate!

I do have some exciting news though, depending on how you look it of course!  One of the reasons that I'm delayed in posting is that I signed up for two collaborations with fellow Twi-fanfic author Heartfelt-Pen for not one but two charitable fanfic events.  Cool, huh?  I'm very excited and very much looking forward to sharing these new one-shots (that could possibly turn into multi-chapter stories per your request!) and being able to help out for these unfortunate causes.

So, now I would like to formally introduce the events and the stories:

Fandom for Texas Wildfires

For this event, we collaborated together and wrote a story called The Pursuit.

Auctions for Schelmy - Fan Fiction Edition

For this event, we collaborated together and wrote Kindling the Sparks.

Also, after these charitable fan fics are issued, I will be finally posting my one-shots that I had written for the Fandom Gives Back: Autism Speaks, Fandoms Fight The Floods, Fandom for Tsumani and Foxy Fics!  See!!!  I have been busy!  So that's FOUR one-shots (side note:  one is actually a future-take for Interviews & Evaluations!  Have you read it yet?  If not, you will soon!)-- so really, three one-shots & a future-take!  How lucky are you!  Very! :-P

So, again I say thank you for the support, please be patient with me as I get back in the swing of things!  I'm here to stay.. unless someone pisses me off [no, no... I'm kidding!  You're totally stuck with me, guys!].  But, hey, that's a totally different story! :P LOL

Oh and, umm... please don't think about the pink elephants! ;)

Updated: Interviews & Evaluations - Chapter 11 - She Will Be Loved

By all means, this isn't an April Fool's Day joke!  This is for real!  My apologies on the wait, I'm really sorry about that!  I hope you find that it was worth it!

The Storyboard

The Teaser
Here's the teaser I posted with The Fictionators:
The pasta that sat in the art deco bowl before me made my taste buds salivate. I couldn’t wait to dive in and taste it. Before our waitress took off to her station, she grated fresh parmesan cheese over our entrees.
We were commenting on how everything looked so tasty and had begun to dig in. I had just swallowed a bit of my food and had barely taken a drink to wash it down when Ali decided to just come out of left field and surprised me with her topic of choice.
“So, you and Edward, huh?” She asked with a wink and playful poke of her fork in the air towards me. As my brain went blurry on her question, I could have sworn I heard her meow at me. What the hell, Alice?
I choked, putting my goblet of water down, “Wh-what?”
“It’s okay; he told me all about it.” She replied with a big smile, shrugging her shoulders.
Oh, my God, no… no… “What?” I wiped my mouth with my napkin, placing it back in my lap.
“Don’t worry; it’s not a big deal.” Um, it’s a very big deal!
“Oh, my God, Alice, what did he say?” I tried to play it off as I looked down at my plate. Hopefully, she didn’t know everything.
Of course I would tell her… when the time was right, but not now.

The Music
Maroon 5's She Will Be Loved

I had this song in my head the whole time while writing this song.  It's mainly the chorus that was the inspirational part, not the whole song in its entirety.

…  I've had you so many times but somehow
I want more …

I don't mind spending everyday
Out on your corner in the pouring rain
Look for the girl with the broken smile
Ask her if she wants to stay awhile
And she will be loved
And she will be loved
And she will be loved
And she will be loved

Checking My Pulse, Charitable Causes & Important Info

Hi, everyone!

Yes!  I'm still here & I'm not giving up!!  Real life has been crazy nuts-- if you follow me on Twitter, you know this already so I hope I'm not repeating myself too much.

To show you how busy I've been, I'm happy to let you know that I have signed up for two more charitable events.  Those events are:  The Fandom Gives Back for their spotlight on Autism & the other for Fandom for Tsunami benefiting the relief efforts in Japan!

Future-take - "In Print"

Yes, that's right!  The FGB piece is an actual future-take for Interviews & Evaluations!  It's already written and sent off-- imagine that! :)  See how easy that was?  And now, all you have to do is donate to the cause so you can read it!

My Progress, Random Stuff & Upcoming Projects

My Progress

So, some of you may have noticed, I posted a teaser for the next chapter of Interviews & Evaluations earlier this week. This is no lie, it is true.  I'm still in the works for finishing this chapter up and it will be posted ASAP. I apologize for the wait!!

Also!!  For those who you who don't know, you can now find I&E over at Twilighted!  I'm slowly but surely posting the chapters there, so please be patient with me!  I'm just so darn excited to share the news with you all!  Yay!  Check it out!

Random Stuff

Recently, I had the honor of being interviewed by one of my great friends for her blog.  SparklingWand has started a feature on her blog where she blast the spotlight on fellow authors.  This week, she picked me (seriously?!?!?! I'm still in shock! LOL) as her spotlight author.  So, head on over there for some interesting answers to some awesome questions!

Upcoming Projects

I'm proud to be able to announce that I have signed up for two fanfic charity groups!  I will writing a one-shot for each fundraiser!


Fandoms Fight The Floods

I'm very excited to be taking a part in both of these charities and I'm looking forward to sharing these new stories with you, as well.  Please do whatever you can to support these two groups as they both can use our help!
