When I first read about Mr. Belzer’s suicide, I was conserned. I had three attempts last year. I just want to say this:
Suicide’s not the answer.
Please don’t let people think that your not worth nothing.
What would that do if your death was reported?
No more birthdays,
Dreams never coming true.
Never living to see your ememies’ losing to you.
I’m happy to say that Dick Belzer’s alive and well!
Please don’t end your life.
It does get better.
Go for broke!
It has been 10 years since I wrote my groundbreaking novel.
As we aproach the 10th anniversary of September 11, one story that has haunted me is Such Sweet Sorrow.
It was one of my first novels to tackle mature and adult issues such as adult-child relationships, cousin-incest; sexual awakening and longing. Many of the taboo subject matters that Butterfly and Ray face during the summer before 9-11.
This isn’t a story about the loss of innocence; it’s about a young woman’s awakening with her cousin whom she’s fallen in love with.
The lines of right and wrong are closed. There’s no love nor lust. It is a revelation of an era that was. An era that will never be the same.
The day the Twin Towers crashed on 9-11, was the day the innocence of America came to an end.
“Such Sweet Sorrow” is a bittersweet story about incestal love in an era that was destroyed forever.
I hope to get a chance to finish up the novel just in time.
Go for broke.
After a long battle with writer’s block, I’m finally back on the post. I was down, but not out! Here are some new items that I wanted to ‘blog’ about!
- The Good
I’m happy to say that today is Richard Starkey’s Birthday.
My bad! I meant to mention the fabulous singer from the Beatles and now one of the most successful(and semi-controversial*) man of the music world, Ringo Starr. He is 70 years young today! Happy birthday, Mr. Super Starr!
This is your ‘gift’! Enjoy!
2. The bad
I regret to announce that as soon as I move into my new flat my, the old email that I was formerly using will be no longer in service. In its place will be both a new email address and a post office box. The reason for this was that someone who was so dear to me has been betraying me. It was heartbreaking to find out that a person that I trusted betray me. I’ve chosen to forgiven the person responsable.
G’ Night, Flower Guys and Gals! (Watch Boys before Flowers on The N or the CW! I hope. 😀
There will be some “Remixes” on some of my post! 😀
*Semi-controversial — Adj, N. A person, place or thing that causes a debate because of the objectionable nature that only last for a brief period of time.
The Novels “The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins and Battle Royale by Koushun Takami are both semi-controversial novels aimed at young adults. The Japanese novel Battle Royale became a hit movie in 2000. The Hunger Games is set to be released in 2012.
I think that these two ‘novels’ might be plagiarized. I might have to do some deep investigation.
Do you think something’s a bit fishy with these two books?
Let me know!
Happy birthday to everyone celebrating a birthday this month!
After a brief hiatus from my blog, I experienced many revelations during my break. I witnessed Brack Obama’s inauguration on TV as a sea of races were beginning to awaken to a light of change. After writing (and) posting short stories, I decided to make novels more often from now on. There will always be some short stories in a blue moon or two.
After my first e-novel Such Sweet Sorrow isn’t going anywhere, I have come to a crossroads to put the novel on hold. During that time, I will make some changes to the story to please some of the fans. This is only a ‘test’ e-novel. If the novel is popular with the fans, then it will become a paperback novel that will be sent to you for free. I’ll keep you posted.
During my long break on MLK day, it snowed on Tuesday. It was snowing on the day of Brack Obama’s inauguration. I was so happy to experienced history in the making. As Brack Obama said, we have acted like children; it is time to put away our childish ways and face a new day. But in my opinion, you can’t grow up too fast.
