Slowly But Surely

Hello everyone!!! It's me (not like anyone actually knows who I am)...just a small update, because I'm really bored and, although I'm in my lecture, I'm not really paying attention, since I'm at the back...

Anyway, you should all be happy to know, that I'm nearing the end of my second draft, and the next secret I will tell you is the name of my main character!!! I can't wait! So far I'm on chapter 22, and that is halfway complete, and I'm really really sorry about this chapter (actually I'm sorry about the ending of this book, it's really cruel)...I do have a dark side so that just...yeah...

So very soon, I will be working on the third draft...if my reviewers can get to me soon...and the final draft will be up by Christmas or New Year (hopefully). I actually can't wait! It's going to be so good! You know initially I had thought it would be easy to write this...but any writer knows...IT IS TOO DAMN HARD! Ideas flow in and out, and I just can't get the right train to finish this...

On another note...When I started this new story I did say I was going to use names from the old story (like Arion, Nyx and whatnots) but I realised, if I want the names to mean something in this story, it has to be related to what I want...I can't just make up the meaning, when there are already many. However, I may use some of the old names for the other stories, like for Dark (I think, especially for Dark, because I'm going to be using a certain theme for that one).

Moving on...I know I'm talking in bits right now, but I'm switching from listening to the lecture and writing's annoying! I want to sleep, play League of Legends and work on my story!!!! SOMEONE GET ME OUT OF HERE!

Speaking of League of Legends...WHO'S READY FOR THE FINALS!!!!! I can't wait! I don't know who I want to win...although I'm more for Samsung White...who do you root for? Anyway...I actually can't wait, and I bet there will be a Pentakill in one of these games, both teams are so AWESOM!!!!!!!!

So, yes, that's it, and do with this what you want, because I don't really care anymore (except copying, I hate copiers!).

Hello once again, today is the day! League of Legends semifinals and Doctor Who!!! Whovians! You ready!? Summoners! You ready!? Let's get this party started! I'll start off with the Doctor Who review, since, it's going to start pretty much before the semifinals of League of Legends. So for now, let's talk about something else.

It's hella cold! Here in London, it's not that bad, but I am still cold...probably because I'm not doing much, but I'd rather be somewhere warm...oh well, this is the life I got...I gotta live with it. Anyway...Labyrinth...sequel...(Cue fangirl screams!!!!!!)

Last night I discovered the most exciting thing to ever happen in my obsessive life...The Henson Company is planning a Labyrinth SEQUEL!!!!!! I honestly can't wait for's my dream come true! It's...gah! I can't even!!! Reading all the comments on the articles that profess this new development, I'm not quite sure I want this sequel anymore...You see you have to understand that Labyrinth came out in 1986, and it is 2014...many still want David Bowie' know...but looking at him now, I don't think he'll be right for the part...I hope they make the sequel classy, not something that pretty much does what every sequel does...SUCK! It's got to be good, my suggestion is, to have a completely different story, but let Sarah (i.e. Jennifer Connelly) and Jareth (David Bowie) cameo. If they're going to include the original cast, it's not going to be very good, Bowie isn't as he was before, and he was at his peak back then, Jenny (yes I'll call her what I want) is...well, no longer a teenager, so how are you going to use them for the cast. I'd prefer if it was a remake, but of course, people will be critiquing it a lot harsher than it really should be, so I won't say any more.


So, now, let's talk about something different...No not going to happen, Labyrinth all the way!!! I hope they use one of the fan fictions on, there are so many good ones. I'm not joking, I may actually use one to create a film...not using their character names, but the stories themselves. These are really good stories. Like I said, I'm basing my story The Great Seven: Earth on these fan fictions, you all know! I am going to be uploading it soon...I'm on chapter 21 by the way, and almost on my way to finishing it. But yes, I hope they get inspiration there, because the theory on Tumblr is really lacking, I mean, come one, goblins that are the younger siblings, that weren't fetched by "Sarah" before time ran out...that's not really a very good theory. The ones about Jareth being (like the Doctor) the last of his kind, and trying to hold onto the very fabric of existence is probably cooler than the recurring adventures in the Labyrinth.

If I were to do a sequel, it would be based on either Of Dreams and Broken Things, What's Past is Prologue, or The End of Days. I'll post up the links later, but I would use either one of these as the basis, not that stupid theory on Tumblr (Sorry, I know it's not that stupid, but the background behind these ones are so much cooler. I mean, the fairy world on the brink of oblivion and destruction is so much better than a lonely magician who's gone insane and thinks every dark haired girl, called Sarah, is his Sarah.

I hope they think to use more of the underground, or the fairy world, like include other mythical beings like (and I know it's cliche, but hey, if it can fit) unicorns, pegasus, dragons, giants, etc. It would make the adventure even more epic, and more real for us, since CGI is a big thing nowadays

Anyway, that's my rant for now, and I leave you with another Labyrinth based picture, I found on DeviantART (oh and the link to the artist is actually on the picture so click it if you want to see more like it - NOT PROMOTING!):

Tea, Creativity, and Bad WiFi Connections

Once more I am in a cafe, writing a blog post, drinking Chai Tea Latte and writing my story. I'm still on Chapter 20, for those of you keeping up, I am almost done with it and will soon be moving onto Chapter 21...FINALLY! It's been a long time in the making, because I just can't be bothered in the evening. You know? I just want to rest, play League of Legends and wind down for sleep. I've just been so tired lately.

Oh speaking of Leagues...WHO'S READY FOR THE WORLD SEMIFINALS! I AM!!! Although...I may have to watch the rebroadcast, because I'll probably be watching Doctor Who at the same time...Yes, I'll be watching the new episode with Peter Capaldi, Mummy on the Orient Express.

Are all you Whovian's ready for that? I know I am. I literally can't wait, it's combining my two favourite franchises (well I say franchise), The Mummy (1999), and Agatha Christie's Hercule Poirot.  It's the best! As I've said to my friends, it's going to be AWESOME! I can't believe they're incorporating Agatha Christie again!'s not her directly, but her most famous detective. Seriously, Poirot's most infamous case The Murder On The Orient Express I can't wait!!!!

Sorry...fangirling there...Where was I? Oh yes, I'm in Starbucks, writing this post...taking a break from the novel...Yeah, yeah, I know! Get back to work on it! Well, I've worked on it for an hour straight...although I could do more, but I have a seminar in 56 minutes (YES I HAVE TO BE EXACT!)...well, 56 minutes from the time I've written this part down. So I can't completely absorb myself.

Anyway...All alone here in this lonely cafe, because I'd rather go down the writer's road. I remember my Screenwriting tutor saying it's a lonely career, but that's the best thing for me. I'm left with my imagination, and I don't care, it's the most beautiful place I've ever been to, and I'd rather not let anyone else in. It's my place, and I'm happy there. Although...I do get lonely sometimes, but that's what my characters are there for, it's so blissful here.

Oh and for the "Bad WiFi Connections" part of the title is because the WiFi here is so bad, it'll probably take the entire year for this post to come up. That's pretty much it.

One more thing, don't miss this week's newest post on my reviews blog: Doctor Who: The Mummy on the Orient Express. It's going to be a blast!

As always do with this post what you will (except copy it), and I'll speak to you all soon. God bless. ^^

Cafe Musings and Wasted Batteries

I really need to remember to bring my laptop charger when I bring my laptop into uni. I'm currently running on 33% of battery. Seriously it's ridiculous that I keep forgetting. Anyway, I'm still working on chapter 20, but it's slowly getting there - that is chapter 20 of my story. So, this is the five hour wait, and I'm sitting here in Starbucks, writing random things. Since I need a little break from my story, I decided to fulfil my promise to write a review on one of my favourite TV shows, The Big Bang Theory, it's up and if you want the link it's right here:

The Big Bang Theory: The Hook-Up Reverberation

I know the blog is looking a little rushed, but that's because I still have a lot of things to do, both for university and my personal projects, so please be patient, I will get round to fixing all these things.

So, now I'm here, writing this blog post, with headphones in, because the noise in this cafe,'s not that bad, but sitting right next two me are two girls, who I think are from the university, and they are talking non-stop. With that in mind, I'm currently listening to Lindsey Stirling's Roundtable Rival. To be honest this song kind of reminds me of her other one, Master of Tides. They're both so cool, and you can just imagine dancing to them. Anyway, what am I going to do for the next 3 hours? I could go back to writing the story, and I will, but again, I will need breaks...I can't easily play League of Legends, the connection here isn't really that good, and I didn't bring my mouse (I've recently discovered how easy it is to play with a mouse, rather than the tap pad that comes with the laptop). I think the best distraction will probably be my iPad (if I can be bothered to reconnect to the wifi) or the most basic of basics, Facebook. 

Do you know how much time I waste on that thing. Honestly, there really is nothing special to it anymore, nor are there any good articles or posts or memes, it's all just repeats now...I guess the only good thing about it is I see great structures and architectures, from a page I've liked, but even so, those places make me jealous, and I really just want to travel to those places to say I've been there!

It's kind of annoying that I've now developed an impatience because everything has now become so fast and quick. Which reminds me, I pitched my documentary idea yesterday, and as predicted I forgot what I wanted to say, but what I've just written reminds me of what I wanted to do for my documentary.

Instead of actually making a documentary. I think I'll put the question to you: can you survive post-technology? So can you live without your telephone, mobile/cell phone, tablet (whichever: iPad or other tablet), the computer, your laptop, your TV and anything electronic (except the basics, lights, water, etc.) Anything to do with communication and Internet access, is basically off limits. I'll try it...for one week...perhaps after university. I'll document it, I know using a camera counts as using technology, but if it's just the camera, it should be fine...if someone else operates it for me.

Well, we'll see if I go through with it. I'll let you all know if someone will agree to do it with me. I'm sure there are many tribes in the remotest parts of the world that do survive without the internet and whatnots, but they are exposed to it one way or the other, I'm sure.

Anyway, wow...this was a long post. I shall leave you to continue browsing through Facebook or whatnots. As always, do with this post what you will...EXCEPT COPY! I HATE COPIERS! Bye! ^^

Delayed Timings

Hello lovely people...I don't know why...Anyway, there will be a rely in uploading the story. Don't worry I haven't given up on it, it's just taking a while to finish, since university has already started. I'm still editing the second draft. I may be able to finish it before December, and then I will be able to work on the third and final draft. For now, please be patient.

Ok so here's a little something about the inspiration of this book: I've used music, films and other stories as a basis for it. As before I will be posting on a different page, what the inspirations are, and I will be making a link to the blog for the story, once it's up and running.

In terms of the characters I've used many images from DeviantArt and other fantasy based wallpapers, pictures and animations. I will be writing another book (the next book in the series) after I've finished with this story. The next element will be Water, and well...I've already found the plot for it.

So, that's it for now, please, do with this post what you will, except copy it. Thank you! ^^

There Is A Difference Between Introverts And Extroverts

Ok, today I have gone from really happy to really angry. First the happy part: I know it's crazy, but I was actually quite happy talking to a friend in Starbucks today, just chatting about nothing and sipping coffee that was the ideal. He knew exactly what I felt when I said I'd prefer not to go out. Truthfully I hate going out, even though I do, and I often try to enjoy it, I hate it. The only time I like going out is if I'm shopping (either by myself or with one other person), watching a movie (usually with the cousins or with a friend) or out to a dinner (like a Chinese buffet or meal with the family). I hate going clubbing, or any big party gathering, it annoys me!

Anyway, as we were speaking I was getting excited, calm: I was all over the place, but I knew I was happy, sitting there just talking, that is my ideal of going out. So that was my high. The low was when I was in my seminar. Although it may seem petty, I hate being the one that goes up and writes on the board, I hate being the one that talks to the teacher, and says what we all think! AND YET MY CLASSMATES DON'T GET THAT!!!!! I HATE IT! I keep telling them that I'm not an extrovert, that I am actually quite shy, and the only reason I speak out in class is because I can, it's a topic that I can speak about, because it is the theme of the class, but when it comes to group discussions like in friendship groups, I'M THE QUIET ONE!!!!! I hate it when they assume I'm extrovert.

I may not sound it here on my blog, but I'm writing this post, and those of you who read them don't know me, you don't know who I am, you don't know where I live and I'm thankful, because you're all bunches of strangers, who I will never meet. You won't go looking for me, you won't ever know who I am, and that doesn't scare me. What scares me is talking directly to people! I'm scared they'd judge me, in fact I don't at all like talking to people, because I get so animated and loud, I don't control what I say, and it all just comes out in a blur for me.

Now...I've calmed down, and I've thought about what I've said. In the seminar I got really tired of being the one that goes up and writes on the board, I kept telling them I didn't want to do it, but I did it anyway, because NO ONE OFFERED TO DO IT FOR ME!!!!! I even told them I was an introvert. I told them what I was like and they still didn't get it! Now I've done this personality test loads of times and the truth is I'm an INFP. For those of you who don't know what that is, it's an introvert, and the description of this personality can be found on this link:
Of course, I've discovered I'm more INFP, than the first answer I got, when I took the test the first time. Now, although I've taken the test more than once, and I've come out more as an INFP, I always believe the first time is the deciding one, because I was more aware of who I was, when I took this test today. The first result I got was an INFJ, it is the most rarest personality out there, and I have to say, I am more INFJ than INFP, although there are elements of INFP in me, I'm still pretty sure I'm INFJ. To know what an INFJ personality is, the description can be found here:

So now you know who I am. I may seem extrovert to you, but if you do ever come across me, know that I don't ignore you because I don't like you, I just can't talk to you. You'll have to be the one to initiate any sort of conversation with me, and keep it up, because I will have no idea what to say, and if I do start rambling, it's because I don't want the conversation to end, it will always be awkward for me. I can't stay silent knowing you're right next to me and I can easily talk to you than go on my phone.

If you want to take this personality test it's free and the link is below:

So as always, do with this post what you will, and I'll see you next time. God bless. ^^

Restful Revision and Work

Well hello everyone. I've actually survived work! Yesterday was my first day. As promised I went at the usual 9:30 AM, and finished around 5:00 PM. When I started I didn't know what to expect, but having experienced it, I think I'll be at this company for a while. It's rather interesting and I am quite intrigued by the work we do. I can't say much yet, because I'm still starting out, but I am working on promoting awareness for Dyslexia.

I don't quite know much about it yet, but hopefully, over the next few weeks I'll be able to learn a lot more. The work I was tasked with, was editing things such as webpages, newsletters, icons and a little bit of video editing, although what I do is mainly organise the media into their respective folders, but it's a good start!

For the most part I was quite bored, because there wasn't much to do, just admin stuff, but hopefully soon we'll get more things going. So that's all I have to on that. Right now, I'm going to be working on my university assignments. assignment is more of a group thing and I need to film for it. The other one...I need to approve with my lecturer the topic of my essay and the last...I need approval for the subject of the mainly what I'm doing today is background reading and such.

I've already started. Just now I have finished watching the documentary Nanook Of The North. It is such a cute documentary I have to say. Watching an entire family try to live out the cold in the Arctic is such a brave thing, and I was so moved by it. Don't worry, I'll write a proper review later, but if you haven't seen it, and you are into documentary, it is one for you. It is one of the oldest documentaries in the history of film, and I do suggest it, because it is a really good example of how documentaries began.

Anyway that's all I'll be saying for now, and I hope you take my advice. God bless. ^^
