How strange life is. It’s been a year and a half since I’ve posted on here so I figured I owed you guys an update! I’m still writing, working on an intriguing project at the moment that I truly wish I could share more details about, because I’m SO excited about it, but I wanted to tell you about my newest venture.

A little too slimy for me. Lots of dodgy practices. On top of that, extremely outdated. Listening in audiobook meant the narrator reading aloud lists of website links. Wanted to start the year off with something great and unfortunately, this wasn't i ...more

“Just because I don't know how to work a toy, doesn't mean I don't want it in my toy box.”
Leah Clifford, A Touch Mortal

“I want you to close your eyes. I want you to fall asleep first."
"Why?" She asked suddenly afraid he would slip out of the room as soon as she did.
"Because I'll be here in the morning.”
Leah Clifford, A Touch Mortal

“The water's not even blue, jackass.”
Leah Clifford, A Touch Mortal

“What is the point of being alive if you don't at least try to do something remarkable?”
John Green, An Abundance of Katherines

“I want to stand as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all kinds of things you can't see from the center.”
Kurt Vonnegut, Player Piano

“When writing a novel, that's pretty much entirely what life turns into: 'House burned down. Car stolen. Cat exploded. Did 1500 easy words, so all in all it was a pretty good day.”
Neil Gaiman

“To get a better idea try this: focus on these words, and whatever you do don’t let your eyes wander past the perimeter of this page. Now imagine just beyond your peripheral vision, maybe behind you, maybe to the side of you, maybe even in front of you, but right where you can’t see it, something is quietly closing in on you, so quiet in fact that you can only hear it as silence. Find those pockets without sound. That’s where it is. Right at this moment. But don’t look. Keep your eyes here. Now take a deep breath. Go ahead take and even deeper one. Only this time as you start to exhale try to imagine how fast it will happen, how hard it’s gonna hit you, how many times it will stab your jugular with it’s teeth or are they nails?, don’t worry, that particular detail doesn’t matter, because before you have time to even process that you should be moving, you should be running, you should at the very least be flinging up your arms – you sure as hell should be getting rid of this book – you won’t have time to even scream.

Don’t look.

I didn’t.”
Mark Z. Danielewski

“If death meant just leaving the stage long enough to change costume and come back as a new character...Would you slow down? Or speed up?”
Chuck Palahniuk, Invisible Monsters
