Big News, Y’all (Texas-Sized)

Here’s my big news of the week, guys! 😀

The World Of The Writer

*deep calming breath*

It may be hard for me to get through this post with using too many exclamation points/italics/all caps, but I’ll try to tone it down.

First off, the least exciting of the two pieces of news… I finished the first draft of my WIP… which is not a work in progress anymore. 🙂 I’m so glad to have finished it. My reaction was a combination of relief and…

Tom Hiddleston excited

That pretty much sums it up. Thank you, Tom Hiddleston.

Now for the second piece of super exciting news… the really, really big one.

I am officially a published author.

She lost everything she’d ever dreamed of.

Fourteen-year-old Pam Wilson’s life is going perfectly. She and her best friend, Lauren, are becoming an amazing volleyball duo, and her dreams of playing in the Olympics are coming along wonderfully. Then a car accident paralyzes Pam from the waist down, and…

Miscellaneous Mondays ~ I Wonder

That they would feel empty… and be filled by Him.

A Glimpse of Starlight

I wonder what it’s like to look out over the vast sea of a crowd and know that they are cheering for you.  I wonder what it’s like to know that there are thousands of viewers all over the world, with their eyes trained on your face, hanging onto your every move. I wonder what it’s like to win big.

superbowlI wondered those things last night, as I watched the Superbowl.  Sometimes it’s hard to remember that those are real people out there, people with quirks and hobbies and interests, people who hate spinach and fall for mint-chocolate-chip ice cream. I wonder what’s it like to know who you are and also who people think you are.

They all say the same thing, that this is the game they want to win more than anything.  It’s the moment they dreamed of since they were kids.  It’s a dream come…

So this was an interesting on, because nobody commented on what it was….yeah.

The answer to it was Toy Story 3, when Mr. Potato head meets up with the others again…remember? Anyway hopefully this next one will be easier for you guys! I’ll give you a hint, it is an oldie but a goodie, but they still haven’t come out with a second one. I don’t want to give away to much information, so I hope that helps! Good luck everyone!Drains

The Silent War Against Death

It’s so sad that this is ignored. Remind you of anything? Maybe… MLK Jr?

So this week, on Thursday, January 22nd, I participated at the annual March for Life in Washington D.C.

If you don’t know what the March for Life is, please continue reading.

The March for Life is when people, usually Americans—although people from out of the country are also present—, come together in peaceful protest against the legal right to abort unborn children.  It is a huge gathering.  This year, there were over 650,000 people in Washington D.C., all present to defend unborn babies.  There was no rioting, no jeering, no wrath from the protesters; only praying, chanting, and marching.  We went right up to the Supreme Court Building, where all of this started in the controversial trial of Roe. Vs. Wade.  The marching started at 1:00 and didn’t end for hours.

Does all of this surprise you?  Do you think I’m lying?

The thing is, it wouldn’t surprise me if you…

Only One

Woo, this is a deep post, and very thought provoking.

Lily

“Only one person died.”

Only one?  What a relief!

But wait….  One person with an entire life. All their hopes, all their dreams.  Who cares?  How does it affect you?  How will it affect me? How many people would be affected by that one death?

Every hope.

Every dream.

Every chance.

Every change.

What becomes of them?

We say one life is no big deal.  We think nothing of it.  But what if it was your father?  Your mother?  What if it was your brother?  Your sister?  Would it still not matter?  Could you still say “Only one person died.”?  And…

What.

If.

It.

Was.

You?

Would that life be so insignificant?  Would it still not be a big deal?

Every hope.

Every dream.

Every chance.

Every change.

Extinguished.

Who will carry on what you started?  You could have changed the world.  You could have made a difference.  You could…

*cough cough* Whoops…

The World Of The Writer

No, I didn’t get frozen in ice.

Sorry.

*laughs at self*

Yes, it’s been a while since I posted. Thanks to my computer shutting down while updating, I have been stranded from the internet for… I’m not sure how long it’s been. Since the last time I posted. 😉

So, that is my apology. And a joke (because jokes always make things better…)

A computer operator received this error message:

THREE THINGS IN LIFE ARE GUARANTEED: TAXES, DEATH, AND COMPUTER CRASHES

GUESS WHICH ONE JUST HAPPNED.

The Avengers: We Have A Tiger – Part One

Hey, everyone! I just started posting the parts for a new story on my other blog! Please check it out and let me know what you think! 🙂

The World Of The Writer

At the request of the amazing erinkenobi2893, I’ve decided to post this Avengers fanfiction I wrote a while back. It’s quite long (twenty-eight pages) so it’s going to be split into quite a few parts. I hope that you will all enjoy it!

*DISCLAIMER: This story is based off of the end of The Avengers. There are illusions to spoilers for said movie, so read with caution, but most are not major. Thor: The Dark World, Iron Man 3, and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, are not taken into account, and have not been watched by the author. That said, enjoy. 😉

“You guys worked together very well,” Nick Fury stated. “I know some of your fellow Avengers are hard to get along with—” A snort came from Steve Roger’s direction, and Fury glared at him. “—but overall you worked great as a team.” A knock sounded at the…

Reasons Why I Loved “Captain America: The First Avenger”

Erin got this so right, guys! 😀

The Upstairs Archives

Hello, dear readers, and sorry about the absence. I really shouldn’t have an excuse and if I do have one, it’s 1) college, 2) rough transfers, and 3) poor time management. So, really my fault this time, and I hope you enjoy the post.

Now, on to the point! I’ve probably told everyone about how I saw Captain America: The First Avenger on Sunday and absolutely loved it. I’ll probably review it once I have the chance to see it twice (I make it a rule not to review anything until the second watching, for obvious reasons; not that the second watch often changes my initial opinion), but for now I’m making a list of reasons why I loved it and why you should go see it if you haven’t yet. 😉 So, without further ado (and in no particular order):

  1. Because underdogs. Everyone cheers for an underdog in a…
