Music Inspiration

Below is "With Me" by Sum41, which is the main song and inspiration for my newest story With Me, so please listen to it and I hope everyone likes it. Also, I found a picture that reminded me of Ella reading and another picture of Joy and Millie (Aimee Teegarden). If you haven't read and reviewed the first chapter of With Me, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do so. I know that many of you are extremely busy but I would really appreciate some opinions and feedback. Thank you and let me know what you think of the song.

With Me - Chapter One

HMC said something that really helped me: My mom always says that when you're lost go back to the last place you remember. The Prettiest Thing was the last story you completed where I didn't feel like you were lost or struggeling to find the words, the storyline, or the creativity to complete it. I hope that in returning to their lives it will help you find your voice again.

Thank you very much to everyone for the kind and encouraging words. I am so happy today because, I think I finally have my imagination back - thank god. The first chapter of With Me is now posted on and the words definitely flowed out of me. This chapter is a long one and it is setting things up for another long story, much like The Prettiest Thing. I hope everyone enjoys this. Please check it out and review it for me. I really want people to like this. I feel at home with these characters and writing them again was so natural for me. I would love to hear what everyone thinks about it. Thank you very much and I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend.

Status of Things

I think I burned myself out. I had a feeling it was going to happen but I kept pushing myself anyway and now, my brain feels as if it has been beaten to a pulp. It is slowly getting better but I have decided a few things during this very long writer's block of mine.

The Nicest Thing
A Slow Burn
The Beauty and the Tragedy

These three stories - as well as The Prettiest Thing - will BE DELETED from my account by tomorrow. I want to take them down and rework on them since I have many things I want to change with each story. This is an early warning so hopefully, when I take them down and tweak things, they will be perfet when I repost them at a later date.

While those four stories will be deleted, a new one will be posted. It just came to me today while I was in the park and I will be dedicating myself to this one for a while.

With Me by Kate
A continuation of “The Prettiest Thing”. Ella and Brett deal with their long distance relationship while at different colleges. Trevor and Joy try being parents while also working for their own dreams. And Lyla and Andy struggle with her depression.

It is going to take place right after The Prettiest Thing and will deal with everything that people were wondering about between the end of the first story and the beginning of The Nicest Thing. I think as I write this, it will only make The Nicest Thing even better so be on the lookout for that. I hope there are still people interested in Brett and Ella and the whole list of characters as well as interested in my stories. I know I have lost a lot of readers judging by the lack of traffic on this blog but to those who have stuck around, thank you a million times.

Nothing Else Matters - Chapter Four

I have channeled my writer block frustrations into my character of Will Kelly from Everything Will Be Alright and I was able to update chapter four of Nothing Else Matters, which centers around Will Kelly and Lucy Banks. There is some sex in this chapter so be forewarned. Please read and review it for me. Thank you.

Lucy and Will

Better than Anything

I have written a new one-shot and posted it on Better than Anything is an exercise to try and help me get past my writer's block. I know that this isn't the best thing I have ever written but I hope that it isn't complete crap. I love writing these one-shots that aren't always "fluffy". I try to create characters with flaws trying to overcome their demons and I hope that this one-shot succeeded in at least that. Please read and review for me and below are pictures of Antonia and Max from the story. Also, on my profile, two more pictures of the characters are posted as well. Thank you and Happy Friday everyone.

Tyson and Amy

Thank you to everyone for the suggestions of helping me get my inspiration back. Many of the songs that were listed are songs I already have but I gave them another listen. I love how everyone knows how much I love music and how much it has to do with my writing. For some reason, I have been listening to a lot of Nine Inch Nails lately so we will see what comes of that.

Right now, I am working on a one-shot for Tyson and Amy from The Prize. I have a lot of ideas for their story but I just am trying to figure out how to start it. It is going to take six years after The Prize ended and Tyson and Amy are now married with a five-year-old son, Sonny, and four-year-old daughter, Betty. Tyson and Amy are happily married but they have their problems - mainly Tyson's desire to want to return to the world of boxing and Amy's own professional aspirations. I make no promises as to when this short story will be finished but I just wanted to give everyone a head's up about it. Thank you everyone. You guys know that you are the best.





Monday, August 18, 2008


I am so sorry for not updating anything lately. I have lost count of how many times I have begun writing a story only to abandon it after two or three pages because I couldn't get into it and I thought it was crap. I have no idea what is going on with me lately. I do not have the desire at the moment to work on The Beauty and the Tragedy, A Slow Burn or The Nicest Thing. I have tried writing new chapters for all three but like I said, I cannot get into any of it. If anyone has any idea as to how I can get my inspiration flowing again, please let me know. I need help desperately. Thank you!

The Beauty and the Tragedy - Chapter 3

Finally! Sorry this took me so long but chapter three of The Beauty and the Tragedy is finally posted on so please head over there, read it and review it for me. Also, if you guys get a chance, listen to “Thirteen” by Big Star - the main song of this chapter. It will also become the main song of the story and will be referenced in many more chapters. I tried to find it on YouTube but I could only find fanvids or covers so if you want to listen to it and ignore the fanvid then you can at YouTube. I hope everyone likes the chapter. For some reason, it felt as if it took me forever to write and I don't even know if its good or not. I am so happy tomorrow is Friday. Hopefully, I will be able to update again soon.

The Aldridge Family

As I mentioned last night with the Conway family, here are pictures of Justin and Poppy Aldridge and their three children: Wallace, Amelia and Danny. I am working on the third chapter of The Beauty and the Tragedy but things have kind of been crazy here the past couple of days. We had massive storms Monday night and I just got power back last night. I promise to have the third chapter up though within the next day or two. Thank you to everyone who has showed an interest in this story even though I confused the hell out of a lot of you lol. And to those who think they have guessed the secret... you are probably right. I have the best readers who know me far too well. Have a wonderful Wednesday everyone!

The Conway Family

For no reason whatsoever, I wanted to post pictures of the Conway family from the Wonderwall series. Below are pictures of Abe and Cecilia Conway and their two children: River and Grant. The actor I found for Grant is exactly how I imagined him to look and he is even near the exact age I need him to be at the beginning of the story. I really like this collection of photos because I think they all have a lot of similarities between them that could make them look like a family. I will post pictures of Aldridge family later tomorrow if anyone wants to see them.

The Beauty and the Tragedy - Chapter 2

Chapter two of The Beauty and the Tragedy is now up on so as usual, please let me know what you think after you read it. Each chapter is going to alternate point of views between Danny and River and this chapter is from Danny's mind. Next chapter will be from River and so on and so on. Grant Conway was introduced in the briefest way but I promise that everyone will get plenty of page time in this story. I definitely am planning for this story to be a long one so strap yourselves in. Also, is it possible for someone to make me a piece of fanart for this story? I hate asking you guys to do anything but I would really love and appreciate it. Thank you very much in advance.

Matty and Libby

I am currently working on the second chapter of The Beauty and the Tragedy and in this chapter, Danny and River will be hanging on with Matty Reed - a fan favorite. I am eager to include him in this story as well as his love interest, Libby Windham. Also, since a lot of you thought I had gotten rid of Lawson for some reason, he will also be in the second chapter. I hope to have the new chapter either up tonight sometime or tomorrow so I will let you know when it is completed and up on Below are pictures of Matty and Libby.

Character List

I'm sorry about The Beauty and the Tragedy. Yes, I have made several changes in regards to how things were in Some Kind of Wonderful but... I wanted to. I wanted to make these particular changes so I did. I am sorry though because now, those seem to be overshadowing the story of River and Danny. Thank you to 7 years and Cope for pointing out that contradiction I had written and I have fixed it. I also have edited out the other little grammar mistakes but... Nikki is still married to Chase. I am keeping that change as well as the others. If you do not want to read the story because of that, it of course it is your decision and I am sorry that I have lost you as a reader for this story. Also, about Abe being there for Ali and Brady's surgery, I explained that in the first chapter as well.

Below, I have posted a character list - I hope this is what you wanted Bulma-Veggie :) - to help people with the large cast as well as their ages just in case. I have also posted pictures of Chester Ryan and Eve Adams from how I pictured them in Something Pretty as well as the earlier Wonderwall stories. Thank you to everyone who has read and reviewed the first chapter of The Beauty and the Tragedy. I am forever grateful. I see this one being another novel-type story like The Prettiest Thing but only if people are still interested in reading it. Thank you and Happy Friday everyone.
