Welcome to my journal! It's only partially friends only.
My personal, real-life posts are locked, but anything
else I post is public.

I am adding friends, but only if I know you through any
of the communities I'm involved in here on LJ. :)

Hey everyone! I made this post on tumblr, so if you can't read, I'd appreciate it if you reblogged the post there. :)

I’m writing an original piece of fiction about four college friends/lovers in New York. I’m not finished with it yet, but I’d like to know if anyone sees any problems with it now. Any feedback/concrit would be appreciated. One of the main characters is a black woman, and the main discussion in this piece is when/if a woman owes a man sex. Also, a trigger warning is necessary for misogynist slurs.

If you can be a reader, just comment here or send me a message. :) Thank you!

16th-Jun-2016 07:28 pm - Self-Publishing

I've decided to go ahead and self-publish some of my short stories, one at a time. I haven't finished anything lengthy yet, and I just thought, what's the harm? I've just finished the formatting process using lulu.com and it wasn't exactly difficult. It was just time-consuming. I'm surprised lulu does this for free! The first one I'm selling is my story that was published this spring in my college's magazine, Tomatoes. I haven't worried myself over the cover or anything. It's very low-key right now.

Right now, the ebook is only available from lulu.com. If you'd like to support me and my writing, you can find it here for $1.49. If I'm approved, it'll also be sold in the Apple iBookstore, Barnes & Noble NOOK, Amazon Kindle, and Kobo "soon." I don't know how fast that'll happen, if it'll happen, so I decided to go ahead and make this post. :)

The concert was wonderful! We did get there early to try to get a good spot. We ended up being three people away from the stage, and we stood there through the first opening act - Kelsey Lu. Her music was very soft and dreamy. But each song sounded the same and I don't know if I'm into it. I'm going to look her up on Spotify. But then I started to feel a little panicky and my feet were really hurting, so we left. While we using the bathroom and getting a drink, Grimes started. I didn't care about missing her. But we went back in during her performance and she is WEIRD. Not my type of thing at all. I can't even describe what she does.

When her performance ended, it was like ten or fifteen minutes until Florence started. The lights dimmed and then the band came out. And then Florence came out. It was so cool! They started with "What the Water Gave Me" and after about thirty seconds I started crying. I've always joked that if I saw her in concert, I'd be sobbing. Well, I did! I don't remember exactly the order of songs, but she also played:
"Rabbit Heart"
"Shake It Out"
"Ship to Wreck"
"How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful"
"Queen of Peace"
"Cosmic Love" (kind of a stripped down version)
"Spectrum"
"Delilah"
"Spectrum"
"Mother"
"Dog Days Are Over"
"Various Storms & Saints"
"You've Got the Love"
"What Kind Of Man"
During "Shake It Out" I was literally sobbing, so I couldn't sing. Above is the one picture I took during the first song because I was so into the concert the whole night. At one point the lights went down and she popped up at the back of the venue. We ran over and were SO CLOSE. My sister got a couple good pictures, but I was just staring at her. :p It was amazing. I would love to see her again.
