My Article Writing Internship

Today, I was told by the company that I am currently writing articles for that I am a good writer and they appreciate my work.

This is the best feeling ever!

Article writing is new for me. It means doing research on a variety of different subjects and then writing a piece about it in so many words.

My comfort zone is fiction writing. Because my thoughts can just flow freely.

So, this is a challenge for me. And the fact that I am doing well, only makes me more determined to do better!

Writing On the Wall

There  was writing on the wall.

How the hell..

It wasn’t there moments ago. 

Touching it, it smeared red paint…

No.. 

It was human blood.

The copper scent filled my nostrils.

I could smell the rich scent. It belonged to a woman. 

Next thing I know I was thrown from across the room.

Waking up, I noticed the bright lights and knew I was inside a hospital.

How did I get here. 

Blood. There was a human woman’s blood on my wall.

In my place.

How???

The next thing I realized was the restraints against my arms. 

I was chained up. Like a monster. In a hospital bed. Fuck.

I didn’t need to know what was happening to know I was in deep trouble. 

A woman enters my room. 

A human. A nurse judging by her outfit. 

What the hell. I could smell her fear.

She didn’t want to do what she was being forced to do.

Hell, if I could I would break away and take her with me.

And let her know she didn’t have to fear me. Unlike what I can about whoever she was working for.

Next minute, I felt a deep intense pain as a needle went in!

Damn it!

What is happening?!

What’s in that needle?

Who was this nurse?

Two weeks later, I woke up again. 

In the same hospital room. 

Except this time, a different woman. 

She was a red head. She didn’t fear me. She enjoyed the pain she was about to inflict upon me.

Here I go again. When will it stop. I tried thrashing about but to only cause myself more pain. The readhead was laughing at me.

Mocking me in my weak state. Anger rose up deep within me. I wanted to kill her. 

A door opens and then a gun shot goes off.

What’s happening now?

The red head is down on the floor bleeding out. 

Then who shot the gun?

Ahh.. my first nurse. She is back. She is still fearful of me. Yet she’s unchaining me.

Releasing me from my captivity.

I was free. But not for long.

Angry shouts of men were rushing to my room. I was about to jump from the window. When I turned and saw the first bald man about to shoot my helper. 

I lunge out at him, choking him to death against the wall quickly. 

I take my helper into my arms and shield her  from any bullets heading our way as we fall from the window. 

We drop from five stories.

“Hurry, they are after us. They won’t stop. They want you, and they will kill me for freeing you.”

That was the first moment she ever said anything to me let alone a whole sentence. I hold her closer to me and speed off. 

Running into the night far away from the know enemy. 

Where we will end up. 

I dont’ know.

But I am going to get answers. And I am going to head back and kill all those bastards.

I was proud of my helper. 

She shot the red head. I didn’t think she would do something like that. Her whole being says I am scared.

Who is she? Why was she with those bastards? Why do they want me? Was it connected to the blood on my way? There was a message written in blood on my wall. But I can’t remember what it was…

For this writing challenge, I challenge all of you to write a mystery thriller. One that sends a chill down your readers backs. One that involves a psychopathic killer. Who are your victims? Who is the next victim on the killer’s list?

Your killer has only been warming up this moment. He/she desperately wants this next victim to suffer.

You need to make this killer chase after the victim, making him or her feel panic and fear. Also put in that the victim went through some type of horrible event and is still on the road of trying to recover from it when the killer decides to go after him or her.

Your killer is smart and cunning, but just how much longer is it until he or she gets what they want? Or will they?

Book Review: Ruining Mr. Perfect by Marie Harte

Ruining Mr. Perfect is a hilariously funny yet brilliantly well written novel. The main two characters have sparkling personalities and are smart. It starts off with the male character thinking he was going to get back at his brother by pouring ice cold water on him. But as it turns it, it was a female in his older brother’s shower. He was shocked seeing Vanessa’s beautifully naked body standing in the shower. He froze unblinking. He didn’t know what to or do. Vanessa tried grabbing the shower curtain back to cover up. She was using his older brother’s shower because her sister was still using hers and she needed to get to work. Vanessa was the woman that he kissed a long time ago. A woman he has wanted to kiss again since that day. And after seeing her glorious body like that he couldn’t help all the images rushing to his head.  Will these two be able to connect romantically with each other or will a grudge set them apart? This stunning novel by Marie Harte was highly interesting and romantically sweet. There is a good dose of sharp tongues and humor through out the plot. I highly recommend readers everywhere to read this book!

The Two Writers

She was an avid reader.

He was an extremely talented writer.

They met through a writing site.

She was his greatest fan.

He was her favorite writer.

It all happened when they started to write…

Jasmine loved reading books. It was her ultimate hobby. She also wrote a little on the side. Her dream was to become a famous writer one day. She recently joined a writer’s site. There she posted all her writings. She also read a lot of her viewer’s writings too. Until, one day she spotted a book. that was so alluring. So deep and passionate were the chapters. The characters came to life with every page she read. She continued to read, read, and read this author’s work. Jasmine commented daily back and forth with this new author. Soon they both started to talk more and more. Until they both realized they liked each other a lot. Each day was filled with conversations back and forth. They proclaimed their love for each other. But then danger lurked around the corner. Crashing their connected world as they knew it. Their hearts..were separated.

Patrick didn’t know what to feel anymore. The woman he recently married because she carried his kids within her was now dead. Along with his unborn children. His heart became heavy with pain. The woman somehow got pregnant with his kids. But how? He still never knew. He had to let go of a woman he fell in love with from a writing site so long ago, because of  his wife and the circumstances. What was the chance that his first love would take him back? Would she still care about him? Or did she move on and have kids of her own? He was more than willing to take the chance to see her again. Maybe, just maybe they might be able to re–gain their relationship and start over?

Jasmine was now a very active book reviewer, a children’s author and a teacher. She loved her jobs. They gave her great joy. It was good to know she could influence the world even in small doses. Her mind kept shifting away from work today. What was up with her? She hasn’t been able to move on after what happened. The guy she fell in love with who was her favorite author. His stunning books were now sold worldwide, made her feel happy and sad. How was he doing? What were his kids going to be like? Was he happy with her? That woman who was pregnant somehow with his kids. Impossible but there was DNA evidence to prove it. The clock struck again. Twelve o’clock once again. Turning the lights off, Jasmine heads to bed.

Patrick was on the plane. Nervous about what he might find out when he sees Jasmine. WIll he be jealous if she had a man in her life now?  Will she not want him to see her? So many questions swarmed his head. Feeling exhausted, he let sleep take him.

 

 

Come back to read part 2!

Reader Alert

Reading is my hobby and passion. I use to hate it when I didn’t know how to read well. But know as an adult I can’t ever imagine not being able to read! Every book has a plot that is waiting to be explored. Characters to go on adventures with. Scenes to visualize. Opening up a book to it’s first page is exciting. It intrigues my senses. Wondering what is this book really about? Is it half as good as the book summary? What new adventures will I go on now? What are the characters’ personalities like and will they interfere with the plot? What is the story’s theme?

Readers are critics. We don’t realize it, but we are. We are absently critiquing the book in our minds as we read on. Inside our minds we have a checklist. That checklist determines on whether or not we finish that particular book. We grade the book on everything. We may not be writers, but we definitely know what we want to happen, what we expect to happen, what should happen and how it should be written. How’s that possible?

Like I said we are critics, even though  we just don’t realize the fact. Based on how we judged the book in our hands or on our devices, we either help promote others to read that same book or we tell others what the book lacks. And whether we have good or bad reviews on what we just read, it helps the author grow and develop from our feedback. When so many people are saying the same things about an authors work, they then take that into consideration. They may redo their book, altering it to make it better. And then place it back out there. And a lot of the times the book is improved so well that you can resist in telling everyone else, “Hey, you need to read this!”.  So, when you read another book beware, your opinion weighs heavy on how well that book will do!

Book Review: Playing With Fire by Cynthia Eden

 

Playing With Fire is a sexy thriller filled with intrigue and adventure. It’s hard for readers to not fall in love with the main characters! I loved reading this entire book!  The settings were realistic and entertaining. The plot was stunning. The story was about a young girl who is experimented upon by her father. Her father was a mad scientist who eventually lost all sense of humanity. He captured paranormal beings only to torture and drug  them to use for his experiments. He wanted to develop a strong army for the military. The daughter when she was eight years old fell in love with one of the experiments. This one experimental being was caged just in just like all the others. She unlike her father wanted to rescue all of the creatures and beings and let them go. She didn’t want them to die. She was dying that one day, when she went to rescue him. But she came back to life. Because of her father putting needles into her. Injecting her with different things.  The one creature was  a Phoenix. A powerful fire creature that never dies. She loved him since she was eight and throughout the book they both keep meeting each other as their enemies close in. This novel is a fascinating read. A thriller romance with believable characters. I highly recommend readers all over to pick up this book and read i! You might even end up re-reading it again because the plot is just that luring. Cynthia Eden’s writing is incredible! She will hook you in with her words from the very beginning!

Book Review: Captured By Love written by Jody Helund

Captured By Love, is a fascinating novel. I have never read a book whose story held my interest and captured my heart the way Jody Hedlund’s story did. Her main characters are strong, bold, and vibrant. Their quirks make them funny. And their fights make them alluring. Sparks fly high between the two as their problems arise with each new event. I highly enjoyed reading this stunning piece. The characters came to life with each new chapter. The settings were beautiful and perfect for the story. Readers can easily find themselves connecting on a one-on -one level with the characters. Life’s lessons are learned as scenes continue to unfold. I loved every moment! I know others will too. I definitely recommend this novel to everyone to read!

Book Review: A Triple Knot by Emma Campion

A triple Knot is a fascinating historical romance novel that I have ever read! The main character Joan is a high spirited young woman who is angered by her grandma and a few other family relatives for beheading her father. Calling him a traitor. King Edward and his wife Philippa  keep moving Joan about trying to marry her off. At first their attempts bring shame to their cousin Joan. But later in the end they finally agree to helping her marry her cousin Thomas. 

This intriguing story will keep readers interest as they go further into the stunning plot. Readers will be kept guessing as to what will happen next. Who will Joan be married off to? Where will she be sent to next? Does her romance with one of the King’s knights work out?  Joan also goes through more troubles, first someone drowns her beloved puppy. Then someone she loves dies. And next she finds another more terrifying truth at the end.

I loved reading this piece bringing history and romance to a whole new level. I enjoyed reading about Joan and how she developed and changed as a character. All the characters were realistically believable and so true. I found all of it to delightfully entertaining. Humor too, played an important part in making this a fabulous read. There wasn’t one boring moment within the book. I definitely recommend this masterpiece of a novel to those who love history, humor, intrigue, and romance. Emma Campion wove history into a beautifully written fictional story! This is one readers won’t want to miss reading!

Book Review: No Light by Devi Mara

No Light is a stunning novel that will leave readers breathless. The story begins, with a young woman trainer who is a human, named Sara. Her job is to watch a Dem named Farran. Instantly, there is a deep understanding and attraction that grows between the two. Farran feels anger towards Sara because she is a human. A human so frail that he could easily dispose of. But, he doesn’t. Sara is taught that Dems are highly dangerous creatures and should not be handled lightly. Yet, she always finds herself in fear and apologizing constantly to Farran. He tells her continuously not to apologize to him. Yet, she continues to do so. Farran feels sorry for Sara and other emotions towards her as well. Her bruises and scars make her more fragile to him. Plus, her tiny frame and small height make her like a porcelain doll to him.

Several accidents happen in the novel that end up with Sara being seriously hurt. First, it was other Dems going after her with Farran feeling an instant protectiveness towards her. He rushes to her aid without hesitation. This causes him to unintentionally hurt her. Her skull receives a blow. Soon after wards Sara and Farran are back to his holding cell and then he tells her how stupid she is before she goes unconscious on him. He holds her in his arms feeling remorse. He watches her peaceful trance as she slowly heals. This is the first time Farran realizes just how deep Sara has gotten under his skin.

I loved reading this book from the first page until the very ending. I was hooked by the suspense from page one. And then I was completed lured in by the magic of the unspoken attraction happening towards Sara and her Dem, Farran. Devi Mara definitely knows her way to attract readers with every page. Her words coming to life, and bringing me deeper into her mysterious, adventurous, and highly intense romantic plot! The characters are so believable it is hard to believe that are only just words.

Romance, intrigue, and delightfully entertaining are words every reader can associate with this book. From one alliance to another Sara had finally found where she belongs. Farran thought he would never feel this way again. Sara brought feelings alive in Farran that were hidden so deep. They both had a past filled with bad memories and now they together are creating new ones. Sara’s brother the only person she truly had in her life is in a deep coma. But will he stay that way forever? Or will Farran play a new role in her life giving her everything she wanted plus more?

I rate this novel 4 out of 4 stars. I highly recommend readers everywhere to read this masterpiece written by Devi Mara. I look forward to reading all her other books. This novel is one that I could not put down. It held me interest all the way through. The ending was surprising. Readers should pick up the novel and read it. I know without a doubt that they won’t be disappointed when they do!
