Getting laid or played?

 

 

I shared with a few of my friends where I stand, in the process of my new project (book). Le Promesse is something that will offer most or many readers an adventure. This is a book I’m writing for my significant other and I happened to use a few real friends from my knowing, and make them characters in the book.

Writing a book takes a lot of emotion and thoughts of a very experienced writer. Anybody can write but it takes much to reveal something so great to the world. I used five of my good friends to help relay the message, because I felt that they came very close to what I was looking for in someone that was mature enough to understand.

Whom I fall in love with, I guess that’s just more than my luck. My job is to make sure that ‘prince’ reads the book after we’re together. I’m very worried about how the fans would feel about the book, or if they’d like it. But more importantly I’m contemplating on what my future husband will think about this. I want to bring out all the best and worst features of myself.

The point is to make sure that not just my husband knows who I am, but that the fans get an idea also. I find it very creative that I’m willing to put myself on paper and give you the real me. I don’t feed people bullish*t, so all of this stuff will be real. This by chance and favor, just might be better than “Love&HipHop” and “The Notebook”. Why? Good thing you ask, because there’s nothing fiction about this book. What do you guys think?

Why The Fans & Support are so important —

 

 

 

I notice that there are a lot of artist, authors and movie directors that have thousands of fans. I understand that at a point in life, some of them may become annoying or groupies. It’s not the fact that it’s their fault, when they see good talent– they freak out!! I think these supporters and fans are the keys to success, after God because they buy your material and not only that, they read and watch it.

There’s all different types of fans: The obsessed one, crazy ones, cool ones, and the straight-forward ones. I love how they can purchase your stuff not just because of the person you are, but because of the things you write about. I guess you can put it in a way of a certain perception– If you be good to the fans they’ll be good to you. Our job is to pour out our life into these books, movies, and music. You have to go hard or go home, and either way it’s about that time in life that you deliver something to the world.

Fans and supporters not only pay the bills, they’re at almost every event that’s taking place. I have to say even though we may not know them personally. They are a damn good support system when you need inspiration and good words. I love fans that not only stays true to the star, but remains true to themselves, also. Things like that gets no better than a piece of chocolate candy! You never know who supports your work and really has your back until, you stand out on that carpet and gaze around. “Thank You!” you’re yelling at the top of your lungs, telling them how much they all mean to you. I don’t think that kind of passion comes from the checks, it’s the support they give. There’s always someone there to replace those that wasn’t bold enough to support you!

Another Year Older — It’s Part of Growing Up!!

I was awakened by a phone call at 12:00 a.m. from someone that I planned on settling for. He wished me a happy birthday and said a few things to help make my day better. After, we got off the phone I hung up and tried to focus on the positive side of things. I had a loss of sleep, because some of the screaming that came from the intercom machines in my room, and in the basement.

Finally, I closed my eyes and saw something really crazy. I was getting laid in my dreams, but what made it funny was that I woke up laughing. I’ve grown-up and matured over the last 19 years, and there a lot that I’ve learned. I’m one of the most coolest people you would know. My personality is very outgoing and down to earth. I know how to laugh, joke and be serious when it’s time.

The best thing that’s ever happened to me, was God allowing me to see another year. There’s a lot going on and I’ve accomplished a lot. Especially, getting my first book published in January 2013, and doing a touring book signing. I try to keep everyone happy and getting into the enjoyment of reading my work, and some of the blog posted. I’m human just like everyone else, and I’m deciding to feel, and be like myself.

 

 

I’m young, but there’s a lot that I have to offer. I’ve been blessed with so much and I don’t regret having the talent that I do. There are so many ways to be creative and I’m doing it right now. As we grow older, we listen out for the things in our surroundings and become more aware of certain things. Life isn’t the easiest gift given to us, but we make the most of it by living like it’s our last day.

I wasn’t looking for anything on this beautiful day. I just needed life, and something to let me know that God was giving me another chance at life. There’s a lot that I want from life, and that includes a man that loves me, and a family. I’m not dumb but I know what I can handle and what I can not. I’m different from other females, because I carry myself with grace and elegance. I’m learning about myself everyday, and I’m doing something great. I have dreams and achievements, and I’m going to get the majority of them all achieved before I turn twenty-five. I’ve been working hard, so since today is my birthday — I’m relaxing and taking it easy.

The Contest and the rules!!!

The rules strictly applies to everyone that is contemplating/ joined the competition. You must play fair and don’t cheat, it’s not like you could anyway. The deadline for the contest is Nov. 27th 2012. You must enter your entries/submissions on the contest page. No one can tell you what to write about, but it has to be something interesting. There should be a sample of a short story or novella that you’re in the process of working on. I guarantee that this will be fun, because I’ve done something such as this before, and everyone had a blast.

However you choose to enter it on the ‘CONTEST’ page, is your business. It has to be visible to me so that I can see it, and the choice of format is yours. Please do NOT write in penmanship, because that’s doing too much. It has to be your own version of “LE PROMESSE” and however you want to create it. I will post a short example of mines up on the site so that you can have some insight as to what’s going on. There will only be one winner, and the first place winner gets a signed copy of my book SWORD OF LOVE: A PARISIAN LOVE (BOOK1) and a T-shirt, cd and bookmark. I’m contemplating on putting some cash in the prize/stash.

 

 

 

Below I have an example of my own LE PROMESSE (The promise). Don’t copy nor take any of the characters or anything that  has its’ content. The book is currently being worked on now, and has been copyrighted for future references.

 

EXAMPLE:

 

Chapter One

       I know not a lot of people my age tend to do the things I do. This is a big world and sometimes, we get lost in it. I found my purpose when I was awakened by the phases of life. I’m a person of love, but I have to compare myself to a butterfly. Like something so small, I go through many different stages before I become mature.

There’s this room that I’m writing from. It represents something about myself, and I hope that the world can see the same exact things that I do. Sometimes I feel like we need to be alone with ourselves, to get the full understanding of what we want out of life.

As I lie down on this queen-sized bed, I’m writing a story without paper and pen. I thought that maybe if I went away to a far away angelic place to write this, than everyone would have a better understanding of who I am, as a person. I chose to lay my body to rest, in this all white beachfront house that stands facing the water.

There’s a pure white queen-sized bed and a white and silver lamp mounted to the wall. Everything is white except for the green plant that sits vertical of the bed, in a tall white vase. There’s a green, gray and white throw rug on top of the white carpet. A navy green and black granite table is placed against the wall, across from the bed. There’s this white chair placed in front of the table with golden emblazon on its sides.

This is Kenyona R.C. Parlor, not the physical being speaking to the world; but the spiritual being. People often mistake me for the physical things they see, but that has to be corrected. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with laying down my fleshy display. There’s a purpose and a reason for everything that is performed. Why can’t we just accept people as they really are? You’re physicality is what allows you to do certain things that your spirituality, doesn’t allow. Most of the times we want to see what we can feel, instead of feeling what it is that we cannot see.

This human race is complex to the point of malfunctions, especially when it comes to trying to fathom. We confuse our thoughts with our feelings, and our feelings with our thoughts. My point is that we’re backwards and don’t know how to move forward. We make things complicated but yet we all request for the best.

There’s a promise to someone out there, for someone that can love me without going for the physical things. I know it’s a challenge to all mankind when you have to define the inner side of a person, but things will work out for the best. It’s like going on a crusade to make it to the promise land, without any marks or blemishes.

I don’t have to ask what love is, because I know what it defines. I don’t confuse lust and love with one another. There’s a sacred part of me that is promised to a prince of a far away place. I’m not fearful of who the person is, but if he’s able to take on few challenges. A man goes through things, but he should never run when a challenge calls him out.

There’s something so beautiful around me, but why would I destroy it? I’m looking beyond my what my eyes are showing me. My heart has a mind and eyes of its own; I’m following the path of justification for what’s right. I need someone that has their own and knows how to grow up when it’s time to do so. I would never disappoint myself, settling for a business talk isn’t what I’m searching for. I’d prefer to cut right to the chase and get on with my life, family, and this promise!
