Kick The Bucket

Writing

Writing Prompt: What are the top items on your anti-bucket list — those things you never, ever want to do, places you never want to visit, books you never want to read, etc.?

Top 5 things on my anti-bucket list:

  1. Never read “Fifty Shades of Grey” again – seriously people despite all the hype surrounding the book (and the movie); but this was a really difficult book to read, not because o the subject matter, but because this book was so poorly written, I couldn’t get into it, because I keep finding errors then I started editing the book as I was reading, and I couldn’t stand Anna, I found her so damn annoying , and found myself screaming at my book asking why she was so spineless, I read for enjoyment not to raise my blood pressure, I read these books once and they chucked them in the trash… mommy porn my ass.
  2. I never want to see the movie Vacancy again. I love a good scare, but this movie fucked with me in ways I can’t even verbalize. months after I watched the move (and I didn’t watch it all) I was still thinking of it
  3. I never want to visit St. Rose Dominican hospital again. It’s a wonderful facility but honestly stepping back in that place would cause a panic attack of epic proportions. After spending 6 weeks there, 2 comas, and multiple medical emergencies, I think it’s understandable why I don’t want to enter that place.
  4. Not speaking to my mother was the pits… and I never want to do that again., once was enough, I think it lasted for over a month… the reasons why aren’t important (and they honestly weren’t important then either) but we’re bot h alike in the fact that we are both stubborn and want have out say, so we tend to butt heads often.. we just know how to deal with it better. But #3 was the reason we started speaking again. I was started to get sick and was scared and after a visit to quick care and the doctor told me that I needed to go to the ER right away I called her and told her that I needed her.
  5. There is enough crap in the world making people feel like they are worth-less and not good enough. We see it everyday from what we watch on TV, do our “friends”, we even do it to ourselves, I never want to be one of those people that makes someone else feel that way. We deal with enough stuff on a daily basis, do we really need to deal with that too?

 

Until Next Time….

The Great Divide

Writing

 

Writing Prompt: When reading for fun, do you usually choose fiction or non-fiction? Do you have an idea why you prefer one over the other?

First of all I love books, and I love reading, I think that people should read what moves them. But I think that non-fiction forces the reader to use critical thinking, while fiction allows the user to use their creativity. Reading enables the mind to think over objects of interest, which enable a person in making informed decisions, its food for the soul, for it nourishes the human intellect in probing things deeper, analyzing things, and provide guidance to people, to instances they have not yet been exposed to life.

I spent a LOT of time in school. And I spent more time than I wanted reading in college and in grad school… so back then when I wanted to relax I gravitated towards fiction…romances in particular…. there is nothing more satisfying that getting lost in a story, and being able to read it until the story was done (as is the case when I read a Harlequin Romance).  As I’ve gotten older my tastes have changed a bit, I still love a good romance story, but I’m open to a lot more genres… I always tell people that a good makes me want to either curse out the author or give them a hug (Okay that’s not true… I read 50 Shades of Grey, and I REALLY wanted to smack E.L. James because the story was so poorly edited and her character Anastasia  was so cringe worthy I used wanted to scream, “are you seriously that damn stupid!” and that story was really not all that great). Lately I’ve been reading a lot of books about American History and Biographies on Monarchs of Europe..who knows what I’ll be reading in the net few weeks…. there are so many books, and so little time.
