Beta Readers

Hey guys! AJ is submitting an entry to a contest which doesn’t really feature me or a character you know yet. But you will soon. But it’s a short 1000 words that AJ needs beta readers. I need email addresses if you want to read it so you actually have to email me this time….

Confused Yet?

I am AJ’s favorite character right now. It was Matalina aka Mat aka Cari aka Il Cane. She took on many incarnations over the years including little miss Aria and Ayden at First Age. But I slowly took over and now I’m predominately in AJ’s head. Which means that there are tons of little me’s…

I’m Twelve Or English is Stupid!

Polish? Now polish I can think of so many naughty things to say about polishing. But I’ll behave. If only you could read my mind. Sage would be blushing furiously right now if he could read. But is it polish or Polish – as in from Poland? Don’t you just love the English language? Read…

Stereotypes

Today’s word prompt: natty Who else had to look up this word? neatly or trimly smart in dress or appearance; spruce: Even the urban dictionary definitions are unappealing. The only ‘natty’ person I know is Dorian. Always prim and proper. His suit is always pressed and starched, there is never a hair out of place….

Bigger Than We Thought – Breakfast with Dad

I missed Sage, but I had things to do. But when I got out of the shower I sent Sage a text. Me 646-555-4512 Tue, 06/26/2015 The shower was lonely without you. 5:37 AM I was outside Kai’s apartment door when I received Sage’s reply. Mysterious blue eyed boy 646-555-2915 Tue, 06/26/2015 You are making…

I hate the Venatori?

Have I told you all this yet? I hate the Venatori? I have… really? No that can’t be right. I don’t ramble on about my shitty life. That doesn’t sound like me. Don’t get me wrong, I love my friends and family. I don’t hate the individuals, they are a product of their upbringing. Which…

Quirks

A distant thunder sounds from a rolling storm and Sage runs outside to sit on the porch, it’s cute to watch. He likes the thunder storms and if it rains all the better. It’s one of his quirks. Everyone has their quirks. And I really can’t wait for you to meet everyone. Hell I can’t…

I am Fiction!

I guess I’m a glorified imaginary friend. I sit in AJ’s head and talk and talk and talk. And AJ writes some of it down, and others stay up there collecting cobwebs. I am a fictional character. I don’t hide this fact. Though I think sometimes my new followers don’t know that. I know I…

Brazen, Loud, Bold… who me?

Today’s word prompt was like ugh, another boring word I couldn’t really do much with until I looked it up. There are four definitions of brassy according to dictionary.com – and three if you look into the British dictionary. #3 at the top of the page is part of my title – Brazen, loud, bold….

Bigger Than We Thought – Future Talk

I made pancakes. I had intended to make them for Drake in the morning. I had more than enough to make a few for Sage before he had to get to work. I got lost in the food preparation and my own thoughts. Thoughts of Sage and life and the fate of humanity if we…

Oops….

Ha! I forgot to post earlier today. So this is what you get. Portion size matters. I won’t preach! Eat what you like. Every small change helps.

The Wicked Truth

Those of you who’ve read along with most of my stuff knows that Sage is a hacker. A white hat hacker on the books. I think it might be mentioned once or twice at most that Sage has a brother he was separated from. AJ had this elaborate plan for me to trace his brother’s…

Nerd Fitness

Who doesn’t like a buff guy? Well maybe another guy, but then that guy is usually jealous too. I wish I were like him. I want to look like that. Ya know what dude? You could, just takes work. Don’t think you can do it? You just aren’t ready yet. It’s not easy. It takes…

Bigger Than We Thought – Modus Interruptus

Sleep came. So did the dreams. The dreams always came, but they were different. Less vivid. The red glowing eyes weren’t quite so red. More a soft glow just barely making out a color. The pain imagined from the blows was still unimaginable. But when the face came into view and it was time to…

Remembrance

Detonating fireworks is one way to celebrate. Here is how we do funerals. Southern Hospitality It had been a while since I’d been down south with Jace. Mia was home with the kids. All the kids. Faelen and Drake were staying with Mia and helping to take care of Naya. Matt was stuck in the…

Happiness

With you in my life I radiate happiness Teach me love and joy This is what you get today.

Infused oils

One thing I don’t have a lot of space for in my tiny tiny apartment is to make flavored oils for cooking. Infused oils are awesome. Garlic, rosemary, thyme, and so many other herbs and spices. If you use a great oil you are made! But you can do a lot with oils infusing them…

Writing Contest

AJ isn’t giving herself a reprieve.  The Write Practice is doing a summer contest not during NaNo time this year… yay!  So AJ is going to enter. You see a otherworldly creature on the way to work. No one else can see it. What do you do? This is the prompt AJ’s gonna do. Wish…

Bigger Than We Thought – Unexpected Guest

I was going to walk home, but I figured I’d forget to call Sage when I did. I could pick up Drake and we could spend the night tossing and turning, but then I’d deprive my father of his grandson. I still took the train home, and I was walking up the stairs as I…

I Will Survive

I forget why I mentioned this song to a friend – yes I know I have friends!! Amazing right? But I did and pulling from AJ’s memory of the movie it was one of her favorite scenes. Keanu Reeves and the gang doing the Electric Slide to I Will Survive. It was one of the…
