Heartstrings: Future Published Story: Hero Needs Name, Help?!

“Heartstrings”  will be my first published Contemporary romance. If I ever finish it! My sweet, talented man in this book has no name!

(So far on my Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/SkysWriting the names, Ty(Tyler), Evan and Liam are at a tie!)

What will be the name of the man who has chocolate eyes, short black hair which is buzzed at the sides, fair skin, and is lead singer in a band with the voice of silky goodness? Oh, and the most important thing, is completely enamoured by broken girl Ava, who refuses to fall back into the clutches of love. He will do anything to prove his love is worth a shot, but Ava is full of excuses, but an attachment to this genuine man she can’t deny. (Working on actual synopsis when I actually get the story completed–or mostly completed! This story means a lot to me for many reasons, and I want it to be as near perfect as I can manage)

Here are the names I have so far for this hotty:
Cameron
Evan
Ty (Tyler)
Austin
Luca
Darren
Justin
Calvin
Liam
Dean
Spencer
Bailey

And here’s a basic idea of how “Nameless” looks in my head.

Male Name Ideas! List your favorites! =D

HALP! Annyyonnnee lol. I need help with guy names for a story I am working on. I was thinking Daegan, Alec, Vaughn, uhh, stumped. The male antonganist is slightly detached and ambiguous, but courageous. Feel free to spew off some ideas in the comment section, desperate need of awesome names. Thanks! ❤

Book Blogs are fun!

I’ve made a new blog here, and it’s such a wonderful creative outlet for me, I enjoy discussing different views on many genres of books, and just have tons of fun with it.  I am slowly transferring a lot of the book reviews I’ve written  to WordPress to share with the blogging world. This newest addiction began after a few winning entries on Goodreads.com for advanced copy books, soon before I knew it, I had more authors ask if I would exchange a review for a book. As a book collector to begin with, this was just an awesome amazing thing for me, totally unleashed the nerdy-kid outta me. Having a love for writing and expressing, this has been a perfect hobby. I am hoping to expand to be able to meet more new authors and spread the word of their great talent.  

My friend and I have started a blog together as well. Her and I have obsessed over books for a while now, and find ourselves quite caught up in these amazing fictional worlds from a variety of our favorite authors build, and we often find our conversations hilarious, soooo, we decided to open up to the world and get more people to join in and chat with us! We will be beginning a Google Hangout with author/book discussions, skits, give aways, and more! If you are interested in becoming a Booknatic, you can find us here at these links =D

And here’s a link to my review blog:

You will notice that I read every genre there is, so hopefully you can find a review that relates to you! If there is a book you want to read, but want a review for it, give me the name and I’ll hunt it down! Or if you are an author looking for a review, I would gladly and honorably take the challenge!

Operation Aspiration

I know I have been slacking on this blog the last month, but so much has come up. Lost a loved one, someone very important to me, and the family, my beautiful grandmother. I still can’t sum up in words how I feel about her not being on this earth anymore. And then, there is the everyday stress of life and work. I lost my motivation to write for a while. Although, I have been tempted many times to pick it back up, but when I sit there in front of the screen, or in front of that paper, my emotions spill out right in front of me, unable to gather my thoughts and separate them as I try to work on my book. Instead, I end up with a journal like entry, and just delete the entire thing. Well, someone broke me from my gloomy trance the other day. I mean, I must have been so far gone, so out of tune, keeping to myself, if a simple reminder, a text from a friend, “You have friends you know? =)” opens my eyes to just how distant I was being.

I have always kept my feelings and emotions to myself. I hate drama, and I am always so worried to dump my life on to people I care about. I guess I never stopped to ask myself, “Do I have friends that care enough, that wouldn’t mind if I spill what’s been hurting me?” I have always been the listening, I am just not used to being the talker. It’s nice to have a friend, that slaps you around a bit, brings your mind back to earth and tells you, “We love you.”

More and more people have been approaching me, offering a shoulder, offering both listening ears, offering some time to take my mind off everything. And I am finding my stress to drift slowly away. With all the free room in the back of my mind, I have found myself drifting off to happier thoughts, old memories, beautiful memories, fun memories. I’ve thought about all the people that ever told me how much they love me, how beautiful I am, how charming I can be when I am not tripping on everything on the ground when I am always looking up. I start thinking about some of the great people I’ve spent time with, that looks at life in a certain way, who’ve taught me and inspired me to laugh at the small things, and take the big things with small, easy steps. There have been only a few people who I feel have made me the person I am today, and I need to remember, always, that I need to remain the person I’ve become, and not recline, I need to make them proud. They have put so much love and care into me, I would hate to make all that precious time spent with them, a waste.

One thought leads me to another, and here I am, back and inspired to keep doing better. Take all my pain, all my most loved memories, all my happiness, and put it all together, and complete a masterpiece and accomplish a long-dreamed goal. I won’t stop till it is finished. Book one will be completed, and I pray to God, there will be more influences to inspire me to writing more and more.

And on another note, I must get my hands on more canvas! I have run out and my mind has been going wild ever since the switch was turned back on! I’ve been sketching non-stop, I need to plaster all these thoughts with paint on canvas. I hope to be back here, continuing to post, whether people read this or not, it feels so good to get off my chest. To those who do read, I adore you, you are my inspiration.

Writing new book, brainstorming!

I was going through my folders of unfinished stories I’ve written over the years -and because I made this blog to motivate myself into completing something- I’ve chosen one. Although, I was undecided for a good moment, because I also found a thriller I was having fun with. Anyhow, I’ve decided to go ahead and finish this “romance” I started last year. My issue being, I have always despised stories that portray the female as an incompetent, damsel in distress, man-relying ditz. I am always pro strong and independent female stories, who could take on the world herself if she wanted to. Buuutt, all at the same time, what girl doesn’t melt like butter at a good, heart pinching, dream romance? This one will be taking me a while to get into order, while I work on the perfect story-line to spell out both of my desires. And you all will be the first to find out if I succeed at this or not! I might even do some sort of online contest to pick someone to do the art cover if I *so wisfully* get it published. And even if I don’t, I would still love to have copies to share with my friends and families. Now, back to pen and paper, keys and screen to get this started, and finally, FINISHED!
