RToD 25JAN2012 – Life Starts When? (Or, Pro-Lifer’s Petitions)

January 25, 2012

Random Thought of the Day – Life Starts When? (Or, Pro-Lifer’s Petitions)

Those of you who’ve known my blog for any length of time know that I’m not afraid of discussing politics. There’s been one time that I wrote a political piece that I censored it myself simply because the topic with grossly hot-button at the time. (Gun control when the Senator got shot in the head) Normally, though, I’m fine with accepting discussion about politics because I believe that more people should do so.

From the title of this, I’m certain that this is going to cause some serious confusion for those who see it, and I honestly have a feeling that people are going to read a little bit and not bother to read the whole bleeding thing before writing to me one way or another.

I got an e-mail today from the website townhall.com. This is a very conservative site, and I believe I got on their mailing list when I wrote their site before. Anyways, the e-mail was to get me to sign a petition demanding that congress pass a law that states that life starts “At Conception.” The idea is to bypass the Supreme Court’s Rowe vs. Wade ruling by taking advantage of the court’s own statement that they cannot and will not determine when life begins, and creating a set point in time that a fertilized egg is alive. Doing so would bypass RvW and outright make abortions legal. Yay for the “pro-lifers,” right? (more…)

The Dream-Stalkers – Of Dreams and Nightmares

October 11, 2011

Writing recently has been… Interesting…

I’m not sure what it’s been recently, but I just haven’t been able to really write anything that I’m happy with.  I’ll sit down and write for a while and then decide it’s crap and scrap it.  It’s begun taking a conscious effort to NOT just delete an hour or two’s writing because something just felt off with it.  That includes this piece, Dream Stalkers part 5.  I started writing this one three times before I was finally happy with what I started with.  Either the wording was bad or I felt the flow was off or something.  The first one I did, I didn’t even re-read it.  I just said, “It’s crap,” and closed the window, no saves.

The other day was different.  The words just fell into place and I was happy with it from word one on.  I’m not sure what was different about it, but I’m glad it finally worked out!

So, without further ado, the writing that I’m sure some of you have been waiting for, The Dream-Stalkers – Of Dreams and Nightmares!

“Mother, I don’t think you’d ever be that cruel.” Tatiana’s voice was rushed as she worked to get a room ready for herself, the Queen Mother Lasha, and the human-formed werewolf that the queen considered to be her daughter, Elisa. “It doesn’t make sense, not with how hard you work to keep the peace between humans, vampires, and werewolves.”

Elisa, dressed in loose-fitting slacks and a flowing blouse, chimed in as well. “She’s right, mom. You’re nothing but the utmost in niceness, why would you claim to have such a past?” (more…)

The Dream-Stalkers: Vampiress’s Summons

August 9, 2011

Well, looky here!  I done did me some writing, yup.

It’s been a while since I’ve completed a writing piece.  I’m sure that more were hoping for a No Way Back chapter, but this is what wound up coming out: The Dream-Stalker: Vampiress’s Summons!  This would be basically piece 4 in The Dream-Stalkers and it’s not bad, if you ask me.  If flow goes right, there’ll be one more and that’s the end of the sequence.  I’m surprised it worked this well all considering the source of the story: one hell of a painful nightmare.

So, without further ado, The Dream-Stalkers: Vampiress’s Summons!  (After the jump…) (more…)

Heavy Wulf 27JUL2011 – I’m Givin’er All She’s Got!

July 27, 2011

I remember hearing that as one of the most famous quotes from Star Trek.  I don’t mean the new whiney-boy Kirk and Emo-Spock version with naked, green-skinned aliens.  I mean the old original series.  Kirk would call down to Engineering because, to quote another awesome sci-fi movie, “Must go faster…  Must go faster!  Go, Go, Go, GO!”  In reply Scotty would yell back that there really wasn’t anything left for the ship to give back.  Well, I’ll be damned if I didn’t find that extra gear, that nitrous boost, that untapped dilithium today.

Yesterday’s time made me so very excited.  After all, trimming down a full four minutes from when I started really is something to feel accomplished about.  17:48.64 was the time posted.  That’s an average of about 5:56 a lap.  Not shabby.  I can even give my fastest time yesterday as 5:51.  I was so excited about it that I was dripping with perspiration.  Maybe that was the actual walk, I’m still not sure.

Heavy Wulf 26JUL2011 – All Right!

July 26, 2011

Even during a heat spell I need to keep up with my walking.

Maybe I should just make that “Get Back to my Walking.”  I have to admit that I did, for a time, stop doing my regular walking.  I don’t have an excuse or a real reason why, I just stopped doing it so much.  I got down to about once every two weeks!  That’s not very good! 

I’ve decided that the only way I’m ever going to actually beat this is to force myself past it.  If I can force myself to wait for hours in one area on World of Warcraft (and yes I’ve done that waiting for Loque’nahak and STILL haven’t seen him living once!), then I can force myself to get up and spend roughly twenty minutes at least every other day walking!  (more…)

Emotionally Strong? Scary!

April 8, 2011

I’ve come to the understanding that I’m emotionally strong.  I doubt that’s the right terminology for it, but that’s what I’m gonna run with.  I throw myself behind my opinions, convictions, and personal preferences very heavily.  When I’m upset, I don’t always hide it well.  When I’m angry, I apparently become red-furred and go off.  Alright, so I knew about the last part, but still.  What I didn’t realize is that I apparently become a bit scary.  That’s not what I want in any way, shape, or form, so I think that’s something I need to work on.  Maybe find a way to focus it into my writing and get that kick-started again!

Emotions run strong in my family, and that’s not untrue of myself.  I don’t often realize when I’m letting my emotional state get the best of me, and sometimes I look far more emotional than I’m actually feeling.  When I DO realize it, I’m usually quick to clamp down on it because I hate seeming like some out-of-control lunatic, and I know that sometimes my rants give that impression.

What’s the point of this?  Simple.  I just want to apologize to those who I’ve managed to startled, confuse, or scare with my sometimes illogical outbursts.  It’s something that I am aware of and I am working to fix.
