Why is it so, that when I find the reasons, the wind comes and takes them from my hands, as if I didn’t deserve to know the why and who of the things that happen?
They say all I need is to react and act, and not care too much as to where life takes me, but I care, and I can’t seem to help concerning about the time it will finally catch up with my soul and I stop breathing…

“… And then you come and love me with your words, and hug me with your lips, and calm me with your hands. And I become this senseless mount of clay. I become and I transform, because your words reclaim me.”
Annalise Louise Reign
Things that make me wonder…
I’m trying to get better… I might be able to make it work…
As I mentioned a couple of days ago, I am going to take part of this year’s NaNoWriMo. For those of you who don’t really know what NaNoWriMo is, you can click here and you’ll be directed to a wiki entry that can explain it way better than I can. Ready? Did you read it? Ok, back to where we were, NaNoWriMo starts tomorrow, and it’s going to be a really demanding task, because:
- My job is really demanding, and I really don’t have a lot of free time.
- I am not going through the best moment in my life.
- My novel is going to be in Spanish and I’ve gone back and forth with the title and plot.
- This month it’s my birthday.
- In a couple of weeks there’s going to be a concert I really really want to go to.
- There are 2 parties I am already invited to.
But I am really looking forward to doing this. It’s been so long since the last time I took the time to write fiction, but I am really excited about having the chance of doing it right now.
If you’re going to take part of this year’s NaNoWriMo, feel free to add me as a friend.
This is some Info on the novel I am writing, feel free to answer it on your blog or the comments:
- What’s the title?
While the lights come back (Mientras vuelven las luces)
- What language are you writing on?
Spanish, maybe next year I will try to do it in English, but this one is in Spanish
- Who is your main character?
Her name is Annalise
- Is it based on something you’ve experienced?
The idea started that way, but it’s not really like that
- Is any of the characters based on people you know?
I guess they are
- What’s your writing plan?
I am actually not sure at all…
I know I’ve been away for a very very very long time, I know that even though I tend to spend some time way for long periods, I never leave for as long as I did this time.
But I am going to be honest with you guys, my life has not really been at its peak, hence the title.
I am going through some very difficult things, and even though I am not in terrible shape or anything, I still need to think about stuff and organize my thought. Don’t expect a lot from me in the following months, cause, quite honestly, it’s not really going to happen. But if you’re a good observer, you will notice things, and hopefully tie things together.
Quick update? ok…
Most of you know that I am an english teacher (and if you don’t, Why haven’t you read my About page?), The thing is that about 3 months ago, I was offered a good position at my old school, and I decided to take it. Can you guess the place?
So, yes, as I mentioned, I am not in my best place right now. So, listening to music in my car, has been a bit of a pickle. Thank God for mindless music that keeps me from thinking. Trust me on this one: If you ever need music that is not going to make you delve in your sadness, listen to David Guetta, The ting tings, The Offspring, and Gorillaz…. Until Blu Cantrell comes along, and you notice it was useless, because even though hey songs are mindless, I swear I can relate…
Almost everyone who knows me, knows that I am a feminist, not everyone who knows me, is aware of the fact that I am also very interested in sexuality. So, about 2 months ago, I watched an online talk by Gail Dines, about pornography and feminism, and I was hooked. I found out Gail Dines wrote about called Pornland: How Porn has hijacked our sexuality, and it has been my night reading every day. It can get a little intense, but it’s pretty interesting.
I know I have other news, but still, I need some time to figure things out… I’ll be back soon… Hopefully…
Also, NaNoWriMo starts this week!!!!!!
