The news

Just a quick rant. I sleep with my television on. And sometimes listening is great. Other times it just really doesn't start my day well. I swear the news just tries its hardest to depress the world. Take this morning for example. The headline was what state has the most toxic air. And my half sleeping brain says..Ohio. And when they return they say Ohio is number one for most toxic air. Because of power plants they said. Well not much any of us can do about air is there? So why make people worry about something they can't change? If I moved to uhhhh...Florida something there would be toxic. If I packed up and went someplace else there would be something wrong with that too. And then this was the icing on the cake. Woman who are taller are more likely to get cancer. Do scientist have anything better to do? I guess that one bugged me because I'm tall. And now apparently I'm more prone to cancer? *rolls eyes* Anyone can get sick. Its not one type. People get sick and its for various reasons. I don't think height has anything to do with it. I just wonder why we sit and try to start mass hysteria. I could be the healthiest person in the world and still get struck with something. I would rather live life not focused on if I'm too tall, in the wrong state breathing the wrong air, eating the wrong foods etc. People who live like that can't possibly be living. There is never going to be a right answer on why some people are given what they are given in life. And trying to figure it out will just make you crazy.

I miss Evan and Eve

Oh how I miss Evan and Eve. And Kenny. And Ari and Gray. I never thought something created in my mind could be so personal and that I would miss it. But I do. I really don't know if anything else will feel like Wingless. I am enjoying writing other things but Wingless is in my soul. That is all.

No wait.... I started a Wingless Playlist, I think I am going to make soundtracks for each volume of the book. I listened to lots of specific songs while writing and it would be cool to put them all together. Such as this one for the end of Back to Life. Its called The mess I made by Parachute.

Here I am

Well seems like its been awhile since I wrote anything. That could be because I feel like my brain is really scattered. Its not so easy anymore to just get one thing accomplished. Causes major anxiety to have a million thoughts going off in your brain at once.
The good part is I wrote almost 300 pages of the newest book. The bad part is I have slacked big time on promoting myself as a writer. But I care a lot more about writing, and when an idea strikes I can't just push it aside.
So today I am going to do some author interviews and jump back into the forums. Need to reconnect with the readers and writers.
The newest book is amazing. I love it. I really think my readers will really enjoy it as much as Wingless.
The world has been a crazy annoying place lately. Sometimes I think I should just unplug my television and internet to not feed into all the bullshit. I'm tired of hearing about Casey Anthony now. The first day or so fine, but now they stretch it into nothing to try and come up with a story. Let it rest already! There are way more important things going on around us. The world seems to have lost focus. The news only worries about things that don't matter. It really is saddening that we care more about celebrity trends and cellphone apps then real issues.
So yes I am still around. And soon enough I will have another book finished and under my belt. I'm trying to enjoy summer, which so far I have.
And to end this I would like to thank my husband for being amazing and so insightful. Sometimes when I write I toss ideas around with him. And this time he really came up with a great idea for Ink. He's great.

This is life.

So I had to blog. Everyone is blowing up Fb abotu Casey Anthony. This is something I have watched on Nancy Grace from the beginning. I will never forget the first news headlines. What kind of mother doesn't report their child missing for 30 days? That was my thinking when it first started.
But sadly it turned into a media circus. Caylee fell through the cracks. Now everyone is enraged because there was no justice. Well how much justice can one get when there is no evidence. I watched some of the trial. It was a bunch of crap spewing from every which way. No one had solid evidence. They had what ifs. They painted a spotty story, but never provided answers, concrete facts.
I guess if they were looking to make the family look really screwed up, well they did that perfectly. I don't like to talk bad about people but something is not right with any of them.
The things that bother me now are simple. Fine she is not guilty, a group of jurors decided to say she wasn't. And I'm sure they feel they did the right thing. Whatever. But somebody still did some kind of harm to that child. I say this because if it was an accident she would have been taken to the ER or 911 would have been called. And instead of constant lies for years, they would have just been mourning a child. The family knows what happened to her. And they all will have to live with that until the day they die. And if its true after death, they will be judged by a higher power.
If they loved Caylee so much, they wouldn't have sat back and lied. They only worried about themselves. The little girl counted on them to take care of her and keep her safe and they failed. And now instead of being human and having a heart, they want to sweep it under the rug and make up lies and tell tales.
So now Casey is going to walk free. She served enough time to really see no time in jail now. But that doesnt mean life is going to be some wondeful time for her now. She has been plastered all over the world. Some people just do not deserve to be parents. I believe regardless if there was proof or not, Casey should have been sentenced and found guilty. Because it was HER CHILD and she was responsible for taking care of her, and she failed! Why can't we make people own up to their stupid choices? Where are the courts for that?
