A Restless Pursuit

**This writer does not tolerate people stealing other people’s stories and I realize that has been a huge problem lately.  I already post most things for free for people to enjoy and if someone is going to suck the fun out of that, I may have to start writing paid stories and I don’t want to do that all the time.  
Please respect other people’s hard work just as they respect yours. It is more rewarding to come up with your own ideas anyway instead of claiming other people’s stories that aren’t your own.
Author’s Note
Revised/Updated: April 4, 2014
While I do appreciate so much that the majority of people who read my site love my works, I know at the same time, I’m not going to please everybody.  Having said that, I honestly don’t care if you don’t like what I write!  Life’s too short to discourage people.  Go find something better to do with your time if you don’t like this page.  Much Love, xoxo.
 
Interview Q & A
Describe your desk
Normally, I write in the comfort of my own bed with the laptop on my lap. I also write at the kitchen table.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in a small town where everyone knew everyone. This influenced me by creating interesting villains for my stories.
When did you first start writing?
I first started writing in secrecy years ago. I was actually a blogger before a writer. Instead of ranting about my days in straight blog form, I decided to turn my situations into non-fiction and fiction short stories.
What’s the story behind your latest book?
Most of my writings as I have mentioned in my bio will be based off of my long distance lover who is 8+ hours away. So far, I have written sad and depressing situations about us that I decided to create a happy situation for us in this latest series, which would in turn make this fictional based off of a true story. I like to write in any type of mood and haven’t practiced writing in happy moods yet. This will be the first semi-happy series I’ve written.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
When people read my blog as blog posts, they suggested I could turn my blog rants into adventurous short stories and from there, my indie career took off.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Writing is very therapeutic for me. I do not need a therapist. When I write my stories, I give full details and full thoughts which allows me to release my inner thoughts. The whole reason I started writing in the first place was for therapeutic reasons and then it became something more than that to me.
What do your fans mean to you?
I like to have conversations about anything with my readers and become friends with them. My readers are more than just readers, but people who have become friends to me as well. My biggest fan is the love of my life [or was before we stopped talking. I lost a dear reader.]
What are you working on next?
I’m currently still working on a happy series for me and my lost universe trying to get it published soon.
Who are your favorite authors?
J.K. Rowling
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Writing and reading other people’s stories help me pass the time alone.
When you’re not writing, how do you spend your time?
I’m reading other people’s stories and helping them become discovered.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I Google, Kindle, WordPress, WattPad, and other writing communities. I also look for authors who write the same genre as me.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes, it was about another male interest which didn’t work out. Since it was my first time writing a real story, I didn’t think much for it and used it as therapeutic release.
What is your writing process?
Normally, something interesting has to happen in real life and I base my stories off of events that actually happened in my real life.
How do you approach cover design?
I either draw or make the covers myself with Adobe PhotoShop. I try to make the cover as best as I can relate to the stories. Sometimes I’ll use my own photographs or photographs of the people I am talking about. Most of my characters will be people I personally know who have given me permission to write about them. I don’t use their real names, though.
My Collaboration Partner
                This past year, I started collaborating with a writing partner who happens to also be the love of my life.  We connected so with each other through my stories – I have never had this kind of bond with someone before it was exciting!  He is the one who helped me to become the better writer that I am because when I write about us, I always make sure to write as best as I can talking about him.  Unfortunately, because we are a little more than eight hours away from each other, we had a miscommunication and argument and cannot properly see each other in-person to resolve this.  I do not know how to get him to speak to me again.  Without him, I cannot finish our story.

                I have started to write as many confessions as I can, until reality becomes better than my fantasies.  Most of my stories will be based around us and he has given me permission to write about him before we had a falling out.  I don’t like saying bad things about him because he really is a nice guy, but he is making me angry not talking it out with me.

I hope one day we will speak again and not have these many obstacles between us.

Until then, I write alone.

Xoxo,

Yours truly.

For new readers to my most epic tale I have ever told, I welcome you. Current readers who have seen us since the beginning unfold, I am happy you are still here to want to know where our journey is headed.

I told him people from all over the world were reading my page just for our story. He said was happy for me. He said he thought that was so wonderful of you guys to love our story, when we were still talking before our argument yesterday. He’s eight+ hours away and we can’t properly see each other to talk things out in person and some miscommunication happened. I don’t know to get my collaboration partner to be back in my life. :’(

**Anyone who tweets “#xinsmissingstar” will get a personal/promo dedication in my stories.  Please let him know how important it is that I need him to finish writing our story!

What to Expect from this site

  • **Sometimes I either post my stories excessively or not at all. If you might get annoyed with seeing my name pop up somewhere, feel free to block my site. Don’t bother trolling me because you won’t get me to stop posting however the way I post.  There’s no such thing as posting too much if I have readers who enjoy my stories.
  • If you vote one out of five stars on my postings, you better show an excerpt that you write better than me. If you vote that simply because this isn’t your kind of reading, don’t bother getting click happy! Move on and find something you would like to read.  You most likely also voted one out of five stars because you saw a remnant of your personality in there not painted in a good light.  You know you can do something about that if this applies to you: change yourself to become a better person instead of irrationally voting on stories which tell the cold hard truths of the world.  When I talk about the bad people of this world, it’s not directed at a specific person seeing as it can be multiple people.  If the shoe fits, wear it!  Don’t go trashing my site just because I see the bad people for what they truly are.
  • Side note:  Please do not go out of your way to write a negative review about my site. Your negativity will go unheard by me at least. This site was originally meant to just be a public diary vent space and I got creative, decided to turn my life into fiction and nonfiction stories.
  • *Warning [contains mature material]: If you’re not into romance, etc. type stories, this is site isn’t for you.  Most of my stories are based off of the interesting men that I meet and the situations I’m in.  I don’t write about every man I meet, though.

Background

I first created this site on June 09, 2013. I cannot believe how many views and followers I have received in less than a year.  I thought I had my site longer than that, but I guess it really hasn’t been even a year yet.  I enjoy meeting my readers who like my stories, I enjoy looking at the colorful designs at your blogs, and I hope to create more tales for you to read.

If there is anything in particular a reader/writer would like me to write about, please do let me know. I’m looking to write about a new topic other than romance and/or nonfiction.  There’s always going to be people at every forum who want to aggravate someone, but I won’t let them ruin my time here.  I’ve met some great new Word Press friends. I knew I was going to like this site better than this other writing community that shut down I came from.

  • End note: When I give people the freedom of speech on my Web site, that means you can freely critique my work.  You do not, however, have the freedom to personally insult me.
