Responding to Reviews

They always say it’s a bad thing to respond to reviews, but I’m really liking to see authors and writers go out of their way to have conversations with their readers.  I don’t like being ignored you know, especially when I have something to say — of course that’s meaningful.  Maybe if readers come across someone’s book they can subscribe to the blog to have conversations at the blog instead of review comments.  Would it look tacky to have a nice conversation with someone who read a whole book in the review comments?

It’s better than venom I think!  I feel like if people did respond to reviews in an articulate manner it would be okay to respond just to be like thank you for enjoying my book what would they like to see in the next book?  They say to not even respond thanking them for reading the book.  What if you want to know what they like to see in the next book?

A Writer’s Worst Nightmare

Who does this Sam Taylor Mullens writer thinks she is?  She clearly copied someone else’s original work and claimed it as her own.  Then she claims the writer gave her “permission” to use her work when that is also a lie and claims on a different name how the author is so-called “jealous” she wrote it better.  This is why I didn’t want to be a full time time writer because I know people like “Sam Taylor Mullens” are out there.  The full story is at Rachel Ann Nunes blogspot (the work Sam Taylor stole): http://rachelannnunes.blogspot.com.au/2014/08/standing-against-plagarism.html?m=1

Sam Taylor is basically admitting it was Rachel Ann’s work when she claims Rachel gave her “permission” [when she really had no permission.]  Then she lies and attacks her saying she got it from some reading group.  Is this Sam Taylor on some meds?  Do they really think those copy right laws in front of a book are there to look pretty and nothing will happen if they copy someone?  What goes on in these people’s minds who think they can take a paragraph then change up some things to call it their own?  This isn’t writing a high school essay anymore.  This is the real world.

Walls

For far too long I’ve put up walls, not letting stuff bother me.  When I finally say screw what people think when I let things bother me, people feel the need to mock me saying, “Oh, look it Poor Jessica poor this poor that.”  You’re not even worth my time.  I went on the Amazon forums again because I saw an interesting topic about getting sued for writing so I commented on it because I’m always worried about some loser trying to sue me for writing the truth.  It is so ridiculous how people can sue you for writing the TRUTH exposing them.  I hadn’t posted at the Amazon forums in a long time and as soon as some people saw my name there, I knew a snarky poster was going to bring up past drama.  Luckily it was only one, but I shot back at her and she hasn’t had something to say back yet.

She claims she’s sick of the drama but every chance she gets she always follows me around the forums and say some smart alec comment.  So I told her I think she lives off this drama that’s why she brings it up when I wasn’t even talking about it.

I’m not going to let her bother me.  She’s the type of person to ditch you in your worst times and think she can waltz back in your life when things are going great.  I get what they try to do saying I need to focus on more meaningful stuff than letting people get me down, but the way they go about it is just rude and condescending.  She unfollowed me because I kept writing about bullies and bad people.

I did have some decent conversations with some new posters on there after I haven’t been on there for a while, though.  Then she had to come in and say something dumb.  She’s just a bored lady who has nothing to do with her life but write all day so I’m not going to let her bother me like she wants.

To Make or Not to Make

I’ve been debating on whether or not to make a forum.  I don’t have the tools to drive traffic to it.  I’ve tried starting a forum before but it never took off.  I have this blog already (only these posts are about my projects and my life and other people can’t make threads), but I’d like a place to discuss things about writing and there seems to be completely unmoderated forums everywhere else.  How useful would a complete ethically reading and writing moderated forum be of all genres?  I’ve tried researching forums but haven’t found a writing forum that talks about everything where moderators are fair with what gets posted and deleted.  Most writing forums I’ve found are ran by generated robots or unethical administrators. One of my biggest dreams one day is to form an active writing forum where we can find lots of stuff about writing easily.  It’s just scattered all over the world wide web currently.

Unimportant Me

Francesca:

I always say what I want as well. There will be people who will agree and won’t agree on every subject so I don’t try to please those who don’t agree with what I do or say.

Originally posted on HarsH ReaLiTy:

I revel in the fact that I am unimportant because if I “mattered” then I would have to watch what I say. I will never run for political office, will never be Star Fleet Commander, and will never appear on TV to defend my views. I have always found it amusing how “random people” get thrust into the limelight against their will and often times it is due to the “one time” they dare to express their true opinions. Isn’t it amusing, for instance, how the Freshly Pressed staff normally picks very soft bloggers to feature and in turn forces them into the arena? They rarely pick controversial blogs that I have noticed and I wonder if that is on purpose.

Unimportant me lives an unimportant life and that life gives me the freedom to say what I wish. There will be no blow back from my work, family…

Fun Fact #7: I hate borrowing $ from people.

Maybe it’s because I’m lucky I don’t have any children to provide for right now, but I hate borrowing money from people.  If you’re on your own though, you have no excuse to borrow money from other people if you have no children.  And then there are people who will take all the money they can get and not pay people back.  If you don’t have the money to buy what you want/need, I’m afraid you’ll have to with do for the time.  That’s what I did.  When I couldn’t pay rent on time because work got called off for two weeks, I bounced my account, didn’t ask for other people to pay my rent.  I lived off of Ramen and cereal I bought from before and stocked so I didn’t starve.  I don’t know how people can feel good about themselves nonchalantly borrowing money from people knowing it would take a while to be paid back.  A family friend offered me $100.  I really didn’t want to take it, but it helped a lot at the time.  As soon as I get my tax refunds I am paying the person back.  Everyone that knows me knows my biggest pet peeve is not wanting to borrow money and if I do I pay them back as soon as possible.

My Journey to You Chapter 7: Good Times, Good Times

You know you’ve got a great job when nearly everything you do reminds you of sexual innuendos, hahahahahaha.

I made a good friend at my new job who takes me to work.  She’s hilarious.  I had her cracking up all night when I was saying innuendos.

She says to me, “You need to get laid.  That’s why you’re referencing it all the time and you don’t even notice.”

Then another co-worker joked I watch porn because I can’t get any.  I don’t even watch porn, psht.  Honest.

[Oh, I'm not even gonna try to be discreet about that, yes I do need to get laid. Argh, for having standards.  Sometimes I wish I could just hook up with someone and not care because getting feelings for someone is what ends up hurting a person in the end when things don't work out.  I'm still going to try and have a good outlook on a rather hopeless situation because I love floating on cloud 9, I do.  I just wish we could talk more than we do right now!  It's always a hit or miss.]

For example, I was cleaning and inspecting parts in a way where she said I looked like I was jacking someone off.  I didn’t even really think about how it looked until she said something and the way things were said even though it’s proper instructions to do things are the best innuendos.

An older African gentleman at work of course was shocked to find out how old I’m turning on Sunday.  He’s like, “No way.  You’re not going to be that old.  You look really young.”

“Yep, I have no one in our hometown for me.  It’s just me, myself, and I.  No children except for my dog.  One day I’ll become a mom, hopefully with the right person.  For now, I’m just paying off all my bills.”

He said to me, “My wife and I have two boys and I can tell you’d be a really good mom someday when you have children.”

That comment just made me gush.  Everyone was complimenting me today.  My bosses just told me I was the best freaking quality inspector for the production line in history since they started that line out of everyone that has worked it.  I like this work environment.  It’s a pleasant place where people have a sense of humor and can joke around, not be too serious all the time.

If I’m a top worker, I know I’d be a damn good mom to my future kids if I ever get to have any, and a damn good girlfriend/wife.  Sigh…

I know I’d be good with teaching future kids respect, morals, and not letting people treat them like they’re worth nothing.

Right now, I’m okay with not having any children.  I’m struggling to live myself and I don’t want to bring any children to live in my sucky situation right now.  When I have children, I want to be properly prepared.  So for now, I’m just having fun with myself and getting all my bills paid to where I only have the regular daily bills to worry about and not extra things like student loans, etc.

Death will take anyone, it doesn’t care who a person is.

Death doesn’t care if you’re a pregnant wife and a pastor, nor does it care that you’re a teenage girl.

Death doesn’t care if you’re a tiny baby about to be born.  It can strike at any hour: when you least expect it.

The weather has been so horrible this year:  The coldest winter in history.

There have been so many deaths lately in the news (mostly bus related) that I don’t know if I feel right writing about a death in my story because I don’t know.  It is a work of fiction, but has been mostly realistic, that’s why I’m debating on whether or not to turn it into science fiction and maybe I can bring a character I have die back to life in some outer worldly way…I’m trying to write about as many topics as I can and one topic I haven’t touched upon yet has been death.  I just like to see what my imagination can come up with.

This is kind of like Stranger than Fiction’s debate on whether or not she should make one of her characters live.

Two of my top favorite writer movies are Stranger than Fiction and Orange County.

My Journey to You Chapter 6: A Friendly Reminder to Me

Charley was the last man I talked to in my hometown before I gave up on my state and started to look elsewhere.  He wasn’t like any of the other men I talked to before him.  The whole reason why I liked him in the first place was because at such a young age 21-years-old, he was already working 12-hour shifts everyday, going to college on top of that.  He honestly makes me wonder what the hell I did at 21-years-old.  I’m not sure how much he relied on his parents and his wife’s parents for support, but he himself, has a decent paying job where I met him at to take care of his kids on his own.  We don’t work together anymore.  I found another job.  Charley makes my 5-year fling with an “ex,” he makes my “ex” look so much like a scrub, and my “ex” is 28-years-old.

All I did at 21-years-old was live in the dorms and finish college, barely work part-time and I have no children.  I didn’t think he’d have time for anything else then I find out he has two small children.  At the time I was unsure if he was still with the mother of his children.  I was willing to let my usual deal breaker of not hanging out with a man who has children slide.  It’s really not that I’m insecure of his history with what would have been his ex.  I’d just rather not talk to her, not see her.  And here in my hometown, some bitches actually want to start drama with a girlfriend/wife when I’d rather not see nor talk to one period!  Honestly, though.

I never did anything at all with Charley.  We just talked as friends, but I did say I liked him.  He tried to be friends with me after we argued, it’s just that, it was too weird and awkward for me.  I can’t keep in contact with him.  It sucks because I think we both need more friends and only talk to barely any other people at all.  I think that’s why he sometimes called me out of the blue after I thought he would have forgotten about me.  Then one day, his wife called me for no good reason, actually.  I could have been friends with her, too, since I need to hang out with more women instead of mostly men all the time, it’s just that the situation was SO weird.  She wasn’t malicious in her phone call, she actually sounded like a decent person.  I know she was about to ask me a question but I wasn’t going to let her finish her question and hung up on her.  That call sent me a friendly reminder that there are some deal breakers I should keep:  Do not date someone who has to keep in contact with his ex and/or with children.  I will make no exceptions ever again, no matter how ambitious a man is.

Charley was a man who had huge tattoos all over his arms and didn’t seem like a father figure at all: SO wrong for me.  Some people think I was a huge college partier and I’m like, NOPE!  I’ve only been to three or four parties tops in my life, mostly working.  I used to go out sometimes in college, but not that much.  I’m glad I didn’t have anything with Charley because I met the most amazing man for me after Charley.  Although it is long distance, my friends are keeping their fingers crossed that it will work out with Travis and me.  I am hoping so, too.

What the hell is wrong with people?

You didn’t want to feed your months old baby because you wanted to play video games and smoke pot?  You know you can do all three dumb asses!  Maybe you should have used protection or close your legs if you can’t grow up and face responsibilities!  Damn, almost abortion would have been better then that hell death that little baby went through: died with fists clenched and eyes open, the hell these heartless monsters!  I’m not going to comment on abortion, though.  I have mixed feelings about it.

Poor baby who didn’t make it: http://www.foxnews.com/story/2008/02/21/parents-baby-left-alone-in-car-seat-for-8-days-face-murder-charges/

I am so happy to read this baby was saved: http://thelibertarianrepublic.com/baby-found-starved-nearly-death-lazy-parents-video/

I don’t care if you used to be a partier mother.  i know once a child is in the picture, I could never abandon that child if I ever have one.  People like my friends who can’t have children who would be way better parents than these scum bags and some of my friends don’t get the chance to have children, while filth reproduce.  There’s a special place in hell for parents like these in those two articles.

Articles like these makes me want to lose faith in humanity more and more each day.  They deserve the death penalty in the exact fashion they neglected their child: no food, no water, not being able to change for 8 days to see how they like it!  They deserve to be neglected and left alone until someone cares to give them anything the way they did their babies.
