Happy Halloween!

Image
Hey, my lovely and spooky readers!! Happy Halloween to all of you! I hope that you all have a great day today and to stay safe at all times! Those of you who are trick or treating to get tons of candy, and those who are going out partying and drinking keep safe and don't do anything crazy. I've never really been trick or treating in my recollection. I've only gone a few times and it was fun. I love sour candies the best!!! Whenever I got those in my bucket I squealed like the happier kid alive. You'll never be me in sour candy eating contests hahaha. 
I just wanted to bring up something I witnessed on the bus this morning on my way to work. Holidays regardless big or small make people extra simple and kind and there really are no boundaries. A lady this morning was very nice to a woman and her child giving her child candy and also telling the mother where they should go trick or treating. They were talking like they were good friends and having a casual talk.

Writers are Degrading Themselves

Image
As a writer, I am sometimes sickened by how much writers are willing to degrade their work to satisfy their agents, publishers, and audiences. This is one of reasons I am very reluctant to let others see my work because I don't want to hear that I should change this or that. I feel it it's grammatical things have to correct it's fine but not when it's uprooting a mass apart of the plot or a scene or a character. Because we as writers put so much effort, time, creativity into creating a story, and it gets dissected and analyzed by readers and agents and if they don't like it then it doesn't sell or worse, doesn't get published. That's a really cruel way to shoot down someone's work they've worked on for years. But you're supposed to get used to that right? Endless piles of rejection letters before someone says yes. There is always the option of self-publishing but if readers don't like your book, you still don't have any audiences. 

Talk On Tea types

Image
Sorry for no blog posts for so long! I didn't have any internet other than on my phone which I didn't want to use too much. But I am back now! I apologize to all my readers!

Today I shall talk about tea! I don't usually drink tea too often because they're so pricey. The brands I buy anyway from Asian supermarkets. I do want to learn to grow tea trees, so I can gather my own tea leaves and dry them and brew them for tea. Mmmm. I wonder if it's possible to grow a tea tree indoors since I don't have a yard.

Anyways here are the three types of tea I usually drink in the order I rank them as.

Green tea has always been my top choice for tea. A fun fact is that it's been used in China for 4,000 years in medicine! Amazing isn't it! I am happy I come from a tea drinking ancestry and country.
Drinking green tea lowers bad cholesterol and balances good and bad cholesterol out, it reduces risks of certain cancers, reduces chances of cardiovascular disease, prevent toot…

Penmanship

Image
I was having a nice talk with a friend today about handwriting because they have horrible handwriting and it can't be helped! I can't even get them to do a penmanship lesson with me. I know technology is so advanced now that everything is typed and paper and pens really don't have that much use unless you're in school or at work.

However, I'm an 80's baby and I haven't fallen behind with technology, but I certainly will not give up my love and passion of how a pen or pencil feels in my hand, the sound of it dancing across a notebook nor the smell of the ink on the paper. It's such a fragile thing that sound be treasured and preserved in my opinion.

My aunt used to coach me horribly with penmanship when I was in grade school as soon as i could read and write. She would have me sit in her kitchen and give me paper, pens and pencils and watched me copy line after line from books and words. She would hold my hand and guide it across the page slowly and ele…
