Fan-tasy first round of edits done.....

Oh wow, I wanted them, right? Yup. I kept checking my email everyday for the edits and when I got them. Oh wow. I finished thou I have to say Im pretty proud of myself. It the story had been over 20k I dont think I would have finished tonight. Well knows what the mind can do once the muse is on and kicking.
This whole experience has been a roller coater ride of up and downs. Everyday there is something new to learn. It's not easy. By NO means am I saying I could do this in sleep or blah blah. Nope this is no easy task my friend. I love it. I here at almost 2 in the morning, my work hours looming in my near future and I have the stamina of King Kong right now, yanno?
Ppfft... maybe I should go to bed.
I don't know, but I do know tomorrow is another filled with more lessons. I just hope my eyes and heart are open enough to see them
Good night and Good Morning,
Raven Starr

Vampire's Embrace excerpt.....

This room is huge. The cathedral ceiling was perfectly balanced between four ceiling to floor pillars. The pillars were made from some kind of stone. In the back of the room, two figures sat incased in a wavy translucent light. Kia walked towards them she heard creatures in the darkness scattering around her.
“Just keep your mind clear and stare straight at them. Don’t worry about the darkness.” Tristan whispered a warning to her. Kia exhaled slowly and focused her sight on the light, once they got close, a booming voice said,
“STOP!” Instantly, they both stopped.
“What is this, Tristan?” said the voice again. Kia wished that the voice wasn’t so loud, her ears were ringing as she concentrated on the creatures scattered in the void of darkness.
“She’s the hybrid of the prophecy.” Tristan said clearly.
“Oh, really?” another voice sounded in the distance.
“Yes.” Tristan replied
“Has it stared yet?” the more male sounding voice of the two said.
“Yes.” Tristan answered.
“Good.” Said the voices in unison.
It has stared, that is good. Now we must change her .We must change her. She must be a part of all; we must drain her, but slowly, to feast on her very tasty flesh. The damn Lycans have scarred her, but no matter she will taste good nonetheless .We must have it, it must be ours.
Holy shit, are they talking about eating my flesh?
No one is draining me! I gotta get the hell outta here
Quickly scanning her surroundings, she tried to work out plan of escape. Tristan saw her glancing around and knew that she was again tense. What the hell is she doing now? She worries too damn much
“Tristan, you have done a wonderful job. You may leave us now.”
Tristan smiled at Kia as if saying good-bye, but there was something in her eyes, screaming at him. As Tristan walked towards the door with a heavy feeling in his chest, he heard her voice screaming in his head,
They are going to FUCKING eat me!
As Tristan’s hand slowly turned the knob, he bowed his head contemplating his very destiny. He reached into his coat pulled out his Glock, and flipped off the safety lock.
“Get down!” he yelled moving swiftly towards her.

Fan-tasy Excerpt..Enjoy

A tingle of excitement ran down her spine. Star slipped in the cab and closed the door. The cab drove down the street only to blend in with all the other traffic.
Closer and closer the cab drove Star to her final destination. Her destiny. Her stomach churned and hummed with a sensation she hasn’t felt in a long time. Butterflies. I need a damn drink, she thought. Maybe she was obsessed, maybe these were delusions of crazed woman, the beginning of a new stalker.
“Just relax. What ever happens tonight happens.”
“We go home and live again tomorrow, yeah?” Kaylee joked.
“Yea you’re right. I need to relax. I need a drink.”
Just then the cab pulled up in front of the venue. Loud music filtered out onto the crowded street.
“Here ya go.” Star flashed a smile while she pulled out a ten dollar bill and handed it to the cabbie. “Keep it,” she smiled getting out of the cab.
“Thanks and have a good night,” the cabbie yelled back.

Yay, my personal goal is complete

Save Yourself (Poetry Korner)

Save Yourself.

Save yourself from hell.
The burning wells,
that creeps into your brain.
Causing you to go insane.

Instead of drowning in sorrow and pain.
Try to love and refrain
let all your troubles
wash away with the rain.

Imagine- Poetry Korner


Imagine you were here.
And I could touch your face.
I can now imagine your strong but gentle embrace.
I have waited for so long,
to feel this strong.
To show you all the love I have inside.

Imagine there is a love.
Powerful like no other.
One where we are true
and good to one another.
Imagine how good that feeling will be.

Imagine that you could really love me.
