The Name Game

Current Mood: I be two on inkpop :D
Currently Listening to: "Tonight" by Sugarland
Earlier this week I realized I had a problem.
Almost of all of my MCs have names that end in the "ee" sound.
Don't believe me?

  • Cassie Dreandry
  • Bree Wells
  • Zoey Lauder
  • Elly Ellis
Four names, four "ee" endings. How weird is that? Okay, maybe not so much. Part of making a great MC is making the name work. Cassie went through at least a dozen last names before I finally came up with "Dreandry." And the queen bee at her school, Lorraine, was Karrie, that's not a mean girl name!!
But, half of the time as I develop plots in my mind, everyone is just "He" or "she." I hate naming people.
I change names a lot. And I neglect naming people.
So, what makes your character's name? What are the general rules for picking a name? How do you know that you've just found that name that works?
Let me know! Hopefully I'll change everything this afternoon, but who knows.

Some Changes Coming Soon

Current Mood: Like I said before, it's Friday!
Currently Listening to: "Down is Where I'm Going" by Miranda Lambert

So, because I've been neglecting the site for a while because I've got midterms next week and I'm behind on editing, but I'll be caught up tonight, and all this other crazy stuff, I'm going to redesign it again.
But, this will be a total redesign.

  • I'll be redoing the pages 
  • I'll be trying to write better posts on writing 
  • I'll be doing freebies for those people who want to design their blog (yeah, with my stuff?)
  • And I'll try to get some guests bloggers.
  • I'll be adding more info about the books and making new covers 
  • basically redoing all of Lala Land.

It'll be amazing!
I hope....
If there's anything you'd like to see when I change it all, let me know! Please! I love hearing from you guys!

love, lala

P.S. 
Here's a sneak peek of the kit I'll be using.

I Am SO Sorry

Current Mood:

FRIDAY! Enough Said


Currently Listening to: nothing, I'm at school
I am so sorry I haven't updated y'all in almost a week.
Expect a new post tonight or tomorrow.

A Special Preview

Current Mood: exhausted.
Currently Listening to: "I Won't Say (I'm in Love)
So, because I'm already behind on editing, and I'm tired of it for the day, I decided to give you guys a special treat.
It's not much, but I like the way it's going so far.

The sound of feet running across the ground fading. They must think I’m dead. Why else would they dump me here, in a ditch, in the middle of the forest? There is no other reason. They think I’m dead. They think it’ll be days before anyone finds me, and by then, I’ll certainly be dead.
It’s cold, I can feel the snow seeping through my blue jeans. I’m losing the feeling in my toes, and now it’s slowly beginning to creep up into my feet. I’m numb; I can only feel the pain on the inside, not the pain on the outside.
Even the moon can’t fight through the dark tree tops of this place. It’s completely dark; I can’t tell the difference between my hand and the snow it lays on top of. I can’t feel my hand either.
My wet hair is plastered all over my face and I’m starting to shiver. The only hope I have is that the sun will be rising soon. When I was in the car, I caught the sight of the clock on the dashboard that read “5:30.” Surely someone or something will me soon. Or can find the strength to go find help?
Part of me wants to go, but the other part just wants to lay here and freeze to death.
But I know I can’t.
That man deserves better, people need to know why he died and why I’m here, on the brink of death.
People have to know. I don’t think I’ll be able to stay sane if I don’t tell someone.
People will want to know. If I can get up and find help.
I’m scared, I’ll admit that, these past three weeks have been the most horrifying time of my life. But, I will let people know what has happened.
I just have to make sure I don’t freeze to death.
I will survive.


So, let me know what you think!

love, lala

A Heartfelt Thing

Current Mood: annoyed
Currently Listening to: "Holding Out for a Hero" by Bonnie Tyler

Well, inkpop, I'm getting extremely fed up with you.
I'm back down to four, in fact, Sunday night, I almost fell to six.
So....
If I fall out of the top five....
I am taking The Assassin down.
Why, you may ask?
It's too much. I've spent more nights crying myself to sleep because of all the stress of keeping it up there.
If I fall out, I'll be a shoo-in for November.
But I can't handle the stress for another month and a half.
So, yeah. That's it.

love, lala

I fell.

Current Mood: sad
Currently Listening to: "Defying Gravity: Live from SoundStage" by Idina Menzel
I am no longer three on inkpop.
I am four. I am very sad.
I am editing, that makes me even sadder.
Tomorrow is Monday. That's the saddest of all.
If I finish this chapter and part of chapter four of editing in the next hour (yeah right) I'll post the teaser of "Snatched" up.

love, lala
