Death Scenes

Hey guys,

I have always had a problem with writing death scenes. You always want to be able to pull at the reader’s heartstrings. You want to be able to make sure that emotion gets across to someone. How do you do that? What is the easiest way of creating that emotion and let’s face it; the worst feeling the world. Well, I came up with some tips for them. Some of these tips worked for me while writing and some didn’t. Which is perfectly okay! Find what works for you.

  • Don’t have them die of old age- After giving your character a long, fulling life many people won’t think this as sad. Yes, it’s a good way to finish off your story but it doesn’t pull at the heartstrings.
  • Leave one goal unfinished- It is the oldest trick in the book. Have the character not finish a goal. (ex. tell the girl he loves his feelings or finding his father etc.)
  • Give them a strong relationship with other characters- Give them relationships with characters that will make the death worse than if a side character was going to die.
  • Make them Fight- Have your character fight to the death. The sadness of the death will be worse after they lose the struggle.
  • Kill them in the Middle of their character arc. While they are still developing– kill them.
  • Don’t describe their funeral- To much detail into their funeral- may or may not kill the sadness.
  • Others Surviving: Place surviving characters in a situation where having the deceased person would have helped them get out. You can choose whether you will point this fact out. Or you can get the audience to make the connection.

Writing Prompts

I had been scrolling through Pinterest for different writing prompts. Wanting to get some of my writing skills back. Storytelling skills back etc.  I found a couple of prompts that I thought I would share. I wanted to see what other people could think of. What their interpretations of the prompts that I had found.  So, here it goes:


Prompt #1:

You live in a world where your soulmate is unable to hurt you. Intentionally or otherwise. You are fighting in a war when one of the enemy’s knives harmlessly glances off you.


Prompt #2:

You come back from holiday and find your best friend missing. You search desperately. But no one has any recollection of your friend ever existing. Eventually, you’re shipped off to a lunatic asylum. Where you find your best friend, who claims the same thing happened to them. But it was you that no one remembered.


Prompt #3:

His eyes were cold and lifeless as he stared at me. “You have no idea who I am, do you?”


Prompt #4

Literally, everything about this is illegal.


I am excited to see some of the writings. Like I said. I found most of these on pinterest and just typed in Writing Prompts.


Creating A Religion

Hello guys,

Back again. My next piece will be about creating a religion in your writing.

In your worlds, Religion can be very important to every culture. It can influence the people in everyday life– a large group of people. It’s important to define it if present in your world. It can also help you with building your world. Another way of thinking of the population.

Where You Can Start:

-Polytheist or monotheist: They are different and you must choose wisely as the religion you choose will have to fit your world. Polytheist and monotheist religions have different that will change the way you write. (Not only the number of gods but how the to worship or how they build temples.)

-Read About Other Religions: It is a good base and gives you some aspect for you to use in your writing. Reinterpret is a way of creating a new religion and you can take principles and change them.

-Decide the Characteristics of the Gods: After you have a clear idea of what you want for your religion- you have to put a clear point of characteristics.

  • Is your God(s) good or bad? so how are the gods seen by the humans, what are they famous for, what is their temper, are they revengeful or are they forgiving? If you create more than one god- you can have them represent different things.
  • Did your God(s) in contact with humans? the relationship with humans; so if they do interact with humans- do humans know about it? In this case when and how have they interacted with Gods. If they don’t meet humans you have to decide how they interact/ communicate with them and how.
  • Physical Appearance: If they had a physical appearance- you need to describe it or describe characteristics that the god would have in a physical form.


Worship: With the points before you have to decide how humankind will worship or view the God(s). Some points to consider would be:

  • Is all the population religious?: This is important because there you can determine the relationship between those who believe and those who don’t.
  • What role does religion have in the state?: So if religion has a political power, how much power will it have and if is used for good and bad.
  • What are the religious institutions?: Is there a leader, what are the offices, how were they built, how much institutions influence the population, who influences the population and where are the institutions?
  • Where: Where can the people go to worship
  • How: This is the most important aspect but the more complex. You have to define how the people practice their own religion. Do they pray? Do they make sacrifices? What rules influence their daily lives? Festivals? Parties? Rituals? Symbols of the religions?


The Name: The name can be one word or more, but, it’s better if not more than four. It can be a word or a period that describes a fundamental principle of the religion or something like. “The Belief of X.”


The thing that will always be important to remember when you are creating a religion- Religions tend to give a sense of belonging to the believers. This can be used in a lot of different ways and is a important specially if your new religion has a politic power or a large influence on the population of people.


Creating Characters

Hey guys,

I have been roleplaying for several years now. And, from time to time- I sometimes get asked about how I create my character and make sure that you get all the main characteristics of your characters.

So, I decided that I would start my adventure here for creating characters and my ideas. And, I am also going to start writing a little bit about ideas for stories too. I want to write down my stories or thoughts that I get every once in awhile. My creations as my friends call them.

Anyways, onto the list of things that I try to follow when creating characters.


Family is a huge thing about each character. Do they have a family? Are they alone? If they have a family, is it a large family or small? Brothers? Sisters? The list could go on and on and on. Which means you would have to create a backstory for each of your characters.

The questions I usually try to answer are:

  • Mother- relationship with her
  • Father- relationship with him
  • Siblings- relationship
  • Spouse(s): relationship
  • Children: relationship
  • and any other important family members. (Aunt’s or Uncles. etc.)



Every person has habits that they know of and doesn’t know of. Example: When I am nervous I rub my thumb over my forefinger- almost to the point that it’s raw. Each character should have some of these traits to make them more believable and so the reader can get attached to them a little easier.

Some traits or habits you should think about when writing is:

  • Hobbies: what do they like to do in their spare time? How do they do it? What kind of things do they enjoy? What don’t they enjoy? What is their bucket list? Stuff like that.
  • Examples play a musical instrument or play a sport.
  • How would your character s pend their day if it was raining?
  • Spending habits: Do they go shopping or not?
  • Smokes
  • Drink
  • Drugs
  • What does she/he do too much of?
  • What does she/he do too little of?
  • Skills?
  • Talents
  • Nervous Tics
  • Usual body posture
  • Mannerisms
  • Peculiarities

Past and Present:

The past and present elements of each character will be their backbone. It will be their lifelines when you don’t know what direction to take their stories and what directions the character may choose to go.

  • Hometown
  • type of childhood
  • Pets
  • First Memory
  • Most important childhood memory
  • why
  • Childhood Hero: Why?
  • Dream job:
  • Education
  • Religion
  • Finances
  • Current locations
  • Currently living with
  • Pets
  • Religion
  • Occupation
  • Finances


So this is the starting of the character designs that you could do with your characters. It will give you a base for your characters as they grow. I hope I can help someone figure out their characters a little bit better.

Thank you for reading. We will see you again.



Changing Pace


So I am an Early Childhood Educator. I am creative and want to represent that here on the blog. I want to make a blog with tutorials and other personal things that I have created for the classroom that I work in.

I create felt projects, music projects, science experiments etc.

I will start to create pages with the projects on them. Post a little bit about what it is. What we did. How I created it and maybe even a little about how the kids liked it. How they played with it.

So, I will be starting that soon. (As soon as I have some stuff to post.)

Maybe tomorrow.
Thank you for reading.


Life Milestones


My life milestones have been far from perfect. Of course, if you asked five-year-old me, what I wanted to do when I was little; I wanted to be a mom. I wanted to be married, have kids and just live in the perfect house. All by the age of 21. Like my mom and dad before me.

Well, I am now 21-years-old and I can tell you that those milestones did not happen this year. I am completely okay with that.

I am okay with not being married right now or engaged. Although, my current boyfriend seems to think he will be proposing to me. (After five months, I am being a little hard on the idea.) The reason I am okay with not being married is that I am not ready to be someone’s life partner. I have too many personal problems I wish to deal with first before committing myself to one person. I want to mentally healthy for it.

I do not own my own house yet. (Although, I am looking for one right now.) I decided to go back to school once I was done high school and took Early Childhood Education. Being the first one in my family to go back to school. It was a large family milestone. Now, I am working on saving a down payment for the house, as well as, furniture and money for our dog who gets surgery in January.

I am also not a mother. Which right now, neither of us are ready for. Once I know for sure that this is the man I want to be with the rest of my life. Maybe we will start talking seriously about kids. But, I would also like to start putting money away for the child. So we can buy everything we need for them. Clothing, food, etc.

So at 21-years-old, I can proudly say- that I am okay that I didn’t meet my 5-year-old expectations. That I am happy with the milestones I have hit; going back to college, thinking about going back to get my degree, I am in a happy relationship, I have a puppy, and I am working full time.

I am happy to be where I am today.

I hope that someone reading this will make a post like this too. My advice for anyone- Take a moment to appreciate what you have and what you want to accomplish.

New Year’s Resolutions


December just started and it’s becoming that time of year to start thinking about New Year’s Resolutions. I never like doing these things. They are pointless things that are always focusing on superficial things. Losing weight or eating healthier. Everyone does some of the same things. I would have nothing to do with that. Of course, I should eat healthier and work out. But, it’s not what I would call a New Year’s Resolution.

My New Year’s Resolution would be something along the lines of creating a happier environment for myself.

Being happy, relaxing, being healthy (not being sick) and succeeding in this new life I have created. I am going to set a New Year’s Resolution to help me succeed in those ideas for myself.

I am not a hundred percent sure how I will accomplish that yet. Will have to post another article on how I decide to do this. But, I wanted to post something that would help me start on this journey.

Definitely, need to start going for walks again. Getting really tired of being inside all day. But, that is for another post.

Thank you for reading. Hope to see you soon.


Wide Awake


I haven’t been on very much lately. I haven’t had much time to talk or even write. I have had a lot to talk about and a lot bugging me. But, it has been a great time none the less.

I guess it’s time I start journaling my thoughts and feelings again. Of course, I know people are going to see this online. I know that it will help me sleep better at night when I do it. So, time to start writing again.

In August, my ex-broke up with me over text while I was with my family on vacation. I got Tinder (my best friend signed me up to help me keep my mind off it.) I mindless talked to guys and tried to keep my mind off my ex. Read 14 books during the trip. When I got back home. Well, I was stuck in a rut.

I went on a couple of dates, hooked up with a few guys. But, nothing felt right.

Meet this boy (or man) on the site. We hung out, had a great time. Now, we have been dating for 5 months. We are looking at getting our own place, we share custody of an 8-month-old husky and are in love.

We are spending Christmas together.

I am working at a job I thought I would love it. But, I am starting to feel worn down already. It’s only been five months at this job. Unless, I decide to try a different centre. Anyways, I am looking for new working experience.

I am also trying to pay off loans and other money expenses. While also working with my partner to figure out his money problems. Sometimes feeling completely overwhelmed.

I have never really had girlfriends (girls who are friends). I always had guyfriends. But, with this job I have gained a couple of really close friends and everything is turning out really good in that point of view.

One of the girls who I am getting really close with we are thinking about starting a felt company. She and I love creating felt creations in our spare time. We think we could really do it. For some extra money. So, we could work together and create, and be creative. So that’s another positive thing in my life right now.

Another positive thing about my life right now. It’s my boyfriend. He is keeping me grounded. He is always making me happy and always willing to take my thoughts into account.


I am very happy. Thank you for reading. Hope to see you again soon.
