New Project, New England Authors

I’ve started compiling a list of Famous Writers from New England! 

Still working on the list. But this is what I have so far. I’m proud to be from New England and live where so many great writers have lived. Thought I’d make page to show off my home.

Travel Ideas

So if you don’t know this yet I’m a huge Roald Dahl Fan. (I mostly love Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.) While reading ” Story Teller: The Authorized Biography of Roald Dahl” I found that he has a museum in the UK! Visiting the Roald Dahl museum is officially on my bucket list. It’s located in Great Missenden which “was home to Roald Dahl for 36 years until his death in 1990. He wrote all of his children’s books and many of his adult short stories in the Writing Hut he had built in his garden. Many of Roald Dahl’s stories are based in and around the village.”

Not only do they have a museum, they also have a Charlie and the Chocolate Factory eye shadow palette!

I Want It All

I Want It All suit-673697_1280

Sitting in my cardboard box room
Only small coin in my hand
Flip on the tube, there’s happy people
Living well across the land
Got bright smiles and new clothing
Spending money just for fun
Why should they have all the pleasure
Why not let me dance in the sun

I want it all
I want it all and then some
I want it all
I want it all for myself

I work my fingers to the marrow
I don’t complain, do what I’m told
But every week my check keeps shrinking
While suits upstairs rake in the gold
I don’t wish bad on anybody
That’s what I’d say if you would ask
But in my heart I know I’m lying
I’m plotting out a darker task

I got a plan to get my share now
Gonna keep it short and sweet
I’m gonna make a revolution
And crush the pigs beneath my feet
Put all their money in a pile
I’ll swim in it like Scrooge McDuck
And when the poor creeps come round begging
Laugh in their face, won’t give a fuck

I want it all
I want it all and then some
I want it all
I want it all for myself

Dear Writer,

Your words give me something to live for. I have plenty to live for, but your words get me out of bed when the world is weighing so heavy nothing else matters. I truly wish the best for you and when the best finds you (if it hasn’t yet) I hope you don’t lose yourself in it. And that we can continue to learn and grow together. 🙂

Sincerely,
Sasch

P.S.
I hope to memorize your stuff over time

Favorite Bloggers of all time

My all time favorite blogger is S.K. Nicholas at Myredabyss.com. s.k.

He just amazes me with his brain and creativity. His blog has grown and evolved along with him and it’s quite entertaining to watch. He has yet to bore me. I always feel my review of his blog will never be good enough. So I just like to share his link and tell everyone I love it. He has written two books A Journal for Damned Lovers I & II. You should check them out and buy them when your funds are replenished, you know, from all the holiday shopping.

 

The first blogger I’ve ever read religiously and still do is Cristian Mihai. cristian

He writes inspirational blog posts, books, and shares his experiences on being a writer. I always learn something new from his posts. He is enlightening and inspiring and has improved my writing thought processes in so many ways. Sometimes I can even hear his advice in my head when I’m second guessing myself (which is quite often). He writes about real life content and uses his real life experiences to improve others artistry. None of that fluffy bullshit like “everything just magically landed in my lap.” He writes about the true struggles of being a writer. He has written a handful of books and I’m sure there are more to come. One of my favorites of his is Jazz. I couldn’t put it down. It’s about a writers journey including love, loss, and it’s great.

 

And last but not least I love Dirty Sci-Fi Buddha’s Musings . scifibuddha

He makes me think with every Musing post. And he’s really good at relating it all to writing and creating in general. He’s interesting, thought provoking, and always seems to keep me coming back for more. He wrote Echo volumes 1, 2, & 3. What I’ve read so far is action packed and quite entertaining.
