Welcome to my world

Hey everyone and welcome to my lair.

You want to know what I believe? I believe anything is possible, that you can achieve a goal no matter how high.

That the world impossible is not a word, that red velvet cupcakes and cookies are a necessity. And that rambling, dreaming, and achieving are three things that get people success in this world.

I am currently on my first, yet to be edited draft of a novel I crafted that I am very passionate about: Obsessed.

You might hear more about it later. And it is over a 100,000 words, at least the word-count machine in microsoft word tells me so.

I love many tv-shows, including Smallville, Chuck, Nikita, and White Collar. I enjoy making characters, shipping TV couples, like Damon and Elena, Tess and Oliver, Michael and Nikita, Chuck and Sarah, etc, and writing fanfiction about my favorite couples on TV.

Hunger Games Thursday!!!

Hunger Games the world-wide phenomenon book-wise and movie-wise, is premering tonight at midnight in theaters. If you aren't excited, what are you doing reading this, cuz it says, "HUNGER GAMES THURSDAY!"

Is anyone going to the midnight showing? You won't catch me there. No, I need my sleep too much to risk two and a half hours for a movie I long to watch. So no, I will go this Saturday at 1 pm when the theater at the Megaplex is not nearly as full, with my mom, my sister, possibly Bryli our neighbor, my dad, and maybe my triplet brother, Jon.

DEFINITELY NOT My little brother, Riley. He is too young to watch HUNGER GAMES ON FILM!

Onto more important things: Is ANYONE and please someone say they are doing script frenzy in April besides me. A hundred pages people! Yes, it's a big change from novel-writing and our beloved characters who drive us nuts over the course of years we've been so whole-heartedly crafting them,  BUT CHANGE IS NECESSARY.

I challenge anyone and everyone to do Script Frenzy in April. I have put it off for two years because I was afraid. I, Emily Lane, was afraid of writing a 100-page script because I couldn't believe in myself enough to pull it off.

It changes now. In April I will be writing a script and it will suck, but don't all first drafts suck? So go for it, go crazy, write a serial killer and a cult, a clown and an assassin paired together by tragic circumstances, an under-water submarine and a business-man stuck permanently on an island with no chance of escape, because life in essence is too short.

What's your Script Frenzy Script about?

Mine is beginning to form in an outline.

Evelyn Shaw, college-drop out, has never been paid more than minimum wage in her life. The woman has no hope of ever getting a job outside Mcdonalds, and then she gets an offer from, Daniel Beaufry, handsome, generous, and her new boss, if she chooses to accept. She says yes, and gets whisked into his world. But it won't be so easy for poor Eve, between color-coordinating his outfits at midnight, dealing with his crazy, obsessive, greedy ex-wife Veronica, and planning a month's worth of events into a week long schedule.

So yeah, it has tons of flaws and holes and I don't even know if it'll be worthwhile in the end.

But writers need change, and this is my time to prove it to myself I can deal with change, by writing a script and perservering to the end, with no exceptions.

My supply list:
TWO liters of Doctor Pepper Ten.


Ice cream (preferably rocky road, Chunky Monkey, Sherbet of any kind, or chocolate).



Family laptop.

Cool pens that cost ten dollars (yes, I am the fool who paid ten dollars for a useless, only cool-looking pen that wouldv'e cost me much less at the flea market).

A new pen when I win.

My dog, Snickers, a little daschund who loves me with all the love in her big heart, and tiny body can muster.

Ipod with a fresh playlist.

Grooveshark when necessary, after inspiration runs out.

What's your supply list? And if your doing Script Frenzy, whats your script about?

Crazy Videos WEEK 4: Tess Mercer/Damon and Elena

This weeks video segment will be a mix of Smallville's Tess Mercer aka Sage on the Vampire Diaries, and Damon and Elena from (TVD)!

      Tess Mercer at her haunting and most best, being the kick *** woman that she is, and kicking both Chloe, Zod, Clark, and Oliver's butt's along with her. All while being gorgeous and super cool, and handy with a gun, might I add.

Happy ST. Paddy's Day!

I am not Irish. So I am not familiar with their customs and traditions on this day. What I do know is here in America...You don't wear green, like the Green Arrow, you get pinched.

So tell me, who wore green and who did not? If you did not wear Green, how many times did your family and friends pinch you? I did not wear green (I know, I'm a total rule-breaker), but my family nor my friends pinched me. Probably because I would have retaliated with a vengeance.

Did anyone kiss someone Irish? I sure hope not, or your cursed. At least that's what I hear when someone wears one of those four-leaf clover shirts that SPELL: KISS ME, I'M IRISH.

I decided to cut this short and give you ONE AWESOME picture of St. Patrick's Day Fun.

Teen Author Bootcamp From YOURS TRULY

Teen Author Bootcamp was unlike anything I've ever experienced.

To be in the presence of so many people who loved what I love, who all have similar goals: to write, and hopefully, make it a life-long profession.

Brandon Mull was amazing. Truly, the man is a writing genius and an inspiration. He oozed creativity, spoke of Literature, writing, and it's many elements with a passion that only someone as dedicated to his craft as he is could do.

Brandon Mull was the keynote speaker, and only had one class, and a 50 minute presentation that I attended with a potential friend, Erika, from my math class surprisingly enough. Good thing I sat by her.

Brandon also did signings for an hour at lunch, and ten to forty minutes before he started his presentation and his class.

 He answered my long-waited question about a hot, dangerously lethal, and equally beautiful Vanessa Sontaro (forgive me if i spell the name wrong). She was not created in inspiration of anyone, but rather, was a fantasy of his. 

He said, and I do not remember his exact words, something like, "He wanted to create a dangerous and beautiful character, and Vanessa was the outcome."

 I thought he based her off someone, and my relief to know, she was his creation, not based off someone else was immense. I don't know why. 

Anyways, I went to five or six classes including: Show Don't Tell me by Bethany Wiggins, Imagine That Creating Fablehaven by Brandon Mull, Beating out your Novel by Elana Johnson, Voice: Unleashing Doctor Frankenstein by Kristen Chandler, Character Bible by J. Scott Savage (who signed by notebook), Writers Cubed: Chit Chat Workshop Your Dialogue (which was cool, but I kinda wanted to go to Tyler Whitesides class instead, after I had sit on the floor and endure stuff I sort of already knew how to do). Not that i'm being arrogant or anything. 

Lastly,  I wish I could've gone to Elizabeth Mueller's Cutting Through the Pages.

All the classes were equally fabulous, and I regret not being able to go to Tyler Whitesides, who is the Author of Janitors, a good book, if you have not read it. And also not being able to go to Frank Cole's: Creativity is a super power. 

All the classes were great, LUNCH was pretty good, I had a kinda dry ham and cheese sandwich on a really dry croissant, pasta salad that was cold with balsamic vinaigrette's all over it (yuck), grapes, four cookies, two of which I gave to Erika, my partner of the day, and a lay's chip bag, (original). 

 Then I DRANK three Code Red cans of soda in my unlimited, refillable UVU soda bottle which can be reused at home with my own soda.

I filled it six times in total, two with Code Red, four with Doctor Pepper, no Diet included. And I tried a little apple beer which was pretty good, I have to admit.

Then, I WENT to my classes and at the end, after the Kindle Drawing which I did not win, and the signing of my copy of BRANDON MULL'S fourth Fablehaven book and a little chat with the brilliant writer, I got my feedback from my First Chapter Contest of which I submitted my story lessons in love and lost.

My consolation prize: a free Jr Frosty at Wendy's. I got a five from someone who loved my story and thought it could  and I quote, "Was a breath of fresh air and could hold it's own in the adult section."

Anyways, I GOT a 5, 3, and 1 FROM someone who must've really hated Romance. But hey, to everyone's own, right? 

I'll do better next year and hopefully win in the next one.

That was my experience. I learned more, I listened a lot, I took a bunch of notes and all in all, it wasn't a bad day after all, I got ENDLESS soda refills.

Besides, I have a potential friend now.

And she goes to Westlake and is in my math class.

If you're reading this, Skye, my oh so wonderful nano mentor, then "YEAH!" I made a friend. Aren't you proud of me?

I know you are.

BELOW is a picture of Brandon Mull that I did not Take, but I find that anyone who does not know who he is, should go out and buy all the FABLEHAVEN books now!

March: The Way Only Pots of Gold Can....

Make you wish March Leprechauns were real! Right? That'd pay my way through college for sure. Oh well. Too bad too sad, I'm over it.

Tommorrow is Tuesday, the day of the explore test, which I've already TAKEN, and I have to STAY in one class room, for THREE hours, to take a test, and then and only then CAN I EAT MY LUNCH!

I wish I could chuck that stupid pamphlet of rules at the back of the principals very shiny, bald head. (IF only he really were bald) then it'd be so easy to get away with that, right?

Anyway, I was inspired by another round of YOUTUBE videos for the segment of the week: Henry the Dachshund round two.

ENJOY the cute little daschund wagging his tail for balls, spaghetti, peanut butter and various others who aren't Henry the puppy that will MAKE you laugh and cry and be happy in general!




Henry unwillingly takes a bath! Yikes, watch out people, Henry the FEARLESS WILL SPLASH you.
