Journal #4

Hey buddy,

I know that it has been awhile since I have written in you. I have been with a guy. He makes me so happy. His name is Tyler, and he has black hair and blue eyes. I have always had a thing for a guy like this. He is a hunter, and he helps me kill the monsters. He also rides a motorcycle.  Funny thing is he calls his, Sweetie.

His eyes light up when they see me, and I hope that we can be together for a long time. I have never been able to keep a relationship, because of the work that I do. They never want to stick around because they are scared of me or don’t believe me about what I do. Tyler is so sweet though, and he is thoughtful. He makes me feel special and loved.

I wanted you to know about him because I wanted to make sure that I wrote down what I felt when I felt it. I wanted to make sure that I wrote about what happiness was and how it made me feel at the moment. I have never felt so happy and loved and this is the first time that I have felt this way.

Thank you for letting me drone on about a man that I just met and yet he makes me feel so loved and happy. Tyler is going to be the one man that I spend the rest of my life. He can be the one that makes me settle down and stop hunting, but that would take a lot to make me stop. I need to find Doryan, but for now, I am happy.



I Need to Write More

I have been terrible about keeping up with my writing. I am trying to make it a point to write something every day. I feel that if I don’t write, I don’t feel like I am doing what I need to be doing. I challenge all of you to write every day for the rest of your life. May it be in a journal, poetry, or just blogging.

I wanted to give you a little piece of myself today. I love to write, but I have been swamped lately, and have not been the writer that I want to be. I wanted to share a seasonal poem that I have written.

Halloween Time

Reds, yellows, and oranges too

Fall leaves of many colors all around

The wind is blowing along the ground

Shivers up and down your spine

For you know that it’s Halloween Time


Devils, angels, zombies, and monsters

Are they real or in your imagination?

Could be a mad scientist’s creation

Mixing potions like he is blind

For he knows that it’s Halloween Time


Candy apples, chocolate, and more

The children all love to eat

What the witch’s make them as a treat

Stirring the cauldron with rhythm and rhyme

For they know that it’s Halloween Time


Parties, sleepovers, and movie night

Families share their stories of horror

To see whose can be gorier

When scary tales seem to feel sublime

For they know that it’s Halloween Time

Writing can be Challenging

Have you ever felt like writing is not the thing for you? I have felt this way when I don’t get enough work done when I feel like I should have done more. I need to make sure that I am writing in my life no matter what it may be. I need to positively write. That is what I want to do for a living, so I must make this a priority. I was just wondering if I am alone in this feeling.

I hope that all of you are getting in the writing that you need. I know that I feel like I do not have time to do this, but in reality, I do have the time. I haven’t posted in a few days and that makes me feel like I am not keeping up with my writing. I just need to sit down and write at least for an hour every day. This would help me to get my work done and just write the way that I want to.

Good luck to all of you that do write and are having a struggle with it like me. Thank you for listening to me and what I have to say. I hope that I can help you if you need it. I have so many ideas for short stories and books that it would last a lifetime. I just hope one day that we accomplish our dreams and get to write for a living.

Hi Everybody

Starting over


My name is Melinda, but my friends call me Nina. I wanted to share with you that I decided to recently start over with my website, and create something new that would hopefully gain some traction. I would like to connect with you if you want to read each other’s work and develop a kind of network of our own.

I review books on the side, so if you have a book that you would like me to review, please let me know. I also beta read if you need that. I only ask that you send me your books in Mobi or PDF format.

My email is

I look forward to meeting all of you and creating something special together. Welcome to my blog. I will also post ideas for stories and some of my own works so that you can see what I can do as well. Again thank you for showing interest in me and hopefully making some excellent connections.
