Twitter Break



As some of my followers know, I've been taking a twitter break. I won't lie. It hasn't been easy and I've sneakily logged in yesterday and today.  I even uninstalled the app to keep temptation at bay, but that isn't going over very well. So here's my adventure on how my Twitter break is going.  I've even created to do lists to keep me busy.


Sunday, February 10, 2019


I uninstalled the app.  I was even able to catch up on some YouTube Videos.  I've missed watching those. Of course, missing my followers and friends. I watched returns of  The Golden Girls most of the day.


Monday, February 11, 2019


I woke up at 4:00 am and sneakily logged in because I had this odd dream about Twitter. It's crazy how much Twitter is a part of our lives and how addicted we are to social media.  I think taking breaks from social media once in a while can be very healthy. So here's what my to-do list looked like today.

Captured

She locked me in

She grins evilly and says,  "this is for your sin,"  

I don't know how to get out.

Now there's a drought

Great

I'm stuck here.

She's going to curse me  

I just know it  

Maybe there's no need to fret

She grins and says,  “Aren't you glad we met?”





Whisper

Whisper

I'm freaking out

And I just want to shout  

I just heard a whisper  

A whisper in my ear  

Is this thing preying on my fear?

I'm in the room alone

It wasn't me

It keeps following me

It just won't let me be

All I want to do is shout

And I'm freaking out

I just heard  a whisper  

A whisper in my ear  

Not So Judgmental (Rewrite)

Introduction

Int. Hospital  

October 20, 2003  

Nurses rush in to take Silver's baby away from her.

Silver

What's going on? Where are you taking my baby? What's wrong? Why aren't you answering me? Charles, what's going on?  

Doctor Maze

Mrs. Gates? First, let me congratulate you on your baby girl. However, there is something I feel I must warn you about.  

Silver

What is it?

Doctor  

Perhaps it's better if I show you?  Nurse?  

The nurse gently places the baby in Silver's arms.

For a moment but only a brief moment, Silver is shocked by her baby's appearance, However, her husband  Charles has a different reaction to the baby.  

Charles

What did you do to her? We're suing you for malpractice!  

Doctor Maze

Mr. Gates, I understand your upset, but I can assure you I did nothing wrong. Sometimes these things happen.

Charles

These things? Did you just say these things?

Silver

Charles- Is there anything special we need to know about her arm?

Doctor Maze

Nothing really. If I  may be blunt? You still have options. She's going to get lots of stares and insults  thrown her way.  

Silver

Options? Just what are you saying, Doctor? Are you suggesting that I don't want my child because she's different?  That may be, but in my book, that makes her special. I'm going to teach my daughter to be brave, strong and confident.

Silver

Jania! Get down here! You're going to be late and you don't want to be late for your first day of high school, do you?  

(Jania runs downstairs)

Window Witch

Maybe I'm just seeing things 

Or maybe this is what karma brings

But at my window,I think there's a witch

I'm too scared to flip my light switch 

Her glare makes me shiver

What has she come here to deliver?

Maybe if I pretend she's not there

She'll go away 

But she only laughs and says, "that'll only make me stay." 


Dreams Come True (Daniel Radcliffe fanfic)

"Come on. I don't want to be late," I sigh to my sister Skylar. She's sitting in front of her mirror brushing her hair. She brushes her hair ten times a day. How she has that much time on her hands? Well. I am not sure. She whirls around to glare at me.  "I know you're excited, Clover, but can you hold your horses for a few seconds at least?"  


"I'm sorry, but I don't want to be late  and besides, we have the good seats, remember? This time it was Skylar's turn to sigh.   "I can't believe I let you talk me into going to this ridiculous play. I'm not even a fan."  


I grin.   "That's what makes you such a good sister," I say hoping that would work well enough to get back on her good side.  There's one thing you need to know about me. Well, two actually.  For most of my life, I've been an outcast. Not just because of my psychical scars but because of my shyness, and the one thing that truly makes me happy? Daniel Radcliffe plays and movies.  My sister being the amazing sister she is bought me expensive play tickets over Christmas.   


"I know what you're trying to do. You think if you compliment me I'm going to give in and hurry for you," Skylar responds to my compliment.  


“Is it working?”

The Powerful Five



The Powerful Five: Part 1: Melody's Story Continues


Feb 1  


Melody woke up to the smell of birthday cake and pancakes. She stood in the doorway of the kitchen, listening to everyone sing happy birthday to Jeanie.  "Where is Melody? I thought she'd want to be here for this," Ian said.  


“I'm right here. I'm sorry. I slept in. The audition that I had kept me up all night.”  Grim looked up and frowned at Melody. “You've been doing that a lot lately. I'm starting to get worried,” Grim said with a hint of concern in his voice.


Ignoring Grim, Melody turned to Jeanie to tell her happy birthday.  After breakfast, Grim gathered everyone in the training room. He walked around explaining how to better control their powers.  He stopped in front of Melody.  "It seems that someone hasn't been listening to me. If you would spend more of that time training than you do showing off, your powers would be stronger by now," Grim said. Melody rolled her eyes.  


"Did you just roll your eyes at me? Let me tell you something, Melody.  I am not Kent. I am not as  patient or as  kind as him and I do not give second chances. You have to prove me that you're as serious about being a hero as you claim to be. Understood?" Melody nodded. For the rest of the training session, Grim ignored Melody and that was just the way Melody preferred it.

Star In My Sky

A song for my brother




Star In My Sky


I won't lie
I wish I could reach the sky
I wish I could reach through it for your hand
Tell me how beautiful is that land?


You're still
my star in the sky
I won't lie
I wish I could reach through it for your hand
Tell me how beautiful is that land?


Continue to watch over me
Everyone keeps telling me how proud you would be
But I won't lie
I wish I could reach the sky
I wish I could reach for your hand
Tell me how beautiful is that land


You're still the star in my sky
And that's a not lie
But your journey has come to an end here on earth
You've gone home
But without you I feel so alone


So whenever I feel lonely I look to the sky
I won't lie
Without you everything seem to be a mess


I won't lie
I wish I could reach the sky
I wish I could reach through it for your hand
Tell me how beautiful is that land?

Heart of a Cane



My name is Leigh and I have a bad knee. No, I am not a poet. I just like to rhyme sometimes. My dad always says that's a waste of time. Okay, okay. I'm getting off topic. I blew out my knee playing basketball and I'm writing this story in my journal as I'm waiting for the doctor to come out and see me.  My dad looks over at me shakes his head.  


He's never really approved of my passion for writing. He thinks it's a ridiculous dream, but I am determined to somehow and someway to prove him wrong.  "Leigh Harper?" Someone calls.  I gather my things and follow the nurse and my dad back to the office.  


"How's it looking, doc?" My dad asks. He likes to pretend to be concerned, but all he really cares about is me playing basketball and I don't have the heart to tell him that I hate basketball. Don't get me wrong.. I'm good at it. I just don't like it. I'm not boasting. I'm just informing you of my skills.   


"I'm sorry, Leigh, but it looks like you won't be playing basketball anytime soon. Your knee still hasn't healed." My dad looks disappointed, but I'm secretly relieved. Once we get home and tell my mom what happened, she suggests that I use the old cane in the closet.  


"I'll be the laughing stock of the school then," I say, hoping that this will be the end of the conversation, but it's not.

The Wisher



Act One Scene One: Melody's Story


October 31


Narrator


In a land known as Wish Landia,there is a college that specializes in training students on how to use and control their abilities, but this is not my story to tell it's Melody's.   


(Melody nervously knocks on the door and see that it's ajar, she pushes it open)  


Kent looks up and holds a finger up to let her know he'll be with her in just a moment and also motions  for Melody to take a seat.


Kent hangs up.


Melody


You wanted to see me, Headmaster?  


Kent


Before we get started.. as I recall, it's your birthday today. I have something for you.  (Pulls out a little black box)  


At Melody's hesitation, Kent gives an encouraging nod.  


Melody


Headmaster, it's beautiful, but I can't accept it. And speaking of that, is this even appropriate? I'm your student.   


Kent


That's what I want to talk to you about.  As you know, we offer students jobs their last year, but I don't want to offer you just any job. I want to offer you the job as an advisor. As an advisor, you'd be giving advice to Belinda and me on the wishes and powers to grant.  (Pulls out a wand) See this? This is a wisher. I must caution you not to be angry with this in your possession. I've found that when we're angry, we sometimes make wishes we never intended to make. Which is why we need an advisor to give advice on its proper use.  


Melody


I don't know what to say. This is.. very... well... unexpected.  


Kent


I hope you'll have an answer for me after lunch. You're dismissed.
