It’s Like the Full Moon chapter 1(wip)

“Wow I wish my dad was as crappy as yours if it means getting bling like this,” she said, in her usual joking tone.

Rebecca replied softly with exhaustion, “It is beautiful isn’t it?”

“Yeah, girl. It’s really special.” Lisa turned around crossing her legs and looked around the room. “So I guess this will definitely be a birthday you won’t soon forget will you?”

“No I suppose not,” answered Rebecca.

“Say Becca, when does Teddy finally graduate? It seems like he’s been in school since we were in college?”

“He has miss-oblivious,” snapped Rebecca comically. “He’s only three years younger than us. He’s just finishing up his Master’s degree in Business Economics and he’s already passed the Bar examine. He’s going to be a great finance lawyer. He walks next month”

“Correction!” snapped Lisa. “He’s only two years younger than me; remember I’m not as old as you. I skipped a grade.”

A Day In My Life: June ’13- Birthdays

dayNlifeYou may or may not find this surprising, but as a writer I’ve never been much of a journaler (I like making up words). I’ve always kept writing, sketching, and poetry notebooks, but I’ve never really liked writing about myself. This monthly post is my attempt at rectifying that and is an opportunity for me to get a little personal, as I share a single event from my life.

******************************************************************************

June 5, 2013

My husband and I refer to June as Birthday month. For instance, today is my nephew’s and his father’s birthday…but wait there’s more. So far this month, Tim and Ben, two other brother’s-in-law of mine had birthdays and so did my sister Tori, but that’s not where it ends. I still have cousins and friends birthdays to acknowledge along with my dad, Dennis, my husband, Eric, and my father-in-law, Sam. I’m pretty sure there is someone else I’m leaving out, but oh well.

In the end, I guess the existence of birthday month is the reason I made my character, Mira, born in this month.  Anyway, because of all the birthdays and family tradition, all my local family gathered together for our monthly family dinner/birthday celebration. It was a really good time. I do love my family!

Character Files from the ToiBox 17: Bletsian ( an alter ego)- Bio

ECGA-B

Bletsian-bkBiography:  Subject EC:GA 2-Bletsian

Bletsian is born into a state of dormancy. He remains in the shadows as an idea for centuries until he is desperately needed. He shares the same ancestry as Giovanni, but he’s forced into mental abandonment. He becomes Giovanni’s dark secret until his true purpose is revealed. Then he becomes Giovanni’s salvation. Bletsian’s true tale doesn’t begin until Giovanni’s life comes to climax.
