About Colors_of_the_Wind

Biography

Hi. Just completely deleted the run-on blabber that was once here. My name on here is Colors_of_the_Wind. My legal first name is Aria. I have been writing for a decade and I still come up with some crappy ideas and some wonderful ideas so I don't think that really goes away ever. My characters run around in my head all day, most of the time just making a ruckus nowadays, but sometimes actually yelling at me to write something. Philena is famous for that.

I'm that writer that loves writing cliff hangers, but hates to read them.

Currently at DQ part time and own my own little online shop. Currently working on its website which you can find the link to at the bottom of this bio! I sell lotions, bath truffles, fizzy creations, lip balm, unisex fragrances, wax melts, and beard care items & am working on adding artisan bar soap and natural deodorant. #inspirationiseverywhere for these items, so the things I have listed are nowhere near the amount of things I have plans for!

I write realistic fiction that usually starts as an awareness piece and evolves into something larger, as well as poetry and the once-in-a-blue-moon song. I love reading fantasy, but have tried and cannot write it, though I do enjoy supernatural, post-apocalyptic and the occasional romance. I've begun writing the sequel to my realistic fiction series called Tomorrow which you can find the first chapter of here: http://www.storiesspace.com/stories/general/today-chapter-one.aspxbut I've not continued it yet because I'm working on a reboot of the original series (which is why you can't access them anymore, sorry!). I'm also working on my vampire story and one having to do with an alternate dimension or something. I'm still ironing out all those details, haha.

Don't try to preach at me or pull the age card, those are big pet peeves. Other than that, I love everyone.

Consult below for any other questions you may have, or message me.

I enjoy creating, so I love writing and creating characters, I love making my fragrances and soaps and wax tarts and I enjoy baking and cooking and creating my own recipes in both of those fields. I've always loved spreading awareness because ignorance breeds bigotry and hatred and there's too much of that in the world as it is. I enjoy the outdoors; hiking, camping, just sitting around a fire and chatting with people. Psychology and Criminology are interesting to me as is Anatomy, though I don't believe I could make careers of these. I love history, European in particular, because there's always something to be learned from others' past mistakes. I adore tattoos, colorful hair and all the funky fun things in life and I DREAM of traveling the world <3 I have lots of plans and I hope I get to at least half of them :D
Favorite Books:
I enjoy practically everything, but here's a list of some of my favorites anyway: The Morganville Vampires series by Rachel Caine, the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling, the Carpathian/Dark series by Christine Feehan, Looking For Alaska by John Green, the In Death series by J.D. Robb, Don't Breathe A Word by Holly Cupala, Bitter End by Jennifer Brown as well as her book titled Hate List, and Nineteen Minutes by Jodi Picoult. I love almost all poetry as well, but my favorites are: Emily Dickinson, Edgar Allen Poe, and Alan W. Jankowski (or as we know him, DirtyMartini) <3
I also have a couple favorite non-fiction pieces, all of which seem to be memoirs: Being Ana by Shani Raviv, Denial: A Memoir of Terror by Jessica Stern, and Night by Elie Wiesel.
Favorite Authors:
Shoot. Stephen King, James Patterson, Jodi Picoult, Jennifer Brown, Christine Feehan, Rachel Caine, J.K. Rowling, Tolkien, Charlaine Harris, Ellen Schreiber, Ellen Hopkins, Stephanie Meyer, Jay Asher (the wonderful author of the very controversial 13 Reasons Why), Sarah Dessen, Bella Forrest and Emily Dickinson.
Favorite Movies:
I like a lot of movies too, so I'll list some, but in no way are these all of them: I Am Malala, I Am Legend, Eat Pray Love, the Harry Potter series, the Hunger Games series, the Divergent series, The Green Mile, Priest, the Twilight series, 30 Days of Night, The Purge: Anarchy, World War Z, Saving Private Ryan, Flubber, Dead Poets Society, Blue is the Warmest Color, The Fault in our Stars, Kill Bill, Dirty Dancing, the Halloweentown series, Grease, Twisted & Twisted 2, Silence of the Lambs, The Color Purple, The Help, The Suicide Room, Suicide Squad, Fern Gully, The Secret of Nimh, Quest for Camelot, and Hidden Figures. As I said, there are MANY more, but you don't need a novel about my favorite movies :p
Favourite TV Shows:
Grey's Anatomy, The 100, The Shannara Chronicles, NCIS, Supernatural, the Barrett-Jackson car auctions, Counting Cars, The Rain, Lucifer, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, American Pickers, Bones, Friends, The Waltons, Best Bars in America, Unique Sweets, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Little House on the Prairie, Kitchen Nightmares, Chopped, Walker Texas Ranger, Wynonna Earp, The Rain, 13 Reasons Why, Iron Chef America and many, many more.
Favorite Music:
Classic Piano, Orchestra, Opera, Choral, Country, Rock of all types, Jazz, Pop and practically every other genre. I'll list a few favorite musicians and you can ask if you want to know who else I listen to: Beethoven, Debussy, Celtic Thunder, Hayley Westenra, Emilie Autumn, Ella Fitzgerald, Gretchen Wilson, Martina McBride, Rascal Flatts, Otep, Metallica, Iron Maiden, Queensryche, Simon & Garfunkel, Halestorm, Imagine Dragons, Linkin Park, Eminem, Twenty-One Pilots, Macklemore, Coldplay, Kesha, Lady Gaga, Evanescence, Nightwish, Lindsey Stirling, Korn, Slipknot, Manson, Christina Aguilera, My Chemical Romance, Andrew de Leon, Maroon 5, Pentatonix, Ciara, A7X, Jinjer, Demi Lovato, In This Moment, Beyonce, Skylar Grey, P!nk, BFMV, Neil Diamond, Alestorm, Queen, REO Speedwagon, Foreigner, Cyndi Lauper, Heart, Little Mix, Milck, BTS, Billie Eilish and Abney Park. I also like some YouTube artists, which you should check out: MikelWJ, Chevy Levett, TheSarahJade, Jonathan Young, Ashton Edminster, Faith Marie, Hey Violet and Amanda Lopiccolo.

Topic: Writing A Court Scene
Posted: 11 Aug 2017 02:31

Hey y'all. It's been a while since I was on here. I've recently started writing the sequel to my Tomorrow story. Philena is doing as well as can be expected in this sequel. I've written the first chapter which is quite a bit longer than I thought it would be and now am on to the second where I feel I must describe the legal process she is going through with Stepmonster, but I've never written anything of the sort.

I was wondering if any of you may know, whether from experience of being in a court room in one role or another or just from writing a lot of crime stories, the order in which one may go. Who will speak first? Will they try him for her mother's murder and all the abuse she's suffered in the one go or no? What kind of questions will they ask, both the prosecution (her side) and the defense (his side)?

As always, if there are any tips or extra details/info you can offer me, I certainly welcome it.

Thank you :)

~Aria

Topic: Why Do You Write?
Posted: 11 Aug 2017 02:15

I used to write to let all my emotions and thoughts out onto a page, figuring if they were here or on deviantART, they couldn't hurt me too bad.
Then I wrote strictly for awareness reasons on subjects such as eating disorders, depression, ptsd and various other disorders, not to mention diseases like the various cancers that are out there.
Now... I don't write often, but most of my writing pops out as a musing or a rant about something or other, though I am working on the sequel to Tomorrow right now. I have yet to decide whether to share it here. If ever I find it worthy of publishing, it should probably have never been publicly available, correct?
I still write for awareness occasionally and every once in a while I'll need to get out a few anxious thoughts, but most of my writing now is centered on a story I started previously.

Save Their Innocence: A Musing

“Somebody!” “Please!” “Please, somebody !” The screams fill my ears as I watch the news video play out. The gunshots punctuate every cry with a hollow shout. My heart beats like a hummingbird’s wings with the knowledge that if we do not fix this - if this just keeps going and we don't change something in our system - my nieces could have to worry about this when they go to school. When...

LDR Musing II: Andrew and I and Unemployment // Long Distance Sucks

Long Distance isn't romantic. It isn't hidden love letters and long visits with the knowledge you'll see them again in six months. Long distance is loving someone so much it hurts to be away from them. It's knowing that they're blushing or smiling or crying just by the tone of their silence - they don't even have to giggle or speak anymore, you just know. It's dreaming that they are there...

LDR Musing: Me and Andrew and Distance

I started this and realized I don't really know what I'm going to write... it's been a long, long time since I last wrote anything on here, so I guess this is just going to be a musing... maybe. It's been a little over three months since I stayed the night at a friend's house and we drove to pick up Andrew at the airport the next day. That day was amazing - like a dream come true. We...

Philena: So Tired

"Come here, 'Lena. Come over to your stepfather."  He beckons to me and I walk over, thinking maybe, just maybe, that day at the Zoo was a one-time thing. Maybe... maybe he wouldn't hurt me any more. Maybe he'd be a new Dad- not so much a replacement for Daddy, but a new one. Someone to keep his spot warm. "That's a good little girl. Come on."  He removes my pants and holds me...
