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.

Topic What's YOUR Phobia?
Posted 18 Dec 2015 00:59

Claustrophobia - fear of confined spaces
Hydrophobia - fear of water
Telephobia - fear of answering the phone or calling someone on the phone (usually seen in cases of social anxiety)

I'm also rather scared of spiders, snakes, and other various insects/etc, but I do not have an actual PHOBIA of them. My fear of water is extreme- I can get in the shallow end of the pool, but that's about it, and forget about lakes and ocean water. The phone one makes my job rather stressful and getting a different job quite difficult as, while I CAN answer the phone, it's freaking terrifying. Claustrophobia is rather normal in my family and mine's not too bad. My grandma doesn't like elevators while I can tolerate them. I couldn't do closets or- as much as I want one for my bed- a coffin bed that closed, but other than that... meh.

I think I would definitely collect interesting shaped bottles if I could as well as anything vintage/victorian and such. Like, I really want a skull bottle. Um, anything skull-shaped. Um, really anything Gothic too.

Currently, I do collect pins, lol. Like... on pinterest, haha: My Pinterest

Topic Collections
Posted 09 Aug 2015 16:04

I don't believe I really have a collection.. I mean, maybe baking stuff. Like, the pans and such I have a lot of odd bits and pieces for the kitchen, but I'm working on starting up collecting stuff for my "darker" side. Little bats and adorable ghosts and such. Um, Gothic/Halloween themed scary stuff. Currently, I collect knowledge. :) So any tips and tricks you can give me is very much appreciated and loved. Stuff to do with sewing would be QUITE helpful right now.

Yeah...

Ya know, I love Taylor and all, but this version is so much better. I dunno. Girls are always singing about the cheating boyfriend, I like when it gets flipped around.

Topic Hot dogs?
Posted 04 Aug 2015 01:14

I don't really like hot dogs, so when I do eat them, I have the all-beef ones by Hebrew National with a little dill relish and spicy mustard, or I'll have a German Nachwurst with sauerkraut.

This band has some truly enchanting tunes. This is one of them. The singer is Tarja, you will find some that are newer with Anette, but she's got a much more... pop-like voice. Personally, I prefer their older stuff involving Tarja and Tuomas. They had an operatic metal vibe goin'. They are listed as Symphonic Power Metal... whatever the hell power metal is. Listen and enjoy. I am :)
