When it comes to making a lasting impression during a first meeting, I find it challenging. As a writer, I become introverted and fully immerse myself in the creative process, which can make social situations difficult.
Lately, I have been considering writing another zombie thriller, but with a twist. Instead of the typical post-apocalyptic setting, I want to set the scene in a more savaged land, such as the Congo, and mix in privileged tourists to add an interesting dynamic.
For those who enjoy romance, I also have a teenage love story in mind. The plot centers around the tragic death of the protagonist’s father, who chokes on a piece of food known as greed. Meanwhile, a hotel owner and investor acquires a business that houses dangerous diseases and unleashes a deadly virus, adding a sense of urgency to the story. Despite these unsettling occurrences, spring break will still be enjoyable for young couples and fellow revelers.
The leading female in the story is not related to the father who dies a horrible death, but rather the girlfriend of the boy whose father passes away. As they get escorted to their hotel rooms, the scene is set for some spicy make-out scenes, dramatic scenes of jealousy, and a captivating plotline.
As a writer, I am excited to craft this story and hope it brings as much joy to others as it does to me. I possess a writer’s ego, which exudes confidence and sincerity, and I am open to writing in any genre as long as it encompasses a well-crafted plotline.
Recently, I watched the movie Bad Santa, and unfortunately, I didn’t enjoy it. While the character development was decent, the movie’s attempt at conveying important messages fell short and came across as unrealistic.
On a personal note, I have been doing a lot of cleaning up since Nyx passed away. It’s as if she took something from me, and I no longer feel weighed down. However, I find myself feeling depressed, which is strange. Shouldn’t the sense of relief be a good thing? Yet, I am managing to stay productive and continue writing.
I am looking forward to a much-needed break and will be heading to Oahu, Hawaii, on the 13th for a private wedding. I hope to distract myself from my sad vibes and come back with some tremendous stories to share.
Wishing you a great weekend.
