A Final New Year's Message

In the coming 2014 year, I shall continue out my Dizzy writing through Tumblr, as well as start blogging from my new platform at Wordpress, at pariskimisawriter.wordpress.com. I love what I've achieved here on this blog, but right now I feel that the pace at which I need to run has picked up heavily-- time is fleeting as graduation from college finished and I'm heading in God knows where. I've mastered some tech-savvy skills at blogging from my Blogger platform, but I'm eager for a new taste of possibilities, and outlook.

I look forward to this new year, and what my new platform can achieve with it! Follow The Dizzy Writer here, and a Happy New Year!!

So Tonight I Got Home Late, Exhausted-- then I remembered "Moon River" exists in music box melody on Youtube.

I also stumbled upon this little musing of a quote:

stop for just one second.

think about all the people you’ve secretly had a crush on. all the people you’ve found attractive, but never said anything to. every stranger you’ve temporarily fallen in love with on public transportation. all the people you’ve dreamt of and thought of in the early mornings.

and now take a moment to realize that you have been this person for so many people… and you have no idea.

-- Tumblr user spookyphoque

Near-midnight intrigue of this though means one thing: Valentine's Day is approaching at work, and I'm starting to feel the sentimental affects of it.

Aren't strangers wonderful?

The Right Pen, Mightier in More Ways Than One

Late night writing. I cannot emphasize how much of a difference is made in the right pen when it comes to writing.
Any pencil feels unfinished; a cheap ballpoint pen gives you an uneasy hand. You struggle against the stiffness of the ballpoint, rather than working in unison to achieve what you want to write. Nowadays I always, always travel with 3 pens... 2 when one of them (soon) runs dry. The Pilot G-2. Pilot Precise V5, and lastly for fancier touches the American Crafters Metallic Gold Marker get my jobs done. Gold? Because there's just something about gold, is why.
For more tips on making sure you've got the "write" tools for writing, definitely check out this blog The Write Gear, in which you can really learn about the most reliable notebooks and pens to get you on the write track. Remember, writing is a passion, a process of being and relaying your genius to a paper-- it shouldn't feel stuffy.

Revising my first novel from high school, given the guidance of college workshops, is definitely a rewarding process.
