Faceless


In every story that I’ve ever written, none of my characters have a face. I thought that I was the only one with this problem, but recently, one of my close friends and I were talking, and she informed me that when she wrote stories, she could never see their faces. I was shocked that she experienced that problem too.

It doesn’t matter whether it is a story in my head or a story on paper, I can never imagine their faces (with the exception of when one of my characters is an actor from a movie that I have just watched) The closest that I can get to their face is their hair, and sometimes not even that!

This is a random pic I found off of the internet;

That is how my characters look in my head, only the blur is just on the face.

Anyone else have a similer problem?

I’m Too Easily Influenced


Every night, I lie in bed and make up fantasies in my head. Sometimes, they turn into stories that I eventually write down. Others continually stay in my head and I make it into a little series, movie, or book, but just in my head. I have literally had a series going on in my head for several years straight. However, over time, I’ve put that series on that little shelf in my head and started a new series. My problem is that I am too easily influenced. My head creation can have changes, either major or minor, that effect my story based on other stories. For example, if I am watching a show where everyone talks with a british accent, then the characters in my head all suddenly talk british, even if they live in australia! Or if I watch a show with an actor that I really like, then my main character turns into that person. Most everything about her stays the same, except she looks like that person.

Another thing that I have noticed, is that a good majority of the stories in my head are based off of something else. When I was much younger, it was based on my favorite book series, “Encyclopedia Brown.” Another little adventure series was “The Justice League.” As I got older, those slowly went away. While I have had some originals, I seem to just find something that I love and make a spinoff series! Strange. 🙂

 

Love


She hid in her closet

She hated to fight

Shaking like a leaf

She knew this wasn’t right

 

The yelling scared her

His angry face hurt

She felt so ashamed

She felt like dirt

 

The closet door opened

She looked up at his face

With tears in her eyes

He sat beside her with grace

 

He touched her chin,

Still wet with tears,

Her mascara was ruined

Leaving a trail of smears

 

He used his thumb

To brush them away

And with the gentlest voice

She heard him say

 

“I love you”

It irritates me when people misuse the word, “Irony.”

2.

Literature.

Thank you dictionary.com 🙂
It really bothers me when people say, “That’s ironic” about something that isn’t really ironic!
