From Josh

I understood why she pushed me away, I just didn't agree with her. Never one to walk away from a challenge I made the decision for us both. She was mine and I sure as hell belonged to her. -Josh, Escape the Doubt

Random thought

I  music. It's my first passion & how my writing was born. Random fact... you will find one of my written songs in my debut novel about a time in my life I felt lost.

When I'm in a bad mood, music can remedy that. If I'm in a writing funk I can turn on my ipod & "feel" anything - the inspiration comes. Music is the ultimate healer to any emotion and also the trigger to any emotion (break up, los
s, love, happiness, fulfillment... etc.)

What is your favorite song right now that moves you? 

Mine~ Applause by Lady Gaga makes me Dance, Counting Stars by OneRepublic makes me sing at the top of my lungs, Demons by Imagine Dragons, I love Inscape or Bloodstream by Stateless, anything by The Neighbourhood. The list goes on and on.

Just a note

Well this is a slow tedious process, one I'm welcoming with open arms. I'm nearing the end of all my hard work on my debut novel and already writing Book 2 in the Shifting series. I'm ready to reveal the cover, release Chapter 1 and then *jumps up and down clapping like a girl excited* RELEASE the whole friggin book to you! Counting down the days. My release is set for November but look for it earlier. I'm anxious and impatient. ; )

Riley's definition of "Doubt"

Doubt- to be uncertain about; consider questionable or unlikely; hesitate to believe; to distrust; to fear; to be apprehensive about etc. OR as I call it ~ the bitch that fills my brain with demonic voices that make me crazy. -Riley, Escape the Doubt

Thought from Riley

Sometimes to escape the noise of haunting memories you need your best friends hand in your own to help erase the sound and fill you with a sense of peace, even if it’s temporary. -Riley, Escape the Doubt

Sunday Snippet

Escape the Doubt

Josh went to my bedroom while I grabbed a band-aid from the bathroom cabinet. When I step back into my room I find him standing by my dresser reading the poem I had written on my mirror with a sharpie.
The air I breathe is filled with his scent
The music speaks everything I meant
Meant to say but never did tell you
You haunt me where I lie alone without you
Feeling your touch as it vanishes away
My own heart is the one I betrayed
I just watch him for a moment. His tanned skin glistens from the sun filtering through my window. His lean muscles are gorgeous. He has his hand lifted and is tracing the lines along a heart I drew last night with his index finger.
 It is 2 broken halves, one is black and the other is red. It felt like my own heart, broken with half of it dead and unwilling to love, the other half alive and wanting to grab onto it forever.

Friday the 13th

It's Friday the 13th ~ maybe some wicked ideas will pop into my head to be written down as a genius twist in an upcoming novel. Maybe ;)
