Playlist || How to be Invisible and Rule the World

Hey there Readers

Inspiration to write came to me this afternoon. After I almost gave up on writing my story the other day. I wanted to cry in frustration as I looked at the flat voice of my character sitting on the page before me. But I always make it back. Even when I feel I have lost all hope. All thanks to music.

Today I would like to share the songs that almost tell the story. These songs are a deep look into the characters, the plot, and over all reason of the story.

This song, as I have said before. Is practically how Inga feels. This song is so deep. And I love it so much. I just love it when a song will give a character voice.  

I’m wasted, losing time
I’m a foolish, fragile spine 
I want all that is not mine 
I want him but we’re not right

She is unhappy with her body. With her life. She is foolish in her action, in her time. Even when she is broken. She wants everything that is not hers. She feels she doesn't deserve anything. And she wan's him. But she knows that she will destroy him. (sorry that was deeeep)

Personal Blog || Journey Through my Deep

Hey Readers. 

I created this blog well before I started this one. But it was kind of just sitting there. It was kind of meant to be a journal. So I thought I would use it as that. It's kind of personal. Very deep. But I thought I might share it on here if any of you want to read it. I'm still in the state of constructing it. So sorry for the horrible formatting. 

This is still my main blog. And everything will still be posted here. I'm sorry for the lack of posting. An new post will be coming in a few days. (This blog is my BABY!)
That is all. Hope you all liked my last post about Inga.  I have been doing some writing. But I laptop is currently down... I'm not happy about that. So I have to use our Home PC. But that is hard to get on with so many people using it. Follow me on Instergram @Queenie_Rachy (think that is my user name...)

Love you all.

Inga Wandering || Interview and Profile

Hey Readers.

Time to meet one of my main characters, Inga Wandering from How to be Invisible and Rule the World. I thought I would just give them to you one by one.

Inga Wandering (Name means daughter of a warrior...)
Age: 16
Myers Briggs: INFJ
Personality: Quiet, reserved, sweet, and daring. 
Hobbies: Long boarding, poetry, cello, and geography. 
Distinguishing features: Her eyes, cause they tend to change colour. 
Physical appearance: Average height, fragile looking body. Dark hair that comes over her shoulder.   

Inga is one of my Main Characters. If I could say one thing about her, it would be that she is scared. Her heart is so guarded. But she has so much love to share... She is the trouble hider. She want's to hide herself from the world. She want's to hide all her problems. 

Here is a small interview with Inga. (Her name means daughter of a warrior...)

So Inga. Let's get this on a roll shall we...

Inga: *Sits down with arms folded.* This shouldn't take long should it?

No it shouldn't. I'm just going to ask you some questions.

Yes, yes. I know the drill.

I know you do. That's the whole point. First question. A movie you hate?

Easy. It would be the Note Book. 

It's not on my top list either. Why don't you like it?

It's not real. It's creating a fantasy in the minds of people of what love should look like. But it will never be like that. But the real reason why I hated it is, it broke my heart, and I will never be able to forgive it for that. 

Interesting observation. Next question. What is one thing that you want to do and not regret?

*Nervous laughter* I do nothing I'll regret.  

Your best friend, Cara. How did you meet her?

She started dating my cousin Danny. So we became friends fast. She kind of became one of us... she was able to handle it with passion.

That's cool. So, what about Gabriel?

Ha, I would rather not talk about him... He's crazy. 

Alrighty. I will take that as an answer. Thanks for answering the questions. 

Not problem...

That is Inga for you. Sorry it was not a very intersting Interview. There will be more at some point.

Five Facts about me: 

I will often narrate my life to myself in past tense. I don't know why... I just do. 

Pinterest is my FAVORITE social media platform. And I now have over 100 followers. (Follow me! I promise you will not be disappointed) I have just recently created some new boards, so check those out. (Link to my pinterest is on my side bar) 

I'm growing my hair out very long. It is now covering my chest. But my hair is very curly. So it's longer when it's straightened. #HairGoals 

I like sleeping....

And I am a coffee addict. I think I say that a lot. But I'm not drinking it as much as I use to. But I enjoy a good cup when I get one. :)

And that is all for today. :)

The struggles

Hey my beautiful readers.

And no, if you thought I was happy, you are dead wrong. I am struggling to find the smallest piece of positiveness in me.  Life is a roller-coaster at the moment. And it's kind of going everywhere.
Sorry I have not been blogging. I just physically couldn't. And it's pure luck that I can do this post. So here is a bit of an update on THINGS in the life of Rachel Day.

I haven't been writing. And that is very bad. But I have been getting to know my characters more and more. Just journaling about them. There are still my favorite piece of heaven at the moment. My babies. Though they can be annoying sometimes.

*Character Starts flattering the other character* Me screams "STOP IT!" 
*Character does something stupid.* Me "Did you really just do that???" 
*Character starts talking about stuff I had no idea about* Me "What the heck! Why did I not know about this?" 
Me *Start's crying* 

The struggles are real people. I signed myself up for this. I should have seen it coming. But I think all writers do that. Go into writing, so naive, so innocent, and really quite clueless to the task at hand. *Sighs* *Shakes head*
So after that. I am hoping to get some writing done soon. I have kind of put a deadline to How to be Invisible and Rule the World, I want to have it done by the 20th of July (My birthday) But we will see about that.

That is really it. Nothing special. Oh yeah, it's raining, and tomrrow I'm going to pick up this shirt/knited/sweatshirt thing I have wanted for so long. It's so cute, it has a panda face on it!!!

Why am I so Quiet?

Hey Readers.

One of my Intermediates asked me this yesterday. We were at a bowling alley, and I wasn't bowling, cause I didn't feel it a good idea in my condition. So I was sitting at the table with another leader who was not bowling on cause of an injury. Let me say the question from this year eight girl was pretty straight forward. "Why are you so quiet?" She asked. (This girl talks a lot too. Just to fill you in.)
It's a good question. In fact, It's been asked before.
I replied with "Aren't I always quiet?"

Some find this intriguing. The fact that I don't say all that much. Now I really don't know how to answer this question. I find it hard to understand myself. I am one of my greatest mysteries. Forever trying to decode myself. And it's hard work.
I was just thinking today how I manage to spend almost entire days without saying anything. My lips sealed. Sealing in all the noise and words that swirling around in my mind.

But here are some reasons why I'm so quiet:
  • I can hardly get a word in edgewise.
  • I feel as if no one wants to hear me speak. 
  • I'm shy 
  • I feel like it would be too stressful to add more noise to the massive amount of sound going on about me. 
  • I hear a lot more when I'm not talking. (I know all your secrets)
  • I'm probably in another world. That is why  I zone out a lot.
  • Sometimes, I just don't know what to say. 

I am working on my confidence. And I am getting better. Though in the end. Let us remember that action speak louder than words. Some people are loud and some people are quiet. That is the truth of it. Quiet people still have much to say. So let them talk sometimes. Thank you all for reading. I know I said I was going to do a character interview. I am still working on that. And I have been very busy lately.

Also! I passed my learners! So I am now a leaner driver... Yay. I don't really know how to feel about this though...
