How do you guys do it?

How do you guys write 20,000+ words and make them into amazing stories?

 I don't get it. I don't think I've ever even gotten close to that many words. 

Teach me your ways. 

I was gonna write more. This was going to be an articulate post about how I'm writing my friend a story and only just reached 5 thousand words. It was like 11 pages long and i felt a bit proud until i saw the word count. It's crazy because i'm kind of in a lull. Uhhhhh.... I'm gonna post a bit of it to fill this up.  

I write stories for my friends so I can make them happy. )

A better love deserving of...

I haven't written a peterick in a while so I decided to start one. I'm not finished yet but so far it's a Patrick/Gerard high school party fic which goes off into Patrick/Pete. It's gonna be based off of Panic! At The Disco's "Lying is the most fun..." because, well, you can easily write a fic off of that song. I've only written a few paragraphs and hopefully I'll finish this soon. :)

Sweetie, You Had Me. )

Why does LJ seem dead?

People need to get back on and feed my need for wonderful bandom fanfics bring beautiful life to my flist. I, too, am guilty of not updating my journal so I'm going to change that today! 

Did you know that two days ago, I heard Heaven Help Us by My Chemical Romance in its entirety? I kind of kicked myself after I finished it because it's a beautiful song. like REALLY pretty. Gerard's voice sounds angelic to me which isn't how I would categorize his voice any other time. ANYWAYS... once I find a song I like, I play it over and over again until some other song comes along. So this post only serves for lyrics that I love in this song. (You're probably just shaking your head because you know the lyrics like you know the back of your hand but humor me. :)
  • I'm at this old hotel but I can't tell if I've been screaming or sleeping or screaming or waiting for the man to call
  • I've been sprawled on these cathedral steps while spitting out the blood and screaming "Someone save us!"
  • And will you pray for me? 
  • Cover me in gasoline.
  • Wipe away those tears of blood away.
  • How the misery begins.
Those aren't a lot but these stood out to me and when lyrics stand out to me, it usually means that some way, some how, I'm going to use them in a story. Naturally, the story the lyrics paint out in my head is a 1920's Mobster!Frikey fic. Or something along the lines of hired killers. I mean, think about it. I would write out the plot but it's nearing 2am, I'm watching Archer on Netflix, and my mind is wandering. Expect the plot in a few hours. :D

30 Day fan fiction meme

Doing another challenge because my LJ is lacking on updates. I've been meaning to do this one for a while but I haven't had the time. I dropped studying for a test to do this. Yay for Senior year! 
30 days done in one.  )

I don't think I should ever be a mother.

  • My kid will be hearing Fall Out Boy when it’s in the womb.
  • I’ll be reading Fan-fiction for their bedtime story.
  • Concerts would be like family outings.
  • They aren’t going to memorize vocab words, they’re gonna memorize Pete’s lyrics.
  • After homework, they have to write one chapter of any fandom fic they want.
  • Math homework? Hell no. 
  • No cartoons unless it’s good ‘ol classic 90’s shows
  • I’m seriously considering naming my boy “Alexander” because I’m in a spanish family and if I ever need to call his name, I’ll play Lady Gaga’s ‘Alejandro’.
  • For a girl, It might be ‘Stacy’ just for Fountains of Wayne’s “Stacy’s Mom.” 

Oh god, they’re gonna hate me when they grow up. (Yay! Frank Iero is a daddy to a baby boy today! :D)

Because you can never get tired of seeing this.

Have I ever told you guys how I really love Three Cheers and kind of hated the fact The Black Parade Is Dead! was a short [The Black Parade setlist] concert? No? Well, all of that is true which is why I'm posting the VENGANZA concert up here for my viewing pleasure. And yours.

It's a post about feelings... yay.

I don't know what I'm doing. I should be writing essays for scholarships or getting my shit together for school but no. I'm just sitting on my parents bed on the internet feeling bad about myself. Whoop-de-doo. What else is new?

So it seems I have enough creativity to make up a post that nobody really gives to fucks about but not enough creativity to tell an internship how technology influences my life, how I'm a role model in my community or to finish this fucking chapter of a fic I'm writing. It's sad, isn't it?

i know the pity party gets old but I just wanted to spill my thoughts because my chest was heavy and I haven't posted anything to livejournal in a while. :/

Es que yo no sirvo....

Posting a snippet of this fic that I really wanted to do something with but when I started writing the idea went to hell. It was for the [ profile] mcr_bingo prompt 'Artist: Patrick Stump' and I wanted to do a Gerard/Patrick where Gee is listening to Patrick's new album and is reliving their summer together, (Summer of Like) and may or may not jerk off to Patrick's amazing voice. That's what I wanted to do but I didn't see myself following that path. Posting it here because my LJ seems empty. 

By the by, the journal title is in spanish. YAY for hispanic heritage! )

I thought we should switch it up this time around. I'm already making them a copy of the friends mixtape as my Christmas gift. 

Christmas Assignments: All due before xmas break.

Patrick Stump @ Webster Hall. 11/16/11 tl;dr

I'm going to try my very best to explain this concert in detail, from when I got out of school to when I got out of the venue. One of the best nights and concerts I've ever experienced. And I shall tell you why in a few paragraphs in rushed fan girl language. Bear with me. :) (Videos aren’t mine but if you look for me, you can find me! Photos will link back to my facebook.)

My time outside )

Inside the venue... )

Patrick's AMAZING set. <3 )
All in all, November 16th was an amazing day that I will remember.

If i’m ever in a slasher movie situation…

and i’m already on the verge of death, I want to see who the killer is. I don’t want my last words to be “don’t kill me” while the killer is hovering above me. I want them to be my case to see the killer’s face. I reserve the right to know who is killing me and maybe know the reason why. I can settle for taking the mask off of his or hers face like Drew Barrymore in Scream.

Hey, who says the last victim (who ultimately are saved) gets to know the person who is tormenting them. I need a face and a reason, damn it! There’s a reason why the killer is killing people and they should tell the victims before their last gasp of air.

I’m just saying. (2am thoughts)

Who am I kidding?

I'm not a writer. I finally figured it out. I'm not good enough. I know this but I know I won't stop. I'll beat myself to the ground with my doubt and low self esteem but I won't stop. At least not forever.

Question is: I know that i'm not good at writing, then what am I going to do in college? *sigh*
