Hey, everybody!!!

I just want to give a big, warm welcome to all my new followers!! I really appreciate and love you all for choosing to follow my blog!😊 You all are automatically awesome for following me!! If you want to know more about my blog, I have finally figured out how to create an ‘About’ page (just haven’t gotten around to figuring out how to put it in the control bar alone the top of the blog next to ‘Home’) and you can check it out by clicking here.

Anyway, this isn’t a story post. I have gotten several followers of late – of which I just LOVE!!! – and decided it would probably be prudent to do an index post giving a guide for everyone to all of my posts for ease of navigation and all that.

And I will be constantly updating this post whenever I do a new post! And this will be from now on the featured post on this blog.

So, to all my new followers who want to start from the beginning – or if you have been following me for a while and just want to read some of my posts and can’t find them or whatever – read on!

Demons

Scarlet moon

Prophesying doom

Barren landscape

As fears hold of you they take

 

The voices

The screaming

The shadows of the dead

They are my demons

 

Ones I have killed

 

They haunt me every day

They torment me all the time

Their voices, their last breath as I took their life…

Creating a big, black hole

 

One that can only go deeper, never to be filled

 

Blood is everywhere

It is dripping from my hands

Streaming from the walls

I will never be able to forget the atrocities I helped create


So, I was trying to capture the mind of a person who has killed, but doesn’t like killing. I thought it would be an interesting change to explore the regret and the how their victims haunt their conscious.

I will also be updating Overturned soon.

Have a great day/night!

Ecstasy

Holding your hand

Under the starry night

Never thought we’d get here

To this place in time

 

I never want time to continue

Just stop, freeze right now

So this won’t end

And I won’t have to let go of your hand

 

Don’t think about what’s coming

Just focus on the now

Where you’re here

And I’m not far away

Fighting on the front line

 

Just stay here

Don’t leave

Holding hands

Not letting go

Not until we have to

Cause I love you and I don’t want to go

The Liebster Award

I’ve been nominated for the Liebster Award by Shaheshal.

https://shaheshal.wordpress.com/2020/03/28/the-liebster-award/

Thank you Shaheshal! Go over and check out her blog – she’s an eccentric, funny, bubbly person that you’ll just love!

THE RULES:

  1. Thank the blogger(s) who nominated you
  2. Share 11 facts about yourself
  3. Answer the 11 questions the blogger(s) gave you
  4. Nominate 11 bloggers that deserve the reward
  5. Create 11 original questions for the nominees to answer
  6. Let them know they’ve been nominated

11 FACTS ABOUT ME:

I’m come from a family with 8 kids

I’ve been published

I’ll be glad when this whole Covid-19 thing is over

And I’m too buggered to think of anything else to share for this particular section. So, moving on.

SHAHESHAL’S QUESTIONS:

Is a hotdog a sandwich? Why or why not?

I guess it is – a sandwich is technically something placed inbetween two slices of bread that is then eaten, so I guess a hotdog counts as a sandwich? *shrugs*

 

What’s the most ridiculous fact you know?

That I can’t think of any answer to this question right at this moment, lol.

 

What is the funniest joke you know by heart?

Dammit! I did know one! And it was so good! And now I’ve forgotten it! *mutters things that are not fit to be printed*

 

How do you feel about putting broccoli on pizza?

That’s…LOL! That’s like normal in my life! I’ve grown up with broccoli on pizza and LOVE IT!!! Especially when the broccoli has been cooked in water for a certain length of time and it’s at JUST the right softness that just melts in your mouth when you take a bit – combined with a little cheese for the pizza that I snatched (though you didn’t hear that from me).

Which is why I so laugh at that scene in Inside Out when Disgust, Fear, Joy, Anger, and Sadness all recoil in visible disgust going “Ugh!” when they see a pizza with broccoli on it and one goes “Who puts broccoli on pizza!?” and Disgust walks off saying “That’s it – I’m done” and Anger rants about how San Fransisco has ruined pizza – as a broccoli-on-pizza lover, it’s a hilarious scene!

 

Who do you know that really reminds you of a character in a TV show or movie?

My father – he’s very much like someone in the 2017 movie Geostorm (though I shan’t reveal who for many reasons).

And last month, when looking through old photos of me and my family, I saw this old photo of one of my brothers and in that particular photo, he looked so much like James McAvoy, it was shocking! He doesn’t look anything like him now for several reasons, but back then, in that particular photo, he did.

 

What are some fun ways to answer everyday questions like “how’s it going” or “what do you do”?

Hmmm, I’ve never thought of actually doing that, but considering that a few of my friends online are Americans and they sometimes love to make cracks about Aussies (cause I’m an Aussie), I’m seriously going to think of some really funny things to say the next time they ask me ‘how’s it going?’

Anyway, as an Aussie, these are the things I’d say if I ever get the chance:

What do you do? My answer(s): Ride Kangaroos to school; send messages back and forth between my friends in Australia using kookaburras; and am training under the Avengers (but that’s all like top secret stuff – don’t let any Men in Black or spies know that).

How’s it going? My answer(s): Fair dinkum, mate; Well, I didn’t see my name in the ‘death’ section of the newspaper this morning (not that I really read the newspaper, but we’ll just ignore that).

 

What is your favorite thing to do when you’re bored?

Write or read. If neither of those are currently available, then I create inventive (I am NOT going to say unusual or weird) things to do/eat that are a lot of fun/very tasty (Yes, naysayers [i.e. certain members of my immediate family] the food I combine and create is extremely tasty if you’d bother to just try it instead of assuming it’s going to be bad and rambling on about how there’s ‘some things you don’t have to try’ [which in this case is just rubbish]).

 

Do you like to cook?

Mostly.

 

If it would suddenly start snowing in the summer what would be your reaction?

This:

ELSA, KNOCK IT OFF!

(Though, since I’ve never actually been in snow, nor actually seen any in real life [I’ve seen it plenty of times on the TV or computer, but that’s it] I’d be very curious and would probably play around in it like a bloody child)

 

Would you rather know the history of every object you touched or be able to talk to animals?

Talk to animals – hands down.

 

Would you rather have all traffic lights you approach be green or never have to stand in line again?

The latter – as the first would be extremely dangerous as everyone else would be approaching from all directions the traffic lights are in at the same time as me. It would be disaster if it was at this type of intersection:

Intersection (road) - Wikipedia

MY NOMINEES:

Anyone who wants to do it. Sorry, I’m just not up to thinking of nominees at the moment.

MY QUESTIONS FOR MY NOMINEES:

I’ll just pass along the questions I was asked.

Have a great day/night!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hustler Blogger Award

So, I saw this new blogger award out, and the blogger said that whoever read the post was nominated (as it’s a new award), so I decided to give it a go to support the blogger (partially due to the blogger being friends with my brother, who’s a blogger as well).

So, anyway, thank you Thony!

https://markanthonyswall.wordpress.com/2020/03/24/launching-the-hustler-blogger-award-mechanics-nominations/

THE RULES:

1. Make Sure to include this banner in your award post. You can make it the featured photo or you can just attach it along the blog post.

2. Be sure to give markanthonyswall.wordpress.com (the creator of this award) a pingback on your post, so he can read them

3. You can nominate numerous bloggers of your choice, but make sure it isn’t less than 5 people

4. Answer these questions :
° Why did you started a blog?

° What/who inspired you to do it?

° What motivates you to keep pushing and creating content and make your site alive?

° Who are your fave bloggers? And how do they urge you to grow as well?

° What lesson/s have you learned through your experience?

° Have blogging brought impact to you as a person? If yes, what are these?

° Not everyone are confident enough to start a blog. What advice can you give ’em?

° Give 3 facts about you as a blogger (strengths or flaws)

° Drop down your blog post which you are most proud of (together with the link so we can read it)

5. The person who’s being nominated, and who’s about to nominate can add one more question of his/her choice to his/her nominees. [your additional question here]

And here’s his explanation for this award:

You might as well ask why I added the ‘facts about yourself’ which can be strengths or flaws, the reason why I thought of that is because I want to point out something. Some of you may think, ‘oh they’re the best of the bests because they’re nominated for that award’. It’s not like that. I want everyone to know that nobody’s perfect in this game. The goal of this awarding is to inspire, not to make anyone envious about nothing.
Also there’s a link dropping along the awarding, because I truly want it to be a real spotlight for all of us. I want the posts which you are most proud of to be given love, and to be appreciated. You took effort for that, that post deserve recognition.
The fifth rule, is also a chance for the nominator to ask something extra to his/her nominees. I want everyone to have a chance to truly learn from others. Asking is knowledge, we all should know that.

Okay, let’s get on with it!

THE QUESTIONS:

° Why did you started a blog?

I actually answered this in my very first blog award post – along with several others afterwards, lol!

I started to be able to post stories as I couldn’t get my stories published via a traditional publisher. Now, of course, I later on discovered Kindle, where I can get self-published and for free, so publish my stories on there, but I do still post on here.

° What/who inspired you to do it?

My father was the one who actually gave me the idea.

° What motivates you to keep pushing and creating content and make your site alive?

My love of writing, the fact that some of my stories have actually touched some people, and God.

° Who are your fave bloggers? And how do they urge you to grow as well?

Look, I have a few who are my favourites – and they are also my closest friends on here – but I’d rather not name them as I love each and every one of you and I don’t want anyone to feel jealous or ignored or left out, you know? If I have a favourite person(s), I prefer to keep that to myself to avoid problems with other people who may/might find out.

But it’s not just my favourite bloggers that urge me to keep growing – it’s everyone. It’s my family (which includes my WordPress family [who are also my favourite bloggers]), God, everyone I meet and talk to online (yes, even the bad ones in some way inspire me to keeping going and growing, even if that’s not their intention); every single follower and every single like I receive to my posts – it all inspires me to keep growing.

° What lesson/s have you learned through your experience?

Don’t follow along with everyone’s advice as that bogs you down; just post for yourself and God and don’t worry about what everyone else thinks; and that self-promotion doesn’t work – I’ve tried and immediately the views and all that dwindled down. I’ve found if I just leave it all in God’s hands, I get a lot of views and followers, but when I tried to step in, compromising my faith in God’s ability, it really dwindled. The views and such are more now than what they dropped down to, but never as much as it used to be.

So the big lesson I learnt: NEVER INTERFERE WITH WHAT GOD’S DOING. JUST TRUST HIM!!!

° Have blogging brought impact to you as a person? If yes, what are these?

Yes, it has. It’s made me confident in my writing abilities, and while before I started blogging I was the extrovert of my immediate family compared to all my siblings, blogging helped me a DEFINITE extrovert, lol.

Plus, it’s helped by providing an outlet for myself, which we all needed.

° Not everyone are confident enough to start a blog. What advice can you give ’em?

Trust God and don’t worry about the amount of views, followers, likes, etc., you get – just trust God to bring along the ones He wants and just post the content that YOU like, that makes YOU happy. Don’t bow down to the whim of others (i.e. – the ones who try to tell you what you should and should not do). Just post what YOU want, and you’re off to an awesome start.

° Give 3 facts about you as a blogger (strengths or flaws)

When she proved that modesty is overrated: | Mary poppins movie ...

I’m sorry – did you just say ‘flaws’?

How dare you.

° Drop down your blog post which you are most proud of (together with the link so we can read it)

Well, I’m proud of all of my work, so I really can’t think of one, so I’ll have to go with ‘Most special’, which these ones are probably the most special to me:

Little People – because of how it was inspired.

KIDS!! – because…well, you’ll instantly see why when you go and read it.

The Irony of Love – because…well, that’s explained at the end of the post in an author’s note.

A Glorious Mess

MY NOMINEES:

Truth

Brother’s Campfire

I have to pass along the questions I was asked but I also have to add one more at the end (which you all have to do as well if you choose to do it), so here’s the extra question:

Are you the type to take the situation by the horns or wait for someone else to do it?

Have a great day/night!

Overturned – Chapter 6

Sorry for the long delay! Things have been hectic and full-on in my life lately. But here’s the next chapter!


“Mia, wait!”

Not on your life! Mia thought as she stormed out of the restaurant.

“Mia, come on!”

Mia whirled around, not caring that any of the passerbys could hear her. “Why should I wait for you, Charlie? I waited for you to come back for a long time when you left me! I’m not going to wait for you anymore!” And without, Mia spun around on her heel, hot tears burning her cheeks.

A hand grabbed her arm, yanking her to a stop.

“I’m not trying to aggravate you-”

“Yeah, well, you’re doing a damn sucky job of that!” Mia shouted, trying to pull her arm out of his grasp.

“Listen!” he shouted and Mia actually fell silent at the shock of hearing him raise his voice. He had never raised his voice to her – not even when she practically threw her entire bookshelf at him three years ago when he announced those ugly, fateful words. She was suddenly aware of peoples eyes on them as Charlie continued in a quieter, even, but still authoritative voice that she had seen make Charlie’s own father cower. “I’m the new cook, so sweetheart,” he practically spat that word out, “that means we’re going to be working together whether you like it or not! The only way we’re going to get your father’s restaurant back to the glorious thing it used to be is IF you. Work. With. Me. Got it?”

Mia was finally able to yank her arm free and gave him a weighty glare before spitting at his feet. “You’re still a butthead,” she grumbled and turned and marched away, steam boiling off of her face.

Oh DARE that…that pigheaded, no-good jer-

“WATCH OUT!”

Mia suddenly found herself tangled in someone else’s limbs as she and whoever she was tangled with hit the pavement.

“Oh, I’m so-”

She trailed off as she realised who it was.

So Handsome I Could Drool Business Suit.

“Well,” he chuckled and she felt her knees wobbling – and not from the nasty fall she had just taken, “fancy bumping into you again.”

Mia laughed. “You’re good,” she said. “And so-” Whoa! Was I about to call him breathtaking?

His eyes narrowed in amusement and suspicion about what she had stopped herself from saying and then stood up, holding out his hand to help her up. Blushing, she reached out and took his hand, involuntarily shivering in delight at the contact with his skin – and then kicking herself because he most likely felt that.

“I’m just going out to get some coffee. Since you’re here,” he said, “would you like to come with me?”

Suddenly Mia forgot how to even think.

Uh….


Again, I’m so sorry for the delay.

Out of the Flames

It pushes me down

I try to fight – it’s impossible

The snears

The fears

It swamps me so that I drown

 

And you…where are you?

Or are you gone, too

Joining the taunters

The ones that scream “You’re a monster!”

 

Have you finally realised

That all my baggage

Is too much, keeping you tied

You hold me down

Is what you say

When the voices in my head are screaming

Begging for peace

I can’t take this

I’ll see you another day

 

And with those words, the suffocating starts

Your promises, loving embrace – all a thing of the past

One, two, three

I’m falling

Tumbling

Like a tree down a ravine

 

Water swamps my lungs

Fire sears my heart

As my trauma – everything

Rips its way out

 

I crack

Like fragile glass

As your hand I need, but lack

Is only throwing rocks at me as you pass

 

ENOUGH!!!

That’s it

I won’t be pushed

I won’t be kicked

I don’t need you; I won’t be tricked

 

This is me

It’s who I am

If you can’t take that

Then get out of my way

 

I won’t apologise

I’m punching my way out of the flames

You did one good thing, and that is

You went away

Ticking Away

Ticking away

Every second

As I watch you whittle away

 

I know you’ll get better

I feel it in my bones

But it’s just hard

Watching you until then

 

I’ll always be here for you

You can bet on it

But all I’m asking of up above:

Help me to stay strong

The Irony of Love

This story is an allegory.


There was once a little boy who was about 7. He was a very cute and chatty boy, who could be quite affectionate when he wanted to be, but mainly preferred not to get all mushy. He would run around and play and draw pictures and write cute superhero stories and just be a light in everyone’s life.

Then one day, he started having turns – i.e., going stiff, and shivering, and becoming temporarily unaware of everything and everyone around him.

At first, his family thought it was epilepsy.

It would occur generally at night, but it didn’t affect him – he was still his opinionated, outgoing, talky self.

When the family took him to see the doctors, the doctors said that it wasn’t epilepsy, but just night terrors.

A while after that, he suddenly started having trouble walking – he would be a bit wobbly on his feet and stumble around.

Then he suddenly lost his ability to talk properly – he could say words like ‘no’, ‘yes’, or ‘I want’, but he had to generally rely on pointing or writing down what he meant to communicate properly. He could read, but suddenly had trouble saying the words.

Then he could barely walk. He lost all muscle control – he had trouble gripping things, walking, etc., and his family had to help him move around. He soon had to just mainly sit around, unable to go anyway very much. He became, understandably, very depressed and angry. That, plus what the boy had, caused a great strain on his family.

Then one day, he met someone.

This someone was a man. This man was very friendly and soon became like a second father to him. The man would sit and play and read stories and was very patient, like the rest of the boy’s family. This man was a light to the boy and to the rest of the boy’s family. They all liked him and enjoyed spending time with him and soon afterwards, it helped not only the boy but also the family cope with it all.

One day, the man was taking the boy out, pushing him in a wheelchair, and they were having fun exploring town when suddenly some people came and viciously attacked the man, beating him. The boy screamed and cried out, trying to tell them to go away, but he couldn’t say the words nor could he move.

He could only watch.

Finally, the people stopped attacking the man and left. The man went over to the boy and gave him a hug. “It’s alright,” the man said. “This happens to me a lot.”

“W…” the boy strained to say the words. “W…why?”

The man gave him a warm smile, tears of affection starting to pool in his eyes. “Because I’m love,” the man replied. “And some people hate love.”

“I…I…” the boy’s mouth moved silently as he tried to figure out a way to say it, “I…w…won’t…ssss-stop…l…loving…y…you…”

The man wrapped him up in a bear hug. “And I you.”


This story came to me after a friend of mine made an innocent remark today how some people for some reason just hate love (my friend and I had been chatting about Olaf in Disney’s Frozen movies, and trying to figure out why some people absolutely hate the snowman).

I have a younger brother (who ISN’T the age in this story) who has this disorder or disease (I’m not sure exactly which one, to be honest) that the boy in this story has, and we’re talking him to see a doctor in a couple days (our time) to find out what’s going on and how best to treat it and such and I’m wondering if you all could pray for my brother and for his complete healing and for God/Yah to lead and guide and direct the doctor’s and show them what’s wrong and how to fix it? And maybe share it with your friends and family and ask them to pray for my brother as well?

Thank you.

Enjoy!


She reached behind her and pulled an arrow out of her quiver. Notching her bow, she pulled back until the butt of her arrow was touching the side of her cheek.

The crisp morning air nipped her cheeks as she stared at her target as it bent its head to nibble at the clumps of grass.

Quickly calculating the distance, the speed of the wind, and the angle with which she would have to shoot in a split second, she – without even having to think about it – released the arrow.

The arrow shot cleanly through the air.

Penetrated her target.

The target dropped.

She strode over to it and knelt down.

Pressed her fingers to it’s neck.

No pulse.

She pulled out the arrow and checked it’s tip. Still good to use, she thought as she put it back in her quiver, going to clean it later when she was back at camp. Slinging the deer over her shoulders, she turned and strode back to camp.

She knew that she was lucky to find a deer.

Cause that virus practically wiped out all the animals.

Same with all the humans.
