At the start of the New Year, I recorded a small video for what was to be my first collaboration! The video (put together and uploaded by a wonderfully talented YouTuber Deanishes) was about what was on a small YouTubers top bucket list item for 2016. To see, click here: I added a video to a @YouTube playlist https://t.co/sD6csqn2tR Small Youtubers | BUCKET LIST COLLAB
Yep, my top bucket list item was to write a novel. But before this video was uploaded, I’ve done something unthinkable. I started writing the novel.
I’m not allowed to reveal it (under my own terms), but I can give away one hint: it is based on the fairytale Beauty and the Beast, which is one of my favourite fairytales.
I’m so excited about it, even though I have I only wrote five full chapters because I’m finally doing something that I love.
Sorry for the short post. I promise that I’ll update you when I can. Until then, keep dreaming and believing.
When I started my life as a Drama student, one of the first things I’ve learned is to be professional; in other words, no shouting, screaming and going crazy. However, one of the main things that I would love to do is interview celebrities in the performing arts and creative writing industries. I don’t know how to do this, as I imagine that getting through this process can be really difficult. I have looked on the Internet, but I don’t take in a lot of information because my brain doesn’t function properly (plus, I’m feeling really tired today).
Anyway, here are the people I would really love to interview, if I had any chance:
- Oli White
- Will Darbyshire
- Matthew Santoro
- Floppycats (I don’t know the woman’s name, though)
Performing Arts Industry
- James Corden
- Miranda Hart
- Daniel Radcliffe ] I’m a massive Harry Potter Fan
- Rupert Grint ]
- Emma Watson ]
- Tom Felton ]
- Sarah Jessica Parker
- Helena Bonham Carter
- Dame Judi Dench
- Kim Cattrall
- Renée Zellweger
- Cameron Diaz
- Leslie Mann
- Kerry Ellis
- Matt Smith
- David Tennant
- Julie Andrews
Authors and Writers
- J.K. Rowling
- Philippa Gregory
- Michael Morpurgo
Those are my dream interviews. I’m unsure whither they’ll happen but I would love too, even if it means communicating them, through a computer. These people really inspire me in my life and make my day when I feel blue or just simply feel bored. I do wish there’s a way, but I appreciate and understand the lives they have; I know there are very busy, so I know it’ll be a fifty/fifty or less of a chance.
Well, that’s all for now; I hope everyone has a good day/evening and I wish you all the best and good wishes.
God bless. 🙂
I am a big fan on books, but I must confess; I’m a bad reader. Sometimes, I leave books in the middle and don’t come back to them ever or after a few years. I guess, I’ve got too much stuff in my mind…
Anyway, I love to write and if I could, I can write all day. But, I have Drama school to think about and life is tricky. I am, at present, writing a book setting around the Tudor period. History is a great passion of mine and I love learning. In future, I would love to write books about:
- Romance – I would love to write a novel, based on my favourite love song. Or a real-life romance with fictional characters.
- Children’s adventures – Does Midge’s Tails count?
- Marie Antoinette
- A favourite landmark in London – a novel, with that landmark as a main point in the story.
- Tarzan – I know there’s been others, including Robin Maxwell’s novel, Jane. But I have a feeling that I want to try something knew on this one.
- A childhood character I admire – Not sure which one yet.
And the list goes on…
I may think about writing these ideas down in a notebook so I can treasure them in the near future. But, all I want to know is this; what books do you want to write about. I would love to hear and share your thoughts with you.
Until then, happy reading and god bless. 🙂
I’m so, so, so into Bridget Jones’ Diary. I really love the two films, starring Renée Zellweger, Hugh Grant and Colin Firth. However, I’m ashamed to say that I have never read the books; any of them. Grr!!!!! I keep meaning to, but with time, it’s been really hard.
And it so happens, I watched Edge of Reason with my cousin today. (God, it must have been the millionth time I’ve seen it.) I was so tucked into it; I love the story lines, the love triangles and Bridget Jones in general. I feel Bridget Jones and I have loads of things in common, apart from alcohol, and smoking habits, age and job occupations.
We always end up in very sticky situations and had to find ways to get over them. We always think we aren’t “prefect”. And social situations are completely embarrassing.
But I am sure everyone in the world share the same lifestyles as Bridget Jones. She is a gem and a rock!
So, next time, I’ll try to read Helen Fielding’s books and maybe try to be comfortable about myself. 🙂
I’ll leave you my favourite quote, said in the film by Bridget Jones:
It is a truth universally acknowledged that when one part of your life starts going okay, another falls spectacularly to pieces.
“Then without another word, he slowly shut the door”.
Miranda couldn’t believe it. She refused to believe it. Her Harry can’t be gone; he had just arrived.
The cold, silent hospital room did little to comfort her. Her baby, born three months premature and fighting for his life in an incubator is now in the hands of God. He was only a day old.
Throughout these past six months, Miranda had been on an emotional roller coaster. She and her fiancé, Michael had it all planned out; they even scheduled a full life plan. Have a baby, get married, have another baby and so on. However, all that changed when Miranda caught Michael having a liaison with an underage girl. The making out and the fighting still made Miranda’s spine shiver.
When she and Michael spilt up, Miranda went to live with her mother and step-father and has been with them to this day. What could she do? She had no where else to go.
As time went by, Miranda was moving on from Michael, while making preparations for the baby. But, her sudden high blood pressure and the cesarean birth came at a terrible price. Miranda was helpless as the doctors and nurses did their best to save both mother and baby. Sadly, it was not to be.
The doctor’s words were echoing around Miranda’s head; she could feel the pressure inside her brain, the tension, filling up her lungs and her heart spilt into two.
Then she lost it.
Miranda wailed and wailed. She couldn’t life like this anymore and wished to take her life so she can be with her newborn.
“Where’s my baby?” Miranda cried, but there was no answer.
Again, no reply.
“Where’s my child? Please, let me see my child. Oh, Lord, help me!”
