11 Random Facts About Me:
1. I began writing/planning the series I'm working on since November of the year 2009. That's 3 years and almost 2 months ago! Crazy, right!? (I was on 10th grade in high school. I began writing by accident!)
2. The first book I read on my own in the English language was 'Little Bee' by Chris Cleave. L.O.V.E.D. it!
3. I read H…

A Trip and Back

Image
My family loves going to Mexico!
I have...it's hard to count, hold on. I think...around 14 uncles and aunts. One of them usually goes to Mexico in December. Sometimes they go to Florida, to visit Grandpa, but only some.
Anyhow, they always bring back...CANDY! Among other things, like [stinky] cheese, which I love.

Here is what I [my family] got this year!




1-Beans! Why so special? Um, my uncle planted them, ha ha! They look amazing!

2-Papeletas [suckers] Four flavors! (a) tamarindo con chile [spicy tamarind]  (b) paletas de pollo [spicy suckers named 'chicken suckers'] (c) paletas de coca [coke suckers. PS: They have something like baking soda] (d) paletas de cajeta (caramel suckers).

3-Garbanzos [chickpeas] They are fresh! I better cook them soon.

4-More candy that doesn't have name! Ha! They are just in plastic bags because they were sold where they are made. ZAMORA!

5-Habas [lima beans] They are dried, added salt, and pepper. O.M.G! They are yummy!

6-Peanuts [cacah…

'Red Sky' by Daniel Luna

This post is titled after my friend Daniel Luna, who shared this pictures with me! I love them a lot. Good thing he allowed me to post them.

I couldn't believe this pictures when I saw them. It really took me by surprise, I have to say. Now, why are these picture so special to me? Well, first, they re amazing; second, they represent something I write about.

PS: Yes, that really is the place where my story takes place. The mountain has a name: Beata. And there are different legends of what lies under it. Some say a different city, some say a twin city to the city beside it: Zamora. And, if you're like me and know where each legend about it comes from...you're too real. Too much research from my part didn't help, in fact, with the fantasy side of the story.

Back story of what is in the pictures (according to my novel)...
A mountain: that mountain, my reader, is the mountain that sits on top of a city; the city where the White Zombies are trapped, hungry for freedom.
A falling…

TrueTwit is Spam

Why I will Block you and report you for SPAM (you read right) if I receive a DM like this: “____ uses TrueTwit validation service. To validate click here: ____” minutes/hours/days after I took the time to follow you.
Spam: When you use this service, it will send me a direct message with a link to click to confirm THAT I AM HUMAN, right after I follow you. There, does that sound like spam? I followed you to know more about you, to see what you tweet about, not to be followed back upon confirming that I am REAL. Clearly, SPAM.
First: I don’t want my DM to be filled with links—from people I followed—to CONFIRM what I am! Thank you very much.
Second: my DM is for private messages. How about you send a tweet, mentioning me, saying: “ARE YOU HUMAN? YOU FOLLOWED ME, I WANT TO FOLLOW BACK, BUT I’M TOO LAZY TO LOOK AT YOUR BIO OR RECENT TWEETS TO FIND OUT.”
Block: If I report you for spam, I will also block you. If you read Spam, then Block is just the extra step to protect myself from people like…
