Here I am with Zakk Wylde and the crew!
They signed my Black Label Society skull tattoo and I just got Zakk's autograph tattoo'd.
I have now relocated to Saskatoon, almost a month ago actually. I moved here on January 25th, and I'm really digging it.
Living with my girlfriend is super rad, my new school is pretty great, and being a bit more independent feels really nice. I'm currently seeking a job, but besides that life is basically stress free.
With moving here, I've learned a lot and unfortunately one of those things is that music will be very difficult to make her, I am in an apartment building and also have a room mate. So, to avoid causing annoyances for the people surrounding me, I think it is best I take another break, and just continue on my writing hobby instead.
With that being said, I have begun a new story. I am not sure if this one is going to be published online any time soon, I have zero intentions of rushing through this. I began writing it today and have bigger things planned for this than any of my previous works I posted up last year.
My latest writing project was a bit different than anything I had ever imagined myself doing, and it was more of a practice run than anything. I was looking at criticism on a style I had never tried, and I got just that.
Thanks to the last two projects I've done in the past year, I've learned quite a bit and am considering all of the criticism that was given to me in my new project.
It will be another work of fiction of course, and will have a lot to learn inside of it, so I hope.
We'll see how it goes, I am very excited about it and cannot wait to keep writing.
To check out my latest writing project, click this link.
Please note that this story I am working on is NOTHING like the story I linked above.
EDIT: THIS IS THE FIRST CHAPTER OF THE NEW PROJECT ON WRITERSCAFE.
Note that I do NOT plan on updating this link chapter by chapter or anything for the time being, but may change my mind on that as time passes. As it stands, here is a teaser.
I recently finished my latest writing project, it is a fictional memoir of a man named Derek.
The memoir focuses on Derek's addiction to cocaine, and his addiction to his girlfriend, Elisabeth.
There are many tales told within, of drug abuse, relationships, alcoholism, and so on.
I can only say so much.
I'd appreciate it if it would be read and left criticism as well, I am beginning to pick up writing again and have finished two projects this year so far.
"There she was, off in the distance. A shadow, a silhouette. A figure unknown, unknown to everybody but me. I could just tell, I just knew, I had that feeling. The girl of my dreams, the love of my life.
She stood at the edge of the bridge's rails. She looked down, looked up. I couldn't see it, but I could feel it. A menacing grin, it felt evil. So unlike her.
She looked toward me, again, I couldn't see this, but I could feel it. Her eyes pierced through mine, into my brain. She'd stare at me the entire way down. She'd fall, staring at me. Not losing that eye contact. She'd hit the water, and she'd die. Floating away from me, further and further away. All I could do was stand there and watch her, the love of my life, my soul mate, my second half. I'd watch her float, and I'd never see her again."
The story / fictional memoir can be read here:
I finished my short story. If anybody wants to read it, it is hosted on these two websites:
The story is about a young man and woman who are in love, the girl (Cambrie) lives in an unhealthy environment and is abused by her father regularly. Terrence (the boy) would do anything in the world to make her life better, and this leads to a very strange thing happening to Terrence, in order to better the future of the girl he loves.
This might sound like a shitty romance story or something girly or some shit but it isn't. Give it a fair chance if you want.
I know it is not 2013 yet, but it may be a good time to start picking out some goals for yourself. I never have bothered with goals, but my girlfriend made goals for herself in 2012, and all of them have been accomplished.
I was thinking that perhaps it would be a good idea for me to start doing the same thing, it will give me something to strive for.
I haven't put much thought into it yet, but I am definitely going to think some things up come next month. I already have a few ideas.
On a different note, I have made some plans with music but I'm not certain I want to dedicate myself to any projects yet, I've been taking it really easy on music this year and kind of regret it, but I have started a short story last night, and it is going quite well so far. I am only one short chapter in, but I am going to try writing about a chapter a day or so, on the days where I have the free time.
I don't want to give anything away about it, just in case people on here would be interested in reading it, but it is going to be a good story providing a strong message. I am trying to use many things I have learned from reading throughout this year and put them in my own story. We'll see how it turns out I suppose.
I used to write a lot when I was a child, so it will be a good feeling to hop back into that habit.

Regarding my last news post, my girlfriend is NOT pregnant (thank goodness), it was just a pregnant scare, and all is well in that case. Her and I also fixed our problems and have agreed that drinking is what has caused most of them, her and I are both no longer drinking, if not for a long time, it is a temporary thing and we are so far sticking to it quite well, the last time we drank was last Tuesday, so we are at one week already!
I broke my knuckles on my right hand last Tuesday when we were drinking, the two of us got into some sort of argument, she said something like, "Just break up with me" or something along the lines of that, I got pissed off and punched a post on a metal fence, the post was made of concrete, surrounding a war memorial, so after hitting that twice as hard as I could, you can only imagine I fucked my hand up.
Well, I was drunk, and I realized the day after how stupid I have been lately while drunk, I smashed my iPhone, I broke three knuckles in my right hand (typing and writing sucks right now), it is time to take a bit of a break, besides, my girlfriend and I were on a two month bender from March to May, so it's about time we just take a break.
That two month bender ruined me for quite a while, I was doing some really stupid things, but it brought her and I together, so I can't regret it - She makes me happy, at the end of the day, everybody fights.
Well, aside from all of that, I am done school for the year starting on Friday, I failed one of my two classes, and am currently sitting at only a 39% in English, so I need to step my game up in that class for sure, I am really hoping for the best. I need to pass, we will see what happens. I started school at a very difficult time in my life, as I was addicted to drugs and was drinking every day, you can imagine that school would be a bit fucked up.
I am hoping though that I will pass English, and that one credit will be a good enough accomplishment until fall.
I will be spending my summer in Saskatoon this year, though I have a court date back home on the 16th of July, I hope for the best in that, and hopefully will be able to take my punishment in Saskatoon, as I will be living there for a few months during that time, if I can't take the punishment there, I am not sure what will happen. I also plan on finding a job out there during the summer so I can help my girlfriend pay rent, etc. I wish badly that I could stay out there afterword, but it seems unlikely. She had to move there for university, the city is only about two hours away, so her and I still see one another often, which is nice. She was just here for two weeks, or twelve days, something along the lines of that. I think fourteen, who knows?
Anyway, I am currently playing Max Payne 3 on the PS3, in my free time, as well as The Sims 3, if anybody is on Max Payne on PS3, shoot me an add on PSN, my ID is REDSiN66.
