Hello To Anyone Who Actually Reads These Things!






I've decided to start a big @$$ project for myself, because I actually think it's something I could really do. I want to write a novel or novella (depending on how long it ends up being) about a young woman who moves to Los Angeles to become a writer and is failing, but through others and connections ends up getting sucked into Hollywood glamour and drama of sex, drugs, and rock and roll.

The story follows the protagonist Sam, neurotic but earnest, four years struggling and failing to be a professional writer is beginning to take its toll and wear her down. The situation however is entirely her own doing due to her perfectionist nature and shaky self-esteem, since none of her works feel 'finished' or 'good enough' to her, regardless of what others may say about it. Everything changes for her when her former best friend suddenly contacts her out of the blue.

The two were childhood friends who came to L.A. together to achieve their dreams of stardom, after which her companion Leah gained monumental success and popularity as a model three years prior. The two had not spoken since Leah's career took off, but now she wishes to rectify that and rekindle hers and Sam's friendship. Once a bright, exuberant woman with a sunny disposition, Leah's accomplishments lost their rewarding luster after she became victim to a dangerous and clever stalker. She spent the next three years living in fear until he was finally caught, and now the fragile and unbalanced woman is making an attempt to take back control of her life, starting with bringing her closest friend back into her life.

Leah then brings Sam into her world, and that's where the Hollywood frenzy begins. Being primarily propelled by the pair's friendship with an unabashedly popular three-man punk-rock band from Britain, the wild roller coaster of fame, paparazzi, wealth, glitz, glamour, manipulations, mind games, politics, romance, parties, and sexuality that is show business consumes her. And she starts to question and doubt all of her hard work leading up to this is what she truly wants.

... So yeah, that's the jist. No idea if it's interesting at all or too cliched, but I already have piles of ideas and really want to get them down. I at least want to try. :3

Purgatory






If you stare into the abyss,
It'll stare back, or so they say
But that's a lie, it won't just stare,
It pulls you in, drags you away

Down, down, down, this weight's pull on me
The bony hands, grip tight, their pull so heavy

Burn, burn, burn, these rays are fire
The softest down, or silk, it rips like barbed wire

I can't, stay up,
I can't, lie down,
Stuck in, limbo,
Inside, I drown,
No life or death
No beat in chest
Please grant my wish
To let me rest

Pound, pound, pound, agony goes on
Oh no treatment, no drug, will make this pain gone

Scream, scream, scream, and nobody hears
Slight rustling, pin drop, splitting through my ears

I can't, stay up,
I can't, lie down,
Stuck in, limbo,
Inside, I drown,
No life or death
No beat in chest
Please grant my wish
To let me rest

Wanna rip out my eyes
Just to make it go dark
Feel the devil inside
And he's making his mark
He won't take me to hell
It's worse here now I see
Now I'm an empty shell
Stuck in purgatory

I can't, stay up,
I can't, lie down,
Stuck in, limbo,
Inside, I drown,
No life or death
No beat in chest
Please grant my wish
To let me rest

I can't, stay up,
I can't, lie down,
Stuck in, limbo,
Inside, I drown,
I long for death
No tears to weep
Oh hear my prayer
To let me sleep
Purgatory
Was listening to 'O Death' a lot today and got inspired to put this together. Been a while since I finished something, and am pretty pleased with this one.
