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

Insomnia






Lights are too bright

Taps drip too loud

My tooth, it aches

My head, it pounds

Pillow’s gone flat

This bed is hell

The nicotine

The tobacco

I hate this smell

Sheets are crumpled

Mattress is crap

Oh god I’d kill

For a nightcap

The bar digs in

Digs in my back

My stomach growls

I need a snack

No food, of course

Always my luck

I bitch, but he

Won’t give a fuck

Crawl back in bed

His leg, it jerks

Stomach, side, back

No nothing works

My body aches

Head is hazy

Trouble is he

Thinks I’m lazy

Heavy eyelids

Refuse to fall

Want this over

Once and for all

Noisy neighbours,

And leaf-blowers

Screaming children,

And lawn mowers

By my window

Cuts like a knife

Day in day out

Fuck my life

Bull shit advice

Like ‘counting sheep’

The point being,

I just can’t sleep.
Insomnia
Yes I live! Please hold your applause.

Been discovering that I have insomnia recently. Wrote this in a sleep-deprived haze when I broke my record of FORTY-TWO hours without sleep today. As a result, more cursing than my poetry usually has. XP;


Poem is (c) to myself.
