If I go to Heaven tomorrow,

can I look forward to greeting you there someday?

I couldn’t help but think about it this morning.

Not every day is guaranteed.

Despite good intentions and safety measures,

there’s no fool-proof way to guard your Earthly life.

Will I see you there?

I’m scared if not.

I’ll be safe, happy, and filled with eternal light.

If you go to the alternative…

My heart breaks at the thought of never seeing you again.

I won’t preach.

I won’t force my views.

But know that I love you.

And it’s that love that makes me fear for you.

I’ll be okay, no matter what.

But what about you?

If I go to Heaven tomorrow,

will I be able to embrace you and tell you this?

“Welcome home”?

What would life be like if I never existed?

The world wouldn’t care.

It would still keep functioning.

Time will go on like normal I suppose.

New children will be born.

Shouts of angry and joy will fill the air.

No one will notice if I’m not there.

Would life be better if I never existed?

It’s a depressing thought, but I can’t help but wonder.

People would be one burden short.

But then no one would hear me laugh.

There would be one less person to fret about.

But then no one would know how much I care about them.

Would anyone care if I never existed?



Not if they never knew me.

The children I loved and cared for will be loved and cared for by someone else.

My family won’t have to worry about budgeting for one more.

My friends will find their way to each other if it was meant to be.

And my beloved?



Would they love another?

Someone better?

Someone who would stop doubting themselves?



Stop.

Talk to them.

Get it straight.

Make your feelings known.

Because people will care!

Even if they never met you, they’re looking for you.

If they can’t find you, then what?

Don’t keep them waiting.

Keep going.

Guess what?! My e-book, "Cygnet" is now available for $2.99! This story is a romantic fantasy that features a maiden from a foggy mountain village named Lily and a Ravenhood prince named Noctis. This is not just their story, but the story of a princess and her other half and other characters who make strides in trying to find their own paths. I hope you guys enjoy the story! I wouldn't have been able to make this book a reality if it wasn't for the kick that my sister, Jami, gave me when she said "Stop making notes and just write it already!" and the support that was given to me by my parents and older brother, Jordan, who gave me the inspiration that I needed to keep going. Also, a special shout-out for my friend :icontotochan93:, who has gracefully helped me throughout the process as an editor and a great source for inspiration and ideas. Thank you very much and, again, I hope you enjoy the story!

Update: Here's my bookshop website that has more information about my book. Take a gander! my.bookbaby.com/book/cygnet

Hello again. I've been pretty interested in writing short stories lately, but I give up fast since they don't sound to good, and since your the most skilled writer I know on here I would like to ask. 

Do you think you could give a couple of tips for a beginner?

Thanks for the compliment. It means a lot. ^/////^

For starters, whenever I feel like I am going to burst from a certain emotion or thought (such as the longing to understand or be understood), I try to write down my feelings in a journal if I am not near a computer. Otherwise, I just type how I feel and let the art come out by itself.

I know that this will sound weird, but you can't force out great pieces of art just like you can't force yourself to be what you're not. If there is something within you that wants to express itself, let it flow out by itself. You can always edit later if you want to catch mistakes. But let it go.

I say this because while I was writing my ebook, sometimes I try to ram out an idea from my brain and just cause myself stress and the story suffered as a result. But once I let the story and the characters do their thing, it got better. Sometimes you even have to step back and think about WHY you are writing so you can gain a clearer picture of your goal.

Now for the more practical side, always keep a flash drive and journal/writing app handy. Store your writings in a place where you can keep track of them and NEVER throw away your notes. Even if you don't like them. They could be useful someday.

Also, my greatest biggie is to have a very reliable friend (preferably a bookworm) who will look at your papers and give you their completely honest opinion. Meaning they can't tell you that your work is great just because you are friends and they don't want to hurt your feelings. You can't grow that way. You need constructive criticism, ideas, and generally someone who has got your back. If they only make you feel bad and not help you out at all with your story, then find another trusted person. And make sure that there is a confidential rule between you that says that they can't use your material for their own usage unless you okay it. This is part of the reason for the flash drive and journal. If you record your notes/writings, it's proof that you wrote it first and it's your own work.

Finally, just be yourself and write what you are passionate about. There will be people who don't like your art. But there will also be people who are waiting to see your great art. Anything is possible. Just don't give up and keep working hard to improve yourself. Write about what you like. Read what you like and from authors you may admire. Attend writing workshops and take part in contests.

I hope this helps. ^^
