Creative Corner Entry – Poem by Atharva, age 6

Beauty is…

Sun shining,
river flowing,
Birds singing
Flowers growing…

Beauty is nature
and Nature is beauty

to protect it
is our duty.

By Atharva M
at age 6

*Beautiful poem, Atharva! Thank you so much for sharing it with us!*

This song took me back in time…

Published in: on November 1, 2010 at 10:08 am  Comments (2)  

What kind of man do you like? :)

Quiz: You be the author. What kind of leading male would you choose as your hero?

 

 

1.  Your ideal hero will tell you he loves you…

A. Immediately. It’s love at first sight.

B. Oh, he’ll say it after a few months of dating perhaps. When he feels like we’ve gotten to know one another.

C.  Never. Guys don’t say the “L” word.

D.  It will most likely slip out during lovemaking.

E.  He won’t want to admit it, but he’ll say it soon after we’ve been together. He’ll have to make sure that I know.

 

 

2.  How long will he wait before moving things to the bedroom?

A. Uh…wait? Besides, who needs a bedroom?

B.  A few dates at the very least.

C. He’ll wait for as long as I need him to. He respects me enough to let me set the pace.

D. No waiting. He won’t take no for an answer and I won’t want him to.

E.  He needs me, but he’ll wait for me to feel comfortable first.

 

 

3.  He spends his free time…

A.  Helping others, taking care of loved ones.

B.  As an adrenaline junkie. He might be skydiving or drag racing.

C.  Drinking. Perhaps doing something borderline illegal.

D.  Working. There’s no free time. He won’t allow for that.

E.   Involved in hobbies. Probably some kind of sport, or fishing perhaps.

 

 

4.  He looks for a woman…

A.  With similar interests.

B.  A little on the wild side, someone not afraid to take risks, or maybe any woman with large breasts.

C.  He’s not looking.

D.  With no need for commitments. One-night-stands are a must. Of course, it’s not your fault if he can’t stop with just once.

E.  With a big heart and a bigger smile.

 

 

5.  He should dress in…

A.  Jeans and a tee shirt are fine.

B.  Business casual. A tight shirt to stretch across his wide chest isn’t a bad idea either.

C.  Some kind of sexy uniform, of course.

D.  He won’t care and it will show.

E.  Rocker clothes. How hot is leather!

 

 

6.  His endearment for you is…

A.  Sweetheart

B.  Gorgeous, Sexy, or Beautiful

C.  It keeps changing. Does he know my name?

D.  Honey or Baby

E.  Angel

 

 

7.  His career will involve…

A.  Law enforcement

B.  Business

C.  Well, I’m pretty sure he has a job. He always seems to have money.

D.  Communication

E.  Saving lives

 

 

8.  In my daydreams, I imagine he…

A.  Proposes

B.  Writes a love letter

C.  Makes love to me at work on my lunch break

D.  Tells me the secrets I know he keeps. I know they will reveal the truth about who he really is.

E.  Fights another man for me.

 

 

Scoring:

1. A=1, B=0, C=4, D=3, E=2

2. A=4, B=0, C=1, D=3, E=2

3. A=1, B=3, C=4, D=2, E=0

4. A=0, B=4, C=2, D=3, E=1

5. A=0, B=1, C=3, D=2, E=4

6. A=1, B=4, C=3, D=0, E=2

7. A=3, B=0, C=4, D=1, E=2

8. A=0, B=1, C=4, D=2, E=3

 

 

Results:

 

If you scored between 0-5, you want a leading hero that is Normal.

Huh? Normal? What’s that? Your leading man will be the type of guy to hold a 9 to 5 job with the American Dream on his agenda. He wants a beautiful home with a white picket fence with 2.5 children. He wants to take a family vacation every year. He is very steady, dependable and safe. Safe? For a novel? 🙂 Maybe…but, the leading lady may be far more captivating than her role counterpart.

 

 

If you scored between 6-12, you want a leading hero that is Sensitive.

This leading man will sweep you off your feet! He could fall in love on first sight and he won’t be afraid to admit it. He will woo you with poetic words and promises and he will mean them. His love lasts forever. You are the center of his universe and he will do anything for you. His love story will be epic, passionate, dramatic, something worthy of tears that will take your breath away.

 

 

If you scored between 13-19, you want a leading hero that is Tortured.

The tortured man will worm straight into a woman’s heart every single time. He’s the man that will die for you. He will sacrifice whatever it takes to keep you happy. But, there is something within him that needs a woman’s cure. It is eating him from the inside out and you just know that you could help him if only he would confess what’s in there hurting him so. The tortured hero makes the romance special because only the right woman can break him from his misery. Are you that woman?

 

 

If you scored between 20-26, you want a leading hero that is Tough.

The tough guy will act like he’s made of stone. He will show little to no emotion because he hides the real him buried very deep. This guy will never lose a fight. He fears nothing. He’ll face anything or anyone. The only weakness he has is you. He will do anything to protect you. He is the knight in shining armor ready to defend his lady single handedly against an entire army. If he dies fighting, he will consider it an honorable death as long as he keeps you safe.

 

 

If you scored between 27-32, you want a leading hero that is Bad.

The bad boy is as charismatic and alluring as he can be toxic for you. Women are naturally drawn to him…lots of women, but he wants you. You have to keep your guard up with this one. He’ll solicit you without pause, and you’ll say yes. His charm is potent. Will the bad boy change for you? Maybe. The trick is getting to his heart and landing cupid’s arrow before he gets away. It’s a gamble, but he’s worth it, don’t you think?

 

 

 

Okay, let’s have a small contest just for fun. Here’s what you need to do. Go to my website at http://www.destinybooze.com and read the blurbs, and/or excerpts for the books I have available. Which type of leading hero do you think the main characters resemble the most? Send me your answers to destinybooze@gmail.com and you could win a free .pdf copy of one of my books! Also, be sure to let me know what you scored on the quiz.

New addition to my creative corner!

Shattered

 

Those harsh words couldn’t have come from your gentle lips

We seem to bicker more than we kiss

Is there anything more shattering you could say

I give into it all as you walk away

 

You claim things have changed between you and me

Love is not a factor; and you ask “Can’t you see?”

My heart sinks deep and my ears won’t believe

When you answer my questions with “You should leave.”

 

I feel like a child scolded for being set in my ways

You stare down on me with your grown up gaze

I cant tell if it’s in anger that you push me away

Or if in fact you love me, and wish I would stay

 

Then you calmly utter words that you certainly know

Will deepen my hurt and force me to go

You say such love could never be true

As I give up everything to be with you

 

When my anger erupts you are mildly aware

That your words cut deep and my heart is bare

You lean over to me, sudden gentleness in your eyes

And say your sorry, but our love was all lies

 

I try to understand; I beg not to weap

My fear comes to surface; my trust goes in deep

Now left to question if I will believe it is true

And pray hate can replace my feelings for you

Have you heard this? Such a FUNNY song!

Pray For You
By: Jaron And The Long Road To Love

I havent been to church since I don’t remember when

Things were goin’ great ‘til they fell apart again

So I listened to the preacher as he told me what to do

He said you can’t go hatin’ others who have done wrong to you

Sometimes we get angry, but we must not condemn

Let the good Lord do His job and you just pray for them

I pray your brakes go out runnin’ down a hill

I pray a flowerpot falls from a window sill and knocks you in the head like I’d like to

I pray your birthday comes and nobody calls

I pray you’re flyin’ high when your engine stalls

I pray all your dreams never come true

Just know whereever you are honey, I pray for you

I’m really glad I found my way to church

‘Cause I’m already feelin’ better and I thank God for the words

Yeah I’m goin’ take the high road

And do what the preacher told me to do

You keep messin’ up and I’ll keep prayin’ for you

I pray your tire blows out at 110

I pray you pass out drunk with your best friend and wake up with his and her tattoos

I pray your brakes go out runnin’ down a hill

I pray a flowerpot falls from a window sill and knocks you in the head like I’d like to

I pray your birthday comes and nobody calls

I pray you’re flyin’ high when your engine stalls

I pray all your dreams never come true

Just know whereever you are, near or far, in your house or in your car,

wherever you are honey, I pray for you.

I pray for you
