Beautiful People Link Up #7

”PAPERFURY”
Another link up for story characters! Again, I'm focusing on the main character of my current book I'm writing called Silent Thoughts. The second draft of this story is almost finished, with over 22,000 words so far!!!!!!!!!!!!

Visit the PaperFury blog to join the link up.


1. What is their secret desire?
To stop what happened to himself in his childhood from happening again. Though this desire is almost secret to even himself ( Taylor ).

2. What is the best and brightest moment they experience during the story? When He finds out what he's actually meant to do, and gives up his whole life for a better, scarier adventure. Taylor learns that sometimes it takes a while to realize what you actually want can be different than what you think you want.

3. What are the emotional places your characters are afraid to go to? Themselves. The past. The future. Sometimes it is just easier living now and forgetting what happened and what may happen.

4. Is there a place/city/room where they will never go? Why? No. Not really.

5. If they were permanently leaving town, what would they easily throw out? What would they refuse to part with? (Why?) As this actually happens, Taylor would easily throw out everything. Possessions mean nothing to him. It's people he can't leave behind.

6. What do they want (consciously and tangibly)? An easy life full of fun and adventure.

7. On the other hand: what do they need (on the emotional, subconscious level)? Something that will awaken him to the harsh reality of what life is like for others.

8. If they could change one thing about themselves, what would it be? His speach deffect... ( can't say too much without giving something away ;b ).

9. What is the most humiliating event of their life? (Slight Spoiler ) Something to do with the way he controls his speach / thoughts.

10. What things do they turn to when they need a bit of hope?His best friend Mashaki and the professor. Also, Hedley, another friend of his through out the course of the book. Taylor normally just forgets about it, though, and pushes whatever is bothering him, away.

  1. Ooh, interesting. I don't think I've ever read a story about a character with a speech defect.

    2. Hey, thanks for visiting my blog!!!! Yeah the speach deffect is one of my favorite themes in the book, and one of the most important too :)

  2. He sounds interesting. It would be neat to know his name and perhaps a picture though. ^ ^' I also think the speech defect is cool. I have a character who has one too. :)

Living Like The Amish: Interviews With Three "English" Families PART I

Many people are obsessed with the Amish.
I know at one time I was as well, and to a degree I still am.
But my perception  has changed with experience.

It started a long time ago when my family went to an Amish-held auction (no, it's not a place where you can buy Amish children, but a place where you can buy things from the Amish). I was eleven years old and enthralled to be surrounded by so many Amish. I loved the cockscomb flowers they sold everywhere. I bought a whole box for $2 and dried them for seeds so I could plant my own.
But then I experienced my first reality shock concerning the Amish.
I had assumed since they lived a simpler life everything about them was completely old-fashioned and natural.
Imagine my horror when I saw Amish walking around with soda cans and store-bought ice cream.

"Mom," I said. "He's drinking soda!" 


During my years living with the Amish I learned a lot about them. As individuals. As a culture. And about their history. Recently…

Inside The Land Of The Free

Hello.
My name is Greg. 
I have a lot of time to think. Too much time. Sometimes I think about my life - why I am sitting in prison. I wonder what I could have done different - my life plays before my eyes.
"If only..."
But even I know that no amount of good works would have stopped tyranny from finding fault with me.
It is cold.
My clothes are thin.
My stomach is empty - occasionally filled with food of no sustenance. 
I hide my face in my knees - as if that will somehow protect me from the horrors of this dark cold dungeon. 
They keep it cold to freeze me, this I know.
It is a part of their game - to drive a lesson into me.
As if I have a lesson to learn solely because I was convicted.
Convicted, but not  guilty.
Years. 
68 years for standing against injustice.
How many years have I sat in here?
I have forgot.
All I know is this question, "Was I fated for this? Did God grant my birth just so I could spend life as if dead?"
I cry out to God - does He hear me?
I do not know. I can no…

It Doesn't Take a Genius to Recognize Corruption

After attending the writer's conference I had the opportunity to spend a week with my dad in Las Vegas (we went to federal court trials).
I don't usually speak much of his work as I'm not sure all what to say about it. He keeps the public updated with what's happening in court, with all the many men locked up that he's trying to help out. I think he said there are like 19 guys right now that he is specifically trying to help release. 
{If any of you have heard of the Bundy Ranch Stand Off, you'll know a little of what he is doing}
I won't go into too much detail with his work. I will say if you want to know more of how to help out and learn what's going on just do some googling - my dad's name is John Lamb. You should be able to find plenty on him ;p
Anyways, I was quite shocked the first day.
Security didn't surprise me at all. Very much like an airport ;p  Except, most of the security was actually nicer ;) I was very pleased with security as far …

I'm Not Into Politics, But...

“Hey, did you hear what's happening with those guys in Oregon from Malheur Refuge?”
“No. Tell me about it!”
“A bunch of guys felt that their rights as US citizens were being violated, so they decided to take back a bit of land for the “people” as a sign to the federal government to back off, and now they are all facing years to life in prison for 'terrorism' and-” My words slow down as I see the person's face slowly becomes void of emotion. Bored? Or do they not like what I'm saying…? Have I just lost a friend? What did I say????




“Oh. Yeah.. I'm not really into politics.” They say.
“Oh, OK.” I say. But inside something feels wrong. Not into politics???
Hey, I hate politics. I despise them. So much stress, and fighting, and corruption. But… it's a part of life. Or is it???
What if I told you Fred's barn just burned down and we were going to go do some things to encourage him and help him out. Get some guys to rebuild it. Make him some meals. You, know, …
