L is for Lavender

L is for Lavender, for the Alphabet of Color challenge. I feel very French/Victorian. I think it’s the stripes and the ribbon around my neck (which I really, really love.)

Okay. You might think me weird, but for some reason I really, really like the picture below. I was attempting to take a picture of my hair, but I’d forgotten to zoom the camera out, so instead it only caught my neck and the ribbon. And it just… I don’t know. I like it.

Is it just me? Yeah… it probably is.

    No need to pressure yourself. Whatever happens with your writing, happens. Do it because you love it and hopefully good things follow.

    Did the person who plagiarized you (or the admin) ever write back? Is the story still up?

      I keep forgetting to update with plagiarist news. So I just checked, and she hasn’t taken it down yet. Nor have the site administrators responded to me.

    Have I ever told you about my obsession with stripes? Well let me tell you… it’s like you and your owls. 😀 If I see them, I need them! They’re just… so stripey!! 😀 😀 😀 I luuurve your ribbon! And anything Victorianesque is mahvelous to me! Aaah!! This is one of my favorite outfits of yours ever. In fact, if you wore owl earrings with it, it would be my absolute number one favorite outfit. Heehee.

    Is the title in reference to a blinking cursor on a writing document?

      Hehehe. I rather like stripes, too. But not as much as owls.
      Why thank you! I ended up taking off the ribbon after a few hours because it started to get itchy. But I really liked it. A lot. I might have to wear ribbons more often.

      Ten stars to you! 😀

    The only “training” you need to become a published writer comes from the books you read. After that, either you have the talent or you don’t. Creative writing classes and college might help, but they cannot make writers out of nothing.
