_ When the writer repeats something over and over and over, I wana yell, “I got it! Move on!”
When the writer describes or uses terms that their character would have no reference to, and doesn’t correlate to the character's background or view of the world around them.
The writer describes a character as super smart and they seem as dumb as a rock.
A character who over analyzes and monologues in exhausting rhetoric about their thoughts and beliefs. Again I wana yell, “Get on with it!”
I hate it when I can figure out how the plot will be resolved before I hit the halfway mark.
I just hate that.
So what irritates you when you read a book?
And when a cover doesn't match the characters in the book. It's like, really you're (the publisher) that lazy you can't even bother to read your author's book? Really? Because how else could they have gotten it wrong if the main character is a blond and they put a brunette on the cover. So irritating...
I started organizing the next book. I've written sections of it already but I'm trying to decide where to end it...
And I'm trying to decide if I should chop it up and make them into novellas.
Did everyone see that study on Parabens?
Essentially all breast tissue taken from cancer patients was loaded down with Parabens-they aren't saying it causes the cancer yet-but you be the judge.
Please play it safe and trash everything that has them in it. Thankfully only my conditioner and shampoo had it-but check everything. Deodorant, lotions, soaps, even toothpaste. I had a lotion from Bath and Body Works that had it, too. Another article for your information.
Hey, I also found some of my make up had it-check everything.
but it is sooo funny, I was crying
Now for a little mind tickling fun.
Back in February of 1955 on Holloman Air Force Base, California, it is believed by Ufologists, a meeting had taken place between President Eisenhower and extraterrestrials.
Here is testimony of a man who was on the air base at the time. (It is a 55 minute video)
_It is reported Eisenhower met with several different extraterrestrial races at several different points during his presidency.
The first alien race (Nordic) warned us not to engage with dealings with the other alien races and to disarm our nuclear arsenal, which was never going to happen because this was the height of the arms race with Russia.
Then, according to some reports, the next race (Zetas or Gray aliens) made a deal with us where they exchange technology and we provide a limited amount of people for their "research".
It was quickly discovered they deviated greatly from the deal, and there was little the government could do to stop them.
Here is a detailed paper done on the meeting Eisenhower's secret meeting with extraterrestrials
It is also believed we were warned to not venture beyond our atmosphere which is why we never returned to the moon, or explored, by man, beyond.
President Dwight Eisenhower's Farewell Address to the nation January 17, 1961 and warning...
_Many to this day wonder at the warning he was implying.
In Fathis: Birth of a Falcon I use this "military industrial complex" as the ultimate evil doers of earths' humanity during the Breaking.
The speech that probably got Kennedy killed.
_Kennedy sounds angry, doesn't he? It was rumored he was going to disclose to the public about extraterrestrials and the deal we made with them.
Here is a good Time line of UFO conspiracy
Now, I am not saying any of this is true or accurate, but something worth thinking about.
So on New Years Day Obama signed a bill allowing the US military to hold US residents without due processes and as long as they like-and with torture no less.
He better win, or we're in real trouble
_ I’ll admit it. I’m a Luddite to a point. I was probably the last person on the planet to get a cell phone. I think it was 2007? I think. I don’t use it that often. And I still don’t have a facebook page, or any of that crap. And I suck at texting. Takes me too damn long to punch out a single word, too annoying. But I’d die without my puter. SO there!
But people who know me, and know what I do for a living, would just crack up to hear I’m a bit of a Luddite. Considering I work with some of the latest greatest computer programs out there in my field, and also considering how quickly I pick this stuff up. This website is an enormous leap for me, but I figured there would be questions about this Fathis world. And it kind of gets it out of my head, and makes it clearer.
In Fathis: Birth of a Falcon I have it so that technology is so far advanced that it is in the background of their daily lives. Unlike now, how it is in the foreground of everyone’s life. There are no separate components or programs. The only thing separate is the teams’ wrist monitor, and that is only because they go off planet for missions. People use ear buds as phones but it works off of a central global main frame which is also their data storage, television, news source, mail, web browser, libraries of all types, and so on. Everyone has access to it worldwide. No one has control of it. It’s too big.
Once the Breaking happened, humanity plunged into the dark ages for a short time, until we came together. Then with our combined, now powerful minds, our technology exploded. It was more controlled this time, with a design in mind that would make it more nature friendly considering these post-Breaking humans were now having to clean up the broken and destroyed nuclear facilities and chemical plants worldwide.
But the Chief Engineers of the Fathis teams are the leading experts in the technology of their time. They work with Nanites all the way down to the atomic level. But they do work with the very large, like a grid system to protect a planet. They can create memory chips using atoms, and of course, impressive weapons. They work hand-and-hand with the Science division of the Fathis teams.
Hover crafts are the typical means of transportation around the planet and that is based off of the planets magnetic polarity.
The spaceships are actually plants that we learned to “back engineer” into space. But with Earth’s mother ships the size of four football fields, technical devices supporting human life within these space-pods is a necessity. With the combined work of engineers and the Wingmakers gives humanity the chance to travel through space within the safety of these plants. The Wingmakers are in charge of these spaceships.
I don't know which, but I got one of them. I feel like shite.
I'll post something either Tues or Wed.
_So I know everyone is like, “What is the big frick’n deal about this 2012 Mayan thing?”
I'll tell it to you real simple.
_ Though every year, in December, the Sun and the Milky Way, from the surface of the Earth, appear to come into alignment, and every year, precession causes a slight shift in the Sun's position in the Milky Way. Given that the Milky Way takes between 700 and 1400 years for the Sun's December solstice position to precess through it. The galactic coordinate system (GCS) is a celestial coordinate system which is centered on the Sun and is aligned with the apparent center of the Milky Way galaxy.
Like many others I can’t help but wonder if anything will happen on, or around December 21, 2012. This date isn’t all just based on the Mayan calendar. There are many other ancient prophesies that count this date as important, like the “I Ching”, the Egyptian Phoenix Cycle, and not to mention the Hopi Indians. Each have interesting concepts of what will happen in 2012.
Do I think it’s the end of the world? Nah, that’s just media hype around a few individuals who haven’t researched the date. I seriously think it is just a reset. Like going from December 31, 2011, to January 1, 2012. The Mayan calendar just starts over.
Now the real tantalizing question is; how did the Mayan’s know we cross the center of the Milky Way galaxy on that exact date? Did someone tell them? If so, who?
Yet, I do think something major could happen. The Earths poles did flip at one time, and something was strong enough to force Venus to rotate the opposite direction than all the other planets in our system. Was it because we got too close to “Sagittarius A” that it messed with our polarity field? I hope not. Maybe being between Jupiter and the Sun, will keep us unflippable.
There is a belief that the Earth's magnetic field is weakening, which could precede a reversal of the north and south magnetic poles. Scientist say it takes a long time for a reversal to happen, but let’s face it, they really don’t know. They weren’t here when it happened.
Some debate whether there is a black hole or not. I believe there is, the universe is not random. We are circling around something big, and something powerful enough to keep our sun in its orbit.
Stars near the galactic center are believed to be orbiting a super massive black hole called Sagittarius A (Sgr A) (from Gillessen et al., The Astrophysical Journal, 692:1075–1109, 2009)
Based on observations by a group led by Reinhart Genzel have found the best evidence that there is a supermassive black hole lurking at the center of our galaxy. By watching 28 individual stars (above), it is possible to see that they share a common point around which they all orbit. But perhaps most interestingly, one such star (so called 'S2') was observed to complete a full orbit around the central point - the first time such an event has ever been recorded. From the speed and shape of the orbit of this star (and the others), it was determined that the central point must be relatively small, but with a mass equivalent to around 4 million times that of the Sun.
Again, how did the Mayans know we were aligning with the center of our galaxy on 12/21/12? It can’t be dumb luck.
Hey, if you have any questions, just e-me.
_ I just adore my cat. I would run into a burning building to go get him. I would do anything for him, though he would do anything for me. I know, “Crazy cat lady”. He is a big boy, 22 lb. He’s a little fat but he’s mostly just a big cat. At eleven years old he still occasionally plays.
_He is quite a character. He’ll tell you off if he disagrees. If he likes you, he’ll kiss you. He’s like a two year old. He eats around the dark nuggets in his bowl, (actually he’ll spit them out) he comes and tells me when he’s pooped, (not pee, just poo) and gets aggravated when I don’t pay attention to him, when he wants me to pay attention to him. And he’ll give an aggravated huff. If he thinks you’re being rude, he’ll give you a withered, disgusted look. Animals too. If he thinks they lack manners, he’ll glare down at them.
He doesn’t like messes and avoids them. If you threw 52 cards on the floor, he’ll walk around each one. An annoying habit he has, is he likes to wake me up in the morning if I slept too late. If I don’t get up, he’ll just lay there, staring at me. To the left, his expression is, "Are you kidding me? Are you trying to piss me off?"
But he is a lover not a fighter. Only once, have I ever seen him become territorial around a person. It was very strange, he would not let a maintenance guy into my apartment. He was hissing and growling, pounding the floor with his front feet. If I didn’t see it for myself, I’d never believe it. But he has never been aggressive since with human or animal.
_I could write tons about him but I leave it at that. But here’s a funny little thing, if he was one of the characters in Fathis: Birth of a Falcon, he’d be...Cornac. Yeah, he knows he’s gorgeous. The picture to the right he's giving his "come hither" look.
Some say people like to substitute pets for kids-ok....
I do not have kids, I do not want kids, but kids always seem to like me. I think it’s because I don’t treat them like a kid. I treat them as an equal. Whether 5 or 18 I assume we have an understanding. I don’t do baby talk or say “look at the cutie”, blah, blah, blah. I talk to kids like they are intelligent humans, because I hated that crap when I was a kid. I remember I used to think, “Do they think I am an idiot so they need to talk down to me?” I imagine there are kids out there that are like me, so I treat them with intelligence.
(Notice, I never tell you his name?)
_ I kept hearing the theories that “this’ll happen on 2012”, or “that” will happen.
I thought, well what if everyone is right, and it ALL happens, the good, the bad, and the ugly. Destructive earth changes, global wars, alien wars, dimensional split, political and religious sabotage, and then the other side of the coin is humanity becoming enlightened, Rapture, mother nature cleaning the slate.
Despite the fact that majority of us would not live through it, what would happen to the survivors?
Other than plunging into the dark ages, again; how would we change if suddenly we had access to 90% of our brain power? (this is one of the theories) And of course in the book I have earthling make a gigantic accidental uh-oh, when we kill-off an alien race during the shift of 2012. But this all takes place in the past in regards to Fathis: Birth of a Falcon.
The story itself actually developed over many, many years. Scenes would play out over in my head, over, and over, and over, until one day in Phoenix, I read a book and realized I could write just as well as that author. (that book will remain anonyms) So I started writing it down. Incredibly, the scenes (voices) in my head stopped replaying once I accurately wrote them down.
Ahhh the silence-oh wait! I’m kidding, there’s at least five years’ worth of the story STILL in my head. I guess I get to stay crazy a little bit longer.
But Kealin was always there, and so was Na’tan. The other characters just weaseled their way in.
And huge majority of the flamboyant scenes are to music, all sorts of music. I guess that is how the story truly developed. Some of the scenes play exactly to the music.
And the back story about 2012, developed over time.
Some say my book is too big and complicated for a teen. Fooy! If I was given “Fellowship of the Ring” at age 10, I would have devoured it just as much as when I was 18.
What’s amazing to me is there is an even bigger story than this one (before the Breaking), that I just don’t have the balls to tackle. Maybe someday.
_ Quite simply, it was the name of a man in Europe who discovered putting people together into "teams", with a strong control of their new Ethereal abilities, built strength and protection for humanity's budding new defenses. The Breaking revealed we were stronger together than apart.
Ironically, the Breaking also made organized religion collapse, making it more of an individualistic quest.

_ Like I told a friend of mine, I don’t think my filter button is off, I think it’s broken.
I can seem tactless at times and I end up saying what everyone is thinking, but no one has the balls to say it. I walk in and without any pre-thought just say it. Like “Wow, you got fat.” And it doesn’t matter who you are. You could be the president of the free nation, and I have no fear to speak my mind. Which in a way is good, you know I’m not hedging around the bush no matter who you are or how important you think you are :) And you know you’ll always get an honest answer. It may not be sugar coated or what a person wants to hear, and it may not even be correct because it is just an opinion. But people forget that part. I feel no need to edit my thoughts and that’s where I get into trouble. Because some people can’t handle the things I say, and it can and does, back fire with (at least to me) surprising consequences.
Needless to say my friends need thick skin around me. I try to remember to edit what comes out of my mouth for their sake but sometimes things just come out. Or, it sounds ok in my head, but once spoken…not so good.
It might happen because of my short attention span. That if I don’t say it right now, it’ll get lost in the muck of my head and I’ll never get it out. So I just end up saying every inappropriate thing that people cringe to hear.
So I have learned, and 9 times out of 10, I just keep my mouth shut. Makes me appear to be the shy person at the party, but inside there is a humorous monologue that only a few would appreciate. People who know me have probably caught me laughing to myself on more than one occasion.
I think I can take it as good as I get. I hope I can. It’s only fair. Whenever someone says something that is supposed to be hurtful, I will actually take a step back and critique myself with that same tactless view. Sometimes I think they’re right, sometimes not.
And it doesn’t help that my sense of humor is a little wacky. What I find to be absolutely hysterical, many others would not. And I have a talent to turn anything into a sexual innuendo. It’s truly an art. Absolutely anything… Many say it’s childish. I find it very funny and fun. Try it one day, you’ll be laughing the entire day.
But let’s face it, I am not one of those fluffy bunny, innocent as apple pie, walking on egg shells type of writer like many other teen writers appear to be. Or that your mother would approve of. Matter of fact, parents will probably hate me. And religions will hate me. And the government will be watching me… LOL
But it’s alright. They’re just afraid because I threaten something they stand for.
You may hate me, you may like me, you may not care and neither do I.
See, I did it again...
Mint Chip Ice cream, Krispy Kreme donuts, homemade pizza, pralines, Chinese chicken salad...mmmmm!
