If you are looking for a writer to write articles, reviews, poetry or short stories, I can guarantee successful outcomes through each of the specialities listed.

My writing is very broad; I do not limit myself to one particular topic and always write about anything and everything that catches my interests. Mostly, I venture into articles about Movies, Music, Life, Love and Writing. Each post on my blog is SEO designed and created to provide the best of the best possible results. Going on my daily views, reaching a height of up to 600, I can write great content for you if and when you need it.

However, if you're looking into a more creative side in your hiring process, you would be happy to know that in my free time, I write poetry and short stories. It is a daily thing for me, as I spend at least a few hours at a time creating my own worlds and words for the entertainment of others.

Samples of my reviews and articles can be found on this blog, all you have to do is take a look around. But, if you want to have a look at my stories and poetry, visit the links below.

Since a very early age, reading has been one of my favourite things to do, when I'm not writing of course. If ever I struggled or lost inspiration with my stories, I would pick up the nearest book off the shelf and give it a read to spark ideas. Depending on the book I chose, it would either help tremendously and have me setting it down again so I could write, or it would do the opposite; I'd be reading the book for the rest of the day until it was finished.

When I was younger, the books I had in my possession were merely for children. Some were even Goosebumps stories that I'll admit to still enjoying now, but not as much as I enjoy watching the show itself if ever I can catch it. 

I bought Order Of The Phoenix back in 2003 when it was first published. I was on holiday at the time and spent the rest of that sunny holiday curled up on the nearest chair reading that book. It is, in my opinion, the best of the series, as is the movie itself. My opinion may be shadowed by the evergrowing like I have for Sirius Black, but still, I believe this was the best of them all. As much as I held a lot of hatred after Sirius' death. If you are a Potter fan and love the books and movies just the same, leave a comment and let me know which is your favourite book and which is your favourite movie. It'd be interesting to see a variety of answers!

After recently stumbling upon this fantastic blog geared toward helping writers with their innermost struggles, I just had to write up a post about it to let the writing world know. At least, those who are not already aware of KM Weiland's wise words might find it a delight to have a look around on her blog for suggestions, improvement strategies and inspiration.

The title of this wonderful blog is WordPlay and should you wish to visit, simply click the underlined link and nose around. You will not be disappointed. I may not be a regular reader just yet as I only came across it over an hour ago, but in that short amount of time I've read through several of her posts and am amazed at how inspiring they are. I'm always in need of tips and ideas that will help me along on my writing journey, and that particular blog is one of the most helpful. I encourage people to visit and have a read through her ideas, it really is a marvellous and well penned corner of the web.

I want to share my most popular Sirius Black fan fiction. Prior to this piece, I had not had much luck in pleasing readers with my words about Sirius and the world of Hogwarts. This one seemed to change all the negatives to positives; and although it's a little far-fetched, it's something Sirius fangirls all over would just love to see happen. If only it could have actually taken place somewhere down the line!
My mind replayed haunting images of him falling beyond the veil as the sound of his godsons cries echoed against my skull once more. That day had been dreadfully painful for us all; and yet I could not help but feel a sense of sadness greater than that of the emotions tearing through others who had grown to admire Sirius Black.

He had been a rock for his godson ever since he escaped Azkaban prison and informed him of the false accusation. Now, he was no longer around. Although but a month or two had passed since his death, the burden of living life without the infamous Padfoot was proving a difficult task for all. Those who had known him for a lifetime were distraught still, finding even the simplest of daily tasks difficult to comprehend. I was one of those people. My body yearned to be held in his loving embrace; an embrace he enveloped all of his godson’s friends within often. Over the years I had grown jealous, silently wishing his arms would one day encircle my body and flee far from others. His passing had caused a rift between many; but myself, Hermione, Ron and Harry had merged closer than ever in the hope of pulling through. Harder times were ahead we believed.

“Guys, it’s about time I made my way to bed. I will see you all in the morning” I spoke, standing from my spot on the sofa and trudging up the staircase.

On my way up the stairs I heard the faint mumble of everyone saying goodnight; smiling at the sound. The bedroom door closed behind me without even being touched and I merely shrugged in response. I was not in any kind of mood to play games with the noble and most ancient House Of Black. Sighing heavily as I walked further into the room, my thoughts drifted once more to the man who was once its owner. Given his untimely death and a dire need for changes to be made to his childhood home, each of us had been given the job of decorating. I had been directed into his old bedroom, unfortunately.

Though it was not the best place for any one of us to reside for the time being, I had to admit being so close to what was once a huge part of him was comforting. Knowing he had slept in this bed for many years of his life, and even sporadically during his role at the Order Of The Phoenix; brought a great sense of happiness to my saddened eyes. Pain washed over my face momentarily as my fingers traced the soft cotton sheets. I sunk down onto the mattress and wished he would return to make us all giggle at his witty humour; but I knew it was impossible. He was gone, for good, unable to return. I sobbed quietly to myself and shook like a leaf as I lay back against the pillows. His scent filled my nose and I inhaled deeply, taking it all in as though it were a rare brand of cologne. Of course, the smell of Sirius had always been inviting, in more ways than one.

As I lay back on the mattress and allowed my mind to take a journey back in time yet again, it landed on another precious memory of Sirius. This memory however was personal to me and only me. It spoke loudly of my feelings toward him, and being the young adult I now was, it could very well have fallen into place perfectly for me. Had his evil hearted cousin not murdered him, he would know how I truly felt about him. Though I had tried countless times to confess, the look in his eyes during those moments of weakness held me back. They were so very captivating; capturing me in a trance. I always fought to avoid giving in to temptation and with my strong mind set, it worked without fail. But, over the years and as I grew that much older, I realised my like for him had been something much more advanced. Turning to Hermione a few times with my sob story about falling in love with someone who could never return my feelings had been effective, up until she asked with whom I had fallen so hard for. Even then, although she sprouted her distaste accordingly, she remained incredibly understanding of my situation and vowed till the end of time to be there for me if ever I needed advice or a shoulder to lean on in times of need. Now would have been appropriate; right at this moment.

Just like the song itself.. I want to create my own list of things that I do not like. My husband would agree wholeheartedly with these things no doubt ;) but that's something different entirely, I sharn't get into it.

I don't like spending a single day without my significant other
I don't like to go walking in the sun and walk back in the rain
I don't like people who so easily contradict themselves
I don't like being told I am wrong when I am clearly not
I don't like sleeping on an unsettled argument or debate
I don't like people who believe everything they read
I don't like following trends of any kind
I don't like waking up so late that I'm still pretty tired
I don't like garlic, or mushrooms
I don't like certain food unless it is cooked as I like it
I don't like vampires that do nothing but sparkle

Aside from that ridiculous list of things that I just can't stand, there are an abundance of things that I do like, but I just can't be bothered listing them all as it would take forever. I'd want to scram them all in somehow, because the things I do like are far more important than the things I don't like. It would be unfair on the negatives to outshine them with the positives, so I shall shush and end this post here. Share your likes and dislikes in the comments!

More than 400 years ago a great citizen wished to embed the fifth of November forever in our memory. His hope was to remind the world that fairness, justice, and freedom are more than words, they are perspectives. So if you've seen nothing, if the crimes of government remain unknown to you, then I suggest you allow the fifth of November to pass unmarked.

This is not a top ten list, therefore it is not in any kind of order. It may or may not be controversial as some will agree with the choices below, others will not. I do know one thing though; most of these character picks are favourites and known worldwide, so I'd find it hard to believe there is anyone missing. Do send in a comment if I am mistaken; all choices are welcome and will receive at least a special mention. 

It would be impossible of course to include every last one of Johnny's characters on this list, though an analysis of them all would be splendid to read (perhaps sometime in the near future). Anyway, enough of all this chit-chat. Time to view and depict the most memorable of Mr. Depp's characters, throughout his whole career as an actor. I hope people will agree with those mentioned, and again, if you feel someone has been missed, please comment with the characters name and your reason as to why they should be on here.

Auguries Of Innocence is one of my favourite pieces of poetry; William Blake being my favourite poet. In this particular verse, it is quite clear what is being said, if you allow yourself to delve deeply enough into what is right there in front of you.

Its meaning is very similar, in the sense that you have to dig a little deeper in order to find the beauty in even the smallest and most common of things. Have the innocence of a young child when you hold a grain of sand and stare into it as though the universe is held within it. As with the wild flower line, if you open your mind enough and allow your inner innocence to seep through, you will find that you can see more than a little beauty in flowers. The last two lines are my favourite, for they represent just how precious time is and how we should never make a go at wasting it. Some people are hardheaded enough to believe time is in abundance and there's always room to do the things we love at a later date, but there really is no better time than now. We, for all we know, might not have all this time we think we deserve. So, if you could hold infinity in the palm of your hand, or eternity in just one hour, what would you do with it?

Ellie's Vison
After a good few years, I came across this beautiful movie once again and decided to give it another watch. I am still very much in awe of how amazing it is. I understand that there are a fair amount of people who find this movie and its story, coupled with poor directing, to be quite a dull piece of entertainment. But, I simply wonder how so many people are able to just push aside the in depth meaning behind it; to find its purpose by drawing their own conclusions in regard to what the movie is subtly trying to tell them. 

Over the years, my belief in a higher power or ultimate being has somewhat diminished, but only slightly. I have not lost hope or faith that there just might be something else out there. I do believe that it's a possibility. I cannot abide the minds of some scientists who seem to live by their own religion of thinking they know and understand absolutely everything with a little extra effort, more so than others who go searching for answers to questions they may have. I'm not wishing to sound like one of those people, for I am not. I suppose in a way I can relate whole-heartedly to Ellie, in the sense that I would love to have some form of evidence before jumping on the train of believers in something that might or might not be out there. I do believe it's possible, I am not suggesting it's impossible. I am merely realising that I'd need, even in a small amount, proof that there is a genuine, believable entity somewhere out there in the vast universe, just waiting for every last one of us to have hope and faith in them. It is a lovely thought, that there may be, but I'm unsure.

I do not doubt that there is something there, for so many people to have such faith in the possibility, there just has to be, in one way or another. Ellie did not believe in God because she wished for proof to reveal that God was in fact real and existed not only the hearts of others, but also deep down in herself. I like to think that, toward the end of this movie, when she realises that like everyone else on the planet, she couldn't provide evidence to support her claims of visiting Vega and interacting with alien life, that she understood the need to have such evidence was not always possible. There are, always have been and always will be times when proof is impossible to capture, so your heart is all you can depend on. Your own faith and your own hope is all you truly have to help you make the choices you make in life.

Do you believe in an ultimate being and other life forms? Or are you matching with Ellie's personality, believing only in what you have seen evidence of?

My favourite of all dinosaurs has always been a Brontosaurus. This could be due to my love of Littlefoot in the Land Before Time, mainly due to how adorable he is and how he is a strong little dino that seems to get through all his struggles.

Brontosaurus dinosaurs may not have been exactly like Littlefoot, his mother or his grandparents, but this is the reason I adore them so much. Another plus side is that these dino's are veggie's. There wouldn't have been any worry about being eaten around these lovely creatures. I just want to squish Littlefoot in a tight embrace, he's way too cute for his own good!

Everything I can remember about Rainbow Brite, Starlight and Twink all come from memories of one of my favourite video's as I was growing up. It was a birthday party special and featured a mini animated movie, as well as a group of kids with a lifesize Rainbow and Twink.

To this day, I still enjoy watching that video, though I can only find it online these days. I no longer have a video player around the house like I used to back in the day. That makes me sound really old. I'm not though ;) almost twenty one and feeling as young as the sprinkles on a cake. I say that because I've just thrown together a huge sponge cake and coloured its icing a pale pink, with added star sprinkles. This reminds me of Rainbow Brite too; just look at the image of her and those star sprinkles she uses to make wishes come true!

Wonderful memories they are, one's I will never forget for as long as I shall live. Starlight: the magnificent horse as he calls himself, will remain my favourite fictional horse of all time. I suppose most people would vote for Black Beauty in that sense, but to me it's always been the beautifully coloured, well-mannered and fun Starlight. I wish I was Rainbow.

This is an amazing thought to be thinking, if you allow yourself to do so. Try, just for a moment to think of what your childhood might have been like had you not believed in any of those magical wonders. It would not have been the same, would it? Even though as we grow older and seem to forget about what once used to delight and entice us into chasing after make believe, a part of us will always hold on to what made us so happy.

Believe in what you once used to thrive off, for it may heighten and enlighten you. Dragons, fairies and all other myths we were introduced to as small children will forever linger in the backs of our minds for as long as we all shall live. It never truly dies out with age, as is obvious by this Lennon quote.

There is always going to be something magical and mystical about the idea portrayed through this movie. 

It has been a fact in our home for some years now that Steven Spielberg knows more than he lets on, what with all his alien related scripts. It would not come as a surprise if he one day admitted to knowing a hell of a lot more about these extraterrestrial beings. In fact, it would be such a heart-warming detail to find out. Not only that, but it would comfort and support many claims that we are not alone in the universe. 

There has been a great shortage of genuine proof since the dawn of time, but thousands and thousands believe that there is life out there, as well as our own. It would be selfish and hardheaded to just deny the possibility of there being other forms of life elsewhere in such a vast universe. Movies like this one, along with E.T. and Contact, show clearly just how likely it is that we have neighbours watching over us, whether from a close distance or a far one. I for one believe that there is something else out there. It's a loving thought; quite peaceful in fact. It'd be ridiculous to not think there's anything out there other than us given the size of the universe in which we live. 

Do you believe there are other beings out there?

Even though this is a top ten list, it isn't in any specific order. I shall allow my readers to choose in which order the following quotes should be listed. I don't believe I can choose the best of the best in just ten steps, but it's worth giving it a shot. 

1. Love is passion, obsession, someone you can't live without. I say, fall head over heels. Find someone you can love like crazy and who will love you the same way back. How do you find him? Well, you forget your head, and you listen to your heart. And I'm not hearing any heart. Cause the truth is, honey, there's no sense living your life without this. To make the journey and not fall deeply in love, well, you haven't lived a life at all. But you have to try, cause if you haven't tried, you haven't lived. 
2. So I guess this is where I tell you what I learned - my conclusion, right? Well, my conclusion is: Hate is baggage. Life's too short to be pissed off all the time. It's just not worth it. Derek says it's always good to end a paper with a quote. He says someone else has already said it best. So if you can't top it, steal from them and go out strong. So I picked a guy I thought you'd like. 'We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained, it must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic chords of memory will swell when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature.' 
3. We don't read and write poetry because it's cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race and the human race is filled with passion. Medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for. To quote from Whitman, "O me! O life! Of the questions of these recurring, of the endless trains of the faithless, of cities filled with the foolish; what good amid these, O me, O life? Answer. That you are here, that life exists, and identity; that the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse." That the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse. What will your verse be? 
4. We accept the fact that we had to spend a whole Saturday in detention for whatever it was we did wrong, but we think it's stupid for you to make us write an essay telling you who we think we are. You see us as you want to see us. In the simplest terms with the most convienient definitions. But what we found out is that each of us is a brain, an athlete, a basketcase, a princess, and a criminal. Does that answer your question?

5. My name is Maximus Desimus Meridius, commander of the armies of the north, general of the Felix legions, loyal servant to the true emperor, Marcus Areillius. Father to a murdered son, husband to a murdered wife, and I will have my vengeance, in this life or the next.

6.  That thing, that moment when you kiss someone everything becomes hazy, and the only thing in focus is you and this person. And you realize that that person is the only person you are supposed to kiss for the rest of your life. And for one moment you get this amazing gift, and you wanna laugh and you wanna cry because you feel so lucky you have found it and so scared that it will go away all at the same time.

7. I think, no, no I am certain that you are the most unattractive man I have met in my entire life. In the short time that I have known you, you have demonstrated all of the loathsome characteristics of the male personality, AND even discovered a few new ones. You are physically repulsive, morally reprehensible, selfish, stupid, you have no taste, a lousy sense of humor, and you smell. You know, you're not even interesting enough to make me sick.

8. There are four questions of value in life... What is sacred? Of what is the spirit made? What is worth living for, and what is worth dying for? The answer to each is the same. Only love.

9. Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.

10. When you talked earlier about after a few years how a couple would begin to hate each other by anticipating their reactions or getting tired of their mannerisms-I think it would be the opposite for me. I think I can really fall in love when I know everything about someone-the way he's going to part his hair, which shirt he's going to wear that day, knowing the exact story he'd tell in a given situation. I'm sure that's when I know I'm really in love.

It is a great shame that this lovely couple have called it quits, but that is not quite the purpose of this post. I've just been reading an update concerning what will happen to Suri once the divorce is final. As we know so far, Katie wants sole custody of their daughter (which she clearly must have valid reasons for so I won't get into that one too deeply).

About midway through the article, it seems that one of Tom's scientology friends has advised him not to battle with Katie to keep his daughter in his life. The scientologists reason for this is solely to protect Scientology and keep it from receiving a swarm of negativity. It would, in his words, shine a warning light down upon every Scientology church and those who are believers/followers of the religion. That is fair enough, but to suggest such a thing is absurd. 

Why should Tom not battle with Katie for the right to have custody of his own daughter. If I recall the man Cruise is, he would under no circumstances whatsoever, abandon the opportunity to fight for his rights as a father, just so save a religion from falling with a bad reputation. If he takes on board the advice from his friend, he is a fool and a man I never once thought he was or would turn into. I must say, though I said I would not, Katie is awfully selfish to be making such claims and putting forth such ridiculous suggestions. Tom has every right to see his daughter. Any problems Katie and Tom have should be strictly between the two of them and should in no way fall back on their little girl. It isn't fair on her to lose out because her parents can't see eye to eye.

This is not for everyone.

In fact, even though I have made this repeatedly and received compliments through its yummy smell, no one seems daring enough to actually try it. It's a fairly simple process with absolutely no extra effort required at all.

All you need is one tin of spaghetti, a dollop or two of mayonnaise and a packet of your favourite crisps.

Then, you simply heat the spaghetti until it is piping hot, then turn the heat down a little so it is merely simmering. Add in your dollop or two of mayonnaise until it has completely curled in nicely with the spaghetti and turned it a lighter shade of orange. Then, add in your crisps after crunching them up by squeezing the packet, so there's nothing left but crumbs. Keep mixing until it is nicely combined and you're done. It's as simple as that, especially if you're in a hurry.

You can also add grated cheese on top, I know I do!

The only person who has the ability to teach you how to improve your writing skills is yourself. Only you are qaulified to take the most appropriate steps toward improvement, no one else can really tell you how.

However, there is always one vital step that all writers should take in order to progress further and build upon  more skills for their craft. Reading is wonderful and a great way to pick up on new words and styles.

Even if you are not much of a reader or you absolutely cannot stand the thought of picking up a novel of any shape or form, scanning newspaper articles or even online newsletters is a good idea to flex those creative muscles. As a writer, it is always necessary to learn every single day. We are made to adjust and adapt along our writing journeys, so there is always, without a doubt, something new to find.

As a rule, I never attempt to set any type of structure for my short stories. It seems to make things more complex than they should be. It's far easier to just go right along with the flow and allow your mind to wander as your fingers write or type the words.

Setting a structure can of course be a good idea from time to time, especially if you plan on writing anything longer than the usual length of a short story, but it isn't necessary otherwise. Structure isn't all that helpful when it is constant.

Learn to adapt to flowing along with your words rather than planning ahead and knowing what you're going to say before you've even said it. There is no better way to grow bored with what you are writing, so try to avoid making this mistake when battling shorter tasks. It's only going to have you biting the desk when things don't quite work out as you've hoped they would.

Only set some form of structure if it is vital for your storyline.

Well, I am surprised with myself. I never believed I would admit to liking anything about Twilight, but when it comes to the first book, I'm prepared to make an exception. My dislike of the movies still stands due to poor acting from pretty much every actor/actress, but the book is something else entirely. I suppose my love of the written word has a lot to do with this, but really, the acting could have been so much better. Agree or disagree, your opinion is your own and I will not argue against it.

I have yet to complete this book as I put it off for a very long time. I bought it when it first came out but unfortuntely, I ended up watching the movie first. My disappointment in that area had me throw the book to one side fearing it would only be the same useless plot with lacking description and excitement. I now stand corrected and will no doubt purchase the other books in the series once I have gotten through this one. I apologise to anyone who loves this movie, its plot and its couple, but the actors chosen should be shot, or at least put on trial for ruining a perfectly decent story. 

Edward and Bella are by all means a wonderful couple, but only in print.

I cannot for the life of me recall the names of the artists who sing these two songs, but I remember far more about each movie. Both the movies and soundtracks are beautiful together. 

If you're an avid lion fan, these are the perfect selection. Whilst there are many other lion related tales out there, nothing quite competes with that of true stories. Not only are these two wonderful adaptions ultimately believable and rightly so given that they are about a real life lioness named Elsa, they allow viewers to gain further knowledge on the daily lives and characteristics of some lions. Not all, as we know, are as lovable and gentle as Elsa, but it does happen every once in a while, especially if said lions have been hand reared since birth.

It would be impossible to determine the outcome once the lion had grown into an adult, but now and then, people manage to truly befriend their furry companions. As was the case with Elsa and the family she adorned years down the line.

Kiara - The Lion King - We Are One
If you have yet to hear this beautiful song from The Lion King, I would suggest a quick listen. Simba tells his daughter Kiara, in the form of a memorable song, just what they exist for and how they should remain true to what they have been born into. Being that she is quite a stubborn soul and wants to do her own thing, she responds with the above quote.

Thinking about this quote, how does it make you feel? Imagine for a moment that you were born into royalty, but you had chosen another passion to endure through life and couldn't possibly conceive of anything else. I've come to realise that this part of the song is incredibly powerful in more than a few situations. It could also been looked upon if you are struggling to find yourself or the route you should be taking. On the other hand, it could be looked back on if you have many people trying to tell you what you should do with your life, not allowing room for you to breathe and expecting so much of you.

Sometimes, what people want for us and what they say is for the best, is usually the opposite of what we truly want ourselves.

Are you a visionary? In order to understand the complete meaning behind this term, you must first ask yourself if you build upon opportunities, or you simply see them and expand them no further. If the latter is true of you then unfortunately, you are not much of a visionary soul.

Visionaries have the ability to look into the depths of everything put in front of them. They choose their paths and build more paths along the way. It is almost like a child playing with blocks. The taller the tower they build, the more opportunities they receive from it. 

A visionary is also able to find routes that others can not. They are more creative and always manage to dig their way out of situations when there is a problem. An example could be if you are stuck in a room and you cannot find a way out. A visionary would use both sides of their brain in order to find a solution to the problem at hand; whereas others may not realise there is a possibility or a way around it.

So true is this quote about understanding yourself. It is indeed a difficult phase to go through, but there is and always will be a way forward. If you don't believe in positivity, there's likely to be a great struggle in finding who you truly are. However, if you are someone who strives for the best and nothing less, you will soon find who you really are; who you are supposed to be and why you are on the path you are currently walking cautiously.

Try not to let negativity or distaste discourage you from reaching your goals in life, for they are one of the most important factors of it. If you are trying in vain to figure yourself out, allow a little time to reflect. Take it slow, take it easy and take it carefully. You don't want to rush into anything only to find out you would have been better off toning it down. It is always hard trying to understand yourself, more so than it is when those around don't seem to understand. When others don't understand you, it's heavy on the heart, but when you can't seem to understand yourself, it's a breaking of that heart. Be patient and it will come to you; you'll find yourself again.

Earlier this year, I created a forum for fans of Gary Oldman and it has grown quite well over the months with only its two users active. I have tried to attract visitors and invite people to join, but no one seems to like our dear Mr. Oldman. 

I also want to advertise my second forum and my friends forum. My second forum is for fans of Oded Fehr and my friends is for fans of Duran Duran. We both would like more people to join up and start chatting with us :] so if you are interested in any of the forums mentioned above, navigate to one or all of the links below and get mingling!

We'd greatly appreciate your company!!!
