Devotion to Writing


Devotion to Writing

Devotion to writing is something that you have to make a priority in your life. You have to want to take the time to write about anything that comes to your mind. After all you have readers who are interested in the things that you have to talk about through your writing. Writing takes time, thought, and research because of the variety of things for example:

  • people you talk to
  • jobs you have done during the day
  • memories you have thought about from the past
  • Looking at old pictures
  • reading old journal entries

Enjoying what you write

When you sit down to write you have to actually enjoy what you are writing about and you have to enjoy writing. For some people it is a therapeutic technique that allows them to write down their passions, thoughts, fears, realities, and much more. It is a way to express those feelings, thoughts, memories, and anything else that comes to mind. In writing things that have happened in your past down on paper, computer, tablet or whatever your preference allows you to let go of those feelings that keep entering your mind. For example: I love to write and always have because it allows me to reach the inner side of my thoughts and reach those deep dark thoughts that stay hidden in my mind.

Topics

Throughout the world there is an abundance of topics that you can write on and voice your own opinion about how you feel about that topic. You can also give your thoughts about a variety of food dishes, money-saving techniques for things around the house. The possibilities are endless when it comes to writing. Some people write reviews about places they shop at, places they eat, and customer service. Reading what other people write about certain topics allows you to gain perspective and other opinions about the numerous questions that people have in this world. People around the world have questions especially when it comes to children, home, work, meals, saving money, and gift ideas.

Variations to Writing

Everyone has their own style of writing especially when it comes to characters, scenery, food, drinks, plots, atmosphere, and anything else that you can think about within a writer’s mind. By reading books written by other’s you see what they are writing about within their books, and you find yourself imagining the scene that you are reading. Some people write in the first person, and some write in the third person. You have to decide what type of writing you want to do and how you want to convey your writing to the readers reading your work.

An abundance of writing

  • History
  • Romance
  • Non-fiction
  • Fiction
  • Mystery
  • Suspense
  • Horror
  • Drama
  • Poetry

The list can go on and on without fail because there are numerous subjects to write on throughout the world. You have your choice of anything that you would like to write about in the world from many different perspectives. I hope that the things that I write about within this blog help other’s you may have the same type of situation, problem, and questions about a variety of things in the world. Inspiration comes from voicing your opinions, trials, triumphs, and techniques that you have used throughout the process to find what worked in your particular situation.

An Observation of The World of Parenting In “2014”


Sometimes she wonders what people think about when they up and leave their children without any regards at how it will effect them. It is because they do not care about anyone except for what they want in life. Young people do not have any morals about anything in this world. They only care about what they want and no one else matters. Sometimes it may be a good thing that parents up and leave their children because at least then they would have a fighting chance to make something of themselves. In this day and time the younger generation just  does not care about anything except themselves.

Where have the parents gone? Parents are not parents these days because they do not pay attention to what their children need to know about in the world. It is okay for a little girl or little boys to go out, have sex, and get pregnant. You know it takes two to tango and make babies. Therefore, it is going to take two to raise the babies, and keep them out of harms way. A relationship is 50/50 and it takes both of you to make the relationship work. You cannot take each other for granted and you have to work together to make your relationship work.

Because they know that mom and dad will be there to step in and take care of the child because she has to go to school, work, and do what they want to do. Everyday parents are raising their grandchildren, and great grandchildren because the parents do not want them. They get hooked on drugs, and they do not want to give up their life of partying, and being selfish. If they did not want to have children they should have not put themselves in that situation. They should not put their selfish wants above their children. The human race is strange and the ones that will suffer this will be our generation of children.

Sometimes it is not the parents fault for how their grown children act and do the things that they do. It is because of the people that they hang around and if you are going to hang around people that do drugs, drink all the time, party all the time, and leave their children to fend for themselves then they are better off with the grandparents. Some of the people that have children today should not have children because they are not ready to take on the responsibility of another living being.

People think that they are owed food stamps, welfare, and everything else that they get for free. Although they are getting it for free because it is the taxpayer’s that are having to pay for these people to spend their actual money on things that they do not need. I admit that there are some people that need the help and they should receive the help. However, they should make the effort into making their life better so that they do not need the help from the government. They cannot support the ones that they have but then they go out and get pregnant all over again.

Back in the old days the man of the house went out and worked to bring in the money, and the woman stayed home to take care of the house, and children. However, in the world today it takes two to make ends meet and sometimes you cannot make ends meet with both parties working. You have to work different shifts because some parents do not want to leave their children in the care of people that they do not know. However, you do what you have to do for your children, and family.

She knows that there are some good parents out in the world that teach their children the right and wrong way to be. She admires the ones that actually take the time to spend those precious moments with their children because they do not come all the time. Every time she turns on the television, radio, internet and reads about children that have been tossed out like a piece of garbage, left in cars, being abducted or anything like that it is depressing because these children cannot defend themselves. They are not old enough to know what is going on and why they are being discarded like trash or left behind for someone else to take care of them.

Sometimes they miss having little children running around the house. They are precious little beings. To watch their personalities come alive each year that they grow makes you think about those moments when they are older. Children are precious and we need to make sure that we love, nurture, and raise them to be leaders not follower’s.

Memories of The Past

This blogging challenge has turned out to be a wonderful experience, and it makes you stop to think about what you want to write. Sometimes it is hard to do because there are some things that you just do not think people would read. However, this post is going to be about the people who have left this world. Some I have never met because I was not thought about during that time.

1952 Helen Cramer

This is my grandmother Helen Bertha Cramer whom I loved very much. She would always wear a turtle neck when I was growing up because she was always cold. She loved collecting stuffed animals, and many other things for the grandkids. She was a wonderful woman.

1953 Joe Hopkinson

This is Joseph Hopkinson, Jr. He married Helen Bertha Cramer. He was my grandfather who loved crafting, and loved Star Trek, Mash, and many other shows.

1890 Joseph Hopkinson Sr

1890 Joseph Hopkinson, Sr  my great grandfather who died in 1959 at the age of 88

1916 Julia Ann Bolt Fancy Gap VA

More too come!!! Still looking through old pictures and finding the ones that I would like to put with these. Also trying to find information about some of the ancestor’s that I did not know.

What Will You be Remembered For?


Image

This is an essay that I wrote while going to classes for my GED in 2003 it was one of the first times that I actually kept something that I had written. I managed to get a 3.5 on it and the grade was based on the scales of the GED.

Even though I will probably never achieve fame, and fortune. There are some things that I will be remembered for like being a good mother, getting my GED, and just being myself.

Being a good mother is something that will be remembered because of all the things I do for my children as they grow up in their life, they will always appreciate you, and remember the times you kept them out of trouble, harm, and all the love that you gave them.

Another reason I will be remembered is because I achieved going to classes to get my GED. This is something that I have wanted to do for sometime now, and I will achieve it. My family will remember the trials and triumphs of my life.

The last thing that I would like to be remembered for is just being myself instead of someone that I am not. I would not want people to remember me in a way that was not true, and I would rather be remembered for being myself.

In conclusion, there are many reasons why someone would want to be remembered here are mine being a good mother, getting my GED, just being myself, and eventually getting a college education.

You know after reading this I have come to realize that I have just achieved everything that I want to be remembered for and now it is time to set some new things in place that I would like to be remembered for. I also have to say after going to college and having to write longer essays during those times. This one should not have gotten the grade that it did because it surely was not long enough. However, I am glad that the teacher gave me the grade that she did based on the scale of requirements from the GED. In the future I will work on this to make it better and fill in some of the missing pieces that should be included in such an essay.

A Change I Should Make


My life is wonderful

Life is

You know I have been asked before if there is anything that I would change about my past to make my life a little happier. But when I stop and think about how my life has turned out I would not change anything because then I would not be where I am today. Life is what you make of it and how you spend your life. You can spend your life depressed about how your life is not going well but it would not make you any happier. Or you can be thankful for the life that you have and make it better.

Memories Of Time Past!


What a lovely post…. 🙂

The lashes fell on my skin, burrowing holes through it

My hands gripped the tree as blood flowed freely.

The ground soaked and groaned.

My tears mingled with blood as hope fled.

 A quick gaze upwards and the sky mocked me.

What sins have I committed?

What atrocities would call for such retribution?

Then like a glimpse in the night,

I saw a new world.

Different from my present.

Free from pain of the field and labouring for the proud.

A spasm, a breeze, a sound.

And mercy reclaimed my soul in a faint.

………………..

On Saturday, I went to watch the acclaimed drama, ’12 Years A Slave,’ directed by Steve McQueen. I wished I hadn’t watch the film, it was brutal. I ran out twice, it was very difficult to watch. As a writer, I’ve got a hyper imagination, and as the lashes landed on Patti’s (played by Nyong’o) bare skin…

I was covered with dust and grime from digging through boxes in the garage when I found the one marked TOYS. Using a Swiffer cloth, I wiped off the small box and my hands.  What toys did we have that Mother would have saved and that Daddy would have tucked into the tightly stacked boxes on the shelving in the garage eaves?  We never had the money to buy anything expensive that would be worth keeping, so I couldn’t think what it could be.  I peeled away the packing and memories flooded my mind.

I was ten years old.  We had just moved from the San Fernando Valley to Simi Valley at the foot of the Simi Hills, close to Daddy’s new job testing rocket fuels at the Santa Susana Field Laboratory.  Any money that Christmas season would go towards a modest Christmas dinner.  If there were…
