Wheelchairs and sex: QOTD

One reason I’m very upfront and overshare about this is because it’s such a misconception that people in wheelchairs can’t have sex or be sexy — and they’re just lying there, so how can that be sexy? But there’s a lot I can still do in the bedroom, and I still think our sex life is better than the average married couple’s.

Book two: work in progress

As you all know I’m determined to write this next novel in the next six months like my dear friend and author, Kitty Neale.

I finished my research for this young adult novel and I just hope I can pull off such a sensitive storyline. I begin the job tomorrow writing 303 words a day for the next six months.

The deadline for me to finish my novel is the 12th of October 2019. I’m hoping this will give me discipline when writing and learning to push through writers block.

I am very proud to be part of the LGBT community that will be featured in this book and I’ve spoken to many people of gone through the same experiences as my characters so I’m hoping it will be authentic. It’s time we read more YA books; they seem to be ignored as novels for kids between 13-17 And are they just keep the kids quiet. But actually they carry the most serious messages more likely than Sophie Kinsella.

I haven’t ditched writing for adults good. Right now if I can help, Young people find the path in life through my writing then I’ll consider it in a success, Young adult writers are undervalued by far, when ultimately they are the ones guiding their preteen readers through reading about certain subjects that might not be discussed at school or a book that just helps and figure out who they are. Young adult writers are very brave; they often write the taboo that society thinks children cannot handle , but they can thanks to our writing as We are helping them to understand what’s going on at the world at present without reading like a pretentious broadsheet article or being patronised with a five page Illustrated book meant for three year olds.

I hope you’ll join me on my writing again and it won’t be easy and I won’t be as active on here is much, to be a writer you must write… You have to make sacrifices so we can fit around your daily life and then you’re doing it subconsciously too.

I’ll pop in when I can. Probably when my mum hides my laptop and makes me take a rest so my ME doesn’t flareup as much.

Wednesday Book review: A curse so dark and lonely by Brigid Kemmerer

Title: A curse so dark and Lonely

Genre: YA fantasy

Rating: Five stars

Plot/blurb from Amazon

in love, break the curse.

It once seemed so easy to Prince Rhen, the heir to Emberfall. Cursed by a powerful enchantress to repeat the autumn of his eighteenth year over and over, he knew he could be saved if a girl fell for him. But that was before he learned that at the end of each autumn, he would turn into a vicious beast hell-bent on destruction. That was before he destroyed his castle, his family, and every last shred of hope.

Nothing has ever been easy for Harper. With her father long gone, her mother dying, and her brother barely holding their family together while constantly underestimating her because of her cerebral palsy, she learned to be tough enough to survive. But when she tries to save someone else on the streets of Washington, DC, she’s instead somehow sucked into Rhen’s cursed world.

Break the curse, save the kingdom.

A prince? A monster? A curse? Harper doesn’t know where she is or what to believe. But as she spends time with Rhen in this enchanted land, she begins to understand what’s at stake. And as Rhen realizes Harper is not just another girl to charm, his hope comes flooding back. But powerful forces are standing against Emberfall . . . and it will take more than a broken curse to save Harper, Rhen, and his people from utter ruin.

My thoughts

Okay this book actually drew me in to Emberfall, I felt like a secondary character that couldn’t stop the events in front of me and that hasn’t happened since I read Harry Potter so I bow to you dear author. Regarding Harper’s disability I could see the message: Stay in your comfort zone and be truly protected or explore the world on your own and see what you are capable of. At this time in writing I need to put her words of faith in action thank you Ms Kemmerer. If you’re expecting a straightforward plot to follow then good luck finding one, as this book has more twists and turns than the wisteria climbing up Harper’s castle window. This book also teaches that fix the present and acknowledge your past and try to make a brighter future. It’s nice to see a vulnerability in Rhen the supposed ‘hero’ because that’s not how traditional fairytales go.. FYI this retelling even with its small use of medieval language and strategic language that my have gone over my head. It kicks ass to the original.

It is only true love when both can see each other’s ability to be vulnerable and the time to strong and become one.

Cannot wait for the second book!
