a lot of you have been asking

here's a short update. Praise God it looks like the cancer is contained. I'm now off the chemo treatments, and didn't even lose my hair! Miracle that, right? :D

I'm doing well, will be a regular at the hospital for the entire next year, but that's a very small price to pay. It seems like I can even still have kids, so there's miracle number two. God is good and I'm so grateful. I'm enjoying life, my family, my walk with Christ. No, times aren't always easy. Sometimes I don't feel great, but I enjoy life more than I ever did before.

As for writing however, that's gone into hiatus permanently. I just don't have the strength for it anymore. At least not right now. Maybe in the far future, but for now what's important is my walk, and my family. My health is steadily improving each day and for me this has been a new lease on life.

Thank you all for thinking of me and keeping me in your thoughts and prayers. I appreciated everyone of them.

God Bless

very short post

I'm here to let you all know I may not be around for a while. I found out why I haven't been feeling good lately and sadly it's the worst news I could have found out. I have cancer. I'm determined to beat this, I'm still very young..only 25, 26 tomorrow (yay me!:-D) I've got a lot of life left in me. I have a young son and a husband that loves me. I'm not gonna let this get me down.

For those of you that know me, know that I"m a fighter. Through prayer and God's grace I'll come back. Now starts my fight. For those of you that pray, pray the cancer hasn't spread. If it's confined than the chemo should do it.

God bless and take care.

Much love,
~~Viv

Haven't updated in a while

Sorry guys, life has been so crazy lately. :p Lots of family visiting, going and doing the summer vacation thing. Have been having a blast. Yesterday we went to SeaWorld. My son was just in heaven, loved every minute of it. Although I think he liked Shamu best. ;) We had to go watch the show twice. LOL. Ahhh, the joys of motherhood.

I may not be around much in the next few weeks. Got a few doctor appts to go to. But I just wanted to stop by and say hiya. :)

Much love,
~~V.K.

LOL! Oh man, I've got it bad...

Okay, everyone if you didn't know I'm a WRITER. And I've got it bad. Here's a funny little story that really happened to me last night.

So it's no secret how much I love animals and animal related shows. Anything that teaches you about the species, a la National Geographic. Anyway I tend to suffer from a mild form of insomnia. Don't know why it is, but I'm ridiculously tired all day long and then right around 9 at night...BOOM! wide awake. Seriously wide awake. Can't sleep until around 4 or 5 in the morning. I've tried to take sleeping pills to combat this, but it only makes me groggy and feeling more like shit the next morning, so I usually just suffer through it...but I digress...

So last night I'm up to my old shinanigans and am watching this show called HUNTER, HUNTED. And it was about the Kodiak grizzly bears and the hunter's that go to this little island off the coast of Alaska to hunt deer and wind up being the one's hunted by the bears. Blah, blah, blah...(don't want to bore you all with the details of the show, just cause I'm weird and love anything animal related..lol)

Anyway, I'm finally ready for bed and go to sleep. Now here's where it gets weird. 2 hours after falling asleep I remember waking up, bolting upright is more like it, and thinking "ohhhhh, that would make a great idea for a book..." (I cannot remember what idea that was, or even why I woke up the way I did..lol) but for some reason I have sense enough to open my dresser drawer, take out my handy journal (I've got about 30 stashed throughout the house) and write something down, then I proceed to pass out and remember nothing.

I wake up this morning knowing I'd bolted upright and that I'd had a good plot idea come to me for the 3rd book in my Death Series, but I didn't know what it was. I couldn't remember a thing, except that I'd written something. I'm thinking there is no way that I could have written anything legible at that time of morning, but I go find it and lo and behold not only is it legible it's a DAMN good story idea, and coincidentally enough, it involves Kodiak bears and conservationist's, but hey, it's a shifter story, so it's perfect!

Now how's that for a writer story? Hehehehe...

So you guys ever do anything quirky to get an idea down before you forget it?

Much love,
~~V.K.

Happy Fourth






I couldn't decide which picture to put up so I put them all up. Aren't they beautiful? Now I wish I was going to see fireworks half as pretty tomorrow, but they're probably not going to look anything like this. I went last year and yeah...lol, not even close. Still, it's the fourth and you better believe I'll be cheering along as I watch those little bottle rockets hit the air. LOL.

Happy Fourth everyone. I hope you have a wonderful day. I know I will. I'm going to be cooking and taking along a picnic. Maybe some fried chicken, potato salad and an apple pie. And because it's the holiday I'll actually do them from scratch. Oh wonders of wonders, Vivienne's gonna cook instead of order out for once. :p I'm sure my husband will appreciate it.

Have fun y'all, and whatever you do be safe.

Much love,

~~V.K.

Oh, and go friggin' watch Superman! Make sure that Hollywood makes that sequel. ;)

Le Sigh...

Le sigh...is he not just yummy looking? Seriously. *vbg*

So let's turn this thread away from the gruesome and towards something a lot more palatable.

Went and saw Superman last night. OMG guys and gals. That movie flat out rocks. The love story between Lois and Superman is so...sigh.

The action sequences are pulse racing, the special effects some of the best I've seen in a long time. This movie has easily gone into the top 3 of my most favorite movies ever. That's saying a lot. I don't usually walk away with these feelings of I want to go back and watch watch watch type feelings when I finish watching a movie. Usually one time is all I need and then I'm good. But this one. Oh man, you can bet I'll be going one more time at least while it's in theaters and then will probably be the first in line to buy it on DVD. LOL.

Brandon Routh..was it there to say about him. A viritual unknown who had to follow, of all people, Christopher Reeves as the new man in tights. He didn't do a great job, he did a FANTATIC job! If you close your eyes I swear you'd think it was Chris talking back to you..he's got the good ol' corn fed looks, probably helps that he is a native Iowa-n. This big, beautiful body...oh man. And those blue eyes they give him in the movie...wow. Trust me, y'all. Go see it. You won't regret it. Girls and guys can enjoy this. Guys for the non stop action, girls just to watch that gorgeous man strut around in his tights. Mmmmm...hehehehe.

One of the best movies hands down. ;)

YOU WHAT?!?!?!

Okay, writing erotica can sometimes take you into a whole new world of the unusual. I like to give my character's depth and not make them "me". Many of them do and say stuff that I don't do in real life. IE: BDSM. I'm into a little pain play, scratching, biting..etc. But I'm by no means a hardcore bondage type girl.

Still to be a good writer I think you need to think broad. You need to recognize that not everyone likes vanilla (I don't)..but sometimes they want a nice meld of the two. Sweet and spicy. That makes your character more true to life, adds depth and makes them unique.

So often times I'll go exploring on the internet for strange or unusual sexual fetish's. I never want to use any too over the top, as we all know some can get rather distasteful at best.

I really thought I couldn't be shocked by anything anymore. Boy was I wrong...

Apotemnophilia:

The guru of apotemnophilia, if there is one, is John Money, an expert in sexuality and professor emeritus at Johns Hopkins University. In 1977, he coined the word and defined the disorder as a kind of extreme sexual fetish. Apotemnophilia victims, he wrote, want to cut off their limbs so they can have better sex.

Bruno, who studies the amputation-obsessed community's coming-out in the age of the Internet, said three groups have developed. The "devotees" love amputees, and some are so obsessed that they'll stalk disabled women in shopping malls. The "wannabes" hope to become amputees and the "pretenders" use wheelchairs and crutches to feign disability.

I didn't put this here to make anyone laugh. It actually got me thinking. I mean how miserable a life would this be? The article went on to say that when people couldn't get their dream fulfilled of becoming an amputee they resort to extreme acts of violence to try and get a healthy limb taken off. IE: sitting with their legs on a track waiting for a train to pass by, cutting it off themselves.

This one just came as a big shock to me. And truthfully the whole thing makes me sad. How miserable to have to live your life thinking that an amputated limb is the key to happiness.

For you guys..is there a limit to what you think is sane and safe? How much is too much and when does a fetish go way over the line? For me, it doesn't get much worse than this. BDSM, while not my bag, is a perfectly comfortable act of love between two consenting adults. This however goes above and beyond what I'm comfortable with. I never thought I'd actually find my limit always figuring if you're a sane and able bodied person then it's your life, your body, your choice. How do you guys feel about it and in your own writing, what are the limits you're willing to go to?

Much love,
~~Viv K.

It's a pretty fascinating read from a medical perspective. But then again, I'm studying to become a nurse. *shrug* I dig these sorts of reads.
