The “Bear” Necessities

Up until this week whenever I thought about bears this song popped into my head—> 

And then something TERRIFYING happened, and I wasn’t even drinking! (GASP!) A crash echoed outside SO. FREAKING. LOUDLY. that I was convinced of two things: 1. Someone was trying to break in. And 2. Someone was trying to break in.

In those brief seconds, I also discovered that if my life were a horror film, I would be the moron who ran TOWARD the guy with the axe. HAVE I LEARNED NOTHING FROM MICHAEL MYERS? OR FREDDY-GODFORSAKEN-KRUEGER? Holy MOTHER, even the Scream franchise should have prepared me for this. Run away from the bone chilling sounds. RUN AWAY FOOL.

Instead of cowering under my bed (like BOTH of my traitor cats did, BTW), I ran downstairs (SANS weapon, oh the HUMANITY!), flicked the lights on and bravely threw the blinds back–ready to stare danger in its masked face. What I would have done if some axe-wielding maniac was in fact, standing on my porch, I’ll never know.

Because….I saw this: 

 But in my mind it registered like this:

And I’m all “Awww, a fuzzy wittle bear-bear.” So I got the moron urge to go outside and take a picture, and then this happened:

Not really, but close. So my mind IMMEDIATELY thought of this:

Which finally made me do THIS:

To which, I ran back inside and locked the door.

I promise these are the only ferocious wild creatures I’ll photograph from now on:

Have a great weekend <333333’s.

 Cheers to all you badass writers out there, being brave every single day. Don’t think you’re awesome?

YOU stare rejection in the face and laugh.

Sure, sometimes you may cry, but guess what? YOU STILL PUT YOURSELF OUT THERE. Which makes you one helluva badass. Just sayin. XOXO

Thank you?

Do you have any characters that people will LOVE to HATE in your manuscript? To REALLY give your main character depth, don’t be afraid to stank them up a bit. No one is perfect after all. XOXO

Looks like we’ve got a ‘situation’ here.

Know anyone in real life that’s annoying? No? Then take the night off and watch some reality tv for some annoying character traits. (Not that I’m promoting embarrassing Jersday night television shows on MTV….)

This was just for fun, I couldn’t resist. Happy Thursday XO.
