Zombies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ARGH!

Published 16/03/2014 by Lily Crussell

I promise myself that I will work on a particular project until it is finished. I then get distracted. I’m as bad as an over excited puppy!

Ok, so it doesn’t have pink hair, but the eyes are right lol.

Anyway (do you see what I mean?!? Distracted!) I posted the whole of one of my novels on Wattpad here; http://www.wattpad.com/story/2280395-love-on-the-run-from-zombies

So far there have been 14,309 reads (yeah, I couldn’t believe it either as it’s been there a while!) and several people were saying on there that they wanted the sequel. The half written sequel that I started years ago. The half written sequel that I promised to FINISH years ago! Well I went back and read what was there, and I got excited about the characters again. Really excited. So looks like I’ll be working on that YAY! Hopefully will have a chapter or two to post over the next few days (if I don’t get distrac….look shiny!)

Yes, I’m a nightmare, I annoy even myself!

Fem

Published 15/03/2014 by Lily Crussell

MMMMmmmmmkay people, I have to clear up a few things as I’ve just had several people (none of you lovelies btw) trolling me for my opinions.

Feminism is NOT man hating. If someone hates men and identifies themselves as a feminist, these are two separate things.

Females of the world; Do you want to be treated as well as men? Do you disagree with being treated like an object? Ding ding ding, you’re a feminist. We welcome the male feminists too – this is not an exclusive club for people without a Y chromosome. Men can be feminists and should be! They have mothers, sisters, aunts etc etc that I’m sure they love and would hate to be treated badly.

I read an article about how few women would identify themselves as Feminist due to the bad reputation the word has gained. Bad press has a LOT to answer for! I’m a feminist. I love men. I don’t want to be superior to them, I just want the same money for the same job, I want to valued, I want to be judged on my qualities as a person and not on my reproductive organs. I don’t want men to think it’s ok to talk to me like I’m an object. I don’t want them beeping their car horns at me and making lewd gestures and comments. I also don’t want to be called a ‘stuck up *****’ when I object to being treated this way. I don’t want special favours because I’m a girl. I do want to be able to go where I want, when I want, wearing whatever I want. I don’t want to have a curfew because ‘it’s not safe’ to go out after a certain time.

A lot of people think we have equality – but we don’t. The LGBT community doesn’t, women don’t, certain cultures don’t. It’s a work in progress, but it is definitely worth fighting for. Being against racism isn’t shameful (it’s awesome) so why is being a feminist?

Say it loud and proud people. Stand on the roof of a building (be safe obv) and yell ‘I am a feminist!’ Men and women or whatever gender you identify as. We’re all people, we’re all dumb, brilliant, amazing, silly, lovely, fun, generous, wicked, wry, messy creatures and as such that is what we should see. Human. Not female, black, gay etc. Just Human.

Lecture over. Your homework for today is to go out into the world and be AWESOME

Love and Hugs

Lily Crussell.

Dog Days

Published 07/03/2014 by Lily Crussell

One of my favourite people on earth is going through hell at the moment. Her dog is suffering from Kidney failure and I was hoping maybe someone out there had been through it and could offer advice? She is the most wonderful person and I don’t know how to help her or what to suggest.

 

 

WOAH! EXCITED!

I post books on Wattpad, along with poetry, and don’t tend to look at the number of reads as it didn’t seem to change dramatically. BUT! The last time I checked the number of reads for ‘Love on the run (from Zombies)’ it was at 3,000 ish reads.

IT’S NOW AT 13,700! How did this happen? How did I not notice?
So appreciative of everyone that has read it and commented. Please go take a gander and let me know what you think as I can’t improve without feedback!

Also there will be a second book in the series…at some point. It’s half written, but needs a lot of work (the story of my life!)

My work on Wattpad;

Little Blue Slips; http://www.wattpad.com/story/4912874-little-blue-slips
‘When Shannon starts at a new school, she is worried about the usual concerns; making friends, getting lost and keeping up with her work, but when she becomes the fixation of the school psycho and little blue slips begin appearing in her locker, all she cares about it making it through each day.’

Love on the Run (from zombies); http://www.wattpad.com/story/2280395-love-on-the-run-from-zombies
‘Rain has loved Jack for as long as she can remember, but it takes the zombie apocalypse for him to notice her.’

Stupid and Crazy; http://www.wattpad.com/story/12046297-stupid-and-crazy
‘It would never work. He’s a smoker, I’m anti-smoking. He’s worships Jack Daniels and I’m a teetotal-er. He has a son, I don’t want kids. He’s beautiful, talented and popular, I’m none of those things. He’s a Hollywood movie star and I’m…well…’

Oh Loki, you don’t know the half of it!

Wattpad Update

Published 24/02/2014 by Lily Crussell

I’ve been adding several new chapters to ‘Stupid and Crazy’ http://www.wattpad.com/story/12046297-stupid-and-crazy
‘It would never work. He’s a smoker, I’m anti-smoking. He’s worships Jack Daniels and I’m a teetotal-er. He has a son, I don’t want kids. He’s beautiful, talented and popular, I’m none of those things. He’s a Hollywood movie star and I’m…well…’

There are more chapters, but I’m hesitant to put them up as I haven’t had ANY comments or feedback. It’s something I wrote about 18 months ago.
Take a gander and let me know what you think…

So tired!

Published 31/08/2013 by Lily Crussell

Sleeping is clearly over rated as far as my body is concerned. I woke up at some stupid time, did some crunches and junk, had breakfast, went to the gym (it’s a 40 min walk each way) Actually jogged at the gym! Grocery shopping….and now…the SLUMP to shame all other slumps.

For the first time in about 3 million years (no exaggeration ;p) I can write, but at present I am so tired that just typing this is wearing me out. Someone come chuck a bucket of cold water at me!

In other news;

ImageSqueal! Also, poor Thor had 3 copies of his cover left, but this was the last LOKI! Mwhahahaahhahaha! The problem with shopping alone is that you can’t really get away with the fangirl squealing when you see things like this in the shop. I think my town knows what I’m like by now though. My Precious……

 

Thinking I might put some more work up on Wattpad, but not sure anyone would read it? Losing ANY enthusiasm for the idea of getting published, it is clearly not going to happen (mostly due to a lack of dinero as editing etc is a joke. And ink. Paper. Postage. Envelopes. Most expensive of all is probably my sanity, but can you really lose what you never had?)

Apart from that I haven’t done much. I discovered Tumblr (where have you been all my life?!?) and now have even more distractions to stop me from writing. The worst have to be the pics from ‘Only Lovers Left Alive’ As the great George Takei would say; ‘Oh my!’

Love and hugs

 

OH ACTUALLY, here is a snippet of what I am working on as I doubt it will EVER be finished. Procrastination thy name is Lily.

‘I’m not sure how long I lay there, soaked to the skin, shivering and panting, trying to concentrate on my breathing and not the phantoms of my beloved. When I managed to pull myself together, I sat up and looked around. The world was a different place in the rain. It was hard to make anything out with the pelting drops hitting your eyes and skin- making you blink like you’re having a fit. I made out a figure before me; a tiny coat that had once been bright red, now darkened from the wet and patches of dirt. Patent leather shoes that clicked as they got closer, a tiny face with round cheeks, dark lashes, dark eyes and a curtain of dark knotted hair across the shoulders. The tiny girl approached me with faltering steps. I watched in silence, awed that she had the guts to approach anyone and not run screaming into the nearest building. Was she real?

          “Hello.” I said quietly, my voice cracking and catching as I panted.

She smiled faintly, blinking the water from her eyes. She couldn’t have been more than 8 years old, though she may have been older, small from malnutrition and the hardships she had probably seen.

          “What are you doing out here? You could get hurt.” I pulled myself up onto my feet and walked closer slowly, trying to not startle her.

          “You look cold.” she said in a small voice, her rose bud lips red from the bitter wind.

She looked like a mistreated china doll, with her hair in disarray around her face.

          “It’s not the warmest day.” I said nonchalantly.

I hadn’t had many conversations lately and felt out of practice. Was it still ok to moan about the weather? We didn’t have school, crushes or our parents to bitch about and I didn’t think listing atrocities was appropriate for someone so young.’

 

Being the genius that I am, I’ve started on the follow up before the first is even finished. I am so smart 😦
