Writing About Life

Wow, it's been a long time since I wrote a post here. Long story short, I've been living in South Carolina for almost 3 months now. It's more quiet than where I used to live in northern NJ- so quiet that I need a White Noise app to help me sleep and/or concentrate. 

Yesterday was the 2nd anniversary of the role-play where I eventually created my original characters. I didn't join in the fun too much this time, because of stupid useless female problems and not feeling up to it. I'm hoping to put up a oneshot on the 2nd anniversary of the creation of Svied but I'm also protective of it now to the point where I try not to post as much to advert getting the reposters and the  plagiarizers.

I also wanted to write that I wrote a review for a new book about writing. Because I'm on their newsletter, they've requested more reviews from their fanbase. So, I took it upon myself to write a review.

Real Advice- Because we aren't writing robots
"I purchased this when it was on sale after it's release, and it's truly a breath of fresh air. After reading through many articles of advice online, that solely tell us to write no matter what- I've found that most of that advice, doesn't work for me. This is the book that is real about the struggles of being a writer and doesn't harp on the idea that one person's way of doing things will fit for everyone else."

I'm hoping to make it so I can sell my original art as prints. I need a real name for an Etsy shop and elsewhere, because my tumblr username apparently has very adult and embarrassing connotations. Thanks a lot sex-obsessed society! *facepalm*

That username (cowgirl326) was created in 2014- I was into westerns (or going out of it to be honest), and the numbers had significance to me. In the American number format for writing dates, the premiere date for How to Train Your Dragon, and someone I was a fan of before (Johnny Crawford) I was into Dragons, have the same date (birthday or premiere).

As for the art shop, I hope to have it up by the end of the year.

Red Pepper, Onion, and bacon burgers

I haven't updated this blog in months, but since I made my own recipe for burgers- I've decided to share it.

1/2 pound ground beef/pork/turkey/(I'd say even the fake meat for vegetarians- yeah- I know it doesn't taste like real meat but..for those that haven't tried real meat and are used to the soy protein- go for it)
1/4 cup Diced red pepper
1/4 cup Diced vidalia onion 
Few drops Tabasco 
1/4 cup Yellow mustard 
1/4 teaspoon himilayan salt 

1/4 Bacon bits 
1 egg
About 1/2 cup of Panko bread crumbs

Put the ground beef in a mixing bowl. Add salt, mustard and tabasco and knead with hands. Pour in the red pepper, onion, bacon bits, egg and Panko bread crumbs and mix. 

Form into burgers and freeze so they will keep their shape when cooking. 

Cook on grill 10-15 minutes. Add cheddar cheese if you want, and melt on top. 

Take off grill and let rest for 5 minutes. 

Eat and Enjoy! 

Optional Sauce

Tabasco (a few drops)
