Welcome! I'm Riv Re, teenager and aspiring author. I post Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday. Tuesdays are for book reviews; Thursdays are for a weekly meme called "Character Dolls," which showcases character depictions I made online; and on Sundays I just wing it.
This blog is for my writing misadventures, my reviews, ramblings, and rants. My favorite genre is fantasy, so expect a lot of the unusual.

Warning: I've got an awful sense of humor. Don't blame me if you keel up and die from reading the jokes I crack.
Notice: I hold no responsibility for any deaths caused by previously mentioned jokes.

Enjoy and happy reading!

It Always Happens to Someone Else Until It Doesn't

I haven't been on much lately, and I don't know when I will be on next. My computer went off the deep end, officially, so I've currently only got brotherly laptops. If I won your contest, feel free to e-mail me, as I do my best to check them. But, I won't be checking my blogroll very much.

But that's the good news.

A old friend of mine recently passed away. We weren't particularly close, but I knew her for a long time. This is going to sound cliche`, but she was always smiling. Her life sucked, but she was happy.
And you know how you read books where the MC thinks she's dreaming?
Not such a far-fetched idea, as I sit here.

You might pause now, give her a moment of respect, and then go on your merry way. Because, of course, this is a story happening to someone else. Because the freak accidents, they're always someone else. They never happen to you. Until they do.
So yeah, you're going to get on with life, because I'm sitting here in NY, and you're my reader over in China, or Italy or Azerbaijin, or Denmark or Australia or Israel or Finland or the UK or even the US or Canada.
Because it always happens to someone else. And then it doesn't.

So laugh, love, and live life. You never know.

  1. I'm so sorry. What a sad thing to happen. I truly hope your friend rests in peace and that you find some peace as well. I had a friend lose her life tragically, and even though our friendship was new, it affected me very deeply. Things like this make life seem so very fragile.
