The Writing World: Criticism

So I've been reading a lot about Twilight lately. No, this isn't a bash on Twilight; it's the opposite. I'm bashing those who bash the book. I'm not saying I'm the biggest fan of Twilight or that I even love the books. In some way, they hold a place in my heart because I read them as a teen, trying to make my way through middle school.

It was the exact type of novel I needed to make life better when reality wasn't.

The one thing that highly pisses me off is the fact that people get super upset over the fact that Meyer's refuses to accept criticism.

Hm...let's think about that for one moment here. If someone criticized the thing in life you loved most, how would you feel? Wouldn't you be pissed off. That's like people saying you suck at life. Harsh much. Yes.

I may not love the series, but I have enough respect to shut my mouth. And anytime I do speak my opinion, I would never blatanly call an author stupid or anything in the likes. That just makes me look like a terrible person, and for me wanting to become an author, why would any agent want to represent me?

Of course, I do believe I am allowed to say the series had great potential. Major potential in that case. But, the only thing I dislike is that she sold out on the 4th book for money; that's the one thing I can never agree with on another author.

And you know what, all of this talking about Twilight is making Meyer's more famous than she could expect.

I feel for her not wanting to know that people hated her novel so much. It was a part of her life. And when/if my book gets published, I'll probably take my first criticism very hard. The only difference I'll try and make is taking those criticisms for better. Hell, if someone writes a parody of my book, I'd be glad to read it! It just better as hell be written well!

PS. I couldn't imagine people coming up to me at signings, telling me my book was a mistake or something along that line. How do you respond to crap like that? "Oh, it's okay, you're making me famous anyways?" lol.

Meyer's might not be my cup of tea, but if I become an author one day, I don't want a bad rep as the hater of a most loved series. Everyone has their dreams, and she lived them. Kudos to her for being famous.

Rosacea & Acne: Coconut Oil

So I'm continuing onward with my Rosacea & Acne posts. I see that these are what bring in the most views.

Now this is going to sound weird. In order to moisturize your skin, you need to use a natural oil.

And of course, you're thinking "But that'll make my skin oily!"

Well, yes, of course it does at first. But think about this for a moment. Your skin produces oils. When you use your harsh cleaners on your face, you strip all the oils off your skin. Which is totally not good for you. So what better way can you balance the oils on your skin? By replacing the oils with a natural oil: coconut oil, to be exact.

When I first started learning about natural remedies, I became intrigued by what I found. For I was determined to heal my scarring rosacea. My face was beat red, and I was embarrassed by it.

So I dropped all commercial products, picked up coconut oil and clay, and I was deteremined to win.

First of all, my skin gets super dry in the winter. So dry that when I put…

My Experience in Healing Rosacea & Acne: Bentonite Clay

So I've never really discussed my regime I use for my face, or actually what I used to use on my face. Am I confusing you already? Good. Because now you shall read on.

Most of you already know I have rosacea. It was very bad to begin with. There's a photo on one of my posts showing the pure redness across my nose and chin. Along with that, I had so many pimples and lots of cystic acne.

Now what do I think caused it? My overabuse of my skin using commercial products. My last post I tried to explain why these face washes are terrible for our skin. I mean, who wants to slatherPPG 15 Stearyl Ether all over their face? They use it in face wash, so why not? Would you still put it on your face, considering its a toxin? I sure as hell wouldn't. So what makes you think that face wash is safe.

Oh yeah, cause the big ole' FDA claims so. Well, guess what? The FDA doesn't give two f*cks about your acne. They need you to develop that acne in order to make them money through the Pha…

My Experience With Proactiv: Rosacea & Acne

Do those Proactiv comercials tempt you? Have you considered more than once on trying it? Are you on the borderline of giving into that temptation?

Well, please STOP, and read my story first.

I've used Proactiv, I have experience with the product, and I want to share my story with you guys. But I must backtrack almost 4 years ago to when I actually used it.

Actually, I'm going to backtrack a little farther back than that...

Well, here it goes:

When I was twelve-years-old, I had the most perfect, flawless skin a girl would die for, literally. I rarely had to use makeup because my skin was seriously that perfect. And it stayed that way for a good long time. I was selfish back then, not realizing how damn lucky I was. I can't imagine how many girls envied me.

But then, I got sucked into the world of society and started to feel the need to wear makeup, constantly. That was my first mistake. After I began wearing makeup as a need to feel "pretty," I started to develop a…
