Thanks Kate Cavanaugh @CavanaughWrites

I found this writer on YouTube by the name of Kate Cavanaugh. She’s a young writer who wants to be an author. A writer who makes a living. A paid writer. I’m a paid writer, but I don’t make a living off it yet. YET!

I like her videos because she’s genuine. I discovered her during April’s NaNoWriMo Camp. I think I would like being in her cabin for July’s camp.

It was because of watching her videos, I decided to be more purposeful with my writing. At the time, I came across her videos I was working on The Crofton Triangle. But it was her that made me see I could work on multiple projects at the same time. Not that I didn’t know I couldn’t do this, I just chose not to. I felt like I should dedicate my time to getting one thing done at a time. No wonder it takes me such a long time to get a WIP out that status and into completed.

Now that I’m working on multiple writing projects at a time, I feel a sense of accomplishment. I’ve set daily word goals for each project and now I don’t feel overwhelmed about getting it all done. If I write more than the daily, then I feel like I’m a step closer. If I only write the daily goal, I feel I’ve still worked on my project instead of thinking about working on my project, than feeling guilty that I thought about working on my project, but didn’t. LOL

I started writing short stories as a kid, but my interest became greater when I learned screenwriting. I love writing screenplays, but I didn’t think I would get anywhere with it, so I switched to writing books/novels. Of which I’ve been successful as a small independent writer. But it was Kate C, who made me want to write screenplays again. I saw her video on attempting to write a screenplay based on one of her book writing projects. And I was like HEY, I CAN DO THAT! Two of my books are base off their screenplay counterparts! I’ve had this idea swirling in my head for years, but it being a book just didn’t seem to fit it. I’m going to write it as a screenplay. Back to my old stomping grounds, one could say.

So THANKS Kate C! I appreciate you and your videos!

Social Media Toxicity

With all the drama that happened within the beauty community, I have to question if I want to go back to my YouTube channel or start the new I was thinking about.  🤔

Social media is toxic.  There are so many interactions.  Social media has allowed for one person to expand their interactions ten fold.  Whereas before, when I was growing up in a PRE SOCIAL MEDIA (🦕)  world, my interactions only went as far as the activity.  Meaning…I met people in school, church, from my family, or work.  That’s how far my extensions went.  Now, social media allows people to have a reach far beyond.  And this is hard for a person like me - an INTJ. 🥺

Hurt people, hurt people. 😒 And there are a lot of HURT people on the internet.  They speak willy-nilly at people with no regard there is another human being on the other side of that computer screen. 👀 Typing thugs.  Computer crazies.  People who just type and send before they think.  And I will admit some of the comments are funny af, others are sad and disgusting. 

Everyone has an opinion, the thing is, is before we weren’t getting everyone’s opinion.  Now we get the benefit of everyone chiming in on everything. 🤦🏽‍♀️  Perhaps why I’m selective in what I watch and listen to.

🗣 Has our society become more toxic because of social media?  Chime in. 🛎 What are your thoughts? 

Are you like me where years ago I began to shun social media and limited my social media accounts?  I saw how dark having so much social interaction could be.  Or are you okay with where you’re at in the social media realm?

🗣 Restoration of the YouTube Beauty Community

Let’s here it for the adults in the room.  👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽

Despite the fact we all want the tea, I think it was brave and a necessary move on the part of Jeffree Star and Tati Westbrook to say hey were the adults in the room, let’s stop this drama and the craziness.  Kudos to them. 🤔

It doesn’t mean that James Charles was right. 🥺 Nor does it mean he checked them.  It just means they see how destructive this behavior is and it wasn’t worth the effort to continue to go back and forth. 😩 This could have went on for weeks! 🤦🏽‍♀️

We all know James Charles is a lair. 🤭  He’s 19.  What 19 year old doesn’t lie? We also know he has some serious mental issues he’s going to need to work out.  There were warning signs, things everyone saw and chose to ignore.  The price of MONEY, FAME and NOTORIETY.  It can float to anyone’s head, and it could certainly float to a 19 year old kid who has NEVER had anything.  Especially ATTENTION. 🙃

Well that said, now maybe the Beauty Community can now heal and get back to the business of doing what they do best.  💄💋

Whew!  What an interesting year 2019 has been… 🤯

What’s next? 🤐

😳 And 👏🏽 the 👏🏽 DRAMA 👏🏽CONTINUES!!!! YouTube Beauty Community is a SOAP OPERA 🤦🏽‍♀️

Tati said this.

James said that.

Jeffree is gonna say what?????

This isn’t about makeup anymore.  It’s about money.  It’s about fame.  It’s about subscribers.  It’s a fight for YouTube territory. 🤔

It’s a fight for belief.   Who to believe? Who not to believe?  😒

Me, personally…they ALL have issues.  😂

🗣 Tati is the oldest.  She needs to upload a makeup video and not be bothered about what a silly little 19 year old boy is doing.  James won’t be 20 until next week.   She needs to walk away from this. 🚶🏽‍♀️ Like leave it alone.  She also needs to walk away from Jeffree.  Just stick to the makeup.  Don’t ruin the brand over this crap that is landing at the front door.  Girl, you are married.  🧖🏽‍♀️ Gotta whole husband and y’all out here dealing with this mess with a 19 year old CHILD, KID 👶🏼….that’s what he is to someone her age.

THIS IS HIGH SCHOOL BULLSHIT! 💯 He said, she said.

Jeffree stays in some kind of drama.  He thrives off of it.  It keeps his name in the spotlight.  He got himself involved.  Somewhere in there he wanted to cancel James.  What is Jeffree’s REAL motive? 🤯   We will find out tomorrow what Jeffree has to say about all this.

James is in a literal online fight with two 30+ adults.  GOOT LAWD! 🙃

Stay tuned!  The shit will continue! 😂😂😂😂😂
