The Camp was buzzing with chatter and noise while Campers scattered around. It was the end of summer what meant that a lot of the kids would leave later this afternoon the magical borders of Camp Half-Blood to return to the mortal world.
Phone numbers and e-mails were swapped, some younger kids had arms full of self-made friendship bracelets from every new friend they made and bags were packed.
“This sucks.”I commented from my place in the shadows while I buried my head in Caspian’s shoulder.
The Nyx boy who stole my heart gave a small smile as he wrapped an arm around my waist to pull me even closer to him than I already was.
“Tell me about it.”he muttered. “I only have the summers here at Camp to spend with you and this year you were send on that Martha and George quest followed by a trip to the infirmary. Technically, Olympus still owns us two weeks.”.
“You’re forgetting the other holidays.”I rem

Do you want to build a snowman?
- The Lyrical Diaries –
With a sigh I trooped together with Damon and Stefan in front of Dahlia’s locked bedroom door. Neither of us had seen the youngest sibling of the Salvatore family in three days and nights. So to say we were getting a tad worried, would be an understatement.
“Come on Dahl…”Stefan tried to reason with his twin. “You can’t do this every time Klaus decides to skip town without giving you a reason.”.
“Oh, he better has a good reason.”I growled under my breath which caused Damon to smirk.
“Stefan is right Dahl.”my boyfriend decided to be supportive for once. “Klaus wants you to sulk about him not being here. You’re playing right into his cards by wallowing in pity.”.
Again it stayed quiet at the other side of the door.
“Okay, move.”I told the boys who backed away from the door and leaned against the wall across from it

Fandom: The Blacklist
Couple: Donald Ressler x Kira Harper
They say that graduating high school is the point where your life begins. From then on you’re not just a kid anymore but a young adult who needs to set their future. College or University is the point of no return. You decided to be right here and now you have to go through with it. Though that all sounds easy enough, there’s nothing easy about it.
In a few days I would leave for the Academy with the eye on reaching my goal of becoming an FBI agent. That same day my girlfriend Kira would leave for boot camp since it was her dream to join the army just like her dad.
What it all made complicated though was the fact that Kira had been living with me for over a year now. When her parents got murdered, my parents had taken her in. The fact of leaving each other now made the parting blow much more difficult.
“Maybe I shouldn’t leave.”Kira mused as she drew all sorts of p

As a son of Nyx I’m used to hiding in my cabin during the day. But as excited cheers echoed through the Camp, I couldn’t help to stumble out of my bed and to throw on some clothes that would protect my sensitive skin against the sun.
The reason? My girlfriend Indy.
A small two weeks ago she had been assigned to a quest with a Hermes kid in the lead and an Athena Camper as back-up. Apparently Martha and George had won this cruise out of the blue and since the two snakes were desperate for a break of Hermes, they accepted the offer. Of course it had been a trap and my girlfriend got picked as one of the three that had to save their asses.
Today had been the thirteenth day of the quest, and I hadn’t heard a word from Indy since she left which worried me. She was a daughter of Iris for Nyx’s sake! She held the Camp-record texting and typing. No communication meant trouble. Trouble my mind couldn’t handle.
I quickly put on my sungl

As some of you may have noticed, I've been a bit inactive on DA for the past few days... That has of course a reason and that reason came in the form of a small black cat which we named Booh
We picked him up last Thursday and now he's bonding with our other cat Flash and our three dogs. Flash adores his new brother, though he can be a little... Brute sometimes. But what did you expect when you bring a five week old kitten into the life of a cat who's already ten months old. Booh is just so small and Flash sometimes gets carried away in his enthousiasm of playing that he forgets how strong he actually is. Booh answers with a yelp when it's too much on which Flash starts to lick as an apology. Really, they're so cute together.
For the ones who have me on Facebook and/or Instagram, you guys already have seen a picture of my little ninja ^^
This week (and begin next week too) I'll be inactive too since I'm going to Rock Werchter with my cousins for four days. For the ones who don't know Belgium and its culture well, Rock Werchter is one of the music festivals we have to offer.
Normally the Foo Fighters were headlining on day one, but since Dave Grohl broke his leg during a concert, they had to cancel. My cousin Cindy wasn't too happy about that (she's a big fan) and I was actually seeing foward to see them again live. Yes, again. Cindy and me already saw them live during another music festival some summers back.
So no Foo Fighters... But Royal Blood and Faith No More instead and The Chemical Brothers have been pushed back so they will be closing day one off.
A full report of Rock Werchter will follow somewhere next week
Then on to the novel writing...
It goes slow... Very slow. Mostly because real life caught up with me and don't have that much time to spend in front of my laptop as I wish too, but there's also another reason.
A few days back I got another negative response from one of the Publishers I contacted. I know the world of writing is a hard one and if you can't handle rejection then you should turn around and run. That's exactly why I've been hiding my writing for so long to begin with since I have this fear of failing. But then again, trying isn't the first step to failing but to success.
With that motto in my head, I dared to be bolt and send out my manuscript to pubishers. Still, no matter how thick your skin or armor is, it hurts when someone says 'no'. I try not to let it get to me, I mean, I still have six to seven chances on a 'yes'. Yet my progress on book 2 is suffering under that one 'no'. Because... What happens with my story - all six books- if not one Publisher is interested?
One of my friends (who read the first 7 chapters of my manuscript) firmly answered: 'Then we start our own Publishing Agency.'.
Of course she was joking around, but it caused me to think. If no Publiser wants me, then I can go to one of those self-publishing sites... But that asks for a big investment (money I don't have) and you get little to nothing in return.
And that brings me back to plan B: a blog or second DA account where I post the chapters weekly or so. That of course means I will have to translate everything in English but hey! It worked for Fifty Shades of Shame, euhm Grey, so why wouldn't it work for me?
Which brings us to plan C: if no Publishers is interested in the Muse Academy series, maybe they are in one of my other works.
Don't get me started on the amount of ideas I have for novels.... I have a whole folder full of them
So what's the game plan? I keep working on MA book 2, but start writing book 1 of another series I have in my head as back-up idea. I can't say too much about those series yet... Only that it's based on the legend of The Fountain of Youth and the twelve Constallations
