A New Blog Name Revealed

Oh wow…wow…WOW! Has it REALLY been THIS long since I posted on here?  I’m terribly sorry for letting you down by not updating my stories or letting you know what’s going on with me. I know this is

…and I’ll try to not let you down again.

I guess part of the reasons why I haven’t written anything is because I’ve hit writer’s block. I still remember how I want my stories to end up –  but I have no clue on how to get there from where I am at this point in my stories. Real life (of course) tends to get in the way as well but that’s no excuse either, since I know many writers who ARE able to update their stories with small children and everything else that goes on in life. I guess you can say that I’m not inspired to write right now…

Which kind of brings me to the point of this post. I’ve decided that the best way to get myself re-inspired – is to change the direction a little bit of my blog and maybe just share with you more – instead of only posting when I have updates. How does that sound? Maybe with a little feedback (hopefully) from you, it might inspire me to sit my ass down and write?

The first thing I’ve decided to do was change the name of my blog. It’s no longer called, The Fanfiction Vixen…I’ve decided to call it, Inside Iamerika. (Those with dirty minds…get your mind out of the gutter! LOL) I’m not going to be sharing what goes inside my body…hahaha! I will be looking inside my mind to find out what’s in it. (My friends would tell you…it’s not a lot. LOL) But au contraire…I always have a lot on my mind…I just don’t voice it, that’s all.

I guess you could call Inside Iamerika a place where I not only share stories (which are in my mind as well), but a place where I talk about anything at all! From books, to news, to movies, to TV shows, to music, to…yada, yada, yada…the list goes on. I hope you don’t mind if I share my thoughts with you.

Let’s get this party started shall we?

The first thing that’s been on my mind lately is…the final Sookie book, Dead Ever After and all the drama that has been going on in the SVM fandom because of it. Let me be the first to admit…I haven’t finished the book. I tried…but the book is so horribly written…so disappointing…so many adjectives, I just can’t describe how I feel. I knew the spoilers ahead of time (of course, since I posted them on E&SL) but I decided to read it with my own eyes. After EVERY. SINGLE. PAGE, I wanted to shove that book up CH’s ass. It made me feel angrier and angrier. It wasn’t the outcome that pissed me off…it was what she did to Eric Northman and Sookie Stackhouse (two of my favorite characters ever) in the process that did it. But I’m not going to talk about what happened, because it just pisses me off all over again. Let’s just say…I will (cue Taylor Swift’s song, “…never ever, ever, ever get back together.”) NEVER EVER EVER BUY ANOTHER BOOK BY CH AGAIN!

As a reader who enjoyed books and shows where the writers write stories about people in situations that seem impossible but are made possible…I really thought the outcome would be different. And it should have been…all the hints she said she dropped about Sookie’s HEA were either non-existant or SO disguised…a person would have to have X-ray vision to see it. I personally think she knew what a cash cow and huge fandom Eric had, and decided to ride it out for as long as possible. I know she says she’s not in it for the money…but she’s wrong. I could probably post links to numerous interviews where she made some sort of joke or reference to the money she earns, but I won’t, because I’m over it and it will only feed the trolls. She can bathe in her money now. Trust me. It will be the last big money she will ever earn. When an author loses the trust of her readers…she’s done. If this all makes me an “entitled reader” – so be it. If this were some food I ordered in a restaurant, I would be asking the manager for my money back for the entire series. Instead, they make good doorstops and paper weights.  😛

Anyways…enough about that. I just wanted to vent and to share with you what I think should’ve been. In anticipation of the book (pre-spoiler reveal), I got Kittrose (an infamous artist who loves Eric and Sookie) to create this stunning artwork depicting how it should have been – for us over at E&SL

Even though I spent money on it…I still think it’s money well spent. It’s beautiful and could inspire so many fanfic writers to write (maybe me too eventually).

I’ve been burnt twice now in two different fandoms. Do I have poor taste or what? After talking to a friend of mine who is in the same situation as me…I decided reverse psychology is how I should go. I’m going to start fangirling over couples I HATE. Think that will work?

Anyways…thought I would let you know I’m still alive, although I do need help getting inspired again. Can you please hook a girl up? Thanks for reading!

Until the next time, Insiders (I think that’s what I’ll name you, my dear followers.)!

  1. That’s an incredible picture, looks like they are walking off into the sunset…I share your reaction to the crappy book which shall be nameless. The only good thing that has come out of it is a number of fanfiction stories have been created to right the wrongs of the book.
    Look forward to hearing you ideas on all things interesting to you and hope this stirs your muse back into action.

    • Thank you! I hope this does the trick too. 🙂

      I still want to read the awesome endings my fellow writers have already written because I think we all deserve a happy ending compared to what we got. And Sookie is settling…not something I enjoy reading at all.

  2. oh Erika, I know your pain. Thanks for the update. I’ve been busy tearing my hair out over my new obsession SOA. Tara in jail! Anyway, what other couple did you ship that didn’t work out?

    • Yes, that is why I can’t even write about J/T either. I hate how they’ve made Tara end up. She’s supposed to be the voice of reason…not another a druggie. It makes her no better than Wendy was at the beginning of the show.

      The other couple I shipped was a soap opera couple, Jonathan and Tammy. When the actors both left the show at the same time…how did they have them leave…? By KILLING off Tammy of course! Grrr…it’s been over 5 years and I’m STILL bitter over it and haven’t watched her death scene. There was no reason for her death. They could have walked off into the sunset together.

      I actually do like another couple too…on Dallas. I’m really beginning to like John Ross and Pamela Rebecca. (J.R.’s son and Cliff Barnes’s daughter.) But I know they aren’t going to be happy either…because it’s Dallas and nobody is happy on there. LOL That is why I think I should ship couples I hate from now on…they are always the ones who are happy for any length in time. LOL
