Since I’m actively training to become a paranormal investigator, here’s some Liber Nox Axel being tormented by spirits.

You know, part of the reason I came back to dreamwidth in the first place is so I could have a place to gush about my AUs and I haven’t even really done that yet I should probably make some posts about them.

Says the paranormal investigator to a room full of witches in a metaphysical bookstore.

Check-In – Day 26  
Sometimes, life is a dungeon crawl. Sometimes, it's more of a match-three puzzle game. So ... what's it been for you today? What have you been doing?

— Thinking. Maybe a little, maybe a lot.
— Writing.
— Planning and / or researching.
— Editing.
— Sending things to the beta.
— Posting!
— Relaxing, taking a break, etc.
— Other stuff-ing. Look at the comment.

Question for today: On a scale of 1 to 10, how disgusted do you usually get with your first draft of a longer work?

Any Pride and Prejudice or Lost in Austen active communities?

That feel when you think up the perfect username, but it's already taken on literally every web platform that you use. Because I sure as hell think "illuminaughty" is a clever handle and apparently SO DOES SOMEONE ELSE.

What's even worse is that the username here on dreamwidth is just a blank journal that has never been updated. I can't even request it until the original owner deletes it and dreamwidth purges it.

update on a paranormal experience  
About a month ago, I posted that I heard something roaring/howling/whatever from somewhere in town. After the paranormal class, my mom and I were talking about weird shit that had been happening, and I brought up that particular incident, and she proceeded to tell me something that really... makes a lot of sense.

So, let me tell you about Muggins the bear.

cut for mistreatment of an animal )

I do think this could be what I heard roaring that night. It makes sense that an animal that spent so many years on the gorge would be bound there in spirit as well, and my heart goes out to this poor bear that she may be able to find peace.

Name: Zhelana
Age: 35
Location: Atlanta
Gender: Female
Languages: English and a little Spanish

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I'm a writer and a photographer living in a small house with a husband, two dogs and two cats. I collect things like tshirts and stuffed animals. I like audiobooks while I drive, which I do a lot because I'm in the SCA. I have a youtube channel unboxing lootcrates. I have schizoaffective disorder, but the mood symptoms are largely dealt with with meds and it's mostly just psychotic symptoms now.

Top 5 Fandoms:
seaQuest DSV, Firefly, MCU, HP, Star Trek

I mostly post about: Day to day life which currently includes a partial hospitalization program, writing, volunteering at an aquarium and zoo, as well as volunteering reading to a 3rd grade boy at his school. I'm learning to play golf, and learning to play the recorder. You may eventually get youtubes of me playing the recorder. But first I need to learn how to read music. lol. I go swimming fairly often. I'm in the SCA. Occasionally I get off my but and go to Synagogue. I'm a photographer. I also talk about what I'm reading, which at the moment and for the foreseeable future, includes reading the entire Bible one chapter a night and summing it up in a few sentences of "WTF?" once a week on my Wednesday reading meme. I also post music every Monday, and writing every Tuesday, and unboxing videos every Saturday. I'm also in the middle of a 365 day meme, which will not actually take me 365 days because I keep skipping questions for being too stupid to bother with.

I rarely post about: politics (although every once in awhile it comes up), my husband's dysfunctional family,

My last three posts were about: Weekly reading meme, my partial hospitalization program, taking the dog to the vet, and writing, considering starting a 101 in 1001 list.

How often do you post?: Daily

How about commenting?: I read every day, multiple times a day, but I'm not always the best about commenting. I'll comment if I have something to add, but I won't comment just to comment on every single entry (and tend to get annoyed with people who do that),

becoming a paranormal investigator + a small ghostly update  
So tonight my mom and I took a paranormal investigation class. It was a make-up class, because we didn't find out about it initially until after it had already started, so my mom and I and a few others sat in on this make-up class so we could catch up with the rest of the group. Tonight was mostly an introduction to paranormal investigating and what the equipment is and how it works, so there's not really a whole lot to say about that.

We did get to have a quick spirit box session, and the responses that came out of the device were so fucking clear that it's unreal.

There is another class tomorrow night that we're attending as well, in which we'll actually be investigating the basement of the building we were in (it's a metaphysical bookstore) so I'll report more about it tomorrow after we get home.

We just got home a few minutes ago, and I already had a paranormal experience.

I keep my bedroom door closed because I don't want the animals in there, and I generally keep my TV on, both as a light source and because turning it on and off is too much of a hassle to bother every time I leave my room. But I'm walking down the hall toward my room, and I see a shadow walk behind my bedroom door, right through the glow of the TV that shines under my door. I stood there for a moment trying to debunk it (maybe when the picture changes it might appear like a moving shadow?), but I did not get anything similar in the time that I stood there. There was distinctly something there that walked through the glow of the TV.
