The Writer’s Paper Wall

Farah's Blog

I would cut the images that’d inspire me and glue them in a book. There was so much hidden passion in my try to obtain inspiration from whatever I saw back then and make a story out of it even though my stories would only be half written. Different images would inspire different stories. This story however, is not inspired from an image someone captured at some random event, but from images of real life. I like to see things as they are, capture them and imagine them differently from the rest of us. I like to breathe fake life into what I see and think about how they can appear more melodramatic. Ridiculously modified by some amusing fairytale I’d never be a part of. Sinking in a reality of mental illness, I build a fictive world around myself to thrive in.

I’d like you to enter my fictive world…

World War Z Reviewed from a variety of perspectives

“Max Brooks has charted the folly of a disaster response based solely on advanced technologies and brute force in this step-by-step guide to what happened in the Zombie War. Brook’s account of the path to recovery and reconstruction after the war is fascinating. World War Z provides us with a starting point, at least, a basic blueprint from which to build a popular understanding of how, when, and why such a disaster came to be, and how small groups and individuals survived.”
– Jeb Weisman, Ph.D., director of strategic technologies, National Center for Disaster Preparedness

”Possesses more creativity and zip than entire crates of other new fiction titles. Think Mad Max meets The Hot Zone… It’s Apocalypse Now, pandemic-style. Creepy but fascinating.“
—USA Today

”Prepare to be entranced by this addictively readable oral history of the great war between humans and zombies…Will grab you as tightly as a dead man’s fist.“
— Entertainment Weekly, EW Pick

”Probably the most topical and literate scare since Orson Welle’s War of the Worlds radio broadcast. . . . This is action-packed social-political satire with a global view.“
– Dallas Morning News

”Brooks is America’s most prominent maven on the living dead. . . . Chilling. . . . It is gripping reading and a scathing indictment of weak responses to crises real and over-hyped.“
– Hartford Courant

”A sober, frequently horrifying and even moving account. . . . Brooks has delivered a full-blown horror novel, laced with sharp social and political observations and loads of macabre, gruesome imagery. . . . The real horror of World War Z comes from the all-too-plausible responses of human beings and governments to the menace.“
– Fangoria

”A horror fan’s version of Studs Terkel’s The Good War. . . . Like George Romero’s Dead trilogy, World War Z is another milestone in the zombie mythology.“
– Booklist

”Brooks commits to detail in a way that makes his nightmare world creepily plausible. . . . Far more affecting than anything involving zombies really has any right to be. . . . The book . . . opens in blood and guts, turns the world into an oversized version of hell, then ends with and affirmation of humanity’s ability to survive the worst the world has to offer. It feels like the right book for the right times, and that’s the eeriest detail of all.“
A.V. Club, The Onion

”The best science fiction has traditionally been steeped in social commentary. World War Z continues that legacy. . . . We haven’t been this excited about a book without pictures since–well, since ever.“
– Metro

”Each story locks together perfectly to create a wonderful, giddy suspense. Brooks also has the political savvy to take advantage of any paranoia a modern reader might feel. . . . The perfect book for all us zombie junkies.“
– Paste

”This infectious and compelling book will have nervous readers watching the streets for zombies. Recommended.“
– Library Journal

Beyonce was ‘spanked’ (‘assaulted’) by a fan on stage in Copenhagen: gross?

Beyonce was ‘spanked’ (‘assaulted’) by a fan on stage in Copenhagen: gross?

Beyonce had a show in Copenhagen last night as part of her Mrs. Carter Tour. She was singing “Irreplaceable” and letting the fans in the front sing along with her, putting her mic down to their level to sing “to the left, to the left”. She was walking away from a fan when he slapped her booty! Which is… gross. On HIS part, not hers. She was just performing and she gets a grope-y ass-slap from some random dude? That’s assault. What I love is that Beyonce didn’t laugh it off. She turned around and looked at him and said, “I will have you escorted out right now, alright?” Here’s the video of the exchange:

Gross. Again, on HIS part, not hers. Gawker says the dude was allowed to stay, but I kind of wish Beyonce would have made a bigger deal about it.

Meanwhile, have you heard about Shirley Manson criticizing Beyonce? In an interview back in April, Shirley was discussing Beyonce’s embargo on unflattering Beyonce photos, and Shirley said: “Who knows what her motivations were, but I am somewhat baffled to even begin to understand why this unstoppable force, this incredible performer, this fully empowered business woman and successful star has allowed herself to be flapped by what the media has deemed ‘unflattering’ images.” Subtle shade, and completely appropriate. Then Shirley said recently, “A lot of celebrities just want money, fame, power, fancy cars, houses all over the world and have people bow down to them. To me, that’s frightful behavior.” Bow down you say? Huh. Well, apparently Rihanna “liked” it too. For what it’s worth.



Chrissy Teigen on Kate Upton: SO BEAUTIFUL and Inspiring!

[simpleazon-image align=”right” asin=”B009G8EFX0″ locale=”us” height=”110″ src=”” width=”88″]

If you follow Chrissy Teigen on Twitter or Instagram, you know that the 27-year-old model can be hilarious, unfiltered, sassy, and even controversial.

She’s gotten into feuds with Team Breezy and fans of Farrah Abraham, the Teen Mom turned porn star who she recently called a whore on Twitter.

But she’s quick to heap praise on people she feels are deserving of it as well. High atop that list? Her fellow Sports Illustrated stunner Kate Upton!

Asked about the June 2013 Kate Upton Vogue cover in a recent interview, Teigen gushed, “I am friends with her. She looks absolutely amazing.”

“I texted her immediately as soon as I saw it and I said, ‘Kate, I have never… not only Vogue … but I’ve never seen a cover of anything this beautiful in my entire life.”

“I just got chills thinking about it. Kate is fantastic. She is is bringing the model back, but more than anything I think she’s bringing confidence back within people.”

“I know that I shot the other day and the fact that I didn’t feel like I had to be anorexically skinny, that made me truly feel good. And Kate has done that for people.”

High praise! Sounds like someone believes the 20-year-old Kate Upton is in fact the hottest supermodel on Earth, as Vogue recently proclaimed her.

Do you agree?

Cleveland Has Become A Hot Bed of Tourism – VIDEO

HASTILY made Cleveland Ohio Tourism Video by Tony Greene

And now for a bit of Wikipedia goodness about the sparkling city of Cleveland.

Cleveland obtained its name on July 22, 1796 when surveyors of the Connecticut Land Company laid out Connecticut‘s Western Reserve into townships and a capital city they named “Cleaveland” after their leader, General Moses Cleaveland. Cleaveland oversaw the plan for what would become the modern downtown area, centered on Public Square, before returning home, never again to visit Ohio. The first settler in Cleaveland was Lorenzo Carter, who built a cabin on the banks of the Cuyahoga River. The Village of Cleaveland was incorporated on December 23, 1814.[9] In spite of the nearby swampy lowlands and harsh winters, its waterfront location proved to be an advantage. The area began rapid growth after the 1832 completion of the Ohio and Erie Canal. This key link between the Ohio River and the Great Lakes connected the city to the Atlantic Ocean via the Erie Canal and later via the St. Lawrence Seaway; and the Gulf of Mexico via the Mississippi River. Growth continued with added railroad links.[17] Cleveland incorporated as a city in 1836.[9]
