Hey, y'all, it's your friendly mod.
I know it's been forever since I've posted anything. In fact, the last time I posted was to announce that I was pregnant.
Since then, My son, Adriyan Lemant Simpson, was born November 4 after a very enjoyable pregnancy and 30 hours of labor (it sounds bad, but it really wasn't, even though I didn't get an epidural until 2 hours before he was born).
Since then, I really dont' get to get on the internet as much as I used to be able (no surprise LoL) but I just wanted to say "Welcome" to all who have posted in the past couple of months. I am SO sorry that it's taken me this long to say anything. And I apologize for letting this community fall asleep. I mean, it's not like it really ever took off, but I'm thrilled when I see all who are members.
Now, where it comes to my own dreams, they kinda went dormant for a while as looking forward to meeting my son became my number 1 thought. He's here and I'm enjoying every minute (for the most part LoL) of mommyhood. That, and my son's father, Wes, who I had been engaged to for almost a year, got married on November 15. So, I'm no longer Felicia Cochran ^_^ I'm now Felicia Dianne Simpson >^.^< Woot! (hmmmm, gotta remember to change that part on my user info)
Anyway, I'm once again back to dreaming of being a singer. And, for once, I've finally found something that can help me.
While I don't have any idea where to find vocal coaches in this area, I found a book at Barnes & Noble that can help me. It was written by a vocal coach by the name of Roger Love, who has worked with many known artists, whether it was coaching them from the beginning or working with them on overcoming some problems that they were having.
The book comes with an audio CD that has some different excercises for me to do and all sorts of things. ^_^ So, now all I need to do is start practicing.
Where it comes to writing, I have several different story ideas that I'm working on (need to get off me lazy bum). One is a paranormal romance about a werewolf, another is a paranormal romance about these 2 people that are rivals at a magazine that they work at and they have to do research on hypnotherapy together for an article and they come to find that they were together in a past life, still another is one that I've just started playing around with: it's about an Elf who lives among modern-day humans. That one, I really haven't started working on a plot to it yet, just something that I've been trying to dink with. There's a couple more, but those are the ones I'd like to focus on.
If any of you would like to be able to read any of these stories, leave a comment. I'm thinking about posting these on FictionPress.com
. That way, maybe y'all could hold me accountable to keep working on them rather than not finishing what I've started.
So, I think that's about all for me right now.
Oh! One more thing: If any of you would like to see pictures of me while I was pregnant and would like to see pictures of my son: go to my Mystik_Memories GJPix album
L8Rs! I'll try to write here more often, if only to tell what I'm practicing with my singing or, hopefully, what I'm writing at the moment.
