I am a young African-American science-fiction author. In between writing, I talk about tv-shows like The Originals, Fear the Walking Dead, Westworld, and Game of Thrones. I also talk about life as an African-American blerd and writing.
I can be slowed down since I am only human, but my drive is eternal, I cannot be stopped.
Do something today, anything that will push you closer to your goals.

Who am I?
I am a science fiction and paranormal author. I've written a few short stories, a novella, and a novel.
Here's a link to my web site Lauren Johnson. Please check it out and my stories.
I've been incredibly blessed to have perfect days. Or even dare I call them perfect weekends or events.
I'm a simple yet complicated person.
Simple because it doesn't take much to make me happy. Complicated because I need two bags to go away for a weekend.
I'm working on trying to get it down to one, haha.
My love and I just left the Ginos in Summersville a little pit stop on our way back home from staying in Snowshoe for the weekend.
A friend of ours invited us up to hang out and little did we know Wanderlust was going on.
We didn't know what Wanderlust was but after this weekend and saying Namasate as sarcastically as we can throughout the weekend (it got old pretty fast for me but not the fellas) we learned enough about the event to know it looks interesting buy above my pay grade. $400 for the weekend was my estimation.
Snowshoe is great in the summer.
Last year on the last day of the season Shawn and I got a pass where we drove an atv, shot clays and rode hor…
Because of that guy. Well, if you're into handsome, nice guys, then whatever.
But what I don't get is the reasoning behind the twitter attacks. What's happening? Is there a "Yeah! I sure showed her!" moment that happens? Yup, you got her! You got her good! She won't be able to get up in the morning. Darn, your plan, you succeeded.
Sarcasm is so much harder to get across over the internet.
My point is this, Dear Danneel, don't give into the haters by answering them on twitter or anywhere else for that matter! But DO answer the people who actually cheer for you. Be happy! Happy early birthday. And don't delete your twitter account like you erased your facebook account last March (if that was really you). Keep sharing your puppy pictures with us and anything else you may see and feel the need to share. I'm a receptionist at an old folks home I need so…
I've been a receptionist for seven years, depressing right? At first it was cool because I was in college, I've been out of college since early last year so now it's getting sad. 24 years old working with people who knew me when I was 17 is not cool. Especially when some of them forget that I was 17 when I started and I get the occasional "When do you graduate school?"
In all fairness that hasn't happened in awhile, but I'm going to help you out by sharing with you why some receptionists are the way they are.
I want to preface all of this by saying that some people are just mean and terrible, but a lot of this can be avoided if you educate yourself.
Imagine that you're a receptionist. Which is a nice way of saying that you're a glorified babysitter (in the case of assisted living facilities/ nursing homes). I'm sure you're probably thinking, 'Don't nurses watch the residents?' Ha! Hell no. Receptionists sit near the door…
