Life. Books on hold this week….
I know I just found my passion for writing again and have been at it but.. Life just keeps throwing things at me and I have been unable to find the time or the energy to write.
My family lost a pet Thursday night, which has been really hard on me. Charlie our dog was close to me, but it was his time. He lived a long good life, and he did not suffer much. In addition to that I had a friend visiting from out of town and was spending a lot of time with her, while catching my self up with other friends, and making some new ones. All while avoiding my home for obvious reasons.. (Charlie is not here any more and it was to hard to face the music.) Plus I went to the gym five days in a row, for almost three hours each time. So I would only be home to sleep.
Unfortunately that has caught up to me and I think I have a cold now.. If not that, All I want to do is sleep. And I felt nusas when I ate… I know I am not dehydrated…
So to ecover and play catch up on stuff, like my room needs a good cleaning. I will be taking all this week or at least most off from writng. Take care, and God bless you!
Whistle while you work!
After a good work out at the gym I am in a good thought filled mood and I am ready to write! I am very motivated after a long week of thinking, and other activities. It is very important I get these books done. So lets see how much I can get done and Then I will edit this and fill you in.. XD
Hopefully I will have lost for you to read when I am done! I really can not wait to share my books with you!
Yay! Work! No time!
Things have been going good I have been inspired but not a lot of time to write like I had hoped and planed for. I like helping my family out but they keep calling me away when I have the writing bug. I need to just tell my family to give me a break so I can write.. But I can’t seem to say no to them.
Good news is, I have gotten some work done. Not as much as I need to do. I may have to just disappear for a few hours some time and just write. If only I could find a place. Bad news to you. I pass word protected those two chapter / entries. But for 2 good reasons.
1. I didn’t like the chapter ending to “A Crimson Star” I will fix it soon.
2. I think the other one “A Knight All Along” could be extended. And since they are both first chapters. You should have a good impact / impression on them.. Tomorrow I will try and edit both of those and post more of my work..
Then, some feed back would be great! Thanks.
A Crimson Star: Intro
“A Crimson Star”
This book is pure imagination some characters are based / Inspired by people I am familiar with. The setting is the year sometime between 1997-2009. It is full of drama, romance, and comedy. Hopefully this is something that every one in some way can enjoy. If you decide to buy this book, borrow this book, or are reading it online please read it all the way through before you make judgment. And when you do make a judgment think about it and take it all into consideration please.
Thank You, for your interest in my work and please keep an eye out for my other works to one day hopefully come to print.
This Book is based on my original idea and is a work in progress. Be warned you will see changes made now and then to already posted chapters.
My goal is to be a published writer and this only one of the several books I am working on!
DO NOT STEAL MY IDEA OR STORY
I will involve the LAW if need be!!
“All I ever wanted was to be loved,
Was that to much to ask for?
But when I got the love I wanted,
I wish I had not found it.”
Dedicated to anyone who has ever had
a broken heart.
This book is made possible
With the aid and inspiration from:
& observations of many
Thank you Very much, and God Bless You, All..!!
Hello My Readers and Friends,
I was thinking since this site turned out exactly as I wanted it before I lost my other word press blog. (Sad I lost some pics and files, but oh well) That I would continue my dream of posting my book work under a password so that those “few special people” who donate, proof read, or family” can read them. But the rules will be strictly in forced and I can at any time remove the chapters and books if they are violated. I will have the 1st chapter public though. As by rule most publishers allow that to give readers a taste.. But for a few of my books you will want to read at least 2 chapters or you won’t get the book’s plot. Because some of my books will have two sides of the story.
*You are not allowed to share the pass word with anyone, not even family with out my permission!
*You must give me feed back, not slams, questions are good too!
*You must not copy, paste, save, or email them to any one!
With that said some time next week I will start adding chapters form all my current books. Please remember they are raw, and will be that way till I find a publisher and officially get assigned an editor. I have full right to change the books and chapters, as I please, and you will probably see little or big adjustments until each book is finished. I will have all my book chapters here unlike on Fiction Press, where I can only publicly post 3 chapters or I could not get officially published. Thank you and God bless!
I hope your as excited to read as I am to share..
I know I have the pen name as * Anjiu Vanstar but it has never really flowed. I have always Loved the name I use for my self at time “Anjiu SutoMu” I think I will change that to my pen name. Anjiu means beloved; Suto means Storm; Mu means Bug. So I prefer the SutoMu to the plain Vanstar which means nothing. SutoMu is more memorable too… I am not going to go back and rename my live journal though… So you will just have to know I changed my Pen name if I eventually release any books under it.
The reason I am all for a Pen name “a sur name” to write under is because I want my readers to be able to discern my books on “fact” and “faith” vs my “Fiction”ones.. That way also people who hold grudges against authors who write both. (I know they are out there, they do not want to read a book by an Author of faith.) But I feel torn about that too. However, I want to get my books read by many of people and though some of my books you will not be able to tell I am a believer you will in others very clearly. (of course I want to write good books.) ” I can’t explain it. You will just have to see for your self when I am done..
So: What do you think of the Pen name “Anjiu SutoMu” vs “Anjiu VanStar” Please leave me a comment with your opinion.

I have been extremely inspired lately to write. Yet still have been able to settle down enough to focus on my thoughts to get them out. I have been running around like crazy inside my mind. Outwardly I am sleepy and antsy. I need to buckle down and finish my room. I need to also take some stuff to storage, sort my cloths for donations again, go on a road trip to see my Cardiologist, sort out some personal issues, try to fix some friendships while keeping the ones I hold most dear. Plus my baby sister had a baby on June 2end! Conner Roy is now 1 month old! Woot! I am so happy for her, I am so glad he is in our lives… And that is only part of it… But I am working on what I need to get done! And am working on the books, but slowly right now.
So for book work here is what has been done the past 3 months:
* “Life is Harder Than you Think” – Has been re-named “Miracles still Happen Today” I wrote another chapter now I have about 40 pages and still have a ways to go. This HAS be my main project for now. I won’t get it done if I keep following impulses to work on the other books I am working on. Which is exactly what I have been doing.
* “The Crimson Kiss” is now “The Crimson Star” I wrote another two chapters in that = about 60 pages.. I have a total of about four chapters now.
* I LOST and FOUND my main book “The Princess and The Mirror” It seems I accidentally deleted all my back ups………. So I though.. (A case of them being in the wrong folders) But guess what I just found It on my old flash drive. I am not sure how much of my Re-writes I lost. But Thank GOD I found them. He is so amazing!! I could have restarted it, but luckily I didn’t loose it after all!
* “Issiboo” is now renamed “Mission Fred” other then that no real work on that one.
* I started three other books. “Musical Mishap”, and two others which are on hold. (I can not seem to remembered the names right now, but they are awesome names.) All three have 1st chapters done with summaries for me. Two are set in current times. One is set in a more castle age. That one started a s a short story and just keeps getting longer.
Those are only the current updates. I have more books. I lost the list I once made so I will re-make it in a week or so if you want to know exactly what I have.
That is about all. I am off to dinner with my family and then to pick out Conner Roy’s new baby prints!! Take care! God bless YOU today and always!
