Roses

Hey Lovelies!
I just finished the first round of editing with Beneath the Scars and I'm happy with how the story devloped! It is a story staring Eponine and Rily who both have interesting sisters that I hope you all will get to enjoythis year. I have to see how my friend Amy feels about reading through it for the second round of editing, she's picking up speed in her stories which is really exciting! Amy and I talk about our stories and characters with each other especially when we need someone to bounce ideas off each other.

So for Beneath the Scars I had to do a little research on Roses, and the meanings behind each color. Using a couple of sites to compare the information just to double check information. Rily really doesn't buy into the information when being told that each color rose had meaning to it. I figured I'd share some of the findings between editings. For me I knew flowers had meanings, but when reading it was pretty interesting.

What girl doesn't like getting flowers? They are sweet gesture, and are beautiful. In Beneath the Scars a character talks about how when she was dating her boyfriend one Valentine's Day got off the train from work to see her. When he got off the train he a single white rose for her with a dark pink bow wrapped around it. Cute right? Things like that don't really happen? I'd like to take the credit for that cute scene, but than I'd be lying. Took that from real life, my ex when we were dating our only Valentine's Day got off the train later at night and when I picked him up he was there with a single white rose for me, well he also had a teddy bear too. I told him I used that for the story he didn't seem surprised.

    I really didn't know much about the meanings till this story, so I had fun researching it. Thanks I found that picture of the purple rose and it's actually the icon on my computer for when I sign in. :) Purple is my favorite too!
