Alana A. Wellington was born in Mandeville, Jamaica. She enjoys both the creative and intellectual aspects of writing. As a young girl of about seven years, she started crafting stories, and hasn't stopped. Growing up in the U.S. she had many teachers who encouraged her to continue to push her ability, until she ventured into the realm of poetry. Since her senior year of high school, she's been writing both poems and stories. She graduated from Muhlenberg College in Allentown, Pennsylvania, with a Bachelors Degree in Art. She's always been an arts and science person, and finds it hard to separate these two dimensions of herself. Her work tends to explore how humans cope in a hurting world, and the relationships between people and God. Curre ...more

As we go into the final week of NaNoWriMo prep, I've decided to dredge up some old writing prompts I created. Writers, if you need some inspiration, I might have just what you need. First is an archive of Prompt 2 Write from my Facebook Page: click here. A few of the photos are no longer available, but there is still a good list available. And for the ones without photos, the word prompt might... Read more of this blog post »

This book clues you in to the meaning behind the title of the novels in this series. It's a very quick read. Good follow up to book one. I figured a twist was coming, but I really had no clue it would have been this. Brilliant and tragic.

This story started a bit slow for me. As things shifted from the monotony she experiences in the beginning, the narrative got a bit more interesting. Now, it seemed that the book was clipping along at a very fast pace. This made me want to keep read ...more

L.M. Montgomery
“Perhaps, after all, romance did not come into one’s life with pomp and blare, like a gay knight riding down; perhaps it crept to one’s side like an old friend through quiet ways; perhaps it revealed itself in seeming prose, until some sudden shaft of illumination flung athwart its pages betrayed the rhythm and the music, perhaps . . . perhaps . . . love unfolded naturally out of a beautiful friendship, as a golden-hearted rose slipping from its green sheath.”
L.M. Montgomery

William Ernest Henley
“Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.”
William Ernest Henley, Invictus

Dr. Seuss
“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot,
Nothing is going to get better. It's not.”
Dr. Seuss, The Lorax
