    “Pork barrel” my political-scientist(ish) brain uses this term to define you.

    You seem to provide all of us with your sex, your alluring and even sometimes kind words… still, no one benefits particularly from these privileges; even more: there is no cooperative, long-term relationship among us. You come as you please; we accept you,…[Read more]

  • Edna Paulet commented on the post, shows 6 years, 2 months ago

    Shows: a trigger word. He had tried his hardest to keep her away from anything that reminded her about her past life, her broken dream. Just reading that word was enough for her to have another breakdown. And he held her, kept her by his side as she wept uncontrollably.

    “Stay here with me; I love you” – he whispered in her ear

  • Edna Paulet commented on the post, fire 6 years, 3 months ago

    Nope. Not feeling it. It’s añmost impossible to be inspired (or at least coherent) when you have been mostly sleeping and eating in the last hours. There is no struggle… but I did watch There Will Be Blood. Genius. My time’s up.

  • Edna Paulet commented on the post, actual 6 years, 3 months ago

    Does it mean current, contemporary? Or is my spanish-as-a-mother-language showing? Well, so that you know, I am olimpically failing at trying to become a human being with decent writing abilities… and spanglish is oficially in the dictionary.

  • Edna Paulet commented on the post, scatter 6 years, 3 months ago

    Her belongings were scattered across the floor; she rushed to his arms, desperate for comfort. She cried like she had not cried in years, over affairs beyond her maturity level, over her chronic dissatisfaction with life, over her constant loneliness… but also cried for finally having someone to share her pain with.

  • Edna Paulet commented on the post, season 6 years, 3 months ago

    “You knew it couldn’t last past this season” – he said, trying to sound cold but actually letting his voice break. He wasn’t ready to say goodbye.

    “I don’t have to go; I can stay…” – she said as she ran to him and threw her arms around him

    “I am not going to be the person who distracts you from becoming who you’ve always craved to be…”

  • Edna Paulet commented on the post, five 6 years, 3 months ago

    It took her only five seconds to spot her from distance. Attraction is particularly high not only for the object of affection but also for the center of her hatred. She had always envied her casualness, her effortless perfection. She could perfectly pull off a t-shirt and jeans. She hated her for that.

  • Edna Paulet commented on the post, due 6 years, 3 months ago

    “Due to a clear lack of motiviation, your application has been declined”

    She smiled as she read his note. She loved his unnecessary formal register.

    He had just refused to go for some coffee. Minutes later, he asked her to go for some ice-cream instead.

    “How long will we keep playing this game: pretending not to be interested in each…[Read more]

  • Determined. She was not sure what it meant: the fact that her mind was made up; she need to back off, tu run away from him. Or was it that meeting him was actually the Gods’ design?

  • I don’t even care about today’s word: I just came to complain, and as the opportunity presented itself, here it is: my song has been cut two verses. TWO FREAKING VERSES! I hate everyone, basically… #actressproblems

  • I actually split the word in my head and read it as “Broadway cast”… My obsession (and lack of inspiration) is showing.

  • Edna Paulet commented on the post, July 6 years, 3 months ago

    “Do you remember those late talks that started around july? I was always surprised by the fact that our insomnia was equally severe. It’s good to finally know where it comes from; I somehow feel closer to you…”

    “Bonding through night terrors. You are seriously the worst.”

    “Well, in my defense, sharing is caring.”

    “What?! Your cliché…[Read more]

  • Edna Paulet commented on the post, simple 6 years, 3 months ago

    This character construction ought to be simple. However, portraying a reckless sixteen-year-old, who risks her life as a consequence of falling madly in love, is particularly difficult when you have never been and never will be there.

    Who needs actual reality when you can just model it? It might not be endless love, but merely a crush.

  • Edna Paulet commented on the post, higher 6 years, 3 months ago

    My expectations grow higher… is that even an expression? Whatever. It’s too real for me. I seem to be lost in my mind, in my dreams. Wondering… and I’m still afraid of becoming who I really long to be.

  • Edna Paulet commented on the post, cook 6 years, 3 months ago

    Oddly enough she does not spoil her first attempt at cooking; he even enjoys his meal (or at least he pretends to). As he is eating dessert, she remembers what an acting teacher once told her: “well, falling madly in love is great for you as an actress, not so much as a person”. “Damn” – she thinks- “I might be in trouble”.

  • Edna Paulet commented on the post, under 6 years, 3 months ago

    Under no circumstances she would be willing to accept his offer. It would only mean her complete surrender to such life: the one she had been leading but refused to keep on living.

  • Edna Paulet commented on the post, local 6 years, 3 months ago

    A local coffeeshop became their meeting place. She loved to ask him to take a wild guess and order for her.
    “If you are actually interested in me, you’ll know my coffe order” – she said, flirting with both her eyes and voice.
    He rolled his eyes, trying to conceal his amusement.

  • Edna Paulet commented on the post, late 6 years, 4 months ago

    “I’m late, is that what you are saying?” she asks, trying to stop her voice from breaking. Her hands start to shake, spilling the coffee she is holding. “I guess this is goodbye, then”…

  • Edna Paulet commented on the post, hall 6 years, 4 months ago

    She waits in the hall, alone. She does not even know where to go, nor whom she should call. She has never belonged; she will have to face this, alone.

  • Edna Paulet commented on the post, satisfy 6 years, 4 months ago

    She could no longer satisfy his expectations. Their relationship had become nothing but calvary. They were the broken protrait of perfection. Being so similar, in the end, was what would keep them apart.
