Cassiopeia Lancaster is a Freelance and Creative Writer and Relationship Counselor and Blogger. She mentors people to build self-esteem and confidence, improve their quality of life, and have better relationships using research-based topics, Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP), and using her experience as a registered nurse. She is currently working on three novels.
The idea to blog started when she realized her writing could help people on Yahoo Answers. She usually answer questions about relationships, health, parenting, dating, and marriage. Then she made her own blog on 2008 on Blogspot during Christmas vacation, but she stopped because she got so busy on her last subject so she could graduate.
She always loved to write and in nursing school, that’s when she began to explore about writing medical articles. A year later, she studied writing articles in a normal format.
Cassie once worked for a year as a technical writer and medical blogger for a software company.
When she finally decided to pursue writing, she quit her job and started her adventure as a freelance writer. At the same time, she was given a chance to pursue her other interests such as singing. She attended a musical theater workshop on April 2014. It’s one of her best and happiest experience. She love to do it again.
The year 2014 were the most productive and challenging year for her, she knows what she wants and love, but she was really having a hard time getting opportunities. At the same time, she made several mistakes. She’s not going to make excuses and say she was stressed, still suffering from a heartbreak, and she was trying to find herself again, but those things are true. This year, she’s trying to make amends with everyone she had hurt, she’d apologized, she prayed, she confessed, she’s doing her best to behave and to stick with the plan, and trying to make things work.
Cassie started reading and learning about personalities when she was 14 years old.
When she got in College, she studied and tested the different personality types and had her classmates do it too, so she could compare and contrast.
You’re probably thinking what she’s talking about when she keep mentioning lovemap in her posts. Lovemap is a word she encountered from Keith Ablow’s novel, Psychopath in December 2011. She read different books and research about the topic. It was easy for her to understand lovemap because that is also the time where she found her lovemap.
The unfinished novels she’s working on is called The Guardian Program, Kismet, and Dead and Alive. There was a first novel she’s working on and she’s saving it for last, but it’s the most important story for her. The unfinished scripts she have are called Dream, and the other one is for The Guardian Program. As for now, she’s improving her English and writing skill by writing short stories, flash fictions, and giving critiques in Scribophile. It’s been a lot of help.
She studied Screenwriting in Writing Booth Camp for a while using her novel The Guardian Program. It was so much fun working on the script and her mentor was so helpful and thorough.
While growing up, she took care of several dogs and puppies. They sold some of them to their neighbors and friends. Now, they have four Labrador Retrievers, one Bichon Frise, and two stray dogs at home. To tell you the truth, she’d taken care of 13 puppies, because one of their dog gave birth to 9 puppies and the other gave birth to 4 puppies. It was fun and challenging to the whole family.
She always dreamed of having her own black cat and black horse. She love to name the cat Kibo. It’s a Japanese idiom meaning hopeful or wish. As for her horse, she’ll name him Gallop, just because there’s a type of heart beat sound, called gallop. 😉
Also she learned how to bake from her mom when she was 14. So far, her mom’s best recipe that she love are Blueberry Cheesecake and the dessert marshmallow with chocolate and nuts. She didn’t really know what’s the dessert called. She thinks her mom made it up.
In 2016, she attended her second musical theatre workshop and in here, she was able to study and improve what she know and her skills on acting, singing, dancing hiphop and ballet again. Also, it gave her an opportunity to learn about scriptwriting and directing from her mentors.
Cassiopeia Lancaster is a pen name. She picked Cassiopeia because of the constellation from the Greek mythology Queen Cassiopeia. She picked Lancaster from Lady Marian of Lancaster from Robin Hood.
She writes to make a sincere human connection and to be accepted and understood. She wants to understand other people as well, make friends and also to help other people with her knowledge, skills, and her writing.
Cassie grew up as a woman full of innocence, ideals, and naivete. She’s grateful for having experiences that had hurt her enough to grow, to lose her ideals in people due to the bullying and abuse, lose some major part of her innocence, some ideals, kindness, and heart when she’ve fallen in love with D. She became more of an intellectual and academe person, rather than a believer in almost everything like Fox Mulder from The X-Files. Her motto when she graduated in College, reverberates in her, after all these years.
Life is not exactly what it seems.
She wants to share a much more important lesson for her.
Love is not just a feeling, and a responsibility, it is also a wild, intense and tenacious freak of nature. You need to learn and understand it to tame it, and make good use of it in your life. She’s so grateful, she’d been broken and hurt enough to finally know how. 😉
