Happy Dance

I have made a good amount of changes to Jaded Nightmares and it will be going to a friend to review for changes within the next week. It feels good to get my writing mojo back. I just wish writing your first book did not come with so many headaches and hard expensive lessons along the way. I am coming up with a plan hopefully soon for all the people that bought my book. Will explain later when I have more information. Back to writing now.....

Jaded Nightmares rewrite

Started the rewrite today. It's easier then I thought it would be, so I'm thinking I'm not doing it right...LOL, I figure I will fix the obvious errors first then to back and fix the not so obvious ones next. Then we will see what happens.

Finally the muse is back and the words are flowing on the pages again. What is being written is not what I am used to writing and from the looks of it these pages do not belong in Novel 2 and might have to in it's own novel, but I am happy to be writing again.
I want to say thank you to all my new followers on my blog...Thank you!

Writing again

Several people have given me some great tips to get me writing again. They also gave me the advice to not let others affect me with what is being said with my book, I know I have been given this advice many times before. I know that I take things to personally and I knew before I published my book that I would most likely fall apart when a review came in, I never thought I would fall apart because I have not recieved a review yet.

It is time I pick myself off the pity pot and start doing what I love again.

debating writing again...nope...words not flowing correctly...

She stared hopelessly at the computer screen praying for the words to flow again. Who would have thought that she would be upset she could no longer write??!!
She desperately wanted the words to flow, she pleaded with the muse to work again. For weeks now there was nothing in her head… She is debating if this means the end of her writing, the end of nightmares… The end of her frantically looking for a piece of paper and something to write with to get the words out of her head… Only time will tell…

I sat down to write, the words flowing in my head and then bam nothing absolutely nothing.....groans, what the heck is going on???

Tomorrow is another day right? I hope tomorrow is better then today.

Muse is on vacation

So I have taken over two weeks off debating what to blog about and how to get the characters in my book to come out and play so to speak....

Nothing is working and I think my muse is on vacation on some tropical island sipping cocktails and enjoying the pool while I sit here staring at my computer monitor praying the words start to flow again....

I am at a complete lose for what to do to get the words flowing. My favorite music is not working, reading books is not working and playing scrabble is not working..Sighs I have never had writers block this bad before and it sucks!!!

Crossing my fingers and hoping tomorrow is a better day.

I have been trying like crazy to come up with something new for my blog and it is not working out so well. I can't seem to get my blog to post to my fb account. I can't decide how I want to put my characters in the blog.....

So overall I am still stuck and debating what the heck I am doing here.

*dances around happily* I hit the 100 page mark today on Novel 2. Still no title, but I can say that the words are starting to flow more easily now then they did before and I am becoming more confident in my writing. Now if I can just figure out how to make my blog more appealing that would make this week better...lol

Wow the words finally started to flow yesterday and I was able to crank out 10 pages. That felt really good, now if the muse would be so kind and let me start writing today that would really make me happy. I am trying to write at least 2 pages a day. Yes that is small, but it keeps me on task or at least I hope it would. So far it seems to have made my brain say enough give it a rest. I am not on a deadline to finish this novel I just want to get it moving along. I would love to have this novel done this year instead of 5 years later like hte first one.
Ok even babbling time to drink some coffee and see if the words flow.

Ok, so it's been almost a week since I last blogged. OOPSS!! I have written 14 pages in the Novel 2. Still not name for it yet. I just love the way you can sit down with an idea on what you are going to write and then it changes after the second sentence.
I am still trying to get used to this whole blogging thing. Not quiet sure what to put in it. I do know that it does seem to help with keeping me on task.

I wrote absolutely nothing yesterday. Kind of depressing, but I know it happens I just need to take a deep breath and know that the words will flow as soon as I calm down and let them.

Yesterday was a slower writing day I only wrote 6 pages, but the second chapter took on hell of a turn that I was not expecting and I had to stop writing to just reread everything again. I still find it amazing when you see something in your head and you start typing or writing it up and then it changes dramatically when you reread it. I find it to be difficult at times, yet a blessing as well. Without those changes that come while writing I think my books might be just space taking up my hard drive, if that makes sense.

I was able to write 10 pages on the second novel before I crawled into bed yesterday feeling like a mac truck hit me.

So after blogging I hit a block words started to slam into my head almost to the point of causing a migraine. I made a cup of tea sat back and just stared at the open clean word page and then I type away like a mad women for 90 minutes until I had 11 pages added to the book. WOW!!! Thank you muse for coming back and slamming me with the words I needed to get over whatever it was that I was feeling.

My book seems to have stalled out with just like my running. I kept making excuses this weekend as to why I could not do either one. New day, new week time to get my butt moving and my hands typing away. It is 20 days until the Oshkosh Half Marathon, my first half marathon ever and my first of 2 this year. I know that I am mentally blocking myself from doing both things I love to do. I just need to but my fear aside and do what I love.

Today it rained most of the day and my muse seems to have taken that as her cue to sleep all day instead of giving me inspiration to write. Tomorrow is another day to write. I am hoping after I get some more tea and get my workout in inspiration will strike.

hmm this one did not post in oder...3/26/12

So I read a few blogs and I have tried starting one on my webpage but then I heard about Blogger and I was like oh this looks so much better. A little more complicated then the one I was just using, but it looks better. So my challenge to myself is can I blog daily or will I forget to do it?!


I totally forgot to blog yesterday I was so busy letting the words flow for the new book I completely forgot. On a positive note I wrote 14 pages yesterday. That was awesome when I saw that. The muse seems to be quiet this morning. She needs to wake up so I can write some more.

Part of me is holding back I think because I have not had a review on the first book so I am worried to continue on this one. I guess time will tell.

Tuesday, March 27, 2012


Hey I actually remembered to blog today, despite this terrible migraine that has been plaguing me since 7am this morning. I was also able to write 400 words to book 2. Not too bad considering the way that I feel. Still not to sure what I do with my blog besides post how far I have come on my new book and how my first book is doing. I have sold 8 books so far in the month it has been out. I still have not received a review on it but, that still has be a little worried, but I am hopeful no news is good news.

So I set up my webiste and it said to add a blog, I go ok. Very basic and easy to use. I have never blogged before so I start rereading my friends and searching on google how to blog and I came across Blogger. This seems nicer, but not so friendly. Hmmm can I keep up the blog thing or will I let it slip away. Only time will tell......
