For those that don't follow me on a regular basis, I have been pushing myself to write despite a badly sprained wrist for the past 3+ weeks. I wear a splint day and night and have to have assistance with the craziest simple things like putting socks on or even picking up anything over 2 lbs. I was diagnosed with carpal tunnel at 18 yrs old, but a night of overzealous knitting pushed it over the edge, and I'm still paying for it.
That said, I was able to finish a story in two months time
Last week was pure hell. Anyone who has ever lost a beloved furbaby you have my sincerest condolences. I lost my little girl last Tuesday and I miss her terribly. She was over 18, had end stage kidney disease, and a couple new health items that cropped up. We did all we could to save her, but it was too late. She awaits us over Rainbow Bridge now.
Luckily, I have a tuxedo kitty too and he is not quite 14 yet. Diabetic, but in good health otherwise. He's been my love and light. He loves to
Wow...I cannot believe my last entry was eons ago!
My life has taken some serious twists n turns...I got out of a loooooooong marriage in 2015, found love and married again just last October I moved to a new state, new home, with my new man, lost my job (twice) and am once again on God's good humor. LOL
The one huge plus is that my stress level (not over jobs) but everything else is greatly diminished...so I can focus on life again and writing.
So...a question! You know
Well, after 15 years a story of mine is finally being brought out to the forefront, dusted off, and is being edited for publication (hopefully by year end or Q1 of 2015)!
That said, I've hit the wall with another story that even I am struggling with next steps on. How does one overcome a boring section or huge brick wall in your story?
Hello one and all!
Well, since my last entry, things did pick up. I found a temp gig that ends....next week. Yup. Then I'll be, as I quote from Titanic..."on God's good humor".
in the meantime, I want to amp up everything book-related in my life.
I want to thank everyone who's reached out to me and given advice, even just a friendly word or note; it is HUGELY appreciated!
Maybe NaNowrimo will get the juices flowing again? Not sure....LOL
Until then, pray that the job gods fin
Yup, in a rut in the mud or as I like to say a turtle in frozen molasses. LOL. Basically: writer's block.
The prompts here have helped me, but I am still frozen on my other major wip's.
Life has me stuck, I'm 4 weeks unemployed now and nothing in the hopper...which is scary and taking my focus away
Plus other family issues, etc...
Any advice from those in the writer's block prison?
Hello there! I was hoping some of the wonderful people who fell in love with Ice Fairy could help me out.
So far my story (available for sale) has no reviews
I'm not asking anyone to buy it; but to just give me your review on it that I can add to at least one site...
Finally! After over two years of writing only co-works; I was able to finish Ice Fairy all on my own and turn it into a series to boot!
It goes up for sale tomorrow at three different sites; Smashwords, Amazon, and All Romance Ebooks.
Homework and life are slowing me down on progress on other items; but those will get done too...I promise.
With each passing edit, I am getting more and more excited about the release of Ice Fairy! Squee moment! It's been a long time since I've released a solo book and to have it so well received and loved already has me very excited to see how it does in the marketplace!
Any new releases you're looking forward to?
I remember last year I had heard of Nano and truly wanted to do it..I was all set and had a story forming in my mind....when tragedy struck. My father-in-law died on November 11th and all hell broke loose in my personal life. Writing was out of the question and wasn't even on my brain again until sometime the following March!
Finally though, working through things and with help; life went on. When this November rolled around, I was determined to do it! I had two writing buddies that would he
Finally! After two years of not writing a solo work; I dusted off an idea that was almost three years old and finished it into the very-loved work of Ice Fairy.
My plans for it right now are to offer it on Amazon as well and to find a great cover for it. I'm open to imagery suggestions.
If you love my work on that, I do invite you to read one of my oldest works (2010 but orig written in 2006) called For the Heart of Phillip. Available only here on GA for 99 cents. Any feedback on that
I admit it. I'm a newbie when it comes to blogging. Most days I don't get involved in too much conversation in person; much less online. I didn't even know what a blog was 3 years ago (yes, go ahead a chuckle). I'm old; and most of this is new to me.
But now, after a few years and after being published and meeting so many wonderful fellow authors and friends who've taken my hand and helped me step into the larger worlds. (special kudos to MS and SL)!!!!
I joined GA about 6 weeks ago and
