Trying

I haven't been doing very good as far as actually writing goes, as much as I hate to admit it. I've been working like a draft horse and just don't have time. That's an awful writer's excuse and I cringe at saying it but that's what I've come to. The more I get back into the swing of reading though the more I end up itching to write. My brain has been clouded with.. other things lately but I'm getting back to it! Very useless and redundant grouping of words but at least it's something. Write, write, write!

My Angel is on hiatus right now but my latest attempt at getting him out took a very different route. So far it's working, sorta, have a few plotholes to fill eventually but it's something.

My short story "Tangled" is still out there in need of editing, which I'm getting back on top of.

I'm still trying that Young Adult idea I had but I don't think it's going to go anywhere. I keep coming back to the bare bones of it but nothing further forms. Oh well.

I'm trying to find another short story idea I can run with so I can get something else completed. Something original yet simple yet dynamic. HA! I'll keep working on it.

I entered another Gena contest on her website, this time for an iPad II. Wouldn't that be swell?!

Enough for now, I need to get my day-off errands done so I can get home and enjoy some words.

Tangled

I finished my short story!!!! My first completion since getting serious about my writing, and I'm very happy with myself. It needs major editing but I have the most wonderful friend in the world for that. (Shout out to my awesome twin soul - Christina!)

I was previously calling this piece Tangled, but after the adorable Rapunzel movie I am forced to choose another title. My version of the name referred to the age old "Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive." A fitting title, really, but there will be something better.

As soon as all the kinks are worked out and it's ready I'm going to be ebook publishing with Smash Words. It will at least be a start for me - at least something will be out there. With my name on it.

And it only took me five months!!!!!!




Yeah, I'll be working on that.

Divine Intervention

When I'm finally given a moment's peace my mind is only on one thing lately. Sometimes the feeling is so strong I can't even get it into actual words within my mind. I wish for something so hard and while I know my efforts are for naught, I don't stop. How can a simple piece of fiction, that isn't even at full completion yet, become so much a part of me that I can't live without it? One part of me feels beyond silly but the other part seems to know better.

I'm just waiting out the minutes before it's bedtime for the kids and then hopefully tonight there's an Angel on my side.
