If anyone was counting, or paying attention, I know I said I would start posting daily, and I have not. I realize this. I am writing this to let you know that my lack of posting doesn’t mean I am not working on a post. It is just that I am putting in more effort … Continue reading Just gimme a minute.
So far I have written two different versions of this blog post. In one I am optimistic. I explain what I have been up to these last five months and my sincere desire to begin daily posts again. Then there is the other version. This second version is darker. I tell you how nothing has … Continue reading Third Times the Charm?
I don’t know what happened yesterday. I didn’t go to bed early the night before so I didn’t get up early to workout. When I finally did get up, I was nervous; sick and shaky, there’s a killer around the corner, nervous. I thought about what I had to do that day. I had to … Continue reading Am I Resting or Just Being Lazy?
I did what I planned to do yesterday. I spent the day reading books about Egypt and then I did a bit of writing on my novel. It was my second day of 250 words (at least) per day for six weeks. I am going strong. The other side to that is this; I don’t … Continue reading And Now Some Relief
I haven’t done much yet to write about. I could tell you about being at McDonald’s, sitting in a booth and watching the boys play and feeling completely content. They are playing a spy game. They are finding clues and solving a mystery together. It is perfect. When they were smaller I would take them … Continue reading A Little Slice of Perfect
I didn’t work out early this morning like I planned (it wasn’t a good plan). Turns out that little girl (my stubborn inner child) doesn’t sleep in. She was up and ready to throw a fit before my eyes were even open. I am not giving up though. There must be a way. I … Continue reading Past Failure and Setting New Goals
I didn't get to try out my new shoes yesterday. But I did get to spend the entire day at home, alone, doing research for my novel. It was marvelous. I had a wonderful time. I learned things about Witchcraft and Ancient Egypt and Native American Prophecy, just to name a few. I spent the … Continue reading Looking Ahead to the Good Parts
I wrote nearly 700 words yesterday in my horror/fantasy novel. I made a commitment to myself to write at least one sentence of fiction a day, no matter what. I am beginning my third week and I am going strong. However, writing a sentence a day is not enough to actually finish a book (in … Continue reading Writing Word Goals
I went for a walk yesterday. I was busy most of the day working on background research for my book. It was a lot of fun but it meant I was sitting nearly all day in front of the computer. Before I knew it, the sun was setting and I hadn’t had any exercise. So, … Continue reading Walking in the Moonlight
I haven’t had an anxiety attack all week. I have a busy weekend planned, so, we will see how I fare. But mostly I would say I am doing well. Sometimes it is hard to tell the difference between the voices in my head, to tell which ones are on my side and which ones … Continue reading Staying In The Moment
