Bad storm yesterday

After the bad storm my page seems to have disappeared. It says

Not Found!

What you were looking for doesn’t exist or isn’t here anymore. We are sorry😦

Please return to the home page or use the search box above

So I am trying to figure this out. Clicking on return to home page doesn’t work either. I am not sure what to do. BUT….I WILL figure this out.🙂

Brand New Day

After yesterday’s fiasco I have decided to leave that behind, right along with the rest of the annoying, aggravating people that I have somehow allowed into my life. I’m not looking back…it sucks everything out of me to think about what they do or don’t do. It blocks my ability to write. And I NEED to write.

Sometimes I go days without writing. Sometimes I get so creative that thousands of words make it to the page. Today is a day without writing. I want to. I need to. But something is stopping me.😦

I am going to turn on some music and get to writing. There’s a man that needs to meet a woman and a woman that needs to be saved.🙂

It’s none of their business that you have to learn to write. Let them think you were born that way.
– Ernest Hemingway

Decisions, Decisions

First, find out what your hero wants, then just follow him!
    – Ray Bradbury

 

I sit here staring at three books I have started. I need to pick one and get off my rump and finish it. I can’t decide. I look at the documents one by one. There are no titles yet on any of them. I need to decide. I check the heroes in the documents. Who are they? Are they strong? What do they need to make them survive?

I look back at the documents and one catches my eye above all. Closing out the other two to be opened at a later date I stare at the hero and read who he is. I smile and my heart opens up. Scenes flood my mind begging me to write them.

Sometimes when we put our stories away for awhile and then pull them out…oh the wonders that we see. We fall in love with them all over again. And that is THE best feeling in the world. Now to make the rest of the world love him as much as I do.

Tired of everyone’s crap.

I have spent my entire life helping anyone who asked. For some reason, lately, people are either taking advantage of my kindness or I am just noticing that no one really appreciates anything. I am leaning towards the latter.

I think I might have gone through my life taking everyone’s crap because that’s what I was supposed to do. Somehow I got it into my head that I could please everyone by doing nice things for them. Boy was I mistaken. But it wasn’t until the last two years that I have really sat up and taken notice of what people do to me. They ‘expect’ me to do their bidding…and like it! Well I don’t and I am done. I am going to start making me happy and to heck with everyone else.

We aren’t promised tomorrow and if that’s the case…I don’t want to spend my last day here on this earth making sure everyone else is happy because no one seems to give a crap that I have feelings.

I’m going to save all the nice stuff for my books. I will write it down and that’s all anyone is getting. See how they like that.

On a good note, I have not received a second round of edits. I have my fingers crossed that I won’t get any.

Everyone have a blessed day………..

My life as a writer

My life as a writer—I can think of nothing I would like more than writing stories PERIOD!
That is what drives me. I see someone talking on a cell phone as they are walking down the street and that tiny scene inspires a book. And that scene may never make it into the book.

Once i saw a sign on a restaurant that said Happy Birthday Olivia…that inspired me to write about an older woman and a younger man…each of them looking for their place in the world.
Last week someone I know lost their temper…that inspired me to kill him in my book I am writing right now.

My life as a writer—there is nothing that replaces the feeling of accomplishment when I finish a book and it gets published. I love writing.

And you need to watch out…you may just end up in one of my books.
