Another Book Update

Alright y’all… I’m going to be honest. I haven’t worked on my book in a while. — I know I should do better, it’s just lately I don’t have the drive I had a couple months ago. — That happens sometimes. Either I feel overwhelmed or I have no ideas really flowing and I just stop.

I’m going to get started again, I’m feeling like writing lately… which is definitely a good thing. Though that also means you guys may see more blog posts. — Hopefully I can keep you all entertained. 🙂

Oh & I actually told someone I’m writing! — When I was asked what I am up to, I said I am writing a book. (I left out the part about having not worked on it very hard the last month or so though.. lol) So, want to know who I shared that with? — My dental hygienist… who then proceeded to tell my dentist, Yep… that’s right… the first time I tell a stranger, it’s while I’m getting my teeth cleaned. Go figure. — Lol, they wished me lots of luck though and didn’t look at me like I’m crazy… so that’s a plus. 🙂

Just thought I’d share that with y’all. 🙂
Thanks for reading!

  1. Books are tricky beats. You get stuck, don’t yourself, wonder does this make sense? I found for me, I mapped it all out first. Played it like a movie in my head over and over again. When it came to writing, some details shifted. And I definitely hit a point around chapter 12 when I thought, “My Mc is going to look like she’s easy — I mean she’d only met the guy a week ago…” but then I’ve got all this content, all this detail about why is different with them, so I let it go and kept moving. Sometimes you just have to forget your anxiety and push through it. You could always fix it later if it really doesn’t fit.

    • Thanks for the advice! 🙂 — I think you’re onto something though, lol. I find that I am usually the most overwhelmed when I start second guessing every single word I put onto the page, haha. — I type a few sentences & I’m like, wait a minute… “what if there is a better way to say that? I think that just might sound stupid. Oh my goodness, there are 20 different ways to write this part, I don’t know what to do!!!” — LoL! Inside the mind of a writer… fun place, right? — But in all seriousness, you are so right. Sometimes you just have to let it go & keep pushing through to the other side… after all, that’s the only way to get there. 🙂

      • That’s what I did. I just finished the first draft a little while ago. I know it had put wholes the size of a Buick and my sentence structure generally sucks, but I can fix that later!
