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!

My blog is titled "A Leap of Faith," simply because for me that is what this is. -- I am extremely shy & terrified of failure... but just like everyone else, I have big dreams. --- I have a passion for the written word, for every story told, & for getting lost in novels. Certainly not the easiest world to go out into... especially not for someone so afraid of failure that trying sometimes doesn't seem worth it. -- This blog is just one small step in the right direction! A way to push myself out into the world & stop being so afraid. -- So here's to writing about life, the aspiring writer's journey, & everything in between. Oh, & of course, my leap of faith! :) -Heather.

  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.

    1. 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. 🙂

      1. 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!
