Skin Of My Teeth…….

November 30th is here and in my attempt to post at least once a month, here it is.

When the creative juices stop flowing, I take time to re-read some oldies but goodies.  I will spend  some time “daydreaming” and re-writing favorite scenes in my head.  I enjoy the brainstorming activity and it keeps my mind occupied when I’m driving long distances or running.  Eventually I sit back down and move forward on my own novel but I try to never compare my characters to others.

Truth be told, I have rewritten my own scenes in my head several times, but that’s okay because there is no ending yet and it can’t change an outcome that hasn’t happened!

Free Falling………..

Been in a tailspin the past few weeks but think I’ve managed to right the ship.  Looking forward to getting back to the business of writing.  I’ve actually missed my characters and somehow hope they’ve miraculously gotten themselves out of the web they’ve spun, but somehow I doubt it.  They are going to need my help and I’m up for the challenge.

This roller coaster continues and I’m glad to be back on the ride!!!!

Switching Gears…………….

Time to switch gears and shift back to ‘writing’ mode.  The past two weeks have been filled with life, life  and oh yeah, life.  Hate when that gets in the way.

I began writing my novel in March and started blogging about my journey in May.

I would like to personally thank the 36 BRILLIANT and BEAUTIFUL  people who actually read this crazy blog.  I’m sure no-one cares that I am experiencing the same turmoil, frustration and head banging sessions that everyone else does.  I can offer no valuable advice on how to overcome these obstacles or give direction.

I like to write.  I like to dream up stories.  I like to challenge myself………that’s it in a nutshell.

I am not qualified to review or critique anybody else’s work, because who really cares if I LIKE OR DISLIKE it.

Getting ready to shift into high gear and get back to the task at hand.  Thanks for the rant session.  Work begins bright and early tomorrow where I will have to face beast and push on through.
