Changing Colors…………………..

I can’t believe it’s the end of October already.  Haven’t had a chance to blog lately but wanted to take a minute to update you on my progress.

This book writing journey remains a positive experience for me and I haven’t lost my sense of humor (yet).   Admittedly, I was frustrated for a while but that’s when I took some time off to re-evaluate where I was going with things.  During my “down-time” I tried to read as much as I could and stay off the internet.  I had spent too much time trying to figure out how to market a book I hadn’t even written yet.

So as the colors change, I have renewed my love affair with my two favorite characters (and some witty extras who keep them on the right path).  I hope we’re not still having this conversation by the time the snow falls.  I hope to be through the editing phase by then, but of course I said that last summer!!!

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.

This thing has grown legs…….

Characters, plots, twists, conflict, love, harmony and oh yeah, drama.

Never would I have believed that a simple love story could have become so complicated. Real life is tough enough, hoping it also comes with a “Happily Ever After.”

Maybe one day, my creepy crawly will be a beautiful butterfly.

Now that’s happily ever after!

Off to the Lake……..

A week at the lake is the perfect remedy for the NYC blues.  Traffic has been horrendous this week with two-hour commutes everyday.  Looking forward to getting in some quality time with my new favorite characters to see how they’re developing.  They will have a tough week ahead figuring out that the web of lies is growing and the price for truth will be devastating for them both.  Or will they never reveal the truth?

Lake + Macbook + Wine =  the most serene place on earth!!!
