So, what were your plans for 2015. I had tons and I'm almost afraid to read back through my posts because I've probably fallen short in some areas, but who hasn't? Hakuna Matata, that's right folks, no worries, all this means is that there is still half a year to go! So much to do, so little time...
Have you started writing your book? If not, ask yourself why? Whose permission are you waiting for?
If you have started and you're a bit stuck, like I was, you realize there comes a time when you just have to wallow in the mud a bit, catch your breath, get your bearings and then muscle the heck through! That's right, don't let that muckety muck hold you back. Just "keep moving forward". (I'm on a Disney kick, bear with me.
Once you've made sure your muse is back from vacay, don't let those thoughts and ideas just sit in your head and heart. WRITE THEM DOWN! Use your smartphone, your iPad, your laptop, a brown paper bag and pencil, who cares just get those thoughts out before they just "poof!" disappear like so much fairy dust (see, Disney...)
I've written on napkins at a restaurant, on a brown paper bag, on tissue paper, heck even on my hand, just to not lose that idea. Remember it's those ideas that make the best stories, the ones that take on a life of their own if you let them.
And finally, yes, I've dropped the ball on blogging lately but since we are half way through the year I am making my mid year resolution! Post at least once a week. Even if just to say hello. The only thing is I need you all to keep me accountable. Can you help this poor writer stay on track? I promise to reciprocate and give you all a kick in the- oops- a gentle nudge in the right direction.
What say you??
As for some general updates, let's see...hmmm....Ooh!
- I've lost 10 pounds!
- I'll be giving a presentation at the Orlando Central Library on Wednesday July 15th @ 6:30pm-Topic: Getting your Black Belt in Writing
- I'll be attending Indie Bookfest from July 31-Aug 2nd @ Orlando's Caribe Royal Hotel along with a bunch of amazing authors. (sooooo nervous)
- And my goal is to have book one in the Tempus Series and Book two in the Fear series completed before year's end.
Shoot, that's a lot, oh well...
HAKUNA MATATA EVERYONE!
