Tag Archives: Writing Fail

Gah!!

Has it really been 6 months since I’ve posted on this site? I swear it was just yesterday! Unfortunately, my novel has been on the back burner as well. It seems I have a hard time fitting in 80 hrs worth of work in a 2 hour span. Go figure.

There are is no excuse for my slacking and I do apologize for having disappeared for a while. As a friend of mine says, “Onward and upward!”

Exciting news:

1) I have finally signed up for dropbox, so I have access to my files anywhere.
2) My Ipad2 enables me to add notes to said files when I’m not near my computer. Score!
3) Charlaine Harris is coming to Houston for a book signing on May 13th (Friday the 13th!).

Goals:

1) Continue organizing my thoughts on the 3 separate book ideas rumbling around.
2) Pick one idea and run with it.
3) Create an area in my sewing room where I can set up my writing desk instead of the couch!

It’s good to be back!

WIP Fail

I sat down last night to work a bit on my current WIP, Troika (subject to change). Things had been going pretty well all afternoon at the day job. Ideas were flowing, notes were written, and I was excited to get home and put it down on paper. Houston, we have a problem. As soon as my monitor lit up, it fried my brain. YES…shot particles of light through my optic cord into my frontal lobe.

Unfortunately, this led to me not being able to form a cohesive sentence, let alone a riveting scene. Slowly I pushed the small silver button, shoved my computer to the side, and vegged out by counting the bug splat designs on the ceiling. Nope…not a productive evening at all. That’s alright though! It’s all part of the process. Some days you’re firing on all cylinders, some days…well, you get the point.
