I enjoy writing it

Hi New Faces!!

Morning everyone!! (It’s Sunday morning for me.) or afternoon, evening… depending on where you are. Hope it’s been good to you so far! I wanted to say hello to many of you that have come by after my post on Instagram! Thank you all so much for checking it out!!

I started this blog/website originally a year ago, it didn’t go far, I got overwhelmed and couldn’t keep it up. So it went dormant. And now, I feel much more prepared to balance this and my other social media pages. I’m so excited to see where this goes!!

If there’s anything weird, confusing about the page please let me know!! Haha, I am no pro at this and there are always things that seems to not work how I’d like or weirdness that I might miss. So please, if you have constructive feedback on anything that is off, or anything you’d like to see here. Please don’t hesitate to comment!! I truly want to give as much as I can of myself here and give you content that you enjoy reading!

Sunday’s are my usual days to post, there may be a poetry or random thought post in the middle of the week too. Ya just never know!!!

I’ve been in a writing slump for some time now and that’s okay, ebb and flow, sometimes the writing comes in floods. And other times it’s a darn drought! I know enough of my self though that when I’m creative elsewhere, if I’m working with clients and creating for their books. My creative juice is flowing for them. And that is completely okay!! I am actually honored to give them that part of me.

I am also embarking on a new book project of my own, handwritten, completely designed by myself. I’ll include an example of what it might look like… to give ya a taste.

Coming soon!!

This is merely a morsel of what’s to come! Let me know what you think!!

I hope you all have a wonderful week ahead, stay safe out there and drink your water!! (I say it as a reminder more for me than you but still!!)

Secret

I made this collage.

As promised here is my latest poem.


Regrettable.

Sentiments cast down from heavenly notes, timbre sounds and reckoning blasts to earths unfound, struck, slapped, slammed to the ground, shattered, broken, shards all around,

Forgettable.

Pieces of me, discarded and thrown into the sea, drown my dreams, when once empty fill completely, sink and drink me, make believe, fantasy, memory feelings escape me,

Uncomfortable.

Persecute the red thief, heart bled into sleeves, ceramic tomb of bubble bath grieves, as she leaves preach your martyr beatings, confess systolic weaving needs, then leave,

Typical.

Latest Cover Designs

Hey there friends!! Hope this week is treating you all well so far. I’m ready for the holiday. I’ll just say that. Quick short post today, I wanted to share some of my latest book cover designs.

Writing Woes

Well, happy December 1st! We made it! I hope you all are fairing well and whatever may be happening in your day to day isn’t too stressful and overwhelming. I know with the way the world is right now, everyone is struggling in different but significant ways. So hang in there!!

Ever feel like your writing is just… crap? Yea?! I’m right there too. I’m 3/4 of the way done with my novel… phew that’s huge! Except, I hit a huge wall in my storyline. Certain things are out of place, there’s a few plot holes that need fixing, and the pacing is a bit rough. And I’ve got 25k left to write. Yikes!!!

BUT THAT’S OKAY!!!! It’s a rough draft for a reason!! (I keep reminding myself that but I’m still struggling…)

Apparently the message I received last week about my snippet (which I discuss under “When someone “helps.”) apparently that is still getting to me. Psyching me out. I will admit my confidence is fragile with the novel. I’m trying really hard to get it in check. And go easy on myself. That’s really hard for me though.

I’m tempted to edit what I have so far, I think it’ll give me a better idea on where to go in the end. I know how it ends… I just can’t seem to get there yet. Frustrating.

Outlining and planning have been my friend in the past, so maybe I can get away with doing that for the end and hold off on editing. I’m not sure. I’m merely venting and sharing my woes.

You’re not alone. Write the thing. You got this.

Enjoy the day and keep pressing forward. You’ve got this. Today is short and sweet. Talk to ya later!
