When the story goes away…

Good morning! We’ve made it to the halfway point of the week. So, how’s your writing going?

Let’s talk about what happens when the story goes away. All of us at one time or another, have experienced writer’s block. Maybe it’s not necessarily writer’s block, but just a lack of motivation for a particular story. Recently this happened to me.

I was working on a story and it was going well. But then, well, I hit a wall. Before the wall, I could see the whole thing, then the wall shot up and nothing. Every word I typed made no sense and it didn’t seem to go anywhere. The story was fizzling out right before my eyes.

So, you might be asking, what did you do? Well, I stopped working on that story and began plotting the next book on my list. The other story never left my mind. Then, as if the wall started to crumble, I began to see the continuation of the book that went away.

All it took was to step away. So many writers continue beating on the wall until they’ve gotten so frustrated that either they stop writing all together, or put together the rest of the book without thinking, which is a huge mistake. Always listen to your heart. When that wall goes up, back away. If it’s meant to be, the wall will crumble, I promise.

As always, good writing and May God Bless You…

Dreams – We all have them…

Dreams fill our nights and guide our days. Some dreams are just imagination, but some dreams are real. Let’s explore them…

As a young girl, my dreams were filled with horses, grand pianos and writing… Well, I’ve made one dream come true, writing. And through my writing, my dream of owning horses can come true. If you’ve read any of my books, then you know most of them have horses in them. It’s my way of living one of my dreams.

Do you live your dream or just dream about it? Always remember that some of our dreams are right in front of us, we just have to focus on them. So, will you make it happen today?

As always, good writing and May God Bless You…

Mysteries of the Writer Brain…

Good Wednesday morning!

The writer brain is complex. With multiple characters running around, shouting out their stories. Then you have places and stories filling in the blanks. I’ve often wondered if a writer’s brain is different from a non-writer’s brain.

I saw a post yesterday on Twitter that explained it best, ‘What do non-writer’s think about?” LOL! With all the stories and characters running through my brain, I don’t remember not having them.

Just my way of thinking…

As always, good writing and May God Bless You…

Saturday Adventures…

Yes, it’s Saturday! Didn’t think it would ever get here, but finally it is here… So what now?

As a writer, you owe it to yourself to take an adventure. Even if it’s just taking a walk in your backyard. I do my best plotting on long walks. Oh, and don’t forget about people watching. It’s a great way to study mannerisms. So get out the door and explore the world around you.

As always, good writing and May God Bless You…
