When the words get blurry…

23173416364_e8f8ee489e_sGood morning! Smile, we’re halfway to the weekend.

 

 

As I sit here, working on my manuscripts in process, I’m glad to have the words coming back into my head. For the past couple of weeks, I’ve been struggling with the words. Since I had the Norovirus, my head has been fuzzy, which made for a bad writing time. I actually went for a solid week and didn’t write not one word! Although the characters were in my head, screaming nicely, I couldn’t get my head wrapped around anything.

So, what do you do when the words get blurry? Well, for me, I stepped back. But, deep inside my heart, I was wanting to write. Several times I picked up my laptop and opened Scrivener, trying to get the words to come forward, but nothing came. My characters were just blurting out jumbled up words that made no sense. Now, I could’ve written what was coming into my head, but believe me when I tell you, it wouldn’t have made the bestseller’s list by no means.

But, as I sit here, I’m smiling because the words are back. Of course, since I’m an Accountant, this is my busy time, so my time is limited, but I’m grabbing every spare moment, trying to catch up on my word count. And you know how I am about getting my word count in.

So, with that being said, I’d better get back to writing because I only have another twenty minutes this morning before I need to get to the office and back to accounting. I do hope everyone stays healthy and safe during this flu season!

As always, good writing and May God Bless You…

Coming out of the fog!

This has been one of those weeks where you want to go back, hit rewind and have a do over!  Unfortunately, I caught the cold crud that’s been going around and have been in a fog since. Finally last night I was able to get more than a couple hours of sleep, which gave me a better morning.

When you’re a writer and in a brain fog, no words come out. It’s like they’re lost in the fog and no matter how hard you try, nothing comes out. Of course this hurt my daily word count, but believe me, if I would’ve written anything, especially in the last two days, it would have been unreadable.

Hopefully today will be a more productive day and I’ll soon be back to normal. Feeling a little more energy today, but the extra sleep helped.

As always, good writing and May God Bless You…

Don’t forget to get your copy of “Seaside Beginnings” on pre-order! It’s officially releasing on February 17th…

Crisp pre-fall Morning in Georgia!

 

Well, it is not quite fall here in Georgia, but this morning was a welcome sneak peak. We actually had a cool, crisp morning. The bird’s were chirping happily as my son and I walked to the end of the driveway to wait on the bus. I was regretting the fact that I had on a short sleeve t-shirt. Since I have been sick this weekend with sinus or cold or whatever the heck has been in my head, it was nice to get out in the fresh air.

It made me think of fairs, country festivals, hot boiled peanuts and apples. If you are not from the south, you may not think of these things, but here in the south, that is what it reminds me of.

The feel of the air inspired me to work on my book in progress before I go to the office. It made me feel refreshed, or as refreshed as I can feel with a stopped up nose and sneaky little aggravating cough. Oh, well, a writer has to move forward because every spare minute not used to finish the manuscript is a wasted minute. I have a goal and that goal has not been met and closing in fast.

So, have a wonderful Monday! Yeah, I know it is Monday, but only five days until next weekend…
