Nothing like seeing addiction center ads in your Facebook timeline… Thanks Google for creeping on me and my research for my NaNo project. Which tonight… I hit the HUGE half-way mark.. 25,000! Woohoo And I actually wrote the ending too. Now to put the beginning and the end together. And it’s my favorite part of writing a novel. This is the part where the characters grow and learn about each other and it’s like meeting your best friend all over again. And I’m so excited.

I keep look at the stats… NaNo 11-5 end of day

And I can’t believe that I have 25k…

I got this. #InItToWinIt #NaNoWriMo15 !!

I think one of the scariest things as an author is publishing your work. You’re putting it out there for the world to see, and you’re opening yourself up for criticism–good and bad. The second scariest thing, unpublishing your work. This morning I had to click unpublish on both of my books because Limited holds the rights for the next couple of years. (And that’s scary too)! But I know my book babies are in good hands and I can’t wait to see what changes are made… They can only improve from here. However, the feeling of wanting to drink is there. Ha Happy Thirsty Thursday, right?

Thirsty Thursday2

And with this being Thursday, we are one day closer to Friday and the weekend. Hopefully I can get the husband talked into getting everything that needs to be completed this weekend done early so I can write! NaNo baby! 🙂 Yesterday was kind of rough. I felt like I hit a wall, luckily it wasn’t the characters fault, but my own. I had so much going on, I didn’t take a breather to write, and totally paid for it when I was writing at 11 pm last night trying to make my 1,667 daily goal… I made it to a little over 1,700 a few minutes to midnight. AHHHH So today, I’m writing. Everything else I can wait. Well, except homeschooling. That’s kind of important.

NaNo 11-5

This is keeping me in check, and I still need 1,405 for today. Not too bad for five minutes of writing. Minutes can make a difference when you allow creativity to flow. Soooo write on, fellow writers! We have NaNo to win!!

And just remember…. Friday Eve

Friday is almost here.

Have a FANTASTIC Thirsty Thursday.

It’s only tenish am here in Indianaland, but it’s close to tequila thirty! Can I get a hell yeah?! Haha As much as I would like to take a shot and chase it with a lemon…which might actually help my voice…I need to get my write on.

Tequila Tuesday

While I was editing this morning, a scene I’ve been having trouble working out in my NaNo project came to me. I’m like hit me in the face and I start crying, emotional mess, crying over a character vision. The scene is so intense and raw. And I could feel the pain and emotion the character was going through.

I used to think before I starting writing that authors were a little crazy when they said they talked to characters or cried over them. But once I started writing and investing time in my characters lives, they became a part of me. Yeah, maybe authors are a little crazy, but their not crazy for having an attachment to the characters. Those characters are a part of them…they’ve poured their sweat and tears…and even blood if they are clumsy like me and get paper cuts from their notes, into their characters.

That’s exactly what I looked like… A hot emotional mess. But I reread my notes and I’m happy with where it’s going. Maybe not a happily ever after…yet.

Deep breath, everything will work out.

Have a great Taco Tuesday!!

PrintI have been working on my story for NaNoWriMo this week. I am so excited and I am hoping to win this year! Last year wasn’t a good year as my husband ending up spending a week in the hospital… But this year, he seems to be in excellent health. I also might have threatened him a little bit too… no illness, Mister, or I’m cutting you off! Hahaa Na, I’m not that bad.

So… A little bit about Love With All My Heart… My NaNo project.

Analind Prichard and Rush Clemens have a lot going in their lives…in Portland, Oregon. Analind and I have a lot in common, she’s almost my alter ego. She’s amazing. She has her flaws, but who doesn’t?! Rush… Oh my, my. Rush. Rush is a guy we all want as a boyfriend. But I’m not sure yet if he’s husband material. He’s a bad boy. Who doesn’t love a bad body, right? But he hasn’t told me yet if he’s ready for the C word, (commitment), because he loves his women. Several women. <insert eye roll here.>

These two have a lot going on… I can’t wait to see what happens, because I don’t know yet. They are keeping their lips pretty tight on what’s going on between them. They are pretty talkative about themselves. Rush is almost too talkative… Men!

The clock is ticking and I so ready for November 1, 2015 00:00 to be here!!

Have a great Thursday, y’all!

As a seasoned blogger, I thought it would be easy to blog about my author happenings and events…

Wrongo! I am a huge fan of lifting other people up. Helping authors and fellow bloggers was one of my favorite things about being a blogger. But I’ve realized it is so hard to talk about myself. Well today, I am going to try. Fingers crossed I don’t have an anxiety attack!

I am excited that I will be writing all weekend… I have the second novel in the Their Sins Series planned out and over 15k of written. I can’t wait to share the growth of Jesse and Aeden with you. These characters are so dear to my heart! I have at least one more book planned out for the series, but we will see. I might have to change my plans up if my series gets picked up by an Indie Publisher. I’ve submitted a few proposals and I am nervously awaiting responses!

PrintSo with that up in the air, I am going full steam head on my NaNoWriMo novel, titled Love with all my Heart… Well I think that will be the title. I’ll know for sure when Analind Prichard and Rush Clemens settle down and talk to me some more. Wild adults! I can’t wait for you to meet them!

Let me see what else… I think that’s it for right now!

Ohhh! I’ll release a snippet of the second novel in the Their Sins Series, Double Crossed, this weekend! 🙂

I hope you have a fantastic day and a great weekend!!
