Why ya gotta be so mean??

Hey beautiful guys and dolls! How are you today? Are you writing?

More importantly, are you happy? *rant to follow

Today's world is so full of hate, mean words, hate, and more mean words. Why!!

WHY??

In the epic words of Taylor Swift, Why ya gotta be so mean?

I'm making a pledge to be kind.

Rude behavior does nothing for anyone. Hurtful words, snappy, rude comments, conniving jabs. What purpose do they serve, other than show how unkind and nasty you are?

It doesn't matter if you agree with the person or not. Why can't you simply disagree with them and go on your  merry way, smiling and spreading cheer to others.

Hey, news flash! Not everybody is just like you. But that doesn't mean they deserve to be treated like they have the plague.

Just be nice. You'll be a happier person and the world will be a better place because of it.

Try it. I dare you.

*end of rant

PS: This has nothing to do with the writing community. Just something I encountered in my private life. This world needs more kindness. Hate has become like an epidemic and I'm tired of it. I would love for it to go away. To stop. To end. That is all.

Insecure? Trying Not To Be!

There's always light at the end of the tunnel, right? It's going to happen one day. Keep your chin up! Keep writing! Keep hoping!

It's going to happen!!!

That's my cheer for the month. You know, one of these days, you're going to come to visit me, and you're going to find me shouting for joy, sharing my good news.

Until then, I"m going to keep writing. This month, it's Camp Nano writing month. So I'll be working on my WIP I started last month.

I've started a new intern position at Justice Literary, and will soon be an agent!! I'm so excited about this new chapter in my life.

Look for great changes on the blog, and keep your fingers crossed for me. It's going to be a fabulous summer:)

Until next time, be happy, you beautiful guys and dolls!!

Insecure writers, June 2015

Hey beautiful guys and dolls! Hope the rainy weather hasn't been too bad for you. It's perfect writing conditions, isn't it?

Insecurities are at their height for me this month. I'm feeling left behind and forgotten. I'm beginning to think my dream has turned into a nightmare.

I'll never stop writing, but finding an agent and getting published seems like it's getting farther away instead of closer.

I'm really discouraged this month and don't even have a smile to offer.

I'm sorry. Next month will be better! Especially, since I'm on my phone and auto correct changed month to m&m! Luckily I caught it before I clicked post.

Ps. We got moved, but don't have Internet connected yet.

Insecure Writers Support Group, May 2015

Hey you beautiful guys and dolls!
What am I insecure about this month?

I'm moving!! I must apologize for the very short post but I'm lost somewhere in all these boxes and won't find my way out until next month:)

I will visit others tonight and over the weekend!

Have a great week!

Insecure Writer's Support Group April, 2015

What happened to March? How did it go by so fast??

Crazy time flies......

So how is everyone? I hope you're all happy, healthy, and safe!

What am I insecure about this month?

1. It's April, which means it's Camp Nano. I'm tackling TWO projects. Why two? Because I have two plot ideas and they both are ready to write. Plus, I've got several days I'll be able to write completely undistracted this month. Yes, I'm taking advantage of this!

2. Our older Macbook crashed and because of it's age (2006) it can't be fixed in the local shop. Which means we'd have to send it away. Which will cost a boat load of money. Which still doesn't guarantee it can be fixed. I lost A LOT of stuff. I mean, look how long we had it? This means I lost a lot of my writing stuff, notes, WIP's and manuscripts. So... that's sad.

How about you? What are you insecure about??
