Writer In Motion Post 1

Hey beautiful guys and dolls!! I'm so super excited to introduce the new project I'm going to be part of! It's called Writer in Motion, and it's a a group of writers and editors who will work through the beginning of a writing project to the end.

From prompt to polished finished product. We'll go through several rounds of CP edits and revisions until the final writing is ready to go!


 This week, we introduce ourselves and talk about our writing process. I'm a sit down and write on the fly sort of writer. I love to take an idea, put a character in the middle of the idea, and just where he/she takes the story. The creative process is so fun, but it's not always easy. If (and when) I hit a writer block, I'll create a short outline. It might be a scene outline, a chapter outline, a character prompt outline, or even some backstory. My plan during Write in Motion, is to post every step I take so that you can see the entire thing, from beginning to end.


I hope this will give you a little insight into the life of a writer...well, the life of this writer (me!) anyway. The journey has been long, but it's been amazing. And I can't wait to see where this trip takes me!!

Friday's post

Hey all:)

I'm taking today and this weekend off.
A very, VERY dear, sweet, and close friend of my family passed away this week.
And we just got word that his wife's brother, (whom I love like a mother) died last night.

So she is dealing with the death of her husband and her brother.

Enjoy your weekend, my friends, and hold those you love close. You never know when they will be gone.

I will return on Monday, and will have workshop classes every day next week.

I think the more I try and slow time down, the faster it goes! Why?

Sometimes I wonder if there really is fruit in my effort? I mean, no matter how hard I try, like slowing time down, it just doesn't work. where's the benefits? Where's the proof? What do I have to show for my efforts?

Then, I have to sit back and realize, maybe I'm trying to change the wrong things. I mean, seriously, I can't change time, slow it down. That's an impossible task, so why do I try so hard to stop it? To time back, or slow it down. It. Can't. Be. Done.

When I concentrate on the impossible, I overlook the the possible.

So, I have taken inventory of my life, my goals, and the things that matter. The things I *can* change and the things I *can* produce fruit for later use.

I'm no longer going to worry about the things out of my reach.
I'm no longer going to concern myself with things I can not change.
I'm no longer going to devote my time to things that do not matter.

I missed August's posting

Hey you beautiful guys and dolls!

I missed posting in August, but I have a really good reason....

My daughter just had her third baby, and I've been in Germany visiting her and spoiling grand babies.

Woo-Hoo!!!!!!!!!!!

Just got home this week and went straight to the hospital. My mom had heart surgery. We hope this is the last one (she's already had one heart surgery) but the Dr says if she needs another one, they will be putting a pacemaker in, which she really doesn't want. All thoughts and prayers appreciated.

See you Wednesday !!

Until then, keep writing.
