Favorite Quote For the Day...

"Nothing is a waste of time if it adds to the person you are." (Love Comes Softly Movie)

I started this week in a very depressing way. I wanted to quit. I really did.


This quote kept me going. If I do something and fail my achievement, I want to say, "Well that was a waste of time."

But hold on a minute!

IF I gained help, understanding, progress, enlightenment, wisdom, or anything that made me a better person, it was


Don't quit. Keep going. Keep writing. Keep trying. Keep knocking. Keep working.

Add to the person you are. Become a better person.

Become a better writer.

Go on. You CAN do it.


  1. We are all probably tempted to quit at our most down moments, but those moments pass.

  2. Yay, I can comment on this one at least :) Hook it on to this week's Thursday's Children bloghop. Because we're all about keeping going and finding inspiration, no matter what.

  3. Slumpy, dumpy days. Hate them.

    First, sorry you were feeling blue. Consider yourself hugged and a lovely bouquet of flowers in your hand. Second, been there, oh-so-many times. Glad to know I'm not alone. I appreciate your candid confession. Finally, I like to visit your blog. You are talented, so glad to see you didn't throw in the pen (or keyboard as the case may be).

  4. Keep going, I always try to tell myself the only failure is a failure to try. Sending hugs and chocolate your way. Take care :)

  5. Excellent quote, and excellent post. I'm going. Hoping you are, too! :)

  6. Hi,(waves) A while ago you told me you never felt so much joy as you did when you were writing. Remember that in the off days, knowing you'll feel like that again, soon. Until then keep on keeping on.
    take care,

  7. Lol, this is the gist of my most recent blog post, but way more inspiring. My mom basically told me today that she doesn't think I'll make it as an author.

  8. Phew, I know that cruddy feeling. Cyber hugs your way (((hugs))). But you have the right attitude. Keep on, keeping on!

  9. You have such a fun blog here! It is nice to meet you :) I love this post because it is such a great reminder that maybe word count and page numbers are not as important as our personal growth. I'm excited to read more of your posts!

Writer In Motion CP feedback

Hey beautiful guys and dolls! Here it is! My CP feedback edited story. Had a hard time with this, but I hope it makes sense. I've got a post I'm working on I plan to put up after Thanksgiving. Here ya go. Enjoy... Every morning I wake to carnival day.  Today, though, I have my key. If I don’t use it before midnight, my way of escape will gone. It’s a silver key with a twisted metal handle, a sapphire stone half moon and engraved stars. There’s a tiny inscription on the moon, but it’s so small, I’ve never been able to read it.I’ve always kept mine in my jewelry box, but today, I string it on a ribbon and tie it around my neck. My two best friends will be wearing theirs, too, and I wonder how they will escape this carnival of dreams. “What’s it for?” Cress asks as we stand in line for the swings. I run my fingertips over the entire silver surface. “I don’t know. It belonged to my grandmother,” I say. “Whatever.” She shrugs her shoulder in a dismissive way. “Have

Operation Agent Ink

UPDATE: PLEASE FILL OUT THIS QUESTIONNAIRE AFTER YOU SIGN UP. Have you ever wondered what agents were dying to find in their inbox/slush pile? There have been many times I entered a contest and not even received a comment, not even from one of the agents. Or maybe the agent was kind enough to leave a comment that simply said, "Sorry, this just isn't what I'm looking for, but I love the premise and your voice." I always walk away feeling unsatisfied. If I had known exactly what the agent wanted beyond, "YA" or "Fantasy" I might not have even entered a contest I knew I wouldn't win! Even more, I wasted a very busy agents time! Well, your time of guessing is up! OPERATION AGENT INK to the rescue! That's right! This workshop will help aspiring authors get on the list of an agent's WISH LIST! When the workshop is over, your manuscript will be ready to view by a group of AMAZING agents who are dying to see what you've wri

EVER Blog Hop!!!!!

I joined a blog hop flash writing contest with/for Jessa Russo. It's in honor of her first EVER book release. I met Jessa during the Curiosity Quills Blog hop. I have never read a ghost story, but after reading Jessa's query and first few pages and then learning more about her ghost Frankie, I was so inspired, I fell in love -with Frankie. I was so inspired, I decided to step out of my comfort zone and write a story I had never written before and never thought I would write. Or even want to write. But I did, and I did. My piece for the contest is a small part of my bigger manuscript I wrote. I had to modify and change a few things so the story would make sense, but I think it works. At least, I hope it does:) How to vote: Comment at the end of the end of this post. You must have the word "VOTE" in your comment for it to be considered valid. VOTING IS OPEN UNTIL SEPTEMBER 30TH!!!! Ready? Well, lets go! --> The Man With the Black Hood knocked
