Tuesday's Tinted Ink

Flickr CC Photo: Black Rain: This is how I feel
Hey beautiful guys and dolls.

I will admit. I don't feel very beautiful right now. My personal life has over taken my writing life. I don't feel inspired and...

I. Don't. Want. To. Write.

I'm sorry. I'm very overwhelmed at the moment.

I'm sure you've noticed I've not been around for a while.


I'm asking for advice.

I need it...


  1. I think if you're not inspired to write, it's okay to take a break. I find that reading a really good book or watching a great movie gets me into the writing spirit more than anything else. Other people's creativity can be very inspiring! Hang in there!

  2. I agree that it's ok to take a break. But go do something else, so you don't continually think about writing or not writing. For me it's my horses.
    The other suggestion is to write some flash fiction. Find a site that gives prompts, or flop open a dictionary and randomly point. Then write the fastest, crappiest story you've ever written - and give yourself permission for it to be total crap. You never know what will come out. My first flash fiction ever actually won me $20 and then turned into a NaNoWriMo idea and just may be the first book that I publish. All from "white picket fence". And my mc is an 11yo black boy, none of which describe me. It was just random flowing with no purpose. Don't write for a goal, just write.
    Good luck!

  3. Go do something else that brings you joy. Go do something new. Don't stress you don't want to write though. I went through that for six months. It's just a season and the urge will return.

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

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.
