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.

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. Flickr Creative Commons 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 devot
