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.

  1. Well, maybe the next M&M will also be better.
    There is a season for everything. Just hold on. Yours is coming.

  4. It's a sign. You need a bag of candy.

    Go, hit the store, then back to the drawing (writing) board!

  5. M&Ms sound good to me! Like C.D. said, "It's a sign." I definitely want to be published, but sometimes I remind myself that just the act of writing is exciting and fulfilling. Recording the "breathings of my heart" ~ You can't have an understanding of heart without some struggles; it's just so darn hard sometimes. Keep plugging! Hugs to you!

  7. Rain is great writing weather. Wish we had some here :(

    I'm bummed about finding a publisher for my women's fic trilogy too. I wonder if I should just give it up and move on to something else. Hard to put down that many years of work though.

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
