Oh The Holidays…

Christmas is almost here and I haven’t started shopping yet. Typically, I’m on top of my game but not this year. Writing has been put off to the side but I try to squeeze it in. Although, I feel like it’s not going anywhere right now.

It’s hard to get on the roller coaster of writing everyday. Even getting a thousand words seems like a dire chore that I’d rather set aside. Instead, I’ve been editing and going over some new stories in the works. There’s a novella I’d like to submit to a publisher and another novel I’m about half way finished with.

Aside from my writing world, we’re finally getting settled in the house and put up a Christmas tree! My future in laws didn’t want their big tree anymore, so I gladly took it. The holiday season is hectic and stressful, but I do like the beauty from the lights.

This year has had it’s challenges, but a lot of good has come from it. I’m very happy to be in my own place starting new memories. I hope to make many more.

I hope everyone is having a good holiday season! I better start my shopping now. 🙂

Story Ideas

I may not get to write everyday, but I’m always thinking of new ideas. Currently, there’s a list on my phone of just story concepts, some of them I implement and some never see the light of day.

I try to look at everything as a possible idea. Some people I come across inspire a new character trait and life events can make a great chapter. I’m always open to possibilities.

When I’m experiencing writers block, I take it one idea at a time. This has helped me get out of a rut and write something rather than leave an empty page.

I’m trying to  keep this in mind as I get through a dry spell right now. How is everyone else’s WIP going?
