Wanted to say 'Hey everybody!' Hope y'all are all doing well. I've been out of commission on my blog due to work and writing and family and everything else.
On my mind lately as been all the ideas that spin around in my head like one of those tops you push up and down and it spins on the floor. That's my brain trying to choose one of those bazillion ideas to make my writing good enough to release out into the world.
I don't want to sound like I'm complaining about writing ideas that bombard my brain.....because its much better than being stuck and unable to write anything creative, but sometimes I just get so
The best way I can describe it is walking into Barnes and Noble...all those books.
All those choices....
When I'm writing, I have trouble reining in my brain. I write the plot in a direction...then after I've gotten in it a little, I change my mind. Because in my brain, it's not good enough or because it's just not quite right. Every time I change it, it feels like it gets better, but at some point, you have to decide to let it go and see what happens.
I haven't gotten that far yet because letting it go also takes courage. Courage I have yet to really feel. I know I'm going to get all these novels that I'm working on published at some point. I may just be 80 before it gets done.
I'd like to thank a friend, one of my 'goat sisters' for helping rein in my brain this week. She really understands how to keep me focused on the main plot and what's going on. Talking face to face via facebook and just talking instead of typing helps me a lot. We did some brainstorming and she mentioned something that completely felt RIGHT. Like on the nose, OMG, I can't believe I didn't think of that, right. So Thank YOU so much Angela Cook for helping me screw my brain back on and get me pointed in the right direction to get my MS published.
Also, I'm SO proud and excited for her! She accepted a contract on her MS that I've read and LOVED!
Can't wait to hear what the title will be. She'll have to come visit and do an interview.
See y'all later!
