It’s been a while. I know. I’ve felt it.
Life got it’s claws into me, tried to pull me down and keep me from doing this writing thing — also Game of Thrones. I love Game of Thrones. I’m rewatching the series and rereading the books.
I almost abandoned my novel completely this summer — it was my mother who encouraged me to keep at it. I’ve written a few short stories, two of which are now in the final editing phase. My novel is back on track. I’m trying the outline thing as opposed to the writing blind thing. I’ll figure it out someday.
The knowledge I have gained this past year reminded me that life gets rocky; enduring the tough days, weeks and even months with a positive attitude will build a foundation for the inevitable tough times ahead — and as life goes, tough times are unavoidable. Life is a ride, a roller coaster of ups, downs, laughter and fear.
I’ve also come to realize that writing a post once a week about something villainous is not something I want to do. I will keep the name, but will focus more on the struggles, adventures and processes of being a new writer.
Thanks for following me and I hope that you didn’t miss me too much.
