Rough scene done...

...but not finished!  Now that I'm his head, the villain does not want me to leave!

I found it hard writing this scene, as I'm not an evil person.  Writing about something evil happening to another person is hard for me... While I was writing this scene, my villain, of course, was too happy to encourage me to keep going.  He's a sick bastard... feel horrible I had to hurt the woman in that scene...

On a happier note, I'm going to working on the next scene, which will be the last scene of this chapter.  Then I will be starting Chapter Four!!!

Friday is here again!!!  Finally... What are my plans for the weekend... well there is the usual.  Laundry and cleaning up the house, but I'm also going to write.  I haven't gotten a lot done over the week, at least not as much as I've wanted it.

My SIL is having a girl's night, so I'm thinking I may go to that.  I haven't had any time away from my kids, and I'm think a girl's night is just the thing I need.  I've been going stir crazy with my children, and I need a break.  A BIG break.  I've been wanting to pull my hair out for a the last little while.

The most important thing is getting my writing done.  I'm starting a hard scene, just because it's my villian, and it's really hard to see inside of his head.  At least he makes it hard....

Chapter Three done...

and Chapter Four started!!!  Worked on it last night and get so much done!  I love working from my outline!  I've never used one before, and it's so easy to get the writing done!!

How did I not know of this before??  I've been writing without one all my life, that I love using one now!  I think I've found a new writing tool!!!!

On to Chapter Five tonight!!!

Very Proud of Myself!!

Last night, after not being able to for two days, I was able to finally sit down and get my outlines done!!  I got outlines done for the first six chapters... started one for the seventh. 

I have to say, I felt so happy while doing it!  I was finally able to get my thoughts together and down on paper.  It took me about two hours to get it done, but I'm so happy that part of it's done!!  I've been writing without an outline, just because my thoughts are all over the place most of the time.  This was a way for me to force my thoughts together!! 

So... I'm going to start writing today and tonight, and put the chapters together!  I'm really excited, as I've never used an outline before!!

I've Decided to do an Outline

For my book.  I was really struggling the other night when I was writing, as the scene wasn't working for my characters.  Two hours of sitting in front of my computer staring at the screen.  Was not happy!  I don't like doing that, because I've let down my characters then.

So, I'm going to sit down and start tonight on an outline for each chapter.  Maybe give myself a goal of getting five chapters done, and then go from there.  I think that will work better for me, because then I can get my thoughts organized and down on paper.  Was hoping to get it done last night, but I ended up falling asleep!  What a night to be exhausted!!!

Happy Friday the 13TH.....

...and I have to deal with a snow storm... WITH MORE TO COME!!!  This is the type of storm that when I'm home, I AM HOME.  There is no going to the store, going out to eat... NOTHING. 

It took me 45 minutes to get to work, usually takes me 20 minutes, but not today!  Saw one person off the road, which is something... I usually see about five or more cars off the road.  I'm sure the drive home will be just as interesting. 

I hope everyone has a great weekend!  I'm hoping the snow will stop at some point. 

Really... moving to Florida is sound soooo good right now!!!

Of Course...

Now that I'm done with Chapter One... I have to make more changes to it.  My character is not happy with how it is now, so I'm following her lead to guide me to how she likes it.  I have some ideas, and am switching scenes around.  She'll tell me when she's happy...

Who knew she would so hard to please??  I have to go with what she wants though... as it's her story I'm telling!!

I'm Done Chapter One!!!

I'm finally done my prologue and Chapter One of my book with the changes I was thinking of.  Took me a few days, but I've finally finished it!  Now... on to Chapter Two.  That was almost done as well, but again... changes to do regarding my characters!! 

Sigh... I love writing so much!!

Monday, Monday...

Here it is... Monday again... I had a busy weekend. I was hoping to get some writing done, but alas... no luck.  I did get some done last night, but was hoping to get more finished.  I'm liking how the changes are coming along, and would like to actually get them from my head to my computer.  My children, unfortunately, did not let me do that...

We went running around on Saturday.  Nick decided he wanted to do a family day, which was nice, but the only bad thing... it was one in the afternoon when he wanted to do the running around.  I was doing laundry and everyone was still in their PJ's.  So, that meant running around and getting the kids dressed and me dressed.  We got some new dishes, as the ones we had were ten years old.  It was time for new ones... I love the new ones!! 

We went out to dinner, which was nice, as we haven't done that in a long time.  The kids were exhausted by the time we got home.  Dylan fell asleep in the car at six, so that meant he had a second wind by the time he went to bed.  Oh well... it was a nice afternoon out. 

I did get some writing done last night.  Not as much as I wanted, but still I did get some done.  I tried to get some done Saturday night, but crashed before I could open my computer up.  Then tried Sunday morning, but again... the children stopped me.  I had just opened up my computer and started writing when both boys came into my bedroom.  There went my concentration!!

Hoping to get more done tonight.  I like the vibe I'm on with the changes in my story!!

City of Souls Cover Reveal!!

Here it is... I love it... it's the best one yet!!!

Can not wait to read this book!!!!!

Changed Things Around...

I've changed my prologue for my book.  I'll post it on here when I've got it to where I want it.  I'm changing the angle of the story... same characters, similar story line, just different... there's one character my hero mentioned to me, that's going to be playing a bigger role in the story.  Especially with my Heroine... which brings her closer to my Hero. 

Haven't written in a few days, so it's time I barreled down and got writing!  It's my way to relax, as silly as that sounds... how can I relax when my characters are going crazy in my head?  There's just something about sitting down with my computer and a cup of tea and getting down to business!!!

A New Year Begins...

It is 2012 now... I can not believe it!!!  Wasn't it just summer time??

We had a great start to the New Year... my dad came with my brother, and we did Christmas.  It didn't feel like Christmas, since it was a week later, but it was good to see my brother.  I don't see him often, and it's great that he comes to spend the holiday with us.  He brought lamb, and I heated up the ham, so it was a great dinner!!  The lamb was perfect!!

Plus, I've decided to go a different way with my book.  Same characters, same story line, but just a different angle.  Something that will make it better, in my opinion.  I can thank my cop for giving me the idea, as he was talking to me all weekend. 

The joy of being a writer I guess..... I'm thankful, that I haven't got too far into the story to change it.  I'm thinking this will be a good change...
