In the mind of a Writer

April 2014 so far. . .

What is going on. . .

Many of my online friends, who are writers, know that Camp NaNo just begun. I would love to start my second book of my vampire series, but I’m editing last year’s NaNoWriMo project so I can get the proof from createspace and get the final edit before June 30th. (This year we get two copies for only the fee of shipping.) (I also know I probably will not reach 50,000 words, between researching houses for my boyfriend, researching for book 2 of my vampire series, editing several projects, reading, and blogging etc., so I decided I just cannot do Camp NaNo this year.)

I don’t want to stop writing: I wrote over 100,000 words in the first quarter of 2014. . . I would love to keep it up, so I am writing blogs, short stories, story reviews. . . so if you have a short story preferably in the horror, suspense, occult, paranormal, or drama genres. (Please no Twilight fan fiction). I am willing to read your sent stories, and post an review. (If your story is not one of those genres, but you still want me to read, please just message me. My information is on the contact page.)

It is also the first time that I have decided to scrap a project. . . it was a short story about one of my ex’s. I think I have just changed too much as a person and a writer than to continue the way, I had been going with that story. . . However I think if I do write a story for closure. . . I will make sure I do it in one setting. . . that is why I never finished it, I kept saying I would finish it in another setting and it never happened. It’s been over five years since I had written it, (a lot has happened to me in five years. . .) However I cannot stand not finishing things. . . maybe it’s OCD. . . maybe it’s a just a closure issue. However very rarely do I not finish something that I start. (A piece of me feels like I have failed by not finishing, but I just cannot go back to that part of myself. . . it’s like a dark, dry place of land that will not grow new, valuable ideas.) Does anyone feel like this?

My goals for this month. . .

1. Write at least 25 blogs between this blog, my personal blog, and my spiritual blog
2. Edit Driving Lies Part 1
3. Get Proof for Driving Lies Part 1
4. Get some sleep
5. Work on some short stories
