2015 is going to be a year of getting rid of the old, so 2016 can be getting ready for the new. From this point on until Dec 31, I will getting rid of negative, old things in my life that do not mean anything anymore.
I am doing a few things new year. . . like a new pen name. I will still be Rebekah, but I found out that Wolveire is more related to wolverine or wolf than vampire. I also got that surname from my ex . . . so I think I am going my own route and culture seeking a pen name. I use a pen name simply to keep my writing life and personal life separate.
I have had horrible writer’s block this year. I hope that next year my muses, character, and plot bunnies will want their stories heard.
As for NaNoWriMo, I was trying to work on a memoir, but things happened and I ended up working on a previous project. I am at 44.4K, right now and I plan to get the 5.6 K finished before November 30th. It is very probable.
I have learned that things can easily distract me. . . cleaning, family, art, Netflix, facebook, youtube, experience project, google, health issues etc
Well, these distractions have helped and hindered me. However I am determined next year to minimize these distractions. Without these distractions, I would have written more prompts in October. http://Rebekah1213.wordpress.com
I have been very grateful this year, even though it has not turned out the way that I want it. Here is a list of things I am grateful for. . . https://spiritualbeck.wordpress.com/2015/11/27/spirit-coaster/
I’ve been having serious issues with writing this year. . . last year I had over a quarter of a million words written, but this year I can barely get ten thousand a month. I could get through Camp NaNo in April.
I know I want to write. . . screw it, I need to write. I just feel like my muses went on a long vacation, and my character will not talk directly to me. They only talk when my muses are around; it’s like they need the middle man to tell their stories.
Maybe I need more or new inspiration. . .
Maybe I need a vacation (laughs).
Maybe I just need the right song. . .
Whatever it is I hope it comes back in November.
It’s crazy I have all of these ideas stuck in my head, and yet I can’t not get them out. . . it’s like they are in suspended animation. However I did notice if an idea slips out that I am usually at my busiest moment. . . always happens. (I’m trying to stay busy. . . sometimes so busy I cannot write.)
I feel like my brain is a dusty attic where the light only works when it wants to, and everything is in boxes covered with at least an inch of dust and cobwebs. I need to get inspired. . . fix the damn light and clean the dust and cobwebs. But how?
I hope my brain gets more active before and during NaNoWriMo. That is why I am writing prompts. . . on my other account http://Rebekah1213.wordpress.com
I have gotten at least ten out of twenty-five of the Loki Challenge done. I wanted more, but with family and personal issues, it just didn’t happen. Sometimes Life just gets in the way of my writing. . . it happens.
Starting September 21st until October 31 st. Then NaNoWriMo. . . . I am starting a Supernatural horror theme. . . I am giving myself the goal of 20 posts. . . Supernatural (Show) or horror themed.
40 Days of Horror
I will post these prompts on http://rebekah1213.wordpress.com
I am a very big cat lover. I just saw this event in which all royalties will go to help cats.
This is the quote:
“It’s simple, I have a love for animals, especially cats. I donate to various no kill shelters whenever I get enough free money, which is hard to come by as we all know. I have a proposal and I need your help author and reader friends alike.”
“All people have to do is buy book #3 in my Drift series, BURN, after it is released this summer. My next two royalty checks after its release will be donated to either Operation Kindness or Dog and Kitty City. Thank you very much Rebekah for the help.”
I’ve been down and out . . . my stress and depression have hit me hard this month (for varies reasons). However I got on facebook, and got on one of my liked pages. . . and it was the encouragement. . . I needed just to move at little more. (That and German Chocolate cake:-)) https://www.facebook.com/freedomwithwriting Thank you freedom with Writing, I needed it today.
I am about 6K behind, with NaNoWriMo, but I plan to really buckle down this week. I love it when my characters and muses work on a scene that isn’t even in the original outline. (It gives me a bigger word count and adds to the story. )
For those who are struggling with their muses and/or character . . . sometime just going with their flow is the best bet.
I have been filling out surveys/interviews. . . I enjoy extra promotions. Here are a few interviews I was in . . .
