A Mad Writer

I’m in the process of writing an edgy Christian supernatural story.

No, I should shift my focus to a more mainstream zombie one.

Yeah, but I love to put down on paper a particular romance-adventure story line that keeps going over and over in my mind.

But…I probably should go back and revise the two short stories I wrote last year so they will stop nagging at me.

Sheesh!  Being a writer can be so maddening.  How does one decide which project to focus on????

A Writer’s Re-Commitment

fallNDpic

Happy October 1st!  Fall is in full swing now with radiant colors everywhere.  With the cooler weather upon us, I’m starting to crave pumpkin spice coffee and muffins!

Recently I had a wonderful opportunity to write a guest post for one of my readers’ blog-Don’t Give Up On Your Dreams; which consequentially got me thinking about all the dreams I have that I want to reclaim.    Especially one in particular: writing a book in remembrance of my Dad (who passed away on September 26th, 2014).   I am going to re-commit myself, as a writer, to spend the next year or so focusing on this.  From time to time, I will update you on my progress in the hope that my readers will support me and hold me accountable. 

What about you?  Is there a dream or passion project that you want to re-commit to?  Please share with us so we, too, can offer you support and encouragement.

Summer Tidbits (and a question)

Welcome to the end of summer and upcoming start of a new school year (my son starts his first year of middle school…gulp!). Things have been a bit crazy around my house.  I haven’t written or read as much as I’d wanted.  I hope my readers will understand.  I’m also hoping that in a few weeks things will start to slow down and I can resume my “normal” schedule.

It’s nice to dream, huh?

Very recently I was presented with an opportunity to work on a collaborative project (a screenplay).  We plan to start it this fall.  This new adventure excites me beyond words as I’ve never done a collaborative work before.  For those of you who have, what kind of experience did you have?  Was it positive?  Negative?  Any words of wisdom you can to share?  🙂
