I write to keep me sane. I write so that my words may outlive my life. I write to find redemption

Back To N

I have decided to work on Natalia's story for now because I am having no luck finding my way back to Pisces Rising. I still feel PR is the best work I have done to date but to write it requires being in tuned with J.S.'s voice and right now I am not.

What I am reading - The Red Hat Club Rides Again by Haywood Smith

Song Lyrics of the week-
Sometimes you wonder
if this fight is worthwhile.
The precious moments
are all lost in the tide
They're swept away
and nothing is what is seems,
the feeling of belonging to your dreams.
Listen to your Heart by Roxette

Out of the groove

I would love to update this blog more often but I am not writing much right now. I let other things get in the way of my writing and it has cause a feeling of disconnection with my WIP.

What I am reading now- The Starter Marriage by Kate Harrison

I have a theory that certain things make you feel like a full fledged adult.
1. If your parent(s) die.
2. If you become a parent.
Well neither of those things have happened to me and I, as the years passed, I didn't feel much different than I did at 18. So whenever someone comments on my getting older it never phases me. How can you be old in your twenties?
Then I got a phone call about my ten year high school reunion. After telling them "No way in hell will you see my face there." translated,in my nice fake phone voice to," No, I'm not interested in receiving information about the reunion." something clicked in me.
I knew it was coming up. ANd if I forgot my mother made sure to remind me, over and over. It's been ten years. It's time to grow up and quit the bullshit.
By the way, I am still not on speaking terms with J.S.- so no progress has been made on Pisces Rising.

What I am Reading- Leave Myself Behind by Bart Yates

Song Lyrics of the day-
now different is nice
but it sure isn't pretty
pretty is what it's about
I never met
anyone who was different
who couldn't figure that out
from a chorus line

Baby Steps

I have been taking baby steps back into Pisces Rising but I feel like I need a jolt to kick start me into writing 10 pages a day like I want to be doing. For now I will be happy with any progress though.
What I have been reading- The Ex factor by Andrea Semple

Song lyrics of the day
So here's to all the soldiers
Who have ever died in vain
To the insane locked up in themselves
The homeless down on Main
To those who stand on empty shores
And spit against the wind
And those who wait forever
For ships that don't come in

Joe Diffie song
