Hello Blog

Diary Entry

I feel like, I imagine, Willie Nelson going into his garage and writing Hello Walls. One of his biggest hits in my opinion… oh who really knows? He has more hits than I can count on two hands, and both sets of my toes. (You have two sets of toes, why yes, I do.) The reason I feel like I was locked out of my house by my spouse (oh look, I rhymed,) you ask? WELL. I have not done much writing, blogging, or anything for that matter. Scrapbooking? No. Reading? No. Keeping up with anything I vowed to do in 2013? NO.

I am having a tough time putting pen to paper (or fingers to keys, if you will.) I am struggling with where my story is going, how my characters are evolving, and my over all outline for my series. The objective of each book is clear, the steps getting there are kind of foggy. You see I have the schedule. If all does not go according to this schedule (which it hasn’t) I have failed… miserably. No, seriously. I feel like I should be doing so much better… but alas, I am not.

So whats a girl to do? I am going to reread my finished draft of the first novel in my series and I shall reread the first 30,000 words to the first half of my second novel. I’m hoping that will spark some inspiration and help bind me to my chair. I don’t know how this is going to work… it’s worked before so I’m hoping it helps now!

Enough about me, how have you been? I fell like we haven’t talked in ages, oh wait, we haven’t… -Jordan

  1. New Years resolutions? Vows for 2013? My promises for extra writing?

    I cannot help but agree with you Jordan, my life is exactly like that. So many things to do, so little time, so many distractions. Procrastion. No inspiration. Writer’s boredom. I hate it all, and sadly I’ve suffered through it all. Tsk. Tsk. Tsk.
    Alright, let’s see. I’d recommend more self disopline. Scold yourself if you don’t meet your goal, catch yourself when procrastinating. And no matter what: Don’t. Give. Up. Always be inspired and ready, you can do it. Now go write!! 😀

  2. I agree with Forever. Don’t give up. You know, that’s what makes writers different from normal people. Almost everyone has a story they want to tell, but most of them never tell it, or give up after they started. But writers keep going.

    How have I been? Eh, so-so. I didn’t quite finish Camp (mostly because I got bored of my novel and under-developed characters), but I am doing pretty good with editing another of my novels. I don’t really remember my 2013 resolutions, but I know editing was on there, pretty high on the list, so that makes me feel happy.

    Sadly, that’s pretty much the only thing I’ve accomplished. *sigh* But, the year’s not even half way through, right? We stil have more time to….get somewhere. (That sounds awfully inspriring…. *facepalm*)

    • If finished camp, but changed my goal at the last minute. I was hoping to reach my word cound goal of 50k I just didn’t have thme time or energy!


      • I had a goal of 52,000 words, but I dropped it a little and still didn’t quite make it. The problem was, I think, that my main character bored me. I might rewrite it in July, for next camp, with one of my other, more interesting characters set as protagonist.

        Do you know what you’re writing for July, if you’re doing it?

      • I plan on participating! I think I’ll work on the next book in my series. I have two months to get the one I’m currently working on finished so hopefully it’ll be done and I can march on with the series! -Jordan
