@realdonaldtrump… I do not understand why he is still wreaking havoc against himself….doesn’t he understand that his Brand is now (always has been in my opinion) ruined. People can see he lies right and left and he has basically confessed to sexual assault. This man is not a man, this man is not a christian, this man does not care about anyone but himself. He is not ready for prime time…to put it in the words that he would understand.
Sorry to say for the past few days I have not been in a writing mood. I had a new story idea (from a dream I had), I did get all the pertinent info down on paper but for some reason I just am not in the “mood” to write. Long hand or Scrivener I just don’t feel like it.
I am thinking it is because I have so much going on in my life right at the moment, new job, bills, bills, bills that my mind is taken up with the stress from these worries.
As far as my new story idea…that is all I have. It is like my brain has stopped trying to be creative and now that adds more stress….gahhhhhh.
I need a Calgon moment or week.
I do not journal. I know, I know, most writers do journal, but to me I find it to be tedious. There I said, whew! I hope they don’t kick me out of the writers club.
Sometimes I get the urge to journal, I get out my compostition notebook and a fresh pen or pencil, write the date and then………nothing. It seems that my brain freezes and not a word can be written or if my brain doesn’t freeze and I am able to write a few words they are mostly Word Salad (a confused or unintelligible mixture of seemingly random words and phrases).
I would much rather spend my time actually writing a scene from my current WIP (work in progress), or hey, even blogging a post.
I have read other writers opinion about journaling and sometimes I feel I am missing something but then I come back to my senses. Journaling just isn’t for me.
I am a Starbucks junkie. There I said it, now don’t you feel better? Nothing better than a Vente Decaf Mocha to brighten up my day…hot or cold it is the best. I always think I will try something else that ‘Bucks has to offer but when it comes time to order I just automatically go for my favorite.
Coffee is not the only reason I go to Starbucks–I also go to write. I know how cliched, but to me it works and if you look at it this way….killing two birds with one stone then it makes perfect sense. To me anyway.
MacBook Pro for writing, Iphone for music, and ‘Bucks nothing better!
The Girls in the Basement are making me very aware of their presence lately. I am seriously surprised that the outside world cannot see the girls working, kneading, shaping, forming all the thoughts, ideas, and story lines running through my brain.
While I sit and watch TV Chloe, Ardel, and Vivian sit quietly whispering back and forth to each other working and reworking a plot point, or an awkward paragraph. And every so often a certain point or just the right word will work its way up to my awareness and BAM! I have to turn off the TV and pick up a composition book and pencil and write, write, write what the girls are dictating to me.
The girls have been working overtime lately and I Love It!

Yep, I sure am. I love to write and write and write. Although I do not do it every day (something I really need to work on) it does not negate the fact that I love to write, so, therefore, I is a writer.
Writing (no matter what) is a way for me to work out all the thoughts going on inside my head and try to make sense of them in story form and sometimes it works and sometimes…well, let’s just say it is a present the dog left out on the grass. But, still I keep on keeping on and work it over and over until it starts to make sense again.
I have a few Facebook friends who are authors and I read their web sites, blog, and postings almost everyday trying to glean some idea on how to line edit this or cut a whole paragraph or even to dump it all in the trash heap. I have learned a lot also from reading their books and it is my strongly held opinion that you cannot write unless you read. Plain and simple.
I love to write and I is a writer!
