10 Pages Today

I wrote ten pages today and am not finished yet.  I woke up and drank my pepsi and couldn't stop writing.  So today is a good day. 

I have 7,000 words written so far on my 4th episode of Zombie Zoo.  Once I start writing, it just flowed and the words came onto the computer screen.  I know that I will have to rewrite it and then edit it but this I know where I am going and know how it will end. 

I try to write when I don't feel like it and I try to write more when I do feel like it.  Hoping that it will all work out. 

I am writing more than 1,000 words a day.  I would like to write more, but work gets in my way.  I am hoping one day soon I will be able to stay home and write.  That will be a dream come true.  I know that is what we all would like to do.

I heard that the more books you have on line, the more books you will sell.  I have five e-books on line and I am shooting for ten by the end of the year. 

so I am continue to write as much as I can so I can support myself as a writer.

Rewriting

I am rewriting before I even begin.  I wrote about 25 pages I thought I was moving right along, till I reread what I wrote and wondered who wrote that.  So now I am rewriting what I just wrote and had to toss out all of the 25 pages.

I came up with better beginning, I hope and I think and then the next scene came to be and I think it will flow better

My two days off are coming up and I plan on writing the scenes that I have planned out.  So I guess rewriting is rewriting wether you are rewriting when the book is finished or just starting you will rewrite.  I am excited about the new scenes and glad that I caught it before I went any further. 

If one writes, one must rewrite.  I just like to watch the pages pile up and when I have to rewrite, then my stack of pages go down and I have to write more to catch up.  It is all part of the process.

Happy Rewriting

Write For Yourself

I maybe alone in this, but I feel alone in this world of writing.  I have no support network, and I write for myself first.  No one cares that I write.  Maybe if I start making money off of my writing people might take notice. 

I write alone with my characters, and myself.  I will continue to write no matter what anyone says.

If you feel alone, you are not alone.  All writers write alone.  That is what sets us apart from everyone else.  I guess what I am saying is that you need to write for yourself and then everything else will follow.

Writing When You Don't Feel Like It

Yesterday it was snowing out.  I could hear the sleet hitting the windows.  I was cold, tired and didn't want to go outside.  I was off work, and that was good.  The Problem was that I didn't feel like writing.  I wanted to curl up on the couch and do nothing.  I did write, even though I didn't feel like it.

It was not easy.  I ended up writing about 10 pages.  that is pretty good considering that I didn't want to write at all.

So wether I feel like writing or not, I write.  It is the only way to get the book written.

I just up loaded the third episode of Zombie Zoo and will let you know when it is up on amazon.com


I will have 5 e-books on http://www.amazon.com/ since December.  I think that is good for me.  If I can do this so can you.  You just need to write even though you don't feel like it.

Happy Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day is my favorite holiday.  I know that it might not mean much to ones that don't have someone special in their lives, but it is not just about having someone special in your life, it is about friends, family, co-workiers.  The people you love.  It is one day, you can give someone a piece of cady or buy someone a cup of coffee, just because.  It is a way to show that you care, with no strings attatched. 

Happy Valentine's Day to everyone.  It is a day to express your love to friends, family and co-workers.

Do something for someone else to day.

Show your love

Write What Sells OR Write From Your Heart????

How does one know what to write.  Some say, write what you know.  Some say write what sells.  Some say write from your heart.

What am I suppose to write.  I finally published Always And Forever  www.amazon.com/dp/B006M8PAOA    I contemporary romance and is the first of a series.  I have been rejected 30 times from NY.  I indi published, and it is now as e-book for 99 cents.  I am very proud of the book

I then wrote a personal book about my walk with GOD.  My Bible--My God  www.amazon.com/dp/B006N0ZDGW  as an e-book  99cents

I am currently working on a Zombie series  Zombie Zoo  www.amazon.com/dp/B006K7CVLS

Zombie Zoo Episode Two  www.amazon.com/dp/B006SRK6LW

So as you can see I am in different genres.  How do I decide what to write?
Right now I am writing what sells.  My Zombie Series is selling and that is what I am writing.

I am having fun writing the Zombie series.  I am still going to write the next book that follows Always And Forever, I have it plotted out, but I wanted to sell books on line.  My Zombie Zoo book is selling and that is what I am writing.

I am enjoying what I am writing and that makes me write faster.  One need to write more than one book to keep up with the other writers out there.

So the choice is yours write from your heart or write what sells?  It is your choice, just make sure that you are true to your book.  Make sure you are having fun writing and get that book on line.

I am writing what I want.  I get excited when I sell a book and that is what I write faster.  I want to sell more books and I am a published writer.

The choice is yours.  Write what you want, love what you write. 

Let me know how you decide what to write.  From your heart or what sells?

IDEAS

I was having touble getting into my story, then out of nowhere, I came up a idea.  Where did that idea come from?  I have no idea but now I am going in the right direction.  I was stuck for a day or two, and I am no longer stuck.  I am very happy about that.

I carry a notebook everywhere I go, at work it is connected to me.  I take it on break or lunch, so when an idea stikes me, I write it down.

Now I just need to get busy.  The story is waiting for me.  My characters are standing there, waiting for me to tell their story.

Writing In Longhand

I am back writing in longhand again.  I was writing on the computer and was productive, but since my hours changed at work, I need to go back to writing in longhand.  I am taking my notebook to work with me and writing on my breaks and lunch.  So far it is working.  I need to adjust my writing as my life changes.

I am working episode 4 of Zombie Zoo and not sure what all is going to happen so I think writing in long hand will be good to come up with new ideas.  I guess everyone goes through the what happens next....

Zombie Zoo  www.amazon.com/dp/B006K7CVLS

Zombie Zoo Episode Two  www.amazon.com./dp/B006SRK6LW

Zombie Zoo No Laws/No Rules  Coming in 2 weeks

Zombie Zoo Survival Begins  Working On

I feel that it is a good idea to have something to work on at all times.  I have plenty of ideas but it is finding the time to right. 

Always And Forever  www.amazon.com/dp/B006M8PAOA

I have to write the next novel that follows Always And Forever.

So don't be a one book wonder.  Make a list of all the ideas you have and you will never have writers block..  There are always ideas out there, just finding the time to write them.

Don't give up.  carry a notebook and write in long hand and write that story.

Adjusting To Life

My new position at work is longer hours and leaves me less time to write.  I am writing on my breaks and lunch.  But getting up early isn't as easy as it was.  I like my job and it is a good mood, but I still want to write, and will find a way to write more.

I am sure there are others out there, struggling to find time to write.  I am now having that problem.  I am tired when I get home and then am sleeping longer so I don't have time to write before I go to work.  I know that this is the second week of my new job.  I was thrilled that I wrote 1,000 words the other day and it is a struggle to do that today.

So how do you find time to write?????

Let me know.  I know we all face this problem, and life does get in the way, but it can be done.

1,000 Words And Counting

I wrote over 1,000 words yesterday and still writing.  I am back on track and working on the next episode of Zombie Zoo.  I am not waiting around for the third to be formatted.

I have some good ideas for Episode Four and am excited about writing it.  I can not sit around and wait for episode three to come out.

I am going to spice up Episode Four.  With a little romance and a lot more killing Zombies.  So I am planning to write at least 1,000 words a day or hopefully write more.  So things are going in the right direction.

I found someone to do my book cover which gives me more reason to finish the story.  I need to get writing to get the story out.

Working On Episode 4 Zombie Zoo

Each episode of Zombie Zoo is a bit longer.  Episode 4 will be longer. I am shooting for about 20,000 words.  Episode 3 is 8,000 words and Episode 4 I have a lot of ideas that I want to put in.  I am very excited but not sure where it is going or how it will end.  I need to decide soon. 

Episode 4 might take longer cause it will be more detailed and more will be exposed.  The characters will be more in depth.  So I am excited.

I think that I need to be excited about what I am writing and the fact that I am selling the e-books

Zombie Zoo  www.amazon.com/dp/B006K7CVLS

Zombie Zoo Episode Zoo  www.amazon.com/dp/B006SRK6LW

I want to thank everyone who is buying my books.  My dream of a writer has finally come true.

I am busy writing the 4th episode and will keep you informed of how that is going.

Zombie Zoo Episode 3 Being Formatted

I have survived the first week of my new postion at work.  It has been a stressful week and I was a nervous wreck, trying to remember everything.

That did not stop me from writing.  I brought a yellow legal pad with me and when I went to lunch and on my breaks, I had a notepad to write on.  It works.  I jotted down ideas and wrote.  No one asked me why I was carrying a legal pad and it is none of their business.  The important thing to do is to write, and that is what I did.

I just completed editing Zombie Zoo No Rules/No Laws and am waiting to hear back on when I can get it formatted.  I am already working on the 4th installment.  So I am moving right along.

Training at work, and switching positions at work, and the new hours messed with my sleep schedule, but I am back on track and doing quite well with my writing.

So don't let anything stop you from writing and following you dream.

Life VS Writing

I started a new position at work.  the hours are a bit different and a little more thinking than just making donuts.  I now have to think and pay attention and have to figure out what time to get up to write before I go to work.  I know that this will work out in the long run, but with training and stress.  It has taken a toll on my writing. 

So I think we are all in the same boat.  Work or just stay at home at work.  I am at work, thinking I need to be home writing.  I know that that is not realistic.  So I am waiting for my two days off so I can get back to writing. 

I need to proof read my third episode of Zombie Zoo and will be able to send it out to format in a week or so, and I am excited about that.  I  will never give up writing.  I need to adjust my writing schedule and write even when I am tired. 

How do you manage life and writing????

Who Needs Sleep???

I usually work nights.  This week I am working during the day.  My body does not know when to sleep.  I am surviving on Pepsi.

Did that stop me from writing.  Nope.  I still go up early, even though I am tired.  I need to blog and write before I go to work.  The problem with working during the day is that it is more busy and more co-workers. I still have my notebook with me and am not afraid to write in front of others.

So this will be a rough week and I may not get much written but I am still writing.  I will be tired and that is okay, as long as I follow my dream.  I am the only one that can follow my dream.

Remember:  With GOD all things are possible.  That is keeping me going. 

Keep writing and keep believing in yourself. 

I think that I need another pepsi.  Have a great day
