Writer's Block

Ever get writer's block?  Right now I seem to be suffering from it pretty bad.. well kind of.    I am coming up totally empty, yet writing some of the best things of my life.

How is that you ask?

When it comes to this blog, my mind is just blank.  I need to share my pictures from this weekend, but they still are stuck on my camera.   Heck, I even need to tell about our yearly vacation to Utah that happened so many months ago.

Right now, all of my creative juices are going to a book I am writing.

I have always wanted to be an author, starting and never finishing so many books when I was little.

I started my current one a little while ago and then it just kind of sat, but suddenly I am breathing new life into it and it is exciting.  When I have to step away from writing I have felt just like when I can't put down a good book as I want to read what happens next.

Love that feeling.

Don't worry, I am sure I will share little bits and clips with you at some point I just don't think I am ready for that yet.

Right now it is all still so raw and fresh and such a huge part of me that I don't think I dare share it with the world yet; as we all know how the world can be.

I know that everyone won't love it, some may even hate it,  but for right now I am keeping it safe from criticism and the world, only to some day step back and let it go; really very much like motherhood.

So sorry little blog, right now something magical is brewing.

Linking with Shell today.

  3. Don't worry about the blog. I know from experience that they don't even mind being forgotten for a bit. ;) I'm excited to be one of the firsts to peak into your book someday! xoxo

  9. Yes, this one has taken a back burner for a while but now I am just so excited about it again and really want to just finish it- though I am a long way from that still

  12. Thank you! Yes, I am really afraid of sharing it at this point as I don't want anything to derail it at the stage it is at

  14. A YA romance/life story... hard to know exactly how to classify it yet. Here is a little blurb I came up for it last night

    “Trisha had it all figured out, her 5 year plan: college, marriage, and starting a family. A betrayal, a broken heart, and an almost worthless college degree and she finds herself on a very different course. She takes a job with the Division of Child and Family Services and soon sees and experiences things she could never really imagine which leaves her questioning who she is and what her life is supposed to become.”

  15. I feel like I love Trisha already! Can't wait to read the whole thing!

  16. Now that is a huge undertaking! I'm so excited for you!! I was about to ask what kind of book it was and then read your blurb underneath...I want to read more!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Yes-- I just hope that the flow I have going right now keeps coming. I don't want to force it but I am also excited to get it done! Though it is going to be a while still

  19. I struggle a bit to blog too, when I'm working on my WIP. They are different types of writing, a different focus and sometimes it's hard to go back and forth. We just have too many words in our head, don't we?! I'm posting tomorrow over and MMW, if you'd like to check it out. :-)

    1. Yes! If my brain is on my book it definitely seems to be the only focus and the only words I can think of at the time and vice versa.

  20. I can't wait to hear more about the book when you're ready to share more about it. How exciting! I sometimes dream about writing a book; so neat that you're actually doing it!

    1. Yes, I am afraid it will end up taking me a long time.. though now that I announced it I feel more pressure to keep writing it and going for it.

  21. So exciting! A very good friend of mine is seeing her work become published next month and she is so excited, as am I for her! What a dream come true. I am so excited for you and hoe you have all the words you need to finish your book (my problem) and see it published as well. When you come to that point in time, I'd be happy to have her contact you and give you tips and pointers on getting it published, if you would like.
