Every time I read a novel, I experience two stories simultaneously — the one that’s written down on the pages of the book, and the one in my head of how I would have written it.
I feel groggy and dazed, and need time to remember which world I’m in.
I found this picture on Pinterest (definitely not one of my crappy doodles, lol), and I thought that it perfectly fit the novel that I’m currently writing.
But the rest is still a secret. 😉
Remember how I said that I have problems?
This is what the past three days have been like.
This song was one of the inspirations I used for my current novel-in-progress.
Though honestly, I’m probably the only person who’s going to understand the connection, ha ha.
Inspiration is funny like that.
One of my goals in life is to have an angel statue standing over my grave.
When I was growing up, I wanted to be a recluse.
Which is exactly how I ended up married with children, right? Ha ha!
I’m not going to teach you how to write. Basic grammar is taught in school, and everything else comes with practice and experience. Use your brain and your talent, don’t be afraid to write a few crappy novels before you get the knack of it, and you’ll be fine. Besides, those crappy novels just might become best sellers — you never know these days.
I used to read blogs written by some of my favorite authors. I never cared about their technique, and didn’t visit their blog because I wanted to know how they did it. I wanted to know about them, as a person. Who were they? What were they like? What hobbies and interests did they have? Were they total weirdos like me?
I use my time differently now, so I don’t follow very many blogs anymore. I still have the same interest as before: I want to know about the author behind the stories.
The purpose of my blog is to answer that question for you. This is what I’m like.
I know that I don’t update enough, but hang with me and we’ll have some fun, lol.
