Write more, Procrastinate less.

I swear one of these days I’ll actually write more on this site, instead of posting with months in between. If not years. LOL

And it’s not like I don’t have the time to post anything, because I have days off from my daytime job to do just this. I seem to be always making excuses to not do what I say I want to do.

Between my daytime job, doing my regular housework, gardening (when the weather is nice), reading a huge load of to-be-read books, and writing my own book, I’m surprised I find the time to breathe.

So this is me, making an attempt to write a little in the book I have saved. And this is also me trying and taking an hour each night to read whatever book I have on my night table by my bed.

With a combination of Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, I’m going to have to do some serious cutting off the apps so I can truly focus on my projects and complete them.

I get a sense that’s probably why I haven’t found a publishing company to take me on as I seem to be too curious as to what’s being said on the apps I’ve listed above.

So, here’s me, starting tomorrow (after work), to take my writing project more seriously. Considering I have an amazing person helping me with certain aspects of my book, I don’t want to disappoint him. And I have an awesome local #1 Int. & USA TODAY Bestselling Author, who is always encouraging me to keep going.

Hence why I don’t want to prolong this as much as I have already. I want to get this done and make those who mean the world to me, proud. I know they are already, but I’ve had this book started for a few months now, and I need to get it done.

Though, here’s where I ask a favor from you all. If by chance you are following me on Twitter, give me a virtual kick in my behind to get my book finished. Trust me, I’ll appreciate it in the end.

And on that note, I’m heading off. I have work in the morning and I want to get a good night’s sleep.

Thank you for reading (or listening to) my short-ish post.

Until next time.

New Beginnings…

At least I hope so.

There’s times when I sit here for hours, with a few tabs open, and wonder what the hell I’m doing.

I should be writing.  And I have every intention on doing just that.  But here’s the thing, how can I get my funk back to writing (or at least finish what I’ve started) when I have no idea where I want either story to go or to end?

I find myself going to the closet bookstore and looking through the shelves to see what’s out there.  What is getting people’s attention.  And what people will actually buy to want to read.

I managed to publish one book back in 2013 (and a cliffhanger at that) and I have two books that I’ve managed to get at least a quarter of the way started.  But now I’ve found myself stuck.  How do other authors do it?  To keep their focus and to spit out two or three books in a year?  I can hardly manage to get one done.

Other authors I follow on twitter will actually say that it’s not an easy life.  And I believe them.  When I started this journey, I was imagining myself writing book after book, becoming a best seller, living down south somewhere (because the snow and cold is really getting on my nerves), and living the best life I could imagine.

In reality, I’m sitting at my kitchen table (because I have no office space), eating smarties and drinking a glass of chocolate milk, tweeting with friends and wondering what the hell I’m doing?

I know I can’t focus on being the next JK Rowling.  The best I can do is just be the best ME I can be.  And how can I really do that when I have no freaking idea who I am?

Whoa!!!  That was deep. LOL

I guess the only thing I can do for myself is to make a list of things I want to accomplish for each day.  Even if it’s just being able to just get out of bed.  It’s anything that will make me feel accomplished.

So here’s to new beginnings.  To writing more, and tweeting (or facebooking) less.  If possible.

Because let’s face it, with the end of 2019 just around the corner, I want to be able to say on January 1st that I’ve done something productive with my life this year.

Thank you for popping by.

Until next time,

K ❤
