Novel Except. In the Between

Below is an excerpt of one of my novel manuscripts: “In the Between.’ I’ve parked this one because it needs more work and time than I have to dedicate to it at the moment. It’s the first one I wrote, which means it’s the worst. I cringe when I read parts of it, but that’s all part of the learning process. I posted the excerpt below just so I don’t feel so bad neglecting it.

Warning: Swearing, sexual references. It’s a pretty raw scene towards the end of the book.

Finding the Forgotten.

I’m in a little bit of a pickle. You see, I had a fabulous idea. I remember getting it and thinking, “Wow, this is the best idea I’ve ever had.” Seriously, it was that good. I should have written it down, I should have made rough notes, I should have called a friend to tell them about it before I lost it. Continue reading

Strange Kind of Ordinary.

I often wonder what makes seemingly ordinary people want to write. I’m an average person, I like watching The Blacklist and Supernatural. I do my grocery shopping and wash my clothes like regular people. I have a 9-5 job, a husband and a child.

Yes. My imaginary friends are real.

 I’m sitting here on the 6:10am train into the city, going through some edits on my fantasy novel, when up pops Andy. Now, most of you have had the unbearable – I mean fascinating experience of meeting Andy in  Man meets World  and What’s in a name?

Writing – My way.

Writer’s process. I’ve read about some doozies when I was seriously thinking about this writing malarkey. How writers, write. Besides the obvious of just sitting down and doing it. How do they get the words in their head down on to paper?

Creativity in Everyday Life.

I like to think that I’ve got it together. I have my days packed and I’m busy from the time I wake up at 5am to the time I fall asleep at about 10pm. I work full time in a non-writing job and I have Miss 2 running around the place. I was asked recently how I do it? Not the scheduling, but how after a busy day, do I get in the mindset of being creative.

Oops. What if they find out?

I’m a pretty reserved person. Let’s all take a moment and wait for my family and friends to stop laughing.

Am I Missing Something? Are You?

So, this is one of those blog posts that I had to check whether or not it was insulting to my husband. He doesn’t think so, which means I am sharing it with all of you.

After the wonderful response I got from my posts Man Meet’s World and What a Mistake!, I decided to write the conversation I had with my characters about renaming them?

Hey you! Come procrastinate with me!

Disclaimer:  If you’re reading this blog you’re probably wondering what the point of it is? Well, there isn’t one and I’m sorry about that. I’m procrastinating. It’s a perfect time to write this blog because I am procrastinating about writing about procrastination. I’m at my desk and have just devoured a whole plate of baklava and coffee and now I’m buzzed on sugar and sweet black caffeine and I don’t want to write.

Procrastination

I’ll just rest for a little…
