The meandering path of my life

Write on!

Well, I have good news. In the last 30 days, (just one month people) I’ve written 12,700 words on my story! I’m so excited! I don’t know if you are or not…LOL..but trust me, this is very awesome news indeed. I can’t wait to see what the next 30 days brings. I’m going to try and break that record. Yeah, this is a busy time at work, holidays and all that, but I’m going to try and blow that number away.

Wish me luck!

Oh, and I get Thanksgiving off! And the day after! The Universe really does love me.

Ciao for now.

Writing group

Here I am, sitting at the library, with all my writing group friends.

So, what am I doing on the computer, you ask?

I just finished a writing exercise and I’m waiting for the others to get done. What I’ve written isn’t probably all that interesting, but it’s something. I don’t know how good I am with prompts and coming up with ideas on the spot. I guess it’s good practice though. I may have to expound on the topic I wrote about. It was a bit dark. I liked it.

I’m really liking this new writing group. This is only the second meeting, but it’s great to get together with other writers. It’s cool to see what they are doing and talk about what you’re doing and get feedback. It’s definitely something I need.

I look at some of the people in the group and see myself when I first started going to writing groups…first started writing my story. It’s nice to see how far I’ve come. There is still a long way to go though…and a lot to learn. I’ll get there though….it’s an exciting journey. One that I hope never ends.

Time’s up. Back to the group.

Ciao for now.

Long time no see

Wow. It’s been 3 months since I wrote in here.  I read over my last post and the events that were going on there seem like a lifetime ago. First, I got over my apathy. Second, Billie didn’t last 3 weeks before they fired her.

So, what have I been doing lately? Writing! I’ll have you know that I’m almost at 40,000 words now and about halfway done with my first draft of Book 1. I’m still going to try and finish my first draft by the end of the year. Cross your fingers.

I’ve discovered Deepak Chopra since I last posted. I love that man! I’ve read 2 of his books and plan on buying at least one of them. I also re-read “the secret” and I’m now re-reading “the magic of believing”. It’s kinda like the secret only it was written in the 40’s! This guy was ahead of his time. Maybe if I read them over and over it will saturate my mind and I won’t be able to help but think things into existence in my life. Ok, let me rephrase that….think POSITIVE things into existence…LOL.

I need MONEY! That’s what I’m going to think into existence first. Lots and lots of money for me. That would take care of a lot of other things I want…..like travelling and a nice SUV and some work done on my house and yard and I’ll be able to sit and write more and finish my book. See…I need money.

Other than that, things have pretty much been the same around here. I’ve loosened apathy’s grip on my neck and have been getting a few things done around the house. He still reaches out and grabs onto my leg sometimes and I have to drag him around a little, but for the most part I keep him knocked down.

Speaking of….I should get off here and go get something done…LOL.

Nice to be back.

Ciao for now
