Good morning, all!
I know this is usually when I would post another part to the horror story that I created, but I think today is a good day for a “What I’ve been up to” blog. Also, I need a little more time to figure out the turn I want the story to make, so no worries, the next part will be posted in a few days time.
It may seem I have fallen off the face of the blog world lately because I haven’t posted anything like I usually do, but truth be told, I’ve been so busy trying to find time for everything that has been happening. After the publication of “Saving Her: Minnie’s Lust”, things started to get crazy. Good crazy though! With my writing career starting to take off, there’s so much that needs to be done along with finding the time to start my next projects, which I have but I haven’t done much with them yet so I’m kind of upset about that. What do you do? Gotta role with the punches and do one thing at a time, right?
Anyway, on top of that, Lyft has been picking up business a lot more lately as we roll into spring, so everything seems to be jumbled right now. I’m not aggravated, I love that everything seems to be working out! Sometimes, the crazy gets exhausting and I usually write a little after work each night, but lately, I’ve been passing out on the couch.
Doesn’t help that a few days ago I got sick with the flu virus that has been going around. Yeah, I could’ve used those days home from work to write, but a symptom of the flu virus is a major migraine and dizziness. All I wanted to do was sleep. Every time I tried to get up to write, my head would split open and everything would spin causing the nausea feeling and then my fever would kick in. There was no way I was going to be able to write those days. I’m finding the time to write, it’s just not enough time I want. I want ALL the time! But, until my career takes off all the way, I’m going to have to cherish the time I make which I do.
I’m happy that winter is starting to come to a close, though. I feel the other day was such a tease because it was 60 degrees and sunny; a perfect spring day. Then, yesterday was back down to 40 degrees and foggy and crappy. Today is the first day of March so hopefully we start seeing that beautiful weather again!
Also, now that spring is starting to roll in, that also means it’s almost time for my spring blogs! I’ll probably post a spring blog once a week about my gardening or whatever I’m doing outside. The short stories will still be happening; I’m hoping to start getting back into my routine of posting a blog every few days again. Also, the lake is melting! Although, I won’t be going fishing until mid-April at the earliest because usually right after the lake melts, it needs time to warm up for the fishes to swim closer to the surface. On top of that, they will be feasting on all the dead fishes and bacteria from the melting. So, usually my fishing season doesn’t start until mid-April early May. I would like to post blogs about my fishing adventures as well when it all starts.
As far as my books go, I started my next 2 projects. Haven’t had much time to get far with them, but I started them. Project 1 which is the main project is the sequel to Book 1 of my “Saving Her” series. It is Book 2: “Saving Her: Minnie’s Love”. “Minnie’s Lust”-book 1: takes place in Ryle’s past. He is remembering the events that happened to lead up to book 2. Book 2-“Minnie’s Love”: takes place in the present. It is going to be a little longer book than the first one because there’s so much more that happens and so much more detail that needs to be put into that book since it’s based in the present day. When that one is finished, I will be working on book 3 which is the last book to the series. Book 3 is going to be “Minnie’s Story”-As the title says. It’s everything that happened in Minnie’s eyes; her feelings, her past, her story. On the side though, I have another project that I will be working on if when I have writer’s block with my series and it is called “It’s Not Fair”. It’s going to be an emotional tragedy type of book. Still a romance, but more on the side of emotional tragedy. The main character is a high school student. She comes from a broken home and tries to rebel against everything. Then she finds out she has cancer to deal with. It is going to be a very good read!! So, yeah, I’ve got my hands full right now. I honestly wouldn’t want it any other way. I like that all of this keeps me busy every day. It keeps my mind focused and I enjoy that.
I know this blog is a little shorter, but this is just an update on my crazy life and what I’ve been doing. My next blog will come tomorrow morning and that will be Part 6 to the mystery/horror story. I usually just sit down with this story and write whatever comes to mind. Like, I always have some sort of idea of how I want it to go, but the details leading up to it just flow out. My way of clearing my head.
Anyway, I’m going to leave this blog here for now. Be sure to look for the next part that will be posted in the AM if you have been following along with the story. If your new to the story, there’s links to the other parts. Hope you all enjoy the day wherever you are. I hope it’s all nice weather for you! Happy Thursday!!
