Happy Saturday! Good morning all! Welcome to new followers and thanks to those who have been following my page for a while now. I really appreciate the support. Now what has been going on in the wonderful world writing. I haven’t done much because I have found myself stumped and the flow to the story I am focusing has a lag to it.
To me it felt empty and hollow. So I decided to take advantage of my weekend to get up early before the world is a wake. I have been brainstorming for the last two hours roughly.
I have collected, bookmark and taken notes on the information that I have come across today to the point that I won’t be doing more writing. I am going to go over the information and let it settle. I am hoping that with better foundation under my feet, my writing will flow a lot smoother.
I mean that are still things that need to be filled in but I am sure I’ll stumble on them as I first this first draft. I am looking to get it completed by April as I have committed to a NaNoWriMo that is going in one of my facebook groups.

Latest news on current projects, I haven’t done much writing due to the lack of sleep, the asthma has been acting up more than normal but instead of beating myself up over the lack of word count. I am looking into new ways of writing and putting together stories.
After starting the day a bit later then expected, that couldn’t be helped as I finally got enough sleep last night to wake up this morning without having to drag myself out bed. Every time that happens it’s good thing.
I have been struggled with my fantasy project so instead of pushing things, I decided to shift gears and working on layout out for my poetry book. I had even been struggling what too as it felt a bit jumble every time I added something new to it.
I was able to organize it better which in turned help me to come up with a few poems to add to it. Its coming together rather nicely.
Update for Poetry Book:
- 959 words written
- 13591 total words
- 103 page roughly
I have been doing a lot of cleaning lately whether its physical, mental, and emotional sense. I find myself in a needs of releasing the old so that I can welcome the new into my life. Not only that I have been finding myself not waiting to look for things. Even if that minds looking for three hours until I find it. Now I am just finding things right away. I find myself moving fast while the world around me seems to slow down.
Hard to explain as I have only been in this state for about a week now. Writing has been up and down but I am getting back into the flow of things. I looking at a three year publication window. I have a couple of projects that are still in the pipeline I guess you can say and I am still working out the fine details before I jump into.
I have been going through a lot things lately that can’t really be put into words so at the moment my ability to translate it is lacking for now. As I gain experience in areas that are unknown to me I will be able to translate what’s been going on.
Ever since the start of this new year, I have been taking a serious look at my life and the balance I want in it. Even before the new year, I have been taking those steps back and contemplating what to do next.
I have been writing more often now and I am keeping track of my progress as well now I need to look into the fine details of my writing. Why am I writing the stories I am writing? Why do I feel that need to write this stories? Just shifting how I got about doing things and see how it turns out.
I have been procrastinating on posting this but I feel that this is need as I have been doing this lately to keep track of my process of my writing. A lot people feel like this could be a waste of time but for me I am putting in the effort, I would like to see the reward. So this what I have been using lately for my writing.
I have also heard about Scrivener and Scribus; I have yet to try either of these but they do look interesting. I have heard a lot of good thing about both. I am determined that less is more so I am going to be looking for specific tools and resource that do more than one thing.
In a world that is ruled by apps, I have learned that if I could find a few that do multiple things I won’t have need to continue to add to things. I am in cleaning up mode, whether its things on my laptop or things in my home. It just time to de-clutter.
