Writing Adventures

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.


Creating the (Physical and Mental) Space to Write

The Daily Post

Over at Discover, editor Mike Dang asked five bloggers to describe and take photographs of their writing spaces. Read their responses.

When you write, are you typing at your desktop computer in your home office? Drafting a blog post on your phone, right in the WordPress app? Or are you like Deborah, below, creating your desk for the day at your favorite coffee shop?

To write in, I like a cafe with wooden floors, high ceilings, and tables with ample space. Once committed, I make the place my own. I give myself over to a familiar wafting aroma. I order an Americano, no milk, no sugar please. I arrange my piping hot coffee and writing accoutrements on my “desk,” and then I take in the sounds around me. An espresso maker sputters and whirs to an undercurrent of percussion-driven electronic beats and the indiscernible vocalizations of a female singer. Voices murmur, mostly in…

Slowing Down

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:

Cleaning Up

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.


Shifting Gears

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.



Writing Tools

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.
