My Writing..

Is about to start full force!

I am no longer Employed (by choice) and can stay home with my daughter, and also be able to write at every nap time!

Having this job has sucked the writing out of my life and it has put a toll on me. Dont get me wrong, I dont want to offend anyone, I am very grateful that we have an income and can survive. I am extremely grateful that my husband makes enough money so I can stay home with our kids.

I can not wait to get my story out of my head and on paper! I have had dreams upon dreams and have not had the time to write them all down.

Thank you God for the blessings you have given us!

Everything points to writing!

I just took a personality test, thats how I am procrastinating today, and I love how it describes me. I feel like everything I do in life has always pointed me to writing, now my personality is too!

Idealist Portrait of the Champion (ENFP)

Like the other Idealists, Champions are rather rare, say two or three percent of the population, but even more than the others they consider intense emotional experiences as being vital to a full life. Champions have a wide range and variety of emotions, and a great passion for novelty. They see life as an exciting drama, pregnant with possibilities for both good and evil, and they want to experience all the meaningful events and fascinating people in the world. The most outgoing of the Idealists, Champions often can't wait to tell others of their extraordinary experiences. Champions can be tireless in talking with others, like fountains that bubble and splash, spilling over their own words to get it all out. And usually this is not simple storytelling; Champions often speak (or write) in the hope of revealing some truth about human experience, or of motivating others with their powerful convictions. Their strong drive to speak out on issues and events, along with their boundless enthusiasm and natural talent with language, makes them the most vivacious and inspiring of all the types.

Fiercely individualistic, Champions strive toward a kind of personal authenticity, and this intention always to be themselves is usually quite attractive to others. At the same time, Champions have outstanding intuitive powers and can tell what is going on inside of others, reading hidden emotions and giving special significance to words or actions. In fact, Champions are constantly scanning the social environment, and no intriguing character or silent motive is likely to escape their attention. Far more than the other Idealists, Champions are keen and probing observers of the people around them, and are capable of intense concentration on another individual. Their attention is rarely passive or casual. On the contrary, Champions tend to be extra sensitive and alert, always ready for emergencies, always on the lookout for what's possible.

Champions are good with people and usually have a wide range of personal relationships. They are warm and full of energy with their friends. They are likable and at ease with colleagues, and handle their employees or students with great skill. They are good in public and on the telephone, and are so spontaneous and dramatic that others love to be in their company. Champions are positive, exuberant people, and often their confidence in the goodness of life and of human nature makes good things happen.

I love it :)....Until next time.

Writing Sample!

Here it is, I have not edited and it is only a first draft, but It is a little of what I have written so far.

The hot night was pressing against her; the realization of what she was about to do had just started to sink in. She had not seen her father since she left, almost a year ago. There was no room to hope that he would not come, he always went to the raids.
There was no moon out, the only light came from a few torches that remained lit on the path that led past dark cottages to the town center, everyone was asleep.
Lilana knew that the raid was only moments away; she could almost feel her father’s presence. Her heart beat through her chest, her breathing started to shallow, her pulse now pounding in her ears. She was on the verge of hyperventilating when William came to sit beside her, grabbed her hand and gave it a reassuring squeeze. She looked up at him and knew that whatever happened tonight, it would be alright. This was something that had to be done, the people of Charon needed to know the truth, and this would be the only way.
Lilana looked back down the road and saw 9 men walking through the center of town, her dad standing in front of 8 of his soldiers. That struck Lilana as very odd.
“Something is not right.” Lilana whispered to William.
“What is it?”
“There are not enough men, he knows something; he never goes on a raid without at least 20 men, and I don’t even see Sam.”
“What do you think we should do?”
“Let’s just stick to the plan for now”
All at once, the rebel’s stepped out from behind houses, surrounding her dad and his soldiers. Lilana walked to stand straight in front of the King. The soldiers walking behind her dad did not look surprise.
“Well, well, well, my long lost daughter, Lilana how I have missed you” the king said. Lilana looked at him, not impressed with the show of compassion.
“You will not go through with this raid” Lilana’s eyes met the Kings.
Her dad clicked his tongue, “Manners was something we should have gone to more depth in your learning, it is not polite to demand, my daughter.”
“You will turn around and leave these children to sleep in their beds tonight, we will stop you if you try.”
He father laughed, the men behind him guffawed. “Dear child, did you not think that I would find out about your little group, I have known and have chosen not to do anything, because I am confident that you all will see the truth of my ways.”
“The truth is not what you fight for father.”
“I am sorry you see it that way”
“You should turn and leave now.”
“I would advise you to heed your own warning dear one; tonight will not go well if you choose to go through with your plan.”

Blogs are a soft spot.

I have had a truly horrible experience on a writers forum.

I mentioned my blog on my first post telling people to come check it out, and apparently blogs are a soft spot in the writing community. I can not believe the animosity I am receiving because of it. I feel just icky having a blog in the first place. ugh.

Until next time.

My daughter's weaing my shoes :)

Although she can't quite get her little toes around the flip flop what ever its called.

I was going to write last night but my triplet nephews and my step daughter had invaded the computer/ play room. There was no way I would have been able to write with them playing. Boys are loud! I have two girls so I'm not sure if its just boys in general or if it had to do with the fact that there were 3 of them but man can they get rowdy!

I have gotten pretty far in my book and I am really excited about it! Having an actual goal to work towards has made it alot easier, and given me motivation. Now all I need to work on is the procrastination, which has taking the leading role in a few of my blog posts!

So no more procrastination, I'm going to my writing mode, yes I have a writing mode, its called "Not right now I'm trying to write!" or possibly "Yeah, uh huh, that's fine go play"

Until next time!

I am testing out my blogging skills from my cell phone...lets see how this works

New found motivation!

I am not sure where it is coming from, but Im pretty sure my new motivation is from the fact that I have an office job and it has made me realize that I do not want to be working a 9 to 5 job for the rest of my life! It is the most incredibly boring thing I have ever done! I am very grateful for the fact that I am able to work and bring in a good income, but I am even more grateful for this job, because it has made me realize what I truly want to do and givin me the motivation to do it!

I officially have 3 full pages of the end climatic scene of my book! Im starting at the end so I actually hav a goal to work towards, and it is working beautifully! As I write I keep thinking of what different scenes in the beginning of the book are going to be like, and my book is coming together. Im so excited I could jump and scream, but that would probably be inapropriate in the middle of work.

Thank you lord for helping me in a way that I could never have seen!
