Back to reality

My last long weekend...well until Thanksgiving, I've been burning the midnight oil writing as the days of going back to work gets shorter. This summer I did a lot of writing/editing/revisions yesterday I did revisions for a few hours, and then looked outside and when I saw my girls playing I stopped.

Those moments I cherish, although my dear husband didn't mind watching them I didn't go back and write, Tuesday I go back to work and my new routine in which I will not write during the week its hard on my system because I have to get up at 5:00a.m. each ,morning and on the highway before 7:00a.m. and get to work for 8:15a.m. Its 3:15 a.m. I cannot sleep so I am writing this blog and I will feel it later on so I bid you good morning, good night.

One step back...few steps forward

I have mentioned a few times about my decision to rewrite my entire novel, I did so because I love it so much, I know most writers fall in love with their first WIP and sometimes its hard to let go and scrap a novel but I believe in the story the character emotional arc and I hope that the fantasy elements in my paranormal romance is slightly different than whats on the shelves. At the time I decided to rewrite my novel it was emotional because I felt like a failure but after some time had passed I am able to see the growth of my journey, I am no longer in a fantasy of getting a book deal, making it huge like the notables best sellers, nope the reality is that I will not give up but also still realize its the hardest goal I have ever embarked on and just when I think I have a solution to the journey the truth is I don't know, I have never been the type of person that had good luck, so I am holding onto the hope that one day everything will fall into place and I will get good luck for now I will continue to learn and challenge myself.
