My World of Writing

Every blog that I have written so far has been about my family. Without the love and support of my family, I would not be me.

I got to thinking about why someone would want to read my blogs. They probably wouldn't. They have their own family, and mine is probably not much different than anyone else's.

Today, I thought I would go ahead and explain a little about me and my journey into the world of writing.

I have several beginning stories/manuscripts on my computer, and one that is almost complete. You see, I have a very hyper mind. That's the only way I can describe it. My mind will jump from one thing to another in a split second. I try to focus on one certain thing at a time, but sometimes, it's really hard to do.

I can be writing on a manuscript when my main character meets another character. Then my mind starts coming up with plot for the secondary character for a completely different manuscript. Then I get all screwed up. So, I have to stop writing completely in order to refocus my mind.

Today was a good day. I kept my focus and wrote for a few hours without having to stop. I am proud of myself for being able to stay where I needed to be.

  2. congrats, i like your blog. what ever you decide to share...

    i understand writing is a challange, but the worst thing we can do is to stop writing.
    so keep it up and plz share more or ask for help or any other question you need help with.

    thx for posting, and sorry i delete this once before.

  3. Thanks Jeff! You are too kind. Considering you are my only follower, you are more than welcome to post and delete anything you want. I do appreciate your advice and encouragement. Thank you very much.

  4. Thanks for following, Zee! I think it's a good sign when writers are constantly generating and testing ideas like that -- though, of course, finishing them is also important =P

  5. You are right Rachel. I have to focus on my main manuscript and let the others simmer. I am trying my best not to break focus on my current ms when ideas pop into my head for others. I have a goal set, and I will work towards that goal.

    Thank you very much for the support!

  6. Love the blog and totally feel your pain! I've started doing an outline when I start a manuscript for that very reason! Sometimes the characters run away with my story and I'm left with a mess! They can't be trusted.

    Have a great day!

  7. Totally agree with the characters! They can be very sneaky sometimes.
