Novels, reviews, and thoughts oh my!

I have been speeding ahead on some projects like my first retail novel is being typed up by a friend to help me concentrate on two other novels, and focus on those. I have been feeling blocked though, and maybe it has something to do with stress from work. I will be getting a few weeks where I work only 2 or three times that should help. I am also going to type up the rough drafts, and write down notes instead of write the draft long hand…

This brings me to the next thought though. I love going on Goodreads to look at new authors to try out. I start reading the reviews, and then I see the one stars making me see how harsh readers are…It makes me cringe when I read how mean the readers are when it comes to the authors work. I look at my own, and I think oh hell this is not any better either. I can almost picture what a reader is going to say about my books…Then I think my work sucks…I think my other stories suck even if I have them polished the best they can be.

I am going to hopefully finish both the killer contract 2 and the second retail novel by the end of next year.

Any thoughts about reader reviews, being our worst critics or tips on pushing through?

Until next time,

Another Novel Done!!!

I just finished the first retail novel, and it was really fun to write. It took up a whole notebook, and some of  my Writing Thoughts notebook. The only thing is I mainly wrote it by long hand, and now I have to type the entire thing up almost which is going to take some time. I love my Film and Literature online class, and the cool thing about it is I am doing a five page paper on the book Dracula, and the movie. I will be taking a Novel Writing class during the fall as well as a Poetry one. I cannot wait, but I am not excited about the math class.

I am going to be working on the second killer novel, and second retail one. I set the first book up for the second. It will have a new character this time dealing with witches, and angels. The main character is an empathy that can sense people’s emotions. I graduate from John Tyler in May, so I am pretty excited about that. Then I will be going into Mass Communications doing print journalism. I have been working a whole lot too, but that means I have been getting less writing done. I perfected my query letter a second time, and I am waiting on feedback for my first novel.  I will let people know when the first retail novel will be out since it needs to be edited, and I need a cover for it too. That is really all that I have been doing, and I am taking a four day vacation in July to Dc then Maryland which I have been looking forward to all summer!!

I have been getting impatient with everything lately cause it is such a slow process in writing. Any tips on what to do when you get impatient?

Until Next Time,
