Back to Writing

writerHello everyone!

My mood has greatly improved over the last few days. I finally feel like doing things again. I want to work on my book again.  I actually am working on electrical panels again instead of barely getting by. Now, if only the electrical room didn’t feel like 100 degrees inside due to the sun and the lack of a working air conditioner, I might get more accomplished. Damn that room is HOT!

I finally heard back from one of my beta readers. She raised some very important issues and had great suggestions, but how do you take the criticism and not want to rewrite your entire novel? My books a mess. Great. Now I have other readers reading the same thing and I wonder if they are have trouble with it. 😦

I don’t know when I’ll ever finish my book. At this rate, I’d rather take time to get it right than to worry about time. Hopefully, a literary agent will pick it up sometime. I just don’t know when I will be able to submit.

Kickin it!

beating someoneHello everyone! I hope all is well. Happy belated 4th of July!

I woke up today feeling some aches and pains, but my mood is 10x better.

I didn’t write a post earlier because I just couldn’t find the motivation to do so. Seven days ago… it was really bad. I was even afraid that those little glimpses of suicidal thoughts were going to consume me. I don’t know what happened, but the vitamin D supplement I’m taking now must have kicked it. I feel so much better.

Physically though the 4th of July kicked my butt because I helped my service club with their huge celebration. I spent a total of 28 hours in a 3 day period working food stand, car show, & ticket booth. There were so many people!  It was fun, but I wish I could have relaxed and took it in more. I was lucky my mood started to improve before then or I would have been crying in the corner.

I feel like I’ve kicked this bad mood’s ass now. I feel my Give-A-Damn is back, but now I want to scream at a few people for being lazy asses at work while I was under the weather. Grrr!
