I could hardly believe it
When I heard the news today
I had to come and get it straight from you
They said you were leavin’
Someone’s swept your heart away
From the look upon your face, I see it’s true
So tell me all about it, tell me ’bout the
plans you’re makin’
Then tell me one thing more before I go

Tell me how am I supposed to live without you
Now that I’ve been lovin’ you so long
How am I supposed to live without you
How am I supposed to carry on
When all that I’ve been livin’ for is gone

How Am I Supposed To Live Without You By Michael Bolton

I could hardly…

I guess I’m trying to say I’m sorry,
But it always comes out wrong,
I think a part of you still loves me,
Even though we’re moving on.

Always, all ways I wanted us to be,
Always, all ways you and me,
And I wait here on my own,
And I wait for you to see,
All the time I spend alone now won’t comfort me,

Always all ways…

Don’t let your white dress wear you out
Oh it hurts to look in your eyes
cos honey I can see him

All my life
I’d hurt the ones I’d loved
Oh but baby you can turn it round

She don’t love me like you
She don’t know what you do
And it’s so hard
She don’t care what you say
So just say it, say it anyway
It’s so hard

Revise & Revisit

I have been editing, reediting, and re-reediting my first full length novel, Glimmer of Hope. There seems to be something in the water that is giving goosebumps that this will soon see the light of day sooner rather than later.

With the assistance and support of my BFFLs, friends and family, I have been re-motivated to get moving. One of the best things about working on this piece is that I haven’t really sat down and read it in about a month. It felt fresh and easily mold-able to what I wanted. I didn’t hesitate to chop off too much description, too much conversation and make the points clear.

The fun part about writing a romantic thriller is no matter how obvious the end, it will always sneak up on the reader. Or at least I hope it does. Planning to keep revising this novel until I’m confident that the final piece is complete. Then hand it back to an editor, who hopefully doesn’t have much to do.

There is a light at the end of the tunnel. I was certain that light was much farther away than it actually is. Tomorrow is another day, taking the needed few more steps before I’ve arrived. 🙂

When I’m weak I draw strength from you
And when you’re lost I know how to change your mood
And when I’m down you breathe life over me
Even though we’re miles apart we are each other’s destiny

On a clear day
I’ll fly home to you
I’m bending time getting back to you
Old moon fades into the new
Soon I know I’ll be back with you
I’m nearly with you
I’m nearly with you

Needed A Laugh And Was Rewarded

Forgive the quality as it was put on youtube this way BUT I needed a laugh so badly and was rewarded handsomely. If you need a laugh please check out why Fire Safety is important. 🙂

Creative Disconnection

I have been writing my chapter ten for the YA Breeze Series with not much issue until last night. I literally wrote everything I needed, a perfect cliff hanger ready to be set…when nothing happened. It wasn’t even like I blanked it, the scene was still floating in front of my eyes. I could hear the words that needed to be said and all the ground work has been laid out perfectly for the cliff hanger. So please explain to me why everything in my mind wouldn’t come out on paper.

Three separate ending attempts were made before I turned it all off and went to bed. This morning, I knew I was going to work on chapter eleven because chapter ten was pretty much complete. I reread the last few pages to get in the groove, tone, and character of getting the ending completed when once again, nothing would come out correctly.

Expressing my current mood/thoughts: anger, frustration, irritation, annoyance, and creative disconnection. With outline in hand, checking off each completed task has been a huge help but to this end my mind has gone into overload with colors, voices, expressions, emotions that my fingers simply can’t get right onto paper.

So I made a huge star and comments on the outline to go back, fix/work on it. However the ending that is sitting in it’s place is awful…I mean the kind of awful where a string of curses fly through my mind as I reread it and I’m mentally trying to punch it in the face. Yeah…that’s exactly where I am right now.

Attempting to move on to chapter eleven, forgetting the scene behind me but it’s difficult. The background music is no longer a help but a hindrance, TV will only distract me into being unproductive  and my brain is screaming at the top of it’s lungs ‘Get It Together!’.

At least I can be grateful that the creative juices are flowing. I just need a proper cup to fill up with.
