I do apologize for being MIA since the holidays. The truth is, I’ve written very little. I did work on refining my book from NaNoWriMo and I actually went for it and had it published. It is imperfect, but I’m okay with that. The mistakes are mine. I whole-heartedly love the story I came up with and if people want to criticize the occasional missed letter or duplicate word, then that is their prerogative. If someone is looking for a new story to enjoy, then mine could be a fine addition to their bookshelf.
I’ve been dealing with a lack of drive lately. I think in part it is due to my pregnancy, I find that most days I barely have the energy to move around the house. The rest, I’m not sure. I’ve always been able to visualize my story, hear my characters’ conversations before I write them, but for a while there was nothing. I would try to imagine a scene, and I wouldn’t be able to do it. My story that I’m currently working on is very important to me, and I have been writing it for years. In February, I finally found the perfect way to write my opening chapters. Chapter 1 and 2 I had no problem with, but 3 was when I lost my vision. I am happy to say that it has finally begun coming back. I see where the characters are meant to go.
I’m not participating in camp NaNoWriMo, although, I wish I would have made that commitment. I did however come up with a new concept for a story. I had a very vivid dream a couple weeks ago, and I knew this would be a new story for me. It is different then what I’ve written in the past, but it will still be centered around a female heroine. I’m excited about where this story could go. Writing a story off a dream isn’t always easy, as I’m sure you’re aware, the moment you wake up you forget much of what you dreamt. The story is full of plot holes and things that were never explained, but I’ve been able to begin developing a story around anyways.
I hope you’ll follow me once again as I continue my journey to becoming a great writer.

If you would be so kind to leave a review of my work, I would be happy to do the same in turn for you.
