I’ve read a new book almost every day for the past week and a half. It has been great getting lost in the different worlds again. I love being able to fully use my imagination in that way. I also bought one of those big desk calendars to put on my wall so I can keep track of the tasks I want to accomplish each day. Writing in my blogs and writing my book has days scheduled big and bold so I can see and make sure I accomplish them. So far so good. I’m excited. I think I can make some serious dents in my word goals this way. Life can be so distracting sometimes, especially with a toddler.
It’s been too long since my last up date, so let me catch you up. Motherhood has been awesome and time consuming. I’m also in school full time getting my BA in Psychology and it has been awesome too. I am in my last year and working on gaining my field experience for graduate school. I have been going through some twist and turns in regards to where my son and I will be calling home, but since I’ve decided to go to graduate school, it is best we stay where we are until I finish my BA. Our next move is determined by where I get in to school.
I haven’t read a book for leisure in so long and last night I just had to read one. I miss being carried away by a story and sacrificed sleep in order to fulfill my longing. I haven’t written nearly enough pages in a while either. Poetry too. I am not feeding my creative beast enough. I need to organize my office space and craft space so I can get it together. Book three in the Ansheniu Series should have have been done already, but it is not. I don’t have writers block because there are tons of ideas rolling around in my head, so I can’t use that as an excuse. I recently got obsessed with the tiny living craze and have been plotting ways to build my own small house. I doesn’t look like it is going to be this year like I initially planned, but within the next three years I am going to build somewhere. I can’t wait to get started. Graduate school will determine how long building will take though.
My little man is 3 months away from two years old and I can say he is a happy, healthy, active little boy. Even though he started out at 3 lbs, he has more than caught up to other kids his age. We have been blessed that he has no illnesses or ailments due to his premature birth and stint in the NICU. He is such a little man, but he and I have to remember he is not the ruler of this house, lol.
I promise to do a lot better with my posts and my writing. I need to do it for me. For all who read this, I wish you all the best for this new year.

I suffered yet another rejection recently and after having a really tough and demanding at school this week, the news had me shook for a little bit. Before I let the devil sneak in and plant his seeds of doubt to deep in my psyche, I had to re-evaluate a bit what I’m doing with my writing career. I had to think about why I write? What is my motivation?
In answering those questions for myself, I had a moment of clarity. I have stories inside me to tell so I write. My imagination is very active and I don’t want those voices to stay in my head and drive me crazy so I’m preserving my sanity. I write for me and if someone likes what I write that’s even better. I may/may not ever be as big as Tolkein, Rowling, or Le Guin; but that should not be my primary motivation ~ To be big and sell lots of books. I do it now for the love of writing and expressing myself and that should always be my motivator. Not money or fame.
So before I spend a lot of money trying to get my name out there, I am going to keep doing what I’m doing with my free avenues of advertising and hope that word of mouth is enough to get one other new person introduced to my books.
Thank you to all of my family, friends, and supporters. I love you all & Happy Reading!!!

For all my indie authors and artists,
If you have a piece of work you are proud of and you are trying to get it seen in as many places as possible, post it here. What I need from you is a jpeg of your work, a bio of at least 100 words and a blurb of your book or project. If you have a trailer or some type of video to go along with it as well, send that to me too and I’ll post it.
