Welcome to my blog, thank you for stopping by. If this is your first time to my blog, it's nice to meet you. If you've been here before, welcome back.

My writing journey has begun. The road will have some bumps and detours. I only hope that the first hill is not too high, and the journey is long.

I'm Back And I Missed You!

I have been distant from my blog this past week, focusing on my YA Novel. I did make a lot of progress. I dedicated so much time to my writing, even when not actually writing. I was more observant of what was going on around me. I took it all in and used some of it in my story. Twenty-eight more pages done and still going!

Every single day brings new things to learn about ourselves and life. Ideas and inspirations can come and go with the blink of an eye so, make sure you capture them.

Thank you to my followers, I appreciate your feedback. I know that you have been busy, too! I missed you! What progress have you been making? I’d love to hear about it.

One thing I do is I always have a little notebook with me. I have several of them. Some have specific duties: pb ideas, blog ideas, interesting names, travel journals, winter related journal...I also jot down words that I like, especially stuff I hear teenagers say. :)

Nice post--I agree that there's a lot to be found just walking around outside sometimes, all of which can affect our writing. It's good to just observe things and ponder about them--stories can really come alive when there's a portion of ourselves in them.

28 pages? Nice work!

Like Sharon, I also keep a notebook with me everywhere I go. If I see or hear something that makes me say "huh," I jot it down.

I attended my first picture book retreat. I appreciated the feedback from the small groups/critique. Really helped me. Nice comments on story idea. Needs improvement: my rhyme. So, I'm going to be revising this week. Glad to hear of your progress.

Thanks everyone for your comments and for stopping by. Notebooks are so helpful. I never leave home without one. Good luck to all of you with your own writing progress this week.
