Every hear something or read something on Facebook that hits you right in the gut and makes you think that you’re not good enough. It’s that small voice of doubt that gets louder and louder as the day goes by. If you are like me, it debilitates you. I come home from my day job and instead of working out or writing, I go to bed. Why? Because I don’t think my story should be heard. It’s not real, it’s made up and at times boring. I know as a writer I shouldn’t say that my own writing is boring. It’s just how I feel.
I know that it’s not true. I envy those people that can write whatever they wish and put it out there for the world to see. I know that I can overcome these feelings of doubt, but don’t. It’s not that I like to self loathe, just sometimes it’s comforting. Does that make sense?
I need to kick this habit in the butt!
I really do.
So do you!
I know you want your writing to move forward and sitting or lying around in my case is NOT helping the situation. I need to be proactive. I need to grab the day by its balls and fight for what I want. What do I want? I want to be a successful writer. How do I define success? Easy I want at least 5000 people to read my book and 20 reviews.
I’m almost there….if I count the freebies….I want to make people laugh, get mad, and most of all I want people to read my stories
So….what’s my game plan?
I don’t know yet…but I will let you know when I do.
Jail is the last place fifteen-year-old Addison Solomon expected to wind up when she ran away. Not that this is a big surprise; her life has been on a downward slide since her drug-addicted aunt died, leaving her alone and penniless.
When her long-lost father appears, whisking her away with him to his mansion and second family in sunny California, Addison soon discovers that her new wealthy relatives are not exactly people she should trust.
In other news I have a ton of writing and work to catch up on.
So I just finished a 24 day challenge by Advocare!! Lost 12 inches and 5 pounds. How awesome is that? I have also beefed up my working out schedule to including the gym. This week I am going to work on implementing Zumba and Yoga into my gym schedule. Today I spend an hour walking on the treadmill and almost burned 500 calories. Now I don’t know about you, but I am one of those unfortunate people that reach a certain point and pour sweat!!! It’s crazy!!
In other news I am getting ready to start my 4th week of class. Yikes!!! It’s another thing that’s getting real. Soon I will be graduated!! With a Master’s!! What will I do then? I mean….I work in Billing which is nothing I went to college for (psychology and sociology)
I recently finished a book, The Girl on The Train….if you liked Gone Girl you will love this book. It keeps you on the edge of your seat and the characters are relatable. Check it out!! I am going to write a review via goodreads and post a link later. Also I started reading The Martian. It has been made into a movie staring the great Matt Damon. If you read this book he’s perfect for the role. I hope they don’t mess up the writer’s integrity!! We all know how Hollywood can botch a good book!!
I”m excited for the upcoming weeks!! Publishing book, marketing said book, and even just logging in see that one sale will fly me to the moon!!!
Thanks for following me. This is the 2nd installment of the cover reveal!! Let me know what you think!!
I am working on getting all my ducks in a row for this journey. I started filling out KDP information and stopped. It was getting too real. I’m afraid. Yes I admit it! Dreams coming true just don’t happen. At least to me.
So with out further ado here is segment 2. Hope you enjoy!!
Something didn’t seem right, but I ignored my intuition and opened the door to find Jackson and Carli making out in a very compromising position. I cleared my throat and hit the door with my hand.
Startled, Jackson separated from Carli.
“Oh don’t let me stop you. Please carry on.” I slammed the door behind me as I stomped out.
