Baby Boom

Talk about a baby boom! I know about nine ladies who have had babies on my facebook feed! It’s awesome to see how each mother prepares for their new bundle of joy and what they choose to share with the world.

There were a lot of sonogram photos and 3-d images that make me leery of having children….I mean have you looked at one of those things…they are a tad bit creepy. At least they are to me. I’m sure if I ever decide to have a kiddo, I’ll love the one I get….but seriously though. What if they did one of those and spotted an alien or something. CRAZY… okay…enough about that.

I have kept track of all the adorable names that are now going to grace classrooms in about five years or so….

Paxton, Declan, Ashton, Skylar, Marlon Jr., Shayden, Gunnar, Drew, Olivia, and Nora. Wow that’s a lot. Do you like the names? I do!

I can’t wait to see pics of these little people growing up!! If I have a kid I would name the boy Abner Wilson…I don’t know why. And Ruth Alice…so I can call the kid Ruthless…LOL

Okay….so that’s all for now.

Self-Doubt

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.

Thoughts on a Saturday night!!

This is the first time in two months that I have been home on a Saturday and it’s been quite relaxing. I worked this morning from 6am to noon and then went home afterwards. 

At home I cleaned a bit, went for a walk with my lovely, and then took a nap. I hadn’t taken a nap in like forever!! 

I updated my facebook page for my consultant group, check it out and add me if you’d like.

It also got me thinking that I should do something with my writing page as well. So I am going to post a short story series here and let me know what you think. I will post the first story on Monday. Any feedback is much appreciated.

Now back to Forrest Gump!! 

Enjoy your evenings folks!
