A place to get away from it all and write….

Thankful Thursday

I am thankful that I am able to work out!

Keep truckin along ladies and gents…hot bodies were made in a day.

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.

Friends are Golden

If I didn’t have the friends I did, I wouldn’t be here. I know it. There are those few that I can call on no matter what’s going on, they will drop everything to lend an ear. I do the same for them.

There are friends that just take you away from the reality of the world and make you realize how good you have it. They make you laugh and say stupid stuff. They get you and never judge.

There are those people that you can’t wait to see to tell things too on a daily basis!

Friends are awesome, I hope you have some peeps like this!

All about me!!

All about me!!

First and foremost let me begin by stating that I am grateful to have readers of my blog. I have been trying for several years to keep a blog up and running. I think I have it.

For my New Media class at Southern New Hampshire University requires that I post a blog about me as a writer. So here it goes.

I knew that i wanted to be writer since I was a child. I would spend hours reading and then trying to create my own world. it was my pastime for several years. I just recently decided to pick it up again seriously. I love writing and creating worlds and people. I also love the planning aspect as well.

I plan on self publishing in the Fall and currently have a Facebook page it’s under M.V. Miles. So stop by and see what i”m writing about. It might surprise or enlighten you.

Monday Madness

I feel like my brain is going to explode!! There’s so much to do and so little time.

First let me beginning by listing my goals for the week that way I am held accountable for them.

1. Keep Food Journal, 2. Go to the gym at least 1 time this week, 3. Finish Mockingbird, 4. Start Great Gatsby, 5. Breathe.

Last night wasn’t able to plan for the day ahead like I had wanted so now I am flying by the seat of my pants. I am excited because it’s a new week, which means new blogs and ideas for blogs, writing, and learning.

The Golden Globes were yesterday and I was really not upset about who won what. I didn’t watch it, but I found the information online this morning. I can’t wait to see American Hustle, oh and The Hobbit. Once I do, I’m sure I’ll post a blog or two on what I liked and didn’t.

In other news, I received two chapters back from my editor!! I am excited to start fixing them. Do you like getting edits in the mail? That leaves about 27 chapters left. I recently had to go through my novel and trim down the chapters. I had too many pages. Go figure!

I started watching American Horror Story from the beginning and I’m addicted. I can’t wait to get home tonight and watch another episode. Its craziness and I love it. However if I found out that someone died a horrific death in my house, I would not be living there. I don’t care how cheap it was.  Then if for some chance I actually decided to move in and I had neighbors like Tate, Addy, and Jessica Lange, I would be out of there in a New York Minute!!! No way would I stick around.

What about you are you brave enough?
