Organizing Your Writing Work Day
As writers it’s very easy to say we have a full agenda each day…right? Either we are crafting, promoting, researching, advancing ourselves by taking classes, but we can’t forget the things that need to be done in our daily lives outside of work. I have seen a few of my writing friends struggle with keeping on task, committing and I could see the guilt in their eyes. One mustn’t worry because I may have the words you need to help you organize your day and staying on task to complete your amazing masterpiece.

Journal Entry One: And Around I Go!
My inspiration was all over the place!
Because one day I thought I had my first taste of writers block, and you can ask Jon (my boyfriend) how dramatic I became! I was devastated. I felt empty. Very horrifying...
I was sent in many different directions. That's what I'm use too! Phew...
I'm really enjoying re-reading my first novel. It's an amazing experience. Enchancing the dialogue is really cool and adding so much more to the book! I'm pumped!!
I've been talking to the people who are helping with my podcast show to pick a date to start the full recording of season one! We are looking at Apirl...
I started to write a new song, but I'm not interested in music right now so who knows what this will be. Either a poem, or I'll put it in the future album tracks folder.
My new novel I am working on is coming along great! Currently trying to figure out where to take the scene- it can go in so many different directions. I can see the end result of each way, but I have to find the one that would fit the message the best!
My article writing is something else. It's definitely a challenge, but I am enjoying it! My first one was released this week! So excited! I unfortunately didn't get the other one published. I pitched two more, one got turned down and the other was a go. So I'm researching for that now!! I have the beginning drafted out. Working on the body of it.
Like always my boyfriend, and family gave me a great celebration for my 23rd birthday last week. Caught up on a few TV shows: The Following, and Pretty Little Liars. I spent quality time with my man, like always-I just love him so much.
As for now that is all I can think of. Let's see what next weeks adventures has in store!
Revamp Of Site:
My site has been revamped!
Lost Hills, and Poems are now on the bottom of the screen-mobile users can switch their screen to web view-if you want to read the pieces all you need to do is click the word and you'll be redirected!
In the About page you can notice my publications are now linked to their destination. If you click on the any of them you'll go to the page you can view, or purchase.
As for the rest there are really no major changes, but I am going to give you a little detail of what each page is for:
-Home page is for major announcements
-Blog will be linked with everything from my articles, guest appearances, and more.
-Who I Am: Poetry is the page for my poetry book, and all the amazing things that I was able to experience during that era.
-About is a note written by me, contact and publications.
-Bio is where you can read my profile and find my other social media sites.
We are the authors of our stories.
Our gestures and thoughts create the image not only of the character, but the world around them.
Have you heard of the “show, don’t tell” method? While writing my first novel, I learned a lot about this and am about to explain why it is important in your life story.....
