Feeling Anxious. Sort of….

So, I’ve been reading a lot of articles online about writers (like myself) who have put their all into their craft and have failed. This is not an option for me, but it is a possibility. I’ve invested my time, effort, and money into this series because it is/was my dream. I’ve sacrificed time with my family to make my dream a reality. But right now I’m feeling discouraged? I don’t know if this is the right word to describe it, but it is close.

I know I should be happy because I’m making my dream a reality. But what use is a dream if you do not succeed in it? People may judge me, but this is how I feel. I’m an “artist”. I am an emotional and complex being. I am sensitive about my work. This book is me presenting myself to the world. What if the world does not accept me? We try to promote self love, but truthfully no matter how much we love ourselves we want others to love us too. This is nerve wracking because this my inner private self and thoughts for all to see. I know I chose to unveil it to the world, but that doesn’t make it any easier.

In all this rambling, I guess I’m trying to say I just want to be successful. I want my story to touch someone or make someone smile. I want it to be a solace like so many books have been for me. I want it to be a calm in a middle of a storm.

I don’t know if this is fear or if this is pity, but whatever it is I hope it goes away very soon.

Thank you for reading my rambling.

Until next time live, love and laugh.

Help needed!

I can’t find my imaginary friends! Have you seen them? I’ve tried calling them, texting, skyping, tweeting, and facebooking them. And still no reply. I’m about to make a wanted ad poster, because without them I can’t function.

In all seriousness anyone who writes full time knows what I’m talking about. In case you don’t know what I’m talking about, it’s called writer’s block. Every writer goes through bouts of writer’s block. But, what do you do to remedy your situation? Everyone deals with it differently. Sometimes, I listen to music or I read. Other times I watch movies or I sign into my various social media accounts. If all else fails I check my email.

But, I want to know what helps you. Because right now I feel like nothing works for me. I have little moments of inspiration and then, nothing. I’m blank, empty, or just plain “blaaah”

So tweet me, facebook me, email me, call me, text me, or send me a carrier pigeon. Just send me any advice to help me get out of this no fly zone I’m stuck in.

Thanks in advance and I promise to return the favor. I swear!

Until next time remember to live, laugh, and love.

Nervous!

I am terrified! I’ve always loved reading, but I’ve never thought about writing. It wasn’t until I felt like I was suffocating in the cares of life that I started writing. I found that I really liked it. I always had stories and characters in my head and it felt good to see them come alive. I’m in the editing stage of my first book “The Introduction” in my new series “Undying Love” ¬†and I can’t wait to have everyone go on this journey with me. Their story (Skylar & Arianna) is unique to themselves and I hope anyone who gives them a chance will see that and will enjoy them, cry with them and scream at them as much I have!

This part is really scary because I’m bearing my soul to you guys. I hope you guys understand my vision, and oh welcome to Connor’s corner :)!!!
