Writing Inspiration – Fiction Friday #9

Today is Fiction Friday, but I’ll be honest, I’m not ready to share any more of my fiction.  It’s just not where it should be.  It’s riddled with mistakes and I don’t have the time to fix it right now.  I haven’t written anything on my work in progress (WIP) in almost a month.  Isn’t that terrible?

I’m trying not to freak out over it.  There will be other times to write, but currently life is getting in the way a bit.  It has a little to do with the kids not having any schoolwork to do and a lot to do with the sunshine.  I just want to be outside and feel the warmth of the sun burn freckles into my skin.

I want to enjoy my summer.

I also want to be more disciplined and get my book finished.  I already have another idea in the making and it’s killing me not to multi-task.  I just do not think my pea-brain can handle writing two completely different stories at the same time.

So today I offer you some encouragement.

Here’s Stephanie Meyer’s advice for writers.  If you’ve been living in a cave without media for the last couple of years, she’s the author of the Twilight Series.

If you know you want to write, but don’t know what to write about, here’s some advice from Mary Higgins Clark.

If you’re wondering how to write a novel, watch this.

Ok, so I think I’ll take her advice and just go write.

Happy weekend lovelies!

Hope all your dreams come true.

    I had a day without boys last week that I was going to devote to writing. Instead, I worked on my Wii golf, tennis, bowling and baseball. I’m becoming quite the Wii athlete, but somehow I don’t think that’s living out God’s purposes for my life! 🙂 It’s so hard to get going, especially when you have no idea WHERE it’s going.

    P.S. I got obsessed with the Twilight saga for awhile, but when I went back to re-read, I found it very trite. And yet, she’s selling billions of books because she actually wrote down what was in her head!! 🙂

    Ok, if I’m being honest? I’ve been working on a TON of fiction stuff lately (I got really excited when you started the Fiction Fridays series). So, I sit with my scribbles across paper and am too much of a wuss to post them.

      Tori, you’ve gotta post it! Seriously, if I can post my junk, you can post whatever you’ve written. Come on, take the plunge. The water’s not so bad. People are nice. 😉

    Hi Tricia, I have tried to link a post I have been messing with for ages this morning. The link in the post is to a book I wrote for Caleb my grandson a few years ago called Caleb’s Adventure with Grandma. It is in power point and for the life of me I cannot remember how to convert it..anyway hope it goes through okay!
