Thank you for the likes and follows.

How has everyone been?  I am doing well.  As stated previously, the struggle to juggle a working life and a writing life.

I had planned to write something about the year of the Rabbit. But then the tragedy in California happened and I’m sorry about that. There are a lot of people grieving right now and there is nothing we can do.

In the story Gothic I have reached the novel trigger. There is a problem but I just haven’t been able to identify it yet. It could be that the idea and premise are not as strong as I thought. It was a trunk novel and maybe it should stay that way. I will be taking some time to do research and figure out what exactly is giving me a problem.

The other thing I have been doing is avoiding Connection Lost. I couldn’t name this type of resistance. A hard copy of Connection Lost goes with me to my day job or I can listen to it on my phone. Now I think it is because I feel the spark of that story is lost. It is a very rough draft and there are many errors and inconsistencies, doubts rose up but they are the usual doubts- ie. this story is cliche; this story makes no sense, etc. These feelings builds-up and since I am good at giving up, my fear is that I won’t be able to find the spark of the story and continue with it the end. This was not thought up until I typed it here. This is why I love writing. It has always cleared my mind.

This week along with researching character development. I will be looking into the writer’s mindset. I have a craft book by Joanna Penn that might be helpful. Not sure if I should mention what I am reading or listening to. The manhwa Survival Marriage by Wann went into a confusing narrative for me and I paused on it. I don’t know if I mentioned it before but I started to read a book by Angela J. Ford called Song of the Dawn. I believe it is an Amazon-Exclusive book, therefore free on Kindle Unlimited. It seems to be a series and I plan to read the books available. I am listening to Dhampir by Barb and J.C. Hendee. It is the first book in the Noble Dead series. I have read the series but lost my hard copies to moving between Georgia and New York. The perks of digital books.

That is all I can write for now. I hope these late words find you all doing well. Remember to be kind.
