A Slight Problem

Hello everyone, I had an interseting turn of events the last few weeks. I sat down to do some writing the other day and I went to hit a few numbers and then realized that the numbers on my keyboard weren't working. Talk about frustrating. But I managed to work around that. I just begant to type the numbers out in letters. So then my family and I decided to go camping for my husband and I's anversiery. We get back from camping and I decided to sit down and put what I had wrote while camping into the computer. I get all situated with my coffee and the kids are locked on the other side of the door and then....... half of my letter keys wouldn't work. My husband came running into the rom after hearing me yell at the top of my lungs! So I filled him in on what was going on. He just laughed at me and said that I would find a way to fix it. So I sat there for about an hour trying to see if maybe the kids had done something to my computer. But I couldn't find anything wrong. So after a few days of me being very un happy my husband went and bought me a new keyboard. But the thing that really bugs me about the whole situation is that I just got this laptop about 8 months ago, and I coudln't get the warrenty on it because I couldn't afford it! And so now I have my perfect little laptop that I truley love with an externel keyboard! Talk about slight problems. It isnt that easy to pack around anymore. But at least I am back to writing. Which has saved my sanity!

Good luck to everyone! And remember if you come across anything you would like to share with us other writers, leave a comment or email me at

A new idea

I was sitting at home today, when I got a phone call from my grandpa about a article in the newspaper. It was about a man that is starting a new company and he is going to be making adiuo books. He is a local guy, so I started to think about it. And I went to check out his website It made me rethink my ideas on books. I think it would be kind of cool to hear your book being acted out. What do you think? He is also having a contest for writing. So if you have never been published before go check it out. Even if you have been published go look around. I am waiting back for an email from him to see if he is going to count my PA publishing as an actuall publishing. Becuase I know a lot of the big publishing companies do not count it as a credit. So go check it out and also leave me your ideas on it.

Some Sites

Hello everyone, I got comments about my post about sites that give tips. And I wanted to say sorry to those who didn't agree with one of the sites. There are many sites out there that you have to look at some things and not look at others. But along with those comments I was left some good sites to check out. So I am passing them on to you. I hope that you find them helpful.

I hope everyone is getting lots of writing done.

Writer's Block

I sat down last night to do some writing, wait I take that back I was hoping I could get some writing done (I have been fighting writer's block). And my mind was every where else but writing. I was thinking about the things that I needed to get done the next day. So I began to write out a list of everything that I needed to do. And about a half hour later my husband came in to see how I was doing with my writing (since I have been suffering from writer’s block). He looked at the page then asked me what I was doing. So I stopped jotting down things and looked at the page. I had started my list but then started writing a story and didn’t even notice. All I have to say is, I am out of my writer’s block, the weirdest things can get you over it. But I was just trying to think of the other things that get people out of writer’s block. So give me some ideas on what else people can do to get out of it. I have heard that people just sit down and start writing and that helps. My problem with that is when I have writers block I end up deleting every word I type because I think it sounds horrible. I did that many times with “A Whirl in the Darkness”. So give me your ideas so I can put them up for other writers!

And if you want to check out two chapters from “Deadly Passion” my novel that I am currently working on go to my website at

Have a good day and have fun writing!!!

Styles of Writing

Hello Everyone, I was laying in bed last night and reading a book from one of my favorite authors, Barabra Micheals. As I was reading I was thinking about her style of writing. We all know that there are alot of diffrent styles out there in the world. She is very good on letting you know what is going on in her books. So I tried to think about my writing and I was wondering if I am the same way. And I dont think that I am that way. I like to leave a lot of it open so that the readers can fill in their own ideas! So this question is for the readers, which do you like better? Do you like it when the writer fills everything in for you? Or do you like it when you are able to fill in little things? So its all up to you! I hope you are all doing lots of reading. I know that I have been working so hard on "Deadly Passion" that my reading has gotten behind, I have way to many new books that I havent even opened yet! So for everyone sit back and think about what type of stories you like to read and let me know! Either leave a comment or email me at I wish you all a great day and lots of reading!
