That Word, “That,” is Used THAT Many Times…

Hello there,

I should be sleeping, as it is the Sabbath tomorrow. No, I am not Jewish. I am Christian. No, I am not a Seventh Day Adventist. I am non-denominational. I digress…

Instead, I am watching Titanic for the eighty bagillion time since it came out when I was 12 and finishing up the last few edits for chapter one. =/ go figure…What I’m realizing though is how many times I use my go to word- that. (funny enough, as I typed “that,” Ms. Dion said “I believe THAT the heart does go on…” I LOVE THIS MOVIE!!! like really, im obsessed!) That is my most overused word. That…haha…and “knew/know” and “thought/think.”

This is so much dang work, but I am loving it. This is the life I want to live- I WANT to be a published author. I WANT to know that I know what I’m doing. I WANT to be able to not just be a writer, but an editor as well. This is sooooooooooo daunting, but it will feel good when I turn in a nicely written book. Who wants to sound like an idiot in front of people? Surely not I.

Speaking of surely, those adverbs are a KILLER. I didn’t realize how many of those I use, either.

Boo…I am using Pro Writing Aid and the website is being silly. Doesn’t it know it is the holy Sabbath day tomorrow and I have to go to bed like an hour ago? Rude….

I’m so happy this first chapter is about to be done. Sunday I will use to do chapter two. Since I have more of a hang of what I’m doing, I am hoping and praying that I can finish it the same day. This turn around needs to be quicker. The sooner I can finish it, the sooner I can start writing again. Or I might just do chapter seven before editing chapter two. Not sure.

Anyway, I need to also start networking on here and twitter more. I’ve been learning a lot from the people I have been networking with. =) Everyone seems to be so nice on here. Don’t be surprised if I randomly drop by your blogs!

Well alrighty…the website is up again and I really do need to go to sleep in the next 15min.

Good night everyone! Have a blessed night!

May God Bless You All!

Cover For My Book

Hey guys….

So it’s 3:31am and im still up, reading others’ blogs and trying to get my network on when the cover of my book hit me. do you know what the problem is? I CAN’T DRAW FOR CRAP!!!! like really, it’s so bad, it’s laughable. I’m just thankful to God that I have two bffs that can draw really well. I don’t want them to see it, though. they will laugh…they will laugh long and hard….and they probably won’t stop laughing for awhile. but hey, i laughed at it. lol.

The more thought i put into this book, the more excited im getting. but my problem is i don’t focus on one part at a time. i like to see the whole thing laid out: what is the entire book about? how am i going to publish? should i self publish? how much will it cost?…..all these things that distract me from the main thing- writing!

Ok, ok….i need to be going to bed soon. good night guys! =)

May God Bless You!
