Connection, Connection...

So I've been working on this whole writing thing lately and I'm missing something. I'm missing that connection. I don't know how I missed it. I can't pinpoint it like I can a missing comma or a funny word. I just DON'T KNOW.

I'm looking for a writer's group which I find extremely hard to find. I'm nervous about sharing my work but more than happy to help with others. It's tough. All I know is that I'm missing something in my writing. I'm reading a ton right now too, hoping something might shake loose in my cob-webby head.

Maybe I shall have that Eureka moment soon.

Tick Tock!

Mommy, Where Do Ideas Come From?

I had a very strange dream last night. No, not the vampire and girl in a meadow-type dream. It seems like I always read about writers who get their ideas from a dream. Just a snippet and it grows from there.

I don't think I have normal dreams.

I dreamed about a robot dog named Peanut Butter.

Could this be something?

Hippo Dung

What do I love right now? The Discovery Channel's LIFE. I was captivated last night watching various fish live their lives. All sorts of fish. Flying. Mudslinging. Rock-climbers. Fish that eat hippo dung.

Yeah. It's awesome. Check it out.

The rock-climbing fish reminded me of writing. These little fish from the ocean climb up walls to try and get to the safe and beautiful springs in Hawaii, away from predators, where they can just basically chill and lay eggs and eat and live it up. Wouldn't that be nice. But not all of them make it up the slippery rock. Many fall down. In fact, most do. Let me tell you, I totally felt like those fish that went plummeting back into the predator-filled waters. Only a lucky few make it to that sweet spring known as publication!

Le sigh.

At least I don't have to eat hippo dung for nourishment. Bright side, people. There's always a bright side.

Hi! So I had this blog a while ago. I started it thinking I might be writing about my road to publication. HA! That didn't happen. But lately I've found myself lurking around the writing blog-o-shere. I love seeing people's successes! So I'm back!

But this blog isn't about getting published. It's just about writing. Because, no matter how horrible I am, I can still put words to a page! No one can stop me from doing that!


So here I am. To write about writing. I'm just not so sure about the publication thing anymore. Some things aren't meant to be! But I'll keep trying to improve my storytelling. That's all a girl can do!
