To Progress in Regress

Oh, such irony. I got in some excellent work tonight, I feel. And I gotta say, I feel Great about it! The thing about progress can sometimes mean regress in writing. As I work through the second half of Blizzard I have been consistently plagued by the way the second half started out, and I have revamped that in a way that I feel is better suited to the story.

Why, you may ask? Because I did not want to rush certain developments, and that was something I had done. I think it’s a societal influence, a generational marker of how things are managed nowadays. It’s not something I like to do in my writing, honestly. I believe in building the storyline, developing the characters and having those integral pieces strategically placed. Becoming an “Indie Author” has brought me the opportunity to discover Many other Indie Authors and envelop myself in their different styles. It has been enlightening, and in a way helped me to understand just how my own style stacks up. As it always goes, I know not everyone will love, or even like, my books and writing style. Yet, sometimes I wonder if that’s not a result of what I have mentioned, regarding those societal and generational influences.

Something I have truly appreciated hearing as I have listened to Air1 was that we are a pop tart generation for a crock pot God. I feel that statement is applicable for many situations, and I am just as guilty of being needy/greedy in that way. We are so spoiled with having everything almost instantly. I want things immediately! I don’t want to wait! For me, that’s just in general with a number of things (like…movies, books, tv series-I prefer to binge watch my shows @_@), but not as much for what I read nor for what I write. I love the build up, the little clues along the way. Now, that’s not 100% of the time, of course. I don’t know anyone who doesn’t love and appreciate good action scenes and sequences, and if a book is filled with them it can be a wonderful work of art. Yet, my favorite remains the build up with intermittent action.

I count myself lucky to have met the people, authors and readers alike, that I have. For my ability as a writer I’m eager to see how I can progress and enhance my talent for writing. Well, it’s quite late. I’ve patted myself on the back, gotten somewhat philosophical, and discussed my regressive progress! Take care everyone, tomorrow is a day filled with possibilities.

Amazon & GoodReads Giveaway!

Starting off the year with an Amazon and GoodReads Giveaway of 6 copies of the Paperback for Snow to each respective site, a chance to win 1 of 12 total! *Links coming soon!*

I want to start this year off preparing future readers for what is to come, and I have so much thanks to give to my Beta Readers. They have been, already, a monumental help.

While my tonsillectomy kept me from writing when I thought it would give me a great opportunity, I will be returning to my writing as of tomorrow. One thing I always seek to do, and try to improve upon doing, is showing my appreciation for the help and love I receive.

Truly, I want to reach people. I want people to know they are not alone in their struggles in all shapes and forms, and my goal for these remaining two books is to begin delving into those struggles. Future books I have been considering will be an even greater venture in the heart, soul, and mind while bringing readers to new worlds. One I am planning will even be here, in our world. Not my usual style, but it’s important. Maybe two…I think two in particular.

Welcome to the New Year, everyone! 2018 is sure to be filled with surprises and excitement, and I pray for us all many blessings!
