I blame mercury retrograde

for the fact that I feel like I cannot MOVE FORWARD with this book i'm trying to write! 

(mercury retrograde is the apparent backward motion of the planet- and therefore, things from our past, people from our past, any unfinished business comes to a head during this time. also, since mercury rules communication- there tends to be tons of delays, issues with computers and electronics, etc. they also warn against signing any new contracts or deals during this time- as things won't be what they seem)

Think i'm kooky now? 

That's okay. I sorta am. lol 

Anyway, I have literally written THREE seperate versions of the book i'm currently working on. THREE.  Do you hear me?  T H R E E!  They're all written in different styles. I'm really excited about one of the styles. It's the most fun. It's the one I think you all will enjoy the most, but I'm not entirely sure.

So that's where I am right now. Continually starting over. Writing and then re-writing and then re-writing again.

I really should just put the computer down until Mercury Retro is over. But the truth is- I can't stop thinking about this book. I dream about the characters. My mind is constantly filled with them. When i'm not writing, I want to be.  But then when I sit down to write, I get stuck. 

Or bored.

Hence the three different versions.

I want you all to be excited about this story and the way I tell it. So, I know i'll figure it all out. But in the meantime, think of me, pulling my hair out while I type until my fingers go numb.

I do it for you.

lol  :)


  1. I'm pretty sure we would accept and love all three :-) SO EXCITED!

  2. I agree with Kimberly, I'm sure we will love whatever you write & will happily read away! BUT if you aren't convinced, maybe you could share with us a scene from your new the same scene from each of the three books and get some feedback. Unless of course you don't want to share, in which case just forget I said anything :)

    Anyways, as always, thanks for sharing your thoughts with us!

  3. Whatever you write will be awesome and entertain us all! My two cents - step away from the computer and the story. Give it a couple days, or more. Your answer might be waiting for you when you come back to it. :)

  4. Same boat. Re-writing a story (for the third and FINAL time). But third time's a charm, right? Here's to hoping! Good luck!

  5. How ever you write it, you know I will be buying it! :P
