Coming Together!

Hey guys, sorry I've been out of the blogging world for the past few days. I'm about to go blog hopping this morning and I can't wait to find out what everyone has been up to, which brings me to a request. I am so thankful for every one of my followers. I haven't been in the blogging world for very long and I'm so pleased at how fast my blog is growing. A big happy thanks to all of you. *Hugs* In return I want to be sure I'm following all of my followers who have blogs as well, so if you're new to my blog, please leave your link. I've noticed that occasionally links aren't showing up when I click on your new pic. Don't know why, but I wouldn't want to miss anyone, so if I'm not following you back, it's not for lack of trying. If you don't see me on your blog, let me know and I will be right on over;)
Now, in other news, basketball season has started for my daughter and with the holidays rapidly approaching, (I'm so not ready) it's been a hectic few days. I've barely had the time to open up my WIP and I'm missing my characters terribly. But I was able to spend just a few minutes on Sunday adding a little here and there. It's amazing what just a few moments can do for your story, and in turn, I was able to walk away feeling a little rejuvenated. I was having one of those moments where everything starts to come together. I'm sure all of you know that moment I'm referring to. You spend all this time writing your heart out and yet there's this nagging little voice inside of you that keeps screaming "your missing something-HELLO"! (are we supposed to put quotation marks around the voice inside our head?) *Shrugs* Well, it was one of those moments. I've felt like I've been on pause for months because of that voice, and then just like that, it all comes together in a matter of minutes. I guess all in all, writing is something that just can't be rushed, and to some extent, we don't always hold the wheel when it comes to this road. So, if you're having one of those moments where your story is taking it's sweet time, let it. It will work out when it's ready, and for reasons you won't be able to see or understand until it all comes together and believe me, it will.


  1. This is so true. Sometimes I think we just need time for our stories to cure. Stew. Age. Whatever analogy you want to go with. And then things come together deliciously.

  2. Here, here! Couldn't agree more. Sometimes they just need to simmer. Always helpful to return with a fresh eye.
    Great to see your blog growing!! YAY!

  3. Wow, it is growing fast! Losts of new followers.:) I'm putting a new blog roll on my entertainment and style blog tomorrow, so I'll put you on it! But would you mind changing Life & Style on yours when you have a sec? I changed the URL to http://hipsexyfun.blogspot.com. Thanks! And thanks again for the encouragement on The Blog Entourage!!!

  4. I understand. I have my moments when I faze in and out of the internet universe. Here lately I have been out and am trying desperately trying to catch up. No internet at home makes my days very hard.

  5. Oh my gosh!!! I figured out why the link isn't updating. The feed burner url isn't right. I tried to update it, and I made it worse. Now my posts aren't showing up under "Blogs I'm Following"! And I can't get the feed on my new chocolate blog to work either! AH!!!

  6. (are we supposed to put quotation marks around the voice inside our head?)


    Picture me walking down the street doing "air quotes" each time the voice in my head had something to say. HAHAHA.

    Now, that could make a funny character... don't steal my idea! :)

    I love reading your posts!

  7. Elana- great way to sum it up.
    PK- Thanks for your support.
    Christina-let me know when you get it all figured out;)
    Regina-No internet at home. *GASP* Omigod, I'd die for sure. Sending you a hug for support.
    Margo-I love how you get my sense of humor, although, that makes me wonder about you a little:)

  8. Hey Beth, thanks for stopping by. I'm headed over to you now;)

  9. I'm happy to be a part of your blog! Yep, stories come together, that's for sure. I'm currently waiting for my novella to shift together. It's happening slowly. :)

  10. This is very true. I've posted a lot of how the muse just takes over, and when it feels like it--not before. I allow it to do it's thing. Usually in the middle of the night, or when I first wake up, I've gotta get it all down.
    That's why my blog is called "Lorelei's Muse"


Thank you for your comments. Me loves them!
