When Your Writing Sucks...

What do you do when you know your writing simply stinks up the room?
That's how I'm feeling this week. I just posted a chapter to my critique group and know it's a bunch of garbage. I'm trying to ignore the malaise in my pacing and plot and push through to the end of the book but --gee wiz-- it's all a bunch of drivel!
Quite honesty, the problem could not be with the writing but with my mood. I'm down in the dumps and blue this week. Why? I don't know. So my critique buddies are going to have to suffer through and for that I apologize in advance. I promise, things will get better.

Nose to the Grindstone!

Hey All!

I haven't posted in a while because I've been very busy with my WIP, outlining my next story, critiquing and life in general. I'm making great progress in Can't Help But Love You. The story is wrapping up nicely and now it's time for editing. I'm not looking forward to that because I know how difficult pulling a cohesive story together can be.

My daughter's 12th birthday was Saturday and I can't believe how much she's grown and changed. Gone are the days of Bratz dolls, cartoons and cuddles with Mom. Now she's talking on the phone with her friends as soon as she gets out of school (mind you, they just saw each other ten minutes before), wanting big-ticket electronics, watching music video, and mumbling under her breath how much I get on her nerves. Calgon take me away!

Well that's all for now. Hope to have more later this week. What are you working on?

Happy Birthday wishes today to Shaniqua and Charlotte!
