The plot thickens

I have started to really get into the gritty part of the plot now. I did have one part where I had a moment of writers block wondering where to take the characters next, but I think I have cracked that. Someone suggested that I write the dramatic parts and then go back and fill in the part leading up to it, but I haven't done that. Why? Because I think that lead up should be a fluid as the drama and I feel if I wrote it in chunks I would lose that fluidity of thought that I have. I just gave myself a moment of time and it came to me. I knew where I wanted them to end up next, so I just had to work out how to get them there.
Anyway, the characters are starting to get into the thick of it now at my end... I hope your enjoying reading the start of how they get there at yours.

Getting the word out

Its funny how as I am getting stuck back into this writing the simple fact that I have now invited family and friends to view this has made me more nervous. Complete strangers as critics was not a problem - but people you know...well now that is a different kettle of fish. I can confidently say however that as my part time escape from reality this book has been most useful, and I am enjoying writing it and twisting around the plot a bit immensely. I hope that the readers will enjoy the troubles and triumphs of the characters as much as I have. Now if I could only install a coffee machine next to the computer ....

Getting back into the mood

Well now that I have got this up on the web I have re instigated the writing spirit again. I think the motivation of others watching is a great kick in the pants to get back into mood for getting more done. I am just getting into the good bit in the book - the fight scenes. I will keep you all in a little more suspense though I am afraid - you will have to read up to that part!!

What I am learning as I go is that writing is tough. There are many days you find lots of motivation and write lots and lots. Other days when writing anything at all is really REALLY hard. I try to write at least 1000 words a day to keep on top of it. But when your dealing with other stuff in life as well its not always that easy to do. 

It has definitely given me a new found respect to authors and their trade.  I wish that they all got paid their dues for this but realistically its backbreaking work for little reward for the majority. Kudos to the few who make it to the big leagues. 

And so, enough delaying tactics!! I will post up the next part :) Enjoy...

Welcome!

Greetings everyone!

As many of you who already know me will know I have always been a bit of a book geek. Yes, sadly I am one of the sad individuals who enjoys nothing more than a good book, a glass a wine and some quiet alone time with another authors masterpiece. I have been known in the past to devour books like others devour three course meals at an all you can eat diner. But my ability to read has yet to be challenged by an ability to write. So, I figured I needed to finally take up that challenge and get off the spectators chair and into the drivers seat. It is a good distraction in my time off from things going on around here and work.
 I warn you all in advance! 1. I have bad spelling and grammar - any official complaints will need to be made to my husband as although I know its pretty bad, I personally have lived with it so long I no longer care. I will happily rectify anything pointed out to me but please don't whine. It's annoying. 2. I have a very "unique" way of writing - try to keep up. Yes, I know it can be a little fast paced. I hate boring books. They are - well ...boring. I try to make the plot thick and fast. If your finding it simply too fast and I am losing you all though let me know. I write what is in my head and hope my fingers can keep up. This is not always going to theoretically work! 3. This work is "as is" and not yet "reworked" for publishing as such. So it will need to be tweaked and re-tweaked before it would be listed. Since I doubt there is any money to be made on this (being a new writer and all) I figure you guys might as well enjoy the ride! Feel free to jump in and make comments, suggestions on characters, plot or direction. I have actually got most of that pretty laid out and you will have to wait with baited breath (actually nearly 60% of this book is written but I am going to release it in stages so you can digest it slowly!!) and then we will have a grand finale and see what happens! I'm pretty excited with the final part.
So.... just to get you into it here's the story:
