To be Writing . . .

My life seems so depressing now. I miss writing so much, which is to be expected. Specifically, it feels like my heart is being ripped from my chest. I only hope I can get back on the horse when it gets back . . . I know it will return. I only wish it will be soon. 😦

Lost Works

Unfortunately, there still has not been any luck extracting the data on my dying laptop. I refuse to give up. I know that it is my fault that I am in this predicament. If only I had been able to back up every file before Windows refused to open. Currently, the last three-fourths of Nicole 6 – and all of Cursed Brothers II: Keeper so far – are in Limbo. You can call it denial all you want, but I know I will get them back. I cannot see the other possibility, nor do I wish to. Wish me luck.

My 20th Birthday!

It seems so crazy to think that I will no longer be a teenager. I guess I had always thought that I would be a kid. When I am in my twenties, I will probably think the same thing and it will happen all over again when I reach thirty. I was born twenty years ago in Dahn, Germany at 11:03 on the morning of January 16th. So far, I am happy with what I have done with my life. I have written eight manuscripts, and published four. I love doing what I believe I do best: writing. The idea that I can come up with my own world and characters, with their own – mostly complicated – situations and villains is an incredible one. Most people would describe me as being ‘too imaginative’ or ‘shut away in my own magical land’. The truth is, they are right. I know that being realistic is important at times, but I pity those who are unable to lose themselves in fantasy or adventure. Call me crazy all you like, but this is me. There is nothing that I would change. I am looking forward to many more years of being ‘too imaginative’ and, honestly, I do not think there is such a thing. Well, only ten more hours of being a ‘teen’. Happy Birthday. 🙂

Stand-by . . .

I am still unable to open windows on my laptop, but I am getting it looked at. Hopefully, I can start writing again soon. I have been having really crazy dreams lately and might put some of them into book form one day. I think it is because I have not been able to write. We will see.

I have been lucky the past seven years when it comes to not losing my work. Unfortunately, my luck may be running out. My laptop refuses to turn on and I do not have everything backed up on my flash drive. Hopefully, everything will work out. I will just have to wait. I miss writing and seeing my other works. Wish me luck, and Happy New Year!

Keep Moving Forward

Well, I did promise that it would not be another month before posting an update. Instead, it has been four. I am not trying to make excuses about why Cursed Brothers II: Keeper has not been published yet. This entry is meant to enlighten any who might be interested in the past several months. As you already know, I have a goal to write each of my manuscripts in one year. Cursed Brothers II: Keeper is not yet finished. My first desire was to have the publish date in the middle of October. It changed to November, but now I think it would be best to just publish in the right time. I will continue to write, but am not going to set an impossible deadline that will make me disappointed and doubt myself. Since I wrote last, we have had to move once more. The owners of the house we (my parents) were renting decided to move back in and gave us one month to move out. My sister and brother-in-law had room, so we are staying with them now. There are so many other things that I can place ‘blame’ on, but I just need some time to brainstorm more and write a good book late – rather than a bad book fast. By this time next year, however, I hope to have Cursed Brothers II: Keeper and Nicole Sastasha and the City of Aqua Utopia published. Also, Nicole 7 will be written – possibly Nicole 8 and the final part of the Cursed Brothers Trilogy. Happy Holidays,

Confirmation

I cannot believe how busy this summer was . . . and still is. Of course, that is no excuse for keeping to myself. Cursed Brothers II: Keeper is coming along nicely – and will be published by mid-October -, but I will not lie: it has not been very stress-free lately. It is hard to keep personal life out of my particular career. Well, life goes on. I promise it will not be another month before my next post. 😉
