I’m a Terrible Writer

Dylan Jourey ran his hands through his dark brown hair in frustration. He couldn’t believe that his daughter had done that. He couldn’t believe that she had burst into Skye Parker’s shelter, her place of business, and just made that accusation. He hadn’t even realized that the town they had moved to was one that actually had a Parker in residence. He figured that was what he got for not looking into the proprietors of businesses.

But when he had heard about this town, he had to bring his daughter. He was tired of always having to hide who and what they were, everywhere that they had moved. It wasn’t that he wasn’t proud that he was a werewolf and that he was raising a “werewolf pup”, especially as a single father, but most of the world didn’t even realize that they were actually real, that they actually existed. That was the problem, the singular problem. If they really knew, they would be hunted down and eliminated. That’s why he moved to Needmore, Colorado.

Yuck! That’s what I wrote. This is why I have a love-hate relationship with NaNoWriMo. I write terribly when I’m forced to write. When I let the words just flow, I can get some amazing shit done.

Right now, it’s not happening. Right now, I’m just trying to get caught back up!

Even my SEO plugin is telling me my writing is bad :O

Oh well, time to just keep going! See you on the flip side!

NaNoWriMo 2018: Day 01

Today is Day 01 of Writing Daily.

Ugh! I requested today off so that I could get ALL the writing done.

Instead it’s almost noon and I have 38 words typed. I have more words put into this blog post than I do with my novel. Not a great start to #NaNoWriMo 2018, right?

FOCUS : Word of the Year 2018

The time of year is upon me when I need to choose my “word of the year“. I’ve been doing it for a few years, and the one year it worked well for me was when I chose “happy”. I almost went with it again for 2018, but instead I chose “FOCUS“.

I’m excited for this year!

My main direction for “FOCUS” will be the second definition. directed attention. I think it’s going to be a good year. I’m ready for something big and new to happen. I know that I am going to have to make it happen, but I am ready to FOCUS on me, on life, on all the things!

Goals for 2018:


  • Focus and finish a fitness program
  • Drink me some Shakeology
  • Get back to the Gym


  • Make memories
  • Share love
  • Be present


  • Write the novel I originally started planning for November
  • Win NaNoWriMo 2018

Have you chosen a word? How are you going to use it to help you set your goals for 2018?

31 Days: NaNoWriMo [Capture Your Information]


This year, I’m not sure how I’m going to do it. I have a few ideas.

As I’ve said, I’m not sure exactly how I’m going to be doing all of this.

Right now, I just want my freaking space bar to work the right way!

Life is a Rollercoaster

Today I’ve felt like I was on a rollercoaster. Maybe it was because of how I slept, but I swear that my emotions were up and down and everywhere all day long. It was nuts.

The best part of it though is that I am home, with “Ziva the ‘Shiba”, aka the new laptop. She’s just a dream to play with. She’s so quiet. She’s lighter than I expected and a lot wider, but I’m loving it.

Learning Windows 8 is definitely an uphill battle, but I’ll conquer it. I wish my WinPhone apps worked on this. Then I wouldn’t have to repurchase. I need a suggestion for a Word-like application. I know about Open Office, but I had issues with it working on two other computers, so I’m leery of using it.

Okay I think I’m done blathering on with this. This keyboard definitely takes some getting used to, that’s for dang sure, 😆
