Wild Ride

I feel as though I have been on a wild ride today. It rained all day. I did not even step outside of the door. The day seemed to have pass quickly. I am having some problems posting now. I do not know what the problem could be. Maybe there is a problem with the blogger service at this time. I will have to stop posting now, because I am getting a little bit aggravated.

Writing

There is a lot that can be said on the subject of writing. Some people write just for the pleasure of writing. Some people write to get past a hurtful event. It has been widely known that writing can act like a healing process. It can be a healing process if one is truly open with his/her writing. When a person can honestly express his inner feelings, he will be able to heal. With healing comes the ability to move forward in life. The art of writing works miracles. We all should write in order to discover all those wonderful adventures waiting to be discovered.

Not

I started not to make this post today because I am extremely tired. I really do not have any special plans for ? I cannot believe what just happened. I was writing, then all of a sudden the words disappeared from this post. I do not know if something is wrong with my computer or my internet service. I had a long post but it simply vanished. I have lost my trend of thought so I guess I will sign off now.

Relaxing

I will be spending time relaxing this weekend. I am very tired and I need time to regroup. I also need to cancel my subscription with America Online. They are the worst Internet Service Provider I ever encountered. I believe the only thing America Online is concerned with is getting new customers. Their technical support is also lousy. Have any of you ever had America Online as your Internet Service Provider? If not. do not subscribe with America Online. I spend a great deal of time trying to reconnect with America Online. I think their service has destroyed my computer. I am concerned with those of you who have my email address. I will be changing services this weekend in order to be able to get things done.

Reading

I have been writing a great deal lately. I think I will start spending more time reading. Summer is approaching and it is time for me to get my wish list together. I have an account with Amazon.Com. I like their service. Shipping is great. What are your favorite novels? If any of you have any favorite novels, I would like you to share them with me.

Taking The Monkey Off My Back

Today I taking the monkey off my back. I have been carrying the weight of someone else. I have decided to release them. It feels good to say I don't need you. Do not think that you are so important that I need you. That is how I felt when I released the monkey off my back. I am at total piece now.

Another Day, Another Dollar

Another day, another dollar is the first thought that just came to mind. I am starting to write down my first thoughts in order to determine if they hold some specific meaning. Perhaps they hold the answers to my destiny. Perhaps they hold the answer to my faults. I need to find out. I am a little apprehensive today. I feel anxious and over stressed. Sometimes I feel as though there is not enough time in the day to accomplish all that I would like to accomplish. I am trying to start my life in a different direction because I do not like the choices I have made in the past. Sometimes I feel as though those bad choices will follow me the rest of my life. I do believe, however, that everyone should be given a chance to start their life over. If I can only get over my past bad choices, I know I would be able to make better choices in the future.

Exhaling

I spent some time exhaling today. I feel great. I did a little writing and I was able to watch a little TV. Well, I will make this a short post. I will write more tomorrow.

Catching Up

I have set a deadline for myself and it looks as though I will meet it. I need to stop being distracted by the little things. Sometimes an idea hit me and I just have to run with it. I feel as though I have been living on super pilot. Too much to do and not much time to do it; I know this is strenous. I seem to have been living under stress lately. I need to slow down but I feel my battery is so charged up, I cannot stop to take a break. I have been taking a break for a long time in the past. I guess you would say that I am trying to make up for lost time. I will go now. Have a nice evening.

It Is A Strange Feeling

It is a strange feeling when others are watching what you are writing and trying to discover whether your writing is fit for publication. We as writers should remember that those opinions are just opinions. Those opinions may be the opinions of one or and entire group who believe they have the power to predict the type of writing style and subject matter the general public prefer. What an amazing gift they must have. Well, folks, I write for my pleasure. I have a stronge base of followers that seem to be please with my writing. To those of you predictors out there, spend your time predicting the ails of the world. Maybe you can come up with a solution to the world's most complicated problems.

Breathing A Sigh Of Relief

Today I am just sitting back. I am breathing a sigh of relief. I have been feeling very tense lately. I cleaned up a little bit today. That may sound strange to you, but I have been quite a sloob lately. I had junk mail piled up. I finally got rid of it. If you only knew the big difference it made in my bedroom. I have allowed my bedroom to become unorganized. I now realize that it is causing me to not sit down and write my novel. I am planning on doing more this weekend. Wish me luck and have a nice day.

Free Time

Most people will have a little free time this summer. If anybody is considering writing a novel, the summer months are a great time to get started. Your favorite television programs will be on hiatus this summer. As a result, there is no excuse to not write. The children will be out of school, enjoying their favorite activities. You will not have to make sure that they get off to school. Of course you are expected to monitor their daily activities, but you still will have that precious time to write. If you have been putting off that novel in you, why not get started this summer.

Sitting Here Thinking

I am sitting here thinking about the horrible news I heard on the television today. Here in Louisiana, a minister and a sheriff deputy was accused of having sex with children and animals. This news has left me ill. Excuse me today, I cannot write because I cannot believe what I just heard.

Should I Go In That Direction?

Today I kept asking myself, should I go in that direction? I have to let go and realize that I do not control anything. I believe if I truly gave up control and went with the flow, I would be able to improve my writing. I know in my mind that I need to give up control but my actions are totally different. This is something I will keep on practicing. Today I will do something daring. I will break out of that safe cocoon I have wrapped myself around. I will be bold and take that chance. I wish I could do something like being on the show "Survivor" just to see exactly what I am made of. In fact I really do not have to be on such a show to show my physical strength and endurance. I will keep on trying. If I fail, I fail. But what is really failure? Failure is not trying at all. If I keep trying, then I really haven't failed.

One Deep Breath

I took one deep breath and I said to myself, wow I am feeling good right now. I am back at writing. At this point, my confidence is real high. I believe deep down inside that my writing skills are improving. I also believe that I will be able to get my writings published. At the beginning, I was using this writing space as my own little personal forums to talk about frivolous things and important things. It made me realize how important my writing is to me. For the first time in my life I feel I have found my niche. My true voice. This makes me feel good. I hope my writings could bring something to the public at large. If I could write about something that could change just one person's life, then my writing will not be in vain.

Buy This Novel

Are my words persuasive? Can I get others to follow my lead with the words "buy this novel"? We know others have done this and was very successful at it. Do I have that power in me? I am not sure but I am willing to take the risk. I am willing to expose myself to the world and tell them how I feel and what I want. I have defined what I want. What I want is for the general public to "buy this novel". I have my own forum now and I will speak my true feelings. Why shouldn't I be honest with my true motivations for blogging. My true motivations for blogging is to get the general public to buy this novel.

I Will Spend Time Talking About Reading Novels

I decide that I will spend time on reading novels. I believe more people should read novels. Reading novels is an important aspect of personal growth. It can change people's lives for the better. If I spend more time talking about reading novels, maybe I can sway more people to read. When Oprah had her book club, more people started reading. As soon as her book club ended, there appears to be a decline in novel readership. I would like to encourage people to read more books and novels. Oprah should not be the one to cause people to stop reading. There are a lot of new authors out there who have wonderful novels. It is unfortunate of course that they have not been able to get exposure for their books. Those authors whose books were profiled by Oprah had an advantage. These new authors, however, are not so lucky. They need a voice. They need someone to hear them. They are not the ones you will see on The New York Times Book Review. That does not mean that their work is not high quality. Give them a chance. If you do you will also be giving yourself a chance to explore a broader world of new novels.

Hooked on surfing for credits

I have become so hooked on surfing for credits that I cannot get back to my writing. One day I sat down to write a book. I was on a roll with it too. I was so happy that finally I found something I was so passionate about. I wanted to share the story with the world. Then one day I decided to surf the net in order to find out how to promote a book. I started reading and reading the material until I ran across someone else's blog about how they were blogging their book. I then became so interested in what they had to say that I got sidetracked. I looked into what blogging was all about. After all of these years of surfing the internet, I have never heard of a blog. Then I discovered that there were millions of people who had blogs. I decided to get a blog and I have been blogging ever since. From sitting down with the sole purpose in mind of writing a book to next becoming hooked on blogging. I have to get back to writing my book. I want to be an accomplished author like Faye Brown.

Now I Write

I write to heal. I write for pleasure. The clouds are bright today. The fan is rowing and now I write. The bridge is a scary place. Crime is on the rise and now I write. Poverty surrounds us all. People laugh great and small and now I write. I write because I write. I write because it is my freedom, my voice, my way, and nobody can take that away. I write and now I write. What will Faye Brown say? Will she think I write because I am a great writer? I do not know if I write as good as Faye Brown, but I write and now I write.

Some Authors Are So Lucky

Some authors are so lucky. They can write a novel, find a literary agent, and have their novel become an overnight success. Next you see them appearing on all of the various television programs promoting their book. These lucky authors are then listed on The New York Times best sellers list. Some of these authors are just not lucky. Their name is what is responsible for their novel's success. Bill Lee, who nobody knows will likely not show up on The New York Times review. Bill Clinton, who everybody knows will show up on The New York Times review. One Bill last name is Lee. The other Bill's last name is Clinton. Will you be able to tell who wrote the most interesting novel or will you just allow the last name to fool you? Do not follow The New York Times. It is time to stand up and think for yourself.

New Books and New Novels

I was writing today but I had to stop in order to read my new books and new novels. My son said that one of the books I ordered, from Amazon Bookstore, was already in the closet. I know that Amazon has a liberal return policy, but I do not see the book in my closet. I will keep the new books and new novels. I hope I get to read all of them. I need to get back to my writing. Writing for pleasure relaxes me.

The American Idol

The American Idol is a popular TV show. Although I started writing for pleasure, I cannot help but wonder what it would feel like to have written something that would become so popular. I do not know if that would ever happen to me. I think I might right a play. I just want to see if I could do it. Writing for pleasure relaxes me. I was a little behind on my writing today. I hope I can catch up tomorrow.

Pat O'Brien

Does Pat O'Brien write for pleasure? We really do not know. We do know, however, that Pat O'Brien lives for pleasure. Apparently calling up a coworker, in a drunkard stupor, is his idea of pleasure. Whether he writes for pleasure or not will probably be told later by The New York Times. I do write for pleasure. My writings will never be told because The New York Times would consider writings from an unknown not worthy of discussion. Pat O'Brien, of The Insider, can tell his story to The New York Times. Go on Pat. Let The New York Times turn you into a best seller.

The Runaway Bride

The runaway bride did not choose to write for pleasure. Writing for pleasure would have relieved the runaway bride's stress. The runaway bride would have been able to express her feelings to her family and friends if she had chosen to write for pleasure. The runaway bride will now have to face the repurcussions from her actions. If I was the runaway bride, I would start writing my feelings down in order to deal with them.

The Desperate Housewife

The Desperate Housewife writes for pleasure. She can tell her story every Sunday night. She knows she has a large audience and she takes every opportunity to strut her stuff. The desperate housewife is a women on the move. She is multi-talented. She can write and read at the same time. Wow, wouldn't it be nice to be a desperate housewife. You would receive a lot of attention if you were a desperate housewife. Look at Laura Bush. She is a desperate housewife. She received a lot of attention when she announced to the world that she was a desperate housewife. Wow, wouldn't it be nice to have a husband like President George Bush. You would receive a lot of attention if you had a husband like President George Bush. President George Bush receives a lot of attention because he is married to Laura Bush. I could become a published author if I became a desperate housewife. I will join Laura Bush at Chippendale so she can share her secrets on becoming a desperate housewife.

Trudging New Grounds

Yes it is fine to write simply for the pleasure of writing, but I very much so want to write my own novel. I have started writing it, but I took a long break from it. I hope I can get back to it. I feel I am caught up in some sort of double life. When I first started to write my manuscript, I was so excited about it. Later my writing interest was focused elsewhere. I will try to make a conscious effort to get back to it today.

I Am Happy For Her

I sit hear and write. I really love what I have been doing. I like to write and I do not really have a problem with writing without getting paid. I know it will pay off one day. I just have to be patient. Patience, however is not one of my strong points. It is something I struggle with everyday. I will try to get better. I couldn't, however, feel a little envious when I turned on the radio to hear Faye being interviewed. Wow she has come a long way. Maybe I will get there too. Her new novel, Strange Fruit In A Small Town will probably be a big success. I wish her all the luck.
