Will You Read This?

That’s exactly my point. Sometimes trying to be an author is the hardest thing I’ve ever done. You get just as much snooty flack as you do if you’re an actor. I know. I’ve been there, done that, got the t-shirt, hat, shoes, and butt that goes with it. 

Being an author (or trying to be) is the hardest sales pitch. Even if I didn’t want to get a publisher, I’ve got to do my own self-publishing and get people interested to. 

Question is, will you even read this post?

Introducing…

Food is definitely for thought. If you don’t eat, you can’t repair your body. If you don’t eat, you can’t think. If you don’t eat, you can starve. If you don’t eat, you can’t write. 

Today I’m preparing to introduce two new characters into my current project. One seems to be quite fun to write, but it is utterly complex. I’m hoping that today’s lunch of shrimp and tuna panini, salad, crab and tomato soup, with a cup of coffee will be enough fuel to write at least two pages.

I really need to introduce these characters. One plays a huge part in the story. 

My motto today is eat, stay healthy, and try to finish the chapter. That way you can really get into the super juicy parts.  

 

Travel Article the First Gig

I’m always fascinated by travel. I live in Japan, and I really want to write about my experiences here. I thought I’d start up a travel blog, but it is sometimes difficult to keep up with this one, in addition to all my other sites I need to post from. 

I then found a website that needed travel writers. I applied, got the job, then busted my computer. FAIL! Big set back for a then wannabe writer and author. 

Praise for the smart phone!!! I adjusted, downloaded Microsoft and missioned on. 

So it’s a little slower, but I just submitted my travel article. It’s my first one… ever. It’s also going to be my first “gig” as a paid writer I guess. All my other published projects were out of the kindness of my heart. 
Now it’s just to nail down that first paid for published book. 

Oh the dreams! When will they make a reality?

Sickness Sucks

Apologies for the lack of blog posts. I unfortunately have been quite under the weather. I have also been very busy seeing my significant other off on his business trip. That’s been a bit of an emotional upheaval. 

However, for the last few days I have been feeling a little better (despite a blood test today) and have managed to replot an entire book, and juggle a few chapters around a bit. 

I’ve also written some new first paragraphs for chapter one and I’m getting my testers to read and choose their favourite. 

I actually rewrote a chapter this week too! So a replot, chapter juggle, opening paragraphs, and a chapter rewrite in 5 days? Not bad I think. 

If I keep this pace up, I can type and getting it to proofing stage in less than a year. 

Princess Zoe’s Fairytale Song

I wish to tell you a magical story. 

Once upon a time, there was a magical princess named Zoe. Princess Zoe had a lot of talents. She was a fantastic actress, dancer and singer. 

One day Princess Zoe decided that she needed to put her talents to good use. So she did. She had watched her other princess friends very closely. It was then she was struck by a fantastic idea! She decided to use her magic and turn herself into her friends and attend birthday parties, too restore the hopes and dreams of all the children in the land!

Before each party, Princess Zoe would click her fingers, clap her hands, spin and wiggle her nose to transform into the Princess of the childs’ dreams! The smiles on their faces made it so happy. 

Then one day, her step-mother, the Evil Queen, who had always hated these parties, screamed that there would be no more parties. She sent Princess Zoe to the dungeon. 

The children cried and cried. What to do? Their beloved Princess Zoe locked away! There would be no more parties! 

Then one of the children had an amazing idea. They crept into the Evil Queens’ bedroom that night, stole the key, and ran quickly down to the dungeon. They unlocked the door, and saved Princess Zoe. 

Princess Zoe was so happy! She was even happier when the children told her they knew how to get rid of the Evil Queen. Out of a bag they pulled a video camera. They told Princess Zoe to sing with all her might as the other Princesses. So she did!

Shortly after, Princess Zoe and the children ran upstairs, and connected the video to the television in the Evil Queens room. 

The sound of Princess Zoes’ magical singing caused the Evil Queen to wake up and scream with rage. Her anger was so intense. She swelled and exploded in a puff of smoke. Princess Zoe and the children cheered!

The following morning, Princess Zoe uploaded the video to YouTube, so that her beautiful singing would be there for the world to enjoy! 

Princess Zoe and the land lived happily ever after.

The End

Zoe’s Fairytale Song

The Popular Choice, not the Latter. 

Writing is hard knock. I’m always getting into writers block…well on one book anyway. 

I overcame the hurdle though. I scraped it and started again… 4 times. Now I have something that will work. 

Now there’s a battle in my mind.  I’m the popular choice, not the latter. I’ll leave you to figure that out. Leave me an answer. 

 

Legs and Wheels, 6072 is…

Apologies all. There was no blog on Wednesday, due an email that Rei Link received. A statement was released today. 

It was announced that the publishing outlet for the upcoming book, ‘Legs and Wheels, 6072’, by Rei Link and S. Rowe, was closed down. Due to the unforeseen issue, the authors have decided to postpone the release of the book, until a new publisher can be found. They will announce the new release date ASAP. In the meantime, please enjoy small tasters of what’s to come in the book!
Apologies once again.
