Not sure

June 30, 2011

I’m kind of at a standstill in my writing. Just have some things to figure out. Thankfully, I am hardly out of ideas like I have been recently. I am going to work on figuring something out..

My problem is that I am writing about this huge court trial. The saying, “write what you know” is not something I even took into consideration when heartstorming this idea. And on most days I thoroughly enjoy working on this.

I haven’t even read many, if any, novels on trials. However, I’ve just started reading a novel that I think is going to help me.. Let’s hope that it does.

Much the way, I’m writing today because I’m not at all sure what my weekend holds. I wish it would be busy with friends, but I have no idea about that yet.. Tuesdays and Thursdays might be a better schedule for me anyway. We will see.

Doing better than last week, at least

June 28, 2011

Last week I thought my computer died. I thought I had lost everything. I have Mozy, so most my files were retrievable. My biggest worry was that I’d lost all my Kindle books that I’ve collected. I love having a “kindle” on my computer, and that I hear about many free Christian novels online.

To my major relief, I got my computer back the day after I got it to a friend. And more importantly, I lost absolutely nothing. I’m so grateful.

However, I got the computer back Wednesday night. And for the rest of the week had major problems thinking of anything to write. I mean, I started questioning whether or not I really wanted to write anyway. That would kind of be sad, since I have next to nothing published. However, taking a day completely off, as I do most Sundays, and looking at everything again yesterday has given my imagination the boost that it needed. I am thoroughly enjoying writing again.

On the other hand, there is nothing new on the center to report, and that’s frustrating to say the least. I really want to get this job. I think it would be great for me in a myriad of ways. Not the least of which is people say that authors need to experience life. And right now, I do not leave my house often. Besides, I truly enjoy working with the disabled.

Praying that somehow things will get busier with the center.

Not sure of much

June 23, 2011

My computer went down Tuesday. That’s why I haven’t written lately. Well, at least it’s part of the reason.. I’m struggling, and not sure what to do.

know I would really like to get this job at  independent living center. But right now it looks like I need to go on these government programs. I do not know if my parents will allow me to do that. I’m very frustrated about this. Don’t know what to do. Haven’t talked to parents about this yet.

My writing seems to go on and on in ovals. You may have noticed that in reading this. I need to do some pretty major research. Not sure how to start that really.

Doing some thinking

June 13, 2011

I do not know what this week holds for me.. As if I ever really do.. Anyway, I was visiting my friends who first told me about this independent living center. This is a family I’m pretty much part of. I spend any Sunday afternoon that I can with them. Their son is disabled, and is going through the training at center. He hasn’t heard anything from the people lately either. I find that strange, but also comforting atthe same time. At least I know that it isn’t just me, that they’re giving up on me because I’ve been gone so much. At least, I really hope that’s not what this silence is about.

And the family, even the son who should start working at the center, thinks that it would be awesome if I do get the executive director job. I think it would be awesome if I were to get that job too.

Struggling

June 11, 2011

I am not doing well lately. We’re going out of town once again this week. I loved my time with my family, but being gone so much has left me pretty distracted. I can’t seem to settle down and even do something like catch up on my e-mail. My writing was going really well before we started being gone more than we’re home. Now if I write half a page I consider myself fortunate.

The biggest thing I’m doing right now is reading novels. People say that you have to read in order to write well. I can get lost in novels with absolutely no problem. But reading don’t feel like work. Not at all.

I am not hearing from the independent living center. I think that’s a big part of why I’m so down lately. I want this job more than I’ve wanted anything else lately.. Working there, moving out, would be so very nice. Working there would give me more purpose, I believe.

I am at a place in my novel, the one that I am writing, that I need to do some research. Let me see if I can get anywhere on that.

Home again

June 8, 2011

We’re home. Sadly, I’m not sure how long we are going to stay home this time.

This vacation was was something I really enjoyed. I absolutely loved hanging out with my sisters. One of them was having a wedding, and the three of us got downright silly at times. I also got to see my favorite aunt and her children. Time with them is never enough.

But we are home now. We may go somewhere next week. I really hope not. I’m very ready to be home a while, a long while.

The latest news on the independent living center is that there is a position for an executive director. And from what I heard weeks ago, I may be eligible for that. I would love to get this! I really wish I could start tomorrow! This may be a full time job, which I don’t think I would mind at all. I do want some time to write, however surely I could figure something out. I’m ready to make some major changes in my life. Just wish they would start now.
