    Stalled out

    Since I don’t have an interview this week due to unseen events, I thought I would share a little bit about my writing – or well lack of writing… I’ve stalled out this past week. I dunno why… It might deal with the fact that one of the main antagonist characters decided to ‘flip sides’ and really interested in Sam (my main character) more like a lover.  So this now means that that I have to do a lot of edits dealing with this character.  And it’s a fundamental charge that I am going to really tweak the plot line (nothing major but still a good chuck of the sub…

But I’ve tried this before… I was able to get some stuff done. Today I am just drawing up blanks… My blog has been going so well this month and I am scared that it might not last… But I have felt like this before and it hasn’t brother much… Today I am drawing…

By now, you are wondering, which one did you pick?  I choose Google+. Why?  Because, I wanna! Okay, but really there are a few great reasons to use Google+. Space isn’t temporary or limited to 140…
