I posted this in November Balancing Romance and Writing . . .
Summary: I had a guy who I wanted to be my boyfriend for about six weeks, but we are in two different places in our lives. However we agreed to be just friends, and I am glad to have him in my life ( minus the his complaining.)
Most people ( minus my supporting mom and brother) say I write too much, but my friend said it was okay for me to write.
I tried to write while he worked, so when he was home, I could spend time with him. I was trying to give my undivided attention to him as I learned in the past that I annoyed others being stuck in my own world.
The thing is that the longer I stay away from my writing, the less of myself, I feel. . .
I know who I am. . .
- I am a writer and storyteller!
- I am brutually honest and yet vividly creative.
- I can not leave the house for days at a time with my head in a tablet or computer screen.
- I love lists and have scheduled my life around my writing.
- I’m a creative mess, but I am a damn good, semi-organized researcher.
- I need someone who encourages me.
I do not need . . .
- Someone who wants kids. ( I prefer my four pawed babies, cats.)
- Someone complaining that we had another slow-cooker dinner, (please be grateful I am a damn creative and good cook.)
- Someone who doesn’t want to be immortalized in my written work, (because a high chance he will inspire a character or two or ten.)
- Someone who says I write too much.
- Someone who says I am too messy.
- Someone who says I am too moody ( when it comes to writing, I’m not cranky, I’m passionate.)
I’m not a family originated female. I’m fine with that. I’m fun, positive, talkative, and perky. I’m auntie Becky and I’m fine with that.
I just need someone who understands. . . I’m a writer. I will not change myself for anyone!
If a guy cannot handle that then he needs to find someone else.
If I was in a cafe with my current characters this what they and I would order. . .
Me (author Rebekah): iced mocha or hot orange green tea
My muses order is on this blog my muses coffee order
Lucy: hot mocha with orange juice
Valin: coffee with caramel creamers and orange juice
Lyric: coffee black, water
Paige: coffee with cream and two sugars
Vincent: just orange juice (adds a shot of vodka)
Verona: latte with steamed cream and caramel with bubbly water
Autumn: iced caramel latte or green tea
I was stood up Saturday instead of just waiting for two hours, I outlined part 2 for my book. (Yes, making the best of my anxiety, time, and my Nanowrimo prep.)
So I waited hours for the bozo to not show, and I was frazzled. What made it worst was when I gave him a chance after he begged for it, and I told him it would NOT work with the distance. Then after two hours of waiting, saying he was going to be there, he texts me saying: it‘s not working for me.
So what do my muses do? They nag me to write about it, and put it my novel I am working on. 3350 words later I have a scene to add into my story. I know it’s before nanowrimo but I wanted to write while all feelings were fresh in my head. The migraine was worth the Saturday night of writing.
Thank you . . . Muses (in no particular order )
These are the main character to both my books:
The Whispering Path
The Broken Path.
Lucy is the main character. . . Yes, story involves around her. She has a gift and curse. . . She is a ghost whisperer. She can communicate with the dead and sometimes they are nicer and more grateful than the living. She is trying to find her place in this world, but things always seem to get complicated.
Valin is her complicated half boyfriend, half friend, but full drama king. He always seems to find trouble, even when not looking. At first, he liked how she allowed him to be himself, but his obsession such as ghost hunting and dealing with different spiritualities, change him. (He is drawn more to his own dark side. He has used Lucy’s gift to get attention.)
Lyric is her crush and first half boyfriend. He is there more when it’s convenient for him. He knows she is crazy about him, and uses it to his advantage. He; however, trusts Lucy more anyone. They have a bound with the paranormal after his first girlfriend Daisy died while he and she were in high school. He is the very moody artist type who puts alot of his feelings in his art, drugs, alcohol, and sex.
Paige is Daisy cousin who looks similar to Daisy and pulls in Lyrics interest, but then he gets flustered when she doesn’t act like her cousin. He feels if he leaves her, he will leave Daisy. She knows he is in love with Daisy and since she had a crush on him when she was younger, she uses her cousins similar looks to her advantage. They stray apart, but stay together for their kids.
Verona is wife to Vincent. They were together since high school, and neither one seen themselves with anyone else. Verona dated Valin first, but then meet his friend Vincent and the rest was history. She gets off having sex in public.
Vincent was madly in love with Verona at first sight of her thigh high black boots and gothic look. He loves the fact that she is into everything he is drinking, weed, ghost hunting, watching sports drunk, parties, and lots of sex. Vincent and Verona are always in Valin house and store more than their own.
Autumn Lucy’s ex best friend high school. She put drama, gossip, and boys over her best friend. They parted and Autu,n got pregnant her senior year. They have not looked at things the same afterwards.
Why I say half boyfriend’s? I feel that the relationships she has with both Lyric and Valin are not complete. Valin is more complete than she is with Lyric, but secretly she wants Lyric more.

Sports I like basketball, baseball, volleyball, football (American) etc
Sports I like to play volleyball.
I love to exercise my brain. When writing a novel, I do it alot. I do word sprints.
(Word sprint is writing as many words as you can in a time limit, 10 minutes, 20 minutes even up to an hour.) In groups, at the end they write down the amount of words, and cheer each other on. There are NaNoWriMo groups, twitter sprint groups, and Facebook groups.
I have a word sprint ritual.
When I do sprints on my own. (I get a bag of day old Halloween candy.)
:00 to :25 word sprint
:25 to :30 break: eat candy, write notes, bathroom if need
:30 to :55 word sprint
:55 to :00 break: eat candy, write notes, bathroom if need
I usually do this for 2 to 4 hours or when I reach my daily goals. It depends on scenes, what errands I have to do for that day. I love written exercising. I trying to out do my best rewards.
20 minute sprint: 673
25 minute sprint: 698
30 minute sprint: 821
60 minute sprint: 1129
Shortest time to reach 1000 words was 45 minutes, when we did a reverse sprint. You give a word limit and you write until you reach the limit. (Nanowrimo daily goal 1667 per day.)
Written kitten.com is fun every hundred words a picture of a cat comes up. They have a puppy one as well.
I don’t like it but there is writeordie.com(but if you can’t keep up it will start to erase work.)
