Diamond in the clique rough

I have a naughty muse (Starred is my erotic muse,) and lately she has wanted to come out in my paranormal and horror writing. 

So if I feel the scene is going naughty I will write the scene twice. I write erotica faster than my therapy writing lately. So I have both scenes. It helps for word counts in nanowrimo and keeps me busy. 

I found a section in one of my naughty scenes. . . (The scene is between Lucy and Lyric fooling around when they are both taken.) I know this line sounds generic and clique but it sounded good to me. 

“She needed him–she knew he needed her. She wanted him and didn’t want to give him back. She secretly and denabliy believed that if she gave him everything he wanted, that he would feel the same way for her. ”

I felt like my paranormal writing is slowly turning into a clique romance writing. What kills me is that the guy is not the same in reality that is in her head. (But the be honest, is it ever?) She wants love, but he knows she will do anything (including naughty stuff) to keep the idea of him. He uses this to his intimate and sexual advantage. 

I should add a ghost to the scene, but then I start to wonder if I add too much paranormal does it build or cut storyline?

I probably should add something to make more showing and less telling

My brain never stops and my muses are always evolving.

Challenging month. . . November 

My first book, The Whispering Path, was therapy, and even now, I need to do a serious rewrite to make it truly professional. 

I’m writing the sequel, The Broken Path, based on the second part of my life. It is going to be a month of therapy. . . Facing my depression, anxiety, and my ptsd. Hence the title The Broken Path

I just hope I am strong enough to face the challenge

All situations can be written. . .

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

No crap!

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 )

Word sprint, the exercise I like. 

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.)

 

The Writing Rush

The writing rush is the fact that you have so much of a novel or story ready in your head or outlined, but you are afraid to overwrite and burn out. (Most I’ve written in a day is 21,000 words. But I was down for two days later.)

I love when I write and then even when I put it down I want to get back to it. While I cook or clean, I think about when can I get the next chance to write again. It makes me excited the awake up the next day. 

I will write so much and walk away leaving myself desiring more. I hate ending, because I lose that clingy feeling. It’s like a writing drug. . . My muses are excited, I’m excited. . .  The only thing is if I leave a part in my head unwritten, my anxiety gets scared that I forgot about it. So I have written notes, mini outlines, and post it’s for the next day. 

I have 15 days until November 1st I’m very excited. 

Setting up for Nanowrimo yay!

Last year I did not get to finish my Nanowrimo do to some mental issues I was having. (I was living with people who didn’t believe in my writing career and said I wrote too much. They didn’t understand me and it killed my self esteem. I was a shell of a person, and I was running in a robotic mode. Now I’m finally feeling like my writing self.)

So this year I am doing two projects since right now all I have is time. 

Each giving both goal of 50,000 word by November 30, 2017. That means 100,000 words.

In order to reach such goals. I’m working on extreme set up. . . Detailed chapter outlines for one and detail and character specific outlines for the other. 

They are both parts of the same project. It’s a paranormal project of ghost whisperer. One part is all of the stories of the ghosts  she encounters and the other is of the drama of her life. 

I have two accounts https://nanowrimo.org/participants/rebekahwolveire is working on my word account for my ghost stories.

https://nanowrimo.org/participants/rebekah1213 is the account working on my storyline. The Broken Path.
