JINXED - First Draft - DONE!!!!

 

Feeling pretty accomplished right now.

I have finally completed the first draft to the Jinxed manuscript. This has been a long time in the making because I wrote the screenplay in 2006. So much has changed since that time in regards to technology. I had a lot to update. But I made it through.

I wanted to get to at least 50k words. I only clocked in at 47,151. I hoping through the rewrite and revision process I will make up for the shortfall. But the main thing is that the first draft is done, done, done!

Imma say it again friends, IT’S DONE!!!!!

Life Isn't Easy

Yesterday I wrote a blog about how writing isn’t easy.  Today, I’m writing about how life isn’t easy. 😩 

There are things we want to happen in our lives.  It is innate for us as people to want to succeed.  It’s also for us as people to not feel good when others achieve the success we want for ourselves.  Not to the point of jealousy or being envious, but thinking how we can never get ahead.  We ask ourselves, “Why can’t I get ahead?” 😔 It’s almost like we’re feeling jinxed.  The crazy part is someone out there thinking the same thing about us. 🤦🏽‍♀️

I totally understand.  I get it.  I feel it.  I feel it for myself.  I feel it for my daughters.  I feel it for my mom.  I feel it when someone I love feels they aren’t succeeding despite the fact they are successful.  It ways heavily.

At the moment, I’m feeling some kind of way for my daughter.  She’s 16 almost 17 and she’s learning life’s lessons.  How things don’t always go your way despite the fact you’ve put everything into your favor to make it happen. UGH!  I feel her pain.  Just when you think everything is lost is the time you have to push through the most.  Hard to explain that to a teenager with her entire life ahead of her.  🥺

Even with myself.  I’m so ready to make a change in my life when it comes to my job.  I’m burnt out.  I want to do something different.  I want to meet different people and go on adventures.  I live for after hours and the weekends.  Life shouldn’t be like that.  Living for the moments away from the job.  This is why I tell my kids  chase the dreams, do the dream, don’t get stuck at a job because you’re looking for money.  Money is a thing of now and if you step on the path of servitude (unlikable job and bills)  that’s where you’ll be for a long while until you can figure out how to get off. 🤯

I’m feeling a little melancholy.  Hopefully this feeling will pass quickly. 

Today my word is JOY!  Smile. 🥰

Merry Christmas Eve

Think, I'm finally in the holiday spirit.  🤔 It only took for me to wake up this morning and say yay, it's Christmas Eve. 😂 🤶🏽🎅🏽🎄

I'm excited about my published books and the ones yet to be written. Now if I can manage my time better between all the things I have going on outside of writing that would be great! 😩 Wishful thinking perhaps.... 🙄 I'm working my mind map mojo. 😜

It's raining this morning. Too bad for all the people who didn't finish their shopping. Today is going to be a great day! Going to watch my peeps bowl this morning! 🎳 Fun times.

Let It Burn

Is done!!!!!! 🌟 

Three years and down to the wire.  

I'm so happy I was able to get this book done before the holidays. I didn't want to go into 2017 with this book unpublished. 

I made my deadline with time to spare! What a feeling!
