I've been slacking lately. I can't even remember the last time I really sat down and wrote anything. I'm not sure what's going on with me. Maybe it's my lack of energy or my fear of failing.
I've sent out my book out to a few other literary agents and have received nothing back. I'm not sure if that's a good thing, but I like to think it is.
Since the last post, not too much has happened. My days are filled with my daughter, reading, an occasional hour of writing, and playing sims. Sometimes I fell like I'm a forty year old woman with no friends who sits around with nothing to do. Most of that is correct besides my age of course.
I'm so far away from my friends and family that it starts to feel like I don't have any.
She spend two days with us and it reminded me that I need to get closer friends. When she drove off I almost ran after her car. Her leaving on let reality sit in. My life as an almost writer is far from eventful.
A few weeks later, John, Savannah, and I took a trip to visit our family in friends in northern Indiana. I got to see my Momma Rhoe whom I absolutely adore. Our personalities are so similar that it's hard to believe we aren't actually related.
It was good seeing my actually family too. My mom had no idea I was coming and was surprised to see me. We ended up stay two days longer because I begged John. Sometimes I feel like I'm not really part of their family. So I was shocked when I actually got there and didn't want to leave.
In writing news, I have started a new book called Barely.
It's about a girl named Emma Tate who is from Tennessee but moves to New York City after her high school graduation because she can't stand her mom. She was ready to stretch her legs and have her own life. Before she knows it, it's seven years later. When her baby sister is dying of a brain tumor, she heads back to her hometown to spend the last months with her sister. It's still a work in process, but I enjoy writing it.
I'm not sure why I write about loss and depression all the time. I guess people say write what you know.
I will try my hardest to keep my blog up to date.
