Update - Damaged Goods

For the last week I have been trying to get this story to flow as well as I want. First draft of the first four chapters didn't read well. I prayed about it. I believe in praying each time I write. I found I wasn't writing the story true to me. I began re-writing it again. I did this for several times. Now I'm on Chapter Three and it's flowing like nothing. I love the way the story is going. I also believe God is giving me a helping hand on this story. It's flowing well and I have never written this well in such a long time. Maybe since last NaNoWriMo.

New Story - Damaged Goods

For the past month or so, I've been unable to write anything that resembled good writing. I prayed hard each day, but everything I tried to write turned out to be gibberish. I tried forcing myself to write and to create a good story. But nothing was working out. I thought I would never be able to write a story again. I wrote one novel last November with NaNoWriMo. I did it. That story flowed with ease and I wrote it so easily. I now took a break of about 30 to 35 days. I wrote nothing, no poems, no stories and I couldn't even write blog entries. I went cold turkey to speak.

Now after 30+ days without writing, I wrote over 4,000 words in just a couple of hours. I then thanked God for allowing me to write. It just flowed with ease, just with my November story from last year. I then told a friend who giggled and thought I was silly. I also told my partner and they were all for me and said well done. It was nice to know that they supported me in my writing. They are always supporting me in whatever I do with writing, studying and so forth. I also have online friends that support me. I will dedicate my first novel to my partner and my best friend in Massachusetts.
