“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it."

I'm grateful to be able to see beautiful sights that make me so thankful to be alive. 
I'm grateful for the ones that make life worth living. 

I'm grateful to have the ability to express myself through words.

Have a wonderful weekend. 

And happy writing!

"Just Keep Swimming!"

I've decided I'm taking a note from Dory: "Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming."

I've gone through all sorts of thoughts today as I've officially started NaNoWriMo.

I went from:

  • Somewhat having an idea
  • To not liking it
  • Free-writing more ideas
  • Going to generators to gain ideas
  • To having the generator send me back to my previous idea
  • To using my idea but with a "twist."
  • To writing away
  • To hitting my goal mark!!
  • To getting bored with the idea
  • To realizing I want to change it further
  • To writing way more than I thought I would today
A whomping: 3,708 words and four chapters. ***

That's huge in my writing goal! 

What a day, huh? 

Maybe Daylight Saving is my best friend. Or the fact that it's Sunday aka "Lazy day." I better write while I'm excited and ahead, because I have a long busy week ahead!

Overall, I'm excited about this idea. It's a mixture of so many things that interest me and have made an appearance at one point of my life. It's a tad bit darker than I usually write, but it isn't too scary. Mind you, I'm writing for Middle Grade children (I hope it'll stay that way throughout the book). 

At this point, I'm letting my mind drive the wheel and my fingers are on autopilot. 
I don't want to think about the "result," just the "process." 

But I will say at this point, the book is called: "Unfinished."
