Wicked Wednesday – Writing

For years I wrote poems, from the time I was in middle school.  I then tried to write lyrics as well.  The older I got the more I wanted to write a book, but I didn’t know how to do it and what I needed to do to be able to get it published and out into the world.  When I finally wrote my first book a few years ago I ended up selling it as a ebook because I had no idea how to get it published otherwise without spending an obscene amount of money to do so.

I then was going through a really hard time in my life, when everything seemed to be changing and turning my world upside down.  I wanted a way to write it all down and maybe share it and get insight, as well as maybe come in contact with others that knew and understood what I was going through.  So I started my blog here on WordPress eight months ago.  March 24th to be exact.  I started by writing short stories and sharing some things I was going through.

Wanting to reach out to more people, I started participating in some of the weekly prompts.  Not only have I reached more people but I feel a part of a community now.  It’s hard to call myself a writer, even though I love writing and could pretty much write every day about something.  But when I get comments and responses from those I consider “real writers” and “experienced bloggers” I get all excited and gushy like a fan girl.  I feel so honored to have others like my stories and posts.  It makes me all giddy to see when others like my blog posts.

I honestly had no clue what I was doing when I started writing here.  I am not kidding. And still feel clueless! But I am having fun and enjoy being able to put down in writing the thoughts I have and the stories that come flowing out of my fingertips once I start and let my mind go.  I love the way it soothes me and centers me when nothing else will at times.

I know you’re not supposed to, but I can’t help comparing my work to others that I think are amazing writers.  I know I have my own style, as we all do, but it evolves as I continue to learn and try new things.  I love to see where I might go next.

I just hope others get something out of my writing and I can continue to do this for as long as I can. I thank each and every one of you reading this right now.  It means so much that you would take the time to read something I wrote.

  1. Oh Sweetheart your blog is one I love to read everyday. You have a way of writing that draws people in. I have had books published the ‘old-fashioned’ way and I have a book already on Amazon. It is not an erotic book at all. I am now considering writing a lifestyle book of the kinkiest kind. E-Books are the way to go right now as most people read them that way. Amazon have the widest audience.

    Self doubt plagues all writers and I guess the best way to overcome it is to publish excerpts from your book on here and have people comment on it. Just some small snatches.

    This site offers some great advice. Honestly though hun I feel your writing is wonderful. There are no hard and fast rules to writing as the best of the writers break the rules. The biggest tip I can pass on is see what is happening in your mind and then describe it. I find that works for things like removing clothes lol. Without the movie in your head you might leave the socks on the hero and everyone knows hero’s don ‘t have sex with their socks on.

    My best advice is go for it. Write what you know about or pick a subject that no ones knows about like fantasy. There actually is a formula for writing for both sexes. Women are more sensual and like to hear about touch, smells, emotions sensations, things like that. Men love the nitty gritty. You can describe some parts of the body like undersea wildlife and they want the graphics in your words. Anyway sweetheart sorry for the long winded comment, I hope you don’t mind. You are talented and it would be a great shame to not use it. Good Luck! ❤ ❤ ❤
