Hello

I hope you’re doing well today and I thank you for stopping by this humble blog. I’m new around here so bear with me as I try to figure out how to organize all the nonsense I’ve written so far. I know it seems like random posts. Well… they are. I just sort of rant what’s on my mind.  But it’s all in good fun and it’s all in a way, depicting my journey to becoming an author.  Thanks to all the fiction in my head, I kind of have a lot going on right now.  I’ve journals packed full of ideas and dreams that seem impossible but highly likely if I keep at it.  I don’t really know what I’m doing.  I hear you laughing.  (Cue clearing of throats from embarrassment.)

I finished my first novel recently and have been giving it the final once(11th) over for a couple of months now. I thought starting a blog would help me stay focused. It has, for the most part. For the other part, it has turned into something else. Stay on track Mel! As I said, I came here wanting to rant about my first novel, but I’m finding it too exhilarating and fear I may be getting carried away a bit. I feel like a kid in a candy store. I think besides writing novels, I want to be a blogger too. So please pardon my mess while I figure out how to make this blog better. It’ll take me a while though because I need to get this novel out first.

Update

If you followed from the start, my one follower, I changed the name of my novel from M.A.T.L. to Some Kind of Heaven. There are three novels so I thought it would be simpler to call it the M.A.T.L. series. Some Kind of Heaven, M.A.T.L. Book 1 and so on. Ta da! Anyway, that’s what I’ve decided. If your new here, I’m crazy and if you’re not, you know that already.

What you’ll find if you hang out here.

For now, random posts, rants of sorts. I’ll touch on anything having to do with my first novel. You might find some poetry sprinkled about. You might be surprised at the vampires (Olivia and Michael) that have somehow made it to my brain effortlessly (Freaking me out!). Mainly, however, I adore a good love story and that is what you may see a lot of. But honestly, my brain is full of so many plot lines, that you might find some touching dramas, crazy twisted adventures, thrillers that don’t make sense and sagas that are other worldly. Also, my children asked me a while back for a graphic novel. I already have the outline for a 15-book series. (Hmm… I can see you scratching your head. I know… I’m out of my mind!) And finally, I’m falling in love with flash fiction. It’s fun and challenging. You will get some of that for sure. As you can see, I’m just your typical psycho dreaming up a storm. But isn’t it fun!

Advice?

I don’t know that I can advise anyone really as I’m still so green in the blogging/writing garden. But, if I have something to say, I will donate with caution. Promise. On that note, if you made it this far, you might as well stick around and see what’s what. I thank you for stopping by. Please lock the door on your way out. I’m off to polish up my novel.

  1. I’m already hooked. I know I’m going to love everything you do, just from your home and about pages. (Also, I might need to punch up my about page, lol… it’s a little lacking, maybe.)

    I’m diving in. Wish me luck! haha

      1. I think it’s lovely. 🙂 Don’t worry about making long comments on all my posts or comments, or answering them all. I know everyone is busy and it can be a chore at times, and we need rest and we have real life to deal with! haha
        Good night, if you’re going to bed. 🙂

      1. If can stop my head long enough to stop spewing new stuff on my blog, it will get done!

        You’ve been out more than I it seems. I just recently came out sort of speak. I’m a long work in progress.

      2. How do you make time to respond to your audience. I’m perusing your blog and reading… and reading… You reply to everyone practically.

        I’m impressed and I’m picturing you multitasking your life away.

        😦

    1. Thanks for visiting. Peeked over at Seafoaming. Incredible. You’ve probably done more in you little life than I have in my big life. You seem very talented, creative and full of life. Take care of yourself, your life. Do not let your essence be cluttered with so much social medial. I read that you unfollow and just focus on the social sites that speak to you and are meaningful. Good start. I would go even further and ask that you challenge yourself to abstain from social media for a month. Would you be able to do it? Are you dependent on it? You have a strong presence online. Don’t get lost in it. Much love. Peace. XX- Mel

      1. I just read this several times over … thank you, I think I needed to hear that. Throwing myself into this world so fully and early runs the risk of that happening … and I should probably try this advice. Thank you

      2. Your lovely and you’re worthy. I’m following you. I have a sixteen year old. Did not mean to lecture it’s just the mother in me. Take care beautiful. Looking forward to seeing you blossom into you. If there is a red carpet somewhere in my future, I’m hooking you up with front row tickets. Dream big! Right?

  2. Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving your footprint of thoughts behind. I always appreciate hearing others thoughts on my poems. Blogging is a fun way to meet people from around the world and experience new perspectives. I am a self taught blogger and I can do it, you can too.
    Good luck with your book.
