Day 9: Writing the Blues


I’ve hit some really emotionally taxing chapters over the past few days.

I may or may not have cried a tiny bit whilst writing.

These scenes are difficult to write. They pull so much out of me, making me feel incredibly vulnerable.

So, the writing has slowed down a bit. Fortunately, I’m still ahead. Close to 34,000 words.

Thanks, friends, for your encouragement. It truly props me up.

*watch for Monday’s post for a book give-away*

  1. You can do it. Yesterday I wrote a page and a half and considered that to be an accomplishment. Way to go Mz. Susie, way to go!!


    1. Thanks, Jessie! And, hooray for you! Great going!


  2. Pleased to realize you are indeed human. I will now think of you as WonderWoman rather than SuperWoman. Those difficult-to-write sections might make your readers cry too, and that’s okay.


    1. Oh, Denise, I am very, very human. 🙂 However, I do have an invisible jet plane. I’ll show it to you sometime.

      I know that a lot of this book will make people cry. But, hopefully, the tears will be cleansing.


  3. You seem to be on pace for the writing challenge Susie…isn’t it crazy how we can pour ourselves into a pages and lose ourselves in it at times….its a good a thing…its coming from a good place my dear…you…(now dont fritz out your computer by raining on it ..I’m thinking splash guard , googles or something… good luck with the rest of it…:)


    1. I’m going to check ebay for a splash guard. The really emotional parts are still to come. 🙂

      Thanks for commiserating with me.


  4. Keep on plugging away — you inspire me!
