Story to App

So lately my story writing has slowly been turning over to writing for an app my husband has going. He is creating a garden app and needed someone to write the plant information and input all that information into a data base. Now mind you I never saw this coming years back but it’s here now. I still have this second book I am working on . I didn’t make it for camp nano unfortunately. I”m hoping to write the third book come this next camp nano. We’ll see. I”ll really have to get this second story done first.

So how am I going to manage this work for my husband and my own writing? To be honest, I don’t know. I’m still trying to figure that out. I think for today I am going to try to work a little on the database information and then I’ll try working on writing a blog post for my character Cora, and then end the day with some writing.

Okay! So that’s the plan. I’ll be back at the end of the day and let you know how everything turned out today and if my plan worked.

Take care!

A Daughter's Reflection

Taking It Back

Over the last couple of night’s I guess I have felt like the only book I have to publish are my poetry. But they aren’t going to get me far. My other two books A Daughter’s Reflection, and Secret Anguish I guess I really wrote for myself at this point. Maybe the Secret Anguish; My Journey through Mental Health will turn into something at some point but I just don’t feel like it’s ready yet.

So now what’s in store for me? Well I have been working on a Sackets Harbor, NY series but I also thought of writing as a character on my blog. We’ll see. I’ll have to do some brainstorming. So that’s where I am. How far along are you on your story?

Mental health

Writing With Generalized Anxiety

So most days I sit here trying to work on my story or even to write another blog post and I simply freeze.  I’m caught in the grip of anxiety wondering if I’ll ever get out and if I’ll have any kind of writing career. I need to meditate more and I do have a meditating app on my iPad which helps. But should I give up? What should I do? I know talking to someone helps but I don’t have that kind of person to talk to. You know the type I mean, creative but understands anxiety and mental illness.

If you are a creative person who suffers from anxiety what is it you do before you sit down and write that allows you to be able to write and  create masterful works of art? Please feel free to leave a comment or email me at jisoucie@hotmail.com.
