The Writing Process World Blog Tour

This week I’m participating in the “Writing Process World Blog Tour."
I was invited to join by Author Jennifer Davies.


 Jennifer is a wife of eighteen years and is married to her best friend and her biggest critic! She is a mother of four very active boys who constantly keep her on her toes and give their share of sleepless nights, but they are her greatest source of pleasure and pride. Reading is a love of hers, and some of her favorite authors inlcude Jodi Picoult, Deborah Harkness and Cassandra Clare. Through her love of reading she developed a thirst and passion for writing. Jennifer has written her first YA romantic fantasy titled Children of Annwn:The Promise due for release in September, and she is currently writing the second and third book in the series.

The story centers around Mia Leronde who is from the Otherworld a magical realm hidden to humans through magic. After falling in love, and undertaking the Promise an ancient law she is sent into the human world to test the power of her love, and if she fails to fulfill her promise, she will remain in a world she doesn't belong and lose her magic. It's about making a promise and fighting against all the odds to fulfill it despite the challenges one may face. It's good versus evil where both Mia and her love Ryder are tested because when they arrive in the human world, they have no memory of their past...  

As part of the blog hop, all of us are answering the same four questions about our writing process. Here you go...

1.  What am I working on?

As a new author, I am currently working on the second book in the "Delivered" series.  I am also writing a biography for a woman who met death at the door but is still here with us today and wants her story told.  This is the story of Faye Tedder.  I should be complete with this biography in about two weeks and hopefully publication will happen before the end of 2014.  My second book is due to be published in 2015.

2.  Hows does your work differ from those in your genre?

I believe my work is based on many of my life experiences and comes from the heart.  These are experiences I am willing to share with the public so that they may find answers or maybe even a light at the end of their tunnel.  I do my best to tug at the make people think!

3.  Why do you write what you write?

Because it brings me peace.  I was an adpted child who suffered from seizures.  I was also in an abusive relationship so I have a lot to draw on.  Through my stage plays and now books, I am being healed all over again and if I am being healed of bad situations and circumstances that have occured in my life...think of how many other people will receive healing as well.  There is so much drama in our families and our homes and our work places and I write to bring those dramatic situations to light so that we can deal with them or at least know they exist.

4.  How does your writing process work?

Well since I am employed full-time as an accountant, I generally write in the early morning or late evening when I am at peace.  I have to get away from the sounds of life to be creative and if I am in a quite setting such as by the water or the mountains..even in the quiet of my bedroom...I can and will write until I am finished with the book or play.

I will post a list of writers soon who will join me in this world blog hop and they will post on the 19th.

Press In Your Pain

It has been a while since my last post but a lot has happened in and around me.  Some good, some not so good, but all came together to make me a stronger woman and for that, I am most thankful.  In the past few months I have learned how painful a press can be.  We hear that when life hands you lemons to make lemonade.  Well friends, that is easier said than done and I am sure there are a lot of you out there who agree with me.  When life hands you a lemon, most of us do not think of making lemonade rather, we think of the seeds that it contains and how sour it is to taste.  We think about how difficult it is to peel a lemon and the sting the smell can cause in your nose.  In other words we think about all of the things that make it difficult to get to that lemonade.  That my friends is process of pain.

When we are in pain and I am not talking about physical pain per say, we hurt, we ache, we are uncomfortable, and we want to be left alone to deal with that pain.  We want relief, yes, …

A Time to Turn

In everyone's life there comes a time to turn.  Turn why, you ask?  Well if you have lived as long as I have, 50 years, you learn that your quality of life is much more important than your quatity of life. As you grow and develop relationships with others, at one time in your life those relationships are important to your continued growth.  But as you age, and my prayer is that you will, you learn that those relationships that at one time seemed to be beneficial to your very existence, are NO LONGER NEEDED.

When I decided to move from my hometown and live in a totally different city and state and time zone, I knew that there were some people I was saying goodbye to, for the last time.  I knew there were people who while essential to my projects and my overall well being, no longer had a place in my life.  I knew this and with a sadness, accepted it.  When I returned, I no longer had a desire to be near them or associate with them.  I had made a turn.

A turn for the better.  This …

Watch Your "Back"

Many times when we are involved in something be it for church, school, work or even a hobby we may have, we are surrounded by people who are in support of what we are doing.  We often hear, "I've got your back", and keep it moving feeling as if nothing and no one can harm us.  That even if someone tried, those who "have" our backs, will defend us and keep anyone who wants to cause harm or stop the progression of God in our lives, away from us.  We feel confident in that, and most times don't even bat an eye.

But friends, we have to be in constant prayer as to who has our backs.  What do I mean by that? Well not everyone who says they HAVE your back should be AT your back.  Let me break it down even further.  If the person watching your back is trying to manipulate your circle, you need to change those or the one who is "backing" you.  Not everyone who says they have our backs, have our backs. Some are watching our backs only to gain entry into who…
