Then and Now

Face it, everyone goes into the New Year with a resolution or two -- even if you keep it secret, you've got one. But how many people stop, take a moment to look back at the person they were a year ago, five years ago or perhaps ten years ago and who they are today?

It's a big question and it has a big answer.

A few months back, there was a writing challenge the topic of which was "write an essay: you - then and now." I had this wonderful piece typed up then deleted it. C'mon, we're writers! How many of us have done that? Written something haunting and meaningful, read it and hated it then threw it away only to mourn the loss seconds later...All of us, I am sure. But the summation was the best part, so I'll repeat it here, "Once, I was intelligent, bright and sure. Today, I am merely incandescent."

Why? The same way a mentally savaged soldier and a physically crippled ballerina found perfection, fluidity of motion and union in my first print book, The Ballet. To understand, you'll just have to read it for yourself.

30 Days of Sweat

30 Days of Sweat

1000 words a day everyday for the month of January.

Well it’s time for me to get back on track and write regularly. My baby is here, and I have no more excuses, but plenty of deadlines piling up in my near future. To make this work as a career, you have to do two things. Write regularly, and promote what you write. If you are missing one or both parts of the formula, your sales are going to suffer, and you will never get better. Craft is perfected by practice..

There are always reasons to put it off, family should come first. Then you have to prioritize. Money second or third depending—but if you’re writing to get rich—Ahem—you may be in the wrong field. This year we had a lot of setbacks personally, my husband went blind in his right eye, and had multiple complications like glaucoma and extremely painful migraines. I had gotten pregnant as well, and now have a newborn to care for. We had to replace the drainage pipes under the bathroom floor. I didn’t write much of anything. Most of my published books had been written the year before. My time, energy, and pocketbook has been drained, but I will always come back to my first love of writing despite the barriers.

I need to set some achievable goals to get my writing all done. So, for the month of January, I plan to make it a month where I write everyday. 1000 words a day will be enough to finish a novella—and more than enough to get my two major projects done.

Paris Bites rewrite ending lost on computer--20,000 words
Untitled (my first m/m story)—10,000 words

Some people are already doing great, writing 10 pages or more everyday. Others, may be lucky to write that in a month. You may set your goal higher or shorter. This is my goal, because I feel it’s the right amount and that my family won’t suffer for 4-5 pages a day. Fellow authors, please feel free to join me if you can. Tell me what you are working on and post how much you were able to write today. Being accountable to someone will help motivate you (and me).

I plan to post all the updates to my yahoo loop. So join me here:

Meet Forbes Huntington from Cover Model by Marie Rochelle

Cover Model
Will the cop in him be more? Romance writer Kissa "Bri" Collins tried not to notice how unbelievably handsome the model was the second he sauntered in horribly late to her model search. Dark brown hair with natural highlights brushed the collar of his white t-shirt, compelling gray eyes held hers as she tried to keep her composure as his deep rich voice apologized for being late. Never being involved with a case that he couldn't handle FBI agent Forbes Huntington takes risks for a living. In the fifteen years he has been an agent there hasn't been a job that he hadn't used his strength, charm or good looks to get solved. So, he wasn't worried about this new case that his boss assigned him to. How hard could it be posing as a cover model for a romance novel to catch a banker robber? Forbes thought he had everything under control until he walked late into the modeling auditions and spotted the woman of his dreams, his soul mate. Now how could he pretend to be something he wasn't and arrest her only living family member? When all he wanted to do was risk everything he had for a taste of her perfect mouth?
