Back! With New Stories!

Hey…did you miss me? I missed you.

But sabbaticals can be good for the soul. I really needed the time to think, focus, attend many many meetings, discuss marketing and development, decide where I wanted to go and who’s company I wanted to keep. You know, all the boring stuff that doesn’t go into the story.

Well, for fun, I’ve started an interactive story on Writing.com. You can join in here. It’s a dark and twisted Irish faerie tale with political intrigue and blood…lot’s of blood.

I have arranged it so you can read the prologue, continue on to chapter 1 and then select options on where you’d like the story to go. If you’re reading faster than I can write, then you can actually write some content or ideas yourself on where you’d like the story to go.

Finding the Time

I am often asked when I find the time to write by people who know me well.

I’ll give you a peek in if you don’t know me well, but would like to: I have a full time job as a technician and MA for a doctor’s office, I’m going back to school to be an NP, I have 2 beautiful little girls to take care of, a wonderful husband, a garden, a girl puppy named LeeLoo, a boy kitty named Asimov, I’m the lead singer for Gravity Giving In, I’m a published poet and an author. 

Want to know my dirty little secret?

One word: prioritize.

Life isn’t perfect. I don’t give each aspect of my life equal amounts of attention–that’s impossible. I do manage my time well, make goals and carry them out. 

Writing is a stress reliever for me. It’s a priority. So, when I have free time, I write. If it wasn’t a priority, I wouldn’t do it. 

So, there you have it. If you have something you want to do, make it a priority and get it done. Don’t tell yourself if (insert circumstance) happens then you’ll write/edit/publish–it’ll never happen. 

Yours,

–Lizi
