Unblocked


Hi there,

since  my recent post about writers block, which commented on my recent situation about being unable to write much of anything, I’ve managed to break through and start writing once more.

I’ve received some comments and helpful tips and hints on the last post and I would like to thank all those who read and contributed. It was very nice to hear from you and your thoughts actually helped.

I’m now back into the swing of writing once more, the ideas are flowing and I’m really excited about my new project.

The Ronin proof reading stage is also coming along nicely and look out for a sample coming soon.

That’s all for now folks,

see you soon,

Jan.

Writers Block


Hi there,

while I’ve been waiting for my re-working of Ronin to be edited I’ve started a new story and hopefully this will generate into  another series, but here’s the thing. Writers block has struck again, I have a basic idea of what I want, the outline is almost complete but getting it to manifest onto the computer is becoming almost impossible. I sit down to write and nothing comes and its really frustrating.

I want to write something of value and not just for the sake of seeing words appear before me, which is basically what I’m doing here, trying to stimulate the creative flow.

This has happened before and its usually triggered by something and once I’ve recognised what that trigger was I can address the problem and I’ll be able to continue with the story.

Hope its soon this is really getting me down,

see you soon,

Jan.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

New hope


Hi there,

in the last few months whilst writing my third installment of the Col Sec series I’ve wondered if all the work and effort has been or is going to be worth it. Then I saw a link to a writer named Dean Wesley Smith who has a blog and on this blog he explodes some of the myths associated with writers, writing and the publishing industry and it’s given me new hope.

Some of the stuff he writes about is eye-opening to say the least, and I must say it has given me somewhat of a new outlook on the entire thing.

A lot of the myths about writing are perpetrated by other more successful writers or writers who’s egos are bigger than their abilities and knowing that has helped give me the confidence to continue with what I’m doing.

I know deep in my heart that some day I will be able to be successful in what I do, that the Col Sec series will begin to sell and when that happens I can look back with pride and be glad that I didn’t listen to the doubters.

Pretty soon the cover for Omega will be completed, the editing will be done and dusted and I can get the book out there for you to sample or buy and enjoy. Hopefully by the end of the year the third installment, Discovery will be following into publication and people will be able to see how all the stories are linked and come together in a really cool way. For those who read them and become fans, what I’ve planned for the fourth installment will blow you all away.

That’s just the start folks, stay around, I promise you a great ride.

See you all soon,

Jan.

PS

It seems my interview on Indiereads.net has been delayed due to unforeseen circumstances but I promise that as soon as I know anything about when it’ll go online I will post the news on here.
