Rainy dayz

     It's a rainy day here in Michigan. Just the way I like it. Nothing like rain to wash away the sorrows of yesterday and breathe life into the creativity of today. 
     I wrote six pages last night in The Vengeance of Verona, which is looking like it's going to be a Novelette. It's coming along nicely now and I'm really thrilled with the piece. The great thing with writing short stories about a side character, is that it really helps you to connect to that character. I really feel like I know Verona and that's only going to help strengthen her part in my current novel.
     With the rain coming down today, I think I'm going to work on VOV again this evening. For some reason, rain just works for me. I write better; the words just flow from my fingers. I might even get the first draft finished, if I don't get distracted-- I have disc 2 of Glee calling my name ;)
     If anyone reading this wants to comment, tell me about the things that rev up your creativity and the things that always seem to distract you. Happy reading!
Thank you:


  1. Rain is the best! You can just hold up inside and enjoy the gray, and not feel obligation to be runny around outside in the sunlight. I feel like I work best when I am anxious or feeling antsy. I have to have the creative mojo going on or I can't draw a thing or come up with a single witty comment. :)

  2. I've also recently figured out that movie soundtracks inspire me. My favorite to listen to is the soundtrack for the movie, Amazing Grace (totally recommend that movie!). It's a very epic soundtrack with lots of ups and downs. If not for that, then I put in my "sounds of a storm" CD. Such a great CD that I sometimes think it really is raining outside. Thanks for reading, rating, and commenting!!!


Then she heard it; the thudding of swift moving, heavy paws. She tapped the reins against Charming’s neck. He spun on his heel as Belle drew one of her revolvers... Find out what happens next in THE BEAST:
