I Wish I Could Just Write

I wish I could just write. 

With no quizes, tests, or papers to complete. With no Spanish or math to frustrate me. With no interruptions or fatigue.

I wish the words would just come without any struggle. 
I wish people could see what I see, feel what I feel, and hear what hear. Those things I cannot find the words on the page to describe.
I wish grammar wasn't important and didn't drive me nuts.
I wish the fear of opinions didn't slow me down.
I wish life didn't always effect what I write.

Maybe I like that last one.

But only because God controls the life that effects what I write.


  1. This is something I think about a lot. However, I'm glad that life doesn't pass me by because I'm too busy scribbling in my notebook. I want to be the kind of writer who has to live before they write about living.

    Great post! I certainly wouldn't mind if school was canceled for the month of November because of NaNoWriMo.

    1. Haha, there was a very good reason I didn't do Nano this year. I would go insane!

  2. Oh, I know that feeling. I wish there wasn't anything to get in the way of writing. No road blocks or mind blocks. No research to be done. I wish I could just write! Wouldn't that be nice? (sighs dreamily) I wish knew everything there is to know about English and grammar and punctuation and how to use them all but, alas, if wishes were flees we would be infested! :) Good post.


    1. Actually, I like research, but I don't like it taking time away from writing : )

How to Create a Fact Manual for a Book Series {Peek into My Next Story}

I started my current story, Ideal Lies, last year, and this time, I decided to make it a trilogy. This story is a mix between dystopian and utopian.

I Missed the Only Year of My Life When I Could Sing, "I am sixteen going on seventeen."

Sound of Music has been my favorite movie since I was in kindergarten. My second favorite scenes was the invasion of the Nazi's. Don't ask why? I guess it was foreshadowing to my future history major. My favorite scene is when Liesl sings, "I am sixteen going on seventeen." 
     For years, I waited until I turned sixteen so I could sing that song. I didn't care that the two characters were falling in love. I just wanted to sing the lines, "I am sixteen," with accuracy. 
     Well, today I am seventeen. In the past year, I never got the chance to watch Sound of Music and sing along. This kind of made me sad . . . 
     Until I think back to all the times my sister, MK, sang the songs from The Sound of Music with beauty and grace. She fell in love with the movie just like had, and she doesn't care that she's not sixteen. She just loves music and singing. Listening to her was better than fulfilling a childhood dream.
