Exciting Times


Posted by Jodi | Posted in From Bean Counter to Author, Some spare thoughts from a writer | Posted on 18-02-2017

I’m concentrating, or at least trying to concentrate, on my writing. I know there is no try, anyway I do my best.

I’m splitting my writing time between Rogue Coffee Roasters and the new Starbucks. Either way they give me a good and usually vibrant place to concentrate on my writing. This is good, if I can tear myself away from social media. For the most part I have to split my time between both.

For now, I am still concentrating on my 2nd book, “Misty’s Magical Shed”. This is a work I have been working with posts  here on my webpage. In the meantime I’m working to submit my first book, “Not Too Late Forever”. This book is my dream come true. I continue to hope that an agent will fall in love with this and lose her/himself in the story and world of  Xandra and Baret. There are three additional books started in this, the Naldo Series. I have two more stand alone books that I have a great start on thanks to NaNoWriMo.

Well anyway, in the between times of my day job and community activities, I write and talk to my characters. This way when I do find the agent who believes in me and my writing, I have a headstart to books that will fulfill promises to readers.

As usual I keep working and hoping.

Until next time, keep reading and writing.

Kindest regards,


Taking Chances and Enjoying life

This past week I worked on a Twitter pitch for #mswl on February 8, 2017. I’m not sure if it is the right thing to do, but I posted it. It’s so difficult to determine what to do and not do when it comes to these things. Oh well, if nothing else, I can go back through and check out what the posting agents have said they are looking for.

This evening for The Creative Hour, I continue to work on “Misty’s Magical Shed”. It feels so good to lose myself in my writing.

I’m sure that I’ve said before how grateful I am for my writing. It is an amazing escape.

Things are looking up for another opportunity to travel to Surrey British Colombia for SiWC17. I am still working to pitch my Soft Science Fiction with elements of Romance. Opportunity abounds for me to follow my passion.

Now to get back to my writing.

Happy reading and writing,
