Entwined In Rain And River

lovers watercoloursSplatter paint over the canvas,

Reds and gold, crimson bold,

Behold,

A master piece,

A story told,

A lover’s qualm,

A soft charm,

The lights that sprinkle the moon above,

I’ll paint a picture of,

In this picture we will be lovers,

Entwined in rain and river,

Stroked and shaded,

Posed and paraded,

Locked enduringly,

For all of history,

Tinted as one.

I Change My Mind So Often I Exhaust Myself

I change my mind so often I exhaust myself.

This quote couldn’t be more real for me personally. I have a problem. I think of a great story. I’m really enthusiastic and begin writing, planning etc. Then around chapter 8-10 I begin doubting. I STOP writing. I think hmm maybe I should write something else or go back to a previous half written manuscript; which I left in doubt.

How do I get through this phase?

I love writing Historical/Romance, but found it hard in terms of research. I started writing a fantasy type novel. Which I was extremely confident about, until recently when I started doubting, and began thinking about going back to the historical/romance story.

Any ideas or tips on how to get through that phase?

What do you do in order to block those thoughts and stick with one idea?

Cosmic Olive Trees

cottageThe lake lucid, frosty, rugged, serene, reflective, pebbles and gravel converge on the lake-bed. The surrounds seem to a city dweller somewhat philosophical, cosmic olive trees, russet solid trunks line the banks, green grass unfolds, and enduring stone cottages litter the countryside.
