So I am having a music week. It is often the case when I am writing. So I will be doing songs this time for IF. 

The first one is a song that I have known since I was little, but has been shuffled back into my listening library because of a show that me and my daughter started watching a few months ago. If you are a fan I won't need to tell you which show it is.

The next one is also a song from my childhood, the difference is this one is a cover. I heard this cover on the movie A Walk Through the Tombstones. (Good movie btw) Some people don't like remakes/covers. I think when done well they are awesome. 

So finding this song on youtube led me to another cover by Nouela. 

Last one is probably something you heard on the radio, but a book I hope to have out this year(much later this year O_O) has a bit of an animal side to it. This song helps me get in the mood when I am brainstorming. 

Well these are some things that inspired me this week. What about you? As always have fun and keep writing.

New Year, New Plan.

I want to start this post by saying, thank you. For a bit over two years now I have really enjoyed meeting everyone and being inspired by this community. I have learned so much and grown more than I could have imagined.

This last year 2014, I had the joy of seeing my son born. As anyone who has children knows, there is nothing like it. So I will hold that year as special for that reason. Unfortunately it was also one of the harder years I have had in a very long time. 

Many personal reasons, some I have shared some not, have made this the case. I am the kind of person to be optimistic and try to push through no matter what. This means I made plans and constantly saw them fall away from me. It was very discouraging to say the least. 

My writing and my blogging took a major hit and I felt, if I am honest, a bit lost. 

The good news is, writing is a part of me and no matter what happens I don't think I could stop even if I wanted to. Rest assured I don't want to.  

So I took January and really looked at everything. I got my beta readers, my CP and my editor and told them of my plans. Which I guess is another way of saying, I have a plan.

2015 will be a good year for me. I will be finishing my third book in the Light Bringer Saga. I also have plans for a new series coming out this year and I can't wait for everyone to hear about it. In the next few months I will be showing that cover for Light Bringer I talked about a bit back. 

For me I didn't want to do New Year's resolutions. I wanted to instead make permanent changes in my life that will last and take me where I want to go. I feel like I have started to accomplish that and so I am very optimistic and very hyped for this year. 

Anyway, I hope to see you all around more often and I can't wait to be inspired by your words. As always, have fun and keep writing.
