What I have learned


After talking to some new friends, and reading some tips for blogging I think I can do this. I found an agents blog (thanx to a new friend) that I think would be help for any aspiring writers http://www.rachellegardner.com/ also http://warriorwriters.wordpress.com/ has some grate tips. I have found both helpful. Not saying that now I am a blog expert, but knowing a little more shore helps.

I knew writing a book wasn’t going to be easy, but until I started I had no idea what I was getting into. With three young kids at home (8, 2, &1) I don’t have a lot of time, but I knew a long time ago this was something I wanted to do. It doesn’t mater if I don’t get this book published, what maters is that I’m happy with my work and enjoying what I’m doing. I’m an artist so I have always looked at what I do that way, at the same time being my own worst enemy. Just because I don’t like something I have done does not mean it isn’t good. So now I am taking my time, and figuring out who I am as a writer. I paint, tattoo, design most of the tattoos I do, and have written a lot of poetry, none of this compares to writing a book. I am creating hole new people, a new world, a different life from our own, I find it to be magic. Most of the time when I site down to write I’m excited, unless of course nothing is coming to mind. I know this post isn’t very long, but learning that in my mind I can do this is note worthy to me.

I would love to here from other writers. When you started did you feel like maybe you weren’t meant  to be a writer, that maybe you where wrong? How did you come to realize you where just being over critical of your work or self?


About artfulhelix

I'm a mother to three beautiful boys, 8 years, 2 years, and 1 year old, all there birthdays in April with mine (very busy month). I am a wife to a wonderful man who supports every thing I want to do. I have 10 piercings and 11 tattoos, more tattoos coming soon. I am an artist, painting, tattooing, sculpting (haven't done that for a long time), poetry, and a few small crafts. As an artist I felt writing was the next logical step for me. I am enjoying every minute of it, writing, blogging (never thought I would blog), and critiquing. I not only want to talk about my book and the writing proses, but art in general in my blog. I would like to share a poem I wrote a few years ago, but is so me. I came up with it when a very old woman came up to me on the side walk and said " Do you know you are going to hell?" laughing a little inside I said "No, why am I going to hell?" "Because you have desecrated the lords temple with all your piercings and tattoos!" She looks so serious when she said this. I said "I'm not desecrating, I'm decorating!" well that made her mad of course, and she stomped off. later I wrote this: You look at me that way in disgust and disdain I’m pierced and tattooed I must be insane But who are you to judge when you kneel down and pray Just because our beliefs are not the same We are not so different you and I for we are all the same when we die This is nothing against religion, merely about judgment in general. Can't wait to share more of what I love and who I am.
