Life Happens… That’s When We Need To Adjust

It is alway disappointing when you have to decide one of your goals/deadlines must be pushed out further than expected. Life it seems has gotten in the way of things for the last few weeks. Now I am trying to get back into the swing of things which hasn’t been easy.

Let me explain: The last week of July and into August I was down helping my sister with a Day Camp she helps run for Boy Scouts. The weekend after I returned I spend three days with the rest of my sisters. Going to the fair, A night with Tony at the park, and watching the meteor shower on her back porch. One weekend there was nothing planned, then I got sick. I had to skip my sister’s housewarming party the next weekend because I slept most of the day. The day after was our annual Fantasy Football party.  (I had a blast during all of those events, even the Fantasy Football party! Though I slept the rest of the day when I returned home.)

So for nearly a month, my writing has taken a backseat to life and I was unable to accomplish the goals I set for myself. Although, I realize life is life and things like spending time with my sisters will take precedence. My relationship with them is something I treasure. My writing accomplishments suffered because I wasn’t prepared for the time I would spend away from my computer.


I am sad to announce that while editing and revising Fight of the Heart, I realized that in my heart it was not where I want it to be and had to make the hard decision to completely re-write it, which will obviously affect it’s publication deadline. I know in my heart that when this story is finished, it will be one hundred times better than it was. Unfortunately, some things never go as planned and schedules need to be adjusted.

I will keep you posted on it’s progress as I move forward with the re-write along with all my other projects.

Speaking of other projects… Jazzmine: Conquer the Darkness Series (Book 3) is still on track for it’s publication at the end of September, so keep an eye out for it. Want to read book 1 for FREE, click HERE!

While I am still a bit out of wack and recovering, know that I am now back at work, striving harder than ever to provide you with great fiction. With that being written, I better go so I can continue with my writing.

Ever have life get in the way? Comment and let me know, I know I am not the only one this happens too.

My journey has led me to this moment, this time and this adventure. I forge forward to provide great stories and helpful information to those who were once in my position. Searching and yearning for something more. To those searching, keep to your journey. You’ll reach your destination. Enjoy the adventure, learn from the obsticles, and stive for your dreams.

    That is right, Kelly! Life is what happens to you while you are making other plans. That’s a quote, but I can’t remember who originally said it. Look how long it took me to graduate from college. Not that some of that wasn’t my fault, but I think I did better, because I did it when and how I wanted to, instead of because it was “expected” of me. Good thing I didn’t turn into Ted Kraczynski ( the Unabomber).
