Ehh, what’s up doc?

Ehh, what’s up doc?

Good question. I’ve had zero time for writing, the sequel to my book is on pause, etc.

So my question is, “God, what would you have me do writing wise? You created me with the urge and desire to write? What will it be, Lord?”

Writing a novel is an emotionally and physically draining task for me or labor of love rather. I put so much of myself into it, into the characters, and I currently don’t have the strength to give the sequel to my firstborn book baby what it deserves.

I’m the solo mom (only involved parent/not a co-parent) of a son on the autism spectrum (ASD), and we are homeschoolers of the unschooling persuasion. My son turned 16 recently, and apparently according to other ASD moms, the 16th year was one of the toughest years with their ASD kiddos.

Hormones + ASD = Hell on earth for the child and the parent(s) 

I’ve recently experienced exhaustion levels I felt I’d die from, begged God to rapture us on numerous occasions to relieve our suffering, ugly cried for days on end into my pillow, forgot to wash said pillow many times, didn’t care, too tired.

So what to blog? It’s something I am prayerfully seeking God about because I miss writing so much but don’t have it in me to write my next novel quite yet.

Topics I am prayerfully contemplating – parenting an ASD kid as a solo mom, the praying life, suffering and faith (so exciting, right?), depression, OCD, trying to parent an ASD kid alone with health issues of my own, the Spirit-filled life, and sprinklings on writing as God leads me (especially in regards to it as an unquenchable calling He Himself placed in those whom He’s called to write).

Happy to have written a little something today. 🙂

The Purpose of a Villain (Muahahahaha)

villains

A throwback to a post I did called How to Teach A Villain New Tricks. Not all of the above applies, nor should we bend every antagonist or villain to fit every point, but it is good to have “sparks” that help our minds better shape our bad guy or gal.

My current writing playlist

I’m working on book 2, Oswald Spoon and the Resurrection of Pixel Face, The ResQ 2.0, in my Oswald Spoon series/sequel (not sure if it’ll be two or three books yet).

Music is so inspiring and stirs emotion and has that nostalgia effect. Moves my heart so deeply. Gotta have my music.

Here’s my current writing playlist:

What music do you like to write to?
