I'm often amazed at the way my mind works. It astounds me and, often, makes me think about what kind of person I am. I'm typical, in some ways. Let's just leave it at that, shall we?
I had a bit of bad news and in the midst of it all, I had a story epiphany. Has this ever happened to you? So focused on reality and things going on in your life and you have to stop, pause and write something down.
Weird. Just. Weird.
At any rate, there are a couple things going on. I finally got tired of Facebook. ::Can hear the sighs of relief and cheers from here:: I know a lot of people did not like that social/marketing platform. I have a Google+ account and have been neglecting that, along with Twitter. Don't get me wrong, I'm good at Twitter, I just don't use it as often as I should be.
Needless to say, my enthusiasm for promoting much of anything has waned and dwindled down to almost nothing. So I'm trying to spark it back up again.
I have a few places you can follow me:
Twitter: Which is @MLChesley. I love getting followers and it doesn't have to be book related. I'm casting aside a lot of people who were just trying to up their numbers/followers, or just no longer suit any of my needs. I'm following writers I know from my social media places or have read their books and liked them. I'm following TV/Movie stuff, games, gamers, just about anyone I have something in common with and who are willing to follow me back and not dump me because I'm inactive sometimes.
Pinterest: Yep, I'm on there, too. I'm getting ready to start adding more stuff to my boards with my books/short stories. But I also have a ton of awesome fantasy artwork, other art, gaming stuff (Come on, it's me, remember??) craft stuff, jewelry. All sorts.
Google+: You can find me there. It's either Mel or Melissa Chesley. Just run a search, you can find me.
Facebook: It's still active just because of family, friends and other groups.
I always follow back. I'm trying to get back into a better time management routine. Things have been changing from week to week this past month.
On a good news note, my daughter graduated from CNA school and will be testing in June for her certificate. She's also applying for a job to get her foot in the door. I've been babysitting and working part time on the weekends, so I don't have much time for myself, but I'm gaining some back.
Alright, so you know where to find me now. Have a great week!
So what odd circumstances have you been in when you received an epiphany about a story you're working on?
