Challenge Accepted…again :)

I’m like a cat.  I’m pretty sure I was a cat or some form of royalty in a past life due to my predisposition to lazing about, eating bon-b..well anything really, and lazing about some more. 😉  Lazy-Princess-Cat is here.

you can find anything on the internet!

Every once in a while though I transform into my human form and decide I have to get something done. My 500 Words is where I’m starting…again 🙂

Writing is what I want to do and it’s probably the one thing that drags my ass away from the TV to the Computer. Yes, I am still working on not having multiple tabs open, staring at me whispering click me..I’m fun! Oh look what so-and-so just posted! LOL!

My 500 Words will help with prompts so I am not feeling the pressure of coming up with everything on my own. Writing everyday has been a key component of this craft that I’ve struggled with; kind of like the cat struggling to find that perfect spot in the middle of the hallway.

There are other things about writing that we all struggle with.  I pointed out three of my weak spots and posted about them in my first Challenge Accepted thinking that saying them out loud (well, sorta) would make feel accountable to them. I’ve definitely worked on two of them but writing every..single…day is sometimes hard.

it's real?
It is hard isn’t it?

I don’t mean just blogging every day either. I mean working on my first complete book. I’ve got the idea, I’ve got the plan but I am simply not working hard enough on the outline, character development and all the other mini pieces that come before spitting something out that someone else might want to read. I’ve taken shots..I’ve done some work but I don’t have a dedicated habit when it comes to my writing.  Dedicated to Lazy seems to be more my speed.

So in the name of accountability, I’m going to let Cow Pasture Chronicles know that I’m taking up the challenge since this was where I found it in the first place. I’m inspired by people who challenge themselves and I love that she has a whole page dedicated to the different challenges she’s participating in. I hope to eventually try them all 😉

At this point I would usually write some sort of cop-out statement like:

“This might work. It might not. At least I will have tried.” but I’m not going to this time. (ok I did but then I deleted it and wrote that – so that counts for something right?!)  Well I’m a WIP – as long as that acronym means Work in Progress. (please correct me if I’m wrong in the comments)

I hope to revert my lazy-princess-cat attitude back into a kitten running and chasing that laser beam up the wall. I will write 500 words a day. I will see this through.

Catch ya on the flip side of 15,500.

Yeah that’s right.  I did the math.

Yes, I am.
Yes, I am.

After their battles in Gaia and surviving the Island of Pallice, the champions of Windemere are off on their next adventure.

In his quest to be a hero and help others, Luke Callindor has jumped into danger countless times and would do so again without hesitation. So when he is infected by the toxic Dark Wind, it is up to his friends to find a cure and keep his courage alive. With time running out and their enemies in the shadows, one ally will make the decision to share in Luke’s suffering and forge a bond that runs thicker than blood. Such a sacrifice might not be enough when the truth behind this living curse comes to light.

Will Luke find the strength to defeat the Dark Wind? What ghosts from his past will appear during his weakest hour?

About the Author:

Charles author photo B&WCharles Yallowitz was born and raised on Long Island, NY, but he has spent most of his life wandering his own imagination in a blissful haze. Occasionally, he would return from this world for the necessities such as food, showers, and Saturday morning cartoons. One day he returned from his imagination and decided he would share his stories with the world. After his wife decided that she was tired of hearing the same stories repeatedly, she convinced him that it would make more sense to follow his dream of being a fantasy author. So, locked within the house under orders to shut up and get to work, Charles brings you Legends of Windemere. He looks forward to sharing all of his stories with you and his wife is happy he finally has someone else to play with.
