September #WriteMotivation Update #2 & Asking for a little help

My Golden Rule On Writing First Drafts

1) Forward progress. No numbers. Those are not allowed in my world! I’ve decided. Please see my previous blog post regarding the reasons why! It really is freedom for me and I’m so happy to share with all of you! And I have made progress M-F! YAY!
2) Complete blog posts for #writemotivation and hopefully have a few extras in there as I’m all dried up lately. I’ve managed this along with a few more.
3) Complete Crit in a timely mannerI currently have one, and I’ve been lacking on this STILL. Hopefully, I can get my butt in gear.
4) Read another book for pleasure. Not sure this is going to happen due to #3
5) And always, ALWAYS, provide unending support, cheering, and cookie flinging, to anyone who needs it. ALWAYS!


My family is going through some trying times at the moment, things that will take a lot of work to get through, and sometimes they feel like they will never get better. Struggling with all that we do takes its toll on us. They say, “That which doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger.” But the thing is, why does the weight of everything feel like it will. And the longer it goes, the heavier it gets. It never goes away, and sometimes you just know the easy way to make the pain go away…

If you pray, please say prayers for strength for us. If you don’t pray, good vibes, positive thoughts, positive energy, Wicca spells, or whatever you do would be welcome. Anything, and everything, is welcome.



  1. Ping from Rebecca L Fisk:

    Jamie- thank you for being the type of person who is able to say “I need help.” That is more important, and SO much harder than we give ourselves credit for sometimes. Still praying 🙂

  2. Ping from abigailkern:

    Another quote: That which doesn’t kill you makes you drink more. Will be praying for you. Sorry you’re going through this rough patch.

  3. Ping from MAJK (@Safireblade):

    prayers coming your way as well as good thoughts and vibes. Hang in there.


  4. Ping from Becca:

    Prayers and good thoughts for you guys! <3

  5. Ping from viklit:

    Positive thoughts and prayers for your family.

  6. Ping from Rebekah Loper:

    I’ll pray for you and your family, you pray for mine? *hug* I know what you mean about the weight feeling heavier and heavier. My blog post yesterday dealt with a lot of what I’m feeling right now, so I have a glimpse of what your emotional struggle is like right now.

    We’ll both survive. We have bigger and better things waiting for us.

  7. Ping from M. Andrew Patterson (@DyadicEchoes):

    Positive thoughts and vibes as always for you and your family. Sorry you’re having a difficult time.
