I blame mercury retrograde - New York Times Bestselling Author, J. Sterling

I blame mercury retrograde

for the fact that I feel like I cannot MOVE FORWARD with this book i'm trying to write! 

(mercury retrograde is the apparent backward motion of the planet- and therefore, things from our past, people from our past, any unfinished business comes to a head during this time. also, since mercury rules communication- there tends to be tons of delays, issues with computers and electronics, etc. they also warn against signing any new contracts or deals during this time- as things won't be what they seem)

Think i'm kooky now? 

That's okay. I sorta am. lol 

Anyway, I have literally written THREE seperate versions of the book i'm currently working on. THREE.  Do you hear me?  T H R E E!  They're all written in different styles. I'm really excited about one of the styles. It's the most fun. It's the one I think you all will enjoy the most, but I'm not entirely sure.

So that's where I am right now. Continually starting over. Writing and then re-writing and then re-writing again.

I really should just put the computer down until Mercury Retro is over. But the truth is- I can't stop thinking about this book. I dream about the characters. My mind is constantly filled with them. When i'm not writing, I want to be.  But then when I sit down to write, I get stuck. 

Or bored.

Hence the three different versions.

I want you all to be excited about this story and the way I tell it. So, I know i'll figure it all out. But in the meantime, think of me, pulling my hair out while I type until my fingers go numb.

I do it for you.

lol  :)


  1. I'm pretty sure we would accept and love all three :-) SO EXCITED!

  2. I agree with Kimberly, I'm sure we will love whatever you write & will happily read away! BUT if you aren't convinced, maybe you could share with us a scene from your new story...post the same scene from each of the three books and get some feedback. Unless of course you don't want to share, in which case just forget I said anything :)

    Anyways, as always, thanks for sharing your thoughts with us!

  3. Whatever you write will be awesome and entertain us all! My two cents - step away from the computer and the story. Give it a couple days, or more. Your answer might be waiting for you when you come back to it. :)

  4. Same boat. Re-writing a story (for the third and FINAL time). But third time's a charm, right? Here's to hoping! Good luck!

  5. How ever you write it, you know I will be buying it! :P
