can’t post using Goggle account

EDIT!!! If you are having a problem posting with your Google account, where you get stuck in the loop of death, where it asks you repeatedly to sign in—over and over again. Just uncheck the "keep me signed in" box. And that will fix the issue... at least for now!

I can’t post using Goggle account, so if some of you don’t allow for anonymous post, I won’t be able to post on your blog until Goggle figures this out… they “say” their working on it, though it’s been a week already.

I just wanted you to know, so you don’t think I have stoped visiting your blogs… thx for stopping by.

Oh-yeah, I have moved past my mental block, and I am moving forward… things are looking up. Thx to everyone who has left a comments on my blog. You and your advice have helped me a great deal… I wouldn't be where I am at without you!!!

If the good writing continues, I should be done with my second draft this weekend (thx the heavens) I’ll be starting the third revision sometime next week, this time I’ll focus on brevity, flow and (hopefully) minor issues.

... thx again ...

Good Reads

Just finished Brandon Sanderson’s Mist Born Trilogy and I must say it was really good.

I am now reading Cassandra Clare’s, City of Bones: her first book in The Mortal Instruments trilogy. I am half way through the first book and like it quite well.

Both the series have a girl, soon to be woman as the MC, and if you like action and a great story you might want to give them a read.

I tried to write something else, besides the second draft of my novel, and I couldn’t do it. It felt like I was cheating on my wife. It felt like I was betraying all the characters, leaving them to die.

So, I can’t move on… that means I hope I find out (Somehow, by revelation or some other kind of miracle)  what’s holding me up SOON. All I need is one chapter to tie in both halves of my story… I have waited weeks, and I have tried writing several drafts of this chapter-- to end up just trashing them. I have spent hours going over the story and plot in my head every night before I go to bed, but nothing I come up with feels write, it might be good writing but it just doesn’t fit somehow (wish I knew why). Sorry to rant, not really making any sense… just felt better to vent, thx for indulging me!

What books have you read lately that you would recommend.

I’ve been out of town working, with little to no internet access, so I am sorry if I haven’t been able to keep up with your blog… I’ll do my best in the future to do so.

I really appreciate all the comments you leave, they DO help me become a better writer.

Thx for any comment you might leave, it will not fall on deaf ears.

I’m struggling on my second draft. I have rewritten chapter 10 several times, and every time it just doesn’t work. I am in a funk right now... hopefully it will pass.
