If You Can Think It…You Can Write It

Today I find myself doing some research for my unfinished book and the direction that I want it to go in. I started by looking on Pinterest (follow me on Pinterest at https://www.pinterest.com/bnicolebs/) for the location where my book takes place. I have done this before for this story, but I need to get a better grasp of the setting.

Then, I found myself searching for books that make the reader feel like they’re on vacation, because I want my book to feel like that (a vacation in a book). Now my Amazon wish list is a little longer, and I’ve managed to do some research while getting a little side tracked (I swear they should make pills for writer’s ADD!).

As I write this book, I find that there are many phases, steps, and procedures that take place over the course of writing a fiction novel. I’m learning all of these as I go, and I’m more intrigued than ever to learn about how the writing process goes for my peers.

Thank God for Pinterest, because it has allowed me to learn more about the story I want to write and to learn more about myself today. My husband has always said that I’m a dreamer. I’m desperately hoping that he is right and that it pays off one day. My thoughts are wide open, and I’m learning more and more how to reign them back in to focus on this one project.

I guess what it all boils down to today, folks, is that I’m trying to keep my thoughts as big as my dreams, and I hope that I can condense these large scale ideas down into one concise and beautifully written novel. As always…prayers welcomed, and I hope this day ends with a bigger word count for you!



Pin of the Day, April 10, 2015


This pin was inspired by my earlier blog about writing. Today I have been working on an adult fiction novel, and I’m very attached to the #amwriting frame of mind. It’s a good day when the words are flowing, and you can silence the critics in your head. We all stand in our own way sometimes.

Today I’ve got my blinders on! I’m full speed ahead and feeling like a girl on the verge of something great. Put your blinders on and grab the bull by the horns today.

God bless and CARPE DIEM!

Isn’t this what we all hope for…a life without regrets. For me, the hope of this statement is pushing me at full speed. To believe in oneself and the possibility of fulfilling a dream is a beautiful thing.

I’ve had many clients in the past that did not believe in dreaming. Their lives were hard, and they didn’t have many resources. This has been one of the saddest things I’ve experienced in all of my years in the mental health profession. Yes, there is abuse, and that is the worse. However, to live in this world without the belief in dreams is devastating to me.

If you have ever thought of doing something, but it seemed to out of reach or impossible, think about revisiting that idea again. If it hasn’t left you, then it won’t. Live your life without regrets. Give it your best today!

God bless you & CARPE DIEM!
