I don't know that I've ever suffered from "writer's block." I suffer from paralyzing, self-doubting fear.

Fear of not being good enough or not being clear enough. Fear of never having the right thing to say or having nothing to say. Fear of wasting my time. Fear of wasting your time. Lots of fear.

I end up walking away from writing when the panic gets too big. Luckily, I have family and friends who are there for me, inspiring me with their own bravery, love, and talents.

That and candy. Never doubt the power of the Swedish Fish.(less)
Shannon Lee Alexander Thank you! I would love to come to France one day, but right now it isn't something I can do. I'll just have to send you virtual hugs and kisses! xoxo

NaNoWriMo 2017


I'm giving NaNoWriMo a try this year, working toward 50,000 words in a brand new story. It's day two and so far I feel pretty good, but I'm trying not to get ahead of myself because I still have 28 days to go (and 45,985 words still to write).

I'm not known for being a fast writer. I've been working on a story for a few years now and it's still not done. So this "write a first draft in thirty d Read more of this blog post »

“Scientifically, I know beginnings don't exist. The world is made of energy, which is neither created or destroyed. Everything she is was here before me. Everything she was will remain. Her existence touches both my past and my future at one point- infinity.
Lifelines aren't lines at all. They are more like circles.
Its safe to start anywhere and the story will curve its way back to the starting point. Eventually.
In other words, it doesn't matter where I begin. It doesn't change the end.”
Shannon Lee Alexander, Love and Other Unknown Variables

“Simply put: time is fluid. The faster your world spins out of control, the slower timer crawls. The more time you need, the less you're sure to get. It's all relative”
Shannon Lee Alexander, Love and Other Unknown Variables

“It doesn't take much hope to infect a person. Hope is worse than vampire venom. It takes hold and changes a person. Fast.”
Shannon Lee Alexander, Love and Other Unknown Variables
