The Do-Over


I am proud to say that today, I am working on my “DO-OVER.”  You know, where you take all the notes and summaries of books that you want to write and finally combine them into a conceivable semblance of some kind of order. Finally I have a plan!

I have struggled with the development of this idea for so long.  I dreamed about it, I even talked about it.  I just could not write about it!  Today it all seemed to fall into place.  Thanks to all of you and the support you show me daily.  Apparently, you propel my creativity!

So, keep at it!  Don’t give up.  Just keep writing!

About Colleen M. Chesebro

Colleen M. Chesebro is an American Novelist & Poet who loves writing paranormal fantasy and magical realism, cross-genre fiction, syllabic poetry, and creative nonfiction. She loves all things magical which may mean that she could be experiencing her second childhood—or not. That part of her life hasn’t been fully decided yet. A few years ago, a mystical experience led her to renew her passion for writing and storytelling. These days she resides in the fantasy realm of the Faery Writer where she writes the magical poetry and stories that the fairy nymphs whisper to her in her dreams. Colleen won the “Little and Laugh” Flash Fiction Contest sponsored by the Carrot Ranch Literary Community on November 2017, and in 2018, she won first place for the “Twisted Travel” category. Colleen lives in Arizona with her husband. When she is not writing, Colleen enjoys spending time with her husband. She also loves gardening, reading, and crocheting old-fashioned doilies into works of art. Learn more about Colleen on colleenchesebro.com.

  1. I’m sending you happy thoughts of support for success in bringing your dream to reality. 🙂

  2. Congratulations! That is truly awesome! 😀

  3. Good luck, Colleen. I think I made a mistake by not planning the novel I started writing in Sept 2012. It’s been sat untouched in the ‘work in progress’ folder for 12 months now and I hope to go back to it one day. However, blogging seems to have taken over my world recently and as I am enjoying it so much, I don’t seem to mind too much.

  4. I’m sure that your DO will be just fine, but good luck anyway. x

  5. Good luck with your DO 😉

  6. I can’t imagine writing a book. I have trouble completing a song, so I can only imagine the difficulty in such a large composition. Best of luck with it!!!!

    • That has been my struggle, seeing the whole picture. I can write a research paper or a short story and not have a problem. A book you have to plan. I feel wonderful just coming up with a great plot and basic characters to tell the story! Thanks 🙂
