Hello Y’all! Welcome!
My name is Burgess Taylor. What? You haven’t heard of me?
Well, that’s because I’m an aspiring author, which means I haven’t published yet. My novel is a work in progress.
What’s this blog about you ask…A little bit of this and a little bit of that, but mostly it’s about writing, life, inspiration, motivation, and whatever else comes to mind while I’m working on my novel and living life. I’m not quite sure of what genre my book falls into yet, but it’s definitely paranormal. And…
While I’m writing, no matter what I’m writing, I’m usually drinking coffee (or Dr. Pepper, or sweet iced tea, yes I’m from the South–South Carolina to be exact). I don’t really listen to music while I write because I’ll end up typing what I hear. Not a good thing when you find the lyrics to songs in your work-in-progress. My favorite authors of all time are: Stephen King, Dean Koontz, James Patterson, Vonnegut, Bradbury, Nora Roberts, John Sandford, Jim Butcher (his Dresden Files series), Sherrilyn Kenyon, Sue Grafton, Laurell K. Hamilton, and last but not least, C.S. Lewis and Tolkien. I’m an avid reader, an ameteur photographer, and a DIYer. My next big projects are: my writing space, our backyard, and our kitchen (I’m about to start adding DIY backsplash).
And where does all of this writing take place? Well as of right now my writing space is in the living room. It was alright at first, but it’s not working out so well. When anyone else is home and in the living room or kitchen I have trouble writing. I get distracted easily, thanks to having ADHD. To make it worse, I have a thing about people hovering right behind or beside me when I’m writing. I’m in the process of trying to figure out what to do about my writing space now, but this is my writing space for now.
That’s all for now, folks. I’m off to write a new chapter and drink my coffee before it gets cold. Stop by some time and join me for a virtual cup or just to say “Hey!”
