Getting there

I know it's been a little while since I wrote anything but I have some things that are going on in my life. First off I am going to a local author expo where I'll bring copies of my two novels and I'll be meeting other authors. That is in September so I'm pretty excited about that!

Second the sequel to my book From Within is scheduled for the fall. It's going very well and I'm very excited for this one. It went a completely direction which I find to be really interesting. Sometimes you just let your mind wander and I think it turned out really well.

That's basically all this happening in the writing world. I am currently working on a new novel that is sort of different then my first two. But more in line with my first one. I think I'm more into the mystery/thriller genre.

If you're a Goodreads follower you should definitely check me out. It's under Melissa Rose Bushèy. Thanks for reading and for the support!

Why not

Writing for a living is a struggle, well for me it is. I’m trying to do it for a living and well it’s not turning out very well. Writing takes structure and words and well thought out planning. You give your life to it and what do you get in return? Nothing really, I mean yeah the desire that you wrote this piece of art and you let everyone read it. Words that pour from your soul onto a piece of paper. Some people don’t even care about it. They look at it and go eh and that’s it. I’m hoping for more then that. 
Have you ever seen Girl Boss? I want that life. The life where you don’t care what people say, you’re going to do it anyway and your way. If writing makes me happy so be it, I want to be happy! I want to be my own boss, I want to write and sell my books. I want to wake up each morning knowing that somewhere in the world there is someone reading my book. That shit makes me happy and there is no one that can tell me otherwise. So thanks to everyone who purchased my novels and to those who read it. You are the best people in this world because you’re a passionate reader and you took the time out of your busy life to read the words that I wrote! I appreciate YOU! 
Don’t take shit from anyone! You do what you want to do!

Love it


I was so excited when I came home on Sunday and there was a box on my porch. I grabbed it and opened it and to my surprise there were my copies of my new book inside. I was like I have to take a picture of these. They look amazing! I can’t believe I wrote two novels already and working on the third. This journey makes me feel so blessed that I have this gift. It actually makes me feel like I finally have a purpose on this wonderful planet!

If you haven’t yet, please check out my new novel From Within on Amazon and Smashwords. I appreciate the love and support from everyone. I’m so happy I found my calling in life ❤️❤️

Proud

The weekend wasn’t that eventful, however I did audition at a theatre that’s local in my area. I was super nervous about it but I did it!! I sometimes amaze myself doing something like that. I just wanted to share that with everyone!

In other news I am nearly done my second novel and very excited about it! I can’t wait to share it with everyone! 

Hope everyone has a good rest of the weekend and if your somewhere on the other side of the world you’re probably in the middle of the night or it’s already Monday where you are. Enjoy your day/night.

Feeling Excited

I just wanted to write today about the new novel I’m working on. I’m super excited about this one and I am not giving it away. I feel more inspired this time around with writing. I feel like the words are just pouring out of me. I don’t know if anyone has ever experienced this before but I’m really loving it.

Today I wrote a ton of pages and I felt like I couldn’t stop, but I finally took a break. Lately writing for me has been hard, I was having little inspiration. Yesterday’s blog post I wrote of 9/11 and ever since then I guess I feel like I woke up. I needed something to kick me in the ass to get me motivated. I’m here and breathing and healthy and I need to live, if that means writing then so be it. I come to realize that writing is my thing, I love it. If I can express myself then I will do so. I never imagined that this is where I would be in my life, but things happen for a reason and that’s the path that you walk down. I will continue to do what I love to do.

I feel like I got a lot accomplished on this book and I feel really good about it, which is all that matters. If I wrote this book and I was dissatisfied then I would have to scrap it but I feel something inside me that is amazing. It’s like a flower blooming inside my chest, a world that opened up for me. That’s why I’m excited! Thanks to all you wonderful people for reading my blog and I hope you get the chance to read my first novel called Not Alone on Amazon. Just type in the search box my name Melissa Rose Bushey, I found that was a lot easier then putting in the title because there are apparently a lot of books called Not Alone. A Novel. 🙂

Much love everyone!

You Never Know..

You really never know what kind of day you’re going to have until you’re actually starting your day. I was in the process of having a horrible day because I spilled coffee all over my kitchen counter and floor today. However, instead of getting pissed about it and yelling, I actually started to laugh, because what is the point? There really isn’t a point to get all mad and get your blood pressure on the rise because of some stupid mistake you made.

But I have to tell you something, last night while I was sleeping, my lovely husband decided to do something that I’ve been wanting him to do for the longest time, and no it wasn’t sexual, it was actually moving a piece of exercise equipment. Well my amazing dog, Buddy,which he is literally scared of everything and he’s a bulldog so you would think he’s just a tough little man. He’s not! He’s actually quite the opposite, he’s a big baby. I’ll take the blame for that, I just baby him and a lot. I can’t help it, I love him so much. So yes, he’s really spoiled, he likes to lay on me and cuddle with me and he’s super heavy but he’s my lap dog. Wow I just totally went off on a rant about my dog haha. So anyway, back to last night, so my dog sees this piece of equipment and he just can’t stop barking. He’s like deathly afraid of it and it woke me up out of a sound sleep.I ran downstairs furious and just flipped out. I mean it wasn’t my husbands fault it was Buddy’s, but I was half asleep and I just couldn’t really tell what was going on, so I cursed out the hubby and I went back to bed. Today I woke up super tired and I felt bad about yelling last night. So this morning I wrote him a nice little text apologizing.

That was obviously before I spilled the coffee all over the counter and on the floor which I laughed about. I decided that today I was going to write some more of my new novel, and I just felt like today was going to be one of those days where I wouldn’t have any inspiration, but when I started to write I couldn’t stop. That was most definitely a good thing. What I take out of all of this is that you wake up and you feel like you’re going to have one of those horrible crappy days but it ends up being a good day. You never know.

Have a good day everyone!!

Yoga

So today I wanted to talk about yoga. It’s a wonderful thing yoga and it’s been around for many many years but didn’t seem to get popular until the 21st century.

I tried doing yoga about 5 years ago and I didn’t like it. I had a horrible experience and it just didn’t feel right to me. I then came across a new studio a little over a year ago. I decided to try it out with my mom and when I did, I loved it. It was just a brand new experience for me. From going in and the atmosphere surrounding me to the actual room where we did the yoga and it just made total sense to me and I was hooked immediately. The other yoga class I went to wasn’t even a yoga studio. It was at a park nature center and it was cold, dark, dirty, and the teacher just wasn’t that great. So I think that makes all the difference, finding the perfect studio and teacher.

Now I go to yoga a few times a week and do all kinds of yoga, depending on my mood. I tried meditation for the first time the other night and it was very nice. Very relaxing and definitely very helpful with taking my stress away.

I really recommend doing yoga, it really does help with stress and stretching feels so amazing. It can be a workout though depending on the kind of yoga you do. I did try Barre yoga a few times and that was so tough but it was a great workout, however, I was sore for a few days afterwards. I enjoy a class where I can relax and all my cares and stress just melt away.

So that’s my yoga talk for today. I hope everyone has an amazing day!
