Monday’s With Meleah

Okay, as most of you know, ever since I started working on my book, I’ve only been writing blog posts and visiting your blogs to read and comment on Monday’s. And that has been a pretty good system for me. With that being said, I’d like to wrap up the events of my life that happened last week, with this very short, packed with links, blog post.

1. I battled with Writers Block for at least seven days, until I found the cure.

2. I had a fabulous Mother’s Day with my beloved family.

3. My son turned 13-years-old and I am still so beside myself I can’t even talk about it!

4. My father provided much entertainment when he took on the challenge of Building A Waterfall In Our Backyard.

5. My Nephew MDW said,”WHOA!”Β  for the first time ever.

6. And My Nephew MDW has a new dance, that I like to call, Running In Place And Laughing

7. I feel confident that I will be able to resume and possibly even complete Chapter Nine this week.

8. I was reminded just how lucky I am to have such an amazing group of friends that I can always count on for encouragement and support.

9. I am really looking forward to whatever this new week may have in store for me.


10. Meleah thinks its almost weird to write her blog posts in the 1st person because she got really used to writing, and thinking and speaking, in the 3rd person. Meleah already thinks next weeks blog post will be done in the third person again.

  • FIRST!!!! I never get to comment first.

    I will send my edits and comments to your chapters 7 & 8 this week, k? Keep on writing!

    BTW, I haven’t written SHIT! I’ve been avoiding it and I have no idea why. Have a SUPER week!

  • Well it looks like we al have had a busy few days!

    keep on going sweetie!

  • laurie thinks she needs to call Meleah up because laurie needs some writer’s encouragment and wants Mel’s good luck dust to rub off. Laurie likes when Mel writes in first or second person, as long as she writes.

  • oops Laurie made a mistake again. There is no second person, is there, she ponders. Hmmm…Laurie will be confused all day long.

  • Meleah

    Random Chick:
    Ha! I just hit publish! Call it good timing!
    Im excited to get your edits. I hope you use the RIGHT Chapter 8 because I sent you like 10 different versions! And WHY are you NOT writing? Hmmm…..

    Things have been busy but great!

    Hurricane Laurie:
    Meleah thinks that Laurie is AWESOME.
    And Meleah wants Laurie to know that she can call Meleah ANYTIME she likes.

  • I think you will forever crack me up! Congrats on your son’s birthday…don’t it make you feel old. My daughter turned 16 in Jan and it hit me hard how much time flies when you’re raising kids!

    By the way M…I don’t get over here as often as I’d like, but just wanted to say when I do it’s always refreshing and uplifting for me. I really appreciate your stops by OSBP too. You are great!

  • Glad you found the cure, I didnt get to post a comment on that one but I read it πŸ™‚

    Glad you had a great weekend, Happy Mother’s day!

  • Meleah

    Heather OSB:
    Good Lord I do feel OLD! Im DREADING the day my son turns 16. Im going to need something stronger than a martini to get me through THAT DAY

    I think you’re pretty great too. And Im only here on Mondays so feel free to stop by whenever you have the time!

    Thank you darling!

  • Starting the ninth chapter? I am completely in awe!

  • Your Dad should have his own show. He is brilliant.
    I am in love with little MDW. Could he be any more adorable? That little dance he does is so cute along with his gorgeous little laugh. Such a little darling!!

  • Meleah

    Mama Zen


    A few people think my father needs his own reality TV show!
    MDW is CRAZY cute.

  • Happy Belated Mother’s Day Meleah! I’m sure you had a blast with you family!

  • sounds like everything’s rolling along nicely. a waterfall in your backyard? wow! how awesome! πŸ˜‰

  • Meleah

    You know it! And thank you!


    Thanks. You should see the video of my dad installing it!
    HA! Now that is comedy.

  • Arv

    Glad you had a good time mate… take care… cheers…

  • Hey, I told you to take your time and it would come.
    “If you write it, they will read”.
    Glad to hear you may have broken that block. Sometimes you need to step back and take a breather before you plow forward. Maybe you could just run in place and giggle for a while….

  • stuff like this makes me love facebook,,,,, cuz i feel like i already have the inside scoop!!!!

  • Happy Birthday to your son ! I know the feeling girlfriend, I have a twenty year old UGH

  • cmk

    Hey, if you think having a CHILD turn 13 is bad, think what it is like to have a GRANDCHILD turn 13!! That is what I’M facing this July!!!! :/

  • Meleah

    Im sofa king happy to be able to write again!



    The Girl:

    What? No way. you are way too young for that!


    I ant even go there!

  • Happy Belated Mother’s Day!


    Hope you had Happy Birthday JCH! πŸ™‚
    (from the second-person narrative point of view – wink)

  • Jay

    Red nail polish, huh? Well, it’s never been the colour for me, but maybe I should try it!

  • OMG, I watched the video of your son JCH and got all teary eyes. You’re such a great mom Meleah, taking the time to put together such a wonderful video.

    Then the video about your dad building a waterfall, oh that’s funny!

  • That was a great movie you did for your son’s birthday! I loved it as I’m, sure he did :O)

    I haven’t read your chapters yet. I need to allow the time to really read them and take them in. I will soon :O)

  • Meleah

    Thank you
    (@ the 2nd person)

    You HAVE to try it!

    I cried the whole time I made the movie for JCH! That’s why the editing is a little off. I was way too emotional to make it “perfect”. The movie about my dad = classic! He is crazy and I love him! xoxoxo

    Dont even worry about reading my chapters!
    I know you will when you have time!
    Im super glad you liked my movie to my son!

  • Speedcat was reading Meleah’s blog, and found himself pouring over every hyperlink. He wondered just what path the mouse click could take him … adventure? intrigue??
    Just then his coffee was done – so he left a huggan kiss and signed his name.

    Hug and a smootch!!
    SpeedyCat πŸ™‚

  • mmmm – GOOD coffee too !!!

    Happy week Meleah

  • Meleah

    Thanks Speedy!

  • dcr

    Am I the first to comment? πŸ˜‰

    Good luck with chapter nine! I’m still struggling with my outline!

  • I hope you are writing away!

  • Meleah

    Ugh. Outlines are tough to do and I usually never stick to them!

    I am!

  • I am sorry I still have not caught up on your chapters….but i WILL! there are not enuff hours in the day (or nite!) anymore….sigh. xoxo

  • HAHA. I love that you’re writing in 3rd person. So cute.

    Did I send my notes on 7 & 8 yet?

  • Keep on writing! You can do it!

  • Meleah

    Stop! Apologizing!

    Cute Ella:
    In a comment? or an email?
    *tries to remember*

    I am sweety! Im back on my game!

  • Richard is inspired to write his comments in the third person, especially since this is much more acceptable than being referred to in the third person while standing right next to the person who’s doing this. Richard is glad that Meleah has broken through her writer’s block, and is looking forward to reading Chapter 9.

    Richard says over and out for now.

  • I think its wonderful that you’re doing so well with your writing, honey. I’m going to stop by and read – probably tomorrow. I understand the once a week blog posts. That’s all I seem to be able to conjure up myself these days. xoxo

  • Meleah

    Richard W:

    Meleah thinks that Richard W is totally hilarious because his comment cracked her up. Meleah also REALLY appreciates RW’s never ending support and encouragement when it comes to all things related to her book. Meleah can’t wait to hear what he thinks about Chapter Nine!

    Once a week works for me so that I can stay focused on the book. Otherwise? I get too sucked into blogs – its bad enough I spend countless hours on facebook! But, just WAIT until you see this upcoming MONDAYS post! I think YOU will get a kick out of it!

  • Writing in the thrid person rules. Forget what others say. It’s addicting and fun.

  • Meleah

    Writing in the third person DOES rule!!
