Writing can be a grueling process, as we all know. The subject matter, content, and the overall quality of writing all suffer if we suffer mentally. Finding a happy place for meditation becomes a staple for anyone pursuing a writing career. For the longest time, working out was an excellent release for me and helpedContinue reading “Experience Nature’s Majesty to Clear Your Mind”

A Compassionate Quote, Kiss the Ground and Be Reunited

“You long to be reunited with your loved ones. It’s understandable. If you are in dire need of their touch, kiss the ground, for that is where they have returned.” When I wrote this dialogue for a female protagonist, Genevieve Riley, I immediately started going through my resources to see where I have heard itContinue reading “A Compassionate Quote, Kiss the Ground and Be Reunited”

A Quote, and a Peek Behind the Curtain of My Creative Process

As I continue my writing, I like to peruse my previous entries looking for potential advertising type of material. I found this little nugget of dialogue from a unique character with an interesting perspective: “I’d rather be using this wood to start a campfire or build a home, not use it to make a coffin.Continue reading “A Quote, and a Peek Behind the Curtain of My Creative Process”

What’s Your Motivation?

For the cursed town in my novel, a small brazen group formed to help fend off the antagonist. Every night, they would put themselves in danger to protect the civilians.

Break Free From The Shackles of Time

The Awesomely Artistic Autistic and The Whispers of The Heart

My oldest son is an autistic nine-year-old who is primarily non-vocal. He did something not too long ago that tugged on the heartstrings. He is considered highly functioning but still struggles to articulate his wants and needs. While we can get the occasional one-word responses from him, full sentences are far and few.       AContinue reading “The Awesomely Artistic Autistic and The Whispers of The Heart”

Surely You Jest!

Random thoughts sort of blog, short and sweet! Over the years, I’ve always bounced certain decisions off close friends or relatives of mine for insight and feedback. They all offered good advice, ultimately similar advice such as “what does your gut tell you to do?” and “just listen to the little person on your shoulder.”Continue reading “Surely You Jest!”
