The Dream Will Still Burn..

I write – not because I necessarily want to – but because I HAVE to. There’s this overwhelming need drawing me to tell stories and share them with the world. When I’m not writing, I’m thinking about writing and all the work I still have yet to accomplish. I’m determined to make my dreams see…

Words are the Doorway…

Words will only ever be words until you bravely take pen to paper and shed the weight of their existence upon your heart. Then, and only then, can the words transform into stories that change the world. Then, and only then, can the words come alive and take up substance and space, filling voids in…

Thank you, Rebecca Ross

A lot has happened since my last blog post almost a year ago… My divorce is almost finalized, my heart is healing and my writing is more inspired than it’s ever been. In fact…drum roll, please. I finished my book!!! It has about 86,000+ words and is headed for its sequel. It’s a huge accomplishment,…

You are more than…

I’m writing this post not to discourage anyone; however, I’m dealing with life’s trials and tribulations right now and the only way I find true healing is to write my feelings and breathe for a time. So here goes… I’m getting a divorce. I still hate that word. Feelings of pain, heartbreak and shame rush…

The Pool of Dreams

As I sit here in the silence, I hear my deepest thoughts and desires rushing through my mind like an unstoppable river flowing down, down, down into a vast pool of dreams.  As my thoughts press there weight upon the pool, I feel them sinking beneath the surface, almost fully submerged by the deep water.…

I’m Back 😀

Good evening lovely blog world! So I know I’ve been absent for at least a year. Life happens. But you can bet I’m not done writing. In fact, my large novel is finding it’s ending and transforming into far more  than I thought it could. The characters have told me what they want. They’ve led…

Stay the Course 

The easiest thing to do is quit, give up. But the right thing to do is to pursue, to conquer.  Wouldn’t you rather do the right thing? Who told you the route of pursuing your dreams was going to be as easy as learning to tie your shoes? Why do you think it should take…

Words 

Words press upon my mind, whisper to my soul, command my heart.  Words ever linger on the tip of my tongue.  Words fly in my face and form into magical sentences that take my breath away.  Words ignite the fire of my soul and quench my thirst for meaning. Words never fade. They come, they…

Inspired Again!!!

I’m inspired again! My writing is taking off in so many unexpected ways, and I’m feeling the inspiration flowing through me like never before.  I’ve started back up with my fantasy fiction novel. Im ready to tackle and finish it before the end of the year. Recently, I’ve been spending about five hours on it…

Always Wonder 

Never lose your wonder- that childlike sense that the world holds something magical, something more. Never let it fade, for it’s in that wonder where you’ll find your inspiration for the next big song, idea, book.  Let wonder broaden your mind, awaken your senses and lead you to believe. Let wonder be the mainstay of…
