Winter Wellness Weekend Returns (This Sunday)

This Sunday (March 5) is the replacement day for the Hudson Valley Holistic Market  Winter Wellness Weekend Feeling Energy at the Ramada Fishkill in Fishkill, NY that was cut short by the enormous snow storm. Lots of great vendors and readers, classes as part of your admission and a good time for all involved

I’ll be there as part of Foresight, doing readings and selling my books. I’ll be teaching “Clearing and Releasing Negative Programs”  which is a bunch of practical techniques for clearing out the beliefs that block us from having happy and successful lives.

13 Chapters Roughed Out

Full work week. Technical classes online for my  professional license. Family medical emergency and not feeling all that peppy myselfhands with laptop typing in night

and yet  I continue to slog along, working on the rough draft of “Living in Interesting Times”…

It is kinda interesting. I’d been having some significant entropy in my life in 2015 and 2016 and that had interfered with my writing. I’d start one book and then something would come up to make that book something not to work on right now. I ‘d start another and hit another roadblock

But now things are crazy and stressful and not ideal for concentrating on writing- but I’m still writing anyway

We shall have to see how it all comes out…

Conflict, per Roth (Inspiration)

“If you actually succeed in creating a utopia, you’ve created a world without conflict, in which everythingBurning candle is perfect. And if there’s no conflict, there are no stories worth telling – or reading! “

Winter Wellness Weekend Returns

Got wellness?

Recently, on February 11,  I attended the Hudson Valley Holistic Market  Winter Wellness Weekend Feeling Energy at the Ramada Fishkill in Fishkill, NY. Lots of great vendors and readers, classes as part of your admission and a good time for all involved

The event was supposed to extend over Feb 12 as well, but unfortunately, and incoming winter storm cut the event short and sent us scrambling for home

I’ve just received word that the second day has been rescheduled for Sunday, March 5th

I’ll be there as part of Foresight, doing readings and selling my books, and hopefully teaching (to be announced)

Rough Draft- Chapter 10 is a Wrap

hands with laptop typing in nightContinuing to plug along , roughing out the chapters for “Living in Interesting Times”. As previously noted, I started with a simpler outline but, as I went along, I found chapters that needed to be broken down into smaller chapters and additional points that needed their own chapters, leaving me in the curious position of writing like mad in order to run in place (more than a little reminiscent of Alice in Wonderland..)

well, the overall structure seems to have stabilized to a certain extent (knock wood) so I can make some progress and actually feel like I’m moving forwards

Current idea seems to call for 18 chapters- and I’ve just finished roughing out chapter 10 so I’m actually tentatively past the mid point. (Go me…..)

Hard work, but also a lot of fun watching this come out of the fog and into shape on the page.

So how’s your writing going?

Rough Draft- Seven Chapters In

well despite all the craziness this week, the writing  continues on “Living in Interesting Times”.  I’ve  got seven chapters roughed out and am working on the eighth, in between all the snow and politics and other things that keep popping up.

I’m also finding that, as I write, more chapters keep popping up that belong in this book. Chapters subdivide. New topics that need their own chapters to give more useful hands with laptop typing in nightinformation.

So the good news is this book is filling up with a lot more good stuff. and the mixed news is that, right now I am in the interesting position of running in place like mad to just keep up…

We’ll get there.

I also had the pleasure of doing the podcast that started the idea for this book this Wednesday past  [ Interesting Times…. (Tonight)  ]. Talk about your interesting times- the tech went out at the beginning so I was left with typing some info to the host thru FB messenger so she could repeat it online until they got the program back running again. More inspiration for the book…

and so we keep writing and planning and roughing and editing and we’ll get there in the end.

How’s your writing going?
