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)

and join me at the HVHM Winter Wellness Weekend Snow Day…

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?

Interesting Times…. (Tonight)

It’s not news that we are living in interesting times. The times we’re going through can be stressful and frightening for people. Stressful for most people. More stressful for those who are scan0002energetically sensitive. More stressful yet for psychic empaths

So I’m going to be talking about how to deal with these interesting times.

Tonight, on Wednesday (2/15/17), I’ll be appearing from 8-9 pm on the New Normal with Tchipakkan on http://liveparanormal.com/

We’ll be talking about simple and practical ways to deal with the stressful and jangled energy of the times we’re living in. How to find and keep your own center. How to keep from being overwhelmed by the jangled or negative energy around you. How to make a difference without becoming part of the negative energy yourself

Want to catch this interview, call in with your own questions or be part of the live chat happening during every show?

If you just want to listen, you can go to the above site, click the “Listen Live and Chat” listing under the “radio-listen/chat room” heading, and click “LISTEN HERE” next to “the New Normal”.

If you want to chat, you’ll need to go to the top of the home page on the extreme right and click “Join” to set up a personal account (it’s free but takes a few moments, so you might want to do this in advance)

There are provisions for listeners to phone in with questions, too.

And, if you can’t tune in at that time, Live Paranormal.com archives its shows for your listening at a time convenient to you.

Hope you can join me tonight  from 8-9 at the New Normal on liveparanormal.com

It’s Valentine’s Day…

… and across the country, people are giving cards to the objects of their affection.

But you’re a writer. Why not go a little further?

Instead of just signing your card “Love and kisses” why not use your writer-y skills to show your beloved that you care?

You could

  • think of the right words to tell them how much they mean to youIn expectation of miracle
  • tell a story about an experience you had together that touched your heart
  • write them a sonnet, or a haiku, or  a limerick or any other kind of poem to praise them to the skies and tell them that you love them

There’s lots of special writer-y ways to make your beloved feel special- so get your writer going and share those words of love

Happy Valentines Day!

(If you want more ideas, try A Writer’s Gift of Love)

Reading and Civilization, per Okri(Inspiration)

“Reading is an act of civilization; it’s one of the greatest acts of civilization because it takes the free raw material of the mind and builds castles of possibilities.”

Fantasy- the Classics (Catherine’s Book Shelf)

When you look at something, it’s good to not only see it as now, but to look back to its roots and see the foundations the whole thing is built on. Here’s five classic authors who helped to start the fantasy genre

J. R. R. Tolkien  best known for the Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings series

C.S. Lewis author of the Narnia series

Fritz Leiber  wrote the Fafhrd and the Grey Mouser series, which brought us  rascally sword and sorcery heroes/ anti-heroes and made fantasy fun

Robert E. Howard  best known for Conan the Barbarian, but also wrote Kull and a number of other fantasy stories

Edgar Rice Burroughs best known for Tarzan, but also wrote the Jon Carter of Mars series, the Pellucidar series and a number of other stories

We are all standing on the shoulders of those who came before us. Check out these great writers and see where we’ve come from
