Rough Draft- Three Chapters Down…

Last week, I had an accident and hit the dresser hard with my forehead (Sometimes You Gotta Just Stop and Think…). The ensuing pain, swelling, bruising and sequestering until hands with laptop typing in nightthe edema in my eye went down enough gave me time to think. To focus. To reset my life

And I started writing again.

Well the swelling is down, the bruising gone (mostly) but I’m still working on my next book (working title “Living in Interesting Times). I’ve got the basic book structure laid out, have the first draft for three chapters written, and am continuing to move forwards in such open writing time as  I can make for myself.

I guess sometimes you do need a hit in the head to make you stop and pay attention…

How’s your writing going?

Sometimes You Gotta Just Stop and Think…

…and sometime the Universe will help you out with that…

In expectation of miracle2016 was a rough year for me, and 2017 was setting up to be challenging in different ways. Life speeding up. More stress factors. Familiar comforts stripped away. Trying to keep too many balls in the air.

In the midst of this, I’ve really wanted to write, but with more change, more stress, less energy and more health problems, and  increasing demands on my time, writing time kept getting cut down or squeezed out.

Frustrating,

and then, it happened…

On Monday, the phone rang while I was getting out of bed. In the process of running for the phone, I tripped and face planted  against the corner of an old family beureau, one where the wood had aged until it was hard as iron.

Bam!

Once my eyes stopped watering, I went off to the doctors with an enormous lump on my forehead to get checked out; frustrated because I’d planned to spend my day off writing, not sitting in a waiting room

Once I got home, my forehead and face began to turn a rainbow of vivid bruise-y colors and the swelling began to spread into my eyelid. Not only was it tender, but I found myself as the day progressed, unable to open my eye enough to drive safely.

At this point, ice became my friend. Ice and staying home because I wouldn’t be safe on the road.This continued for 4 days, until my eyelid deflated enough that I could open it with using my fingers or doing the Spock eyebrow thing.

And you know what? When you’re icing your face, there’s a lot of things that’ll have to wait. I had time to stop, and center, and breath, and think…

And write. I’m back to writing and I’ve made a good start on my next book.

Building new patterns or going back to old ones- either way, one big WHAM! broke me out of my current spiral and put my feet back on the path of writing.

There are worse reasons to get a hit in the head from the Universe….

Interesting Times…(Time Sensitive)

We are living in interesting times, and the times we are 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.

Two weeks from tonight, on Wednesday night (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 on 2/15/17 from 8-9 at the New Normal on liveparanormal.com

Read For Flavor (Writing Quick Tip)

Different genres have different patterns of storytelling. Different ways of saying things. Different types of story arcs.54f6a620-f2d8-4bdc-ad37-a97aa1a18800

Trying to write something but having a problem getting started or keeping the words flowing once you have started?

Try taking a break and reading things in the genre you’re writing.

Not for taking their work for your own. Rather for getting a feel for the rhythm and the flavor of the genre so you can coordinate your writing with the patterns common to that type of story

Take a break. Get a feel for how that genre sings

And then go back and write your own story in harmony with the genre
