Celebrate Endings & Prepare for What’s Next
May 29, 2014
Hello my friends!
My newsletter service is glitching so I’m sharing my newsletter here!
Here we focus on creating fiction and sharing it with the world, because when we travel into a novel, we can come back home to ourselves.
I’m enjoying the blue skies and cool winds here on the San Francisco Bay Area coast. Okay, I’m about 20 miles as the crow flies from the coast. I’m aching for a visit to the ocean. Ocean Beach, maybe, or a beach in Marin County. Soon, I’ll go. Maybe in celebration of my birthday coming up in a few weeks.
In writing news, I published my paranormal romance, called Parisian Amour: A novella in the Magical Tales of Romance & Adventure series. You can see it here on Amazon and my shout out about it on my Facebook page ! I celebrated by taking the night off and catching up on one of my favorite TV shows, Arrow, on the CW. Guilty pleasure!
I’m already prepping my next paranormal romance novella. This one will be set in Amiens, France, and will involve a labyrinth, the myth of the Green Man, and 2 people who want to ignore the power of love. Silly people! I love building a new story, but also need to recognize and celebrate my accomplishments.
Here’s to juicy endings and celebrations and delicious beginnings!
Thank you for reading and connecting with me!
I really appreciate everyone’s replies to me about my reveal about my hands — being born with hands (and toes) that are different. See my Instagram feed here if you missed that.
As I’ve mentioned for the few last weeks, I’m working on creating video shares/rants about how I really feel and think about all those years of hiding and dealing with people’s attitudes toward me for being different.
I’m committed to creating 2 more videos this week. My plan is that when I have 7-10 videos in total, I’ll drip them out weekly on my Youtube channel here. You can subscribe there or just take a look at some informational videos on book marketing I created a few years ago.
I’m not quite ready to share my video rant/shares yet.
I’m at the edge, you know … at the edge of a cliff. I desire to share, and yet the fear of falling into the unknown of what will come out of my mouth scares me. It’s a rich space. I’m leaning into it. The anticipation is building, like salivating for a good meal.
I’m holding myself gently, ever so gently, as this part of me comes out.
Food for thought: What are you on the edge of sharing that’s scary and delicious at the same time? And are you holding yourself gently during the process?

Is this you?
◊ You love writing, but you feel stuck in the process. That’s frustrating. You want to call it writer’s block, but that doesn’t feel good.
◊ You want the writing process to feel easier and would like to bring more ease to your creative process.
◊ You feel that what’s in your way of writing has nothing to do with writing and you’d like to make some changes, but have no idea where to begin.
◊ You know the pain of never being able to find your “home” within your creative work, but you so desire to find your way home again.
