What it means to be a writer

The best part of being a writer is to create your own reality in your own world using your own words.

During a flight where blessed to have been seated in First Class, the woman next to me verbally displays her displeasure at the temperature of the cabin. I can understand her reality. It was a bit warm.

What I do is to make every attempt to change up my thinking when an unpleasant situation arises.

“I am fine. I am cool (in more ways than one!). I am calm. I am collected. I am blessed.”

You don’t hear many people these days share how grateful they are to fly the friendly skies. However, you do not hear that from me. As a writer, I am forever grateful at the ever-producing fodder that my fellow passengers offer up.

I look out my window and see the mountain ranges of Pennsylvania—OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAthey are a beautiful deep green, with pointed peaks and valleys between them. I relish the beautiful sights at 27,000 feet below my ship; the wispy white clouds hanging over the mountains, following a path of their own making.

“…following a path of their own making.”

Do you have a path that you follow? Is it one of your own making or is it of someone else’s idea of what you should do? I’d love to hear about your experience, so please share below!

To your writing success,


New brain cells were created today!


Well, the site is finally coming together.

What do you think of the design? I’m not certain of the pink flowery spinners for the date holder; however, I really like everything else about it!

Today was a really productive day for me… I attribute that along with yesterday’s productivity success by being back in routine. Waking early, dressing and going for a walk, meditation upon return, only perusing email, and then settling in to write, create, or develop the most important item(s) for the day.

I declared to add at least one component daily to the website for this week and today I completed three: the opt-in form, the file for viewing or download, and this post. Pretty. Darn. Cool.

Even though I’m technically brilliant (really close to it anyway—ahem), new programs are a fun challenge to me. WordPress will be exceptionally so; however, if I can learn to navigate the behind-the-scenes of Linux operating system, I can conquer blogging programs.

Tomorrow will be another productive day: my stove will get fixed so I can cook and bake again!

I still have plug-ins to upload for commentators, so perhaps those will get activated tomorrow, too.

What new things are you trying? Did you know that when you learn new things that new brain cells are created? Pretty amazing stuff all around us.

To your success,

Not me!

Being in the creative mode stirs the adrenalin! I can hardly do my daily meditation I’m so antsy!

But alas, my dear friend. It is important to take time to bring that quiet reflection into your day. The vision you have for your life needs that daily nourishment.

So, if you have yet to get still to drink in the essence of your dreams today, do it right here, right now.

Until next time,

I’m ba-a-a-a-a-ack!

Oh my! I changed a setting and my first site vanished! I love learning new things, don’t you? 🙂 Rebuilding….
