First–a shout out to Cheryl Van Eck. Get better! We’re thinking of you!
Happy Birthday, Kyra! I love you so much.
#1 From Me:
Thank goodness! Natalie, my Russian bride, has agreed to marry me. And if say no, well, I still have the right to have an affair because of this handy bit of wisdom that comes to my email almost every day: Life is short. Have an affair! Whew! I’d thought there were other reasons to live life to the fullest.
#2 From Brenda Bensch:
Have you ever had a really moving incident happen where you got information, or answers to questions you didn’t even know you had? Or reassurance you were making the right move. Has your “intuition” ever kicked into overdrive when you needed it most? I mean something so profound that many would refer to it as a “spiritual” experience.
I have a few friends for whom this happens with great regularity. One of them is a friend who, along with her husband, has adopted several handicapped or challenged children over the years. There is no doubt in my mind that SOMETHING out there acts in her behalf. She uses it as a guide and a reassurance that she has, indeed, chosen—or is about to choose—the right path.
If you have had something like that, you know what I mean.
What about your characters? Are you writing a book wherein a “spiritual” experience could bring more profound meaning to your story? Are you writing a sci-fi or fantasy where intuition could kick in so powerfully that your character is profoundly impacted?
Can you put that “feeling” into words? Can you imagine the impact that would have on your readers?
#3 From Me: Sorry I was gone so long. I’m trying to win Ann Dee’s newest book. Yippee!
Ann Dee and I are writing a book together.
It’s all over the place.
But, let me tell you, Ann Dee is pretty darn funny.
Here’s how it happened–
We decided to write a funny book together.
Then we came up with this super dark dystopian (I DO hope we write that one. Will we, Ann Dee?).
Then Ann Dee started a new book.
And sent a chapter to me and then I read the chapter and thought for a long time.
A really long time.
Then I replied.
Then she replied.
Then I replied.
You get the picture.
If you could write a book with anyone, who would it be?
