Moon Phase Full
My mind is alight with possibilities today.
I woke before 5 this morning, brimming over with promotion ideas for my clients and me as well as writing ideas for the next books in the two trilogies I’m writing.
I must admit, my writing is at the forefront of my mind and heart.
It’s rather unsettling at times, to be writing Pathway to Freedom Broken and Healed: Book Two the Raw Truth then changing over to The Blended Lives Chronicles: Book One Sides of the Order.
Let’s think about it for a moment, in one manuscript – world, I’m writing my reality as it happened. In the other manuscript – world I’m writing the alternate universe.
I can’t imagine what I’d do without my proofreader – editor Brightside Author Jo Elizabeth Pinto by my side. She truly does, hear the voices in my head.
The story of the Blended Lives Chronicles is told by several points of view.
First, there is, Derrick Gibbous, Blended Lives Center Instructor and member of The Order.
There’s High Priestess Lady Laya MoonWalker, a Cloaked Figure and near the end an unnamed observer, watching on a computer monitor from afar.
So, when I suddenly change into a POV which doesn’t apply, Jo is on the lookout and when she finds a particularly confusing spot, she sends a note requesting a phone call.
This, I must say, is a refreshing change from what I experienced in the past.
We talk about passages, toss back and forth ideas, and make what was rough and unreadable into a trail leading to a beautifully told tale.
When Jo and I have worked our muses to the edge of total exhaustion, we hand the entire thing over to Dawn and Colleen of Two Pentacles Publishing and they will read, correct, polish, and shine.
If they’re unsure of something, they too will request a phone call and like me and Jo, Dawn, colleen and I will bat it back and forth until it’s smooth and reads like a bestseller.
Once they have it firmly in hand, I’ll send Jo the first draft of the Raw Truth and we will begin again.
This process is going to happen a lot, for starting in the new year, Dawn and colleen will also be editing and republishing all my current works under their brand.
I’m over the moon with excitement concerning my writing career. I cannot believe how far I’ve come since hitting the publishing button on Campbell’s Rambles: How a Seeing Eye Dog Retrieved My Life Copyright 2014.
I’m still proud of that book, although there are portions which make me cringe and moan, “Did I truly write that? And what’s more, did my editor allow it?”
I won’t change it though. Other than smoothing out a few rough edges here and there, that book will remain the same.
I’m excited. Did I say that already?
Well, onward and upward with the day.
I was flipping through meditation music today and found this station which plays music designed to inspire thought.
I’m amazed, because it really does quiet and focus my mind. I think it’s because it drowns out background noises from outside. Blue seems to like it too. I will leave it playing until I get tired of it. I love it when I make new discoveries early in the day.
Well, I’m off to read the mounds of email I have, deal with what needs dealing with and then…
WAHOO! Let WordPress Wednesday begin!
For now, the coffee is hot, the weather is not and that’s the way we like it.
May Harmony find You and Blessid Be.
