What Do I Love About Writing?

18 Jun

What do I love about writing?

It’s the feeling of accomplishment that comes at the end of each section, compounded when the book somehow merges into an entity, and becomes itself.

It’s the glow of achievement when I hold each new edition in my hands, and peruse the brand new pages. The recognition that it’s mine: my words, my ideas; a part of me that, through the mysterious process of writing, has, almost by magic, materialized into something tangible.

It’s the cherished hope that, some day, many people throughout the universe may read and relate to my concepts, and decide that they want to seek out more.

It’s the potential for fulfillment of all my early promise that somehow was swept away by fate.

It’s the chance for  acceptance: of me.

The Charisma of Live Music

20 Nov

I danced last night to the rhythm of a band: one that specializes in the hits 1950’s to 1980’s. It was enthralling!

Why is it that we get so caught up in the excitement of the moment? Why do we forget our aches and pains, and become young again? Why do we all turn up our extroversion, and let go with the actions our souls prescribe?

That’s the magic of live music, the real here and now stuff that sets our hearts and minds aglow!

What Makes a Good Book?

17 Nov

What makes a good book? You know what I’m talking about: the type you can’t put down, that haunts you when you’re away, captivates your mind.

A real page turner is one that involves your emotions, and therein lies the secret. How can you care about the outcome if you don’t care about the people?

Isn’t great characterization the cornerstone of a good book?

Couple  this with a believable, engaging plot; write it with feeling; and, as if by magic, you’re on a winner!
