|Why I write...
Though I have "given it up" Had writers block (the worse case 2 years long-ugg!).
Still have issues having enough time ( I know-- we all get the same 24 hours in a day!) Hum so back to why I write--- because I love to! As hard,sometimes frustrating as it can be, I write to live & live to write! I enjoy reading others writing,as well. Theres still issues with grammer & that i use too many commas! I still write. I've been away from it for way too long. Sometimes things happen in our life we can't always forsee. We can't always plan for everything,yet it's good to have a contant---something we know we can do.
So I came here to writing.com 9 years ago,my 8 year old Grandaughter Sahalie,was still 5 months away from being born!
I wanted to be a writer,but didn't know how exactly.
A couple of years before I took a Writers Digest Non-fiction mail order class. When I wrote my first articles & sent them back, I felt so proud & so did my family. When I got feedback from the teacher,I didn't know how to handle the corrections part. my feelings were hurt (after all wasn't it just great?--no it wasn't-- the ideas were--but they needed work!
-to be continued.
Wow! this is the first time back since writing this! My life has changed in so many ways(Sounds like the lyrics from a Beatles song,but so true)
Up until a couple of weeks ago,was helping to raise 2 of my Grand-kids,Sahalie 9 & Dominic now 3,he has High functioning Autism & I had started a blog hoping to learn & share with it. Life turns on a dime & all of a sudden your starting a new life again & it's all for the best,though not easy. It's better to learn from the past,yet not live in it. Plan for the future yet enjoy the present time.
Sometimes it's hard enough to live in the moment & not let some of them drive ya nuts!
Life is one big test,no matter what you may believe or As John Lennon wrote" whatever gets you through the night!" As long as you are doing something to improve yourself & the others on this planet that are trying to do that as well,not to harm but help in whatever way we can.
Yeah the worlds a big mess,nothing new there,yet it can also get better.....
So I'm making this public,what good is having a talent,if it can't be used for others. To make laugh,think or whatever.some folks don't want to "be confused with the facts" I learned that as a young adult,when I was with the Children of God,in the 70's(long story to be told in time.)
Now I'm getting back here & working on my novel The vortex. At some point will share the first chapter & other tidbits from writing I started many years ago. some are just notes,but in time will be a chain of my own device to lift others up,It is my hope at any rate!
I'm happy to be near my oldest Daughter & Grandson,after us living in other parts of the country.
Yes life turns on a dime & sometimes it turns in the right direction!!
So welcome to my world/DL Page/dddreamcat/Diane Fertig, As they say whats' in a name?
Be well & happy,can't wait to get back to my review groups & folks I have made friends with! There are some sweet souls on this site!
ta ta for now!
11-3-13 Wow does time fly... So many things happened in between the last entry & today. It is always mass storms,every time I try to do my writing work. I start many projects,yet don't have the time or luxury,to finish. Then I had negative folks around,making me feel worthless,many times. I lost friendships & family bonds because of all this nasty crap,that others caused. I am thankful,to be living with my real Children & grand kids. I have banished anyone who wishes to cause harm to my family or to me... So Mote it Be ,So bless it be. Harm no-one is the whole of the true laws of fate.
Soon to come,my own version of "Chapel Perilous" Or better still,"meet you on the level,maybe see ya on the plane! To each there own,so get it. Some don't. Some maybe will... Some maybe won't.
The sword of reason. The Serpent and the rainbow,was a really good film...
