I learned two things today (which I probably should have known before). Diversity is beautiful. Not just in nature but in humanity. I also learned about love. Love is generous and kind and everything else. Both diversity and love are rich. Not in money but in layers. Bonus lessons included foodies should have their cravings satisfied and that friendship knows no bounds. Physical ailments are nothing when friends are near. Courage is not just for warriors but for those facing fights for their lives because of debilitating illness.

Today was a travel day. My sister drove from Southern California to Las Vegas. We are doing this so we can attend the Star Trek Convention affectionally referred to as STLV or the Khan. This year though, it’s mitigated by the pandemic and the fact that Creation’s license with CBS for Star Trek rights ran out. There’s less people and less references to Star Trek copyrights. Still, I’m guessing we are going to soend lots of money on great Star Trek souvenirs. I love these conventions and can’t wait for our next convention (Comic Con Revolution). So, now you know what I’m doing. What do you like doing when you travel?

I’m at a loss of words. For a writer, that is like the worst possible moment. I want to write another entry to my book but I can't think of anything. If this is one of my potential struggles, I can still do it. I feel a little better, a little stronger. I will soldier on. Yesterday, was a tough day, I thought Iost my writing mentor after only a week. But I may be able to gain another one. A more experienced one. Wish me luck!

When you aren’t motivated what do you do? I found that the daily one hundred word exercises that I’ve been doing at the request of my writing mentor have been helping me to push through. Eventually, I’m hoping that this writing will lead to a true daily writing habit of really meaningful additions to my books, short stories, and poetry. I do feel great right now but I know I have a long way to go. Thanks, Greg and Beth.

I am finding myself very impatient with everything around me. Myself, others, the world, and my writing, of course. It has to be perfect...the first time. But that's not how it works. I have to remind myself that I need to be patient. I need to be patient with me and my growth. I need to make friends with myself. I need to go beyond the negative and embrace the positive of my life. This is the esoteric poetry of my life. I need to love that tapestry of my life and continue to weave the rest of it.

After a lengthy hiatus, I've come back to writing. I actually have a mentor, who is helping to keep me accountable. I didn't realize that during that pandemic, so many people wanted to become writers. I firmly believe that everyone has a story and that everyone wants to leave a legacy. But do they realize how hard it is to do it through writing? I didn't. But I know now, and with my mentor and others I hope to write that elusive book.

A week of writing is going on right now. An author who helps other authors (she calls herself a story midwife) named Traci Skuce is running a Clarity Challenge that began today and is fun. She gives prompts in the early morning and has a Q & A later at 11:00 am PST. On another front, ProWritingAid is running a Fantasy Writing Week with videos and all kinds of things. Both require sign-ups to get the links but they are both fun. Oh, and with the ProWritingAid, there is a a 40% coupon for signing up. Finally, Marion Roach Smith, a respected memoir writer and coach is starting a book club for her latest edition of her Memoir Project book. It starts tomorrow. Look her up on Instagram and sign up for the club. The book is very useful.

I haven't been very faithful. You probably have guessed. My blog misses me. (I think, or at least assume). I've been working through some online writing courses. It has made me see I have a long way to go to be a great writer. I suppose some authors are naturally uber-talented. Me, not so much. I realize I will have to work hard to have a chance. The one thing I have going for me is that I'm super competitive...and someone just challenged me to write my stories. In fact, it seems from her feedback, that I don't have the traits to be a writer. Big mistake. OR. she's super-smart. Nothing is going to make me work harder than that kind of challenge. Since that afternoon, I've written everyday for my first book, a biography of my mother. Actually, another author, explained that if you're not writing about a famous person, you're probably better off writing a memoir. I guess that makes my work a memoir/biography.(I'm still not willing to get rid of the biography category). This book is so personal, I'm having trouble approaching parts of it without pain. But I guess that's what a book like this should do at points. The story is inspirational and hopefully glorifies God and gives people hope. I did start to write it here but I received a rather negative review (1 star) because I started out with my grandfather because that is where my mom's Christian walk began. At least that is what I tell myself. I still have the story in my portfolio but only I can see it and I work on it in Microsoft Word and Scrivener. If you're interested in reading it, let me know, and I'll open it for you so you can see my progress. (It's not nearly done). Anyway, thanks for reading this and I wish you well on your writing journey. Come back soon.

I just heard Elton John's song title in my head as I sat down to write: Love Lies Bleeding, and it made me think how many other titles of songs, movies, television, have wonderful titles. I can think of Star Trek (the original series) having several. City on the Edge of Forever, A Piece of the Action, Amok Time, and Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, Empire Strikes Back. (Can you tell I love Science fiction?) Great Expectations, War and Peace and The Brothers Karamazov, A Tale of Two Cities, The Canterbury Tales. Crime and Punishment. What are your favorites?

I watched a webinar today that discussed the idea of taking steps to fulfilling your dreams. He said that I must be committed to meeting my goals, not interested in them. If I'm interested I'll use every excuse in order to avoid any action to get there. If I'm committed to them, every action and words will lead up to reaching them. It takes courage to act, to feel uncomfortable putting yourself out in order to reach your goals. That is my new goal for my writing and life in general. I'm interested in what others think of this.
