I am working diligently on putting the final touches on the sequel. I'm enjoying fine tuning the plot and smoothing out the ebb and flow of the pace. I hope to have it ready soon and up on Amazon by the end of February.
On a side note, I've been practicing keeping myself living in the 'now ', the present, which I found has helped with me not getting to caught up in the past and not stressing too much about the future. I've opened myself up to receiving positive energy and positive thoughts and through this process I have been able to shorten the time where any writers block has occurred. It has also allowed me to see past the pretty words I have put on the page and instead focus on the message I am trying to convey. It has helped me stay on point.
I have begun to meditate with my wife and afterwards I feel relaxed. Any stress I carried has melted away and my mind is clear. As I review what I have written, I freely accept that some random thoughts may have made it onto the page. I find my clarity of thought makes it easier to edit the random thoughts out. Focusing on the message, the subtle hints in the dialogue, the hidden messages in their actions allows the meaning to subtly reveal itself.
Prayer is when you talk to God; Meditation is when you listen to God. ~ Diana Robinson
I pray every day, for the lord god almighty's intercession. I ask for health, strength, and protection and I give my love and gratitude for all the blessing I have received, seen, unseen, unknown and unknown.
I meditate everyday, so that the answer to my prayers may be revealed to me.
Looking forward to February! Happy Valentine's Day!
