Last night, during a discussion with my oh-so-wise friend, Bryonna ( you can find her @ succulentpossibilities.com and she truly is intuitive...so much help making my book better). She suggested that I phone and ask the hosting company for help. I did that and the problem was so simple. All I needed to upload Google Chrome! Done...and here I am!
So, if you do not follow me on Facebook, or Instagram, where I am quite prolific, you may not know that I have been painting and writing away, even though I have been MIA here. I have been working on making a deck of 44 oracle/inspiration cards (which I am still smitten with) when I had the inspired idea to make a book out of them. It is NaNoWriMo month, after all (where many people across the globe commit to 2000 words a day for the month, and voila, by the end of November you have a book). I realized that I had a book sitting there with my cards! And those cards had even been edited by knliterary.com! I was gob-smacked! Are you beginning to see a pattern here for me? I have the answers right in front of me. I just have to remember to open my eyes! Oh and to ask for help.Yep, I need to do that. APPARENTLY, no one can read my mind.
My editor, Chandika, edited my cards, and I had just closed out my account with K. N. Literary, when I sent her a message telling her about my new idea, and she thought it was a great idea.
It is funny when you open your eyes, and step into the unknown, miracles begin to happen. It has been just over a year since I went to New York for the Hay House Writer's Workshop. Talk about open doors. If you have a chance to go to one of these events, especially if you dream of being a writer...do it! It was the best thing I ever did (hands down) for my art and writing. But, you do have to have the courage to step out of the small space you have crammed yourself into, and step into the middle of the big wide-open arena, though. In essence, you have to BELIEVE in yourself. Or at least be WILLING to make yourself uncomfortable, so you can begin to believe in yourself. The latter has been my path. I am definitely not without my own fair share of fear. If you cannot travel to attend one of these workshops you CAN do it online at Hay House Online Writer's Workshop.
I attended another Hay House event recently, this past October. This one was a worthiness retreat in Maui with Nancy Levin and Doreen Virtue. These two workshops have literally transformed me and my life.So, as soon as we returned home, I signed up for Nancy Levin's Jump Coaching. I wanted to keep up the momentum.
So here I sit, writing this blog, gloating over my book Lady and the Fox: A 44 Day Guided Journey Towards Liberating Our Inner Truth, that I just threw together (over a three year period of mass inspired writing and painting)...that I am madly in LOVE with. I submitted my manuscript (God I love that word!) to my editor, and I am overjoyed to say that she was very pleased. She told me that quite often people have to do a complete rewrite, and that I wouldn't have to do that (yes!!!). She said that my manuscript is well organized, and that I had not asked my reader to do anything that I was not willing to do. I share a lot of my most vulnerable stories:; stories that have led me to where I am today and I am ecstatic to be where I am.
I still have some darker feelings, I am not "there" yet....where ever there is? But I have so much joy in my life today that I never thought was possible. I got that joy by going through the darkness and learning to feel all my feelings, making friends of the ones I had long rejected, like 'anger.' and 'ego' (is ego a feeling? Yes, I think it is...it is fear).
Anyway, I will be popping in more regularly now that I have figured out my tech problems (thanks again dear Bryonna...you rock!). Thanks also to the lovely fellow at Bluehost for suggesting I upload Google Chrome again! Keep your eye out for my book. I am getting so close. Thank you, thank you, thank you! <3
Ta ta for now,
