From the pen of a Dreamer!

Writing is still ongoing for next two books,
'The Seasons May Drift' and 'Gossamer Wings and Other Things' all is going slow but steady.

I sometimes wish that I could write my works the old fashioned way, with a quill and ink! I remember buying such when I was in my early teens. I liked parchment paper, quills, ink and the topping ,,, a wax stick and a seal.

I tried to work out some calligraphy, or fancy writing, as I called it back then, with wonder and awe. I would sit by candle light and write with my quill, and feel transported back through time!  I would write poetry, making it look like a royal letters patent, trimmed it, applied the wax ,a red ribbon and seal,  then I would roll it up and tie it with a ribbon! I felt happy with my little creation!

I also tea stained paper to make it look old and made up fantasy maps of  mysterious lands and islands. It is a good way to make up some stuff the characters in your book may have or may use, so it brings to life the character you are writing about for your book.

So get your imagination going! The world's your oyster with a pearl! :)


'If you can tell stories, create characters, devise incidents, and have sincerity and passion, it doesn't matter a damn how you write.' - Somerset Maugham

Writing through lifes difficulties is a very tough challange. Major things happen in ones life and yet we have to learn to muster ourselves and soldier on, regardless. It is taking time out and being patient with oneself and to leap over the stumbling blocks and escape back into the world of doing and being and generally living.

These days writing and photography, have been difficult, when the sparkle is missing, the sense of enthusiasm having been swept away along with encouragement and support. One has to fill the missing pieces, the missing parts, the missing sparkle and continue, continuing in a different yet same vein.

Life is certainly a learning process. Through heartbreak, pains and sadness, one must find a way to have a purpose, a goal, and a sparkle again, they alone are challenges in themselves to retrieve them back,  and to continue.

So no matter what, the human spirit always bounces back and carries on as best it can.

'Writing is the hardest work in the world. I have been a bricklayer and a truck driver, and I tell you -- as if you haven't been told a million times already -- that writing is harder. Lonelier. And nobler and more enriching!'.- Harlan Ellison
