I wasn’t working for a while and I was able to twitter and youtube and write down all I wanted to write – I finished a novel that I have been on and off working on for TWENTY years and now I am back to working outside the home and while I love the job, I am back to unintentionally ignoring my website and all things creative. It is true – it’s one thing or another. You have to give 100 percent to really make it. I know I could make it as a writer- a published, well known writer if I had the time. Time is so limited and I am so fearful that I will never get out what I want to get out into the world. I want to leave my mark just like everyone else but life is getting in the way. I am going to do my best to keep up on this website. For now though I feel another novel inside of me that I have to get out.
That being said,
Right now I am reading “Life or Death” by Michael Robotham who is not only an excellent writer but he writes certain passages that really hits home for me. This is paraphrasing but something to the affect that “I wish I could look at life like that from above and backwards so that everything could be put in perspective.”
I feel like that sometime like why is this or that happening and then you find out why at a later time. That’s why it’s good to not get too upset by things (outside of a child dying – that is one thing that never makes any sense to me and is just horrible through and through) beyond that – everything, the everyday bullshit we deal with – it’s small potatoes and we should always think like that.
Back to Life after Death. A man who did about 15/20 years in prison is set to get out on such and such a date only to escape the DAY BEFORE his release. Why? And what will happen to the 7 million dollars he supposedly has hidden. Great cat and mouse thriller with a lot of life teaching passages in between.
I’m halfway through it – and wish I could read as much as I wanted to I’d finish it today!
