Masks We Hide Behind

How many masks do you have?  One, two, three...a hundred?  We each have a face for certain occasions. How many times have you gone somewhere or met someone and your heart wasn't in it?  You still managed to smile and laugh and talk all with the mask of wanting to be a part of what was going on but on the inside, you really want to be somewhere else, doing something you want to do.  We have the wife, mother, friend, and co-worker faces.  Each one is different and means different things to each of us. We wear them for the occasions.  Almost like dressing up for a cookout or a fancy ball.  It's a necessity for us.

As writers, we also wear masks.  Today, I am a wizard or a dragonseed. Wait, I'm a teenage girl who wants more from life. I'm a gay man seeking love after being hurt so bad from a previous lover.  All of these are masks, faces, entire lives I wear each and every day.  I don't care to wear some of the masks but the characters insist so I buck up and do what they desire.

I love Johnny Depp.  Why? Because he dons his masks in such a manner that his own personality is completely cloaked and only the character is present.

So, how many masks do you wear during the day?  Me? It's a lot.  Take my word for it.  A LOT.

If you want to check out how well my characters mask me, then grab a copy of one of my books.  The links are to the right on the side bar!  Hope you guys will check them out!

Hugs and Blessings,

Summer Solstice and Super Moon

Isn't it weird that both of these are like back to back this year?  I thought so.

I have always been intrigued by Stonehenge.  Always.  The fact that it was built thousands of years ago without the aid of modern technology amazes me.  But the people back then had a purpose behind the construction.  Their beliefs in their gods.

Magic is in the air!  Suppose to be tonight on the 21st but I've also seen the 23rd as the date too but it doesn't matter.

Sooooo, do you believe in the power 'Magic' of this time?

I suppose it's all in the eye of the beholder!

Hope everyone had a great summer Solstice and be sure and enjoy that super moon tonight!!!

P.S.  If you like magic, be sure and check out my books. Dragon Wish and Enchanted both have a ton of magic in them! Just click on the link on the right side bar.

Hugs and Blessings!

The Wind on the Balloon

Don't you wish you could be a balloon to float above the world free from worry?

The wind would gently blow you from place to place. But what happens when a storm hits?  What will the balloon do then?

Sometimes as writers, we allow our characters to float around wherever they want but what happens to the plot then?  Can you truly call it a plot?  Not really.  This is why most balloons have the ribbon attached to guide it in the proper direction it needs to go.

So how do you guide your balloons?  Gently or do you have to use more force cause they are stubborn?

Let me know!

Lost in the Vastness of the Ocean

Have you ever felt lost at sea yet still remain on dry land?  The feelings surround you and no matter which way you look there is nothing but the vastness of empty ocean around you.  You don't know which way to go.

Right now, I'm at that point.  I'm searching for the right direction yet no matter which way I look there is only the vastness of an unfriendly, empty ocean encircling me and quite honestly, I'm not sure what to do. So I'm floating in this sea, considering, speculating and hoping that I will find the strength to swim in a direction that will bring me to land, safe and sound.

Do you ever reach this point?  What do you do about it?  Please share in hopes it will help others.  Maybe even help me.

New Graphic Artist

In another couple of weeks I'm going to put out my new release, Micah's Heart. This is going to be an indie pub. The story is coming together nicely and I have gotten my new cover, which by the way, I love!

I have it in thanks to a great graphic artist, Kandie Dellie working in her new media business.  You can check out her portfolio here:  KanDel Media.

She's new and she works hard at what she does.  If you're looking for a graphic artist, be sure and check her  projects out.  You can also contact her on her website.

I'm pleased with this cover because she captured the yearning of both my main characters. It's also a very hot, sexy read so that was pretty much captured too!

Hugs and Blessings!
