Don’t be just a poet

Speak of dreams

Only the world wishes for

Make the poem

Feel their pain & sorrow

But most of all… love

My Little Vacation from Life

So, over the last couple weeks I more-less disappeared because I was burnt out. I was burnt out from life all together and my nerve pain decided to sky rocket which tears my all body up from the inside out. So has I laid around binge watching the Sons of Anarchy I started to rethink and study myself and how I have been taking care of my writing, promoting and sales. I did a complete revaluation on every aspect and came to realize that I was giving out more than I was receiving. I was neglecting ME. I had forgotten to take care of me, my books, my blog, my promos, and myself as a mother and poet. I was spending the majority of my time retweeting and sharing other writers work than my own. I gave high recommendations on books, and only the true supporters and real friends turned around and gave back to me. They know who they are!! Thank you all for being there!

My concluding thoughts on my little vacation is, thank you to the ones that reached out and was concerned over me and my writing or the ones that took the time to listen when I reached out for support. No names will be listed here. You showed me love, tenderness and kindness during a very difficult time of need. I just want to say that I have your back always and if any of you ever need someone to talk to or help with a project…. I am here.

 

Last words: Friendship, Networking & Support are not one way streets, we all have to show our understanding, caring and support to every writer we choose to, and not for what we can get out of it but what we can give to them.

Reminder: Support a Indie Author or Poet today by showing them some love and writing a review or recommending their book/books to friends & family. And if a fellow writer reaches out and reviews your book, please be sure to ask how you can repay them. 

 

 

Book Review: Albert Flynn DeSilver

Blurb:

The best writers say their work seems to come from a source beyond the thinking mind. But how do we access that source? “We must first look inside ourselves and be willing to touch that raw emotional core at the heart of a deeper creativity,” writes Albert Flynn DeSilver. In Writing as a Path to Awakening, this renowned poet, writer, and teacher shows you how to use meditation to cultivate true depth in your own writing—so your words reveal layers of profound emotional insight and revelation that inspire and move your readers.

Writing calls on us to fully engage our mind’s cognitive powers, while meditation often asks us to let go of thinking and storytelling. Though these two practices may seem incompatible, Albert teaches that they can be powerfully complementary. With a mixture of engaging storytelling and practical exercises, Writing as a Path to Awakening invites you on a journey of growth and discovery—to enhance your writing through the practice of meditation while using the creative process to accelerate your spiritual evolution.

JAnn’s Book Review:

Albert is quoted  in writing, ” “We must first look inside ourselves and be willing to touch that raw emotional core at the heart of a deeper creativity,” This quote is so true for anyone who writes any genre. As writer’s we do seek within to find that raw material that is hidden from the world. This book will help any and all writer’s grow. It will help you discover things about you that you never knew existed before and you can physically feel your creativity grow while you work through the practical exercises in the book. I highly recommend this book for all levels of writers to read.

Writers Unite

Writers

Of all things we have
in common is words…

Words are the universe

To each who pen
magic of creativity
&
Bring forth the very soul
Of emotions

That drives the pen
With each twist of a plot
Or turn of a word

We all stand together
&
at the end of our career

As fighters of a culture
So rich
So pure
Of fiction, fantasy and poetry

That has enriched minds to every corner of the world

We must continue to unite

And throw our words to the winds and let our dreams begin!

We, the Writers

Indifferences
is what makes us human

In which we try to accept
The indifferences
in each other

Without these indifferences

Life would be boring!

And then
what shall we be doing?

The writers of the world

Wouldn't haven't anything special to say

Just nonsense
ramblings of rhymes & useless characters

Running around blindfolded

The moral of this poem is to grasp

the individuality of each other

&

Embrace our Indifferences

As a blessing & not a curse!
