Inside the mind of a writer...

My motto for 2012: Quality, not quantity

I am currently exploring the sensation of Sound...

Resolution - 19

I will enjoy the sun and let it provide me with vitamin D, not cancer.

Resolution - 18

I will treasure each unfolding leaf as the sun draws life out of the awakening hedgerow.

Resolution - 17

I will not let my husband look like a fool; I will not let him wear those awful long shorts that make men look effeminate. (Neither will I let him wear flipflops.)

Resolution - 16

I will make up my own mind on what I believe about everything. I won't be told what I can and can't believe.

Resolution - 15

I will be still and be part of the universe.

Resolution - 14

I will not believe in global warming / climate change because I am told to. I see no evidence for it at all. If the famous Chinese navigator decided to name Greenland, Greenland, then global cooling would appear to be happening. Or maybe we are in a large cycle we cannot hope to comprehend.

Resolution - 13

I will not believe what the government-media tells me; homeopathy is not chemistry, therefore it cannot be tested as chemicals are. Homeopathy is physics and should be recognised as such.

Resolution - 12

If I get tired and worn out, I will make time to rest and take in, rather than giving out when I have nothing left to give.

Resolution - 11

I will find something good in every day.

Resolution - 10

I will not let what other people think of me stop me writing. I know I am a good writer. If agents and publishers can't see it; that's their shortcoming, not mine!

Resolution - 9

I will accept the encouragement I receive from writers and readers and take it all to heart.

Resolution - 8

I will not be discouraged when my efforts, seemingly small and useless don't appear to do anything. From one small tomato seed that weighs nothing on my palms, to many fruits and a rich harvest.

Resolution - 7

I will not let frustration take-over. I will hold onto the peace deep inside me.

My brain needs a rest...

I've been rewriting book 3 of The Future this week and am in serious need of refreshment and inspiration! So I will be taking a break from blogging for a few weeks. I am planning to be back before Easter though.

Resolution - 6

I will make the most of today; it will never happen again.

Resolution - 5

Tomorrow may dawn dark but I will appreciate the light today and carry it with me into the night.

Monday, 4 April 2011

Resolution - 4

I will exist here and now and stop day-dreaming. (It wastes too much time).

Resolution - 3

I am not going to worry about tomorrow. Today is troublesome enough!

Resolution - 2

I will learn to "be".

Resolution - 1

Stress happens. It's part of life. I will learn to accept the things I cannot change.
