Hi wonderful ones. Where do you get your inspiration for stories. Kelly has created a whole world inhabited by characters. I often have very vivid dreams that inform my stories, my life, and my art. Here’ a blog with a dream and the story it made. It doesn’t have the juicy details that make it into a story yet, but it’s the framework, and I’m curious whether saying “life kills you” is too extreme.
Oh, Sage……I sat down to my computer with the hectic rushed intent of “catching up on my emails” so I could then get to work on an upcoming speech, and the master class you’re joining on Wednesday. So I jumped on here, planning only to give it a minute. And that is not possible. From the first paragraph I was entranced, spellbound, and deliciously captured by a blog post that is far beyond just another blog post. I knew that to read further would make me push aside everything else I have to do today – and tomorrow. Yes, it would take that long for me to roll around in the beautiful language and the piece of art you have put here on this page. And I’m not blowing smoke. So I am sadly having to bookmark this for a day when I can give it the attention it truly deserves. So this post is just a precursor to one that will follow when time allows me the luxury. But for now, let me say this……….Poetry……pure perfect poetry….these words need more than a fleeting glance…more than a post to be read and buried. So while I am so excited you are putting it on a blog, where it will remain forever to bless the world. I secretly selfishly hope that you are collecting these treasures to publish and share. http://www.createspace.com is the platform that allows you to self publish with no cost, except for the copy of the proof, or any services you choose to buy. You can create, upload, have it bound, and then just buy a copy at their cost, to sell at yours. The writer no longer can hide behind the excuse of not having a publisher. Now I must go back to my job. Sigh. Though I hate to leave. But somebody’s got to pay the bills. 😉
