It’s almost ready. If all goes smoothly, my novel will be published this month of November (2022). I’m not good at selling my work, but I am especially proud of this book. It’s a very unusual plot.
Sometimes I forget
That I’m not the one
Others speak of
When they talk about “those kids.”
Over the past several months, I’ve been posting quotes from the author Paul Ferrini. There are poetic lines in his writing that move me deeply, as if they embrace my very soul. The first one that really touched me I posted back in 2018. His words have made an impact on my life, and I hoped they might help console other souls who come across my blog.
“Fairness happens voluntarily. It never happens by control. People have to be free to make mistakes and learn from them. Otherwise, the system is not open and growth is not possible.” ~ Paul Ferrini, I am the Door.
I’m trying to get back to a regular schedule of posting with an inspirational quote on Fridays and a philosophical post on or around Tuesday. In some of the upcoming posts, I’ll be discussing quotes from the person I quoted above. I’m a huge fan of his philosophy which combines psychology with spirituality. I used those aspects in my yet-to-be-published fictional story and quoted him on my blog several times.
Just that simple sentence I’ve written above has received chastisement from some dog-people. Why?
Let me see if I can explain and tie my experience into the quote I cited.
I’ve finally sent my manuscript off to publishers. Yipee!
I’m about to make a confession. I hope my blogging community will understand and stick together with me. I’ve grown so fond of your presence over the years.
Okay, ready? Deep breath.
