Sparking Creativity ...

I wanted to start sharing the books that have and continue to inspire me ... I started reading WILD MIND by Natalie Goldberg over the Summer and I find myself going back to it ... To do the exercises I did not fully complete when I was reading the book. I love how she has you "try" different ways of writing ... Write about that Summer Vacation long ago, but make things up - Then go back and re-write it with only the truth ... Prompts like this spark my creativity!

She goes to tell us about "Monkey Mind", that little voice that holds us back from placing on the page what we truly want to write. I have enjoyed this book and I would recommend it to anyone seeking the inner tools to awaken your writing spirit!

What book have you enjoyed lately that has sparked a creative nerve in you?

WELCOME to 2013 ... 

A New Year has always meant wiping the slate clean and starting fresh ... To think ahead, without looking back ... To look at the things we can learn, read, create ... Or on the flip side, things we can let go of, work on, change etc ... 

I have much to be thankful for ... A great family, good friends, a warm house to arrive to, being greeted my two friendly cats, a cozy living room to relax in etc ... 

If I could ask for some prayers for my Dad - He has a few procedures to get through in the upcoming months ... We Love You!

I have much to look forward to ... My first book will be released at months end (with a little luck!), Turning a year older next month,  a Superbowl to watch, then Spring - Right around the corner ... 

Tell me what a New Year means to you ... What is happening in the upcoming months for you?
