The excitement begins – come up with the ending or the beginning or maybe somewhere in between.
For me, I came up with the ending and a possible beginning. I have a sense of my main character and the difficulties he/ she experiences. Now to add the red herrings, the suspects, the conflicts, scenes…
For my dear readers who are interested – here is the title of the work in progress.
The Dream Unfolds…
What would your title be? Start writing – see where it leads.
A sensitive soul named Aileen (which means shining one) “accidently” discovers a room hidden behind one of the bookshelves in her favorite room – the library. Maybe it was meant to be! This room is a portal to other dimensions where she can be an invisible helper without absorbing any of the negative energy. And so it begins….
On the morning of her 16th birthday Aileen woke early and ran with her kitten to her favorite room – the library. Spying one of her birthday gift books that she liked to read again and again (and had worn out), she took it. Just then, a creaking sound……..
What’s this? A room behind the bookshelf. Aileen sensed nothing but peace and calm so had no fear to enter. Her sidekick kitten “kitty cat” (nicknamed KC) joined her. Breathtaking! All of her years and she never even knew this place existed. One area led to what looked like a cave made of amethyst; a stairwell leading down – she could hear water! Wow! An arbor of lavender was behind her (that must lead back to the library she thought). Aileen vowed then and there that she would tell no one of the room; but would return to it as often as she could.

Hi – this year I’ve decided to locate prompts that speak to me and write about them in posts. Today’s prompt started
“If I were invisible…” and came from http://writingexercises.co.uk/index.php
Here’s what I came up with:
If I were invisible, I’d listen in on what people say and anonymously try to help them. If I was able to help them or not, I would send them energy from the universe as a channel. It would be much easier to attend a party if I were invisible – I would not feel in any way constricted – I could just be myself. I may have to dream of wearing a cloak of invisibility, or being in a place that had a higher vibration that me, so I appeared invisible to the inhabitants. I would definitely go to the ocean and commune with the dolphins and sandpipers. I would walk slowly along the shore, aware of the gentle waves lapping at my heels, the sand squishing beneath my toes. Yes, to an introvert like me, being invisible sounds wonderful.
I hope everyone who reads this is blessed.
Check back again for another thought.
Hi readers – beginning today I am taking a journey. One that begins with silencing the inner critic once and for all. She has had the podium for long enough. Want to join me? Together we can do it. I will post my progress and what I found helpful regularly so check back. Here we go…
Today I read “if you wouldn’t say it to your best friend, don’t say it”. Wow! Yes, I think that one will go on a post it note to remind myself.
If you have joined me in this journey, I salute you. If you are already at the finish line, well done!
Come back tomorrow; the quote changes every day. Enjoy everyone; many blessings.
I recently saw a video put out by Power of Positivity. The words really helped me so I wanted to pass them along. They are:
If you’ve been told you’re too sensitive, this is for you…
- Expressing your emotions is your strength
- Loving and forgiving those who hurt you is your gift
- Dreaming and thinking deeply about life is your power to bring change.
- Feeling energy around you, emotions, and pain, means you’re very aware.
- You’re not crazy, naive, or broken. You’re normal.
- It’s an innate gift you were given, but you must protect yourself to stay strong.
- Limit time with people and situations that drain your energy.
- Make time for self care, nature, and solitude to recharge.
- Always remember, you don’t need to change or harden
- You’re purity makes you who you are
- Having a soft heart in a cruel world is courage, not weakness.

Hi dear readers – aside from all of you, I am grateful for
- Hot showers
- the patterns that the clouds make
- the inspirational messages I receive that I can share
- encouragement from loved ones
- for quiet
- for the wagging tail of my dog
- the purr of my cat
- for each breath.
Ouch! While reading about the sections of daily prayer today I was moved at the section on confession. Started out okay with loving each other, no problem there. Then it went on to say – And I have forgotten how much you value me. Dear Lord, help me remember.
Dear readers, if this strikes a cord with you, we just have to confess it; God is always ready to give us a second chance.
Have a blessed day!
I keep seeing this phrase today. It reminded me of a picture I put in my special folder which I have shared at the bottom of this post.
It is said that if you see hummingbirds you need to be gentle with yourself.
They are happy little birds, always humming 🙂
Hope you get as much enjoyment and encouragement from the photo below as I do. Have a wonderful day.
Here is the best way to figure out if you are on the right “path” or doing the right thing. If it feels light, it is the right way. Anything, hunches, ideas, menu choices, relationships, jobs….the right choice will feel lighter. Yesterday I made some changes to my routine and felt lighter after I had done it.
The key though, is never put yourself down for having to correct something in your life. Everything you do or have serves a purpose, we need to be gentle with ourselves and move on. Have a blessed day.
