Imagine the Possibilities

When creating space for your muse, imagine multiple possibilities of your art. Seek inspiration in stars, in conversations, and in stories. Most of all, publish your work everywhere there is a heart to listen. 

This week, I found flowers that bloomed in January and lights from the holidays that have yet to be stored.

Usually, we pack our moments away until the seasonal adjustment of consumption shifts our attention. Then we make our way around the holiday calendar, and the retailers get happier as we spend, spend, spend. I know we are stronger than our need to buy things. There are things we can make better when we find beauty in our memories and the possibilities for much more.

In other news, I wanted to say I’ve edited at least ten thousand words this week, but I won’t lie. My goal for the year is to stop breaking promises I make to myself. So, I’m spending the weekend on an editing binge. Book 2 of the Dorean Black Series is on the way. The edits are brutal, as they should be when you start your opening edits.

I’ve also been working on my Your Photo Your Story Project,  which is a docu-series about everyday people with stories to share. You can view the preliminary projects here.

I’ve got a few more on the way, but my main focus this year will be getting more writing done. Let me know if you like them (the mini-docs) on Twitter. #yourphotoyourstory Comments here, always seem to lead to Spambots.

I hope your muse is stirring. Gray, muggy weather usually helps me get my words out.

Have an amazing day!
