No. I am not going to start quoting Martin Luther King, Jr (well I might), however, I too have a dream. I have fantasized for years now about being a public speaker (funny thing to fantasize about for a woman who’s pretty shy around people, particularly strangers). Yet, I couldn’t see speaking about my novels. After all, anyone can write fiction and what purpose does it serve to speak about fiction. No, I wanted to speak about something meaningful, helpful, insightful. The problem was, I hadn’t a clue what that something was. Then I began reading motivational books, Osteen, Covey, Long, Ruiz, Sharma. Top it off with a meeting with one of those writers and an idea struck. As a relationship therapist and blogger, I write motivational pieces all the time. What’s stopping me from writing about something that really helps and encourages me? After all, it might just help and encourage others.
SO… watch for some different writings from me in the near future (no, I’m not putting aside the sequel to Fatal Compulsions or my fourth novel as yet untitled; just putting them on the back burner for a while) and let me know what you think when I begin posting my ideas and trains of thought. Just to help me stay on the right track.
