Spiders Webb!!!!!!

You know sometimes as an inexperienced author you can get bogged down, I really know that feeling!

It feels sticky, almost stuck! just like some insect trapped in glue, in a spiders webb, tooing and froing, trying to escape, one step forwards five steps back not really going anywhere, hanging in mid-air, mind and worry awash with thoughts, that are nothing to do with your writing, it all just gets in the way, and there you are like a little fly stuck in a spiders web!!

What to do?????? I hear you ask, I say the very same thing myself?

Well!!!! it’s now December, almost Christmas Day!!! its hectic, so much to do, Covid has changed this years Christmas for everyone, and we are all scurrying around like little ants trying to sort out and pretend we are all going to have a normal Christmas, but alas we are not, forget this year, and start again for the next, it’s all we can do, or is it???

Now then set yourself a little challenge, if I can do it, of course, so can you.

Sit down at your computer every day at an allotted time, and keep to it.

Write, anything!!!!!!!! anything that comes into your mind, scribble scrap, RUBBISH!!!! JUST DO IT!!!

Getting back into the rhythm of writing will bring you back into flow, and bring your mind back to the very important job at hand, and don’t Worry!!!!!!! it might take a week, 2 or even 3 weeks to get back your beautiful writing mojo, and trust me I’ve tried this and it works, you also have to BELIEVE IN YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! if you don’t believe in you then no one else will, and your mind will soon adjust and bring you back into the now.

And as for Christmas 2020 well!!!!!!! let start again in 2021, do what you can to keep you and yours safe, I look forward to seeing you all on the other side.

With love and blessings to you, and here’s to thousands of new and beautiful books!!!

Beautiful Daisy!!!

Well, they say an authors work is never done, or is it, I often ask myself. My head and mind is constantly whirling, this new era we are now living in is in it’s self History, and in twenty years time, we will be teaching this to our children, I really hope everyone who is reading this is safe and love to all of you and your families.

Well the Lockdown certainly got the flow going again, and my beautiful Daisy the Donkey will soon be here, the cover designed by Mirador is fantastic, thank you to all the elves there down in deep somerset that have achieved a little beauty, thank you!!

I am on a journey, it’s a soul journey, never really knowing what is going to happen each day, but you know what I wouldn’t change it for the world. I’m not rich, (yet!!!) I tell myself, but I am rich in all the new knowledge flowing into my brain, and at my age, it really hurts!! Daisy is a great book, I think, no I know I have done her justice, and she will soon be trotting onto the market, just like she did, trotting down the road to Gory in her shiny new shoes in all her glory!! he he, part of her opening poem, and the book is all about her life as a lovely working donkey, from the moment of her birth, talking about all the lovely things that happened in her life, her encounter with the famous Legend!! and the result, her lovely foal Dandy, the Gypsy trotting races and much much more!! so I hope you will enjoy the read, it’s well worth it.

You know,I have so many people say to me I could never write a book, well you know I always thought that, but look at me know, goodness there will be at least, seven books if not more, and you know absolutely everyone has a book in them, a story to tell, that someone somewhere will want to read, all you have to do is get started just like me. Feel free to contact, I love reading you emails, and if you have tried to contact before and not got an answer, try again, the site was hit with a hack, but I’m back now, perhaps I should start up a new and emerging author group, if you would like to be part of that let me know, I’m here waiting!!!

Sally from Birmingham, thank you so much for buying all three books!!!! goodness, thank you , and I am so glad it had reached out to you to make you realise that yes you too are physic!! well done you, it was lovely being with you, I look forward to hearing all about your new journey with the angels, and I have to say, they have been waiting an awful long time!!!

Love and blessings to you all, stay safe xxxx

Secret Demon 3

new secret demon 3 coverWhy is it that I struggle so hard to write in nice warm weather, it seems to slow me up, all I want to do is sit in the sunshine and feel a warm breeze around me, and watch the
wonderful swifts which at this time of year, here in Weston Super Mare, fill the sky like little screaming arrows. I have just sent off Book three to the publishers, all hell will let loose in a couple of weeks, and I will have to concentrate harder than ever to get it all completed and ready to be published, but I am tired, being pulled so many ways, so much to do at times I feel like my head is spinning, and I bet you authors out there reading this at some point have felt like this.

But you know the pull of the pen, never really goes away, there are dark slow times when a foggy brain just won’t come to life and worry sets in, anguish rises, doubts and stress fill our head as we constantly have to tell ourselves not to be silly, carry on, it will be ok, only for the beautiful river of the mind, to suddenly flow over the top of the gates which were holding it back, and deluge the brain, kickstarting the whole process off once again, bring beautiful new thoughts, ideas, characters, storylines and everything else that makes up your wonderful creation.

It sometimes feels like a constant circle, a waterwheel we walk on, in and out of darkness, tipping our toes in the water, only to be refreshed, given pure oxygen to continue this cycle which has become our life.

And its the same with me, I know I write better in the colder months of the year, warm weather is a struggle for me, so to actually get this new book sorted, edited and off to the publisher is a great relief, not without some help mind you!!! I never forget those who do so much for me.

And when this little episode is done, the next book is already edited, working on the new cover right now, but, I bet you anything, that one won’t go until the Autumn when the weather will turn chilly and my mind can refocus!!! well, all you have to do is keep looking in, and I will be able to let you all know, who’s taking bets!!!

Rachel from Bristol, it was so lovely meeting you, I am so glad our chat helped you come to terms with the loss of your adorable pet, you know he still continues to visit you, and yes you can still hear him at night trotting around your flat, of course, he is there in spirit watching over you, contact me anytime Blessings xxxxxnew secret demon 3 cover

Feeling the pull

well you know, being a writer, and a publican doesn’t actually run hand in hand, and I am just finding that out.

Its been nearly 5 months since I last sat and wrote a blog, my mind is whirling, I have so much spinning around me, and I am
most certainly juggling many many balls.

But you know!!!! even with a new business, and all the problems, tiring hours, worry and stress it brings, I am still itching to keep writing, so much so, I have kept my ever faithful A4 writing pad in my bag at all times, and through all the long stressful months, the urge to write has kept me sane. You see I have been thinking about another book, it would actually be a preceding book, which would introduce the first book I wrote, Secret Demon, but with all that’s been going on, I haven’t had the time to sit and write it, but!!!!!! what I have managed to do is set out the template, the beginning, and of course the end, which is inevitable, and the filling along the way. Now it might be all over the place, but I have worked cleverly this time, I have learned from my last books to BOOKMARK!!! and name what I have written.

The Pub is shut now for 6 weeks for a major refurbishment, and I have time now to sit and put this little beauty together, and!! may I say I haven’t wasted too much time, so I will be able to pick up the threads I have lovingly written and sew them all together.

All I am saying really is this!!!!! writing never ever leaves you, and don’t you let it, be ready for any minuscule thoughts, words, ideas and write them down, bookmark the book, or the chapter and date it, leave your trail so you can follow it easy, and be ready to start again, after all, if silly old me can do it, so can you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

At the time of writing this, I have had to remove a naughty spirit from our pub. The young man has been trapped there for some time, and was unhappy, dying early, and not being able to fulfil his dreams. His naughtiness including, smashing glasses, running around the pub showing himself and frightening people, and throwing items around. Hopefully he is finding peace in his new world with the people who love him. Bye Bye Trevorx Blessings to all
