(A bit of a re-blog from Aug, 2011 while I chill with Beau at hospital, trusting all will be well.)
Writing is a passion for me, one of my top five.
Writing a book and getting it published is a thrilling journey of discovery. Throughout this process I’ve learned more about myself than I had ever expected. I’ve gained new and greater understanding of who I am and who I want to be. Some of it has been new revelations, and some of it has been scary. Some of it has confirmed previously held beliefs while providing a peek in to my brain’s boudoir, (isn’t that fun?) and some of it has become new landscape where my soul can play. But always, the journey has been grand and thrilling.
When it comes to writing, romance, life or love; we can not avoid the challenges life presents us. We may try, but have you ever noticed how life’s challenges always wins that game of hide and seek. Sometimes it may end badly or not go the way we planned, but that’s the thing about reality, it rarely goes the way we imagine it. And often, that’s a good thing, because what shows up is so much more rich and challenging and interesting than our little selves could have ever imagined.
One novel published and another soon to be released – and I’m still very much an apprentice to this craft. Much like the sorcerer’s apprentice. And much like a little wand wielding woman, I’m trying to create magic from everyday life. It certainly has been a magic carpet ride, but that’s another fairy tale.
Believe it or not, my life is based on a true story. How about yours?
Enjoy always, T
Today’s romance blog is brought to you by the letter P.
The following are some P words that may (or may not) invoke Romance. You decide.
Pajamas: a loose fitting garment worn for sleeping or lounging. Lounging is good, lounging can be romantic. Hey big guy, come on over here and lounge with me for a while.
Pleasure and Pain: Sometimes it’s hard to tell one from the other. One man’s pleasure is another man’s pain – or vice versa. Just saying.
Paradise: a place of ideal beauty or loveliness – one would think this would be way romantic. Not so much for Adam and Eve. Unfortunately, it lost its seduction and well you know what happened then… see pleasure and pain above.
Paradox: a seemingly contradictory statement that may nonetheless be true. Kind of like; “I’d love you if you didn’t make me so mad.” OR “Love me or leave me, but make up your mind.” OR of course the all-time favorite: “It’s not you, it’s me.” No one ever says things like that, now do they??
Parallel: As in, the universe we often live in when we’re in LOVE, the big Love, if you know what I mean.
Paranormal: One of my favorite, since I write about it. Love and romance is definitely a paranormal experience. And let’s not leave out…
Paramour: A lover or one in an adulterous relationship. I’m just quoting the dictionary here. If it was up to me, I’d leave out the adulterous part. Oh wait, it is up to me. I’m leaving that part out.
Passion: Another one of my favorites. Maybe I should have started with this one. What’s a lover and romance without at least a little Passion? Yeah baby.
Play: as in play-date, playful, playmate, playground, my bed is a playground, his body is a wonderland. Gets one thinking?
So tell me, what are some of your favor romantic P words? Inquiring minds want to know.
Someday we’ll talk about the letters S or C. That should be interesting.
Keep a smile in your heart and -
Enjoy always, T
