Lesson # 14: Keep Creating More

My Dear Future Readers,

One lesson I learned was that no one likes a one hit wonder. Especially not in the creative fields. If you write books, write more. Don’t stop at one book. Keep going. No matter what you do whether it be writing, painting,  drawing, music…keep doing it.

“Is this your only book?” -Joe Bunting.

To be completely honest that question stunned me but I understood what he meant.  Without knowing it, Joe Bunting had taught me a very valuable lesson. Many years have passed, I am a member of the author community now in a way while waiting for my first book to come out and I am ready to share this lesson with you, my dear future readers.

Lesson # 14: Keep Creating More

My friend, Keith Kareem Williams has been writing books since 2004-present and I am inspired just by seeing him create more books than I have ever seen  any author create, except for maybe Danielle Steel. But Keith Kareem Williams is a very “real” author who I can talk to and learn from. So far, he has taught me that you need to turn that blank page and write no matter what. Find your own way to market your books or art. And don’t rely on trends. Create your own trends.

Which is also why I want to create more content for you and a place where you can read my new words. I want my readers to be able to see that I’m not just disappearing for days but that I’m working on new books for my future readers.

Also, I want to give a great big acknowledgement to Jessica McCrory who seems to be writing non-stop. Yes, I admire her. She writes beautiful romance novels. My friend, Isadora Sunday reminded me that everyone has their own pace. But I do hope that one day, I can write faster and also with better quality like these two beautiful authors.  But for now, I want my readers to know that I’m always trying to create more for them because if I was honest, I would not be an author without the people who read my blog and want to read my book. I am who I am because of you.

I hope you will enjoy my mew things when they come to this blog. SOON. I promise.

I look forward to hearing from you soon. I  thank you all for your infinite support.

Yours Truly,

A Romance Sparkles on the Dance Floor

My Dear Future  Readers,

In so many Disney and non-Disney movies a romance begins with a dance. But what is the allure of the dance floor, really?  Is it the sparkling lights? The music of the waltz? Or is it…..the most obvious of all–the partner you are dancing with?

Gentlemen in high society have always been rather “dashing” in their well-tailored suits. Ladies swoon over such gentlemen. If a gentleman asks you to dance, the lady must accept. It is the custom of high society that a dance must be accepted. The music starts and everyone else disappears. Imagine it. A romantic dance– just the two of you dancing and twirling to the music–a truly romantic setting.

Imagine the music, the partner you want to get to know better and then this dance that is a slow turn into romance itself. A dance that allows both of you to ask the questions that no other setting would allow.

“Would it be acceptable if I court you, milady?” the gentleman asked.

The lady blushed and smiled. “Of course, Sir.”

The gentleman smiled and twirled her. When they come back together, he asked, “So, do you come to balls such as this often?”

“Not often but I like them well enough,” the lady replied

 A dance and a pleasant conversation. Is that not the start of a beautiful love story? Or perhaps a continuation of it. Maybe, it’s the magic of the moment when that person’s sparkle just right in the dimness of the lights that you see the truth. Love is in the air. I know that you might not believe it but I can’t dance. OOPS, did I just say that?

I can’t dance.

Yes, I did. But, I love watching people dance. That’s why I think that adding a dance to a story is a good thing. It gives the story just a little more romance than it used to have.

And yes, a good-looking gentleman would help a lot.

I look forward to hearing from you soon. I thank you all for your infinite support.

Yours Truly,

You’re My Favorite Song……

And if  I heard you on the radio,

I ‘d never want to change a single note

It’s what I’m trying to say all day

You’re my favorite song

Would not we all like to hear those words directed at us?

The truth is that everyone would be more than happy if they heard these words. The meaning here is that you can not spend a day away from your loved one and can only think of him/her as your favorite “song” or voice.

Being passionately in love is really like that,you see that person and nothing else. His or her flaws don’t matter. When love is true, it just is that person. And no matter what he or she is still your favorite song. Heartfelt warmth and passionate feelings is what keeps love alive longer.

What do you think?
