That is what I love the most. And in doing so, if I can share our common humanity along the way, with its attendant joys, sorrows, and dilemmas, then that is a real bonus! (less)

Just because I've written a book, doesn't suddenly make me an expert. Stephen King's book 'On Writing' is probably the best book an 'aspiring writer' could read...this book stays in my heart and mind, always.

But trying to answer the question, I'd say you have to be determined, tenacious, and don't let anyone pop your bubble. Separate your right brain creativity from your left brain critic, you are both the master of your creativity and, if you are honest with yourself, your own best critic. Most of all, don't let anything interfere with the pleasure of writing, because this is the most important thing of all.(less)

So I’m looking forward to catching up with you soon and finding out what I’ve been missing.

Covid life restrictions were eased just over six weeks ago here in the Scotland, where all

“Discover the world of you, and with all your heart, be faithful to it.”
Lynne Fisher

“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”
Mahatma Gandhi

“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.”
Mahatma Gandhi

“To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.”
Oscar Wilde

“Whatever you do will be insignificant, but it is very important that you do it.”
Mahatma Gandhi

“Whatever you do in life will be insignificant. but it is very important that you do it because, You can't know; You can't ever really know the meaning of your life, and you don't need to. Just know that your life has a meaning. Every life has a meaning; whether it lasts one-hundred years or one-hundred seconds.Every life and every death changes the world in its own way. Gandhi knew this. He knew his life would mean something to someone, somewhere, somehow. And he knew with as much certainty that he could never know that meaning. He understood that enjoying life should be of much greater concern than understanding it. And so do I. You can't know. So don't take it for granted; but don't take it too seriously. Don't postpone what you want. Don't leave anything misunderstood. Make sure the people you care about know. Make sure they know how you really feel. Because just like that it could end.”
Will Fetters, Memoirs
