I actually am an idea hoarder and my brain is swimming with too many plots, characters, and settings. My writing gets slowed down because I have trouble focusing. When I can't get my ideas to flow and be organized, I close my laptop and do some sort of activity, like running, folding laundry, walking the dog, or going to the gym. If I'm really stuck because of brain clutter, I scrub our household toilets. This is what I do when I get really stressed. (less)

D.S. Lucas liked a quote
Tar Baby by Toni Morrison
“At some point in life the world's beauty becomes enough. You don't need to photograph, paint or even remember it. It is enough. No record of it needs to be kept and you don't need someone to share it with or tell it to. When that happens — that letting go — you let go because you can.”
Toni Morrison

“You should write because you love the shape of stories and sentences and the creation of different words on a page. Writing comes from reading, and reading is the finest teacher of how to write.”
Annie Proulx
The Pencil Sharpener by D.S. Lucas
"The Pencil Sharpener has a very clever premise: that a widow could return to her former home and request of the new owner the return of a fixture left behind. The approach, the visit, and the getaway provide the vehicle for a stream of conscious r..." Read more of this review »

D.S. Lucas answered Goodreads's question: D.S. Lucas
Everyday inspires me with something to add to my blog, fiction, or writing ideas. I look at the world with writer's eyes, observing the details, motives, and movements of the world and its inhabitants, characters, and spirits.
The Pencil Sharpener by D.S. Lucas
"Short whimsical story told in first person. It took me a while to figure out the point of the story, but it was sweet in the end with some funnies throughout. The pets were hilarious."

“Our starting point is always wrong. Instead of beginning with ourselves, we always want to change others first and ourselves last. If everyone were to begin first with themselves, then there would be peace all around!”
Ana Smiljanic, Our Thoughts Determine Our Lives: the Life and Teachings of Elder Thaddeus of Vitovnica

Thaddeus of Vitovnica
“Our life depends on the kind of thoughts we nurture. If our thoughts are peaceful, calm, meek, and kind, then that is what our life is like. If our attention is turned to the circumstances in which we live, we are drawn into a whirlpool of thoughts and can have neither peace nor tranquility.”
