This was not surprising, however, as Ms. Nilsson has always had a vividly active imagination, having not only one but two imaginary friends as child. Even as an adult, her characters come to life in her head and their personal stories often flow out faster than she can type. In just nine months, she had written two full-length manuscripts, including extensive research, and started a third.

However, as I write for fun and relaxation, I generally don't stress on the days when I am just not feeling the muse. I find that the feelings of lethargy pass relatively quickly, and I am soon back at it.(less)

Life is unpredictable and so many factors can influence its outcome, but when I write, I am in charge of the world inside my head. It is like playing an adult game of "play pretend", with no real consequences.(less)

Sometimes, Hometowns and Best Friends….

Sometimes, hometowns and best friends afford us the opportunity to obtain unique insight into people who are successful and well-known in their particular sphere.  I am no exception to this rule, as thanks to the lucky break of growing up in my small Nevada hometown, as well as being “besties” with my friend, Charmaine, since we were three years old, I have had the pleasure of meeting and knowi...

A Good Kind of Crazy by Majken Selinder Nilsson
1673
“I am not an advocate for frequent changes in laws and Constitutions. But laws and institutions must go hand in hand with the progress of the human mind. As that becomes more developed, more enlightened, as new discoveries are made, new truths discovered and manners and opinions change, with the change of circumstances, institutions must advance also to keep pace with the times. We might as well require a man to wear still the coat which fitted him when a boy as civilized society to remain ever under the regimen of their barbarous ancestors.”
Thomas Jefferson

Right now, I am up to my eyeballs in the third edit of my next release, called Western Skies.
