The closest I have ever come to it, is figuring out a way to make something I want to happen, happen. Connecting people or events, so forth. When that happens, I do not stress, I just leave it and write another part of the book that flows. It does not matter if that is the end or middle etc. I will just plug it in later. Or if I do not have another part of the story to write,I may stop writing and take a break, but it has never thankfully, been an issue for me.(less)

The first book, " In the Shadow of the Squirrel " actually came from listening to the Crows and Squirrels on my roof.
I live in a wooded area where there are a lot of little animals and I can hear them pushing little things around so it sounds like an animal soccer tournament. I imagine them playing up there kicking around the little stones like soccer balls. (less)

“Real love, you cowardly miscreant, is never intimidated, never frightened and is forever.”
Astrid Yrigollen, His Black Wings

“There is nothing that exists that is so great, that someone, somewhere, won't hate it.”
Astrid Yrigollen

“The most absurd thing of the whole affair was that we were never engaged. He just started showing up Sunday after Sunday and now expected to marry me. I never went out alone (or chaperoned) with him anywhere, I never even smiled at him. If that is all it takes to be engaged then I could have been married off to a hedgehog if it showed up every
Sunday.”
