My mind usually comes up with the direction I need to move forward in a story or an idea for starting a new book while weeding. I find the flow in a story usually keeps be on track.(less)

Look at settings around you and start describing them in word, then see where they take you. When I started Loon Child, I was taking an online course at Barnes and Noble. My lesson that week was to look at my surroundings and start describing them so I did. I was at a family cabin in the Hayward area and started describing the moon's reflection on the lake, soon I was adding a fisherman and then a loon. The story quickly formed but I knew it was really in a rough form so I looked for help. I took a class at The Loft which helped give me guidance but my story was missing structure. I was fortunate to find an online teacher named Steve Alcorn who knew how to take an author step by step. There are many writing teachers out there and know you can find one that can understand your writing style and will help you develop yours.(less)

“Joys come from simple and natural things; mist over meadows, sunlight on leaves, the path of the moon over water. Even rain and wind and stormy clouds bring joy.”

“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot,
Nothing is going to get better. It's not.”

Wayne W. Dyer
“The greatest gift you were ever given is your imagination. Within it is the capacity to have all your wishes fulfilled. Look around you.
Everything that you can experience with your senses was once in someone's imagination.”
Dr.Wayne W. Dyer

Robert F. Kennedy
“We can move in that direction as a country, in greater polarization - black people amongst blacks, and white amongst whites, filled with hatred toward one another. Or we can make an effort, as Martin Luther King did, to understand and to comprehend, and replace that violence, that stain of bloodshed that has spread across our land, with an effort to understand, compassion and love.... What we need in the United States is not division; what we need in the United States is not hatred; what we need in the United States is not violence and lawlessness, but is love and wisdom, and compassion toward one another, and a feeling of justice toward those who still suffer within our country, whether they be white or whether they be black.”
Robert F. Kennedy

“There's no Black, White, Asian, or Latinos. The only "RACE" is the "HUMAN-RACE".”
Henry Johnson Jr

Albert Einstein
“A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”
Albert Einstein
