Stop paying for Internet and cable. Don't think that you have to see the whole story to begin writing. All you need is one line, one glimpse, and then trust that the muse will give you what comes next. I feel like stories are not within me, but rather are external, and pass through me. Don't refuse an assignment from the muse. Show the reader what the muse is screening in your head. Write what you see, even if it isn't what comes next in the story.(less)

But, yes, I am psyched, and for so many reasons it would take a novel to count them all. Galley copies arriving tomorrow, the book punished in January, the work in progress, the upcoming holiday to Santa Monica and Disneyland. I hope the muse is treating you well in the Phillipines!

Dear Harmony–


It is the evening of Sunday, May twentieth, two thousand eighteen. I am standing in the courtyard of The Hive, where we have had so many good times together, and am surrounded by your family, friends, and neighbors. After a warm day, the evening is fittingly beautiful for a celebration of your life.


But this is stating the obvious, or telling you something you already know. For I fe...

No Death, No Fear by Thich Nhat Hanh
"This is definitely not Thich Nhat Hanh's best book. One of my main gripes about his writing is how repetitious he is, and that's a big problem in this book.

I really do love the guy, so if you are new to his work and looking to read one of his boo..." Read more of this review »

What Is Real? by Adam  Becker

Excellent introduction. Dense, but good storytelling. Who knew I could come to feel that there are heroes and villains in quantum physics?

Interesting how much the ideas in this book parallel the quantum physics I am reading. Well done. Describes and conceptualizes the way I have been feeling after the passing of my nine year old daughter.

Echo's Sister by Paul   Mosier
"Powerful story of family and friendship."
Paul Mosier and 1 other person liked Jordan Henrichs's review of Echo's Sister:
Echo's Sister by Paul   Mosier
"Having two daughters, I have a soft spot for well written girls. I loved Echo's voice in this but as beautifully written as the book was, I couldn't escape the thought of how heartbreaking this had to be to write. "

Forget Me Not by Ellie Terry
Forget Me Not
by Ellie Terry (Goodreads Author)

Clear rating
A quick reading novel in verse about a girl with Tourette’s, surrounded by people who think it should remain a secret. From two points of view, with short entries that make it addictive, this little gem slayed me. Deeply affecting.

Hello Dawn! I didn't see this until now! I haven't poked around Goodreads much, but I am trying to do that more as part of my effort to be sufficiently authorish! I hope you enjoy Story Girl, and i hope you can make it to The Hive for the Train I Ride release on Friday, January 27, 2017! I am so looking forward to that!
