A break from my usual blogs!! ….letting you know how my first book came about…….
We carry out our daily routines whilst who knows how many thoughts and ideas run through our minds. Some are good, some bad, and some exciting and, dare I say it, we dream of what we would like to do or like to become. So, back in 2007, I decided without any barriers or restrictions within my own mind, to explore my creativity, to allow freedom and an atmosphere around me where it’s okay to dream.
So I simply started to listen and imagine, thinking of ideas and turning them in to something that is tangible. Everything starts with an idea, then you write it down, then you see it, then you read it out loud and then, it becomes real. It’s my
journey within myself, that only I can take and understand, maybe giving small bits of it away in the odd conversation to just a few people; so I can hear and declare it to myself. I needed to be still……to see and hear the workings of who I am and what I wanted to do.
Only you will ever understand ‘you’ and know what it is you really want to do; but it must be for the right reason, a reason that is true to you, even if it is only for a season in your life. We’re all unique, not one of us better than the other, only we make the mistake of thinking that. There’s more to us than just defining ourselves by a job title or the size of our house, the car we drive, or the money we have.
I allowed myself the freedom to write and I found that creativity feeds creativity, as all the ideas in my mind developed into something real. The more ideas I have, the more that keep coming and more notebooks surround me as I store them up, so the more I’ll write.
Now tangible and real to the touch and to the eye is “Farrago: Ten Tall Tales.” WOW!!
I’m chasing my dreams and what feels right to me. I’ve tried my very best with my first book and have a real hope within me that you will enjoy what I have written.
In 2017, my novel ‘Undercurrent’ will be released. I’m excited and nervous and I suppose that’s natural. I will not stop doing what I feel is right for me, and that is to create and be different…….to be me…….who else can I be?
As this is still the Easy Blend, I thought I’d let you know what I’m listening to, today it’s Climbing Trees, ‘Middle’ a band from my hometown.
Until the next Easy Blend blog………..
Stay warm and fuzzy……..
