Welcome to Following the Whispers blog
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit. Hope you enjoy your stay. I blog here whenever I feel the need. This blog was created at the time my memoir came out, in February, 2009. Its motto was: creating a life of inner peace and self-acceptance from the depths of despair. Now, my focus is sharing this journey we call life.
“Only one thing is more frightening than speaking your truth, and that is not speaking it.” Naomi Wolf
“We are called human beings, not human doings.” Wes Nisker, Buddhist teacher
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs…(And) if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.” Theodore Roosevelt

Telling the Truth Tuesday: Part III rewrite update
Anyhow, the long and short of it is the main character needs to be more three dimensional. The two main relationships she has needs to be developed more. And there needs to be more conflict throughout. Easy peasy, right?
I do not feel bad about this. Surprised, yes? So am I. I wasn't paying attention to these things at this juncture. I was concerned totally with plot. I can see what this book is going to be when it is finished, and I know the steps I need to take to get it there. I am excited and can't wait to get back to writing. Just have to get through tomorrow and part of Wednesday, then I'm there.
