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

Insecure Writer's Support Group - August - Research research research

Hello bloggyland,
Whew! So much happening in my life, but what is relevant here is that I am researching the novel whose idea was planted in my brain some 35 years ago. See...it's never too late. I never could have written this book then -- I'm not sure I can now -- but I'm going to enjoy the process of getting it out of my head and down on paper.
So, what's happening with all of you?
Blessings,
Karen

It was about thirty years before I attempted my first book, so it's possible! Good to hear from you Karen.

Sounds like you have a great plan. Books that demand to be written can't be messed with. hehehe

That's great that you are in the beginning stages of your new project and that you decided to pick it up again after all these years.

Lovely to hear that you have finally arrived at the moment when you can use this valued idea, good luck with it, I did just that after taking children to a special place for work trips, a place I loved, and eventually it became a story that had been with me for many years.

Hi Karen -- I'm glad you're writing again. I'm putting the final touches on another early 1800s novel of Illinois...just like a Western but east of the Mississippi. Taking my time and enjoying life.
