This novel is supposed to be great. It will change the young world as we know it and make everyone who reads it open to the possibilities in life that are right before their eyes, right? Oh no, wait that was Harry Potter. And I can think of a few people who despise those books. Not me. I loved them. They weren't difficult reads by any means, but the message is one that resonates in us all.
That is what I want. I want my book to resonate a feeling in all who read it. A feeling of confidence, and desire to achieve their potential. A feeling of self-love, the ability to see the good inside and use it. And a feeling of happiness, and the power to feel it even in the darkest hour. Is that so much to ask? No...but it sure puts the pressure on to form each sentence with that love in the back of my mind. With that confidence-which I don't presently have-bursting out from every page, and with that happiness oosing from each line. Of course to teach happiness I have to create darkness, and that has been the hardest task yet. I don't play war with my son, because I feel that by playing it we create a negative energy and with negative energy comes negative outcomes...sure it's just child's play, but I can't create war in my mind without the fear that I am spreading a negative energy. So therein lies my problem...creating the darkness to empower the light. I can do it, and I will...
Enough procrastination, on with the book. maybe I should gather some input from my readers...if I still have any...if you want to help me decide the first challenge for my heroine, leave a comment. If I get enough responses I'll post in the next blog a few options. :)
Just another day in the life of C A Stone...♥
Live in the rhythm of love...and share the bliss!
