If you’ve followed my adventures here or elsewhere, you know that I’m fascinated by manifestation work.

And so, because our crazy activity level has dropped off for awhile and Starwolf is going to be off at a con for a good amount of the weekend, I’m going to devote my weekend to some manifestation practices.

Specifically, the “act as if” technique, which says that, if you want to achieve a goal, you figure out how someone who has achieved that goal would talk and act and think, and what they would do, and as much as is possible, start doing those things yourself.

Some people call this the “fake it til you make it” technique. I don’t much care for that name- it puts a negative spin both on having dreams and on trying to achieve them. I prefer to think of this as “act as if”. I get to try on a new role or skill, and play at it until it’s comfortable and til I attract it to me full time.

Now I, as you may know, am a writer. I’m a good writer but I’d like to be a better and more successful writer. Not so much for the money (although that’s a nice thing too), but more for having more people read my books, being able to reach and help more people that way, and doing well enough with my books that I could afford to write full time

That would be a lovely thing.

And so, because my love will be doing other things and I have some big time editing to catch up on, I plan to “act as if” I was a very successful writer.

I have books on writing I’ll be reading. I have plans for special treats to eat throughout the weekend, like pasta and croissants and sushi. I have meditation tapes that will reinforce my writer skills. I’ll be taking breaks for little spa treatments to pamper and relax myself.

And I’ll be re-writing and editing like a house on fire. I hope to have my edit done by weekend’s end and ready to send out to my readers

If all goes as intended, I will get a lot of writing done and have a lovely weekend in the practice. And, energetically, I’ll move myself further along the path of putting my work out there so that it can help other people grow.

And what about you? What could you “act as if” to bring your dreams one step closer?..

Back on March 27 ( “…and an Idea Emerges From the Mists…and It Looks Like a Good One!...), I told you about how it’s been hard to figure out what this year’s book would be about.

How I had been playing with different ideas and waiting for the right one to come to me.

How I had finally had what seemed to be the right idea gradually appear, and how I was working with it to see if it was an idea with legs that could stay the course.

Update- I’ve been chugging along, writing with every spare moment, and we’re really making progress here. The book has resolved itself into approximately thirty chapters. I’ve completed twenty five of the rough draft and am chewing through chapter twenty six as we speak.

So, it looks like this is really going places.

Watch this space for more updates on my 2014 book coming up….

Usually, I start the year with some idea of what I’m going to be writing this year’s book about.

I usually get some kind of an idea or headup or omen or clue, sometime between the time the previous book comes out and the first few weeks of the new year.

  • I find the number of people having a specific question or challenge goes up.
  • I have more people talking about something online
  • I receive a random comment that jumps out at me (my favorite being “Oh. Are you writing about “A”? I thought you were writing a book about “B”  That was my cue for what the next book was gonna be.
  • or other things like that

This year has been a little different though. I’ve had lots of ideas and concepts, yes, but none that really jumped out and said “THIS! This is what you need to be writing about.” I’ve started on several ideas and found them all decent and worthy to write about but none had that “A-ha!” moment I usually get.

Until now…

Over the period of the last few days at the end of the week, I’ve had an idea gradually appear out of the mists, and I think that it’s the one I’m looking for. So I’m gonna flesh it out and start working on it and see if it lives up to its promise.

We’ll see how it goes…

ah, how sweet they are- those moments of serendipity…

Dependent on whether you’ve followed this blog for awhile or not, you may or may not know that I  try to put out a book a year (last year was extra special and I wrote two of them). You may or may not know that, this year, I started working on one topic and struggled with it.

I knew what I wanted to write about and what man of the points I wanted to cover were, but somehow it wasn’t coming together. It wouldn’t gel. The words didn’t sound like me.

I backed up over and over, taking a run at it again and again from different angles, but it just wouldn’t work, I’m sure that that book needs to be written, and that I will write it, but the time for it is evidently not yet.

And so I switched over to another topic – dream work. Writing about dream interpretation but also other ways to work with dreams to make your life better.

and it was going well, but I found myself questioning myself.

Had I given up too easily? Was this really the book I was supposed to be writing?

I’d been noticing more and more people coming to Starwolf and myself and asking about dreams and how to work with them, but I was still not quite sure.

And then, Sunday night came around…

We were heading back from a weekend working at the Connecticut Renaissance faire and were both feeling a little off. You know, a little scratchy throat, a little achy, a little tired- not sick, but at the point where we’d been outside in slightly chilly weather and were over tired and might come down with something if we didn’t take care of ourselves.

and so we stopped for takeout at a certain chain tex-mex restaurant, as tortilla soup is great for fending off a mini-cold. I placed our order and asked if we could have it as soon as possible, as I wanted to get home, eat and then work on my book.

“What are you reading” asked the waitress, and so I explained that actually it was a book I was writing on dream work

Her face lit up. She told me that a close friend of hers had died a year ago, and had been visiting her nightly in dreams ever since, and she had been looking for someone or something to give her more insight into this.

We talked for a bit, while our order was cooking, and she took my contact info so she could watch for the new book when it comes out.

And I knew then, that the book I’m working on now is the right book for the time, and it’s just what I need to be writing

ah, how sweet they are- those moments of serendipity…

This year, I had had to change horses in midstream in my writing (actually well past midstream.)

I had to change topics for this year’s book. Start again from scratch. Get reviewers and editing help online and share my work as I go along with them.

And writewritewrite.

Most of all, writewritewrite….

And here’s your update on that.

I’m within two chapters of completing my rough draft, and most of what is already written has gone through editing for second draft and then gone on to my reviewers and editor. I have some appendixes to polish, a glossary and an index to put together, the front pages and cover to create.

And I’m chugging right along.

My target is to have the final finished books in my hands for the Changing Times, Changing Worlds conference on the second weekend of November.

Will I make it? We’ll see…

But I’m heading in the right direction….

Hi folks

Writing on my next book is officially underway- but I’m looking for input from people around me to help make it a better book.

This book is going to be about Christian- pagan marriages- about the obstacles and challenges we face in this kind of mixed marriage, how you can avoid or overcome those pitfalls, and how to make a pagan-Christian marriage work.

When my husband Starwolf and I were first engaged, being bookish people, we looked for a book like this to give us some ideas about the territory we’d be travelling, but there was nothing out there at that time. I’ve kept looking over the years we’ve been married, and after almost one quarter of a century, there’s still not a book out on this subject. We’re  not the ultimate experts in this field, but we’ve been married for over 23 years, so we must be doing something right, and we’re hoping that our experience can make this adventure easier for those who are now on the same path.

And I’m looking for more input to help make this a better book.

Are you or have you been in a Christian- pagan  marriage? Would you be willing to be be interviewed by phone for input on what you found were challenges in this marriage and what were things that made your marriage work? If so, please email me at we_are_foresight@yahoo.com for more details.

Thanks for any help you can give me. If it makes this a better book, it’ll help more people and that’s good for everyone.

Back on January 22 (One Door Closes, Another Opens…), I talked about having two different thoughts about what book I would be writing in 2013; and on January 24th (One Door Closes, Another Opens…part II), I talked about one possible topic- a book on dreams and dream work.

Now it’s time to talk about the other topic. I’m thinking about writing a book about religiously mixed marriages and ways to make them work.

You may or may not know this, but my husband Starwolf is a neopagan Wiccan and I’m a Christian. When we first got engaged, the literature available on mixed religion marriages was mainly on two different kinds of Protestants. (If the author wanted to get edgy, they might actually address marriage between a Protestant and a Catholic…) There was not anything out there for marriages between a monotheist and a polytheist. Since we’re both book-ish people on spiritual paths, this wasn’t  helpful; and now that we’ve been married for over 23 years, when I look around and search the internet, I’m still not finding much available about this  .

It’s a good time for such a book. It’s an age where lots of people are turning to find their own spiritual paths and there are many more  faiths out there than there used to be.

When you’re married to a person of a different faith, there’s all of the skills you need to use to keep any relationship strong, such as communication, understanding, and respect, and then there’s all of the additional skills you need to support each other’s practices. There are also the many different aspects of dealing with family, friends and society as a mixed religion couple, especially when at least one of you follows a path that many folks don’t know about.

I’m thinking a book that prepares you for some of the unique challenges of being married to someone on a different path, and that gives you suggestions of how to deal with those challenges might be helpful for other folks  traveling this road.

What’s your take on this? Does this topic sound like one that you’d like to have me tackle in 2013?
