FICTION IS REALITY!

What we dream is an alternate reality we bring into being…

FICTION, REFLECTED IN A DREAM

Fiction is the only reality.

 

Which may not have found a soul yet to implant wonders for the future or wisdom of the past.

 

The stories must be told to a questing mind, not of this time and place, but of eternity.

 

The Universal spirit of belief, faith, inner knowing, precognition; destined to forever last

 

In the visions and dreams of consciousness … for infinity.

 

One day you will see self in another face, reflected in a looking glass

 

And grasp that FICTION is but another dimension, an extension

 

Of all the incarnations that simply must be.

 

You will scrutinize, then recognize, and only then will you finally, truly BELIEVE!

A Word on Book Reviews…

Here are some more of my thoughts on book reviews Do’s and Don’ts!

BowmanAuthor and Writer/Editor

I love almost all genres of books. An avid reader, writer, editor, I believe strongly in helping young writers. They are the future. That said, reviews are so important, but they must be honest. You’re not helping a friend or family member if you either over-rate or under-rate a book. Over-rating a book that needs work or editing prevents the author from developing his/her potential with a false sense of security. If you under-rate a book to make it sell less because you’ve written something in a similar genre, you aren’t helping your own book–you’re hurting the craft and industry of professional writers. Quality, clarity, accuracy, creativity are the four things I look for in a book I will treasure always. Even if the genre isn’t my cup-of-tea, good writing is always appreciated, always stands out. Make sure your research is solid and your plot believable. Writers are readers, and…

My special guest today is Deborah Bowman, who I’ve just recently met. Our friendship is new, but already I feel a kinship. I’m sure it’s because of our love of the paranormal and YA fiction. Funny how magic always seems to find its way to me. So, before we begin, let me share a bit about Deborah.

Author, Deborah A. Bowman

A New Year … A New Writing Project … Dedicated to Sharon Parker, What A Difference One Year Can Make!

writing
It isn’t a game, but the legacy of our lives and the history of humankind.

What does writing mean to you?

A daily chore, a journal of your thoughts and feelings, something new?

It doesn’t matter how the dream came to be

Or how long it’s been since you were able to see

That writing was an unfulfilled yearning.

Use it to move forward, researching and learning.

Look back at your past to discover your true purpose…

The one you thought you’d lost in forgetfulness.

Was there something you wanted to achieve?

But didn’t jot it down or ceased to believe…

In yourself and the power of your mind, your heart, your very soul.

Maybe it’s time to be driven and bold!

Put words to paper in chapter and verse.

Give as you were destined to conquer and reverse

Empty days and nights of longing to be heard

In the beauty and sanctity of your own original words.

Deborah A. Bowman–dedicated to Sharon Lee

A New Year Is Upon Us…

We can only hope we learn something as each year goes by.

We age, of course, look for answers, seek wisdom, work, strive…

To be happy, healthy, and whole.

We want what’s best for our family and friends, truth be told.

We look to the past to plan for the coming days,

Not knowing how things can change in a thousand ways.

We want things to get better; we want to achieve great dreams…

But we can’t see the future or rewrite the past, it seems.

So we’re left with hope, a positive outlook, and our beliefs

To bring us joy, accomplishment, relief.
