I Still Am An Author and Writer In Progress…Literary Ramblings and Random Thoughts While Writing My New Books During a Pandemic.


….
WELCOME EVERYONE,

“What strange and unusual times we are now living in during this pandemic of  Corona Virus. It’s like we all woke up one day and life had changed overnight and still feels like this is all a “bad dream”…

Just a few months ago, it was like life was another normal day. Then this virus began to spread like wildfire and out of control while devastating everything its path. Families heartbroken losing parents and grandparents. Young and old are contracting this cunning virus and who knows how many are walking around with it and don’t even know it. Hearing too many friends also losing a parent, or a loved one has it and battling to get better. I don’t think life as we knew it will ever be the same with no cure light at the end of the tunnel.

With that said, I have learned to not take life for granted. I am blessed we have been safe and healthy and feel a little guilty that I am taking this time to begin finishing my second book, and hopefully get my third book to the finish line.  Hopefully to be able to publish when this pandemic slows and we get back to some kind of new normal.

As around late February into mid-March, my business side of things began to get slow and seemed harder to get results for my authors, and I don’t like taking money if I can’t keep some sales and reviews coming in for them. I thought I’d take a break. It has never been this slow before in the year’s I have been book marketing and thought maybe it was time to finish my own projects and get the writing juices flowing to decrease some stress over this whole pandemic.

At times it is a little challenging to focus and have been trying to stay away from TV news, backed off social media, and stop reading all the spin and stories online a well. I just try to be ‘in the know’ of the health risk and if our cases are still rising here in my state of Arizona.  One thing that has kept me sane during the few months, well, two things actually.

The first is I had started journaling more since this pandemic continued to start spreading. As it began to spread and before I knew it, everyone began wearing masks, gloves, and my husband would come home to tell me another sanitizing story the have changed at his work. He works in an “essential workforce” yes, you guessed it, a large chain grocery store as he is a Seafood Manager and Meat Supervisor. My anxiety around this is he just turned 61-years-old and still working in the middle of an unknown, you can die from, this virus.

…..

85860

……
Well, he is a big boy who is allowed to make his own decisions and my husband is a “go-getter” and very healthy. So after a two-week furlough mandated by the meat union, he continued to work as they were becoming very short-handed. So I hold the household fort down with my three fur babies Mr. Boots, Miss Princess, and Old Simon. Needless to say, they have been getting loads of attention with brush-outs, nails trimmed, cat snacks, and ears cleaned too!

Second, my dear friend and fellow author who happens to be a fantastic life coach, Ms. Maureen Scanlon who has been coaching me by phone through a lot of my fears around this virus and many topics too! She has strong shoulders who knows how to put this CAT straight and get me on the right path to my life and long-term recovery. Everyone should hire her and at least for a couple of sessions. She puts life in prespective in uncertain times like these. I hope she knows how much I appreciate her and our friendship. I had shared with her about me still being a felon. Now, this time in life I am not proud of. But when you continue to use “addiction thinking” in the choices we make? We can still wind up a FELON.

AND? As I have been writing my second book. I have been revisiting this time when I was at the tail end of my gambling addiction and started my recovery path. I also shared some of this in my current book and memoir, ‘Addicted To Dimes’ about the time the police and sheriff came knocking on my door one evening around 4:15 PM. I was making dinner and my husband had not gotten home from work yet. We both had recovery counseling appointments that night after dinner and I was going to make the Gamblers Anonymous meeting after my appointment.

Well, God has a sense of humor and it was obvious he had other plans for me. I was arrested, handcuffed, and carted off to jail, while people outside watched the whole thing unfold. You’ll have to read my first book as I go in detail as to the WHY, HOW, and I wasn’t even gambling!! I was only there for a few hours as they fingerprinted me, took my mug shot, and then let me go. I had never had a run-in with the law before, LOL!, nor had I ever had a criminal record until then.

….

16 Mugshots Of Adorable Animals Gone Bad

……
So I have been writing this past week and this second book will be about more memoirs and the “Lighter Side to Recovery”…I have so many things to share since my first book came out back in 2013 and now that I have been maintaining long-term recovery, I can actually look back on some of the ridiculous things I did when beginning my recovery journey, dumb things while I was within my addiction to gambling and real advice on how to make that first year and beyond. And yes, some of it is funny.

Now, I am not saying addiction is funny, not at all. But 13+yrs in? There are some things that are from way back then, and if I can’t call out MY SHIT? Who will call out my shot? Might as well be me!! We should not take ourselves or life to seriously, even while maintaining recovery.

And in being honest and transparent, yes, I made the poor choice in 2006 to have stolen from someone. Yes, she pressed charges, and yes, I went to jail for a few hours. Yes, I took ownership and accountability for my actions. It had been the one and only time I had done anything remotely illegal. And yes, I accepted the punishment and did my community service, paid fees, court and probation fees. And LEARNED MANY LESSONS.

And I got say, there is another whole side to this as some is kind of funny. I also want to share all the amazing things that have haapened to me since my first book released! Most all by believing in a “power greater”…But you will have to wait and read all that in Book Two which will be the follow-up to “Addicted To Dimes: Confessions of a Liar and a Cheat”... I am still bouncing some book titles around for the book as well.

I shared with Maureen I was thinking of the title below and she said it was funny and that if she saw that title walking by a bunch of books in a store she would immediately buy the book!!  Would you? Let me know your thoughts in the comments!!

Even After The End Of A Rainbow? You Have To Take A Break For Some Solitude, Some Writing, and Some TLC…THEN? An Inspiring Message By Author, Tony Roberts.

>>>>
Even though I am blessed to be working from home for my business, many are having to be forced to do so due to this pandemic of COVID-19 …And being isolated as we are is not a normal way to live life. Look, I get that, but, if staying at home means that it could help save lives?  I would choose LIFE over making a BUCK. (Of course, just my own opinion)…

Today everyone is talking about “DO WE OPEN”? or DO WE STAY CLOSED?

The news media outlets are putting a spin on just about every piece of information about this pandemic when it comes out and I don’t know about you, but I am so tired of it. I see how it makes everyone on edge, moody, and I need a break from it all.

“Even After The End Of A Rainbow? You Have To Take A Break”

…..
stay-home-stay-safe-save-lives

/////
I write this because I am ready to take some time off.  Yes, “The Rainbow” is how I feel  being blessed to work from home and love doing what I do to help other authors, but after book marketing, promoting and consulting for many from October 2013 to now with no time off?  The time seems right to do so.

We already don’t watch much news or TV as it just raises my anxiety over this pandemic and since my work is done through some media, social media, and the internet, I see all the articles and heartbreaking stories of families losing loved ones from this virus. Then you have those who are screaming that they are not getting the financial help from the government, so businesses want to open and seem to not CARE that it could make this virus spread even more?

YUP, this Cat is ready for a Mental, Emotional, Well-Being Break!

A Burning Fire; A Wisp of Smoke

 

Writing, then, was a substitute for myself: if you don’t love me, love my writing & love me for my writing. It is also much more: a way of ordering and reordering the chaos of experience. ― Sylvia PlathThe Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath

 

I keep a daily journal of happenings in my life. Some of these things emerge in my public writing. Literary quotes. Character sketches. Story outlines. You will also find less assuming material in my journals. Financial profiles. Schedules. Contact information. To call these daily journals is generous at best. Sometimes weeks go by without a single entry. Then I’ll go on a binge and nearly fill a book in a week.

If my journal could speak in those gaps, it would cry out in anguish, wail in sorrow, moan in despair. But the pages are blank. Like my mind. Unborn words. Aborted sentences. Silent stories. Flannery O’Connor once said,

I write to discover what I know.

…..
When I don’t write, I can’t think. This is one reason I’ve found such delight in chatting. I write much better than I talk. It’s not that I can be more impressive, but more authentic. There is a direct vein from my fingers to my heart that pumps life into my words which represent me better than what comes out of my mouth.

I have never been one to keep a private diary. On the contrary, I am eager to be read, for people to like what I write, to be liked for what I write. I want people to find meaning in the way I string words together, knit sentence after sentence, stitch a story quilt that is not only beautiful, but will keep them warm in an often bitter cold world.

…..

A great fire burns within me, but no one stops to warm themselves at it, and passers-by only see a wisp of smoke.  ― Vincent van Gogh.

……
Writing is a blessing and a curse. I am blessed to work alone, on my own schedule. And sometimes I am cursed with loneliness. As I write, I stare at the blank screen, my fingers hovering over the keyboard, searching for something inspired to say. At times the words flow.  But not tonight. Tonight they are buried in a forest of wispy metaphors and burned-out analogies.

van Gogh’s analogy about the fire burning within works for me at least two levels. The fire is both the passion to create and the dangerous drive to destroy. Creativity sparks my lit desire to make sense of a nonsensical world. Even when no one finds warmth in its flames. Even if it is only viewed as a vaporous puff.

On another level, the fire is self-destructive. Moving with no clear path, ravishing my mind, slashing through my relationships, burning out my desire. No one stops to absorb my heat, contain my flames. They see little else than a faint, indistinct cloud.

It is a celebrated fact that van Gogh sold only one painting in his lifetime. Some see this as a testament to futility. Maybe he should have given up and become a house painter to better earn his keep. Some say this points to society’s failure to recognize genius. It is a tragic shame we only acknowledge an artist’s worth after his or her untimely death.

I instead choose to look at it from the perspective of Vincent’s patron, his brother Theo. Theo van Gogh was an art dealer who absolutely adored his older brother. Not only did he make it financially possible for Vincent to pursue the art of painting with his whole heart, Theo was also generous with his praise and encouragement for his brother to see to his health.

Vincent wrote many letters to Theo (see The Letters of Vincent van Gogh) expressing his views on art, nature, God, friendship. This work is a thick brush stroke of simple beauty, such as this line Vincent directed solely at Theo,

 

… money can be repaid, but not kindness such as yours.

….
Success such as van Gogh’s is not measured in receiving popular acclaim, but in the loving appreciation of one person. This makes all the difference in the world. It makes all the difference for the world.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

“I  first sensed a calling to be a writer at the age of nine when I composed my first poem, “Ode to My Pet Rock.”

I was born and raised in the Hoosier heartland just south of Indianapolis. I grew up worshiping high school basketball and once had the honor of playing in a televised “game of the week.”

I went to Hanover College (alma mater of both Mike Pence and Woody Harrelson – go figure). After many detours into sex, drugs, and more folk rock than roll, I wound up at seminary and became a pastor. It was then that symptoms of depression and mania culminated in a psychotic episode that became pivotal in my life, for better and for worse.

After graduating from Hanover, I obtained an Master of Divinity degree from Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary. While there, I did ministry assignments at a state hospital for persons with developmental disabilities, as well as at a women’s prison, and a inner-city hospital.

I served two decades as a solo pastor. I then shifted to writing, speaking, and leading small groups. In March of 2014, I published my spiritual memoir, Delight in Disorder: Ministry, Madness, Mission. Having served in pastoral ministry and gone mad, it’s now my mission to bridge the gap between faith communities and the mental health world.

I now live in Columbus, Indiana, with supportive family and faithful friends who keep me honest and encourage me to be who God created me to be. My greatest earthly delights are my four children and two grandchildren, with one more on the way. “The soul is healed by being with children.” (Fyodor Dostoyevsky) Book is available on Amazon …

NOW A SPECIAL MESSAGE FROM Maureen and her FURRY BABIES

How “My Dog is More Enlightened Than I Am”…During Quarantine

From A FURRY BABY:

…..

  1. If my dog mommy wants to take lots of naps, that’s fine with me, it’s what I do all day in many different places
  2. If mommy wants to binge-watch that big box with pictures on it, I love to snuggle so let’s do this!
  3. When mommy and dog daddy take me for my 10th walk of the day to get outside, I still get excited because there’s lots of new smells every-time!
  4. When I get another treat for being such a good boy/girl, I joyfully take it even if I’m full and may need to eat mommy’s grass to feel better
  5. As mom starts yet another project, I will be curious and get right in the middle so she knows I support her creativity
  6. When mommy goes potty, I will be sure to keep her company and watch like she does for me
  7. If mommy wants to dress me up in the silly outfits, I will let her because she tells me I’m soooooo pretty
  8. Now that I get baths so often, I’ll be sure to shake off water real good so mommy can cool off with me
  9. I will take out every toy in my box so mommy can pick out her favorite too
  10. I will go where she goes, rest when she rests, and try to bring smiles and laughter every day because..that’s my purpose and I’m so enlightened!!

“My name is Debra Morgan. I was born in Colorado and now live in Oregon. I am  55, married have 2 children, a daughter, and a son and 6 grandchildren. I am a Fibromyalgia survivor and I do not use that word lightly knowing that people I know and love now or have died from this insidious disease are reasons enough for me.

I was diagnosed with CFS in 1994 and Fibromyalgia along with IC in 2005. This diagnosis came because of the beginning of severe pain and other issues.  I am writing a book on my life with Fibro hoping that it will help reach people and help them to do what I do and live with fibro on their own terms. I now advocate and I support other people going through this by sharing what I learned and the skills and knowledge in surviving and even thriving despite living with Fibromyalgia.”

…..
Deb and I met through another mutual friend of ours and we love and began network together on “The Recovery Side of Things” and love to banter on social media with one another but we are serious about our ‘Recovery and we are Warriors’ as we have maintained recovery from addiction long-term. Who says you can’t have fun living life maintaining recovery? Deb and I “Live Life Fully” no matter what health challenges we face and what I love about her! Especially when we joke about getting older and getting more memory loss!! LOL.

I was so happy and proud when Deb told me she was chosen along with 12 other women from interviews K.C. had done with many women to write a chapter about what she has had to overcome, as each author shares and have written what they have had to endure and overcome in their lives. It is an inspirational, encouraging, and empowering read as these women share in each chapter.

Now, Deb and I both enjoy blogging and she has given us a preview of a new blog post she has up now on her blog called Deb-Spot.  I have shared some of her new blog-post at the bottom for those of you who may suffer or have Fibro or mental health challenges. I encourage you to visit her blog and read the whole post. Deb has a way of writing about her feelings and thoughts of her challenges so eloquently.

Here is more about the new book soon to release and can be pre-ordered now and sent when released through Barnes and Noble Pre-orders for Simply Amazing Women!

ABOUT THE BOOK: “Simply Amazing Women”

Life After Heartbreak: 13 inspiring examples to encourage and inspire you

Simply Amazing Women continues celebrity radio host K. C. Armstrong’s theme of human resiliency. Each of his13 interviews showcases a woman who courageously faced severe challenges and ultimately used the experience for the benefit of others. It’s not just about being a survivor; it’s about surviving to ease the path of people facing their own life challenges: addiction, discrimination, poverty, violence, and more.

Armstrong (formerly of the Howard Stern Show) uses his own background of self-destruction and poor choices to weave together excerpts of aired interviews taken from his WMAP Radio station. The diverse chapters and Armstrong’s commentary offer examples of hope, compassion, and forgiveness. Armstrong himself has turned his life around and has dedicated his remaining years to encouraging others to make whatever adjustments are necessary to obtain their own redemption, understanding, and inner peace. The upbeat message is one of belief in one’s own power to handle whatever life brings-with dignity and resolve.

Following his best-seller Simply Amazing, Special Author’s Edition (2019) Simply Amazing Women is published to celebrate and honor our mothers and grandmothers: women of strength, passion, and wisdom.

Bipolar Disorder Whispers Of The Depressed Mind


….
I started this blog post when COVID-19 was dropped into the world’s life and we Americans began to feel it in a painful way. The thoughts of what goes through my mind as someone who has Bipolar Disorder continues to change each and every day and more often during this time of stress and extreme sadness.

As it does on a daily basis by mind never stops talking or remembering songs or coming up with something else I need to do. I wish that I could get my mind to just shut up for a minute. When depressive circumstances are present the noise in my head begins to sound like a low whisper, never leaving, never slowing but as if a prayer of some sort it quiets as it changes and saddens.

…..

…..

In depression, no amount of cheerleading, self -help books, or inspirational sticky notes on the bathroom mirror can overcome the power of its grasp. I feel as though I am drowning, and no one is throwing me a life preserver, but I have no idea that there are none, and I better remember how to swim real quick.

 

“I will be stronger than my sadness.” ― Jasmine Warga
