I often hear my friends complaining about waking up in the middle of the night and not being able to go back to sleep. I always tell them it is a blessing to wake up in the middle of the night. It is a secret mystical, magical time ladened with creativity. I find it’s the time my soul wants to express itself. So when I wake up, I always listen to what my soul has to say. I take pen and paper and I write.
Think of the love of your life. Whether first love, current love or someone or something you have loved at some time, then describe what that love felt or feels like. What about this loved one fills you with passion.
I invite you to join me: you’ll need pen and paper or a computer, a cup of tea, and a comfortable place to sit. Ask yourself what part of your story needs to be told today. The prompt is an invitation to let the words flow. Slowly read the prompt, whether fact or fiction, and write what needs to be written today. Feel free to change the prompt from first to third person, vice versa, or any other way.
What I love about him…
“He will teach you to live in this earthly world. He is good at it. You will teach him to fly in the other worlds. You will be good at that. He will be your partner, your friend, your lover, your mentor, your protector, your teacher, and all of this you will also be to him. His soul will grow because of you, and your soul will grow because of him.”

Happy Valentine’s Day
We’ve all read books that have made us laugh, cry and taken us on a rollercoaster of feelings. So we know that story can evoke emotions. But what I found in my writing process is that emotions can evoke story. If I’m feeling emotional and I’m not sure why, I sit down and write. I’m usually surprised at the stories that emerge. Some of my best writing happens when I’m feeling emotional. So I think that not only stories can evoke emotions but emotions can evoke stories. Just like ice melts into water and water freezes into ice.
