if wishes had wings, I'd be flyin'

It has been years since writing at such a pace as I am now. I had forgotten what a lonely profession writing can be. My characters are interacting, having new experiences, and talking a lot, and I am lonely when they are not talking, and I'm not busy writing. It's a strange phenomenon, waiting for the company of your characters. I think that's why I've been writing so much.

Today is Wishcasting Wednesday and Jamie Ridler asks: "What do you wish to dare?"

These wishes are so wide open that almost anything can fit into them! I wish to engage life.. that is the first thing that came to my mind. That means leaving my house to do more than go grocery shopping, or for a drs. appointment, or to visit with my mom just occasionally. It's about getting out there... somewhere, anywhere, and engaging people... becoming "part of". I miss people much of the time, miss nature, miss life. Of course, I wasn't always like this, which is why I'm able to write stories.

My niece/god-daughter, is having a baby this month, and I look forward to that new life instilling life in me, as well.


  1. As you wish for yourself, so I wish for you aslo Daring Barbara!

    Inhaling Life is a great dare!


  2. There is nothing that can connect you more then the www. For me that's true. I never would make it without my friends from all over the world.
    As Barbara wishes for herself, so I wish for her also.

  3. Barbara, sign up for a Tai Chi class. It's great exercise, great fun, and you meet people.
    Look here for a class near you

  4. Lawendula is so right - every day I connect with my worldwide tribe of fellow creatives and it inspires and uplifts me! So, go pack a day bag and see where your nose takes you tomorrow - hopefully a wonderful adventure!

  5. As Barbara wishes for herself, I so wish for her also.....

    Yes! thanks to connection when the ones outside are sometimes less than....

  6. As Barbara wishes for herself, so I wish for her also.

    I struggle with acute shyness, so interacting with people via the web is a great healing step. It's amazing what you can do from your computer when you are too afraid to leave the house!

  7. hope your wishes come true!

  8. As Barbara wishes for herself, so I wish for her also.

    And what great work to achieve the 40k word count, well done! :)

  9. Sometimes I wish I could write like taht, but I have no imagination. :(


Thank you for reading my blog, and spending some time with me... I am truly honored.
