Thursday Thoughts: Universal Perspective Part 2

universeLast week, I had two quotes from the Universe about putting things into perspective and how sometimes, one needed to change their perception. Yeah, the Universe is still talking about it, but this time, it’s all about finding what works best. I know last week, I was all about the disciplined work ethic and slapping words onto paper. Then I read this:

Tell me, when you think of taking consistent action in the general direction of your dreams, Silver, do you imagine discipline, stamina, work, sacrifice, monotony, courage, and strategies, or are you thinking adventure, discovery, new friends, excitement at the crack of dawn, magic, surprises, fun, laughter, and, on occasion, the Macarena?

Cool! Me too, “HEY!”

Your chosen perspective, Silver, changes everything.

I’m at almost 20K words on BLUE MOON. I’ve found my rhythm. And I might just make the Wolves dance the Macarena because…Hey! Macarena! Okay, okay. Mac is shooting me a dirty look, Sean’s crawling under Drover (my Highlander) with a suspicious looking package, Nate’s scowling, Lightfoot is cleaning his sniper rifle, and Danny’s all “Heck, yeah, let’s do it!” Antoine? Antoine’s a little busy at the moment, claiming his mate. I don’t anticipate the others will see him and DJ for awhile. 😉

So, y’all pick one of the fun things above and figure out how to change your perspective with it. Me? As soon as I get the dang song out of my head, I’ll be figuring out what Sean can blow up next because…adventure! Crack of dawn! Surprises! And Sean sure has fun doin’ it. 😉

  1. Consistent action. See, now that’s what I usually fall down on. (And not my butt like yesterday. LOL) Sure, sometimes you have to throw fun in there, too. But my problem is I consistently have fun and I forget to throw work in there. Gotta find a balance, doncha know.

    I refuse your Macarena earworm today. lalalalala…. Two years of working as a wedding videographer and DJ assistant during the height of that song’s popularity will pretty much make you twitchy when you hear it for the rest of your life.

    Congrats on finding Blue Moon’s rhythm. You can do this! I need to pick my rhythm back up after i dropped it yesterday. Right after I limp down to WallyWorld for catfood.

      Yeah, I’m headed to the store with Sprout in tow because we ran out of formula. He won’t get his afternoon bottle and I won’t get any peace otherwise.

      BLUE MOON has given me fits. And now all sorts of twists are cropping up. Argh! I’m worried nothing will make sense. We’ll see when I get it done. How are the bruises and sore muscles?

    I think it definitely takes all those things to make a good story. I read somewhere the other day that writing is the HARDEST job you can have (other than being a mom of course) because you have to use every bit of all you list AND you have pour your soul onto paper.

    I was thinking about all the characters that I’ve written about and the ones I actually finished? They were the ones that had a whole lot of me in them. Go figure! I bet if you look, you will find the same thing.

    Here’s to discipline and having fun while doing it!

    • Silver James says:

      My CP is very happy to point out when the characters take after me. She swears Sade was me at 30 (though she didn’t know me then) and that Hannah is me today. I just don’t see it. *looks all shifty-eyed*

      And yeah, writing is HARD! Way harder than people who don’t write realize.

Got something to say?
