I’ve done a lot of things in my life. Of course, when you’re older than dirt, that’s sort of expected. Still, I can’t count on one hand the number of careers I’ve had. Not sure that’s a good thing but it’s worked for me. Hard to get bored when you change fields periodically. A lot of my careers haven’t been all that…traditional. As a result, I was contacted by a PR dude from Harper Collins because they want to feature some Harlequin authors who had crazy jobs before they became romance authors. We’ve been emailing back and forth and I’ve been told there might even be a video, which would be totally awesome! Anyway, my current career–romance novelist–sort of came out of left field. Oh, I always had it in the back of my mind that I wanted to write novels but romance? Yet here I am, loving every minute of what I do. Mostly. Sometimes the characters and/or plot refuse to work with me.
Today’s wisdom from the Universe pretty much covers the bases. First off, it asks, “What if?” This is a novelist’s go-to question. And I’ve already mentioned the whole left field thing. At the same time, I’ve enjoyed all my other careers. Mostly. And the things I learned, the lifetimes I lived all gave me the basis to create the characters and stories in my imagination–to give them not only life but realness too. This is a good time of year to look back at what we’ve done with our lives and where we want to go…
What if, Silver, your greatest success in this lifetime is to come from a completely unexpected field?
And it will be made possible because you followed your heart in all of the expected fields?
Have you considered that?
It’s all for you,

Follow your heart, Silver, no matter what.
I’ll continue to follow my heart. What about you?
