While reading this great article I’m reminded that some of the most well known authors had to wait to get their works published such as Laura Ingalls Wilder who did not publish until her mid ’60’s. Read “It’s Never Too Late,” and you may learn to relax and just create.
A little something enjoyable from another blogger.
So there’s snow in the mountains and sun down here-most of the time. Saturday was the first time Stella (a calico kitty) saw hail. She’s an indoor kitty so she hasn’t felt it yet but being that she’s only 1 1/2, she may in her lifetime depending on where and when I move.
Still looking for a job- or I should say normal job. I don’t consider working at home normal-even for those that are able to survive on it.
Anyway, so for the second half of this month: Working on Rice book,getting job offers here and there and started a new collage. Eeh, no much.

If you’ve ever taken a fiction writing course, chances are you’ve heard, “Stick with one point of view. Very few writers can switch in the middle of a story and pull it off.” Well Karen Jones Gowen didn’t listen. Afraid of Everything starts out as a well written firsthand account of the life of one woman desperate to change her life after an incident at work causes an all-consuming fear to take hold of her. It is within the discussion of this fear that the author- without being dull or sounding as if she is writing a diagnostic account- gives some very real explanation of Generalized Anxiety Disorder that is neither dumbed down or patronizing.
Gowen then deftly turns the tables on the reader and transports him or her into an artfully crafted third person account of what happens to the main character after a life altering injury and her subsequent coma within which she is taken on a journey that evokes the pages of a well-crafted fantasy novel – complete with a guide called Coriander.
It’s a story of a woman who was afraid of everything but was just beginning anew when her world is shattered. In the bulk of the book, we are with the main character Coriander as she guides her through this other land and teachers her through stories, parables and the occasional encounter with the dead relatives, about herself, relationship, and a life well lived and the messages she has been given on her journey to impart to those in her life.
