The first week of July has passed. I have written some on my work in progress. I am under-motivated due to the heat and the sick dog and the general stuff I need to do but never see to get to. Argh. So I have begun some affirmations and meditations which some people call prayer. Whatever works, I hope you will find something of worth in this spirit-lifting recital.
Creator of All, with Whom I am One,
One mind, One will, One breath.
Fill my thoughts with encouragement and motivation
Allow me to slip out of the ties of stress and duty
Long enough to put words down into reality
Let there be a channel from my thoughts to a creativity
Found nowhere else than in the expression that is me.
Divine Creator, One Mind that is My Mind,
Be with me as I push aside the day’s trials
Uphold my inventions of Characters and Plot,
Light my way through the dim arcs so they make sense to me
Roll the clay of my Hero into understandable shape
Form my Heroine to fit his learning curve, to make him
One with a High Concept, be it forgiveness or sanity
Above all, around all, through all, show me that my villain is
Believable, motivated as if this is their story, and set on course
Unable to deviate without losing too much to bear.
In holy meditation, open my eyes to PS&G that I might edit
With a whole and open heart.
Let my Beta readers see the plot holes and send in the ideas
On fixing those without redoing from scratch.
When I have my best work in reality
Send me the knowledge of synopsis and cover letters
Let me choose the right tone with editors and agents
May they not have a story just like it in the works
I know and believe that my novel is unique
And with a little Divine Light, those who need to see it will
Find my work what they are looking for.
May I not skimp on marketing duties.
May I love signing books and talking with fans.
May I have a cover that reaches all who will love my writing
Divine Creator, please remind me that we are only beginning
Let the sequel to this book flood easily from my heart
Let the career of many novels be my chosen path
Let the right count of words appear before me.
I am a Writer, a Novelist, a Romance Author.
While others may have written similar stories,
Only I can channel the story in my own way.
Thank you, Creator. And so it is, and so I let it be.
Thank you for reading. I’ll be back on Thursday.
