Ghost Writers must know the hero’s world

A writer must know, really know, the world the hero lives in from many different angles if it’s to recreate a deep character with layers of significance.  This complexity is what I love about a character.

Writers sometimes use poetry to warm up their creative juices for the day. Sometimes I do. I get in touch with my feelings and accept them or do away with them if I don’t want them and get right into the writing.  The vision comes more clearly to me that way when I am in a state of zen. I write what I live and live what I write.image003  The following is an expert from my book Sandcastles which I am reading and revising.

Dream

Make every day a new dream

every hour an ecstasy

never regret your mistakes

but never make the same one twice

face every challenge

strengthen self-esteem

put aside ungratified desires

don’t miss things you don’t have

measure every opportunity

let it o by if it means trouble

treasure memories of bliss

they’ll come around to greet you

on every door to knock

they’re hidden smiles upon hard times

feel alive each minute

look around you and be one with your surroundings

let emotions take you over

and be free this way

never stay on the same track too long

change goals when you can’t reach them

trying is what counts and what we learn from

striving to achieve is the one objective

intensify your senses

omit no details

meditate and concentrate

life is too short for self-pity and contempt

By Angela Terga, written in 1978

2015 Report-2016 Outlook

It has been more than a year since I embarked on this journey. There is the copyright of a first draft but the final draft needs to be finalised with the rewrite and edit. This work is pending the fulfilment of the contract.

To describe 2015 using the term ‘challenging’ does not do it justice. But God is good and I am starting 2016 with the knowing that the Universe supports my goals and I am fearless.

As an aspiring writer and filmmaker coming out of a difficult online Creative Writing MFA program in the fall of 2014, with no looming job in the horizon and tucked away in the boondocks, I relied only on Providence to see me through my darkest hour. It was the first time in 20 years that I did not have a teaching job and dared to follow my dreams of becoming an author and filmmaker.

Self-publishing the novel Spiderwoman: an Amazon Legend, along with Sandcastles, a book of poems and Isabel, my thesis screenplay, did nothing else but satisfy the ideal of being an author; at least it filled the space on my new…

Everything Art

Everything Art is where you can bring your art, sell it and make money in many ways. An artist not only has to create but also sell.  In the old days, artists relied on wealthy feudal lords who paid serfs and artisans to create portraits, write family stories, design furniture, fabrics, clothing, and just about anything for the feudal family.  Today, there are many artists who are endowed by foundations, others who are adopted by private art studios; and then there are artists who are trying to sell their art and ware online, at fairs and conferences around the world, to their friends and family, and just about anywhere.  If you are this last kind of artist then Everything Art is designed to help you succeed.

Everything Art is a new company being formed as we speak.  Every single one of you who becomes a member will also have the right to own shares in the company. We’re taking it to the max at Everything Art. “Publicly traded companies are the thing of the past,” said Sabia, when she told our story after the ecotomb. This is just an insert of my for of expression that is known as literary art, or writing, I mix it with reality all the time.  But to continue on the subject of stock trading, imagine being part of a huge art conglomerate and having a little symbol identifier.  That would be so great to have but only if it meant that a lot of people were benefiting from it. You see, when you become an equity you kind of cease to exist as a physical entity and you’re pretty much running on residuals.  you can stop growing organically and become just an equity stock in a conglomerate.  Your best selling products may still be generating a huge amount of income and you have lots of tiny little entities tied to you plus big ones you have acquired and others you are in the process of acquiring. All of them constitute the whole pizza and the exchange runs reports you can see how well the stock is doing by the number of favourable bets it receives.  That’s the daily exchange happening in digital ownership. Can you cash in on that? I think so, but you might not want to unless your intention is for the stock to die.  What you get is the credit to your company’s name.

Everything art can only be successful if you come together as a community so that people will have a one-place stop to shop for art and an ongoing art show. What is better is that you won’t have to give away your art if you don’t want to.  You can still be the sole proprietor of your art piece unless, of course, you can’t refuse an offer.  What is more, you will be able to produce amazing articles of clothing, furnishing, decor, jewellery or anything else you’d like by way of a third party or producer and selling through Everything Art.

A non-profit foundation, Global Learning Connections, seeks to help people around the globe improve their living conditions and participate in a global economy in which consumers make an intelligent decision when they purchase online or at the store. More about that in future blogs.

I believe the best relationships begin with a common purpose and intent to create a win-win situation.  When you come upon bumps and holes along the way, the relationship is salvaged through transparency.  That’s the key.  We want to create a universe where artists, manufacturers, and salesmen work synergistically for the client. Everything Art is the platform for artists everywhere to showcase creations through myriad ways.

Focus on Focusing

Have you ever felt like you were on the short end of the stick,  travelling in the opposite way in which you wished to go and wondered why? Well, if it’s all in our mind, then focusing on what you want should get you more of it, if you take out the stigma of not having it. That’s what Wayne Dyer, Deepak Chopra, Esther Hicks, and Napoleon Hill, the Secret, and many other Law of Attraction paracletes abrogate. But to no consolation since the lack of whatever it is you want and don’t have is the constant mediator between you and yourself.

After much sen seing on your part to yourself, over and over, again and again, you may feel to be in an illumined state of ‘let it be; let it go,’ don’t push in either direction, stay put, relax. Where there is neither pain nor gain, neither joy nor sorrow, nothingness brings you to the start.  Fresh and out of Compton into the Vortex where all your dreams are real, there is nothing lacking, and life, reality, your bank account, the hits on your YouTube channel and your place on Google are all indicators of your right alignment that makes ‘it is as it is’ the dream of dreams.

Wishing everyone a Happy Mother’s Day! From TAT Productions, A Woman in Film.

BITTERness ends when you liberate your mind

via Daily Prompt: Bitter

Think of the times you didn’t get what you want. Perhaps others around you did.  Or the times you go by a certain house or see a certain scene in which you wish you would be or have. Does that create a bitter taste in your mouth and in your soul?  It feels like you’re not getting what you deserve and want and you wonder why if you think you’ve done the right thing or not as bad a thing as some who do seem to get what they want.  First, you’re looking at others and assuming they are getting what they want and comparing yourself to them. Two, you’re not looking at the advantages of what you do have and what you can do with it.  In other words, looking outside of yourself is not the answer to getting rid of bitterness. If you think you have been short-changed in life maybe it is time to start feeling grateful for everything you have now, the air that you breathe, the shape of the trees, the roof over your head, as modest as it may be. Whatever your circumstance is there is hope in your heart, there always is.  Take that hope and turn it into joy.  Make a point of seeing things in a positive light.   For every negative thought, there is a positive one.  Use your imagination to fly away from the material into the subconscious.  Stay there. Separate yourself from your body and the things around you. Look at them from a third perspective.  Then see yourself as you wish to be and put this image in your soul, you head, your tongue, and your thoughts.  Stay there and create your own reality.

It is in the power of your mind that happiness lies and bitterness ends.  There, all the turmoils of fitting in and competition end. Liberate your thoughts, create your own reality in your head first, and stick with it no matter what. That is called perseverance. Insist on feeling good. Feel good every morning, every day, day after day.  Breathe slowly and watch your breath. Exercise to get the most energy flowing at a cellular level. Keep your image of yourself in your perfect world in your mind and in your soul so that you can smile at adversity and know it is not you, it is not real, what is real is what’s in your head.  Delusional? Not quite. Optimistic? Yes.

The more optimistic you are and feel, the sooner your alignment will follow. Try it and live the life you dream.
