As I sit in my great room on this Nov.17th day, watching Occupy Wall Street, I am reminded of the changing of every day life. I believe that we are facing chaotic times. As a teacher of the scriptures for over 30 years I see so many prophetic events coming to fruition. The understanding is that things will get better, but will it? From my perspective and understanding of the scriptures...this is the worst GLOBAL crisis since the fall of the Roman and Greecian empires. The world wars fought in the 40's were after the depression and life seemed to offer little hope to so many ;espiecally to the Jewish nation during the Third Reich. But this is far different. There has never been the global economic climate in tandem with the weather patterns,high technological break throughs in addition to earthquakes, and now China (which is documented as one of the world powers in a time such as this) being a threat. While so many may dismiss one or two things, anyone with a thinking brain can see that this is a time such as none other.
While writing is a wonderful way to convey thoughts, get messages of all forms out and also aid in cathardic healing there is so much energy invested in changing our world in other ways. I have always felt that the pen truly is mightier than the sword. So much can be accomplished through the written and spoken word,but am I even writing anything that will ever be read? Is this really that important in the sheme of life? There will always be another cause and reason to leave the decision I have made. And so as I pick up my laptop to write today,I find that I am in my life....seeing so mamy needs in the world ...choosing to write....for me this is a conundrum.
So why am I going to push for my novel to be completed on the timeline? Because I have made a promise to myself to do this. Why? I know that life will always get in the way and so I need to press forward in my decison to write, and this is where I am today...working towards the novel's completion.
I am up to 23,000 words at this point in my writing. I have been having some issues getting on the internet the last few days and so now we have pumped up our internet package. My protagonist is beginning to take on the full character of what makes her who she is. Her family line had provided a means for easy living which she decided not to partake in. Her twin sister Katrina falls ill and Ty Madision finds herself in the right place at the right time to blow the lid off mental healht abuse in a well respected hospital.
And so my plan is to type another 2 or 3 thousand words
