Taking in the Pacific Ocean’s summer breeze on a warm summer evening from Laguna beach is spectacular.
Nature is always the perfect backdrop to any story. Mine has begun.

Today was beautiful. It was a perfect Saturday. The sun warmed me on my hour’s walk to get some sweet potatoes with marshmallows. Nothing like some soul food to fight the numbing sensation of writer’s block that has been brought … Continue reading

Finding Your POV in the Banal


POV - Your Own

Frustrating. That is just how it feels when the same words go from my head to the document. Unlike when the magic is there as  the story flows, smoothly. Like a chocolate fondue over the sweetest strawberry. Your heart races as, in between each breath, your muses continue their gem offerings. Exhilarating. If you could only hold on to it… ..But then, there it is that thing. Yes, that, the ordinary. The same old tucking at you, embarrassing you in places  you’d prefer to ignore – – just like gum caught on your sole…. So what to do? You sweat, as you pick at it and pull it off…Then you walk a few paces looking for a place to run your foot hard back-and-forth many times  to get the sticky mess gone. And then, just as you did before, you do it again. You write. This time though your POV starts brewing from the very frustrating place you were in just a few moments ago, okay, for weeks… But there it is, a picture. One seen by all many times but simply left  behind. Oh. You have seen it too, and walked on by in a hurry to catch up and get to – – no where. Now, here you are and  move from side to side looking at different angles and realize the ordinary is truly extraordinary. The magic is in the angle, the POV that is your own. Simple stories, in between the darkness of the wall separating them, can converge and release colors so bright and true. Ahhhhh. You can sit down now, comfortably, in front of your laptop and type away…. If you only trust the process a little more…. Your POV will enliven even the banal, as that is where all the good stuff flows from, anyway.
