Dance, my pretty! Dance!

I love it when I am so inspired that I can effectively work on several projects at once. I can write 1000 words on one, and easily move to 500 words on another. There’s enough inspiration to go around and I plan on using this surge of creative force to my advantage.

This past weekend HDL topped the paranormal romance charts in the top 100, which isn’t bad for a new book its first week out. Word-of-mouth hasn’t gotten around yet.

In the meantime, I keep writing because the stories keep coming and my brain is busy with ┬ácharacters who have a great deal to say. Love that! As long as I don’t mix story lines, we’re good. LOL!

Oh, I have such plans for Lori’s wedding! ­čÖé

On that note, finally ….

Nothing can be so amusingly arrogant as a young man who has just discovered an old idea and thinks it is his own. –┬á– Sidney J. Harris

Okay, I admit it. There are times I’ll do things just to get a rise out of other people because it’s rather amusing. Some people just have no control of their emotions, so their reactions can be anticipated and easily manipulated. Admittedly I did include a few things in a chapbook I recently wrote just because I knew I would get a reaction from certain folks. It worked and it was just as funny as I imagined it would be. (For that I thank you. I’m still giggling!) No, I wasn’t “stealing ideas”. I simply mentioned, in brief passing without any real specifics, a few things a certain person thinks she created and owns. Neither of which is true. Actually, if the truth be known, I first heard about certain things from OTHER magicians and friends. Imagine that! I know A LOT of people from A LOT of different traditions. However, this person is so arrogant that she believes I actually stole her ideas. Funny. I have found articles on said subjects that pre-date her books and blog. Who is stealing whose ideas again? That’s too funny for words. Funny how this person dishes and dishes the bullshit, but the second someone throws it back at her, she melts-down and has a hissy fit. Then cries that she’s being bullied. If I had a dime for every time she put me on blast on her blog and talked shit about┬áme, I’d be a few thousand dollars richer right now. That shit is hysterical.

Does this make me a bitch? Probably. One little bit of advice – if you dish it, you better be able to take it.┬áIf you can’t take it, however, you probably ought to STFU.

On that note – “Dance my pretty, dance!” laughs the puppet master. Also, guardians sound a lot like gatekeepers. Who’s “stealing” whose ideas again? (BTW – I don’t really think anyone is stealing my ideas. I’m not arrogant enough to pretend I created the concept of a gatekeeper. However my book was finished first. Funny how everything I write, there seems to be a certain person’s version of it after the fact…. ­čśë )
