Original poetry: second thoughts

I have second thoughts about my journey,

The process of writing my story.

Are the words that I placed on the page

Written for gods glory?

Give me oh, Lord, the words to write

Lay your story upon my heart,

These second thoughts do not seem right

Please give me a brand new start.

What would you have me write today

To make my story ring true?

The words you Place upon my heart

I’ll share to give all the glory to you.

Amen.

Inspirational Journeys Presents: 3 Recommended Twitter Chats for Writers

In today’s podcast episode I recommend three Twitter chats for writers. Log onto Twitter and search for the following hashtags, before the chats take place to learn more about them:

WHAT?
#MCChat
WHEN?
Tuesdays at 9 PM Eastern

#MCChat is a Twitter chat where writers answer questions posed by the host in the voice of the mmain character of their WIP as a comment in the retweeted question. This is a lot of fun and you may learn a few things about your character that you didn’t discover in the development process.

WHAT?
#WritersLifeChat
WHEN?
Wednesdays at 8 PM Eastern

In this chat, the host or guest host asks five questions about a specific topic centered around the writing life and chat participants will answer them, including the host.

WHAT?
#PubChat
WHEN?
Wednesdays at 9 PM Eastern, directly following #WritersLifeChat

In this chat the host talks about writing and publishing, but topics are focused more on the writing process, than the craft itself.

To hear a more in depth explanation of these chats and the story of how I found them, Listen to today’s episode at the following link:

If you know of any other writing related Twitter chats you’d like to share with me, be sure to tag me on Twitter with the appropriate hashtags and I’ll check them out.
Hugs,
Ann

Inspirational Journeys Presents: Special Guest Interview with Thea Ramsay

After scheduling problems and technical difficulties, I am pleased to bring to you an interview with my long awaited guest. Continue reading to learn more about Thea and her books.
INSPIRATIONAL JOURNEYS PRESENTS!

SPECIAL GUEST INTERVIEW WITH THEA RAMSAY!
Hello:
I’m proud to announce the following guest for your listening pleasure.
Please be sure to read onward after the following message to learn how you can be my guest here on INSPIRATIONAL JOURNEYS.
Thanks for listening and do write to let me and my guest know what you thought of this presentation.

THEA RAMSAY

Tuesday September 3, 2019
WHERE?

MORE ABOUT GUEST AUTHOR THEA RAMSAY…

Thea Ramsay has been a Christian for a long time. As a member of the Baptist Denomination, she has undergone the believer’s baptism twice—the first time at the age of fourteen, the second time in the Pacific Ocean off Maui, with her late husband.
She started writing before she could spell. She still remembers writing a short story in which she spelled magic “M-A-D-J-I-K.”
She’s also a voracious reader, and still likes magic. Not witchcraft, but that of fantasies and fairy tales, which have delighted people for centuries.
Thea was born blind, and she suffers from chronic pain, caused by a variety of conditions, and a serious mental illness called borderline personality disorder.
Thea loves soft, romantic and beautiful things, which she writes about in her novels, because she feels that the world is lacking in these qualities.

Thea’s latest book is entitled Lucy.

Description:
Ten-year-old Lucy and her parents live on Earth in the last throes of its final holocaust. Their only hope is being accepted as refugees on another world, but one rejection letter after another eats away at their hope, while death closes in on them. Hope revives when a stranger arrives with a letter of acceptance from the mysterious planet Andorpha.

While Lucy, her best friend, Kim, and her parents wait to board the space ship, her parents are killed. Lucy faces danger and growth as she comes to grips with her parents’ death and the strange customs of Andorpha. While Kim laps up Andorphian love like warm milk, Lucy wonders if it’s all too good to be true. When Lucy learns the Andorphians believe their planet is under a curse, she begins to suspect there is a reason that she and her family were so readily accepted as refugees. Do they expect her to be the antidote to an ancient curse?

When Kim urges Lucy to accept the Andorphians and their way of life, the only shot at life they have, Lucy is certain she’s right. But all is not what it seems.
