Thoughts race in your mind, which topic would I choose. As you write a rough draft your hand trembles. (Tests)7. The golden thread of the Writing Meditation Practice guides you. (Allies)...

SHELL HOUSE

Mindful Writers Fourth Retreat Anthology I received my copy of SHELL HOUSE, the fourth anthology by twenty-three Mindful Writers. At first, I thought to save the book to read during our summer vacation to Canadian Rockies while traveling by Rocky Mountaineer Train. But when it arrived I couldn't wait. I read the first story, then the second and couldn't stop reading. It has turned into my bedtime read. Fantastic!   My story, "Life in the Mirror" is about how fanciful and implausible events occur if creativity is suppressed. This is my first story with the "Fantasy" theme. What about ordering your own copy? Here's the link:https://cutt.ly/XKiiKlL ...
