Read. Dream. Believe.

Not sure if this has been evident to most people, but I have been in a rut for quite awhile. Personally and professionally, I’ve been rolling a little ways forward only to roll right back again. It’s become apparent that in order to get out of my rut and get back on the road, I am going to have to take some big steps – maybe too big for comfort.

The idea of these big steps has been on my mind a lot, to the point that on a recent morning when I woke up, my first thought was: “I’m not ready.” Then I went on to Facebook, and the following quote popped up. Okay, Universe, message received. There’s no such thing as ready, there’s only now. Let’s see what happens from here! (And if you want to share any good thoughts, experiences or advice on self-rut-ejection, I would be more than happy to read them!)

The above quote is from this interview with the wonderful Hugh Laurie. I snagged the graphic from the Writing About Writing page on Facebook.

Today we reflect, with gratitude, on the life and lessons of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., one of history’s greatest humanitarians. Dr. King committed his life to bringing grace, peace and freedom to our young and violent country. He saw the best in humanity; he knew that we can be better and kinder, that we can uplift each other and bring a brighter and more loving future to bear. We can still fulfill his dream, as long as we keep moving forward.

“If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.” – Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Here is a link to his classic work, Strength to Love, in case you want to read more about him, in his own words:

Happy Martin Luther King, Jr. Day! Let’s make practicing what he preached a year-round thing.

 

BookofHours-Low
Well, I’ve been away from my blog for longer than I expected, but the time hasn’t been unproductive. I am so excited to tell you that I have three new stories coming out before the end of the year. The first one is available now!

My new series of short fiction, called Book of Hours, is a collection of eight magical love stories, which take place at different times of day. Every hour has a feeling all its own, and so does every tale in this unique and enchanting collection. (At least, I hope you will find the enchanting!)

So, without further ado, let me tell you a little about the first three stories:

The Magic Hour

Returning to the small town where she grew up, Jean takes refuge in a place of childhood legend. Down at the Singing Creek, where the water croons soothingly and the air crackles with lore, she will lose a shoe, gain a trio of unlikely allies, and reconnect with an old rival. But will Jean be able to see beyond the sorrows and mistakes of her past, and allow herself to embrace the happy future that’s waiting for her?

I’ll be posting more information soon about all eight stories, but now that the first two are on Amazon, I am too excited to wait to share this.

Hugs and Happy Reading,

Misha
