wings and things


on March 22, 2014

I was so overcome with a sensation of bliss this morning, as I stepped into my writing room, that my heart skipped madly as if it were Julie Andrews frolicking on various hills in The Sound of Music. The bliss has been so overwhelming that I have only been able to write one paragraph of my new short story because the bliss keeps interrupting my train of thought. So hopefully the bliss will be a little less unruly tomorrow and allow me to think more clearly about this short story and, yes, write it.

One of the main characters is named after my friend at the blog
Rhonda gave me permission to borrow bits of her personality for the character in my short story. Julie will be the other main character but I’m only going to use bits of my personality too. In other words, the ‘Rhonda’ and the ‘Julie’ in the story are fictional creatures – ha!

This is going to be great fun as soon as I can turn the bliss down to a low hum.

    Julie, you don’t even think for a minute that I will believe that the fictional account of “Julie” and “Rhonda” is anything more than your blantant attempt to shadow the truth in make believe??? LOL LOL, Sweetie you will be found out. I am so tickled you have your writing room and the bliss that comes with it. Please take care, enjoy yourself, and only share the juicy parts. XOX Bill

      Truly, Bill, I have never even met Rhonda and only know here via blogging. Be careful or I will cast a villain character named Bill ha!

        Bliss off yourself, Muse! I won’t post the story itself on this blog but will enjoy posting about its progress. Rhonda and Julie (in the story) have just arrived at destination of some sort and Julie has only just woken up (because Rhonda was driving). This is so fun! I will message you privately re the serious side of this. xx

    I can well imagine how you must feel, Julie.
    Such a treat it is to have a new space of your own, all fresh and crisp from the painter’s brush down to your new desk.

  15. Oh how I would love to feel bliss, at the moment all I feel is pain day in and day out.

    I know this has nothing do to with your blog entry, but today I saw a wall full of comments to the current Australian Government that were all about serious issues, serious words and so forth. Then, I read one that simply said: “Dear Mr Abbott. Please stop wearing those budgie smugglers. It’s embarrassing” and it was signed “Jules.”
    I know it wasn’t you but I immediately thought of you. God bless you!
