Visions and Revisions

O, to be a visionary!

To see things no one else can see, to dream big, to travel to exotic lands.

However, sometimes when I see stuff no one else can see, I need more (or less) caffeine. Along with dreams come nightmares. The most exotic place I’ve been lately is the post office.

Imagination makes all the difference. Imagination spurs writing, an act of creation. Imagination can  take me to the pyramids in my mind. Imagination allows me to share my stories with others and take them to the pyramids as well.

Sometimes writing is just trudging along, revising words and revising worlds, murdering your darlings (fictional, that is) and waving bye-bye to things that don’t work.

Let’s talk about all that stuff, preferably with a nice cuppa tea or coffee.

  1. The pyramids would make a wonderful place for a retreat.

    • Yes. Just bring some sunscreen and a parasol. I was thinking about that old Maria Muldaur song from the seventies, “Midnight at the Oasis, put your camel to bed.”

  2. ;Hi, Gale! Nice job on the new blog. Thanks for including my Travels. I’ll add you to my roster also.

  3. Hi, Gale,
    I’m going to love your new blog . . . looks like the camel is wondering how they built those pyramids. Check out and communicate with Aggie Mundeen.
