Currently Nights of Passion blog will be undergoing through changes and renovations.

Nights of Passion will expand to include the passions that often happen at night such as Mystery, Science Fiction and Fantasy.  Some new authors will be joining us.  Some will write weekly while others will be joining us once a month.

We do have a few open spots still. If you are an author of romance, mystery, science fiction, and fantasy, and would like to write for Nights of Passion, please, email me at onlyladyknight(at)yahoo(dot)com with NOP in the subject line.

I’m looking forward to the adventure. I am also interested in ideas from readers. Please, email me also or comment in the comment box.

Twists and Turns and More

The past several days I have found myself binging on Dan Brown books made into movies, specifically this featuring professor Robert Langdon. It has been some time since I have watched these movies and even longer since I have read the books. I seem to have forgotten all the twists and turns and details that make these books such page turners.

Thinking about Angels and DemonsThe Da Vinci Code, and Inferno reminds me of what it is like to be lost in a book, mesmerized by the world and characters an author can create. When done well, it is quite fascinating as to how it can truly capture an audience and wield so much power. I mean I remember when these books came out and the huge following it garnered. They made many folks question what was real and what wasn’t.

When I think about what truly makes a book stand out, what comes to mind are details, believable characters, a storyline that is compelling and somewhat logical as well as unpredictable. I want to lose myself in that story and world if only for a little while. I am after all a reader before a writer although they both make me happy in different ways.

Happy writing this week!

Floral Faery Paranormal-Scope

A friend of mine insists that there is a special faery who watches over every bloom in the garden whether planted or growing wild. I was willing to explore. Sometimes we don’t get to see the faeries but we do see the flowers everywhere! Besides extending Mothers’ Day is a good thing.

While I am not qualified in any way to read neither stars nor planets, I am intimately linked to the paranormal in the world in many ways. So are you.

The paranormal-scope is for entertainment purposes only and is not meant to guide your life by.

Aries:
Edelweiss is a tender white flower that burst through the snow, heralding spring and a lack of defeat in all things. You can’t be defeated. You may change direction or reorganize. But you will win the day.

Taurus:
Crocus in deep purple and blue pushes through the snow like a surprise. A surprise is headed your way. Working in a new way will be more productive.

Gemini:
The Dog-Violet is deep purple and is fuzzy in a comforting way. Things might get hard but you will come out ahead and be comforted by someone unexpected.

Cancer:
The Daffodil trumpets spring in a blaze of gold. You are going to enjoy the company of golden friends.

Leo:
The Wood-Sorrel is a delicate pink flower that preferrs the solitude of woodlands and secluded areas of garden. Take some time to meditate or reflect on the best parts of your life.

Virgo:
Dandelions embrace change. First with their bright yellow and then by going light-hearted and sending out their options. A new opportunity will make you smile.

Libra:
Pansies come in a variety of colors and prefer part-shade to some sun. Vary your activities. Don’t be all work and no play. Don’t ignore your friends and family. They need you.

Scorpio:
Pussy willow flowers can be the softest yellow. Then comes the tiny pillows of the heart

Sagittarius:
Daisies are brave and free and explore all kinds of places. They don’t limit themselves. Make a plan to travel to a new place.

Capricorn:
Lilacs welcome you home and ease your mind. To do your best work, you must relax.  Believe in yourself. Others do.

Aquarius:
The snowdrop with it’s white and golden face shines good luck on you. Be generous with your kindness.

Pisces:
Redbud is a tree flower that is a feast of pink. Give someone who is sad flowers. The kindness will spread to many.

Open to Change

I spend a lot of time talking to people. My job over the better part of the last decade has involved getting to know people, asking them questions and helping them figure out what it is they want and how they should go about achieving their goals. This by no means makes me an expert on people. If anything, I feel like the longer I live or the older I get, the more questions I have. One thing I have learned thus far is that many of us seem to have a certain tolerance or acceptance of change.

Change is part of life whether we want it to be or not. Some of us welcome it with open arms while others shy away from it. And then of course there is always the matter of how change can impact us (we sometimes more easily accept change as long as it doesn’t have as great an impact on us personally). But sometimes change is necessary, even good for us.

I recently spoke with a woman who grew up poor. She had a sad childhood and for her own protection, created somewhat of an invisible box around herself. To say she doesn’t spend is an understatement. Quite simply, she has created a cage around herself and made herself the prisoner of her own fears. She fears change to be mor open and enjoy her life because she is afraid the past will come back to haunt her, or even worse, it will be her reality again. For any chance at happiness, this woman needs change, but I’m not sure she’ll ever be capable of seeing this.

So is change good or bad? Sometimes it is neither or both or one. What is important is to not fear it and to instead learn from it. Otherwise, we may find ourselves riddled with regrets.

Happy writing this week!

Half Way There

Have you ever started something and not finished it? Do you make a habit of leaving unfinished projects or do you tend to get everything done no matter what you push aside to do so?

I’ve always been one of those people who fall kind of in the middle—I tend to work on a gazillion projects at one time and I skip back and forth between them. Eventually, the projects get finished and I start new ones although the timelines for each project may vary. I used to hate this about mys of, the fact that I was always working on so many things and I couldn’t finish one thing at a time. It is if I get bored if I don’t have a ton of things to work on. I honestly seem to concentrate better the more I have to do.

In my job, my varied focus has come in handy as a stress reducer. Day after day, I get somethings done and I leave others unfinished. I see those around me panic about the workload or the fact that they never completely finish their work. The way I see it, it is important to work hard and make progress but you also must learn to measure progress it small steps. Sometimes half way there is enough for today and that is what keeps us going or at least feeling some sense of accomplishment. Otherwise, we’d stress ourselves to the max and find ourselves out of a job anyway. Is it worth the stress? Probably not.

Lesson of today? Small steps with direction are progress and yes, patience is a virtue. Happy writing this week!
