Sleepless in Seattle

I cant sleep tonight. Probably because I slept so much the past two days due to an injury. (Woe is me). The good thing about being laid up is that I can read and write to my hearts content.  I recently started reading a book by Stephen King on the art of writing (fascinating book by the way, all aspiring writers should read it).  Several things that he talked about made a huge impact on me and so I decided to try writing something different, a short story.

I had started one a few days ago but it wasn’t flowing the way I wanted it to and since I country sleep tonight I decided to give it another go, putting into practice some of the things I learned from Mr. King.

I started off by re-reading what I had already written in order to get the juices flowing.  What I ended up with was a 3 page semi-horror story.  I’ve decided that it would be the perfect thing to put out for halloween, which is great because that gives me time to get approval from the person that the main character of based on and mayhaps get in an edit or two.

I am pleased with what I’ve come up with so far and am excited to share it with everyone, so I had to give you all a little teaser about it. Hope you don’t mind and stayi tuned for that and other short stories to come!

About Ms Fihaki

Thanks so much for checking out my blog! I’m supposed to write about me – who I am as a person and I really don’t see the sense in that considering that when you read my posts you will learn more about me as a person than you would from any 500 word statement I could make. I will however play by the rules – just this once. I’m 36 years young. I consider myself a strong independant and beautiful woman (hey! I wrote about that! Check it out!). I’m single and love it. Just over a year ago I made some serious lifestyle changes which include eliminating alcohol from my diet, being more physically active, eating healthier and daily working on my spirituality. One of the things which has happened as a result of these lifestyle changes is that I’ve gained a level of clarity I never knew was possible. With this clarity comes the realization that my words affect the lives of those around me. I’ve always been much better at writing than at speaking. If I can affect people the way I do from speaking, just imagine the effect I can have with the written word! I had been blogging about my secret life doing sensual massage – but I wasn’t getting a lot of traffic or interraction from that blog. Upon the suggestion of several friends I decided to start this – my public blog. My hope is that this will allow my readers to interact with me, a real live human being and that together we can create a ripple effect of positivity throughout the universe! (yea I dream big – it’s a must!) Anywho – I sincerely hope you enjoy the things I have to say and interractions are welcome and encouraged! Be Well!
