The Key to Success is Keep Moving Forward


Never look back

 

Are you looking back at your past achievements or looking forward?

I woke up this morning in a bit of a creative funk. I know this is my muse nudging me to get writing. I cringe and whisper to her that I am too tired. She just laughs and pinches me.

It’s easy as a writer to look in the past at all of your achievements instead of looking forward. You’ve got to keep moving forward and keep writing.

Stephen King never sat on his past books and said, “Well, I wrote all those books and can retire.” No way! He keeps writing new books and creating new monsters for me to fear. ;-)

This applies to life too. Never look back and always search out new ideas. It’s only when we stop moving that we stop chasing our dreams. :)

Princess of the Light Character Interview: Joe Deacons


Interview

Today I am thrilled to have Joe Deacons from Princess of the Light sit down for an interview. He is an urban planner for the city of Golden Lake and the love interest of Mary aka Princess of the Light. Take it away Joe…

Thank you, MRS N. Let me be the first to tell you readers how thankful I am to be a part of this story. I am not sure how or why I was chosen but I am so thankful. The moment I laid eyes on Mary, I knew she was special. She glowed from within and I was immediately drawn to her. Little did I know what was in store for the both of us.

Let me tell you a little bit about me since you can’t see me in person. My name is Joseph Deacons and I just turned 33 years old today. Yes, it’s my birthday. I have dark hair, green eyes, medium build and a killer smile. Just kidding, I am an urban planner for Golden Lake and right now I’m trying to complete a project for the city that is close to my heart. I am the youngest son of Alfred and Marie Deacons and have an older brother, Edward. I come from a wealthy family but have made a name for myself through hard work and dedication.

  • What do you consider your greatest achievement?

My greatest achievement has been stepping away from my father’s law practice and becoming an urban planner. It was one of the hardest things I have ever done and trust me, it wasn’t easy. There were plenty of screaming matches between me and the old man. But I had my mother to guide me and I did it. Now, my father is very proud and boasts to all of his friends how I went my own way. *chuckles*

  • What is your idea of perfect happiness?

Simply, spending my life with Mary. She is perfection and I am the luckiest man on Earth.

  • What is your most treasured possession?

I have a first edition of A Movable Feast by Ernest Hemingway. I love books and I have a terrific library.

  • What or who is the greatest love of your life?

Mary.

  • What is your most marked characteristic?

Ronnie tells me that it is my hundred watt smile; it has been known to melt the iciest of women.

  • What is it that you most dislike?

I dislike it when people find out who my father is and assume I am a spoiled rich person. I worked really hard to get where I am.

  • What is your greatest fear?

Losing Mary. When we were thrust into an impossible situation, my fear of losing her reared its ugly head. We fought and it almost cost us our lives. I still have that fear but I know she can handle anything thrown her way. She is amazing and I love her more than I ever have loved anyone.

  • What is your greatest regret?

Falling for a gold digger like Leslie. I couldn’t see past her beautiful face and I learned a valuable lesson.

  • Which talent would you most like to have?

I would love to sing. I’m horrible at it and can’t carry a tune.

  • What is the quality you most like in a woman?

Honesty. There isn’t a bigger turn-off for me than a woman who lies.

  • What is the trait you most deplore in others?

I absolutely hate people who think they are better than others by their station in life. Just because you have money and a nice house doesn’t give you the right to look down your nose at others. We are all the same in the eyes of the Light.

  • Which living person do you most admire?

I admire my friend, Ronnie. After the death of his parents, he went to culinary school and is now the owner of a five star restaurant. He laughs at me when I tell him how much I wish I had his strength. I don’t know if I could be as successful if I was in his shoes.

  • What do you consider the most overrated virtue?

Beauty. The world is full of beautiful people, according to Hollywood standards. Are they living happy, fulfilled lives? True beauty comes from within and reflects outward. I’ve seen some gorgeous people filled with the Light and have seen some ugly attractive people who are filled with darkness.

Thank you for spending time with me today. Please take a moment and buy Princess of the Light e-book. You’ll be donating to food banks to help people like the Walking Man and you’ll get to find out more about my and Mary’s story. I must go now as Mary is going to be taking me out for my birthday. Wonder if Than will show up. I really must banish him one of these days.

Make Someone Smile Today and Pass It On!!!


Make Someone Smile

When was the last time you went about your day with the intent of making people laugh and/or smile?

I tried to remember and I am embarrassed to say I couldn’t remember. Life is filled with busy events and the non-ending to-do list. I try to be kind but it’s been a long time since I had my focus being to make someone smile and/or laugh.  That changes today and here is why.  I was watching the PIX11 news this morning and they showed this video of a man high fiving New Yorkers:

 

I laughed so hard that I almost fell out of my chair!! The reactions from the people hailing a cab are priceless.  Watch it again and watch the pure joy in the bushy man’s face. It’s infectious!

Today, take a moment and make someone smile.  It could be a hug, kind word, compliment or smile. Tell a funny joke. Make someone smile today and they will pass it on.

Spread the Light!

Caregiver Quotes and Tips – Asking for Help | by Linda Brendle


MRS N, the Author:

My friend Linda has some excellent tips on her blog for caregivers. I love this blog post and it applies to us all! Don’t go it alone! Ask for help! :) MRS N

Originally posted on Life After Caregiving:

Asking for help

Caregiving is a lonely job, but it doesn’t have to be. I’m not sure if it’s the pride of thinking no one can care for your loved one but you, or if it’s the guilt of feeling like you are shirking your duties if you take a break. Either way, too many caregivers try to shoulder the huge burden of caring all by themselves.

Mistakes Do NOT Define Your Self-Worth


 

Mistakes

Everyone makes mistakes. As human beings, we are bound to make mistakes.  I had a friend of mine ask me the other day if I regretted self-publishing. I shook my head and said no.

“Don’t you feel less of a writer? Don’t you wish you had been published by one of the big five?”

I paused for a full minute before replying. “No,” I started. “The publishing industry is changing and more people are self-publishing than ever before. They are taking creative control over their book and it is empowering. Sure, it is more work to market your book but it is worth it.  I was inspired to write Princess of the Light and to share it with the world.  I am all about feeding the hungry and spreading the Light, not selling a zillion copies.”

We then moved onto other topics but it got me thinking.  There is this stigma about self-published authors and it is a pity. No matter what avenue a book takes, it should deserve the same opportunities. Equal opportunity reading, that’s my policy as a reader.

As a writer, I have made some mistakes. Do I regret them? Sure I do but they don’t define me as a person or as a writer.  Each mistake taught me a valuable lesson and I am a better writer for it.

You have make mistakes too. Don’t let your mistakes define you!  You are a beautiful person with the Light shining within you! Learn from your mistakes and don’t repeat them! Your actions define you!

Spread the Light!

Exciting News for N. N. Light!!!


N N Light Editing Button

Remember this morning when I told you about seizing the opportunities that come along? Well, I had a huge opportunity come knocking on my door last weekend and I grabbed on with both hands.  A lovely woman by the name of Kayelle Allen was advertising she was hiring editors for her business, The Author’s Secret. I asked her casually about some details.  We exchanged emails and by the end of the day, I was hired as an editor.  I was so excited I danced around the living room for a full two minutes!

I talked it over with MR N and he told me what a wonderful opportunity this is!  Kayelle is an artist herself and she told me I could freelance too. So, I have started N. N. Light Editing.  Like the logo?

With the expansion of self and indie publishing, writers need professional editors.  Why hire me? I am professional, authentic and kind.  I offer competitive prices and I love helping writers achieve their dreams of being published.  I am also a published author who understands what it means to have a vision.  I want to make your book shine like the Hope Diamond and together we will make a great team.
