  1. The storms go spinning one by one Hoo-ah, hoo-ah The storms go spinning one by one Hoo-ah, hoo-ah The storms go spinning one by one The little one stops. A shear to its top! And they all go spinning, swirling Around the globe To stir up The ether.
  2. Our job in this lifetime is not to shape ourselves into some ideal we imagine we ought to be, but to find out who we already are and become it. Pressfield, Steven. The War of Art (p. 146). Black Irish Entertainment LLC. Kindle Edition. I believe this quote summarizes the intent of the book. The writer's perspective is a bit New Age-y. The war is (in my words) the war between flesh and spirit, or (in the author's words) between the ego and the self. End of book report.😉
  3. I'm about half-way through the book. According to the author Resistance (capitalized as a named force) is procrastination, distraction, delay, etc. that war against our calling. I'm still waiting for the author to give the strategy to win the war and follow the dream. I hope, by the end of the book, to learn something.😏
  4. I just started reading "The War of Art"; here's an interesting quote: "Rule of thumb: The more important a call or action is to our soul's evolution, the more Resistance we will feel toward pursuing it." Pressfield, Steven. The War of Art (p. 12). Black Irish Entertainment LLC. Kindle Edition.
  5. I am happy to have stirred something up! 😉 To me it's not really a big issue, but since I noticed it, I brought it up.
  6. I can see my own, of course. I just can’t see anyone else’s. I have google chrome browser on a laptop pc.
  7. I'm curious about the "about me" part of the profile. I wrote a short blurb, thinking others might want to know more about me. Just recently, I thought I would look up other people's profiles, but the about me portion is not visible. I'm not real tech-y, so maybe I'm missing something.
  8. This sounds fascinating; it's a good intro. I would love to beta read for you. I'm learning to beta read and edit, so I hope you have several responses. You will want to compare comments, and note particularly when multiple people make the same comment.
  9. Happy to have you! (also from Florida; WPB)
  10. I agree; fireflies are great as long as they don't look like "bugs" 😏; multiples lit up would probably work
  11. I meant please don't use the bug.... When I re-read my comment, it came off wrong.
  12. I like the similarity with the previously published book (but could you not use something that looks like a roach- they fly in Florida....) Maybe the ashes idea could suggest something else.... maybe a match flame .... I loved the first story, but of course don't know the content of this sequel.
  13. I read the story; I like fantasy and I like mystery. This is a fun read for adults as well as the middle-grade target audience.
