Guest Post: "Passion Frees Our Soul, Feeds Our Characters"


Anna Simpson is here to share about passion in her work, and about her new book.

Thanks, Mark. It’s a pleasure to be here.
Have you ever been called over dramatic?
Funny because that phrase has followed me throughout life. It wasn’t until I took up writing where these raw feelings came in handy. It’s like a superpower. To use it for good it must written, capturing the passion.
It pushed me to leave home early and explore the world. I didn’t get far—just to Vancouver, Kelowna, Oliver and home again. No matter where I went people were the same. They loved, hated, struggled, and thrived.
Meeting them marked me.
Some say that putting passion in your work feeds your characters and brings them to life. It also frees the author. My characters can do whatever it takes to get rid of their nightmares, or baggage. Through them, so do I. Like I said it’s therapeutic.
Where do you put your passion? Tell me I’d love to know.

About the Author:

Anna Simpson lives near the Canadian-US border with her family. Even though she’s lived in several places in British Columbia, her free spirit wasn’t able to settle down until she moved back to her hometown.
She is easy to find though, if you know the magic word — emaginette. Do an internet search using it and you’ll see what I mean. :-)

IWSG and "Wellness Weds" w/ the Really Real Housewives


It’s Insecure Writer’s Support Group today, led by the steamed Alex J. Cavanaugh (so much healthier than frying him…)
This month’s insecurity is an “easy” one. I’ve made it a goal to finish two half-written WIPs this year.
That’s it. Simple.
But will it happen... ???
Continuing from Monday, I'm guest posting today and Friday with the Really Real Housewives.

The Housewives are Tara Tyler, Liz Seckman and Ashley Chappell, and several months ago, they came up with a great idea of sharing their life experiences in a fun environment.

My post today is based upon the idea of Wellness Wednesday, (or trying to stay healthy as the weekend is nearly here!)

Let the 2016 Smile Challenge Begin...


I'm simply excited to get the New Year off to a smilingly excellent beginning...

I so don't need any stinking teeth to be cute :)

It's freezing, but I'm a boy. Cold does me no harm!
I'm just the best superhero ever. Why not smile!

The Angels went on to beat the Evil Empire in this ALCS playoff :)


Ok, maybe not everyone is smiling, but Pooh Bear's girlfriend *will* laugh :)

You go ahead and *Grab* those rays, son :)

...Wishing you and yours the *very* best for 2016.
May all your writing and non-writing dreams come true :)
