It’s only the beginning – my new novel

#coffeeandwriting

It is that time again when you begin a new novel. It is one of the most exciting times; plotting the story and deciding on characters. My first novella, A Love to Remember has been my most popular and thousands of my readers have been asking me for a sequel. Instead of doing this I have some EXCITING NEWS – no sequel but instead a saga. Lucy Pembrooke’s life story spanning three generations of her family. Instead of a novella, a rather large novel.

These questions from one of my reviews and many more will be answered.

I really hope Lynda Gray does a book two because I still have so many questions. I want to know how Thomas reacted? I want to know if Loretta and Tobias stay married, and of course I want to know what happens with Lucy, Christian and how her girls react to the newness of everything! Great job Lynda”

Inside the Creative Mind – Staying focused.

Inside the Creative Mind – Did you know Pablo Picasso painted over 50,000 works of art throughout his lifetime? However, we only know of a few masterpieces. Did you know that Tom Clancy said, “An overnight success is ten years in the making.”

The next time the media says, “A creative person was an overnight success.” Remember this is most probably a ‘myth.’ They would have been creating since childhood, or learning or daydreaming or thinking and connecting the dots.

To become great at creating one must keep creating, take risks and stay focused.

“Jonathan Livingston Seagull” by Richard Bach

Every time I see a Seagull walking alone  on the beach away from its flock, I think of this wonderful story I read over ten years ago. What a beautiful dedication Richard makes at the beginning of the story:

“To the real Jonathan Seagull, who lives within us all.”
