The Left Turn Novel

If your past VANISHED . . . Who might you become?

Hannah, a forty-six year old author plagued with anxiety, and her partner James, an HR recruiter caught in a headlock of grief over his brother’s death, are as desperate for inner peace as they are clueless about how to find it.

But will they be able to let go of their deeply ingrained subconscious beliefs about life and themselves to embrace the unfamiliar potentials they now face?

Musings on the mysteries of the universe and this thing we call reality—join me on the playground of wonder!

The Big Bang—Literaturely

From the first time I read that the universe is expanding some years back, I imagined some dark outer space edge of chaos and nothingness into which the stars and zero point field are racing forward. Not that I could actually picture what that nothingness might be. One can’t really imagine nothing; it is, I believe, impossible to imagine nothing.

But for some reason I was pondering a comment I heard on a webinar about blogging for authors about how a million new books are published each year. Whether that is an accurate number or not is completely irrelevant to my point. What occurred to me is how authors and playwrights—or shall I call us story and content creators—are thinking up stories and characters and concepts ALL the time.

Bang! It hit me like the big one one—the Big Bang, that is: each creative thought, each new story and character, expands the universe. It’s not an external thing happening “out there” somewhere—or probably something is also happening “out there.” But it’s happening—well, not really anywhere but sort of everywhere. No spacial definition is relevant. And we’re all doing it. We’re all creating all the time through our thoughts and words and actions—actually a combo of all three.  So it’s no wonder the universe is expanding fast—externally and internally! BANG!

Is it Fiction or is it “Real”?

I love playing at the edge of reality. How do we define reality? What do we use as our measures of what is real or what is not? What is Fiction and just how different is it actually from NonFiction? If this is the kind of play space you also enjoy, then let’s hang out together and swing from the monkey bars of time and jump the hopscotch drawing of parallel universes!
