Summary

Building a Tough Writer's Shell 
A Motivational & Inspirational Guide for Writers 
 
There you sit, glaring at the computer screen, struggling to string words together, desiring to move your novel forward. Nothing's coming. Craving perhaps for a few phrases to pen. Maybe a full chapter. You want your words to resonate, infiltrate your reader to leave a long-lasting impression. 
But you're still stuck on an empty page. 
Well, perfect settings to write are not always there so you need to deal with it. Don't worry. In "I've Searched But I Can't Find Ideas" chapter you'll encounter inspirational help to spark an idea or two. 
Characters speak to you internally, wanting their stories penned, but motivation disappears by negative forces outside of your control. Most of the time, those controls exist within yourself, and knowing how to deal with them will help keep the focus on your goal plans. 
This book is a motivational push-you-forward adventure where I add humor to realistic situations you, as a writer, may find yourself in. Along the way, you'll learn a thing or two to nudge your writing in the right direction, to prepare your writer's skin and toughen you out. 
It will motivate you, help you focus, but most of all, will inspire you not to give up your passion for writing when confronted by negative energy, times when you're not up to creating, pushing your work into a folder and locking it away to collect dust in a drawer. 
All that's required is to: 
1.remember your passion, 
2.push yourself forward every day, 
3.never stop dreaming, 
4.ignore naysayers, 
5.keep passion, determination, perseverance in the forefront at all times, 
6.continue educating and improving your writing, 
7.but most of all…commit to do your best. 
 
Keep writing!

    All About Love - New Visions

    The acclaimed first volume in feminist icon bell hooks' "Love Song to the Nation,”  All About Love is a revelation about what causes a polarized society and how to heal the divisions that cause suffering. Here is the truth about love, and inspiration to help us instill caring, compassion, and strength in our homes, schools, and workplaces. 
    “The word ‘love’ is most often defined as a noun, yet we would all love better if we used it as a verb,” writes bell hooks as she comes out fighting and on fire in All About Love. Here, at her most provocative and intensely personal, renowned scholar, cultural critic and feminist bell hooks offers a proactive new ethic for a society bereft with lovelessness--not the lack of romance, but the lack of care, compassion, and unity. People are divided, she declares, by society’s failure to provide a model for learning to love.  
    As bell hooks uses her incisive mind to explore the question “What is love?” her answers strike at both the mind and heart. Razing the cultural paradigm that the ideal love is infused with sex and desire, she provides a new path to love that is sacred, redemptive, and healing for individuals and for a nation. The Utne Reader declared bell hooks one of the “100 Visionaries Who Can Change Your Life.” All About Love is a powerful, timely affirmation of just how profoundly her revelations can change hearts and minds for the better.

    A collection of death dreams and ghost stories were gathered and presented to C.G. Jung and the author, who approaches this fascinating material from the depths of her analytic experience. 
     
    “… among the Swiss, who are commonly regarded as stolid, unimaginative, rationalistic and materialistic, there are just as many ghost stories and suchlike as, say, in England or Ireland. Indeed, as I know from my own experience … magic as practiced in the Middle Ages … has by no means died out, but still flourishes today … 
    I can recommend it to all those who know how to value things that break through the monotony of daily life with salutary effects, (sometimes!) shaking our certitudes and lending wings to the imagination.” – from the Foreword by C.G. Jung 
     
    We are left in the overpowering presence of a great mystery.

    From the bestselling author of A More Beautiful Question, hundreds of big and small questions that harness the magic of inquiry to tackle challenges we all face--at work, in our relationships, and beyond. 
      
    When confronted with almost any demanding situation, the act of questioning can help guide us to smart decisions. By asking questions, we can analyze, learn, and move forward in the face of uncertainty. But "questionologist" Warren Berger says that the questions must be the right ones; the ones that cut to the heart of complexity or enable us to see an old problem in a fresh way. 
      
    In The Book of Beautiful Questions, Berger shares illuminating stories and compelling research on the power of inquiry. Drawn from the insights and expertise of psychologists, innovators, effective leaders, and some of the world's foremost creative thinkers, he presents the essential questions readers need to make the best choices when it truly counts, with a particular focus in four key areas: decision-making, creativity, leadership, and relationships. 
      
    The powerful questions in this book can help you: 
    -        Identify opportunities in your career or industry 
    -        Generate fresh ideas in business or in your own creative pursuits 
    -        Check your biases so you can make better judgments and decisions 
    -        Do a better job of communicating and connecting with the people around you 
      
    Thoughtful, provocative, and actionable, these beautiful questions can be applied immediately to bring about change in your work or your everyday life.
