I actually had a weird dream that your book was made into a movie…and it was SUPER weird…I can’t tell you what it was about though…this was weeks ago…its almost like dejavu…how strange. It’s like you talked about it all before and I dreamed it, not sure if you ever mentioned it on here….

I have mentioned a movie, many times. Everyone who reads it thinks this. I have Venus in Leo.

The whole thing is dramatic. The characters are vivid and it’s easy to imagine them in 3-D. An actor would kill to play anyone in this damned thing.

I know for sure that someone creative can work with this stuff. I have zero doubt.

Whether someone like that reads it will be up to God or one of His agents!

I personally think it s going to be wonderful and cannot wait for it to come out. It might not be found on the best seller lists, for the right reasons…..your stories are unique and will pique the interest of those who love a good story, one that is not found in your regular genre of stories or novels. So many independently published books are so well written, but have a smaller following. I think you have a keen sense of base knowledge of things, life, situations that
is mainly inaccessible to others, which is the gift you bring to the table here with your blog. You are consistently trying to help, improve, teach, inform, etc..your forum here. I imagine Your stories will be similar , but in a book form in which folks can glean something of real life through your tragedies, unusual situations, bumblings, etc. It will be great!

Reading over the notes again, I don’t see myself as a “law-breaker” so that’s interesting. It’s like when HQ called me “trouble” – I came unglued!!!!! surprised

I do not see myself as trouble!!

@denamaria, thanks. I do see weird stuff – still.

I just wish I could quit getting my ass kicked, especially by marroons! 🙂

The other thing weird is a my stepson is an extension of my husband. They have things in common – one of those things is they are not keen to share their women.

For example, a male masseuse putting his hands on either of their wives is going to tweak them right out.

So I am dating in this book – alot. And I am sure that reading it, he was imagining his father reading it…slamming his fist into tables, which he did do.

There are just some things you can’t remark on, because you just know you can’t remark on them!

I also read the last chapter (story) last night. It made me feel good. I think it is really, really good and a reader will like it.

It will be so interesting to see what people who don’t know me at all / have any preconceived notions think of this.

I personally think it is funny as shit, but I may be sick!

All the characters have such audacity. There is really no one in this book that is not – wtf? I think that’s a lot of fun!

Yes! And he’s taking it very seriously. He will really try to get this right. He’s smart like my husband…but this is also somewhat up his alley so I am very, very fortunate.

He is asking questions. I answer:

“…You have to look in a person’s eyes, basically. You never know. The little peon kid may be smarter than you are. You just don’t know who you’re dealing with, necessarily.

There is also a lot of help in this book. I get help. There is a older woman who helps a younger one. Not all that common these days, when it is popular to savage anyone at any time…”

“I think the book is complex. There is not an agenda or a particular way I want to impact people. I guess I would feel successful if people felt something…no matter what that might be. Entertained? Maybe that they read something unusual.

I am reading “Grimm’s Grimmest” right now. The stories are very powerful. They’re compulsively readable and affecting.

I guess I think my stories are like this. I may be wrong about that, but hopefully you get the idea. I don’t have an angle or a way of thinking of being I want to promote. I am not a preacher. I am a storyteller…here are some stories for you – I hope you like them, I like writing them…”

satori is done (final edit) with Chapter 5. I think the later chapters are easier to deal with. Looks like everything is going to pop off at once!!! 🙂

I am transferring the chapters into a doc to upload. It appears the Table of Contents will be pages long. Infinite weirdness, however I don’t think it will be much fun trying to find your place (or a stopping place) in a story that is 60 or 70 pages long.

I am also reading the complete Grimm’s Fairy Tales. It is 220+ tales which is way too many for a book, yet there they are. And some of them are just one paragraph long, which can’t be right. But if the story is a paragraph long, then that’s how long that story is!

Hi Elsa,

It sounds very interesting! Did this book get published? 

I’ve missed out on a lot of posts since 2013, so I don’t know what what became of your book.
