Riding Storms and Other Musings

Writing books has flow and meaning.

Lightning shivers my timbers, literally, since I live on a boat, in Florida, the lightning capital of the world. Storms, big ones, are a great way to disengage your ego and relax into your role as part of a greater whole. Once the big flashy stuff passes, the healing rain falls, the world slips into peace, and for the greenery gasping from the heat, rebirth.

Writing is often a mirror of a thunderstorm. A grand idea, building and knocking the words around, gives way to a softer editing, a chance to soak in the sensory, savor the expansion in scenes to make them jump off the page. In creativity, the lightning and thunder carve the bones of a book, but the rain, the gentle filling of spaces, give the book meaning and value.

In the aftermath of the launch for Boogie Beach, I’m letting the storm drive Book 3, and resting in the rain. Stay well, create big.

Boogie beach is on Amazon, Apple, and other retailers.

Winnie Winkle is a fabulous Central Florida broad who swills bourbon, likes dogs and cats, and practices yoga, but not with any degree of grace. Supporting live local music is a pretty big deal to Winnie, so if you pass a gravestone that admonishes, 'Go see the band and hit the tip jar', it's probably hers. But, since she's not dead yet, she'll keep penning fun stuff to rock your reading chair A 30 plus year Florida resident, she splits her time between Daytona Beach Shores and the Mount Dora areas. She prefers writing beach-side as much as she can because, if we’re baring our souls here, the ocean is a mighty muse and one can only expect so much from coffee. Winnie is most active on Facebook, so come say hello!
