Dear Writing I’ve Missed You – A Letter To My Love Of My Life – A Writing Poem From My Soul


 

Asexual Perspectives print book
Author Sandra Bellamy With Her Asexual Perspectives Paperback Book

Happy to say that I have an extra Asexual Sex Story for my Asexual Guide To Sex book and all next month my main focus is finishing writing this book. Which will be my second for asexuals.

Writing will always, always, always be the love of my life. I want to write a letter here to my love of my life.

Dear writing I’ve missed you.
I’ve missed you so much, I want to kiss you.
Without you in my life, I feel like I am dying,
And right now I am crying.

I am trying to do the ‘right thing’,
I am trying to do what should bring,
Well you know, the big M thing,
But dear writing you are the only thing,
Academic wise,
That makes me come alive,
You are the one thing,
That never tires,
And the one thing I never, ever despise.

Writing is like setting your soul free,
It’s the ONLY way in my opinion,
You can ever leave a true, lasting legacy,

It’s the only way you can truly change the world,
You can light up another’s life,
And make them see,
That all the truth and power,
Lies within thee.

Dear writing I have missed you,
I truly want to kiss you,
You are my heart and soul,
And without you I am dying inside,
If truth be told.

So what happens when we are not doing what we are suppose to be,
Is our body reacts, involuntary,
It shakes us up and makes us see,
We aren’t fulfilling our true destiny,

God, the universe, the powers that be,
Show you the dangers of not living your destiny,
They give you pain, they induce the worst,
To say what the heck do you think you are doing, Why are you not giving your body what it wants and needs,
And denying it’s thirst.

See you may think writing is just that,
But when you truly listen to your soul,
You know it’s far more than that,
When you deny yourself to use the gift you were born with,
Or you denying it, in favour of another it,
It’s like losing a best friend over and over again,
It’s like agony and then some again.

Your body will go crazy,
Your spirit will feel more lazy,
You heart will pine for something you are denying it,
And all for what?
To conform and fit in?

Maybe this was never your intention,
But maybe subconsciously, that’s what you forgot to mention,
Maybe you need to stop denying your body, heart and mind the truth,
And that is, your writing is living proof,
Of exactly why you were put on this earth,
So please go back to it, and live your full worth.

Go back to the joy that you once new,
And connect with that disconnect,
Your soul and body will thank you.

See you never really left it and me and you know this,
But when you think about it, you body is in a mess,
But it’s nothing you can’t fix.

Because within your body, soul, and mind,
You need to have the courage to know this is my time,
Other things can wait,
But this can’t.

Because you need help,
Others need your help,
And the only way to fix this,
Isn’t by doing what others do,
It’s to look after precious you.

It’s about standing up for what you truly believe in,
For taking a stand and not trying to fit in,
It’s about working hard at what you truly love to do,
It’s about reaching for the stars, the light and the moon,
It’s about getting your best friend back and healing you,
It’s about reaching out to your writing and taking it by the hand and singing Grease Lightening,
It’s about remembering the heart and soul of you,
And that writing is you and at the heart of what you do.

It’s about living your life, fulfilling your own purpose and destiny,
It’s about taking charge of your life and living your truth with passion and vigour,
It’s about being you, Sandra Bellamy the writer,
And loving what you do.

It’s about knowing no other occupation will do,
Because writing is your life, it’s your heart, its about you.

When I say it’s about you, you know it’s designed to help others too.

You went through shit,
And you got through it,
You needed that to happen,
To write about it.

You needed to have lived life,
The rough with the smooth,
Now go ahead again,
And prove them wrong.

Be who you are truly born to be,
Don’t hold back,
Don’t come from a place of want and need,
Don’t come from a place of lack.

For when I think about writing,
There is a joy within my heart,
Like nothing I ever feel again,
Nothing ever comes close to this piece of me,
That’s why I have to fulfil my writing destiny.

I want to thank you God and the powers that be,
For manifesting chaos and pain within me,
Because I know you want me to see the truth,
No one and nothing can heal me, but my own self.

So I am going back to writing more,
To blogging,
And opening up my writing door,
And if I have to leave other plans behind I will,
But I think that maybe, just maybe, it’s been about writing all along,
Because I don’t do a business in which I can’t sell books,
I don’t just do a business and this I overlook,
It’s always in the back of my mind,
How can I help more people, using my writing shine!

But right now more than ever, I need to help me,
Because by helping myself, I will always help others you see,
They will always go hand-in-hand for me,
And that’s why I need to fulfil my writing destiny.

I noticed I just used the word need,
But when I use that word in the context of writing,
It’s a need within my soul,
It’s a thirst within my heart,
And I have been denying it more of late,
To focus on other things and make this wait.

No more will writing wait for me, it’s fighting back in my mind,
And telling me to fulfil my destiny,
It’s longing and it’s missing me,
When all is lost and gone,
Writing will still be with me.

So close the doors and shut your eyes,
Getting back to what you love and come fully back alive.
Go back to living and being beautiful you. Loving truly what you love to do.

Get your writing best friend back,
No longer have this lack,
Go grab it now and end it’s sorrow,
Dance with it in the moonlight,
And no longer will you need to borrow,
Short term happiness,
But you will get that writing friend back and put an end to this madness.

For one perfect month, I want you to focus at least,
On your writing joy,
And having a writing feast,
On getting back to the true love of your life,
Who has always been by your side.

Instead of leaving your writing best friend,
To fend for itself,
And be behind you,
Waiting from afar,
I want you to join hands once again, and live in writing bliss and harmony,
Focusing on your destiny.

Because when all is said and done,
And you look back at your life, and you are almost gone,
You will go with a happiness inside of you,
That you lived your true authentic life,
You did what YOU do,
And your legacy will live on.

 

It’s great to be back with you. Missed blogging and writing so much xx

How to Build Credibility As a Non-Fiction Author and Become An Expert!


How to become an author authority

How to Build Non-Fiction Author Credibility and Become An Expert!

So many people can call themselves a writer and there is nothing wrong with that if they are writing – You become a professional writer when you have something published and get paid for your work.

So to be able to write good books is one thing, but to be able to build credibility as a non-fiction author and expert in your subject matter is another. Sometimes they go hand-in-hand and other times they don’t.

As a writer of a good book that people want to read, you have to:

  1. Know your subject matter and/or have researched your subject matter, or pay someone to do that research on your behalf!
  2. Be good at English language and Literature – or have a fabulous editor who will mop up your mistakes and put them right.
  3. Or interview people who have knowledge, insight, and experience, of your subject matter.
  4. Good book formatting.

To build credibility as an Author and Expert in your subject matter, you have to:

  1. Have personal experience of your subject matter.
  2. Know your subject matter with research being an optional extra, not an (or) instead of!
  3. Be good at English language and Literature – or have a fabulous editor who will mop up your mistakes and put them right.
  4. If interviewing people for your book, you must interview people who have knowledge, insight, and experience of your subject matter, in comparison/contrast to your own.
  5. Good book formatting.
  6. Be interviewed on your subject matter for other publications, these can be both online or offline, such as magazine articles.
  7. Do other work in your subject matter.
  8. Have a blog or vlog about your subject matter.
  9. Been seen across a wide range of social media with your blog posts, vlogs, articles, that show off your expertise and knowledge in your subject matter.
  10. Have social media profiles related to your subject matter.
  11. Have a Facebook business page in your subject matter.
  12. Run a Facebook group around your subject matter.
  13. Write and publish more books in your subject matter.

I hope you can now see the difference.

As a writer of good book that people want to read without the personal expertise, you can still flourish as a writer and Author if your marketing is good. I know of people who make a good living from paying others to ghost write or do research for them – so far I have not tried this! I like writing from personal experience. But this is one method of earning a living from books that some people choose to do – pay someone to write it for them! And they do it with hot niche topics.

Have you ever paid someone to write a book for you, or portions of your book? And if so, did it do better than your own books of which the subject matter you are an expert? Or did it not sell nearly as much? Please post your answers in the comments below so we can all learn from each other.

As always, stay quirky and write soon

Free Your Books!


Free your books

I love this quote so much. Have you considered that your books may be imprisoned by you if you haven’t opened them for such a long time? Do you feel like your books are real, with a secret life of their own? And just like the film Toy Story, in which the toys come to life, your books come to life! If your books could talk to you, what do you think they would be saying to you right now? Please comment below!

What your Book Genre says about YOU:

Literary Fiction – Deep thinker. Problem solver. Open minded – Easily relatable to everyone around you.

Fantasy/Sci-Fi – Imaginative. Escapist. Thrill Seeker. Witty. Daydreamer. Somewhat of a loner but has a good group of Friends.

All Genres – Overall well-rounded. Easy going. Open to new foods, new adventures, new people. For the most part, you are positive and fun to be around.


Even though I don’t read romance or write it (I mostly write non-fiction), I am hugely romantic in my personality, so I relate to that genre personality really well – how about you? Do you think these are accurate or not?

As always, until next time, stay quirky and write soon.

INSPIRATIONAL QUOTES FOR BOOKSTORE LOVERS! HOW MUCH DO YOU LOVE YOUR BOOKSTORE?


Book Store Lover

I know some people who absolutely love bookstores and just can’t get enough of them, it’s like they are a baby in a huge playpen full of their favourite toys, their eyes light up and they are instantly lost in a world full of magic, mystery, wonder, excitement and fantasy! Is this you? Can you relate? (Comment below if you can!)

As a writer who is slow to read, I tend to only read the types of books I like to write – which is predominately non-fiction, self-help, how-to books. So I am not so enthused about going into bookstores, I prefer to just get a book when I need it, and I usually buy it from Amazon, which is where I sell my own Quirky Books.

What do you think about bookstores? How much do you love your local bookstore?

Until next time, stay quirky and write soon.

Book Quotes For Writers And Book Lovers! Why The Books I Write Are My Best Friends!


Book Quotes.blog-post-image

As a Writer and Author, I often feel like some of the books I write are my bestest friends, because just like a best friendship, I spend so long working on them and with them. My books know my secrets, and sometimes they even pass some of those onto others, but there are many secrets and parts of my life that they never share, because of the difficult experiences I went through when I wrote them that are personal to me. My books helped me to get through those difficult times, without revealing to the public what happened. They listen to me and raise me up when I am at my worst and they educate me when they speak of their own free will of expression. My Break Through The Barriers Of Redundancy book took me two and a half years to write and it really got me through some difficult times in my life and I will always be very thankful and grateful to it for that.

I sometimes think that books are the magic of life and I still think that, but I believe you can create your own magic in life and you can make dreams come true! I know I have made a lot of my own dreams come true in life, and I still strive to do that every single day of my life! If you want to be in a horse drawn carriage, you can hire one! If you want to have your own castle, you can build one. If you want to be a princess or prince, you can be the prince or princess of your own life, you can buy the outfit, learn out how act like one or be a quirky prince or princess, and even change your name to include prince or princess! (You’re tempted, I know). I have a dress that I call my princess dress, because I feel like it is one, and I feel like a Disney Princess in it!

Have you ever felt that the books you write or read are your best friends?

How do you create magic in your own life?

Which quote do you resonate with the most?

Please comment below – I love to know what you think?

As always, stay quirky.
