All About Jem

Jem is my lovable and favourite characters who just loves to jump in and out of different times as far as languages are concerned. One minute he will be in the times of the Old Middle Ages, and the next he will be twinkling along in the current times. It is the word, as far as he is concerned. The word is everything. The word is what was at the beginning. It is the closing argument. It is the whole of everything that matters. it is what it is. Well, simply – I.

Jem is my leader, my hero, my friend, my confidante and so much more. He is as old as the oldest star in the oldest galaxy in the oldest universe. Or is it the other way around? I always am confused regarding galaxies and universes. As near as i can fathom, a galaxy is within a universe which is somehow within a cosmos. It is all very confusing. You’d think I would know all about this as I am in communication with my Spirit Guides and Angels on a daily basis, however they don’t tell me everything, saying that is not your path. So beit, i say.

Back to Jem. He has travelled the length, and breadth and depth of all of the Cosmos put together. He is as old as the oldest galaxy, universe, cosmos and what ever else is bigger than any of those. He is, simply, Jem. God of all, Creator of All. All is what he knows and he keeps a pretty tight reign on everything that happens within his energy reign. At the end of the day, he is the first one standing and the last one standing. He is the Apha and Omega of  his Quatrain, he sector of the Cosmos, Universe, and Galaxy and then some.

He has arrived at the letter N and as such, is busily thinking and planning the next “Earth”. This time around he is planning on calling it Narramine. Of course all the basics are done, he just needs to tweak a few strings here and there and then Voila! Earth shall be formed. He is so adept at it now that he creates what he needs and leaves them for a few trillion years or so until he is ready. Now it is Narramine’s time to come to fruition and through the Genesis Factor. All in good time though.

First he must get over his terrible headache to that which he has awakened. It is a loud, very loud and constant pounding in his head. It feels like there is a little man inside his head beating the huge drum over and over again. He remembers that there were drummers on the old land. They used to beat out words and he used to know their secret language. In between pounding, he tries to listen to find out what this pounding is telling him. In the end, he realises that it is just his headache. That nothing will cure it better than some of his favourite drink…..


Dear God, I want to live forever!

On our way up to Ettalong Markets this morning, I actually managed to stay awake to have something of a conversation with Greg. Not only that, we talked mostly about writing. My writing, his ideas and other people’s writing. Namely, books we had both read and enjoyed.

Then the topic turned around to me, personally “You’re like Beethoven with so many books half written and never finished” he said to me. “For someone who was once so good in business and had such good focus, now you’re flitting from one thing to another!” he continued.

My mind was reeling. All the ideas we discussed on the way up…how could he possibly know that I had that story line in one or two of my books. “Yes! Yes! That one two is in another of my books. Yes, that’s right and then it goes on….” I blabbed out aloud without thinking. The stories running rough-shod over my brain to the point of headache. It was bad enough I was having trouble hearing again (I really must investigate the idea of hearing aids soon!), but now he was accusing me of having all these stories started and not finished. “Well what am I supposed to do when I get another absolutely fantastical idea for a book?” I wailed. “You told me I should write my ideas down, so I do” I tried to justify

“Ahhhh” came the long drawn out voice of wisdom which was becoming all too familiar to me in recent years.”write the idea down, BUT” he looked across to me as he was driving “DON’T start the book!” he nodded and finished with “COMPRE?” If I had heard this word once, I had heard it a million times already. “ok” I whispered feeling dejected.

“It’s just that I have so many ideas and they come to me at odd times” I wasn’t trying to justify now, only to explain the way my writing came to me. “You know that I have to have a notebook and pen with me at all times, or I lose it. Sometimes, I resort to making another note on my phone.” he looked at me with twinkle eyes that said “I know honey, but you’re going to have to learn sooner or later”

“GyRRrrrrrr” I growled! I’m not a child anymore! I’m just crazy and mixed up and get all these ideas at the weirdest times and I have to get them all out of my system when they happen, or else I will go CRAzyyyyyyyyy!

Ilm like the kid in a lolly shop with all these delicious, delectable, tasty treats all around me and my head is reeling because I don’t know which one to devour first. Greg says I should try them out, but not ALL! He says to find one you like and eat that one – until it is FINISHED! But DON’T put all the treats in your mouth at once. “ok” I again whispered feeling dejected.

I was thinking if I made a pact with The Devil, much like Dorian Gray, could I live forever then? I might just get around to finishing all the books I start, much less follow on with all the ideas I have for books. Perhaps I could simply say a prayer for my wish. It would most likely start “Dear God, I want to live forever….”


Today is Book Day on Facebook

Yes, that’s right. I belong to and am administrator to the Facebook Group of Spirit Connections and today is book day once again. I have been writing all week on my WIP as well as here.

I have currently a few WIP (Works In Progress) and as i flitter and flutter from one to another I am reminded what it is to be a channel for Spirit. Much of my work is channeled through and i sit here at my humble little desk in my humble little office, often watching my fingers fly on the keyboard, or else watching the words appear on the screen while i seem to be a silent witness.

When I first began my arduous journey of “awakenings” I filled many books with my channelings. It is interesting to note, as i look at them every now and again and try to read them, that the writing differs all along the conversations. Sometimes the writing is all running without any breaks and is so small I almost need a magnifier to read it. Other writing is larger and louder, presumably to emphasise certain attitudes. All along, as i re-read these pages, i can hear the different voices in my head and know the name of each and every spirit who spoke.

Is it all channelled? Or did I hear voices in my head? Well, both questions are relevant and the answer to both is YES. Although I seem to be some tool, of recorder, like a court recorder who takes everything down on a fast dictaphone. i don’t have the luxury of a dictaphone, so I am writing or typing what ever it is that comes to me.

So all of this channelling is helping me with my various WIP. I am sometimes able to go from fantasy to history and back again. Then comes along another WIP which is more current and regarding my own personal journey from Beast Cancer. I am fortunate in that I have a long term memory. Like some people are long sighted and others are short. I am long remembered, not short. The longer I live, the more I remember.

Speaking of memories, I also have visited many of my past lives and am currently writing about these in one or two of my WIP. When will i finish these WIP? Who knows, though I continue to type away and write as though there is no tomorrow. I do know that I am planning on publishing Thymeline – book one this year, so I hope you will join me and read some of my posts regarding this book.

If you are currently writing a book, or can relate to anything I have mentioned above, please feel free to leave your comments below and share with the rest of us your little story.

Have a Blessed day everyone.


Much ado about writing

My head is crammed full of ideas, stories, poems and much more. Every day of my life since I was but a youngster crawling along the floor of our humble little home in Sydney’s Western’s Suburbs, have I been talking to myself and creating all of my stories in my head. Needless to say I had quite a good time having these conversations with no one in particular. Had I had a magical cord leading from my head to the non-existent computer I would have been grateful much later in my life. However I am very fortunate that I am able to remember most of my stories of all those years ago. (Now, am I giving my age away, or not??)
When I was a teenager my father filled my head with the idea of us winning the lottery and getting away from it all to another life-style. Back then the Opera House lottery was a large fortune and would have bought and sold our house some five times over, or more. But all he could think of was to get a new car and move to another house.

It was the other house that changed  my life forever and meant I had random conversations in my head most of every waking hour. I could not go anywhere without having a notebook, pen or pencil so I could scribble down notes, poems, or start yet another story. I remember one time we were in a rather posh restaurant in the city for lunch and I was without my most important items. Well, my mother had a pen and there was a serviette on the table, so that became my canvass for the poems (and the past life memories they invoked) that I would later type up and join with other stories. Before I got home, that serviette had multiplied to two or three of them and all were crammed with my not so notable writing. That was very important to me at the time. Unfortunately, I do not have those remarkable serviettes, though i do have all of the poems and beginnings of stories neatly tucked away in folders that have been organised by my spirit friends in my head space.

To this day I continue these conversations. I don’t have a problem with hearing voices in my head. They have been there for so long, they are a part of me. They make mie smile and laugh. They make me cry. Now I have the perfect excuse to come to my computer every day and write.


I love to write

Being a writer is fraught with many difficulties, both emotional and mentally. We can be challenged on a day to day basis. For those of us living the writing dream, well, we may feel blessed by being  a published, although mostly, it is erring along the curse boundaries.

For one thing, I must always carry a notepad and pen with me. I remember where In was a kid in primary school. Going on holidays meant that I had my special exercise book that was to journalise if not record the daily ins and outs of our journey from to end. Seeing as every holiday we ever took was fraught with its own obstacles and mini-disasters, there was much to write about. However disaster would strike me personally when I found myself bereft of a book in which to write down all the cool stuff that happened. If the mood struck me deeply enough I would throw a tantrum and not be able to be placated until I had another exercise book and or pen in my hand.

Sadly, I did not manage to keep these wonderful exercise books of my youth. Happily though, it appears that I have rather a great memory (selective though it may be) about many of these journeys and I am able to write down the pertinent facts, and fill in the details. I am putting these memories into various books of mine that are based on fact, and turning them into fiction. Oh what fun it is to ride in a great open slather of imagination!


I am Spirit Writer

As a writer, I have been doing this for so many years that I sometimes think I can communicate better with the written word than the spoken one!
But of course, no one uses a pen or quill these days. I like most other people, prefer to use the keyboard to type everything. Especially using a computer rather than the old fashioned manual typewriter I used to bash the keys with. My poor tired fingers would have to have a rest every now and again to gather some more steam.
Also back then there was this horrible stuff we called Tipex. It came in a black and white plastic bottle and would have to dry before we could overtype our typos and spelling errors, otherwise it would smudge and look terrible on the completed page.
Later came the Tipex paper which was a marvelous invention and enabled us to simply back space to the offending typo, retype the offending typo, and then go back once more to type the correct letter or word. This was so much better as there was no more drying time and the errors looked more professionally corrected.

By the mid 1980’s there care a new breed of typewriters called wordprocessors. Many of them had a one line memory, while some had a whole paragraph or even a page memory so it was easier to make changes, as well as correct typos and other errors. I had two of these electronic daisy wheel wiiz bang machines. One for the office at the shop and the other for my own private study at home. So of course, I wasted no time in typing up all of my poems I had written as a teenager along with some more recent poems. I also began, around this time, to write more short stories, and to commence writing some novels. I am still working on them today.

Finally, the age of computers came within our midst and it was in the late 1980’s that I began being able to use our then, somewhat primitive by today’s standard, though very sophisticated by those standards, Osbourne computer. I typed away and kept everything updated onto floppy diskettes. First came the 5.25″ floppies, then later when we upgraded to an IBM clone we had 3.5″ floppies (which were really mini hard drives, though colour co-ordinated) and finally I just kept everything on a hard drive and backed it up to what became known as memory sticks.

So here we are at the end of 2014 and I am looking forward to the following year of 2015. I am beginning to blog about some of my books here on this site for you to read. If you have any comments, I welcome them, critically or otherwise. You will not see the completed manuscripts here as I will save them for the book publishing. However you will see much of each book – enough to give you an idea of the gist of the story. I hope that it will fill you with a desire to purchase my book(s) to read in their entirety when completed.
