Inspiring Mitch…

Today…Bertha…wants to spotlight…our friend…G Mitchell Baker…he’s a very talented writer…in several genres…who…just happens to have moved to our neck of the woods…so…we were able to spend the day with him…

One frequently asked question for authors is…where do you find your inspiration…but…rather than ask him that question…Bertha…decided to just pay attention…and figure it out for herself…and…it didn’t take her very long…

Interestingly…for Mitch…any and everything…seems to provide inspiration and novel lines…his main criteria is that it be original and interesting…and…we all know…that describes…life in the South…to a tee…

So…what did he find to be interesting during our outing…and what can we expect to find…nestled in his upcoming books…

Kudzu…I guess they don’t have a lot of it in…New Mexico…or…Canada…although…we could ship them a ton of it…and it would never be missed…

Tennis Shoe TreeBertha…is still petitioning to have it declared the…Eighth Wonder of the World…or at least…a shrine…

Sipsey Wilderness…could there really be areas that haven’t been inhabited for over a hundred years…

A car horn blaring on a quiet Sunday morning…kinda…sorta…like the tree falling in the forest…but not really…

A train crossing a river bridge…hmmm…that could go almost anywhere…pun intended…

Thankfully…as I mentioned…he writes in several genres…including a critically acclaimed paranormal series…Lethal Believers…contemporary fiction series…Emerson…upcoming releases…Young Adult Science Fiction series…ANNT…and…in Young Adult…Soccer Tommies Baseball Mommies…there always seems to be a story rumbling around in his head…and all of this Southern inspiration…will be put to good use…

Be sure to check out his books on Amazon…and…see…if maybe…just maybe…you can guess what his inspiration has been…until now…and…maybe…just maybe…Bertha…will show up on his page…

Well…stranger things have happened…he does write fiction…

Becoming Inspired…

I’ve always believed…that…when the student is ready…the teacher will come…and…once again…it has proven to be true…

For a while now…I’ve been…for lack of a better word…uninspired…now there are several reasons that it happened…but…they aren’t really important…as they say…it is what it is

Anyway…Bertha…kept assuring me…that it was just some…stuff…I was working through…and…that I would get through it…but…she wouldn’t tell me how…

Which…obviously…ticked me off…but…she wouldn’t budge…

So…I floundered a bit…

Until…this weekend…and the beginning of…the Hay House World Summit…it’s a ten day free event…featuring talks by some of my favorite personal growth authors…

I found that I couldn’t just sit at my desk and listen to them talk…it drove me a bit nuts…but…I could take my laptop in the other room…and…clean house whilst I listened…

Bingo…clean house…and…I’m starting to feel inspired…I’m having ideas…tiny glimmers of hope…

Of course…Bertha…is taking full credit for them…and…I suppose that is somewhat fair…since she is the one who encouraged me to register…and to tune in…I really don’t care who gets credit…

All I know is…I made affirmation cards last night…and…I’m ready to create my vision board that I bought the stuff for months ago…I know exactly what I want on it now…I know where I want to go…

And…that as they say…is…priceless
