Like most writers, the passion is in writing and storytelling. The downside is if you’re trying to sell books you not only have to advertise but learn about sale algorithms. I’ve spent the entire day learning (I do enjoy learning), changing keywords and categories in order to be the most transparent with what is the content in my books. Yes, they’re poetry but there are so many categories in poetry. Researching keywords took the longest but I got my keywords. I also took an ad out on Amazon (first time) for my book Inspire Me: Perception. I’ll check back in a month (that’s when the ad ends) and let you know how that went. In the meantime, be safe, show love, and many blessings.
As a poet, I’ve had so many ideas for stories and poems. Writing with pen and paper seems to work to alleviate some stress of the changing world. Transferring them to the computer and editing is something I haven’t had the energy to do. I have felt a change was long overdue, but the insecurity and unknowingness are alarming. I’ve been watching less and less news. So much anger, depression, and mistreatment of our fellow man that it’s numbing because it’s overwhelming. I wish I had an answer to ease other’s pain. I have to learn to ease my own, to move forward.
May you be blessed, be safe and be kind. Much love! Sonia
What is gratitude? A difficult issue currently when so much is happening in the world. Protest, COVID 19 and if that wasn’t enough there was the issue of the killer hornets.
Gratitude is being grateful for what we have in our lives. Our health, family, friends, a home, food, laughter, and the knowledge to know that we will overcome these challenging times. Sending many blessings and take care of yourselves (health, love, and nourishment). Be safe.
It’s a strange time in our history. The pandemic affected many major cities in ways we haven’t thought of in our current history. Then the protesters for Black Lives Matter. I’m in total support of equality. That part of living in the United States should be a given. This might upset some but what I’ve realized that some interpret “equality” as taking over. As a minority myself it just means equality. To be treated with respect, compassion and consideration is just a human need, no matter what culture or color of your skin.
I’m pro mankind. To be able to live without fear. To be able to work without discrimination. To be able to love whomever you wish.
Sending blessings and much love to all. May we all be safe. Thank you!

Yesterday I had the privilege to go to the WriteGirl retreat and meet such wonderful ladies who are donating their time to mentor underprivileged girls learn how to write. I also met Lynne Thompson and heard some of her beautiful poetry. Looking to get Lynne to be my next guest poet. Stay tuned.
