Writing Dreams and Insights – Blog Tour by Glory Nelson

//www.awakendream.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/11/copy-cropped-073.jpg">copy-cropped-073.jpgI was invited to join a blog tour by author and blogger, Sherry Puricelli that highlights authors who write about intuitive understanding. Sherry and I have been working together for over 10 years. Together, we have created beautiful spiritual retreats, classes and workshops that enhances an individuals life and journey.  We look at dreams and real life synchronicity in the same way. She is always the first person I call to share a dream or insight. Sherry, aside from sharing some of my passions, is the author of “Earth’s Tiny Star”, and a poet. She has a wonderful way of lyrically stringing words together to take you on a magical journey of self discovery and truth. To learn more about Sherry visit her at www.awakendream.com and www.dreamingglobalillumination.com

For this tour I was asked to answer these four questions.

1. What am I working on now? 

I am currently gathering dreams from the past year that have similar themes and symbols. I will write about the common factor but also look at actual symbols and themes that ended up showing up in my real life after I had the dream. I will continue to write about experiences I have and how they connect us to one another.

2. How does my writing process work?

I am usually inspired by a thought or insight that I just have to write down and then I see how it fits with what is happening in my daily life. I get really excited and I realize that if I don’t get it out there, I am unable to move forward. I get this nagging feeling, like I forgot something. Even if it’s a thought or a title to a post, I write it down or record it on my phone. This usually starts the process. To continue and follow this thought is a different story. When I am alone (which is rare), I will sit with the thought, the inspiration, and allow feelings and stories to fill my mind.  I will start to see the words on paper and then I am off to write my first draft.

 3. How does my work differ from others in my genre?

I love reading posts and articles from those I admire and who are in my field. Some are lyrical and poetic and some are informative. I tend to write heart-felt insights with a side of raw truths. I find that in order for me to fully express I may have to un-coat the sweetness.  I love creating a story that is filled with sleeping dreams, real life synchronicity and what I do with them in waking life to help myself and hopefully others.

4. Why do I write what I do?

I love sharing my insights and stories. I feel like they hold the Universal themes that we can all relate to and learn from.  I love teaching and inspiring others to live a happy and full life.

Thank you for touring my blog and here is another wonderful author and blogger.
