music, recycling & Live Chat for writers !!!


-- Quote of the Day --

“…I received a phone call from DR Robert Jones (former consultant to NASA) and he’s been studying my music, he said “we’ve been doing preliminary studies on your music and we’ve found that your music has frequencies that actually void negative energy fields and promotes a higher level of consciousness.” …Humanity has dumped over 60,000 chemicals in our air, food and water, all kinds of electronics that put out electronic pollution in the air that impacts our physical health… …In reality we are connected to a field of energy – everything is energy - …but what really blew my mind was when they started doing demonstrations of how things we use every day affect us.” 

~ Mark Romero ( March 16, 2010)


Today's quote originated from a Conscious Discussions Radio interview with Mark Romero that aired on Marcy 16, 2010. The archive of the interview is available for anyone to access at their convenience - click on this show title here: Music Therapy

 *Reprinted with permission from Websites, Wisdom and Whimsy - a free e-zine published bimonthly by Self-Publishing Resources.

"Pre-consumer" materials are generated by manufacturers and processors, and may consist of scrap, trimmings and other by-products that were never used in the consumer market.

"Post-consumer" material is an "end product" that has completed its life cycle as a consumer item and would otherwise have been disposed of as a solid waste - including recyclables collected in commercial and residential recycling programs (such as office paper, cardboard, aluminum cans, plastics, e-waste and metals).

-- Announcement --

Please join me on May 29 - I'm going to be interviewed at Paula Zone  http://www.paulazone.blogdrive.com  

Writer Interview #18

-- Announcement --

In fulfillment of my agreement to take several days off from the office work every single month - I will be out of the office from Thursday afternoon (May 20) to Monday morning (May 31st) -- I will respond to all emails, etc when I return. I'm sure my gardens will appreciate the extra attention I intend to shower them with this weekend :)

-- Writer Interview #18 --

Cate Masters writes fantasy/dark fantasy, historical, contemporary and speculative fiction, described by reviewers as “so compelling, I did not want to put it down,” “such romantic tales that really touch your soul,” “filled with action scenes which made it a riveting story,” and “the author weaves a great tale with a creative way of using words that makes the story refreshing to read.” The proud mom of three adult children, she currently lives in central Pennsylvania with her husband, Lily the dog, their dictator-like cat, Chairman Maiow, and dozens of characters inhabiting her imagination. Visit Cate online at www.catemasters.com, http://catemasters.blogspot.com or follow her on Facebook or Twitter.

Q: What is your idea of happiness? 
 
A: First, thanks so much for having me as a guest today! It’s a pleasure to be at Brummet’s Conscious Blog. Albert Schweitzer said: “Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.”  

Right now, I feel the balance of the two—being able to do what most gratifies me every day, and hopefully bringing happiness to others with my writing as well. 

Q: Are you doing what you really want to do in life?

A: Absolutely. I had what most would have called a very successful career as a deputy press secretary in the state Department of State, but though I was surrounded by amazing people, I was miserable. Because I worked crazy long hours, I had zero time to write for several years. It took a family crisis for me to reassess my priorities and decide to put my writing first.

Q: In your career as a writer - what do you consider to be your greatest strengths and weaknesses?

A: I love flying through a first draft, getting down the story without really knowing where it will lead. I even love first revisions, crafting sentences that excite me. Second and third and fourth revisions, I get antsy and want to move on, but I know it’s important to see those revisions through. So I’m great at dancing with the muse at the party, but not so great at cleanup afterward.

Q: What are some of your favorite websites for writers?

A: As I come across great sites for writers, I link them to my own web site at www.catemasters.com. Blogs have become a very important resource, and I have many linked to my blog at http://catemasters.blogspot.com so I can refer to them often. Some are not necessarily writing-related, however. A few are merely interesting sites which I find inspiring.

Q: What are some of the tools you use for marketing?

A: I’m still on the upside of this learning curve, having only first been published in March 2009. But since that time, I’ve had 17 contracts for ebooks, from shorts to novels, so am trying to ramp up to speed as quickly as possible. I launched my web site last year, and list all the events and news there, as well as info about my books. I have a FaceBook page and use that as a tool not only for my own news, but to post links to articles or resources others might find helpful too. I do the same with my blog plus I feature other authors. 

I don’t even know the number of Yahoo loops I belong to, but they’ve been a great source of author to author networking and support, as well as a means of getting word out about releases, contests, etc. My FaceBook page is linked to Twitter, so I do tweet in that way but I admit I’m terrible at using it the way I should. Marketing could easily take over all my time, but at some point, you have to know when to step away and get back to writing.

Q: Are you satisfied with your experiences as a published author?

A: After so many years of rejections from the big publishing houses, it’s been amazing having so many acceptances at once, if a bit overwhelming. Last year, I had several releases that overlapped or came too soon on the heels of the previous one, which made marketing a bit of a whirlwind, to say the least. Though I have no control over release dates, it would be great to space them out a little more evenly. But I’m happy for any release dates, honestly! The community of authors pleasantly surprised me, and I’m grateful for the friendships I’ve been fortunate to make, and to be in the company of such talent.

Writer Interview #16




-- Quote of the Day --


"The beautiful part of writing is that
you don't have to get it right the first time, 
unlike, say, a brain surgeon.
You can always do it better,
find the exact word, 
the apt phrase, 
the leaping simile." 

~ Robert Cormier




-- Chatter --


Wow, Can you believe it is May 26th already? Time has sped up for me this year, more noticeably that the past. It has been an incredibly busy spring season, dealing with my parents' estate matters since January, all the work around the property, a heavy schedule in the office... And here it is, nearly the end of May! I'll be taking a few days off this month - which means I'll be out of the office -  between  May 28 and May 31... Your patience is appreciated during that time frame.




-- Writer Interview #17 --


Our discussion today will focus on authors promoting literacy. Joining us is B. Swangin Webster, who worked on her first novel, Let Me Just Say This, for three days before it was completed, straight out of high school. However, it took more than 20 years for her to finally submit it for publishing. Her second novel, And Again…Let Me Say This, was actually released less than a year after her first. She is currently finishing up her third novel, Once and For All. As you can see by the interview below, this author has a passion for writing, mentoring other writers and encouraging everyone to read. When she is not writing, she is cooking or reading one of her 200+ books. Find today's guest at: http://bswanginwebster.webs.com



Q: What makes a good story?

A: You really have to look at what context of the story. Does it catch your eye from the synopsis, or does it cause a reaction when you read any page that you might flip to? If you can answer yes to both of those questions, than you have a good story.  To have a great story, you have to answer yes to the following question: Does the story jump off of the pages, so that you can't put it down - before you buy it?

Q: Do you have any suggestions to help others become a better writer?

A: Yes, definitely. My suggestion would always be: never second guess a character, circumstance or voice (first person, second person, narrative). If you do that, your story will not remain true to what you want it to be.

Q: What advice would you give to someone who is interested in your topic?

A: Well my topic is not an easy topic to discuss. It deals with issues, which in today's society, is not talked about. Dealing with domestic violence and self-esteem issues have been a no-no, but recently it gains more light, because of the "professionals" (those in the public eye) now being exposed to it.

Q: What kinds of benefits come from participating in groups and organizations?  

A: The benefits are wonderful. I participated in a writing group, where I gained some wonderful critiques from people who only liked to read, and when they told me what they like to see in a novel, I took that and ran with it, like a kid getting handed a five-dollar bill and sent into the dollar store!


You also can interact with more people who share your vision of being an author and gain valuable experience from their "travels" in the land that I like to call "Authorville".

Q: What are your thoughts on the publishing industry?

A: My thoughts are varied. First I thought small publishing houses were the way to go until I saw, how some authors are getting ripped off by them. Then I thought, big publishing houses was the way to go, but unless you have a sure fire best seller on your hands, you are taking a big gamble. I think that the publishing industry to often overlooks people that have real talent, to go with someone who has a product that might be a one hit wonder. Yes, it happens just like in the music industry.

Q: Often we hear about the issues with literacy, how can writers help this issue?

A: The way that writers can help is go to schools and volunteer in an English class, or what we call Language/Reading classes. Too often schools are "teaching a test" meaning they are not putting in the time to teach our students the joy in writing and reading. My first goal as an author was to talk to students in the middle school I work in about reading and writing, and you would be amazed that they actually believe that Texting is reading/writing. I tell them that if you develop that love early, you can become a poet, an author, or even someone in the publishing industry, but first you have to develop a love for it. 

I challenge all authors and writers to volunteer at least once a month at their local school. It doesn’t matter what level -, elementary, middle/junior, or high school...even college - students love to hear about authors, especially in their own communities.

Q: In what ways can an author help other writers? (i.e. -how do you help writers?)

A: By always offering my help, even when they think they don't need it. I look on social networks for authors, and let them know that I was where they are right now. I reached out to some bestselling authors, and amazingly, they gave me valuable lessons and I said I would do the same. So right now, I mentor at least 4 authors with everything from writing style to website development, and my only requirement is: they must mentor someone coming behind them.

Positive Living & Writing...


-- Conscious Discussions Radio --



Our guest on today's episode of the Conscious Discussions radio show: Philip Yaffe was unable to join us this morning to give us tips on How to Write and Speak Like a Professional due to a bit of a cold he picked up. We are in the process of rescheduling with him. So instead, I will offer a Positive Eco-News  discussion revolving around Water Month (May) and will cover issues from bottled water to the health of our water. Check it out by following the links here, or look to the right side of this blog to find live or recently aired Conscious Discussions episodes.


-- Writer Interview #16 --

Today's guest author was sent our way from Brandi Drury of BK Walker Books  Urban fiction writer and entertainment blogger, Vogue - was born April L. Blanding. She is holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Social Work and is passionate about her work as a Program Contractor with the Teen Health Center for York County in South Carolina (USA). Currently, Vogue is writing a ten-book series titled The Diamond Collection. The first novel is Diamonds in the Rough, which is being published through Passionate Writer Publishing. You can visit Vogue at www.simplyvogue.net.  The discussion below between April and I reveals how she works as a writer, how she handles some of the difficulties in this career, where she gets the motivation for her work and more:
 
Lillian: What motivates you to write? 

April: My motivation to write comes from anything that I may have seen or heard that sparks my imagination. It could be a conversation with another individual or even a song. Wanting to expand on the idea or vision, I immediately begin to turn that thought or vision into words. Before long, I find myself staring at the first ten pages of a novel.

Lillian: How do you spend your writing time? 

April: Before I start writing, I always review what I have written the day before. Sometimes, I may even start at the beginning of the novel. It allows me to see discrepancies and gives me new ideas for a possible twist in the storyline. Once I have reviewed my past days’ work, I then begin adding on new chapters.  

Lillian: What is your favorite genre of writing? 

AprilNarrative writing is my favorite genre of writing because it allows the author to use all aspects of their imagination. The author has full control over the setting, characters, and plot unless it is a nonfiction novel. Aside from grammar, I feel that there shouldn’t be any rules when it comes to writing. Everything should be uninhibited.

LillianDo you write only non-fiction? Or fiction? 

April: As of right now, I write only fiction. However, I have brainstormed ideas for a nonfiction book because I do not want to limit myself. I chose to write fiction versus nonfiction because there were fewer boundaries. With fiction, you can create your own fantasy world.

Lillian: What keeps you writing while getting rejection letters or struggling with writer's block? 

April: If a novel has been rejected, I take into consideration the feedback that I’ve received. My drive to give quality work is what keeps me writing. If I am experiencing writer’s block, I try my best not to write. I step away from the novel for a couple of days or maybe even weeks until I feel the urge to write again.

Lillian: Do you use certain tricks that help prevent you from straying from your goal? 

April: Before I start working on a new novel, I make an outline of the entire book. It allows me to see all of my ideas on paper before I actually start writing. I can make major changes to the novel without having to rewrite chapters since it is only an outline. Not only does it save time, but it allows me to work on my novel even when I’m not in front of my laptop.

International day of Biodiversity


-- Quote of the Day --


"Accountability breeds response-ability." 

- Stephen R Covey



-- International Day of Biodiversity --


Today is International Day of Biodiversity. According to the Convention on Biological Diversity (www.cbd.int) "The United Nations proclaimed May 22 The International Day for Biological Diversity  to increase understanding and awareness of biodiversity issues." Last year's theme focused on invasive species - this year's theme focuses on green space development and poverty alleviation.

So many plants and animals are threatened by human activities - that we have lost about 30% of the animal diversity in the last 50 years. Did you know that there is an unprecedented decline in the number of species happening right now, every single day? During the last century as much as 75% of our food biodiversity has died out and only 10% remains!! Every single one of us has played a role in this vast destruction - and yet, because this is human-caused, we can change it. We can change it by being more responsible, making smarter business and shopping decisions and creating green space where ever we can.

Your own backyard can be an amazing place to begin. Start by building healthy soil, and then once you have that in place, bring in plants that have a wide variety of shapes and sizes, with a wide variety of high-pollen producing flowers and a few shrubs that produce winter berries for the birds. This is a great place to start. You can then bring in a water feature, bird houses, bat houses, bee habitat creation and more. Perhaps your family will adopt a trail, or beach or river bank and start projects there... There are so many things we can do. Including keeping our cats indoors, or in outdoor enclosed areas (kind of like a caged play pen that the felines can enter via their cat door - cats are responsible for killing millions of birds each year. And these are unnecessary deaths.

Here's something that families and youth or adult groups can get involved in: According to Biodiversity Day (www.biodiversity-day.info), because the focus this year they are inviting individuals and groups to highlight the importance of ecosystems for human well-being. "For 2 to 4 weeks around 22 May, a broad range of people in the participating countries will be invited to jointly explore and analyze a local ecosystem. The idea is to evaluate and demonstrate the value of this ecosystem and its biodiversity in a way that is easily understood by everybody. In cooperation with the TEEB team the "value" of exemplary ecosystems will be assessed."

Making Choices, Poetry & Team Writing



-- Quote of the Day --

I’m 64.5 years old and I meet a lot of people who say, ‘I can’t change, I’ve always done this…’ and I think of myself as a perfect example and say, ‘Of course you can change! As long as you are alive, you can make choices and decisions based on what you think is right.’ … I get to be out there and show people that you can be 60, 70, 80, or 90 and still change and grow. …The first step for greening any event is the the 3- R’s, which sounds so basic. …Think about how you can reduce – maybe the party can be done with less food, less packaging. …And Reuse, How can we do this and make it fun? Perhaps everyone can bring their own plate of food. …and of course for recycling make sure that you have the recycling bins and compost bucket ready for use. …If you took one item with reduce, one with reuse, one with recycle – you would be so much farther down the road (of greening your world)


~ Lynn Colwell (Oct 15, 2009)


Today's inspiring quote of the day originates from a Conscious Discussions Talk Radio show interview that aired back on Oct 15, 2009 - our discussion focused on: Greening Holidays & Events Click on the hyper-linked show title to go directly to the interview with Lynn, or click on the radio show title to learn more about the program.

-- Endangered Species Day --




Today, May 21st, is Endangered Species Day... According to stopextinction.org "Endangered Species Day is an opportunity for people young and old to learn about the importance of protecting endangered species and everyday actions that people can take to help protect our nation’s disappearing wildlife and last remaining open space." The FWS.gov site tells us that today is set aside to recognize "the importance of endangered and threatened species and focusing attention on what we can do to save them."

Did you know that there are more than 1,300 species in desperate conditions, rated as endangered in the US alone?

Bottled Water & Literacy for Youth

 -- Quote of the Day --

 
"In life decide whether or not you 
are going to be honorable or not 
- never follow always lead."

~ Phil Kammer



-- Conscious Discussions Talk Radio --


In honor of Youth Month (May), Ina Hillebrandt and Lillian will be discussing the various issues and positive programs for childhood literacy. Ina is the author of Pawprints - an an uplifting collection of short "tails" about close encounters of the furry kind. This book project grew into a literacy program that began as a workshop for the Jane Goodall Institute. Ina is also the president of Pawpress and founder of the Pawprints Literacy Plus Organization. Join us today by clicking on the show title link: Pawprints Literacy Plus

...And check out the comment section for today's episode to find related interviews that have aired in the past on the Conscious Discussions Talk Radio show. 



 -- Bottled Water --


May is also Water Month and there are many water awareness activities going on right now. However, one of the issues with water is finding clean, pure drinkable stuff - not filled with chemicals, or agricultural runoff or uranium from the surrounding terrain... We think that when we buy a bottle of water we are getting pure stuff, and are being healthy - but this is far from the truth. The plastic itself is unfriendly - leaching toxins and leaving a plastic taste to the water, especially if they have been exposed to sunlight. The bottles are a huge issue for the environment. And the water - the water itself is  not clean! 

Did you know that some bottled waters in Europe actually contain up to 60 micrograms of uranium per litre? That’s about 40 micrograms too many – Believe it or not, 20 micrograms of uranium per litre is considered “safe”! Studies have also revealed that testing of the various bottled water on the market reveals things like sewage, fertilizer and animal waste – and nitrates can be very unhealthy for humans.

We are all better off to install a filter system under the kitchen sink - the family saves money, reduces waste and stress on the recycling system as well as reducing the shopping that they will have to do. It just makes sense... Sure, take water with you - in a reusable stainless-steel bottle. Or if you must, reuse another bottle instead. Try to stick with plastic numbering 2, 4 and 5 - they are considered the safest.

We invite you to consider keeping a jug or two of the water in your fridge for drinking, and one in the freezer for emergencies.  Placing a few jugs of water in the freezer when it is fairly low on contents will help it run more efficiently. Taking one of these along with you in the cooler when camping or doing outdoor activities will keep the cooler cooler ( lol ) and as the jug of ice melts, the water becomes very cold drinkable water for you or your fur companions.

Grab a Snowflake & Greening Lifestyles



-- Quote of the Day --

“…Green product purchasing doesn’t mean we encourage over consumption – but there are products that you do need and we help to direct people to better choices… than just the mainstream products that we may be used to. …Often people would tell me ‘this is a green product’ but I would be wondering WHY that product was green. …We do a number of things to green our shipping we default to ground shipping because it is the most efficient per order. We use 100% reclaimed boxes and packaging materials (from neighbors, friends, companies) and use that for our shipping. We also purchase carbon offsets for the shipping involved in purchasing on BuyGreen.com. And actually – there have been studies that show how shopping online can actually reduce one’s carbon footprint. …Going green doesn’t have to be done all at once; it can be done one step at a time.” 

~ Allison Huke Sept 15 – 2009
