OUt of the BoX

Well reading is a  crazy kind of thing, yah know. Its all to do with language and the understandable understanding that you really do understand it at all.  I have tried to for years to memorize rules, regulations and such but what pops out of my mouth is usually an original.  My boss to day was talking to me and said, “Is that another swickle word!”  I sat there thinking about what she just said.  I went back through my mind on the word, at which I don’t remember it at the moment but realized, my word was not a word and said, “I guess just in the world of swickle!”  She looked at me puzzled and then laughed.  I have always thought out of the box, been able to read people more than they would like and feel things sometimes before it happens.  It is a weird gift and I have put a damper on it through the years. When I feel something instead of blurting it out I just wait, then upon the out come I can say to myself, yup, new that.  My writing is amazingly complicated, for one dyslexia and sentence structure usually goes on the page backwards. IT is hard to read it at times and be critical because unless my husband slows me down and shows me the problem I will read it just like I wrote it backwards, hallirious for some, for me just a heart felt throb that – yes that’s me. I will try harder. Writing different than most is a hard thing, to be different is I think sometimes a downfall, wish I could conform to others, it would make my life easier. I think for a writer if you don’t say at least many times, I am going to stop this craziness then… POP! Another story welcomes itself in to take you on a new journey, so how can you say no to that. Being a writer is like being an artist or someone who has to paint or build, its just another kind of craziness, that yes, has to be done.  If I just help one child with my stories or just cause that infectious smile it brightens my whole day.  So those are my trowbles, but I think not to write would be a sin so write I shall, If it makes your heart feel whole, then just keep typing out those keys… I know I will!!!

The Increditable Kim Mutch Emerson, “Welcome”

 

 

 

It’s a sad time in my life when I don’t have time to read. I feel lonely and out of place; depressed and abandoned by my dearest friend, the Book. As sad as it is, that is where I find myself right now. I hold a full time job that zaps my emotional energy during the summer months and I run a full time business promoting authors and their books. Between these two full time positions I am working furiously on a novel of my own, so the closest thing to reading a book for me right now would be flipping through the pages of my dictionary.

 

Oh come on, you have to admit that can be pretty darn exciting. Just flip one open and see where you land. Today I flipped to “offroad”. Now that can be an adventure waiting to happen. What if you were traveling through the dessert and went offroad into the barren wasteland. What heart stopping escapade could be right around the next sand dune?

 

The next page I randomly picked had the entry “William Frederick Cody”; otherwise known as Buffalo Bill Cody. I didn’t know his real name was William Frederick. I think he made a wise decision when he changed it. I mean, can you imagine the bullying that would have gone on? I can see the other rough and tumble type calling out, “hey William Frederick, hold it right there or you’re dead where you sit.”

 

And now see, the sparks of my imagination begin to fly! What if Buffalo Bill was up yander in the hills above the silver mines of Nevada? What if he knew there were trouble a foot and he had his pistol drawn waiting to save the day? What if the bad guys in black hats were chasing Calamity Jane through the dark and narrow pass?

 

I guess I am not depressed after all. The dictionary is my friend.

 

 

I would like to introduce Kim Mutch Emerson!
