I promised my new friend Linda Ryan I’d participate in what’s called a blog hop.
And since today is the final day for this big online dance, I figured I’d better start do-si-do-ing.
The idea is you answer the following four questions and then run the bio and photo of the person who invited you.
So, thanks, Linda for including me on your dance card. And I’m really glad you didn’t have the anticipated heart attack.
Here are the answers to your four questions.
1. What am I working on/writing?
I just finished a story for CNN on the 10 best beaches you’ve never heard of. Before that, I finished the manuscript for E-Cubed, the follow-up to E-Squared. Probably the most unusual thing I’m doing is embarking on what I’m calling “my year of speaking dangerously.” I’ve been invited to speak, literally all over the world. Next week I go to Mexico City. The week after, New York and it just keeps on rolling with Australia and Holland and Finland and Canada—all the way through 2015. At the end of this “dangerous year,” I’m going to assess how I like this new component of sharing the love. I’m also planning to get back to my TV series, Off the Grid.
2. How does my work differ from other of its genre?
Tough question since, after all, we’re all one. But I’d say my main focus is on play and having fun. I believe the best way to “really get” the principles I write about in E-Squared is to let go of all the rules and play around with them like a merry prankster.
3. Why do I write what I write?
My main goal as a writer is to be a secretary for the Divine. I try to hook up to this bigger thing and simply take dictation.
4. How does my writing process work?
Hmmm. It changes all the time, but mostly I invoke the muses (the higher thing I was talking about) to have at it.
