Dear Cosmos...

My tango buddy and fellow picnicker, Chantal B, will confirm I cosmic ordered my perfect job in her very presence.

I was unemployed at the time and had been so for almost a year and a half. We were having one of our regular tea/coffee with tasty treat from local bakery scenarios. I believe it was close to Christmas and we were discussing the future as this time of year often makes one reflect in that way.

I munched on my treat and said, “What I really need is a job which allows me time to write in the mornings, do some kind of teaching and be creative at the same time as I love developing resources.”

Chantal heartily agreed this would be the kind of job to suit both my personality, desire to write on a more permanent basis and love of teaching.

But of course, simply sending this wish out into the cosmos was not enough.

I remember coming home after my chat with Chantal and my words still ringing like tinnitis in my ears. As I lay in bed that night I continued to reflect on my wish. In effect I suppose I developed a mantra and the power of it most certainly brought my wish into being.

As I write this post I have two positions which combine to make up that perfect job. I work for Inkhead as a creative writing tutor and also tutor students privately. These two jobs give me the opportunity to

  1. Write in the mornings
  2. Teach
  3. Create specialised resources

The concept of cosmic ordering may not be as out there as you think. Countless people use it on a daily basis for the simplest of things. I know one pain ridden friend who uses it to help her get a parking space close to any venue she has to attend. And it works every single time.

In the words of the psychic Michele Knight

Cosmic Ordering is Not a New Phenomenon

All religions give us this seed of wisdom – ‘ask and you shall receive, seek and you shall find.’
Does it matter why it works? Do not let that stop you! What have you got to lose? In all ancient cultures the initiation to become a great Magician involved embracing the understanding that the power of magic lies in the obvious. It is the simple things which create miracles.”

It does however come with a caveat: be careful what you wish for. It may make you ridiculously happy to be alive.

It certainly seems to be having that effect on me.

In the words of Goethe, “Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it!”

So naturally I'm busy working on my next order. And yes, it does involve my published books and amazing opportunities to film them.

Sun Worship

My second novel – Sharp Dark Things (desperately needing 3rd edit and hoping to be published on contains a description of my character sunbathing her eyelids in the early morning sun.  

And because I know you're wondering why:  

It's her moment of epiphany.  

In the spirit of living with my characters I thought it only right to emulate her actions – feel what she felt, hear what she heard... blah di blah blah.

I stood there, eyes shut, head tilted to meet the day and promptly sneezed humungously.  I recall this happening to me as a child.  It appears I'm still afflicted.

Why does this happen?  I pondered 

So I Googled it.


a) the laptop is in the next room 
b) it can be accessed even with one hand still wrapped around a cup of tea and
c) I think a trip to the library for this sort of diversionary tactic is a little excessive

And discovered an actual syndrome called Photic Sneeze Reflex.  18 - 35% of humans suffer from it, including me.

At this point I'm try…
