Sundeelia: Solstice Greeting
So, just moments ago, I completed the 25th chapter of my fourth book. Now I still have editing and formatting to do, but the primary job of writing is done. After nearly three full years of writing, I have decided to end the story. It certainly wasn’t the end of Raphael’s life – he lived a long and full life – but the story covered the parts where Raphael experienced trauma, struggled, then healed, and finally succeeded beyond all expectations placed upon him as a young recently orphaned 14-year-old boy. We could all do so well, if we gave ourselves half a chance.
It is with a sense of sadness that I leave the writing process. I will be writing a short epilogue, but the book is basically done. In the process of writing it, I have truly become a writer. Hopefully, soon… sometime later this year or next, the first book will be able to be published. I plan to self-publish to start with and next have to explore my options in that direction.
Since I have basically finished my first and primary project which brought me here as a walk-in, I will soon be free to pursue my other interests, including photography, painting, and traveling.
I apologize for not writing anything new on Sunny’s Journal, but I was caught up in a writer’s fever working through the last chapters of this last book. If you’re a writer, you’ll understand. If not… well, anyone who is creative will also understand.
The times they are changing… maybe not fast enough for some and too fast for others. I chose back in March to stop posting intel reports from various sources. It was apparent then that the ‘process’ was taking longer than anticipated. Rumors abound, but those in charge behind the scenes are managing to keep most of the information hush hush right now. We’ll know when we are meant to know… and that’s when most of what has been happening is over.
Now, I would like to encourage my readers to send me suggestions for topics. I can’t guarantee that I will address them all, but I will see what my time will allow.
Now, I wish all my readers, new and old, a Happy Solstice, no matter where you are on our beautiful planet. It’s now winter in the Southern hemisphere and a hot summer in the North. Here in Florida, the nights and days are now in the 80’s and extremely steamy – not my favorite weather. TG for air conditioning.
This has been quite an adventure for me, writing about a lifetime spent hundreds of thousands of years ago, written through a process similar to remote viewing. I didn’t plan the story; it happened, emerging out of my fingers some times like a flowing river and then, at other times, like a bumpy ride on a boulder-strewn 4×4 trail, slowly and painfully. When I go back to re-read the chapters (over 100 now) I marvel at how my writing style has matured. No, I’m not Charles Dickens, Jane Austen, or Robert Heinlein… but I am a writer. Tazjma wanted to write ever since she could hold a pencil. And she did write, but not this much… a complete story of someone’s life… lives, if you include the short lives of Commander Delos Gia. Tazjma found her way into my story as Commander Tazo Gia, as did several other people whom I know today… both at Home and a few here on Terra. Their privacy will be respected.
So, now I’m going to take a day or so off… unless I feel like writing some little article. Thanks to all who have made suggestions for topics.
I AM Sundeelia (aka Eliza Ayres)
P.S. Just received a ‘Happy Anniversary’ greeting from WordPress. It’s official, I’ve been blogging now for nine years! Thanks to Eric who initially encouraged me to write and share!
