Plus that, I like interacting with my readers but I dislike the he-said-she-said-he-said blog wars about some minutia point or about various culture wars or even just trying to steal the thunder for publicity. It just isn't me. I know this is a way to get "noticed", but really they get personal and I am wholly uninterested in conflict with any other authors. It's not worth my time and I do not really see it as "discussion". I will get over that and "discuss things" next year.
But I have found a few areas, that I really want to explore and will move that way.
First, weird shit always happens in ritual to me. Its so common place that I honestly have to take a step back. So much so, that I have had to step back and write fiction about it. The first attempt at that was with the Good Luck Bath. Normally, I won't be selling anything with the fiction. Most people do not realize, I was a writer first, and then fell into being a magician. Getting acceptable at magic well ate so much of my time.
Now I need those tools to get out of the normalization of the weird shit. I know "weird shit is happening" is never a problem, but it is a problem when it causes the mystery of of it all to get well.. dull. I have been really busy, and the weirdness makes things dull. Fictionalizing it, is a way to see it from a voice of wonder. A place of wildness, and weirdness.
The words matter and the magic in the words I am returning to. I saw I lost 3 subscribers, so I hope the rest of you will like those stories. I will be doing a lot more of those stories. Even if I am selling something, I guarantee there are real lessons embedded in the "fiction". Real lessons for those who know to look.
Secondly, I will be doing more combining magic and cooking, cooking being a hobby of mine. I plan to post various recipes and ritual pictures ( that means FOOD PORN), as well as the intensions I used with the ritual embedding. Mostly, that will be just cooking with real focus and intention. BUT I am going to go get a "ritual Apron to take on a magical persona", while I am cooking. Mostly for everyone's amusement, especially my own.
Third, I will continue to post technique based posts, but if I see a topic goes beyond 5000 words over a coupe posts, I will bind this up in an ebook, so those posts my disappear.
Fourth, While I have a proof of concept with the Sleepy Time Meditations and Physical Exercise based magic, I am going to go back to these for fun.
Fifth, maybe a few general posts.
I do not know if I can keep up with a weekly schedule, but I will try to get one out every two weeks. Know that I appreciate you my fans, and look forward to connecting in the new year!!!
