I am always a work in progress... We never stop learning to master our craft.
Some of my favorite personal quotes..
"Everything I do, everything I am, all that I breathe is 18+ and will contain sexually suggestive material. ~ Gina Kincade 2011
"If you never have any expectations of other people then you will never be disappointed. When a positive experience occurs it is always a reason to rejoice." ~Gina Kincade, 2009
"I have learned, as a rule of thumb, never to ask whether you can do something. Say, instead, that you are doing it. Then fasten your seat belt. The most remarkable things follow." ~Julia Cameron

Stuck for words? Try this..., An insight revealed by "Belthizor"
Hello my ever-loyal underlings,
In this article, I thought I'd break away from the normal bitch session about poor grammar to reflect on something I learned today.
Perhaps the most common and frustrating problem among writers is the dreaded Writer's Block *dun dun DUUUN*.
Those two words alone are enough to strike fear in the hearts of many a writer. Fortunately, there is a solution... well not a guaranteed solution, but certainly one that can make a big difference.
So, what is this 'miracle cure' of which I speak? It's really quite frightfully easy.
The trick is Journal Writing. The answer lies within you.
Everyone is capable of writing, and we all know it, yet bringing the talent to the forefront can be a difficult process at the best of times. However, journal writing, or as my Professional Practice Teacher calls it: "diarising" can help get those creative juices flowing. The blurb to a brilliant book, which I will reference at the end of this article, states:
"Everyone can keep a journal. And everyone can learn from the journal writing experience. About personal insights, the meaning of dreams, "hangups" and stumbling blocks to success, our hidden fears and secret love affairs."
Still not convinced? Then read the following extract, from the same book:
"The writing of a journal is a simple process. It doesn't demand that we interpret a multitude of books or conform to a set of specific guidelines. It simply suggests we start at the most logical point in time - now."
The best bit about a journal? It's private, and it doesn't judge. In fact, it encourages you to write. It wants you to write. It calls for you to write. I can hear it now "Beeel-thizor!" it calls. "Come write in me! You know you want to... come to me..."
So, what are you waiting for? Get to writin'!
Your journal should be seen as an extension of you. A way for you to get down on paper (or computer) your deepest, darkest thoughts, fears, dreams, relationship issues, or even your thoughts on how much you absolutely adore that gorgeous hunk of man that is your one and only Lord Belthizor (I know you dream of me ;)).
Dream lofty dreams, and as you dream, so shall you become. Your vision is the promise of what you shall one day be; your Ideal is the prophecy of what you shall at last unveil. James Allen - "As A Man Thinketh"
Until next time,
Happy writing, and happy editing,

Publishers Note: The views of the author do not necessarily reflect those of the publisher. We are very aware that the majority of men, and quite a few women, in our audience dream nightly naughty dreams of "The Mistress" herself, not the lowly Lord Belthizor (even if he is a sex god)...lmao!
