I've been focusing on the psycho part of my psycho author career lately. I just finished a professional conference in Big Sky, Montana, and head back down the mountain today. Right now it's -17 F! Here's the view from my hotel room:
I presented on treating trauma in a special population, and shared my "screen door" metaphor to explain flashbacks. Check out this POST if you're interested in how to write PTSD more accurately. It was wonderful connecting with colleagues.
One excellent TED talk I learned about at the conference is about how stress can be good for us. So if your heart's racing, your stomach full of butterflies, your muscles tingling…those are signs your body is preparing to rise to the challenge!
Progress is slow with my WIP, and sales aren't great. But I continue to enjoy the opportunity to create characters and stories.
How's your month going?
