Hello everyone. Please join me in welcoming Diamante Lavendar author of Poetry and Ponderings as she stops in today to chat about the writing process….
I have always been an off the cuff type of writer. I am inspired much of the time by spirit. I have fostered a relationship with the spirit world that can only be described as finding meaning and truth derived from difficulty. This meaning and truth then becomes embedded in my heart and soul. When I sit down to write, words come into my head and I put them on paper. It is easy for me to type them but difficult to hold their meaning. The reason why it is difficult is because my life is my muse. And many times not in a happy way. I have been through much turmoil and agony. I believe I came here for spiritual graduate work and I got what I came here for. It has been grueling but also eye opening and inspirational at the same time if that makes any sense. I have found that the harshest reality can bring the greatest spiritual revelations. This has been the course of my life.
