Motivation Monday: Be Like a River, Go with The Flow

Hey guys, this week I begin driving lessons! As you can see by the exclamation mark, I am very excited. I am also real nervous. I have not driven since my wreck in 2009. That wreck left me concussed and terrified of driving even though I was not at fault. Anyway, that’s beside the point.

Another exciting thing is the Geology spring break trip. I will go to the Mojave! I know little about the trip yet but I will write about it when I get back. Things are flowing, some good, no lots good but even when I got good flow I know life isn’t always smooth so today, My Motivation Monday is:

When the river flows, it does not avoid the rock but embraces the rock. Over time, the rock in the river is rounded and changed and the jagged edges become smooth. In this way we too must embrace obstacles that cannot be avoided. When a river cannot make it through rough terrain, it’s path changes. It is not wrong or unmotivated to change direction, to avoid obstacles which otherwise hinder us. But if it cannot be avoided (School Tests, Job interview, a Marriage) we must welcome, embrace the change, the hindrance and reshape it into our benefit. Be like a river my friends and go with the flow.

Social Saturdays: An Attempt to Connect

-Damien

Well we here at The Shadow’s Lair have been BUUUUUUSY. No YouTube videos in ages from us (I apologize)  and sporadic blog postings. I have so many over due restaurant reviews I need to post too.

Anyway today is Social Saturday. Every Saturday I try to answer questions asked by followers. I didn’t get any yet but the door is still open.

We are still moving into our new house. Process is slow moving. Kids still enjoying attending college classes with me. The only thing is transportation to and from school has been Uber and that gets expensive.

If you all like The Shade of Writing please go to our Patreon and support us. Even a dollar helps and will get you listed as a supporter on our Follow Fridays.

Thanks.

Slow Day

Thoughts By Damien Knight

Today I did mostly lessons with the kids and spending time with family. I managed to keep up with the literary challenge. I am working on the novel so I might only be able to make 1 post a day until the chapter is done. I hope not. Thanks guys.

Life Update: Georgia

By Damien Knight

Written Mar 21 2017

I have temporarily moved to Georgia. I have acquired a new laptop. My family is all back together and we are attempting to buy a different house. I will return to Kentucky and the new house when school starts. I am very excited. I shall hopefully return to our normal schedule of poetry and fantasy stories but I also will be posting photography and travel writing’s my spouse has written. Keep your eyes open.

Kentucky Bound

By Damien Knight 
We will be kentucky bound! Exciting. Nieghbours here were pricks all night. Yelling and screaming. I slept through but poor Aaron woke angrier than a bear stung by hornets.

Aaron decided to make as much noise as possible this morning. Nieghbours weren’t happy bout that nor was I. Now we have no water. He suspects the nieghbours of course.

That said this was the first night with no nightmares. I just dreamt I was fighting Thalmor. Wooo Skyrim. Anyway going to play Skyrim now.

Serialised Novel

By Damien Knight

I had decided to post my novel one chapter at a time here as I work on it. Originally I had it published it on Amazon.com but withdrew it for it’s many errors. I will be republishing once all edits on the novel are finished. It will be available as a full Novelette on Amazon at that point unless Inkitt ends up publishing it. I will post another blog announcing when it is republished.

I cannot guarantee a time schedule for these serialised chapters. I am working hard on them, the Aldaria Journals and Restaurant reviews. I am doing my best to keep content coming.

I am amazed at how well received my writings thus far have been. I will continue to post daily at least one poem. I am grateful for all those who have been reading regularly so far.
