I have a Cousin Bob who always is in good spirits. There are moments when things
are not going so well but he’s not one for letting it get him down. We should take
a deep breath and look at the situation in a different light, he’d tell you.
He’s a good inspiration for all of us. Try to look on the bright side.
He doesn’t push it. It comes as a casual remark.
He’d tell you it can’t be as bad as it seems. Then he’ll wait for your reply.
Clear the head. Take time to think of alternatives. They may not come all at once.
If that doesn’t work put the problem aside for a while. Before you tackle it again
with a different perspective.
Writer’s comment: I’m asked from time to time how do I start writing a book.
Where do the ideas come from? How to get started? It’s a good question. I jot down
things that might work. Take the book I’m working on. COWBOY It’s a western. What if
he’s forced back to the past to settle what happened? That’s the way I look at it.
Working out bits of the plot as I go along.
