My Writing Tips

Writing Tips

How did I know I wanted to be an author? 

My fifth grade English teacher told me I had talent. Me? At age twelve, I wrote my first novel, about a horse. And I’ve been writing ever since … high school, college, married years, post-married single years.

Do I have any writing rituals or practices?

While coffee is brewing, I sit and meditate – tune in. At the end of my practiced routine (ritual), the words just start coming. And I write them down. (Sometimes, the zone hits me while watching TV. I always have paper and pen handy.)

This routine works with all kinds of writing, even with writing my memoirs. It seems that once I “align,” my mind is focused and clear – and the words just come. Even a few minutes of tuning in makes a huge difference. My meditation technique gets me “there.” The writing is the bonus. So easy! (Especially when it “comes” to you – then all you have to do is edit, and organize.)

What is my advice for aspiring authors?

Never give up. Keep at it. Listen to your own instincts. (I write because I can’t “not” write. I just have to.)

Write, write, and keeping writing. Rewrite, rewrite, rewrite. Edit, edit, edit.

I highly recommend English grammar classes and writing courses. It is imperative to get critical feedback so you know what you need to improve.

It also helps to have editing skills, grammar courses in high school and college, and several writing courses and workshops.

Also important: submit for publication, everywhere, anywhere (and save every detail for your work resume).

I’ve been publishing since high school (poetry) and college (creative writing classes), much of which were published in national and school journals. In my most-active dating years (post-marriage), I published in regional newsletters over thirty vignette poems (about the dating life), which I later included in my first memoir, I’m Dancing As Fast As I Can. In my post-dance club life, I published several “true love” poems in magazines (U.S. and Canada). Then I wrote and edited on every job I had (even if they didn’t hire me for that, such as temp clerical secretary jobs; it all adds up on the resume, and led to jobs as an editorial assistance, technical editor, technical writer). Once I started my own freelance book editor professional services (in 1994), I published articles in a writers’ club newsletter.

The spirituality writing “came” to me, starting at age thirty, and that was the origin of all the books. (So far, 11 awards on seven titles submitted, published fifteen and more to come, annually.) The spirituality writing includes personal growth, the spiritual path, angels, meditation, psychic protection, discernment, connecting with one’s Higher Self, the inner voice, consciousness, and the soul; plus, cosmology, dimensions, evolution, time and space, new scientific discoveries (and predictions) in science and medicine, origins of humanity,the future, and the new humanity (my specialty, since 1975).

Tip for spirituality writing: meditate, daily. Listen. Receiving and intuiting are practiced skills, too.

Sense Everything Around You? Protect yourself—from the world?


This lifetime-workbook of original techniques for living Higher Self conscious and activating or enhancing your natural and innate intuitive senses includes Charol Messenger’s 130 original meditations and easy techniques, which she learned from the Divine Inner Self, used in her own life, and taught as a Higher Self Teacher for spiritual living in our modern world.

Key chapters include: intuitive sensing the world around you, psychic protection, 29 personal life stories on how Charol used innate intuition in everyday life crises and challenging situations, and original techniques for the busy modern life that show you how to be safe in all circumstances.

Gleaned from Charol’s 41 years as a Higher Self clairvoyant, empath, channel, and  shaman (instinctively recalled from past lives), she shares her original techniques on inner hearing, inner seeing, intuitive sensing, and psychic protection. In the anecdotes of her personal true stories, she shows how she has used all of these techniques in her own life; such as, protection from catastrophic weather, like keeping away tornado, flood, forest fire, hurricane—and how she brought her lost dog home, five times, safely and quickly. You also learn the meanings of clairvoyant inner vision symbolisms and metaphors to help you better understand your own sensed and heightened perceptions and psychic experiences.

To quicken the integration process of your own Higher Self consciousness, Charol has added advanced soul meditations and exercises, and ten new universal laws, all of which she received directly as auditory dictation from the Universal I Am Consciousness, her own Oversoul (Higher Self), Angels of Serendipity, and Ascended Master Djwhal Khul.

Amazing heartwarming story of animal love!

This is so incredible and wonderful – that I had to share it!
Received in email, from TV interview by biologist Professor Krajewski, who interviewed this fisherman for Globo Television:
The Penguin and the Fisherman
The Penguin and the   Fisherman – Best Buddies !    
 Today’s most heartwarming story is brought to you from a beach in Brazil. It’s the story of a South American Magellanic penguin who swims five thousand miles each year to be reunited with the man who saved his life.
 Retired bricklayer and part time fisherman Joao Perei de Souza, seventy-one, who lives in an island village just outside Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, found the tiny penguin, covered in oil and close to death, lying on rocks on his local beach in 2011.  Joao cleaned the oil off the penguin’s feathers and fed him a daily diet of fish to build his strength. He named him Dindim.
 The prodigal penguin returns
After a week, he tried to release the penguin back into the sea. But, the bird wouldn’t leave. ‘He stayed with me for eleven months and then, just after he changed his coat with new feathers, he disappeared,’ Joao recalls. And, just a few months later, Dindim was back. He spotted the fisherman on the beach one day and followed him home.
Look who’s back
For the past five years, Dindim has spent eight months of the year with Joao and is believed to spend the rest of the time breeding off the coast of Argentina and Chile. It’s thought he swims up to five thousand miles each year to be reunited with the man who saved his life.
“I love the penguin like it’s my own child and I believe the penguin loves me,” Joao said. “No one else is allowed to touch him. He pecks them if they do. He lays on my lap, lets me give him showers, allows me to feed him sardines and pick him up.”
It’s thought Dindim believes the fisherman is also a penguin
‘Everyone said he wouldn’t return but he has been coming back to visit me for the past four years He arrives in June and leaves to go home in February and every year he becomes more affectionate as he appears even happier to see me.’
Biologist Professor Krajewski, who interviewed the fisherman for Globo Television, told The Independent: ‘I have never seen anything like this before. I think the penguin believes Joao is part of his family and probably a penguin as well. ‘When he sees him he wags his tail like a dog and honks with delight. And, just like that, the world seems a kinder place again.
