Mandatory Soul Sister Meeting Agenda: We All Can’t Be Snow White


The story for my book was feeling tired and irrelevant, causing any writing to feel like a chore. I began to fear that I would lose interest in this writing project even though my love for it hadn’t waivered. I was feeling desperate. So I called a mandatory Soul Sister meeting to get some inspiration and hopefully not only breathe but resuscitate a plot – any plot.

Official Minutes of
Mandatory Soul Sister Meeting

Present: Amber, Heather, Jasmine, Lisa and Lorlinda.

Lorlinda opened the meeting: “Sisters I have gathered you here today because I need your help. You see, even though all of you are incredibly talented and interesting, the story has gotten boring. It’s dry. You’re holding back on me. . .”

Heather interrupted: “Boring? Holding back? I let you write about the SWAT team that came to my house.”

Lorlinda countered: “Yeah, but that was the result of wrong information, and you ended up offering them bottled water. I’m sorry Heather, that’s not a story; it’s a side note. Now listen up everyone, I understand each of you are worried about your image but we’ve got a book to write. We all can’t be Snow White; at least not all the time. We need a little witchiness, if that’s a word. Otherwise, there’s no drama. No drama, no story. As an actress Amber, you understand this; don’t you?”

Amber replied: “I only understand that an actor can’t be too careful about the role she plays. Otherwise, she’ll never get the part of Snow White.”

Lorlinda continued: “Okay. Let’s try this another way. At the beginning of this project Lisa was good enough to give me cart blanche with her character.”

Lisa admitted: “Yeah, but I didn’t expect you to take me up on it.”

Jasmine interjected: “I have a question. In the scene where my band is playing at the garden party, did somebody really call me a one hit wonder or are you making that up?”

Lorlinda complained: “See, this is exactly what I mean. We can’t be so sensitive. It’s fiction, everybody. Now, I’m going to ask each of you to be more interesting. You’re entertainers – entertain me.”

Heather proclaimed: “You want entertainment? We can give you entertainment.”

Jasmine confessed: “We were holding back because it was you we didn’t want to embarrass.”

Amber declared: “Prepare to have your mind blown.”

Lisa snickered: “The question is can you handle it?”

Lorlinda praised: “That’s my Soul Sisters. Now go out there and blow my mind.”

Motion to Blow Lorlinda’s Mind was unanimously approved.

Meeting adjourned in time for Happy Hour.

      How exciting Lucy. I’m ecstatic to meet another person writing their soul story. We must keep in touch and cheer each other on. This journey can be treacherous and daunting, along with being joyful and whimsically intoxicating. I’m cyberly (love making up words) sending you creative energy to spark your inspiration. 😀 Lorlinda xo

      Thank you Jamie for visiting my blog. I didn’t realize you were also a novel writer but not surprised. I would love to check out your books. Do you have separate website where you sell your work? Cyber love to the triple power, Lorlinda 

        Hi Lorlinda! Here’s my website: If you look on published works there is an anthology that I’m in with my oldest child (published by LaChance, NY 2010) called Voices of Bipolar Disorder. You can also find that on Amazon. That was work for hire and is nonfiction, but is a fascinating 40 person first person accounts of living with a person (child, parent, lover) or living with bipolar disorder. My first novel is currently being shopped to editors in NY–fell out of acquisitions last year and hasn’t found the perfect editor yet, but it will eventually.) I’m currently working on my second. There are a number of articles (as I use to freelance) in the “library” section on my site. Do you have a website? Where are you in the writing process? It’s–for sure–a journey:) Fun getting to know you! Jamie

          Thank you for replying Jamie. I’m working on two fiction projects (one with a partner and the other solo). Both are in the initial draft phase. I have only two websites: this one and my artist website. Currently, I’m spending more time painting than writing. I go back and forth. Best of luck to you in finding that right editor. This certainly is a journey – an up and down journey, and the reason I feel like I’m over my head. 🙂
          It’s fun getting to know you too! Hugs, Lorlinda

      Thank you so much Gina. I had fun writing it. My characters needed shaking up. Hopefully, they understand what I need from them now. If this doesn’t work I’m going to send them over to your blog for some inspiration. (LOL)
      Cyber Hugs, Lorlinda
