ONE LIFE Update

ONE LIFE update: on submission with editors/publishers in the New Year! Very exciting.

Determination

"Even the most daring and accomplished people have undergone tremendous difficulty. In fact, the more successful they became, the more they attributed their success to the lessons learned during their most difficult times. Adversity is our teacher. When we view adversity as a guide towards greater inner growth, we will then learn to accept the wisdom our soul came into this life to learn."
~Barbara Rose~

ONE LIFE: Early Reader's Take

Written by: Charlee

I was one of the few fortunate people who had the opportunity to read ONE LIFE when it was first written (even before edits :) ). It was such an exciting read from beginning to end. I was frequently blown away by the shocking twists and turns in the adventurous story line. I can't tell you how many times I said "Oh My God" out loud during this read.

The love story really pulled me in as well; it has been over a year since I first read the book I still have a 'crush' on a certain character.

I love it when a book pulls me in and I can imagine myself as the main character. Suddenly the real world disappears and I become lost in the words on the page; it's the best feeling. This feeling is also why I love to read. ONE LIFE did this for me and it will do the same thing for anyone else who reads it.

Food for Thought

There are worse things in the world to be accused of than being an intellect or a dreamer (or both). How different the world would be if everyone decided to forget about thinking big...and dreaming big. Passion and determination are powerful driving forces behind many life-defining and life-saving discoveries. We each have our roles to play, but often it's the people who stray from conventional boundaries who make the impossible...possible.

"Humanity needs practical men, who get the most out of their work, and, without forgetting the general good, safeguard their own interests. But humanity also needs dreamers, for whom the disinterested development of an enterprise is so captivating that it becomes impossible for them to devote their care to their own material profit."

~Marie Curie (French Physicist. Twice a winner of the Nobel prize.)

How to Achieve Your Writing Goal

I posted this image on my Facebook this afternoon. If you would like feel free to add LA Cadieux as a friend on Facebook.

The cartoon character in this illustration is me this weekend...except with a thicker chain...and a female character with an iPhone...and a laptop instead of a desktop. Enjoy!

One Day

A fantastic, fantastic movie: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GU4qLmIXbOE

Grab a tissue box and watch it; actually, grab the book and read it!


"All dream but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was in vanity, but the dreamers of the day are dangerous, for they may act their dream with open eyes to make it possible." T. E. Lawrence
