Jane Sturgeon 'Writing On Water: Self Awareness'

Writing on Water; Self-awareness…

My bank of dreams has held a precious one for over forty years and during the last few months I have been getting up early to sit and write. A loving friend Pete (grandfathersky) suggested I put a board up on my wall, so I could pin all the ideas and titles for the pieces I was writing. He had the feeling it would all come together in that way and he was right.

Over the past few months, as I sat creating with my sewing, an inner drive to reach out and offer practical support to others grew. The dream became more than writing and it evolved into offering a service uniquely tailored to individual needs. Over the years I have held various training and therapy roles under different corporate umbrellas and I now wish to do it in my natural style. I felt by writing a series of books in an open and heartfelt way, that others in need would feel ‘seen’ and able to ask for support.

Pete (grandfathersky) stepped in and formatted the chapters for me and dug me out of a few technical holes, for which I am so grateful. I was in such a pickle that I was tempted to eat my own body weight in chocolate and his encouraging suggestions came from the heart and were ‘spot on’. <3

So, here I am with my first eBook self-published:

‘Writing on Water; Self-awareness’ available here…

          2. Oh yes, Sue, he truly deserved a hug after all that. <3 I can 'see' you picking your dahlias. <3 I have a few things waiting to have the neck knitted and then sewn up. At the moment, I am knitting a blanket in straight stitch in a lovely yarn that knits up as fair isle, without me having to do a thing. It's magic and lovely and about all I can manage right now. Ha ha….hugs and here's to a restful weekend for us all. Much love <3 <3 <3

  3. Congratulations Jane and I am sure your book will mean a lot to many.
    The title itself appeals to me and I will look into it as the subject also interests me.
    May you both fly.

    I saw your post some time ago but as time was tight, decided to revisit to give it the due consideration.
    Love your cover. It hints of self-reflection, serenity and one with nature. And the title speaks volumes. Excellent.
