Do You Need A SLAPP?

When was the last time you open up to your inner thoughts and created a manuscript of your words? When was the last time you had a conversation about a story that was burning inside of you? Do you need a SLAPP?

There is a lot of noise around. The airwaves are cluttered with information beyond what we have seen. Is there a quiet place on the planet?

I recall going to Cuba for vacation. On arrival, I soon realize I was totally locked off from the rest of the world. I had no means of getting in touch with anyone to say “I arrived safely and I am okay.” It was a scary feeling. In an effort to get a message out to someone, I spoke with the concierge to see if I could get some internet access.

The response given placed me in a state of wondering if I had made the right choice for my vacation. Internet service was purchased in advance by the hotel. Once the time they purchased was up they would have to order more time. The person that provides the service I was told had to physically come to the location and reset the time slot. What was I to do?

At that moment I had to assure myself that here I am in a country that was just about 383km from the land of my birth and 2464km from home. I was here alone and did not know anyone. So what was I going to do?

Well, I gave myself a slap and said, let’s make the best with where I am, what I have, and who I am. So I ventured out to experience this new space.

As I did, I started to open up to experiencing life without a dependence on technology and devices. I started to experience connections, people, conversations, and the land. All it took was a slap.

The SLAPP I would like to offer you is your challenge to start that journey to writing. That journey will take you through the pages of writing your manuscript, getting it reviewed, establishing a circle of trust, getting published, and promoting your work.

Everyone has a story. Everyone has had at least one experience that shaped them into who they are today. Not everyone gets to tell that story. Why?

If you are not able to answer that question, then you just might need a SLAPP. Will you join us as we explore that together. I would love to hear your story and join in a journey towards realizing your voice beyond your words.
