Jacqueline Burke, Author – In My Bubble Inspiration

“In My Bubble”, now has many meanings!

Here is some “In My Bubble” Inspiration!

First, I have always been somewhat of an introvert, and I quite liked being the silent one in the corner.  I was always personable and I interacted very well with others, on the job, in a group setting, and with family, but I preferred to be in my own space (bubble).  I was the listener, not the chatterbox!  I suppose, this could be looked at, as living in a bubble.

Second, I was raised an only child, but I was also raised growing up with many cousins, who at times, were like having siblings.  I never felt I missed out on the connection brothers and sisters have with each other.  Some automatically refer to only children as living in a bubble, because some only children are found to be on the “shy” side.

Third, I’m a firm believer, due to having an extreme amount of creativity floating around in my mind on a regular basis,  with writing out all those ideas, stories, songs, scripts, and even recipes, allowed me to never feel lonely.  Even though I was by myself in my bubble, it was never boring.

See, there are many ways of living in a bubble!  My Bubble is a very comfortable place!

In my past, some would say, “she lives her life in a bubble!”  I refuse to see anything wrong with that; sometimes, people need a place to escape too which can bring them peace.

The point is, if someone is happy regardless of whether it works for you or not, then just be happy for them.  Whether you enjoy time alone, or you prefer crowds, the bottom line is the importance of what makes someone comfortable.

Now that “we are all” living in a time of seclusion and quarantine, I find more than ever, I’m creating more and more in my bubble.  The creativity has been endless; I can’t type fast enough with all these ideas I have floating around in that colorful bubble of mine.

Regardless, if you like to live in a bubble, or you prefer constant noise around you, as long as you are happy, that is the main thing!  Just as long as you are making the best out of it and finding something good in each day!

I hope you can find your own creative space in your bubble; it can be a very happy place!

Jacqueline Burke, Author – It’s Time!

It’s Time!  I’ve taken the past couple of weeks to, for lack of better words, “get a grip” on reality.  I will admit, the last 14 days have been ones of shock and anxiety; something I share with the rest of the World.  However, it is time to stand tall, strong, and motivated to be part of the solution.

My family and I have been in our home for 14 days now; only to leave once, to pick up some groceries.  We have decided,  we now can lock ourselves down for a month, before we will need to venture out to get more supplies.  We are trying to be as proactive as possible!

There will be a lot of writing done during this time, and trust me, It’s Time!

Not to long ago, I had a thought going through my mind about how, “we never seem to have enough time”, well now we have lots of it!

The In My Closet series was written with “Time” in mind.  Since everyone is so busy with their schedules and families, I wrote each book in this series, to be read in just over an hour or hour and a half.  This way, if someone was on their lunch hour, they could read a book on their break/breaks, or you could read these books, just before you go to bed at night.

It’s Time, I get back to my projects, there will be a lot of updates and “coming soon” posts.  I just wanted to check in with you to remind you we all have Time!  This World has given us more time to “stay in our homes”, “spend time with family” or “dive into creativity”, let us make good use of our time, as we are all doing it Together!!

Love to you all and wrap yourself up in Creativity!  It’s Time!!

Jacqueline Burke, Author – New Release – Star of Night

I am very happy, nervous, excited, and thrilled to announce, the third novel to the “In My Closet” series has just been released today!

http://www.amazon.com/dp/1729564933/ref=sr_1_2?keywords=Jacqueline+Burke&qid=1583071596&sr=8-2

I am so grateful for the support of all my followers, my friends, and my family for encouraging me to continue with this series.  It is far from over, there is so much more to tell, but for today, I’m going to sit in disbelief and in shock.

This has been a very emotional series to write; as time goes by, it does get easier, but after writing the first draft, I need to sit and cry for a while in order to continue writing.  This series is something I’m sure everyone can relate too; I’m hoping you will find comfort in reading this series knowing you are not alone.

Once again, I’d like to thank you for your support; you have warmed my heart.

Jacqueline Burke, Author – Getting Lost In A Story

Over the past year and a half, I have been writing the third novel, Star of Night, in the “In My Closet” series.  Although, I could have released this novel six months ago, I held on and got lost in the story.

I would be ready to release it, then I would add more and more, and even more.

There are times, when writing, we have an idea of where we would like a novel to end up; Star of Night took on a life of its own.  Out of the three novels in this series, Star of Night pulled me deeper and deeper to the true meaning of writing from your heart.  My heart ached with every word I typed, I cried, I laughed and I even found myself dreaming at night about these characters.

It seems, each novel I write in this series, brings me to a point of reflection in my own life.  This series has made me who I am today; a compassionate woman.

I have allowed myself to get lost in this series, and especially Star of Night, as in doing so, I found an endless amount of growth for myself.

I will be releasing Star of Night towards the end of February 2020, as now when I read this novel (trust me, I’ve read it over and over again) I am content, I am at peace, and I am thrilled with the end result – there will be fourth novel to add to the series.

Jacqueline Burke, Author – An Idea Comes When You Least Expect It

My passion in writing, has been a 30 year journey!  I’ve kept many journals, with ideas, stories, concepts, characters, and simply my own personal thoughts on my day.  I am grateful for writing everything down, as you never know when inspiration will hit you!

For example, last Summer, we were living in our trailer at our campsite; I found myself in a laundry facility doing our weekly loads, when there it was – inspiration!  I’m grateful I had my journal with me!  I know I received quite a few looks from other people, as I was not participating with their conversations.  Instead, I was simply sitting down, in between loads, writing in my journal.  In doing so, I escaped to a place where I could no longer hear the thumping and rattling of the overloaded washing machines, or the humming of the dryers.  The laundry facility did not exist in this time of inspiration.

My ideas come to me, when I least expect it!  I used to feel panic when an idea would hit me, as I was putting pressure on myself to remember every detail until I could get home to write it down.  Hence the reason I now keep my journals with me at all times.

I still love the feeling of pen to paper!

I have boxes and boxes filled with all my ideas and thoughts; some have been turned into lyrics for music,  ideas for novels, and what I refer to as my, “mother-load” box, are my ideas for eventually diving into writing for film/television.  The one thing that I have accomplished, is controlling the panic.  Due to having my journals and writing things down as they come, the information is now safe and locked in!  They are just aging and becoming full bodied while I type them into my laptop.  No more panic!

Grab a journal and a pen, and WRITE!  Write down your thoughts, get it out!  You never know where your inspiration will come from; harness it when it makes its appearance!
