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 – 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!

Jacqueline Burke, Author – I Have A Lot To Say!

I’ve always been a great listener; a quality I am proud of!  I’ve found over the years, I’ve been known for being that person to go to when someone needs to unload their thoughts without being judged.  Something I’m very proud of, but I’m also craving for my voice to be heard!  I have a lot to say!

I do not regret helping others in their time of need, and in fact I enjoy helping others.  I also want to help myself.  A reason for writing!

My mind is full of creative projects, which stem from all that I want to say and all I’ve ever wanted to say.  I pour my heart out in my writing, I solve all my problems in my writing, and I heal in my writing.  I have given myself the gift of communication in my writing and I will never regret following my dream of becoming a writer.  Writing has cleared my path to be able to express myself!

I have an endless amount of projects that will be released in the near future; some still need to age like a fine wine, but I’m comforted knowing they are still there gaining strength!

If you are struggling to be heard – WRITE!  Your heart can be heard if you do not have someone who will listen!  By writing all your thoughts down on paper, or by typing them into your laptop, you are unloading all you need to say.  Writing is an outlet to heal your mind.  There is no reason to continue to lock up all your thoughts in your mind; there is only so much storage space in there; release and feel the calming it will bring to your life.

I encourage everyone to dabble in writing your thoughts out, if anything, it is quite liberating to say all that you need to say!  Open that bottle and let it pour out!

Jacqueline Burke, Author – A Passion For Writing

For as long as I can remember, I’ve always had a creative mind.  I went through stages in my life, feeling as though I was not worthy of a writing career.  It wasn’t so much about my ability to write, it was more about intimidation.  I knew I had it in me, but was I good enough?  Yes!  It was just a matter of sorting through all my creativity and a matter of time!  Putting it all into perspective!

As we all know, things do not happen overnight!  Boy isn’t that the truth!  We may have to wait, days, months, and even years, but eventually if we stay true to our passion for writing, then it will eventually all fall into place.

This mindset is true for anything you may feel extremely passionate about; a hobby, a sport, a goal, or a career, but the reality of it all is that great things are worth waiting for.  Timing, growth, and finding peace in your passion is key!

My passion for writing has no limits; I find I can write fiction, non-fiction, music and even handbooks – I’ve harnessed it all and to be honest, by doing so has brought complete fulfillment to my life.

I want you all to know, all great passions in your life are possible with dedication.  If you do not put any pressure on yourself to accomplish your passions, then you are eliminating frustration.  Live each day with passion in your heart, focus on your passions daily (even if you are just thinking about them), and stay true to what is driving you in your heart!  You will accomplish everything you set out to do without pressure; enjoy each day just knowing you have a passion in your life.

Jacqueline Burke, Author – Divas Don’t Do Drama

Yes, there are Diva’s out there that are very hard to please; the more successful they become, the more attitude they get!  A “true” Diva in my eyes; remains humble, no matter how much success they have achieved.

A Diva Does Not Do Drama!

A Diva should pride themselves on mentoring others; not just in becoming a success in business, but in becoming a success as a human being.  A true Diva will remain humble and always remember where they came from.

A Diva, at times, gets a bad rap, but it doesn’t always have to be that way.  It is time for change!  Diva’s are not always so dramatic!

A Diva can be one of class, one who prides themselves on sharing Peace, one who cares about mentoring our youth in a positive way, and one who can be successful but yet remains humble.

Diva’s don’t always have to be associated with Drama!  Instead, they can become an Icon who makes a difference.

Even the “Diva” stereotype can be changed!
