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!
