#1 NYT bestselling author Linda Lael Miller


I truly appreciate your patience

This illness has been rough.  The cough and congestion are long gone, but the bone-deep fatigue has been slow to fade.  I’m almost back to normal–as normal as I’ll ever be, anyway–:) and I am eager to write and blog regularly.

Our winners this week are Cheryl Gagne and Pat Yates.  Each of you will receive an autographed book, as will the winners of next week’s contest–two names will be chosen at random, notified by Jen, and announced here.  Just leave a comment, and you’re entered.

I’m almost through the first 40-day cycle of the Vimala Alphabet, and I am so pleased with the results, subtle as they are.  If you decide to check this out for yourself, I would suggest starting with “Your Handwriting Can Change Your Life”, by Vimala Rodgers.  The book is terrific, and it will get you off on the right foot for sure.  

This is a case of do as I say, not as I did.  :) Vimala recommends practicing only a few letters at a time, for 40 days.  I have never been very good at following instructions, which is probably why my results have been subtle–I practiced the entire alphabet.  Granted, I have a pretty good grasp on the letters now, but I might have seen more dramatic changes if I’d focused properly.

That said, I did see results, most notably a significant reduction in stress.  I will be practicing F, R and S in my next 40 days, as these are the letters of creativity, among other things.  I love the practice, and look forward to it every morning; I can feel my brain lighting up as I write.

I’ve been gobbling up the audio books since I got sick, keeping up my bullet journal, and–:)–checking out pictures of Rob Lowe on Google Images.  It’s a dirty job, but somebody’s got to do it.

    Linda I am so glad you are almost back to normal. With me I am not sure what normal is anymore. Sounds like you are staying pretty busy. Hang in there.

    So happy to hear you are coming around. It really kicked me in the butt a couple months ago too. Seems to take forever to get completely over it.

    Glad you are gradually feeling better. I have a chronic illness and whenever I was not feeling well I would read. Now I read all the time.

    Glad to hear you are on the mend. You are so right that someone has to check out the pictures of Rob Lowe, or Taylor Kinney even, who is my latest crush.

    Glad to hear you are doing so much better and pray you will soon feel full of pep again.
    It seems like every time I go to the used book stores I end up finding another one of your book that I don’t have already. I do so love your books. Thank you for all the good reading.

    Saying a little prayer for you to get well soon. It has been a very long illness and you will be quite run down. Maybe some good vitamins will give you your strength back. Hope to hear of some improvement soon.

    Instructions? what are those? maybe i’ll learn them someday but not lightly. since in the middle of CA we now have hit over a 100 they say down some, i think in 90’s or high 80’s, before going back up. Oh well, can’t win them all. glad to hear you’re on the road to recovery. the best, Jo Ann

    Glad to hear you are among the living and writing the blog again. I’ve missed the daily comments. Do you have a plan to write a third “My Lady” book? I love the first two.

    Glad you’re feeling better – it seems the older I get, the harder it is to get back where I was before I got sick. But, on the upside, at least I’m still here!

    As we get older every time we get some sort of illness, it takes us longer to recoup our strength. Glad to hear you are on the mend. Take care and I look forward to always reading your books.
