  1. Laura, my half-Lakota mother told me over and over again, “Roland, you must learn to be patient or you will become one.”

    The Irish part of me wants to roar into action with my novel. My Lakota teaching whispers to pull back, get a sense of my surroundings, of the interior of my hero’s mind, of my antagonist’s flaws and ambitions. It’s hard but I work to understand before I act.

    If I do not understand the why of my novel, I will muddle the what of it. I have a tongue-in-cheek post where I describe how a cork board has saved the novels of many a friend who followed my advise. “Meet The Dali-Rama.”

    Here’s the link if you have the time and the inclination to read the scribblings of a man half-listening to William James and half-listening to Lakota wisdom.


    You have a lovely, intelliegent, and creative blog. Thanks for letting me visit, Roland
