This month I'm talking about passion. Who can live without passion? Passion for life, passion for food, passion for family, passion for friends, passion for God, passion for travel and passion for writing. Well, you can put them in order to suit yourself. Each one of us will have a different priority. But if you're reading this, chances are somewhere in the hierarchy you have a Passion for Writing. And you therefore need passion to permeate your writing...
Here are some quotes on passion from brainyquote.com.
Passion is energy. Feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you.
Nothing great in the world has ever been accomplished without passion.
It is obvious that we can no more explain a passion to a person who has never experienced it than we can explain light to the blind.
Someone with a huge passion for writing is our friend Roland Yeomans. Roland has a competition going and there's just 1 day left to enter his End of Days contest..
Basically all you have to do to be entered in the contest is to post about the contest. However, if you have read his novel End of Days and post a review on Amazon, you will also be entered into the contest. Do both and you're entered twice.
The prize: A signed Robert Downey Jr poster, or a signed hard copy of The Art of Michael Whelan.
See Roland's blog for complete details, and for links to all his published novels, including the latest New Orleans Arabesque.
So at the moment I'm in Fiji. Many of you know I'm passionate about travel. I'm visiting with blogger friend Nas Dean from Romance Book Paradise. Now I know Fiji is a paradise. Thanks Nas for having me and trusting me with your home while you head to the U S of A! Bon Voyage. I'm able to spend a lot of uninterrupted time writing in paradise.

So I'll be combining my passion with travel - meeting new people, experiencing new cultures - with my passion for writing . Can't wait to set some of my stories in this Fijian paradise.
