About Me

Welcome to my blog. Β  πŸ™‚

My name is Lynne (that’s pretty obvious from what I’ve called my blog, lol) and my blog posts range from things that amuse me and praise for inspiring people to rants about cruelty to animals with odd (sometimes very odd) thoughts about God, mind power and spirit thrown in. Β Plus a bit of art, sport, TV and films. Well, anything that catches my attention really.

I do fractal art which is art that is created using a computer program that translates mathematical formulae into patterns. My designs are available to buy on T-shirts, mugs, stickers, keyrings, clocks, dinner plates and many other gifts from http://www.zazzle.co.uk/LynneLawer*. You can personalise them with your own messages. All of my fractals that you can see on the right of this screen are pure, untouched fractals although they probably don’t look like it to those of you who are familiar with fractals. The only exception to this is ‘Angel’ which has been slightly tidied up (the top part of the purple swirl was a bit ragged and I couldn’t get it to go smoothly no matter what I did so I had to add some extra pixels on a photo editor). I love my fractals which is kind of funny as I never liked abstracts before I started doing them.

I did mediumship training for a few years at Tony Stockwell’s Studio in Wickford, England, where my tutors were Tracy Higgs and Lynn Probert. I used to run my own physical mediumship circle, which was great fun and we got some interesting EVPs (Electronic Voice Phenomena). That is the term for when you don’t hear anything in the room with you but you can hear voices when you play back a recording. I have a ghost box and once we tried to contact Archangel Michael. We asked for whoever was there to say their name on the ghost box. It said ‘Michael’ so that was really cool.Β I’ve also been on some paranormal investigations (ghost hunts) and I’m fascinated by cryptozoology, aliens, ghosts and anything paranormal.

I love Strictly Come Dancing (dancing and sparkly things – joy), Pointless, The Last Leg, Q.I., Castle, Almost Human, Grimm, Murdoch Mysteries and Midsomer Murders. I’ve been at the studios to see Pointless, The Last Leg and Q.I. (which stands for ‘Quite Interesting’) being broadcast/recorded which was very (not ‘quite’) interesting.

I’m inspired by Paralympians and I went to see some of them at the Olympics in London 2012 which was awesome. Β It was also incredible watching blind skiers accompanied by their sighted guides on TV during the Winter Olympics. There were also skiers who only have one leg or no arms. Would you throw yourself down a mountain if you couldn’t see where you were going or while balancing on one leg or if you couldn’t hold the poles to steady yourself? I’m able-bodied and I won’t do it. They’re amazing athletes and deserve recognition for their bravery and their achievements.

I enjoy going to old manor houses and castles (if there is such a thing as past lives, I was a princess, lol).

I failed miserably at doing a children’s book writing course (and another writing course and an art course several years ago) but I succeeded in writing a 50,000 word novel during November 2014 so I’m really proud of that as it was a huge amount of work, a massive time commitment and I did it as a “pantser” – doing it by the seat of my pants (making most of it up as I went along). I’m relieved that I’ve managed to turn my life around from being a failure to being a winner at last! My novel, ‘Bewilderness’, is about a woman who wakes up next to a dead body in a jungle, who doesn’t know who she is or where she is and the strange adventures she has as she tries to find her way home. Hopefully, I’ll get around to editing it soon then I’ll unleash it on the unsuspecting public, lol.

I’m currently (supposed to be) doing a graphics design course and editing my sister’s book, ‘Richard Liveth Yet’, a novel about Richard III, while (I am procrastinating,) working full-time and trying to keep up with the housework.

I hope you enjoy my blog and maybe learn something too.

  2. I think one of the highlights of my LIFE was when I learned about fractals. (Then I learned what hyperbole means, and I had to tone down my response somewhat. LOL) But I do enjoy fractals a bunch. Thanks for the follow. I think I join up for the ride, here.

  3. Wow! I came here simply to thank you for reading my pieces and following my blog, but as I read your introduction, my eyes grew wider with every paragraph. You’re simply intriguing!
    I’ve only heard of fractal art very recently and very briefly. It just baffles me beyond my comprehension, and your work is absolutely gorgeous. Angel and Sparkling ribbons are my favorite.
    Though I’ve never had any personal experience with the paranormal, it all seems very exciting. So, I do hope to read more from your experience with ghost hunting, EVPs, and such!
    Lastly, I really enjoyed reading about your admiration for the disabled. I never knew there were actual sighted guides for blind skiers. Heck, I don’t go down mountains anymore because I’m too much of a baby! I’m inspired by those who overcome their challenges and still have the courage to achieve their dreams.
    So, thanks again for following me, and thus, leading me to you. I sincerely look forward to reading more about your wild world!

  4. Thank you Adelie. I’m glad you like my work. πŸ™‚
    The ghost hunting can be scary but is mostly waiting around in the cold for something to happen. It has been a few years since I last did one.
    I’ve heard that the USA didn’t broadcast much of the London 2012 Paralympics or the Winter Paralympics which is a shame because you are all missing out on some terrific sport plus every single athlete has an amazing back story of obstacles they have had to overcome.
    It is a pleasure to follow you, your posts are very good indeed. I really enjoyed reading the first part of your Steamy Saturday story.
    Wild world? I’m the most boring person I know! lol

  5. Hello Lynne,
    Thanks for stopping by to read my Daily Prompt post! It’s been to long since I have participated, but I loved the topic. Congrats on the work on your Kindle book. My first book, “Addicted T Dimes” came so easy to me, but my next almost done, I’m having a more difficult time getting the endings down & done! Yikes!….LOL.
    So glad to meet you and I’m now following πŸ™‚

    Many Blessings, Catherine Lyon

    • Hello Catherine,
      Thanks, I’ve only just started the book but at least I’ve finally started, lol. Congratulations on being a published author and good luck with getting your latest books finished.
      Thanks for the follow. πŸ™‚

          • No not yet. My first book was formatted and uploaded for me by my publisher, then I did all my book & marketing myself πŸ™‚

            I will be self-publishing my next 2 books, but I’m going to go paperback format 1st, if you do that on Create Space, then Amazon will automatically now format & upload your Kindle for you!

            However, my good friend & author, Art Crandon has the step by step guide to using Kindle self-publishing on his blog! http://www.arthurcrandon.com then click on tab “Help for Newbie, Penniless Writers”…..that page walks you through the whole FREE process!

            Hope it helps….Cat

            • Thanks Cat, that will be very useful. I’ll have to have a look at Create Space. I wasn’t planning to do a printed version but I might change my mind about that.

              I think, mainly, it is fairly easy to just type it in Word and then upload it to the Kindle publishing site. I’m aware that there shouldn’t be any formatting in the document as it will just be ignored. It was mainly my fractals and the cover page I was concerned about as I wasn’t sure what resolution they should be in but, apparently, Kindle ignores that too! lol Hopefully, I’ll figure it out.

              Marketing is the thing I’m dreading. You were brave doing all the marketing yourself. πŸ™‚
