In other news, my jogging is up to 14 miles per week. Yay! And final edits on the vamp novel are speeding along nicely. If all goes according to plan I'm gonna make my May book deadline with no problem, and this HAWT novel will be published shortly afterwards. What can I say? Dray is the most romantic, sexy vamp! The man just melts me. *swoon*
Hard to believe, but my birthday is coming up on Saturday. Damn, there must be some mistake! No way this frisky chick could be turning 54, ya know? *lmao* Thanks, everyone, for the birthday wishes and cards that have been pouring in all week. I truly have the best fans and readers in the world. You ROCK!!!
Okay, here's another short blog post from my blog at Pagan-Playground (http://www.pagan-playground.com/Laura_Stamps). It's a Witchy blog post rather than an erotic one, cause I'm saving all my sexy writing these days for Dray and final edits on that Pagan vamp novel. However there are soooooo many erotic sex scenes in this awesome novel you can bet I'll be posting excerpts on this blog when it's published in May. *kinky grin*

Being an Extremely Casual Witch *lol*
Damn! I added one new word to the circle of protection I cast around myself today, and it blew my mind so much I couldn't remember the rest of the words to the casting. And I've been casting this circle every day for over a decade. *shakes my head*
It took seven tries to get it right. I was laughing like crazy the whole time, saying "Okay, Take #4!" til I got to the 7th try and finally got it.
Fortunately, Bast, the Fey, the Rune Spirits who walk with me, and now my Guardians know I'm a really laid-back chick when it comes to rituals and spellcasting. I talk to all of them as if we were best buds on our way to shop at the mall, cause most of them have been with me for a long time. They know I'm gonna mess up occasionally and have to start over. It doesn't bother me in the least, and they cut me a lot of slack, so it obviously doesn't bother them either.
Plus, I rarely use anything in my spellcasting besides my finger for a wand. My spells mostly work on "intent" more than anything else. Of course, I can even screw intent up if I can't remember the words to the spell, or if my mind does a Valley-Girl zoning out kinda thing in the middle of it. But they expect that from me, too. I'm psychic so the spirits talk to me 24/7, meaning I have many conversations going on in my head at the same time. Hey, DO NOT call the men in the white coats just yet, okay? lmao!!
Anyway, does this make my spellcasting/rituals less effective? Nah, everything works just the same.
So if you're like me, a seasoned Witch who's been at it for a long time, or a beginner, don't freak when you mess up. Just start over and do it again til you get it right. The spirits in the other realms know we're human (or in my case part human *grin*), and we're doing the best we can.
The most important things in a ritual or spell are "intent" and "sincerity." If you've got that, trust me, you'll do just fine.
