NEAR DEATH

 

Okay fellow bloggers, I’m willing to admit I acted a little irrational the other day. It is NOT my blog keeping me from getting my writing accomplished. Seems like I made a vow not to make excuses. Didn’t work out so good. But back on the horse I go.

The new manuscript I’m working on deals a lot with the transition from life to death, and the spirit world beyond. The working title is THE DITCHMASTER.

Like a lot of people, I can’t say for sure exactly what happens the moment you pass on. There are those that were pronounced dead but were brought back, and returned to recount stories of bright lights and even touching the hand of God. Do I believe this? Well, I can’t NOT believe it if I haven’t experienced it myself. No one can prove it DIDN’T happen.

Do we pass through the tunnel of light? Or is it just the left over static in our brain leaching out?  

So what are your thoughts on the subject? I’ve been doing some research and have come across a few interesting stories. Do you have anything you could share-either direct or indirect knowledge?

Happy writing!

SUBNOTE-I have two short stories ready to submit and finally finished my BLURB for the Ditchmaster. Hope to have it plotted within the week and back to work on it!

Glad to see you're back! Keep up the good work...

I can't say I have much to offer about what happens after death. I recall a statement from the Apostle Paul about watching out for overly detailed accounts. Other than that, I just know who I'll be with, not really how or where exactly.

Glad you're back! I have nothing to add. Last year I started a piece that has to do with grief with some supernatural elements to it but I never finished it. I still think about it so I hope to get back to it.

BTW, I sent out a short story too. Mailed it last week. But I've been busy with doing more line edits--not fun. I'm reading the entire manuscript out loud so I can catch things. Hope to get it to the editor by Friday.

It's a mystery. Wrote on my blog tonight about heaven. I've done some reading from other people like Don Piper who says he was taken to heaven. Written by Cecil Murphy. Good inspiring story. Some will believe, some will not. I believe there is an afterlife.
