Introducing myself and my journal: Desert Bound

About Me:
I am a fiction writer living in the Kalahari desert, South Africa. I am building a dwelling to live in while I experience life in the desert with the Khomani San Bushmen and complete the final book in a series I began ten years ago. So I plan to be here for quite some time.
There is a certain challenge called "sustaining the dream" and in order to do this I have outlined two quickie books both dealing with women's issues-creativity-and love. It is in this area that I am joining the WorldPulse network to share a specific chapter based on an Iranian women born in 1980. I am not a woman and I have never been to Iran. Okay...there is intelligent information available BUT I am looking for emotional-family relationships-interior of home-is there really no water-and only potholed streets? Those details.
I would love to mail this chapter for a discussion group to correct and advise me (with lots of "red ink" please).
Is this the right place for such a request?

My Passions:

My Challenges:
sustaining the dream

My Vision for the Future:
its all in the word

My Areas of Expertise:
surviving the calls of the spirit

This is a great space to connect with a world-wide network of women leaders. I think it would be great if you could post and share your chapter that you're looking for input on as a journal entry. Or, you can share it with our Book Club Group:

I would love to hear more about what your life is like right now living in the Kalahari... sounds fascinating!
