    Actually, there was a book published back in the 80s (?) titled “A Soprano on Her Head” which dealt with stage fright, performance blockage and other things that can stymie and cripple a performer. Still have my copy from freshman year of music college. The title is from when an opera singer was able to master an aria whilst doing a headstand. Sometimes it is a change of outlook that breaks through the wall. http://www.amazon.com/Soprano-Her-Head-Right-Side-Up-Performances/dp/0911226214

    Since you brought up the subject of “sopranos”:

    R. I. P. James Gandolfini, who played Tony Soprano. His passing was announced yesterday.

    @ Night-gaunt49 re yesterday’s comment…I appreciate constructive criticism but you shouldn’t be so harsh when you don’t know someone’s story. My story is so painful and sad it would make a good book if I could force myself to revisit those memories.

    Read your comment yesterday. Sounds like you write things I like to read. I always loved those minute mysteries. I used to really love science fiction but have gotten away from that. I mostly read mysteries. I, myself, am into crafts – painting, needlework, etc. I always have about 5 things going at a time. I wish I could write but this way I never get writer’s block.

    There are many of us with horrendous stories.
    You may be able to suppress those memories for a while , but life will bring them back with a vengeance, until you confront them face to face.
    The act of writing of your trials will help to lessen the overwhelming grasp it has on your consciousness regardless of whether you choose to ever publish your work or not.

    Most importantly, don’t ever think you are alone!
    Know in your heart that you are a SUPER HERO to have survived these experiences & not let them rule your life.
    It is so easy for someone with NO knowledge of your experiences to judge you on a miniscule amount of information.
    I think it is an AA saying , but it is very true.

    " Those that judge dont matter, & those who matter , don’t judge"
    Take them with a gain of salt, & know that if they were in your shoes, they most likely would be a steaming pile of emotional disfunction.

    Aw shucks, thanks! (kicks an invisible rock underneath the desk). My main book is up to 90K words but still well away from the main plot. I really need an editor and some guidance, but the writing has helped me with many personal issues from the past. I hope to have this puppy available in a not-very-expensive eBook form by the end of the year. My co-workers (who have read individual chapters) have started comparing notes and I am getting some pretty good reviews. Thumbs up for now.

    How was I harsh? Take 10 minutes a day to write? But I didn’t know it was a biography. You can’t fault me for that. You were just talking about “writing” in the most generic sense. My recommendation still holds. If you really want to write, you will make time. Nothing harsh about that at all. I never intended it to be.

    Some use it as therapy for terrible memories. Never to be published, but some have.

    Get him off the couch if there’s nosebleeds involved!

    Right now he is doing everything he can not to write a word. He hasn’t even bothered with an outline. We have no idea of any characters either. Neither does he it seems.
