Author Interview – Kelly Lowe

If you could live any where in the world where would you live? I’ve always thought that I wanted to live on a sailboat and sail around the world, until I worked on delivering a sailboat from Florida to St. Marteen.  We were hit by heavy weather and the boat almost sank.  This cured my lust for the open seas.

So I would have to say that I consider myself to be very fortunate in that I live on the beach, which to me is far better than being in a boat on the ocean.  As I watch the sailboats traveling north in the summer and south in the winter I have a great appreciation of how hard they are working to reach their destination.   And as I sit on my balcony I raise my glass of wine and toast them for the lifestyle they have chosen, and I am grateful that I have chosen mine.

What is your favorite season? I enjoy observing the changes of seasons. Since I live on the beach, I find it especially interesting to compare the sunrises as the sun travels from the northern to southern latitudes.  Since I am an astrologer I enjoy observing the seasonal movement of all of the planets. It’s amazing how different the sky appears at different time of the year.

I especially love the summer months because the days seem to long.  I wake up earlier, motivated to exercise.  I love to swim.  The YMCA were I swim has an outdoor pool and it’s a lot more enjoyable to swim in the summer—although I do swim year round.  Thankfully they do close the pool when the temperature drops below 40 degrees.

How do you write? I can’t even imagine how Shakespeare, Mark Twain or anyone wrote prior to the widespread use of the computer.  My computer is in my home office which is where I like to start my day.  When I was writing my book “An Astrologer’s Journey” I got into the discipline of wakening up at 5 a.m. every morning and writing.  I woke up energized and ready to write.  I was inspired.

When a thought came to me when I was away, I would jot down notes.  I always carried a note pad in my purse.  I have never been motivated to get a iPod, but guess it would come in handy for those inspirational moments.

Now that my book has been published, I have gotten out of the habit of my morning writing ritual.  But I still use my home/office computer.

Where do you get support from, do you have friends in the industry? My book has been favorably reviewed by the two leading periodicals in the field of Astrology, so I have met writers and reviewers that way. They have helped me raise my profile in general in the industry. I was very fortunate when I finally decided, or I should say was motivated, to write my book, “An Astrologer’s Journey,” in that I had the support of good friends.  For example, my yoga instructor, who is a very good writer herself, volunteered to edit and proof my work as I was writing.  She was also instrumental in helping me find a professional editor and publisher, with whom I became good friends.   He turned out to be a very inspirational and a motivating factor during my laborious, intense writing days. I don’t know that I would have stuck with it had it not been him.  There is something about have another person being involved or interested in your work that is motivating.

How much sleep do you need to be your best? Fortunately, I learned a long time ago to accept that I am a person who requires at least 8 to 9 hours sleep a night.  Many years ago when I had my first astrology reading, I learned that my Mars was in the sign of Pisces which was indication of a person who needed a lot of sleep.  I had always known that about myself; the astrology reading just validated it and helped to accept it.

I don’t beat myself up for it, nor do I try to keep up with people who don’t require as much sleep as I do.  I just accept that everyone has their own requirements.  What was really tuff when my son was born.  He was a child who required and still does require very little sleep.
