We spend so much time talking to other authors, it's easy to put aside the fact that we both write. It also gives us a chance to relax after the holidays. So, tune in for Dellani's Tea Time and enjoy!

    Red River Radio Tales from the Pages Presents the Holiday Show!

    in Books

    Welcome to the Holiday Show for Red River Radio Tales from the Pages with host Barbara Ehrentreu. Today returning guests from past shows will be reading either their original holiday story or one they wish to share with us. My guests so far will be: Dellani Oakes, author and Blog Talk Radio host of Dellani's Tea Time,  and Christine Bruchner, aspiring author and writer, former DJ, chat room hostess and transcriber for most of the Blog Talk Radio hosts. There might be some surprise guests as well. As everyone knows this show is usually on every 4th Thursday, but because of the fact it is Christmas Eve it was moved here and I have to thank Dellani Oakes for relinquishing her usual time. It is the season of peace and joy and I urge anyone who wishes to call into the show to do so. If you have a holiday story you want to share and you are a previous guest from any year you are welcome to call in and read it. Also welcome are anyone who wants to talk with the guests or has a question for them or the host. Peace and love to all and sorry for the short notice.

Erica Collins is the author of Eric and Ruby's Healthy Juice Stand, which is a book written in English, Spanish and French and delves into the issues of eating healthy for children so they can stave off disease and live a better life. It is all about teamwork and includes games and recipes. Erica will be talking about how winning a contest inspired her to write this book and how it has changed her life. For the first part of the program, I will be taking callers to discuss anyone's books. This is going to be a one time offer, since most of my shows begin at 4pm with the author. Today, the author can join us only at 5. So please come and listen and call into the show to talk about your book.

    Red River Radio What's Write for Me

    in Books

    Dellani and Rachel are delighted to welcome back Janet and Chris Morris: authors, musicians, horse lovers....


    Janet's work has been a long time favorite of Dellani's, begun when she discovered The Thieves World books and fell in love with Tempus Thales. Delighted to find out that Janet was not only writing new material, but had brought out authors cuts of her favorite stories, Dellani was in heaven. (Unlike some of Janet's characters who are in hell.) Author of more books than one can easily count, we're thrilled to have her back.


    Janet's husband, Chris, is a fantastic musician and has co-authored some of the many books. He has also done recordings of several of their titles and, we hope, can be persuaded to read for us again. (Because, I'll be honest, he has one of the sexiest voices ever.) 


    We're going to have a wonderful time talking about books, writing, music and, of course, the beautiful horses that Chris and Janet raise. So tune in for a great time.

    DUCK SYNDROME

    EPISODE #144:

     

     

    What is duck syndrome – and how it has become a toxic part of your life

    Why fighting against it will increase your happiness.

    5 specific ways to stop the syndrome

    WHAT IS IT?

     

    In 2003, Duke jolted academe with a report describing how its female students felt pressure to be “effortlessly perfect”: smart, accomplished, fit, beautiful and popular, all without visible effort. At Stanford, it’s called the Duck Syndrome. A duck appears to glide calmly across the water, while beneath the surface it frantically, relentlessly paddles.

     

     

    The perception of a perfect life

    "believes social media is a huge contributor to the misperception among students that peers aren’t also struggling."

     

    It's easy to see how this could contribute to a feeling of loneliness and helplessness.

     

     

     

    WHY I’M THINKING ABOUT DUCKS:

     

    Because Ellie is obsessed.

    Because I have suffered from both sides of effects of duck syndrome

     

    WHY TO FIGHT AGAINST IT:

     

    Inauthentic

    Isolating

    Exhausting

    False and based on lies from our enemy

    Discourages us and discourages others – lifts no one up

    Self-glorifying – when we fall prey to duck syndrome we are focused on impressing others, not necessarily on making an impression in the world

     

    HOW TO STOP THE SYNDROME:

     

    Be honest with your struggle

    Be honest with your struggle

    Let people see your mess

    Live to love and build up others – not yourself

    Acknowledge your hard work (and give yourself periods of rest to glide)

    Change your goals (go against perfectionistic thinking and other people’s opinions / strive to significance, not success)
