E-squared: Experiment 5

If you haven’t read my post on “E-squared” by Pam Grout and the book’s experiments that I’m trying (and documenting), I suggest reading that first so my experiment posts make sense. You can read that first post here


Experiment #5: The Dear Abby Principle

It goes without saying that I love anything that mentions the “Twilight Zone” TV series. While reading over experiment number 5, I laughed at Grout’s reference to this show, saying that this experiment “is not some weird Twilight Zone-like anomaly”. I also liked this experiment because it addresses the issue of inner guidance. Halfway into these experiments, I admit I’m having my share of doubts and have unanswered questions, so putting this exercise here is perfect timing, in my opinion.


In this experiment, you are to ask a question and then await an answer within 48 hours. You don’t necessarily have to be stuck at a crossroads. It can be a general question about your life that you need help with.

My question: Do I have what it takes to be an author?

Answer: So, maybe I was paying more attention to things or looking harder than usual for any signs of answers to my question, I don’t know, but I’m happy with the results. Within the 48 hours I waited to get a reply to my question to the universe, I received multiple messages about new opportunities, surpassed 50,000 “reads” of my book, Wish You Were Here, on Wattpad, and was invited to submit my work to a contest. It’s not a lot, but it’s all positive, which tells me I’m on the right path. Maybe it’ll be a slow progression, but at least it’s progressing, right?

What about you? Do you have any unanswered questions you’d like answered?
