Cha Cha Sparks* on Purpose

Aug 2, 2023 | Blog Beat, Cha Cha Sparks*

*These words are electric. They light me up.

For some reason, I can’t get it out of my head that my purpose is to write the Cha Cha Beat.

I’ve given up questioning the Universe on this one. I have accepted this path as her divine gift. The Universe wants me to write the Cha Cha Beat. But to be honest, I’m not yet sure why


Did you know that J.K. Rowling worked on her Harry Potter manuscript for seventeen years before finally submitting it to publishers?! 

The Cha Cha Beat will be an evolving body of work. I am not preparing a final draft to submit. I am discovering my Why in real-time. 

Real-time moves real slow.

So slow that it can be easy to think that I haven’t made any progress.—OMG you guys, yesterday, I spent like three hours lost in the backend, tinkering with my blog’s tags and categories. When you are confused and dizzy, it is easy to forget how much progress you’ve made. 


I am grateful to the Internet. And that I do not need to keep the Cha Cha Beat to myself until it is “finished”. I would go crazy. 

The Cha Cha Beat keeps me sane. This is the antidote to my existential crisis. I know that. I just don’t know why.

Originally from the east coast, Cha Cha lives in southern California with her fiance (he’s a plumber) and their bob-tailed cat, Copper Soup.

As a woman, Cha Cha spends her time writing, reading (though not as much as she wishes she did), watching Project Runway (way more than she wished she did—especially since the show ended in 2019), trying to exercise for at least 20 minutes a day (otherwise, she won’t leave the house because she works from home), learning how to manage her money, and talking to herself out loud.

I’m not afraid to say it! Who’s with me?! *:)
