Hello, gentle readers! Happy holidays!
It’s Tuesday. Yes, I know I’m late….I usually write my blog on Sunday because I like to be prepared…I was a Girl Scout for several years so I learned that lesson really well.
It’s a beautiful day in my little corner of
Even so, I will admit that I cried today. Oh, not because I’m sad or hurt or
angry (yes, I cry when I’m angry), but because today, I spent a good deal of
time chopping onions! Arizona
For those of you who’ve read my little blog before, you know that several times a year, I make a big batch of spaghetti sauce (with meatballs and sausage) and today’s the day, hence the onions and the tears. I’ve also peeled and crushed six cloves of garlic….did you know you can burn your fingers with garlic juice?
But it’s all good!
What else have I been up to since I last wrote to you? Well, I finished my last work in progress and sent it off to my publisher and I’ve started a new story. Actually, I’ve started four (well, one I started a while ago but picked back up). Why four? I find I’m having a hard time settling on one to finish. My options are two different westerns, a sequel to something I’ve already written or another Civil War story. My problem seems to stem from the fact that while I’m working on something and trying hard to finish, my characters from other stories talk to me…constantly. Now that I’ve finished the last story in the MacDermott Brothers trilogy, the other characters in my head have suddenly gone silent. What’s up with that? I couldn’t get them to stop talking before and now, they don’t want to talk with me at all? Hmmm. Not sure what I need to do to get them to start talking to me again, but I’ll be working on it. In the meantime, I need to go stir the sauce.
Have a wonderful holiday, gentle readers. I wish you peace and joy and most of all, happy reading!
Until next time, remember to spread kindness wherever you go.
