Winter Sucks

Well, I've been everywhere when it comes to blogging, but unfortunately I haven't been here. I guess I don't have much to say about myself, or anything in general. I'm a total bore! Maybe it's the time-of-year—it forces one to go into a hibernation mode, just waiting, waiting for March to arrive.

Last week I heard that my edits for The Love Seekers will start up, so that's good news. Maybe working on something again will get me out of this funk. Out of the three, it was probably the most fun to write. I really let Emma do whatever the heck she wanted. So, yeah, you can't beat that. It's every writer's dream to take a character and say, "What am I going to do to you today . . .?" What I love about Emma is, she changes with every affront to her situation. She hurts, she gets mad, she reacts. There's some things in this third book that made me feel so close to her as a fellow woman. She is forced to make some big decisions, and she does face them, and I think she'll surprise readers with the way she evolves throughout the book. Another thing, I had the ultimate experience of writing out what it would be like to be on an 80s 'rock' tour. Pretty crazy! She also goes to Paris, New York, and beautiful Aspen, Colorado. That whole part of the book was like magic to me. I can't even describe it. Hopefully whatever I felt as the writer comes through to the reader, fingers crossed. It was quite something, and I'll never forget the experience. There are times as a writer when you say, can I really pull this off, is this possible, will people believe this? And then there's time you you don't even think, you just create, and that's when the magi happens. It's real, because it's real to you. And that's all that counts.

As always, I thank you fine people for reading my little blog here. Are you sick of winter yet? Have you begun to plan out the garden, or maybe even a delicious beach-side adventure?

Take care and Peace.

  1. "Winter Sucks" and will probably continue to do that for two more months.

    I am looking at a summer vacation stay in SC tonight. I hate to commit so far in advance but when the ice came down this morning, I needed to think of sun and sand. Now I just have to have the courage to click, Add to Cart". Maybe tomorrow.

  2. At my people's beautiful thatched home just south of London, there was a knocker on the door of the main bedroom. We later learned that the previous owner hibernated in Winter, and the knocker was for his maid to use before bringing up his meals etc. What a very sensible man!

  3. It's funny but when it's summer it's hard to imagine the winter and then when winter creeps up, you almost forget what summer's like. Definitely feels like hibernation time here. Your third book, Amy that's brilliant news. Whatever the winter is - you're on your way and in a couple of short months, the Spring will be on it's way too xxx

  4. I am just glad that we are having some sort of winter here in San Diego. We hadn't had one for about 3 years, and brown was the landscape. We even had some frost! My daughter at 1500 elevation had about 2 inches of snow.

    1. Susan, it's a lot like that in Kansas this year. A little snow here and there, not not much. It's in the 40's today, which is awesome!

  5. I'm glad the third book was fun to write!

    I am sick of winter, though. I'm in the process of moving somewhere sunny and warm, and I originally thought I'd be living there by now (and thus skipping all the snow) but I won't be moving for a little while. I can't wait to get more sunshine!
