A quiet weekend for me! I refused to go out into the poppy-apocalypse traffic, except to run necessary errands close to home. However, kudos to the city, county and state agencies, including law enforcement, for really stepping up to improve and control things much better!
As for writing, I think the fact that I used a scrub brush on my kitchen floor to clean the grout might illustrate how much I avoided writing. I knew it would cause me pain, but physical pain is better than the endless mental battle pain. I don’t think anyone would be surprised to learn that while I’m personally very happy (truly!), I’ve been a little depressed professionally. I now regret all the times I thought Writer’s Block might just be a little laziness. HA!!! I’ve worked untold hours with easily a thousand pages on this book–it’s not laziness, it’s…
You know what? Let’s not talk about it. I will fight my way though because that’s how I am. I love all my characters and I’m going to give them all the happy ending they deserve. Justice and Liza, and one day, Eli and Ram from the Wing Slayers (even if no one is left to read their stories!)
In the meantime, this weekend I read a psychological thriller I loved, STILLHOUSE LAKE by Rachel Caine. One thing I know for sure, reading books I love, and lots of them, will help me with that elusive breakthrough I’m searching for. I really loved the pacing, and stayed up late reading. Although according to Wizard, I never sleep anyway, LOL!
Now I really want to know, how was your weekend? I hope none of your are caught up in the awful flooding in Nebraska and surrounding states of the midwest. It’s been terrible to see all those lives, farms, homes and businesses severely impacted or destroyed. Please tell me you all are okay.
