Tuesday Thoughts

The last few days I've vegged out. Can't seem to get the lead out and get to work. It finally dawned on me it was probably my usual late summer/early fall funk brought on by too much rain, too many gray days, a bit of SADS, and not enough moving around.

Part of that is certainly my fault. I chose to sit around. I chose to play endless computer games instead of writing. And I chose to let the world go by. Yep, part of that was avoidance. I confess I'm really not a person who mourns well in a group so in the orgy of remembrance of 9/11, I found other things to do.

But now it's time to get back to work. I've set new goals for myself. Made new plans. We'll see how they go this time.

I'm on Chapter Eleven of Spear from Crazy Woman Cave. That's the middle of the book. Things are coming together. How do you get excited at this point? The middle is where you slog along as a writer. It's probably the toughest and most important part of the book. The middle is where readers will leave if they get bored. It's where all the pieces start fitting together--all the threads become a tapestry.

Yesterday I met two delightful ladies at the swimming pool. I tried to describe the book I'm currently working on and found it's a tough job. That was a bit of a jolt. How am I going to write a synopsis? Or a blurb? Interesting question...

In the meantime, I will persevere. The sun is shining. The weather is cooler. And there are things to do. Have a blessed day.



  1. (waves pom-poms) Go Anny; go Anny; w-r-i-t-e spells WRITE! (yeah, I suck at cheerleading....)

    Who do we appreciate?
    Anny! Anny! Annnneeeee!

    (was that better? LOL!)

    I took Labor Day weekend off to watch movies and catch up on about 14 hours of DVR'd shows. I know how hard it can be to get back 'in the groove'.

  2. I think we all need time to stop, reflect, screw around some and then get back to work. We're humans and not robots. As for describing the book? You will when you have to

  3. If you're strong on the middle, you're smokin'. Go, girl.
