Greetings Familiar Friends,
It is autumn and the leafs are falling and the nights have gone chilly. Fall & Winter is a great time to write. The cold brisk air, drinking hot coffee or cocoa, thoughts moving inward, staying inside more often. It is ideal writing time. Some people moan the loss of summer. I do not. My creative side wakes up. My characters demand time and attention. And summer will come back again. Life and its seasons revolve.
I am working on my novels and hoping that 2014 will be a better year for me as an author. I have hit a lot of bumps trying to get things done. Well, more than bumps. Monstrous giant obstructions barring my literary progress like that mysterious black monolith in 2001: A Space Odyssey.
But I will prevail. I will not give up or give in. Being Irish/Scottish, my stubborn streak is fully embedded in my DNA.
So I will write. That is all a writer can do. It is what we do. More later.
