It’s a strange and powerful and peculiar beast, this thing called life.
I know, I know, I’m preachin’ to the choir to those out there trying to survive and thrive, lol. But it’s a mess of a thing to muddle through.
I really have no right to complain. It’s been an interesting week or so. I discovered that I received a 5-star review on the latest release, “THE CONCUBINE”. And that was lovely. It’s pretty hard to get reviews at all anymore with so many choices on the market.
And then someone made me aware of the fact that the USA Today’s HEA section had actually mentioned that same release in one of their articles. Naturally, I didn’t believe it for a second. My name? In USA Today? Ha! Not until I saw it with my own eyes would I believe it.
And this was a good thing, yes? It’s just the kind of thing an author might need for encouragement.
And yet, I haven’t written an original word in damn near a year now.
I’ve even brought out the big guns. A couple of books with writing prompts for every week, even each day. As exercises they seem to be helping me stretch a bit. And I’ve just started reading over the unfinished mss I stopped on, and find I’m surprised that I like them. Maybe that’ll help lead me in the right direction again.
Sure hope so. Because I’m definitely beginning to feel a little lost!
