Once again, on my favorite holiday of the year, I’m away from my normal residence in wine country and writing in a teeny tiny condo near San Francisco. Thank goodness I have the luxury of a second home (albeit a postage stamp), while many of the evacuees in Northern California are living in shelters and hotels. My thoughts are with them this windy, smoky week in October. May the Kincaid Fire be contained soon! (Or maybe get snowed out.) With all the climate change, it’s difficult to predict what’s going to happen next.
Many of you have reached out to ask if I am safe. So far, yes. Thank you one and all for caring.
Sometimes we forget what’s going on while we launch a book. That’s why I’m writing this post. To remind myself in a few years why I lost so much writing time in 2019 and why writing can be such a challenge. Because of life (and selling a house and fires and no power), that’s why! I look back and am shocked to see it’s been five years since I published a work of fiction. Five years…
Some of you know why that is. Grief has a way of shackling the writing muse. But I am happy to report that those shackles have rusted and fallen away. Finally. I am back now, writing a new series, The Londo Chronicles, and producing audiobooks. I’ve taken a deep breath and am ready to step back into my writing career with renewed energy.
Writing is my spark. It’s my star. It has gotten me through so much in life and taken me places I never dreamed I would see. I’m so looking forward to November and NaNoWriMo, when I will start a brand new book, “I Could Disappear.” Only a few more days.
But first, a synopsis. Oh, yes, the EASY part. 🙂
