“Being a writer is a very peculiar sort of job; it’s always you versus a blank sheet of paper (or a blank screen) and quite often the blank piece of paper wins.” ~NEIL GAIMAN
The blank piece of paper is winning in my world. Can you believe it’s already half-way through March? We have not had any moisture in the Texas Panhandle this winter, so fire is on everyone’s mind. It is true that you can see for miles, and that means the sight of smoke rising on the horizon is a scary thing. We’re hoping for spring rains to begin soo.
I have so many projects half way done, with none finished, and that many more ideas swirling in my head waiting to come alive on the page. If we the ideas overwhelm us, we’d never get anything written. I’ve learned to focus on the task at hand and push the other projects out of my head. Sometimes I have to add notes to an existing stack or add a new page to the idea journal. It’s the only way to stay sane.
First things first, I’m down to the last chapters of edits for the Route 66 anthology that the Wordsmith Six group is doing. You are going to love this collection of stories, all with a common setting of the U-Drop Inn in Shamrock, Texas. I’m also editing a collection of animal stories for a friend who has also worked as a veterinarian of 30 years. His stories are so much fun. It hardly seems like work. Coming soon are two more books in the Rescue Animals series about rescue horses. These are in easy reader format for emerging readers eBook and print.
Hope you have a production week,
