Time for an update

Because I just realized there hasn’t been one in a while. =) Grown-up life has a way of catching up to me. Yesterday I got my first ever royalties check and almost threw it in the trash because I thought it was spam. Yep, brilliant, I know. But I am so excited about it! I honestly didn’t expect one this soon. I can’t believe I’m officially a paid author. Well, okay, that’s a lie. I can believe it and I’m grinning from ear to ear writing this.

I’ve been lacking in inspiration lately so I thought it was time to pick up a new book. On the menu this morning was Lord of the Fading Lands by C.L. Wilson. I started reading and almost forgot to get off the bus at my stop! It promises to be a great read and I can’t wait to get back to it. Maybe it will kick my muse into gear again – I think I’m having writing withdrawals. And it gets worse when a simple edit takes me a month to do.

It’s finally fall. The heat wave is over and it’s raining today. Time to break out the heavier jacket. Perfect time to curl up with a cup of hot chocolate and a good book and just get lost in fantasy for a day or ten. One of these days I will have a cozy little nook of a library with a crackling fireplace and a fluffy chaise and lap blanket. There will be cookies in a jar close at hand and music playing from the speakers, no phones, no annoying people gabbing in my ear; nothing but me and the story.

One of these days.

    Hearing from other readers and writers and receiving royalty checks (no matter how thin those checks may seem at the time) make writing worth it! When you get a cheery note from a reader or a royalty check, you know that you are on the right track!
