Current Reading: Stephen King’s-It (One of my favorite books, read it for the first time when I was 16. Readers, what was your first favorite, best loved adult read?)
So forgive the radio silence for the last little while, everyone. Life showed up and took a big old chunk out of yours truly. My daughter has hit a major change in her health. Not world ending, or life threatening but a new normal is how I am going to choose to put it. So, that has taken me off the creative grid for a while, put revisions on hold, and basically leaving me with the dire need to write or go nuts. So here we are.
I am not going into details because well, that’s just not how I manage life. The people that need to know do. So I have been thinking lately and came across a photo writing prompt that got the gears turning. At this time, the photo cannot be included in this blog due to copyright and I don’t feel like tracking down the photographer to get permission to use it. At any rate the gears got going because a the image was of a winding path and a tree set back from the road. Overhead was a beautiful storm cloud either rolling in or rolling out. It felt like either the calm right before or the calm right after the storm. I feel like I am in the calm after and things are starting to still. To quote Alexandra, “Light knows I’ve been wrong before.” We’ll see where the path leads. Some times, it just comes down to weathering the storm.
So the image and the song got me going but before I get to the more creative endeavors, I have a small announcement to make. On April 29th, our friends at Gathering Volumes will be hosting a massive event for Independent Book Store Day celebration featuring a whole slew of local authors from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. I will be on hand with my handsome assistant (read: husband) signing and selling books. There will also be a gift basket available for a drawing. The latter I’m still putting together. When I figure out what is in said gift basket, I will let you all know. Also, cupcakes. Because well, cupcakes are awesome.
At any rate, if you’re in the Ohio/Michigan area and fancy a road trip, go check out the Facebook event. That will list times and what other events will be on hand. It promises to be a fantastic time.
With that being said, I know some of you are probably waiting on the next installment with Alex and Marc. It’s coming. I have a character that is demanding to be developed. But not tonight because well this little writer feels bedtime calling. To you faithful readers, leave me a little comment below of what you think about the story arc if you’re following along. Take care!
