So It's November



I've been in a writing funk for a while. Mostly this is because I've had a lot of things to take care of on my end. I'm finally gaining the Muse back and I know it never really left. It's always there. It's quiet voice whispers an idea as I drive past the brown and orange trees or as I pass an old, curious building with endless possibilites. I love those moments. I just need to continue to "feed" the Muse and let it do its job. The relationship between an Author (or any creator) and its Muse is like any other relationship. If you ignore or neglect the relationship, it will fade.

November is here and I know I'm not ready to plunge into NANOWRIMO (National Novel Writing Month) , but I am grabbing the spirit of it. I am using this time to nurture the writer in me again. I have set alterative goals for me to reach this time. They are just basic writer things that I used to to all the time. Some goals I have are to blog more, write down those ideas that come to me, explore one of those ideas, and add more to that novel I am working on.

So what about you? What are your goals this November?

Happy Halloween

Another Halloween has come and gone. With that the rest of the holidays are upon us. Every year around this time I am reminded of a creation my artistic husband did for me. A few years back I asked him to carve a jack-o-lantern to resemble Corky, a character from my book Teresa's Shadow.  The process was long, but this is what he came up with.


Once it was complete, we decided to light it up.  



This definitely resembles the "glassy yellow eyes" Teresa saw in the story. 

Hope you all had an awesome Halloween!
