Finally, the stars have aligned.
Okay, maybe that’s a little melodramatic, but it feels that way all of a sudden. A few things have gone very right in my day job, my husband is helping more around the house without me asking, and my daughter’s teenage mood swings have mellowed… Nope, it doesn’t take much to make me happy.
But the fallout from good things happening in my life? I write.
I have struggled all year to sit my butt in the chair and type a few lines a day. In the spring, I got started on an anthology of 4 short stories – each published on its own merit – and then Kate and I decided it was time to finally finish our Seasons anthology. Until about a week ago, I was struggling to write anything. Yes, I got the stories written under my self-imposed deadlines, but I didn’t “feel” it.
And then magic happened.
I’m much busier in my day job, but it’s a good busy, and I find when I have to find time to write, I’m more likely to than when I have hours ahead of me to do it and my brain is blank. I’m halfway through the last in the anthology with Kate, and we’ve already started talking about the next one.
My new books are starting to come out on Amazon – the first in well over a year – and I’m loving life right now.
I hope your days are filled with good things!
