Seasons Change, Do we?

small_5163387356

Here in Georgia the temps have begun to dip at night making it possible to open our windows at night. I love this time of year for many reasons and not so much for other reasons. The leaves are starting to change and the sun sinks low earlier.

For me Autumn is beautiful and exciting. It means Christmas is right around the corner, YIKES! It’s time to bring out the sweaters. It won’t be long before we start having fires in the fireplace, which gets me all mushy thinking about hot chocolate and really good books. I love to curl up in front of the fire with a good book or better yet with my laptop working on my latest manuscript. Some days when the air is crisp I’ll walk out to the front porch swing with a thick sweater and hot chocolate to write.

Oh and don’t forget the pumpkin spice flavored everything. My coffee in the morning is filled with pumpkin spice creamer and visions of pumpkin spice doughnuts dance in my head. It’s best they stay in my head and not on my hips. Although I have ventured there some already.

But there’s always a down side to the changing of the seasons, my allergies. Yep, I’ve been a little out of sorts for a couple of days and yesterday it hit. Woke up last night to puffy cheeks and intense pressure. Sleep wouldn’t come so I walked into the den and sat reading a great book for a couple of hours. But it happens every year so I’ll medicate myself and drink plenty of warm drinks to help with the stuffy head.

The biggest problem is I want to write, but pounding heads and writing don’t mix, unfortunately. I’ll have to do some heavy writing when this spell is over with, but that’s what we writers do best. We marathon write as deadlines loom over our heads. Sometimes my best writing is when I’m pushed in a corner and time is running out.

But for now I’ll leave you with something to think about. My new series “5 Oaks Ranch” is coming soon. It will start with Ridge, the oldest sibling.

A little sidetracked…

Good Monday morning! I’ve been a little under the weather with allergies and sinus, so that’s the cause of my few posts in the last week. It’s crazy how off kilter it can make you. My writing has suffered along with everything else.

Do you ever get sidetracked? Is it hard for you to get your focus back? For me it’s been difficult. I felt a little better last night, but just couldn’t stay focused. I guess the stuffy nose and slight headache made my brain way too fuzzy to concentrate.

Of course sometimes we do need to just put things aside and wait for our head to clear. I guess if I had written anything in the last couple of days it would have been strange. What I mean is it would not have made a lot of sense. With my fuzzy head my thinking process was slower than normal. Hopefully I’m on the road to recovery. I definitely have to get back on track and make up for the lost writing time.

As always, good writing and May God Bless you…
