Coffee…Writing…More Coffee

6966818869_b6d7e9fb3c

Good morning! Are any of you having a hard time getting awake this morning? I’m struggling after the three day weekend. It was a great holiday, but my body and mind seem to still be on vacation.

Oh well, this will be a pot of coffee morning…. I’m working on getting my word count in this morning. I finished Highlander’s Son last week and hope to finish Lacey’s Choice this week. Both of these books have been in the works for a couple of months, so I’m trying my best to get caught back up. Tax season really slammed me this year and it affected my writing like no other year has.

It doesn’t help that my two new series ‘Sky Ridge’ and ‘Wishful Harbor’ are knocking on my mind, wanting to stay inside. Every time I push them back for a day or so, they jump back in with full force and win. But this week, I plan to finish a couple of in-process manuscripts before I go back to the newest ones. Let’s just hope I do.

So, what are you working on this week?

As always, good writing and May God Bless You…

Proud mama!

It’s Graduation Day! As I sit here, sipping my coffee, I can’t believe that I have a son ready to graduate from high school. Where have the years gone? The memories flood in and the tears slowly roll down my cheek, but I’m so happy for him. He’s about to embark on a whole new chapter in his life. It’s scary for all of us, but I know he’s got what it takes to be all he wants to be.

So, to all of those graduating today, good luck and May God Bless all of your endeavors!

As always, good writing and May God Bless You…

Monday Morning…Not Ready Yet!

Good morning… Wow, 6:15 came early this morning. I had a busy weekend and that makes for a groggy Monday morning. But, I still plan on getting in at least 2000 words before I go to my day job.

I worked on three of my manuscripts yesterday, getting ahead on one that I’d been stumped on. Thankfully I rounded the corner and the story opened up in my mind. So, Highlander’s Son will be out soon. Of course, it is a novella to finish out the series, but for those that have been asking, yes, it’s coming before the end of May!

As for my other works in progress, they’re coming soon also. Lacey’s Choice is coming along great,  and Promises Forgotten is totally outlined and ready to get going. As for the others in process, I’ve put them on the back burner until these three are completed and in my editor’s hands.

So, what are you working on this morning?

As always, good writing and May God Bless You…

Monday’s coffee & writing…

Oh my, it’s Monday already! How did the weekend go by so fast?

So, this morning I’m hoping to be back on schedule with my daily writing. Of course, that was supposed to be last Monday, but life happened and that didn’t happen. I have itchy fingers and characters stomping their feet in my head, so… Writers got to write!

Two thousand words, here I come…

Friday Writing…

Good morning! It’s Friday and I’ve got a smile on my face. Do you?

I’m working on several manuscripts at the moment and sometimes they become a blur. They like to intermingle and try to confuse me, but then other times, they come together to make something incredible. Not that my writing is incredible, but the way words come together to form stories that take people away from their problems, away from their world for just a moment, it’s simply amazing.

As for my current works, here’s a little snippet from Lacey’s Choice:

Drake stood holding Lacey’s hand, his shaking a bit as she looked up at him with tears in her eyes. “Lacey will you marry me? I know it’s only been a couple of weeks, but when you know in your heart that the woman standing in front of you is your soul mate, then it’s time to make a move before she goes back to America without you.”
Lacey took a deep breath, unsure if her words would come out. She’d thought he was going to tell her he loved her, not propose. Then as she looked up into those blue eyes, the color of the Swiss sky on a cloudless day, she knew beyond a shadow of a doubt, he was the one.
Nodding her head, she smiled up at him. “Yes, I’ll marry you Drake.”
He engulfed her in his arms, pulling her close to him as he kissed her in front of the windows as the snow fell outside. The only sound was the soft music that surrounded them and the crackling fire. Then he pulled back with a look of concern.
“I don’t have a ring for you. It’s not like I knew I’d be proposing today.” He looked a little embarrassed.
“Drake, all I need is you, not a ring or anything else, just you.” Lacey reached up and kissed him again, but this time she let him know how much he meant to her.
Then her cell rang, pulling her out of the moment. She looked down at the screen and made a bad face as she saw the name, Brent. Drake saw the name too and her frown. He knew she loved him, but she’d also loved the man on the other end of that line. She’d been prepared to marry Brent and when she’d came here to Switzerland, her heart was broken. Could he possibly lose her?

Friday’s Second Cup…

Good Friday morning! We’re finally almost to the weekend. My short vacation is almost over, but that’s alright since tax season is over with, I’ll have a little more time to relax. For now, I’m sipping my second cup of coffee, baking blueberry muffins and looking forward to my third cup of coffee…15357511258_cbf39f66bb

So, now that I’m back to a regular writing schedule, I’m back on my works in progress. I have four books in the works, two almost complete. Now to get back into the groove and push those words out.

It’s amazing when you take a short break from writing, the words still come in. My mind swirled with words constantly. It was hard not to sit down at my laptop and put them into my manuscripts, but time wasn’t there to do this.  Of course, as a writer, this was a difficult time. Especially with my characters screaming at me on a daily basis. But the characters have calmed some since I’m back to writing.

So, what is everyone working on? Me, I’m working on Lacey’s Choice, Highlander’s Son, Georgia and a new series, which I’ll let you in on a little later.

As always, good writing and May God Bless You…

Monday, Coffee and a book…

15357511258_cbf39f66bb

Good Monday morning! I don’t know about all of you, but I could’ve used one more day in the weekend. Funny thing, I had planned to get some work done in the office and write at least 5000 words over the weekend. Did I meet my goal? Well, I got some work done, but not the word count. My weekend word count was pitiful…

For some reason, my writer-brain was on vacation this weekend. But as I went about cleaning house, working on tax returns and going about the business of life, my mind was on my current manuscript. I went over scenes in my head, but couldn’t make myself sit down at my laptop and write it down. Why? I have no clue. I wouldn’t call it writer’s block. Actually, I don’t know what to call it, but I hear a lot of other writers complain of this.

So, as I write this post, I’m preparing for my writing binge this morning before I go to the office. I’m working on my second cup of coffee and then I’ll grab a third just to make sure my brain is awake and what I write will make sense.

As always, good writing and May God Bless You…

P.S.: Don’t forget to grab a copy of ‘Promises Made’. It’s up and running… https://www.amazon.com/Promises-Made-Sky-Ridge-Book-ebook/dp/B06W9LDLV7 You’ll fall in love with Nash and Joy!
