Go slow sometimes

I've been running around like a rat in a wheel lately.  I have not been enjoying it really.  I launched book one in the Cold Springs series.

Yeah, as if you guys aren't sick of seeing this cover enough!  By the way, thank you so so so! much to everyone who picked up a copy of Second Chance.  It means the world to me, and I love you guys!

Anyway, ask any writer and I'm sure they will tell you a book launch is exhausting.  Couple that with a day job, having back problems, and man...I'm tired.  Plus we went to Lake George, my favorite place in the entire world.  And yes, I did come back with a new book idea for a historical with a Native American hero.  Yay!  I need to sit down and start writing it but I'm currently working on edits for book II in the Cold Springs series and plotting out book III.  So I'm a little delayed.

But I want to talk about being busy and sometimes not being busy.  Our society preaches that it's good to be so busy, so busy we're frazzled.  So busy we can't take time out to sit and pet our animals or talk to our kids or spouses or parents.  Why?  What's the harm in taking life slow?  That's what I'm doing this weekend.  I'm taking life slow and reading, catching up on some new books I got and just relaxing. 

How about you?

Stress? What stress???

My laptop died.  I knew it was getting close. Thank God for backup save or I would have completely lost book two of the Cold Springs series which I hope to get to my editor this week.

Here's a meme that just about describes my week so far:

LIfe? What's up?

Life...ah when life gets in the way of writing.  So far since August it has been:

  • Getting stung repeatedly with hornets
  • Going to Urgent Care from said hornet sting reaction
  • Having strep throat 
  • Going back to Urgent Care and getting on meds for strep throat.  Doctor asks me if I've been around anyone who's been sick.  I say, "I was just here two days ago from hornet reaction.  I probably caught something here."  He laughs in a strange, tense way....not sure what that means.
 But good news:  I got all these books at a town wide garage sale yesterday!  Yes, this is the trunk of my car brimming with books.
