Just another note, my blog has moved permanently to my website, but LJ is still listed in a lot of places as my blog so I periodically post links here for those who haven't updated the address.

Inspiration and Tools of the Trade

“We are all apprentices in a craft where no one ever becomes a master.”
--Ernest Hemingway

I'm starting to write a brand new book and I’m at that giddy stage, the in-love stage.  Everything is possible! The pages ahead of me are an endless open territory.  My characters will do great things!  Hideous things!  Gut-wrenching things!  There are no limits to what I can do with setting!  It will be a character in itself. And the plot?  It will weave into complicated rivulets that will test the limits of my character!  That’s what beginnings are, open territory where everything and anything is possible . . . more

Happy New Year?

Egad, I've had a long hiatus from my blog.  Last year was an insane year for me.  So much going on!  Here's the short list:

1.  My youngest daughter got married.  (Beautiful bride and wedding!)
2.  My first grandbaby was born. (I am smitten!)
3.  I had a new book published!  (The Fox Inheritance!)
4.  I wrote and had my first short story published! (Gargouille in Enthralled anthology!)
5.  I wrote and had my second short story published! (The Rotten Beast from Tor!)
6.  I went on a very long group book tour! (Pen Fatale tour!)
7.  And . . . ta-da! During all of this, somehow I wrote ANOTHER book! (The third and final of The Jenna Fox Chronicles)

It still makes my head spin.  I honestly don't know how I did it all, but I do know I was busy, and some things had to go by the wayside--like keeping up on my blog.  And the gym.  And cleaning. And . . .

So I'm hoping 2012 is a bit less hectic.  I am finishing up revisions of the book I mentioned in #7.  No title yet.  My editor and I are still working on it, tossing around possibilities.  It should be out this time next year.

And new stories ideas and characters have already come courting.  I keep pushing them away which is what I always do with stories, and then finally, I succumb to the ones that just won't stop wooing me. But right now I will keep them at bay until I finish these revisions.

(Are revisions ever really ever finished?  But that's another post.)
