Today has been busy and productive. I like those kind of days. I feel like I’m getting a lot accomplished, things seem to be heading in the right direction, and I’m pretty excited about a few new opportunities coming my way. I got the new manuscript to my editor and I’ve gotten several new lovely reviews on Amazon. I also bought some sunflower seeds. I haven’t planted anything since I was about eight, so I want to give it another try. And I just love sunflowers.
I’ve also started researching my next book. I’m pretty excited about it. I’m tempted to start working on two new ones, but I know that eventually I’ll have to pick one over the other. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see! It feels strange not to be writing every day, so I want to get back to it as soon as possible!
The reason it’s been a bad day, however, is pretty lousy. My very oldest friend (seriously, we’ve been friends since we were three) lives in Lubbock and is married to an absolutely wonderful man who, unfortunately, has had his fair share of health problems. He is back in the hospital, and while I don’t know details, I know that they’re both having a really rough time and it kills me that I can’t be there for her. It’s weighing pretty heavy on my mind right now, so again, this will be a short post.
I hope everyone is having a wonderful day!
I really hope things turn out well for your friends.
Vincent van Gogh is my favorite artist (I had a lot of feels when they did the Doctor Who episode with him) and the painting with sunflowers is easily one of my favorites. It’s indicative of really great technique, but sunflowers themselves are just so beautiful and hard to capture. It’s kind of rare to see them in Michigan. My high school had a garden and I used to like to take care of it in my free time when class got boring (I was one of those brainy kids that got bored because everything was easy). We had sunflowers there for a while.
What’s your next book going to be about?
Van Gogh is great! That’s the only Doctor Who episode I’ve seen and I loved it!
And classified. 😛
