Let’s Catch Up!
Hi! I wanted to come to the porch to see you and to find out what you’ve been up to and to tell you what I’ve been busy with. I guess I’ll go first ;-)
I’ve been spending a lot of time at Terra Cotta Pendants (does that learning curve ever end? I don’t think so.) But mostly I have been having fun working on my second book. This one involves a fair bit of research so it’s taking a lot longer to write than The Happy Place did.
For the life of me, I don’t know how I wrote The Happy Place. It’s a blur, gone, like the memory of labour pain a woman forgets weeks after delivering, designed by nature to ensure she will have another child. Not that the writing of this book is painful; on the contrary, life is assisting me in magical ways. The problem (and, yes, the joy) is that things keep happening that demand to be included. I’m not sure how I’ll know when it’s finished, but I trust, when the time comes, I will.
At the same time I’ve been thinking a lot about my third book. Granted; I’ve been thinking about this book since August 1st of 2002 but lately ideas and inspirations are coming so frequently I started a document to capture them. The document is thirty-seven pages long. It’s nice to know there is a project waiting beyond the one I’m working on now.
Your turn. What’s new in your life? What have you been dreaming about, working on, struggling with? I know you’ve been busy too: It’s been a long time since we’ve had a good conversation here on the porch. Grab an iced tea or coffee and let’s catch up!
