A-camping We Will Go

Can hardly wait. We'll be off to the Sierras on Saturday for a week of camping and hiking and chatting with friends around the nightly campfire. This is one week in the year where I truly relax. There's something about the trees and the silence and the majestic mountains that speaks to me in a way nothing else does. Thank you, God, for this gift of nature and for the opportunity to enjoy it.

Fiction Fun

I'm taking a course in writing the romantic comedy novel and it is such fun! I thought I would never write fiction. I was a confirmed article and nonfiction book writer–but no more. I'm going to push on and complete a work of fiction. The ideas are coming so fast, I'm dizzy. I woke up in the night listening in on a conversation between the hero and heroine. I laughed out loud. These people are real to me! After 30 years in the writing profession, it feels great to have a new goal and to be excited about achieving it.
