Spring has finally come to Pennsylvania, grass is green, trees are showing a tint of color as the buds start to break out of branches and all the bright spring flowers are bursting through the cold dark ground. And we haven’t even had any snow flurries for the last five or six days!
Spring gives us hope. I have been busy working on several tasks that needed to be accomplished to move ahead with my writing. I have nearly completed these goals and early readers are giving me feedback on book number three, ”It Happened on Willow Lane.”
The poet Ovid wrote, “My hopes are not always realized but I always hope.” As you may have heard…writng is a tough life but a life all writers have chosen, otherwise we wouldn’t be writing. I am lucky to have an optimistic nature because believe me, a writer needs it!
I have read profiles of inspiring interviews with authors Emma Donoghue and Harlan Coben. I hope these wonderful writers realize how their stories and comments encourage those of us who have not come close to their levels of success and probably never will. But since we have stories to tell, we keep writing. And that is the gist of being a writer, we can’t just talk about it, we have to actually write.
So, till next time and I promise it will be sooner rather than later.
