First, let me say— HAPPY CANADA DAY
I’m so excited to be able to blog today. Minor technical difficulties kept me off the computer and net last week. Withdrawal was not pretty. Anywho… since I was in a state of forced non-writing (I can’t write longhand for extended periods, nor can I decipher my chicken scribble when my wrists really start straining) and instituted back into domestic Goddess status—something I happily abandoned when I started writing—I did still manage to accomplish something for my writing… I did a lot of thinking on Jinan and a new book I’ll be working on as soon as I get some editing done on the last Lupiscoeur (Nick and Jocey’s story).
This thinking has been very good and refreshing since I hadn’t written a lot in the last month. And I’m happy to report I’m back on track and with a title to boot. No more of that surreal somnambulist feeling because I can’t get the characters out of my head and on paper—those crazy cats tend to keep me up at night. J
Hidden Beauty is the new working title, which I got from a lithograph, and I’ll share that later this week… I’ll probably keep referring to it as Jinan though.
So what would you do if suddenly your computer went kaputz? I washed my floors, shaved down the dog (Berners hate the heat let’s pretend I was doing him a favour, though he kept getting antsy when the shaver got close to his danglin’ bits), I watched some movies I’d been dying to see… Would have preferred to surf the net and tinker with my stories, but I’m back!
