Did you miss me? Yeah, that's what I thought!

It seems like it's been ages since I wrote a blog post but technically it's been less than a week.
My last post was the blog hop and I did get some new followers -- Hello to all of you -- and I shared a great story about my husband's first gift to me.
It was fun to write, even if he didn't think it was appropriate to post things about him on the internet.
So, lesson to me, ask husband before you blog about him.

After I posted my last blog I was away for a few days and then I had some stuff to do at my son's school.

Needless to say I spent most of this morning finally reading all the blog hop entries and leaving comments.


There were quite a few and they were all interesting to read. Check out the list in the last blog if you are interested.

Back to my trip...I always think better driving in the truck. I especially like to drive by myself for long distances so I can let my thoughts meander along with the road. I've written many a scene that way.
Although I wasn't driving on the way down to our destination I did have lots of time to think and I may have worked out some of my story issues. 
What story you ask? The story that hasn't seen the light of day in about a month. That story. I was having serious doubts about fixing the plot problems in this one but I may have figured it all out thanks to the truck!

When will I get back to the story? 
Well, your guess is as good as mine.

I may have also come up with another story idea.
I attended a college football game at a small university on Saturday night.
I was sitting next to this complete stranger on the cold metal bleachers. Sometimes when you sit next to someone you try not to bump into each other, you try to keep your parts to yourself. Due to the cold temperatures, it didn't really seem to be an issue. Everyone in our section was kind of huddled together for shared warmth.
I just kept thinking how interesting it would be to meet a guy this way. Maybe rival teams too. Maybe they were set up by a mutual friend with two tickets. I will have to work on it a bit. I don't have time to write about it now but if I don't write down some ideas I will be asking you guys what I meant in six months.

No word from Carina Press as of this date. Not sure how long it will be before I hear from them.

If I don't get the chance to blog again this week then please have a happy and safe Thanksgiving Day.


  1. Happy thanksgiving and I will advise to just write your outlines in a book or your computer, it seems you are getting more ideas than you can write which is a good thing.

  2. You too, Heather! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  3. Joanna - If your advice is to keep my ideas private it's appreciated. I wasn't going to share any more than that. Happy Thanksgiving.

    Liz - Thank you. You too!
