Welcome to my new WordPress Blog/Web site! I am very excited to start this new adventure. With this new site, I hope to be able to keep in better touch with fans and fellow writers. It will be easier for me to post instant updates on the status of my books on this site, give some insight into the creative process, and perhaps a window into the writing life itself.
I have to admit, I came into this whole blog thing with a bit of hesitation. All the instant info available in cyberspace now is almost debilitating. I like writing. I like writing novels. I like sitting at my desk, at the computer, by myself, uninterrupted as I plug away at a scene or two. But, I’m not truly by myself, and I’m not really sitting at the computer–I’m in a world with characters who are busy living interesting and hopefully exciting lives in settings which are sometimes idylic, sometimes frightening as the storyline requires. When the writing is going well, sometimes the husband will come home and I look up and realize it is 6pm already and I’ve written the entire day away. Okay, it doesn’t happen that often, but sometimes…
Anyway, that’s the writing I like. The idea of writing a blog, however, is a little daunting. What in the world would I have to say that would interest people–and how much energy do I want to devote to it when I really need to be working on the books? Or worse yet, what if I find I like it, and end up spending too much time on it?:)
But, alas, I have decided I need to get myself out there in the world of cyberspace–so, I am embracing this opportunity to reach out to those who may actually be interested in what I have to say. I will attempt to write about things that interest me, items I read in the paper, the writing life, and I think a special blog on Morning Thoughts. I will probably post once or twice a week. We’ll see how it goes. At some point, I may have a guest blogger or two. If anyone has a question for me about my books, or the writing life, please post it and I will try to answer it.
So for now, thanks to all of you who have popped in to check out the blog; and to all the readers, happy reading. To the writers, happy writing!
