The Fun of Writing
There are a lot of fun things about writing, but a couple in particular were on my mind over the past couple of days.
First, I had an August 1 deadline for a proposal for my second K-9 Ranch Rescue book for Harlequin Romantic Suspense. I met it, and I'm way into writing the first draft of that book, too. But it's always fun to meet a deadline.
Second, my younger son sent me a text message from a vacation he was on that included photos of a shelf in a bookstore in the city he was visiting. Why was that fun? Well, that photo had a bunch of my mystery books on it, starting with my first cozy SIT, STAY, SLAY from my Kendra Ballantyne, Pet-Sitter Mysteries, as well as my most recent Barkery & Biscuits Mystery BAD TO THE BONE, and several others from those and others of the series I've written. Yep, fun!
Are those the only reasons? Nope. I have fun with the whole writing process, at least a lot of the time. I do get frustrated at times, or worried, or--well, name the emotion and I've probably felt it. But I'm always (mostly) glad I'm a published author and that I'm continuing to write more.
Anyway, happy August, everyone! And if you can tell me why this year is going so fast, please do.
