#1 NYT bestselling author Linda Lael Miller


Early Start

Bernicie and I have already been out for our morning walk–in fact, it’s early enough that the horses are still in the barn, waiting for the Canadian Wrangler to bring them room service.  :)  It’s very cold out here in Spokaloo, and the sky is gray, as it was yesterday.  Still, the quiet and the peace were lovely, and God and I had a great talk.  :)

Yesterday, on the afternoon round, all the hayburners were out in the pasture, and Banjo and Traveler, my boys, were showing off big time.  It takes my breath away, watching them run. 

The writing is going very, very well–I turned on my sunshine lamp and sat down at my computer and presto, I was in Parable, with Hutch and Kendra and Slade and Joslyn, sharing in their adventures.  I forgot all about the murky weather, I was so absorbed in the story. 

I just started reading Ken Keyes’ “Handbook to Higher Consciousness.”  Isn’t it strange how a book might as well be written in Greek if you’re not ready for it?  I’ve tried to read this classic many times in my life, but it just plain didn’t make sense, until now.

Off to the Randy Travis concert this Saturday night, over at Northern Quest Casino.  If you happen to see me there–I’ll be the one tapping both feet and grinning like a fool–come over and say howdy.  After Saturday, I’ll be clearly identifiable by my souvenir T-shirt.  :)

That’s the chat for today, my friends.  Thanks for riding the same trail–I do enjoy your company.

    Linda, have a great time with Randy! Tell him another of his Washington State fans loves him, enjoys his talent, and supports him every step of the way. Tap a foot for me, too! Hilda

    Do you use your sunshine light all day? Just wondering if you can use them all day or not.

    How do you choose the names for your characters?

    Hilda: Randy was fabulous. I didn't get a chance to talk to him, :), but if I ever do, I'll tell him hi from you!Denise: No, I just use the light while I'm writing. I'm not sure if you could use it all day–might want to do some research first.Sharon: The names of my characters are all-important to me. I have to find just the right one. I own a lot of baby name books and friends and family suggest names, too. My cousin Mary Ann has named most of the Creeds and McKettricks.
