(Note: I wrote this blog early this morning, but I’m having trouble getting it to post to the website. Who knows what time it will show up?)
I was one busy cowgirl this weekend. Two chapters written and glitter everywhere!
For those of you tuning in after an absence, that must be a really confusing statement.
As most of you know, I’m finishing up TYLER, the third book in my Montana Creeds series, and even though I’m tired, I’m exhilerated, too. There’s nothing like spending time with the Creeds (or the McKettricks, or the Yarbros, or the O’Ballivans!) to liven things up. Yes, I’m the writer of these books, but I’m also the very first reader, and often the twists and turns in the story take me by surprise. In between scenes, I usually take an art break and play with my ATCs and collages. Having just discovered Martha Stewart’s line of sparkly stuff, I’m on a real glitter tear.
Not surprising, I suppose. I always did love things that shine, and not just diamonds, either–I’m just fine with rhinestones and sequins, too. A country sky, splattered with stars, that’s a good one. The moon dancing on the lake out at the other place. And the warm glow in Sadie’s beagle-brown eyes–even better.
Oh, yeah. Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine!
Since the dogs and I slept in this morning–little wonder considering the hours we’ve been keeping–I haven’t journaled yet, or even made coffee. Sadie and Bernice are still dozing, but they’ll want to go out soon. So I’d better wrap this up and get on with the day.
I wanted to say howdy to all of you. I miss you when you’re not around.
Chapter 18 is waiting to happen. I figured out the next step for an ATC I’m working on–(you guessed it, it sparkles!) Bernice is up and ready for a run in the yard, so I’m out of here.
And do I ever need coffee.
