“A Creed in Stone Creek” is finished, as of today, and I must say, as many obstacles as I had to surmount this time around, I wouldn’t change a thing. (Okay, maybe I could have lightened up on the creative angst a little!) But I’m a firm believer that, most of the time, things turned out exactly as they’re supposed to. As I’ve said before, saying good-bye to the characters in a book I’ve poured my heart and soul into (and that’s ALL of them) is a lot like sending a child away to college. There is joy and a sense of accomplishment, but there is also a bittersweet feeling of, “Now what?”
A new book, of course.
But for today, I’m resting on my laurels. (If having a dental appointment can be counted as a form of celebration.)
The weather is cool and overcast–perfect, after long weeks of unrelenting heat.
There’s a new episode of my favorite TV show, “That’s Clever”, waiting on my Tivo, to watch tonight. There used to be all kinds of arts and craft shows on HGTV and DIY, but for some reason, they’ve mostly gone away, replaced by bathroom crashers, yard crashers, flippers, etc. But good ole “That’s Clever” still runs every Tuesday morning, and a surprising number of the artists turn out to be living right here in Spokane.
Maybe I’ll be on that show someday. Or not. I’d have to clean up my studio, and that is a daunting prospect.
My wrist still aches, and won’t turn in some of the ways it did before (I WAS double-jointed), but it works, and that’s all I ask.
It’s all good.
Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you’ll come back again tomorrow.
I certainly plan on it.
