Last night I dreamed….

But not of Manderley.

I dreamed I was moving to Florida with my ex-husband–and we’d be crossing the country on his motorcyle, no less.  He wanted me to leave my dog and cats behind–and to be fair, Rick is a mellow guy these days, and an animal lover to boot.  (We’ve been divorced since 1987 and he’s married to a wonderful woman named Kathy.)  Bottomline, he’d never expect me or anyone else to abandon a beloved pet.  Needless to say, my dream self refused.

Boy, was I glad to wake up–even if it WAS four o’clock in the morning! 

Excellent writing day today–have I mentioned that I’m already madly in love with “The Marriage Pact”?  :)  I was up at 4 today, as usual on a writing day, and I went to my office immediately.  Even so, I was still writing at 2:30 this afternoon.  I just don’t seem to do things as fast as I used to, when I was younger.  But I like to think I’m more thorough now, doing a better job.  I am VERY conscious of my readers, of giving all of you the story you’re hoping for.

My quilting adventure continues, along with the renovations on the house.  :)  Things are never dull around here, I promise you.

Sometimes, the prospect of a little dullness seems to have its merits, but the truth is, like many right-brained people, I thrive on chaos.  I NEED change, need to think on my feet and improvise.  It’s just the way I am.

Go figure.

    Oh dear God, Florida would be a long ride on a motorcycle. I would have loaned you my gear though. 8)

    Wow Linda that was some dream !!!! I wonder what it means. Maybe the new series is giving some strange thoughts. I can’t wait to see what kind of story they are and the people in them. Life is so exciting and all we can do is go for it.

    The brain might thrive on chaos but we recharge our batteries on dullness! (In a manner of speaking) Glad you had a good day at the desk! Dreams mean many things not even going there! Love you read your daily post! Thanks again Tinna

    Wow, what a dream!!! I’m glad I never remember what I dream about. Sounds like you’ve had a really good day, I’m glad.
    Can I ask you and your followers to say a special prayer for my 43 yr old daughter, Lisa. She’s had lots of health problems and just had a polyp removed from her colon that was pre-cancerous having a follow up test in the morning? Thanks.
    Blessings to all.

    I get up very early too. Interesting dream. I always wonder what they mean.

    So glad you are in love with your new book. As I have said before, I love your books. I love ranches, cowboys, country music etc.

    Have a great week-end………………..

    I had a weird dream yesterday…I dreamt that my mom told me to ask my dad a question, so I said “Daddy, are you gay?” and he nodded his head and said, “yes”…Where did that come from? Where do dreams come from? I must have read something on the internet that put something in my head to dream such a strange dream. My dad isn’t gay and I don’t even think he would know what it meant! LOL The things our brains come up with.

    Linda…how do you choose your characters’ names? I’ve always wanted to know. What makes you pick a specific name for your characters?

    I’m listening to The Bridegroom right now. Although I’ve already read the book, I’m enjoying the CDs.

    I am so looking forward to your new books. I have to admit that when I am in a second hand store I buy up all your books that I have not read. And then I give them back to be resold again. This way it gets paid forward. I just love the way you bring all your characters to life. Thank you for being there for me. :wink:

    Hey, Linda, that sounds like a book to me ! I am so glad you are writing ’cause I love to read your books. You are such a great author, I am a little jealous. I always wanted to be an author, just didn’t have the talent. The next best thing is to read your books. Keep at it !

    Any book you write will be my favorite. When I’m feeling down or need to escape, or just plain want to curl up with a good book, I always reach for yours. I can’t tell you how many books I have collected of yours over the last two years when I first discovered you, but I sure have built up a collection. Keep writing away!
