Well, actually, I didn’t miss Tuesday–I was here for it, like everybody else, but I didn’t get to blog because I was having internet problems all day long.
Don’t get me started.
What’s on the docket for today? Writing, of course.
Maybe some cooking, if I feel especially ambitious. (The jury is still out on that one.)
I’m enjoying all your comments–keep them coming. As promised, we’ll be announcing our 2 weekly winners on Friday, and then there will be another contest, so if you don’t win, hang in there.
I get a lot of questions about Mojo and, in fact, my publishers are planning to re-release the first two in the relatively near future. I would LOVE to write a third story, but I’m not sure how I would find the time. My cowboys and their ladies keep me pretty busy, as you know. So stay tuned–if there’s Mojo news, you’ll hear it here first.
I haven’t been reading much in the past few days, but I listened to an old stand-by, “The Hiding Place”, by Corrie ten Boom. I think it’s good to read this classic periodically, along with “The Diary of Anne Frank”, just so we don’t forget how tyranny takes root. As my friend Debbie Macomber says, evil doesn’t go from A to B to C so you can track it easily. It goes from W to D or whichever direction serves its dreadful purposes, and it’s usually subtle, at least in the beginning. Snide remarks and racial or religious slurs turn into holocausts eventually, and everyone wonders what happened. These stories of real human beings remind me to focus not on our differences, but on the many things we have in common. No matter our religion or the color of our skin, we are all children of God.
Now, a word from Jenni, who has something to insert here.
Hi everyone! Be sure to visit Harlequin’s blog today as they are discussing how they come up with those amazing covers for Linda’s books.
