I spotted this on someone’s Facebook timeline, and had to share–I am so grateful to my local libraries, and still remember the ‘whoosh’ of excitement when it was Library Day at my elementary school. I would borrow as many books as I could carry, even though one of the librarians told me I couldn’t possibly read that many books in one week.
I’m in Brooklyn without my son, who’s off having adventures–I’ve been working on A Hero’s Return, the next Loveswept book after Hero of My Heart, and am preparing to write the black moment–where he asks her to forsake what she is planning to do to be with him, and she says no–and that takes a lot of fortitude, so it’s taking me awhile as it builds in my brain.
But with the son gone, I hope to be able to get a lot more work done on this. Not to mention more date time with the husband, more outside time at night, and maybe more shoe shopping. And more reading? The worse thing about being a writer is that you suddenly don’t get to do enough reading–thankfully, I still commute to and fro work, and have waiting time in airports and such, so I still sneak as much as I can.
I’m currently reading Anne Bronte’s The Tenant of Wildfell Hall. What are you reading?
I’m between books at the moment, needing to write and not be distracted. But I just finished a Superromance, The Other Soldier by Kathy Altman, a daring and very satisfying romance about a soldier who comes to make amends to the widow of the man he killed by his friendly fire.
Enjoy the ease in responsibility of having one member of the household away. Doesn’t mean you don’t miss him and love him, I’ve learned over the years.
Enjoy the productive time and look forward to hugging your son when he gets back.
I’m currently reading Sky Sailors by David L. Bristow, a children’s book about the history of ballooning. I found it pretty much by accident but I’m glad I did, because it has a lot of details about period ballooning I haven’t found elsewhere!
Trying to concentrate on writing, but I finished Patricia Rice’s The Marquess not long ago and loved it. Great love story and memorable characters.
Sometimes a bit of alone time is just the thing and makes you appreciate the returning adventurer more when they come home!
