I woke up this morning to eight inches of the white stuff. I’m not complaining, we’re long overdue and the otherwise blah brown countryside has been turned into a beautiful fairyland. The world outside my window looked pure and refreshed, setting my imagination racing off in new directions. I sat at my computer, my head full of changes and additions to the manuscript in its final stages of revisions. These sudden bursts of inspiration are wonderful when creating a story, but they don’t help when trying to meet deadlines. Mixed in with all this creativity were ideas of ways to reach my New Years resolution of getting my life organized. Yeah, right! I’m about as much on track with that as the swirling wind sending plumes of snow racing across the lawn.
I need to keep focused on my immediate goal of having In The Shadow Of The Lighthouse ready for print copies by the end of February. I know there are a lot of you out there who are waiting for a book you can actually hold in your hand. I’ll let you know as soon as I have the release date.
