Where does the time go?

It never ceases to amaze me how quickly time passes. It's been almost a month since my last posting, but I can use the excuse that I've been busy, can't I?

I've read and reviewed more than ten books since I last posted a comment, but that's always a pleasure, for I can never read enough.

My WIP is limping along and I really need the incentive to sit at the computer undisturbed and write, write, write. Fat chance for that!! But from the nagging of my wonderful friends, I'm able to eke out a little more here and there and maybe one of these days I'll finish this book and then I'll agonize about starting number three in the series.

If only I didn't have to spend so much time marketing and promoting, and doing all the other daily things that need to be done, I'd maybe get more accomplished, but all the other authors I know have to deal with this too, so it feels good to know I'm not alone!

Anyway, just wanted to pop in and leave a comment. It's the beginning of another weekend and though we're not going to another classic car show, we're going to visit our dear daughter and spend Saturday with her. Just hope the rain holds off and we have a nice day.

Next week we're looking forward to the Ronnie Milsap concert as I'm sure that will be totally delightful.

So, until we "meet" again, blessings to all!

Can't believe it's March already!

I can't believe that it's already March. Wherever does the time go? In two weeks I'll be commemorating the year anniversary of my dear mother's passing. How I miss that feisty, little old lady, but I know she's more than likely livening things up in Heaven and that all her relatives and friends who have gone before her have welcomed her with loving arms.

Meanwhile, I've been keeping busy reading and working on many reviews. I just received several wonderful children's books to review from the New York Journal of Books and I'm eager to delve into them. As for my own writing... I've just joined a wonderful critique group with three other Guardian Angel Publishing authors and thoroughly enjoying reading their submissions and having them give me constructive and much welcomed advice about my work. We make a wonderful team. Anyway, I think I have the first two chapters of "Tommy's Angel" polished and about ready to get on to the rest of the story.

Still getting some great feedback about "Tiny Angel" and the last time I checked, they only had one copy left in stock, so I'm thrilled about that.

As I sit here at my home office, glancing out the window at the still-brown grass and see by the thermometer the still-chilly temperatures, I anxiously await the spring and warmer weather. Usually by this time of year, my central NC area is warming up, but one can only hope now. I guess Mother Nature is confused as is evidenced by what is happening all over the world, and I hope she gets back to where she's supposed to be.

Time to quit my musings and get back to work, so I wish you all a wonderful day and lots of happiness.
