Back Without Bells

Just so you know: I haven’t been too busy to blog because I’ve been writing or sulking.  I’ve been sick.  Nothing life threatening, but lousy enough to keep me from here.  I’m still not 100% (have I ever been?) but better.

I don’t have a lot to say.  Except, once again, I think I have an idea.  Right before I got sick I sent for some books I need for research.  Haven’t been able to read them yet. I’ve been reading bubble gum books.

So this idea.  I’ve had it for quite awhile but I’ve never been sure how to do it.  Now I think I do. Before I got sick my plan was to start writing today.  I’m going to put that off until after the 1st of the year.  I feel eager to start.

I’m hoping between now and then I’ll come up with a title as I prefer to start a book with one.  I’m also hoping this isn’t another false start.  If it is I will sulk.

I hope to have some things to say here before I start writing.  Mainly I want to be well enough to get to that book launch in NYC on Dec. 6th.  So cross your fingers for me.

Sorry you've been sick, Sandra. I missed you. Hope you come up with a title and that your idea grows stronger.

And have a good Christmas.

Boy, I never have a good title first thing because I never know exactly what my point is at the start. I just know I have this character with a problem needing a solution.

I've got fingers and toes crossed!

P.S. I've got to have a title when I start also. Even though it sometimes changes later.

Nice to have you back and fingers crossed for a great book launch and a sturdy idea that grows in the year ahead.
