Snow! And stuff...


So I've been MIA lately but I'm back. Well, sort of. In the past few weeks I've had a new release, NO DRESS REQUIRED (my first sexy contemp romance!) and been working on edits and writing new words...AND AND AND. But that juggling act is something we all know about. There are always a million demands on our time.

One thing that always makes me slow down whether or not I want to is snow. Where I live in upstate NY we don't just get a little dusting. We measure snow in feet. Last year we got 180 inches during the course of our winter. This year so far, we've gotten, maybe 15...and that includes today's snowfall. For the first time this winter I woke up to snow covered roads, which meant creeping along in my little sedan at 20 miles per hour. No matter how much I love to drive fast - and think fast and eat fast and on and on - snow definitely makes me slow down and focus on what I'm doing. And that's not a bad thing.

What have you been slowing down to focus on lately? And...do you like snow? Ask me my true feelings on that topic in a few days as I've been spoiled so far this winter!

Back next week with a longer, possibly more coherent post!

We haven't had any snow here in Massachusetts yet this year. Unless you count the other morning, when we woke up to a coating that had melted by the time the sun had been up an hour.

I've been trying to meet deadlines and have met them now...until the next round.

Pfft snow.
And I'm on the other side of the state...we're facing BRRRRRRRR. But personally, I'll take the cold vs. the snow every time. (even as I burrow under the covers. lol)

My current WIP made me slow down and take notice. It made me see that I was fighting my natural voice and was hurting the story instead of helping it. That and my CP with her virtual slap in the head...it's back on track now.
