Random Thoughts

Thanks for all the great birthday wishes! It was a nice, relaxing day, exactly what I needed. I got in a nap and boy, did that ever feel good! And of course, the birthday cake tasted wonderful. And lo and behold, I had enough energy to work on my novel for a bit, too. Unfortunately, that meant I hit the sack a little too late and made it a bit hard to get through the day.

Last night I fought the urge to curl up on the couch and take a nap. Instead, I took the dog for a walk and then dived into some research for the novel I've been putting off for awhile. Sometimes, research requires good, old-fashioned note-taking, and that's what I did.

Short blog entry today as my head is too wrapped up in research and the novel (this is a good thing, right?) than it is in writing a scintillating blog post. I hope to be more witty and entertaining tomorrow. ;-)


  1. Glad you had a great b-day :) And I know what you mean about getting lost in research *g*.

    Do you take notes with pen/paper? Or on your laptop?

  2. Tess - I take notes with pen and paper. I know I could probably do it faster with the laptop, but I have a journal that I keep all my notes in and that way, it's all in one spot that I can take with me wherever. It's a process I started recently - to have a journal devoted to each novel. I really like it so far.

  3. Excellent! Short blog post and working on fiction -- now back to work!

  4. Happy B=Day by the way!

  5. Happy Belated Birthday.

    Enjoy the work on the novel.

    Thanks for the kind words about my grandmother.

  6. Lisa - I'm hard at it!

    Brian - Thanks!

    Devon - Thanks for the birthday wishes. And I will keep you in my thoughts - I know this is a tough time right now. Hang in there. :)


I love to hear from you!
