Here's what's new

Thursday through Monday, I was housebound due to a big snow storm that is rare for our neck of the woods. It was very pretty. And quiet. I'm always amazed how much quieter everything is during and after a lot of snow falling.

It's like a the world is snuggled under a giant quilt, sleeping.

The kids loved having a couple of snow days. But I am glad the temperature is back to normal (way above normal, actually, as we're sitting at 50!! degrees today) and I can take the dog for a walk and not worry about falling and breaking my neck.

I know the south and the east are about to get slammed with another big storm, and I am so, so sorry! Winter sucks. That's all there is to it. Hang in there.

The good news is that since I was stuck at home, and my husband had to work, I wrote a LOT. In fact, I finished a draft of a new book. It's always such an exciting thing - to get to the end of something I started a few months ago, not knowing for sure if I'd get to the end or not. Never gets old, let me tell you. I'm working on revisions now so I can send it to my agent soon and see what she thinks. I don't want to say a lot, but I will say this. It's kind of a strange book, but I am *really* excited about it, because strange isn't always a bad thing. There's a fine line, I know, but when done right, the unique and the odd can create a great read. Here's hoping...

Along with getting this new thing ready for my agent to read, I have first pass pages to go through on one of the CHARMED LIFE books. And I have edits coming soon on another book I sold recently but haven't announced yet. When all of that's done, I plan on taking a couple of months off from writing.

Honest. Really! I am!!

I'll still be working, since I have Skype visits and other appearances coming up, but it's time to fill the well on the writing end of things. I'm sure it won't be long before I'll be itching to get back to it. But for now, I'm looking forward to some time off to do other things.

Go to my son's track meets!
Spring clean! (Okay, looking forward to that is reaching, but still. Needs to be done.)

Hope all is well in your neck of the woods. Only 35 days until spring! See?
