Lost in the corn maze and considering a path of our own devising.
I usually take a few days off after I’ve met a deadline. In this case, I turned in The Darkest Kiss (after finishing the book in a record three months) on Friday. So I took the weekend off (mostly).
Yesterday I had a booksigning in Lexington, KY with Lora Leigh, Shiloh Walker and Toni Blake/Lacey Alexander. But that’s not really work, more like play. Sunday my husband and I took our daughter to a function at a local farm where we picked pumpkins, went on a hay ride and navigated a corn maze. We had a nice day together. I love spending time with my family. I’m blessed because I get to do a lot of that. I never take it for granted.
Er, a quick note about the corn maze…a whole bunch of us got lost in this thing…pretty badly. We actually cheated and found a pathway out through the stalks. Otherwise I think someone would have stumbled across our time-whitened bones sometime in the future. This autumn, beware the corn mazes, people. Beware.
In all, it was a nice weekend and yet….and yet…I’m itchy to start a new book. Funny, isn’t it? I can’t even take off a couple days without starting to plot the next novel. It’s a sickness, I swear.
And I’m a fan of authors taking breaks. I think we all need to do that once in a while to rejuvenate, recharge the muse, so to speak. But every time I try to take time off, even if it’s only a couple of days, I always find my brain turning toward a plot. Even though I’m not writing, I’m still writing…at least in my head. I’m like a terrier with a tennis ball and wicked case of obsessive compulsive disorder.
So, yeah, it was a nice weekend. How was yours?
Oh, and where’s my laptop?
