Ever have one of those days where you wake up and are just thrilled by everything!? I did today, just a lot of good stuff happening. The sky is blue for once instead of the usual depressing gray. I love spring don't get me wrong, but the beginning of it is so wet and dreary lol.
I find myself really into flowers and planting them and fruits or veggies this year. The kids planted vegetables in their little greenhouse kits and two of them are already sprouting. Now as for my gardening skills, I am not sure if I can keep vegetables thriving. But the plant in my home is just gorgeous and I call him Frank. haha Frank is a green houseplant and he is just doing so good. My mom always had these plants since I can remember, and I somehow picked up the tradition.
Book six in the series, I titled it "Back to life" is going places. I really love writing this one, so much has changed. Eve is in a good place in some ways.As a writer I tend to favor characters, but I never let that get in between what I want to happen. Its almost like real life, I try to let them do what is best for them...or what they think is best for them. I don't know if that is even possible when the characters in my books are so dysfunctional.
I can't wait to finish this one, to see what it turns into. I enjoy rereading my books when they're done. Its the one time I feel like I can really enjoy them.
Everyday I think about Heart of Gypsies, and how I want to write the next book. There is so much I want to happen. I feel robbed lol At the same time I really liked how it turned out, there is just some things that really stick with me. And some things I wish I could change not change the story, but I really feel like a second book would let me explore these options.
Sometimes I feel haunting is good, and I have always been a believer in not making everything so perfect. But for once I have to admit I smack my head at the ending sometimes. The ending was right, but it doesn't mean it didn't hurt! lol
