Some Thoughts...

My Kindle Broke…

And other quasi-unimportant tragedies that have made my week so darn busy.

I’d like to start out by thanking Amazon.com. I am told that my replacement Kindle is on the way. WOO HOO.

I am, admittedly, a book-addict. It’s very hard for me to not read. It’s actually a punishment for me to go a whole day without doing any reading. So, since I read almost entirely on the Kindle now, it’s been very hard for me to go cold turkey on this problem.

Consequently, I’ve been trying to keep myself out of the house so I don’t notice that I’m not reading. What does this mean? It also means I’m not writing as much because I’m not at home to do the actual work.

So to compound my lack of reading, I am now going through writing withdrawals.

I know that Sandra Sookoo always leads us in great discussions on this blog that gets everyone really fired up. I sometimes think, as I sit down to do this, that I’d like to come up with topics like that but the truth is that I’m pretty dull in real life.

I have three children, less than five years old, all boys actually. I go to soccer games, and most recently T-Ball, I run errands, and drive children around. Yesterday was kind of exciting because I got the baby’s six-month photos done. I like to go out to eat and to watch television at night with my husband…

But in my mind I’m always on grand adventures. Outside of my writing, it’s very difficult for me to expression controversial things that might keep you all interested enough to run out here to read what I’ve written.

So I guess I’m not much of a blogger…

Truth is, I’m pretty bloodthirsty in my mind. My characters have grand adventures, huge love stories, and destinies they need to fulfill. Sometimes the bad guys win. Sometimes whom the reader initially thinks is the bad guy, is actually the good guy and ‘good’ is not always interesting in my worlds.

I’m going to continue to dream up the paranormal, I can’t seem to stop myself and I’m immensely grateful that you read them.

Gotta get back to my writing now. My heroine is about to become a vampire….

LOL My life isn't interesting either, but I do kinda like to make waves :-) There's no such thing as bad publicity, right? :-)

Get to writing. I'm sure there's stuff for you to read in your box LOL

Thanks Sandi. I've certainly been enjoying reading what's in my mailbox!

Annie Nicholas said...

It broke! You read it to death? LOL

You can do reviews like you do on Goodreads.

I wish I could read more. I don't have as much time anymore. I don't even watch TV.

Reading... now that was something I used to do for pleasure. Now I'm lucky if I have one hour of reading on the train in the afternoons. I must admit I do read a lot of submissions, but that's not quite the same because it's not the final product.

Nerine,
No way could it be the same as pleasure reading. LOL. Plus the pressure to get it done has to be completely different.

Annie-I did, I read it to death. LOL

Synchronicity - my heroine became a vampire last night. If I weren't playing on Twitter, she'd be finding out about now and having a major hissy fit. Guess I'd better go do that...

Ari, that is so funny. You know what they say about 'Great Minds' LOL
