Weather on Not…
Tuesday, February 4th, 2014

After writing over 5000 words yesterday, I’m nearing the end of my latest SEAL story, Mutiny’s Bounty. I need to work like an automaton to get through my huge list of January projects. I think I worked well yesterday because the sun was out and the sky was a perfectly clear and bright blue. I felt happy and the writing showed it. Today, it’s raining and cold—as dreary a forecast as you can imagine. And I’m tired. Does weather affect you? I used to like rainy days. I loved any excuse to snuggle in a blanket and put my feet up to read a book or watch a movie. I’m ready for pool weather now!

Maybe I’m tired as well because I have so much more on plate than just books. I have a house to sell that has to be repaired and refurbished, and yes, I’m not doing any of the physical work, but I do have to run around to meet realtors, get utilities turned back on, etc. I really hate going out and about. Does that make me a shut-in? Have I become that weird writer-hermit person? I don’t like dressing up or putting on makeup or shoes. And I’m perfectly happy letting my hair frizz because blow-drying and straightening is too much work. Whoa. I am that person!

Maybe it’s just the weather. I used to think winter was my favorite season, but no more. What about you? If you didn’t have to go outside to work or carry the kids to their destinations, would you be that weird shut-in person?

Oh, and a quick note about newsletters. Mine’s been boring as hell. I’m hoping to change that in the near future. While I work on that, make sure you’re signed up to receive it. There will be contests and offers you can only get through this subscription…


If you are interested in receiving news about book releases, appearances, or other fun news, sign up for my newsletter. You won’t be inundated with emails (I’m just too busy) and I will never give or sell your information to anyone.

    I would be at the beginning of the season, but as I get acclimated and sheer boredom sets in, I’d be driven out….during the day…at the warmest point…if there were no snow.

    I would AB-SO-LUTELY be that strange lady in the ‘hood who never leaves her house! Have laptop… wine.. Kindle… and fluffy golden retrievers to sit on my feet & keep them warm. What else does a girl need?

    Yup. I love being home just hanging with the dog. I could happily stay here and not go out except to buy groceries.
