If It’s Tuesday…

This must be Spokane!

Honestly, I have been so ridiculously busy lately, I meet myself coming and going.

I attended my first art class last night–at least the first one I’ve taken in recent years–and I really enjoyed it. I certainly have a long way to go–we drew corn cobs and mine is disembodied from the stalk :)–but that’s okay. I’m there to learn. Since I’m an overachiever by nature, it’s both a struggle and a relief to let go of the desire to excel and simply draw.

Even in one go, I gained some insights. Art, according to my teacher, is really about learning to see. As I drove home, I was amazed to realize that the lines and shapes of things I passed were fairly jumping out at me. And that was in the dark!

I’m really onto something here. In fact, I can hardly wait until next week.

In the meantime, there is lots to do. I’m polishing “The Bridegroom” right now, and on Monday I’ll be starting a brand new story, “The Christmas Bride.” This year’s Christmas stories are “A McKettrick Christmas”, in stores on October 27, and “A Stone Creek Christmas”, a Silhouette Special Edition, will be part of the December lineup. In fact, if you belong to Harlequin’s book club, you probably already have it.

Since Christmas is my favorite holiday, I love writing stories set during the Holy Season. I’m still a little girl at heart, when the snow falls and the sleigh bells begin to jingle…
