The Friday Slows

Friday, Sep 19

I seem to have a case of go-slow this morning, which is why I’m so late getting to this blog. Took my time with the journaling today, and did three laps around the pasture, to get the old circulation going. And now I’m ready to write Chapter 10 of “The Bridegroom”.

I am so loving this book. I wish I could have you right here, reading over my shoulder, in fact.

Writing is a magical process for me. Of course, as with every book, I had a general idea of what would happen when I started this new story, but a lot of what happens comes as a real surprise, too. I positively love watching the characters grow and change, love getting to know them. I find the secondary characters fascinating; it’s wonderful when they step right up and show me who they are, remind me that, like Gideon and Lydia, they have full lives, too. They have secrets and fears and qualities that set them apart from every other human being on earth, just as you and I do.

I’ll be working this weekend–I want to finish the book before I leave on tour at the end of the month, if I can–but maybe ‘working’ isn’t the proper word, because this is so much fun.

I’ll “see” you on Monday. In the meantime, be kind to yourself.
