With all this gorgeous spring weather we've had I have been shirking my responsibilities, writing-wise. Yeah, I really have. And no, I'm not proud of it. But I've been tempted by the warm, sultry breezes of spring...and I've not been able to resist.


I guess you know one of my weakest points now, don't you? I'm a sucker for being outside.

I do my best writing when it's wet, cold, snowy, get the idea. When the sun is shining and the world is calling, it's a struggle for me to keep my behind in my chair and my fingers on the keyboard.

Still, one must resist temptation occasionally. So today I'll write. The book is actually nearing the home stretch, the point where I've got to tie the ends up and find a way to satisfy every character, as well as the eventual readers. This is an exciting time for me, seeing my goal is near and completely attainable.Yeah, today I'll write. And tomorrow there's rain in the forecast. Who knows? Maybe by next week I'll be able to play outside without the book hanging over my head.

That is, until I begin working on the next book...

I'm going to enjoy today. I hope you do, too.
