My writer friends. They make me laugh. They inspire me. They meet me to write and keep me accountable. We can create alone but we can’t make it alone. Writing. It IS a spectator sport! And my husband. He gives me as much time as I need to go off and write. How would I ever finish this new novel without him?
My son. This summer is a mellow one with him. He’s in his “I love mommy” stage and it’s the most wonderful joy. He fills up my deepest well that I never knew was so empty. And my book. My characters. They live deep inside me and fulfill me. I am blessed to have found what I want to be when I grow up and am living it every day as a mom and a writer.
ThrillerFest! Off to NYC this premier-pharmacy.com/product/topamax/ week to hang with some great authors and new authors. Get to present my book at the conference as an ITW Debut Author. Nervous but hope to make lots of new friends!
This week it’s physical pain. The psioriatic arthritis in my hands is bad. They feel like gnarly, twisted sticks that can’t do their job. I take black cherry pills to ward it off but have been lax in doing so. So my bad! But with every ache typing and every problem holding things, I know that it is a minor inconvenience in my life compared to others who suffer greatly.
Share with me: What are your people, passion, places, and pain this week? I hope it’s filled with more passion and less pain!

Happy to see my pic as one of your “people”! Even if from afar. Having trouble settling into my novel writing without the smell of Indian food at Wegman’s!
Kathryn, of course! And it was very lonely at Wegmans on Saturday…no one’s “ah-ha!” moments to chat about as we write away 🙂
People would be friends, and the people I am discovering to read and learn from as I get more involved in writing.
Passion- I’m so scattered – its the blogs and writing and editing them, new book reviews and my wishlist of reads, and the ongoing challenge of getting into shape.
Places: I haven’t gone far this summer – we pop up to Lake Lanier to hang out with friends on a boat.. we are heading to Mississippi for some time with his family, and I’m hoping to get to Boston and NY before October – just to visit with old friends.
Pain – less pain than just overwhelming draining of energy from the unusual heat and barometric changes from thunderstorms taking my sleep away
Gaele, I like your answer on passion – that its scattered. How wonderful to have so many in the breeze! Sounds like you are traveling around the country the next few months. Where is Lake Lanier? Sounds lovely. We are off to NC in September to visit my dad at the beach. A nice time to go. We have had the same thunderstorms here that boom boom overhead in the middle of the night and shake the very ground.
