I have been neglecting my blob (and emails and dishes and housework) because I started a new book. It is a fantasy. I have never written fantasy before, so this is an all new genre and I am loving it. I feel like I have finally found my calling in life. I know that sounds weird, but for the last couple of years I have had bouts of depression and felt like I had no direction. I kept telling everyone that I needed to get away "find myself", but no one understood. I'm sure some of you have felt that way from time to time. Since I started this book, the inspiration has been flowing like crazy. I have a strange adrenaline that I have never experienced, even in my daily activities. I have a new attitude at work, I have more patience with my son and I've lost 5 pounds. I know some of that is just because I am glued to my computer and forget to eat, but...the fact is, I love life. My husband says I act like I'm on drugs, but I don't care. I don't even care if the book gets published (okay, so that's not totally true). I am just having a blast writing it.
About 6 months ago, I had a dream. My dreams are very vivid and sometimes go on for several nights. It's like watching a movie. Anyway...the dream I had was about 2 girls in their early 20's that were best friends. One is a photographer and the other one does editing and posting for her online photography studio. One day....
Okay, you have to wait for the book. Sorry. I just have to say that one of the girls is from "another place" and there is all kinds of magical stuff that happens to them, including a warrior with lots of muscles, long dark hair and....Nope...you have to wait for the book...LOL
If you haven't guessed, the book is based on my dream. Maybe that is why I am so passionate about it. When I get more of it written and polised, I will post a small tidbit for everyone to read.
Until then, I'm back to my writing. Yippee!!!
