Meh . . .

I'm weird. I know I am, but it doesn't stop my sense of humor from overtaking my good sense at times. Mostly I hide my weirdness from the world but, after the year that has played out so far like a badly written fantasy novel, my mind has finally snapped and I've decided to just say 'to heck with it' and write whatever comes to my mind. Not in my books, obviously, I still want you guys to like them. But here on my blog. This cartoon sums up my feelings perfectly for the last book I've written. That's when I realized that I don't do it for anyone but me. I want the books to be perfect and if readers find them and love them, then that's awesome but if no one does, then I won't let it define my writing.

I've always thought I loved writing romance, but as I've gotten older I think I like writing all kinds of different things and while romance will always be my first love, don't be surprised if you see me dive into fantasy or women's fiction where romance isn't the focal point of the book. The woman's journey to find herself is. Today's world has a lot of differences and being from a small town in Maine, there is a lot of things going on that I don't really identify with. But something we all identify with is the journey of self discovery. No promises on how often I'll post, but I'm putting it on my schedule, just like I'm putting on my writing and editing. The next focus for me is focus. Not procrastinating. Who's with me?
