Everyone knows writers live in other worlds inside their minds. Characters chatter, people get shot, couples fall in love, all surrounded in a make-believe world.
Then the doorbell rings or your cell chimes and the writer has to step out of one world and step into reality. The only way I can explain the fast change is it’s like changing trains while both are going 100 miles an hour.
So, as a writer for thirty years, I’ve become accustomed to jumping from racing trains. Only lately, I’ve been writing more because I’m staying home. More books, more fiction, more worlds to live in.
Right now I’m promoting one book, PICNIC IN SOMEDAY VALLEY. I’m doing edits on DINNER ON PRIMROSE HILL and writing Book 4 in the series.
Since I have about twenty-five characters in each book, that is 75 people running around in my brain.
People ask me if I’m lonely during this time. How could I be? There is a party going on in my study.
When a writer’s brain begins to shatter, what happens? Nothing. It’s just part of the job. I don’t need TV. I’ve already got too many channels in my head.
And, I love it. I never get my characters mixed up but I wouldn’t be surprised if one day I don’t call my son by a character’s name.
Last week my agent called and asked if I had an idea for the next series. I smiled and opened another channel.
I hope you’ll grab your favorite food and drink and enjoy a picnic with your family and friends. Let me know which character from any book you would love to have a picnic with. I would love to give away a copy of PICNIC IN SOMEDAY VALLEY to one lucky winner. Giveaway rules apply.
