I am so tired of sunlight. I’ll be so happy when autumn fully kicks in. Summer’s on the wane, I can tell. The days are shorter, the nights are cooler, the sun–even on sunny days–isn’t as hot. So I watch the season pass and wait for my favorite time of the year. Sunlight and heat can trigger reactions for me, so when the clouds come in and the days cool down, I’m so relieved.
I’m starting work on the Blood Queen series this week–on the first book, BLOOD ROSES. Someone asked me what my inspiration for the series was, and frankly, I can’t give you a good answer. I just…had a flash of inspiration and it stayed with me, and here I am, about to write the first book. For me, writing’s like that a lot. A flash of inspiration, a whisper of words, an image from a dream…and somehow it wriggles its way into my subconscious and sometime later, boom…I have the idea for a new series, a new book.
I’ve been rewatching Desperate Housewives over the past few weeks. I’m up to season 8 and into it, and A) I realize how much I love this show, B) My likes/dislikes of characters has changed over the years to a degree, C) I really loved the writing back when it first came on and I still love the writing now.
Otherwise, life is moving. It’s odd how, though my life hasn’t changed a whole lot due to the pandemic, everything has changed. So tell me, how’s your week shaping up? What are you up to?
