Hello, Dear Readers! I hope this post finds you well! I also hope your Christmas holiday was a good one.
Ours was nice & peaceful. We played board games, & watched “A Christmas Story’ on tv. I fixed us a nice German style dinner. Exactly the kind of day I like. I have lost my love of the more traditional Christmases after many, many bad Christmases over the last 20+ years, so the more non-traditional things suit me fine.
I’ve been working on the new book. It’s going pretty well- about 70 pages so far. Today for some reason, I hit a writing block, so I’m going to ignore the book for a day or two. I think it’s just stress- I’m not good at handling stress anymore. Anyway, distance can be very beneficial to alleviating writer’s block. When you do go back to writing, it’s like you have a fresh view of your work, & creativity can flow easier. Most times, anyway.
So I’ve been using this free time to read a wonderful book- “Homer’s Odyssey” by Gwen Cooper. Homer is a blind kitty, & he is utterly amazing. If you love animals, at least cats, it’s a great read!! Homer reminds me of a smaller, blind version of my first cat, Magic. Highly intelligent, devoted, protective, loving, playful. Quite a special guy!
Hope everyone has a great day, & in case I don’t get back here in the next few days, a very blessed new year!!!
