I honestly don’t know what to write. I’ve been sitting here for the past 40 minutes looking at a piece of paper. Writing things then erasing them.

It’s almost the same process with my WIP these days, so I guess it’s not just the book it’s me.

I’ve had a lot on my personal plate lately that has taken up what I believe is every creative bone in my body. I can’t tell if I’m coming or going.

And now the holidays are just around the corner. I mean really when did that happen? How did November sneak up on me and I missed it all?

I don’t know about you, but my holiday is going to be small, probably smaller than last year even. Of course, it’s about money, but more important is that I don’t need anything. Sure there are things that we all want, but to sacrifice paying the bills, or getting behind, or stealing from savings for one day out of the year has become ridiculous to me.

Could be that I’m getting older, Princess is older, and I’ve realized that it’s my friends and family that mean more to me than possessions.

Or maybe it’s as one of my friends tells me every year, “This is my Scrooge time of year.”

Either way, I want to make memories, because time seems to fly by me too fast. I can tell you more about my characters than I can about the people around me. SO NOT GOOD!!!

So my quote to live by: We only live once – live it!

I’d love to hear what’s on your mind as we go into the holiday season.
