Meander 1 -- Reading _ A bit of varied reading last week. Finn by Michael Geraghty - what a great take on motorcycle gang stories. You can go home again but only if you're willing to face both the bad times and the good. The Seven-Foot Cupid by Edward Hoornaert - a touch of science fiction and a lot of humor in this romance. Dare to Tease by Carly Phillips friend and great author. Enjoyed the emotion as usual/ FinallyOrigin of Pietas - by Kayelle Allen - Science fiction again but with an emotional kick and a good story about the friendship between a super man and a human. All good reads.
Meander 2 - Thoughts - Phone calls and emails - Today we keep in touch several ways one by phone and two by emails. I learned two things. Some phone calls are great and some bring youdown. This is a bad time for all of us but dwelling on the negative is such a downer. I try not to do this. Happens though. Also try not to get into politics when speaking to people but that also happens. That can make me a bit steamed but I try to ignore and try to present the facts that I have researched. Emails are a cleaner way to go most of the time. The one thing I try not to do is fire off one in response to something another person has said. Usually works. Especially since I have learned over the years not to take things like the panning of one of my books seriously. There are times when I review goes up I would like to reply to, especially when they post something clearly showing they haven't read the book. But sending emails to congratulate someone or send good wished is fun to do.
Meander 3 - Writing - Am on the last and final draft of Haunted Dreams and re-writing a lot of scenes. It's the typing that takes forever so that is keeping me pinned to the computer. I always re-type the final draft since I've put in so many changes I want to make sure what I've added or subtracted dowsn't halt the flow. I should finish by the end of the month and that will be ahead of schedule.
