I started to write about my regrets of the past two months. How I haven't been well and I haven't written, not much anyway and how blah blah blah - my life isn't going as I want it to. Bah humbug to that sort of post.
However I realized I needed to write about the hope that has filled my heart in the last few days. As I worked yesterday on "the" story, I felt motivation pour through my veins and I realized that spending time regretting something is spending valuable time I could have used anticipating what my characters would be doing next. Or anticipating the next story that's mulling around in my brain. OR actually working at the computer turning my dreams into reality!
I have a number of ideas with help from writing buddy Sherry Hartzler on epubbing some of our work. She's already doing a bang up job of promoting her books Three Moons Over Sedona and Island Passage over at Amazon, ebooks for Kindle. You might want to check them out. Very inexpensive and great reads. They're both available in paperbacks as well, if you prefer the old fashioned way of reading as I do.
I don't have a Kindle and am content to still hold a book in my hand but maybe someday my thoughts on that will change.
Right now my holidays are filled with hope. Hope for the well being and health of my family, hope for the future of our country - I know that's far fetched but still....I'm hopeful we'll get back on track. And hope I'll be able to get my three unfinished novel written to THE END.
Maintaining hope is often something we have to work at. I easily get bogged down in the silt of life and have to pick myself up and dust myself off and get back on the track of life. It's an ongoing process. We just have to hang in! Hope you are hangin'.
Hope your holidays are filled with hope and joy and goodwill toward man. After all. It's all we can do. HOPE.
God bless you and yours this hope filled holiday season.
