My first sale through a book store.  Thank you Kris and the Clinton Book Shop.

And this afternoon...

The Clinton Book Shop now has my book in stock.  Get ye there if you need a copy!

The things that keep us going

I keep saying that what keeps me writing is the writing itself and that is wholly true.  There is not a day that I am not compelled to sit down and write something that is not a manual on how to use on of the hospital's data bases.

But beyond that, I am a human being and recognition of my writing is always something that makes me smile.  After all I feel when I hold my book in my hand, I like it better when I see it in someone else's hand.

I hear from a friend this morning that the book club of her church has chosen In Between Goodbyes as one of their books this summer.  Warms the cockles of my heart, it does.

Midnight Inspiration - keeping the baby awake

Well not quite, but I find the best time for inspiration is whenever I'm in the bath before going to bed.  If I don't get it on paper then, the idea goes totally away so I spend my first 15 minutes in bed writing down the inspiration.  That, in turn, leaves me awake for awhile.

I've thought of taking an earlier bath but somehow my brain is on to me and I don't get any inspiration.

Any ideas?
