It is better to attempt something great and fail, than to attempt to do nothing and succeed.

Summer Fun

My moods are ruled by the weather. I am a much happier person from March through November. I am a summer person all the way. I can sit in the sun all day long, but having a pool makes that bearable. I slap my hair up off my neck, kick off my shoes (not that I usually wear any) and soak up the rays. I am a true Alabama girl and wouldn't have it any other way.

I love the water. I don't care if it is the pool, the beach or the river. Residing on or near the water is where you will find me.

Finished my Novel!

Today was the day. I finally felt comfortable enough to send my novel to the agents that requested it, or I just had to stop myself from editing and rewriting. I loved writing it so much that I think I would never finish trying to make it perfect. I feel great about it! I love the characters and the story and have received great feedback so far. Keep your fingers crossed! Already have ideas for a sister novel.

Looking forward to the upcoming three day weekend, downtime and some breathing room. Think I may get some reading in.

Breaking Bad

Sun is shining, and I feel pretty good. When I am in a writing frenzy, it is hard to relax, but I make time for my favorite tv shows. I love to watch things that I feel are smartly written, shows that make me wish I was part of the writing team (yes, would love to sit around the table with the writers of Lost and throw in my ideas). Breaking Bad is such a show. For anyone who watched it this past week - WHAT THE HECK is wrong with Jessie? Can he be anymore stupid? Every opportunity he gets, he messes it up. Ughh!

I was disgusted he went to his group meeting to conjure up business. That was low. Does he not remember what he has lost and what he endured to kick his addiction (I know, they subsitute one for another, and his idiocy).

Happy Mother's Day! I had a great one. My oldest son surprised me and showed up Friday. We had a great visit. My Mom and sister came to see me too. We went to our local trade-in book store and I picked up a few books. I got a Ted Dekker novel I haven't read yet. Love his books. I also got the one I keep hearing and reading so much about The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. I can't wait to read it. Being the bargain shopper I am, I picked up one more book out of the 50 cent box.

So, here's to happy reading and writing. This week will certainly be as busy, if not more so, than they all have been lately. Can't wait to head up to the river in a few weeks and spend the summer. Bring on the inspiration!
