Hello Hello Hello.
I am literally just sitting at my computer debating on whether to really do anything today. I guess today was just one of those days where all I want to do is drink coffee and read books. I would much rather be doing it in a place where it is a lot less sweltering. I love California, but I really don’t like the weather. I can’t tell you the last time I saw snow fall or the leaves turn a different color. Days like this are when I wish I still lived up north.
I can guarantee that I will be moving back up there sometime in my life. If you have never lived in the Pacific North West then you are missing out. The culture is just beautiful. The Indian tribe and the wildlife is magnificent. As a child I used to visit the Indian Reservations and it truly opened my eyes up to nature and how everything is connected in life.
I have always been a spiritual person and through the legends and stories that I have heard gave a new meaning to what I consider life. If you live near a tribe I suggest reading about their culture.
Anyways I finally got a new laptop, so I am able to really focus on my writing and get back into it. My book is coming along slowly. I keep having plot changes and character readjustments. I hope that what ever I can come up with, people will enjoy. Writing is my escape and I like to think of it as my diary. In thirty years I can go back and read what I had written whether it was on this blog or in on of my ratty journals, it all tells a story.
Recently I have been writing on anything and anything. The other day I was sat in a Cheesecake Factory and I all of a sudden got an idea for a small scene between my character and her father. So instead of grabbing my phone like a normal person I started writing on the back of a napkin. I think that if I physically write it down first then it really sticks inside my head.
Lately I have been listening to a lot of Sleeping at Last. If you don’t know the band, it’s the most unique sound that I have heard in a long time. The lead singer’s voice is very soothing and I always fall asleep listening to them. Favorite song is probably Woodwork or Earth. Check them out!
That’s about it. I just wanted to ramble for a bit. Hope you are enjoying your summer!
