As the rain pours down, the thunder rolls, and the lighting flashes across the sky… the girlie and I cuddle beneath Nana’s blanket. Listening, and loving the sights, sounds, and smells of a Summer storm. 🙂
On an unrelated note… I’ve finished the manuscript for my children’s story. What possessed me to write a children’s book I’ll never know. But it was the first time my muse hit me in such an unrelenting fashion in a long time. I’m quite comfortable writing canine non-fiction (dog training advice, behaviour tips, and breed information most commonly). But then, one evening, laying in bed next to my sleeping girl I just felt the NEED to write. The only thing near by was my BlackBerry… so believe it or not I actually wrote the first 1/3 of the manuscript on that. LMAO Hey! When the muse hits, the muse hits! If I’ve learned one thing as a writer it’s to listen to my inner voice.
Now I begin taking steps on completely foreign soil. I don’t have contacts (agents and publishers) in this world. In non-fiction, doing what I’ve been doing for years? Yep. I know many folks. But this is something completely new to me. So it’s a new adventure… but one I think will be very worth fully delving into. Wish me luck.
