cornucopia-thanksgiving    Cornucopias represent bounty and my life is full of bounty this week.

I’m back to having more time on my hands again just in time for the holidays.  Being semi-retired can be confusing.  This week after finishing a couple of months working for a young mother on maternity leave I suddenly realized I could write again, so I began a new novel.  Young Adult this time.  Something I wanted to try for some time.  I am so thankful to have the opportunity to do both, work at the office and work from home.  My great boss seems to know I am having trouble letting go and sometimes he needs extra help, so we support each other.

I received a great honor this week when I heard from my publisher that the art work on my finished novel had begun.  I was blown away with the expertise of his craft.  I hope my writing can stand up to the fantastic art that accompanies it.   I can’t wait to tell you more about this project in the months ahead.

I am so thankful to have my family in for the holidays this week.  I’m thankful for the food and the warm homes where we will eat it.  We have so many people with different places to go; we’ll have to have two dinners this year. Oh no!

I’m also thankful for the gym to work some of those calories off afterwards.  So, let the feasting begin!!!

What are you thankful for this week?

    How exciting to see the way an artist interprets you book. That’s so great! I’m writing also today. And I wish you many words.


  2. Can’t wait to see the artwork that’s paired up your novel – sounds like it’s on its way to awesome!
