I'd love to say I have all my blog posts written or at least planned well in advance. But it just ain't so.
Sometimes I do. Like when I'm all excited about my guest blogger for next Monday, author Carol Kilgore.
But sometimes I'm planning Monday morning's post on Sunday night. And nothing happens. No ideas. Brain totally empty. Well, lots of random thoughts but nothing to build a post around.
So I decided to finished the mystery I was reading instead, AMONG THE DEPARTED by Vicki Delany. Now, I'm a little embarrassed to admit this because I won this book in a blog contest back in September 2011. I added it to my TBR pile and it somehow got buried there. Definitely my loss. I really enjoyed it. One thing I especially liked was the way Vicki used multiple POVs. I do that myself so it was interesting to see how she led me from one character's mind to another. How about you? Do you enjoy reading stories written in multiple POVs? Do you enjoy writing them?
I stayed up reading after my husband went to bed. It was snowing and I left the outside light on so I could watch it fall and mark the depth on the deck railing. Somewhere around midnight, Sophie wanted to go outside (for my new followers, Sophie is a very adorable, very neurotic Jack Russell terrier we rescued last year). As I stood there in the open door, watching the snow fall, I was struck by the incredibly quiet. No sound at all. Have you ever noticed that? Does falling snow actually muffle sound or does it just seem that way?
Here's the view from my bedroom window this morning.
Pretty, isn't it? But I'll be very happy if this is the last snow of the year.
Quick note. I've signed up to attend the Writers Police Academy next September. Registration opened, filled, and closed in less than a week. This will be my second time going to the WPA and I can't wait. The only downside is it's just two weeks after Killer Nashville, which I also want to do this year. I have to decide if I'm going to missed Nashville or splurge and do both. Are you going to any conferences this year? What's your favorite or which would you like to attend? Anyone going to WPA or Killer Nashville?
That's it for today. See you on Wednesday.
Thought for Today:
I planted some bird seed. A bird came up.
Now I don't know what to feed it.
