I don’t know about you, but when the warm winds and indigo blue skies of summer appear on the horizon, the last thing I want to do is sit in a chair forcing myself to fight past the sticky middle of my current WIP (work-in-progress).
It’s literally like pulling teeth.
I’d much sooner have my hands buried up to the elbow in fine black planting soil, or daydream on the end of a water hose watching the hummingbirds and butterflies play in the breeze.
But, I also realize if I want to take this writing career seriously, and I do, I need to sometimes make sacrifices.
One thing I’ve learned is better time management. I’m a late riser, mornings are not my thing :), so I usually sit at the computer with my coffee and go through the social media platforms sharing and promoting.
Then I spend an hour or two visiting my mom next door before FINALLY waking up enough to begin my day!
I take the computer outside to our gazebo where I can work on my story while watering the flowers, and occasionally catching a glimpse of a friendly hummingbird or two.
Sometimes, I don’t get much writing done, but that’s okay. It’s a WIP, just like me 🙂
If you’d like to see what I’ve been up to lately, you can check out the new anthology written by members of my critique group to celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary!
Dreams and Promises
Dreams and Promises includes six short stories and novellas written by authors who live in beautiful British Columbia.
It’s our way of honoring Canada’s Sesquicentennial.
Some of Canada’s major cities were founded in the seventeenth century, but July 1st 2017 marks 150 years since our country became a Confederation.
Our stories range from the era of the fur trade, to a commercial enterprise that opened up the Canadian and American West, to present day James Bay, a thriving neighborhood in the garden city of Victoria, British Columbia.

Your setting for writing sounds wonderful. What a great place to spend hours whittling away at a WIP.
Congrats to you and the other authors on Dreams and Promises. I just grabbed a copy from Amazon!
