Hi all you lovely people!
I'm back from my mini-vacation - and I'm all relaxed and so much not in work mode - LOL. But I'll be around to see you all during the remainder of the week.
I wish all of you could have been with me - such a wonderful time. I'll tell you all about it next week.

Each time we write a story we take an adventure. A big part of the journey takes place before we ever type the first word. We meet vampires, psychopaths, superheros, pirates, dragons. Maybe even a sheep or two. Or a pizza delivery man.
As we craft our story, our characters take an adventure. Maybe it's on the high seas, in a dark, damp cave, in a glitzy world capital, or in a cornfield. Or maybe even all the way around the block.
And when our story is released, our readers take an adventure all their own. Each reader brings her own experiences and outlooks to our stories and creates a new one of her own.
Sometimes our stories are edge-of-the-seat adventure, sometimes it's tension-filled but the adventure is more subtle. Sometimes the adventure is so funny you can't stop laughing, sometimes it makes you cry. The same adventure may be all of that, and sometimes our hero may fall in or out of love.
As the writer, the choice is yours. Travel paths you haven't visited before. Seek new meanings to familiar events. Explore. Apply your findings to the page.
Go ahead . . . take an adventure.
And let us experience it, too!
