A quick note to explain my long absence from my blog: In February I went house hunting and went into negotiations on the purchase of a new home 760 miles away from my old home. In March and April the house went into escrow, so we began packing and fixing up our old house to get it ready for the market. In May we moved from Nevada to Arizona. We are still unpacking, but someday soon I hope to return to working on my novel and updating my blog.
With new spaces come new inspirations. I now have two covered patios from which I can write, so unless I have to start working for a regular paycheck right away to pay the bills, I expect to become more prolific than ever. Imagine yourself writing with an unobstructed view of one of the most beautiful mountain ranges in the world, the only sounds being a variety of birds calling out, and wild bunnies nibbling on desert brush at your feet. That's where I'm at.
