Hi! I'M HOME! At last. It's been an amazing 6-ish weeks. I haven't updated here for a while, but I've been posting pics on Twitter (here) if you want to see what we've been up to in France and then, last week, Phoenix Comicon :-) Amazing as our travels were, it's soooo good to be home! Chores galore, but soon those will be managed and we'll be back into a normal life routine, including full immersion in NEW BOOK PROJECT(s)! YAY!
I came across this quote at some point online and scribbled it down in my notebook. It feels like a good time to share it:
"One reason people have artist's block is that they do not respect the law of dormancy in nature. Trees don't produce fruit all year long constantly. They have a point when they go dormant.
And when you are in a dormant period creatively, if you can arrange your life to do the technical tasks that don't take creativity, you are essentially preparing for the spring when it will all blossom again."
I've not been entirely idle these past weeks, but any non-idleness has been low pressure and exploratory. Some writers dive straight from one book to another, but I've found that I need time to refill the well with feathers and glitter and butterflies, and there's no better way to do this than travel! I'm happy to report that my well is feeling sparkly again! Oh, it's so good to be home and embarking on a new book journey. (Details on that to come!)
I think I'll be around here on the blog more frequently this summer. I hope so, anyway. I've missed it, and missed you! *HUG*
