Weekend Enjoyment

After an Easter weekend of enjoyment with my family, I feel a little guilty having neglected my writings. It was an excellent trade-off: fun with the kids, outstanding food prepared by my wife who is the ONLY one in her family that can cook! And finally an exciting morning for our kids seeing that the Easter Bunny had visited, leaving all manner of colored footprints about their rooms.

But I feel compelled to return to my writings, especially having received loads of inpiration from my wife and children. I feel the dam is about to burst, and I can't wait to spill my ideas all over the page- er, well type on the computer. I will still enjoy the rest of my holiday weekend before the work must resume. I feel so good about this all, and can't wait for the end to finally be written.

But, I will be patient. And in the words of Marcus Tullius Cicero- Dum Spiro spero.


  1. Sometimes that short break is just what we need to get refueled. And, uh, very smart of you to marry the one who knows how to cook. :)

    Carpe diem!

  2. Thank you so much for stopping by and visiting my blog. Your comments have been wonderful! This whole publisher thing has gotten me pretty down, but it's comments like yours that continue to make me think positively.

    Have a great one!

    Gabrielle :)

  3. It was a great refueling. Yes, she was a great catch, in many ways.

    Gabrielle- It's advice I'd live by as well. It's your masterpiece.

  4. Happy Easter! I always feel guilty when I neglect the wip for a day or two - but the characters are always in my thoughts!

  5. Family can be an inspiration. Sometimes I soothe my guilty conscience by taking a writing pad and trying to jot down a few lines. Something is better than nothing, I guess. Stay well! Darrell.
