Honesty in stories. Truth in words.

Happy New Year!

Back up a moment…perhaps I should start by saying Merry Christmas. :)

How was your Christmas? For the first time in four years, we had a white Christmas…I was SO excited!  Did anyone else get a white Christmas?

My parents gave me a sweet little Kindle Paperwhite, which I absolutely love. I’ve never had an e-reader before, other than the Kindle app on my phone, and I must say that I’m thoroughly hooked. Of course, I’ll take a hard copy any day, but if I must read an e-book, the Paperwhite is the next best thing.

Also, I got three paperback books, which I have already read. *sheepish grin* They were all A-M-A-Z-I-N-G.



I have spent the past four days totally relaxing. Trust me, it has been divine. I lost count of how many novels I’ve read, but it was at least seven in a three day period, all of which I’ve been wanting to read for some time but haven’t had the chance to. And, thanks to my new glasses, I was able to read for hours upon hours without going cross-eyed. :)

Purposely, I put writing away for those four days. It was hard, but I’m glad I took the time off. My brain was exploding with ideas (halfway good ideas, too!) for my stories. And since I’ve allowed myself to write again, I’ve been typing up a storm!

Happy New Year! :)

  1. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you too! :)

    All that reading sounds like fun. I’ve also had more time to read over the past few days, though I haven’t read nearly as much as you have. ;) My stack or list (depending on if you are talking about real books or kindle books) is still huge, but I have made progress which is so nice.
    Yep, taking a break from writing can often give your brain a chance to formulate an amazing amount of new ideas! I can’t wait to get back to writing next week!

      Thanks Rebekah! Reading is so much fun. Are you working on any big projects right now? After devouring Through the Tunnel, I can’t wait for more of your books! :)
