Get Up, Stand Up!
This, is by no means a call to arms – it’s simply the best way I get my brain kicking around some fresh ideas when sitting and staring at the screen doesn’t work anymore.
Life is pretty fluid around our house – there is always something going on. Cows needing to be moved to a different pasture, dogs needing a walk, a veg patch (constantly) in need of being weeded. The last one never gets done, but sometimes when I am struggling over a book, I pick myself up and go for a little wander – even if it’s just up to the barn to scratch a big, furry cow head or to the kitchen to clean out the crumbs underneath the toaster (Yes, some folk call this prevaricating, I call it….pontificating).
I know a chap who does his best thinking with his hands woven together behind his head whilst he’s lying on the sofa. Yes, he may accidentally fall asleep occasionally, but he’s written four books – so his snoozes are clearly productive. All of which is to say – find what works for you. I need to do something. Sometimes it’s just write a list! If I’m worried about not forgetting to get milk next time I go to the grocery store, or even remembering to go to the grocery store, I’m not focused on the story – and that is the very best place to be. Brain engaged, body engaged, fingers flying on the keyboard. So if it takes a walk, a list, a snooze or some weeding (pah ha ha!), go for it – just so long as you find yourself magnetically pulled back to the keyboard, or notepad with that Ah ha! Moment charging you at the end of it.
Unexpected surprises come in twos!
When Dr. Matteo Torres invites nurse Harriet Monticello to work with orphans in Buenos Aires, her head says yes! It's something she's always wanted to do…although her heart is wary of the irresistible off-limits doc. Shy Harriet isn't used to taking anything for herself, and yet before they board the plane for Argentina, the chemistry between them combusts and they give in to just one night together…
But their night of recklessness isn't without consequences. And now Harriet has nine months to melt this brooding doctor's heart!
