It’s just the middle of April and already, we’ve had a lot of storms. Like every Monday and Tuesday for the last three weeks. Some of those have been severe for some folks. We’ve missed the worst of it, but still you go through the steps to get prepared.
- Gather all the electronics and all their corresponding cords. (And there are a lot of them.)
2. Email the latest version of the WIP to myself. It’s backed up on Carbonite, but still I try to send the doc with the most words. Those are hard won words. I don’t want to chance losing any of them.
3. Then I gather all of Charley’s meds, food, leashes, bowls, etc. (He goes in the closet with us.)
4. Finally, I gather medicines and moisturizers. (You don’t think I look this good without a ton of help, do you? LOL)
As I get closer to the arrival of the storm, my stress level kicks up. I’d like to not have to do all the prep, but what if it gets us this time? You’ve seen the pics. People lose everything. The very lucky ones survive.
So yes, this is not my favorite time of the year. I’ve never written a book set during the spring. The current WIP may be the first. 🙂
I’m so grateful for the meteorologists and technology that keeps us informed and connected.
To turn to a happier subject. This is a time for many faiths to celebrate. Our Jewish friends have Passover, Muslims have Ramaden, and Christians Easter. I mentioned in my April Newsletter last week how cool I think it is that great faiths frequently share these holy days. I hope you have a blessed holiday; however, you celebrate.
Speaking of the April Newsletter, our winner of a e-copy of ACT OF BETRAYAL, Book 3 The Second Chances Series is Genie Rasprzak. Congratulations.
Next month there will be another GIVEAWAY in my Newsletter, and I’ll have another 99 Cent sale. Please stop by. If you’ve read any of my books, I hope you’ll leave a review. They are so important to spreading the news about an author’s books.
On Saturday, April 23, I hope you’ll come visit the Worth the Wait Facebook page. Authors who write seasoned romance will have giveaways and lot so fun to share with you. I’ll be there. Come see me and meet some new authors.
How do you celebrate the holidays? With family? Attending worship services? Or not at all?
Oh, my goodness. I can’t believe I forgot this. Monday night Bob and I got our 2nd Pfizer Booster! What a breeze. Not until Tuesday afternoon, did my arm get a bit stiff. Gotta keep it moving. And no other symptoms. Are you getting the next one?
As always, I’d love to hear from you.
