Two years ago, when I flew to and from California, I finished the first draft of my novelette "Twelve Drummers Drumming." I also worked on the last draft of Hard Hats and Doormats, my debut novel.
Now both of those stories (along with another short and a novel) have been published. And during this series of flights, I worked on edits for a third novel and novella. There are other little differences from then and now.
But going from aspiring to published author in that time is a strange, lovely mix of insanity and amazement.
Isn't it amazing how much a person's world changes over time? It reminds me of a favorite line from Nora Roberts' Genuine Lies, "Don't you think it would be deadly boring to wake up every morning of your life as exactly the same person?"
I wonder who I'll wake up as tomorrow.
A couple of photos to share from my business trip for the day job...
Me with this adorable cat quilt on display at Spring Market. Look at the bespectacled kitten!
