I've been absent for a while, it seems. I've been on and off, working on random reviews, but I haven't had a whole lot of time lately. However, I will be making more time for blogging in the near future. I'm feeling extra inspired right now with this incredible, unusual weather (for San Diego at least). It's my favorite weather ever, rainy, cloudly, cold....with lots of opportunities to curl up on the couch and read or write.
It reminds me of picking up Brisingr, digging my sock-covered toes deeper into the blankets to warm them. It reminds me of grabbing a sweatshirt and zipping it up as I attach my flash drive to the computer, beginning to work earnestly and efficiently on the stories that the heat of summer drove me away from. At the moment, as I type, my fingers are stiff and are preparing to put up with the chilly air and a few months of cold, constant typing.
And my heart is fluttering. I know grand stories and terrific adventures and gripping love stories lie ahead. I know my own stories will grow tremendously, coming alive on the page as my fingers whirl (coldly) across the keyboard. My body feels it; my very bones are waiting for it.
And so fall has arrived...
