My fav flower? Purple petunias. I plant them EVERYWHERE--flower boxes, pots, hanging planters. They are so gorgeous, grow as fast as weeds, and smell wonderful.
So, guess what I did on Saturday? Yep! Purple petunias galore!
Gardening for me, like running, is a great time to let my mind go a little blank--or maybe I should say relax for a little bit. It's quite therapeutic and it helped me to gather my thoughts around two books I'm trying to write. I was so relaxed, in fact, that I decided that beginning this week, I was only going to focus on one of them. Trying to write two books at once has not been working out for me the last two months. My weekly word counts have been depressingly low. I don't know how authors like James Patterson do it. I think that guy works on about 12 novels at once. The man is a machine! Anyway, I'm going to focus on my young adult novel till the end of December. Then I'll begin the rewrite of another contemporary romance in January that I absolutely love, love love!
This is going to be a busy week here at the O.K. Corral! I'm also going to be doing a little guest blogging on Tuesday and Friday and hopefully I'll finally be able to share with you my super seekret news that I've been teasing about the last couple of weeks! :-)
