When the sap runs I change
Don’t know why
Maybe, it’s an earthy
spring cleaning obsession
a butterfly wing
in the wind.
When the sap runs
I roll up the sleeves
In this case, my husband PJs.
He put in a new pendant light in my writing loft that adds a warm glow to the space, and hooks on the wall to mount a white board beside my desk. I love the changes.
Currently, I have my Nederlander Series board mounted (i.e., pic on the right). It’s my half mowed lawn. I can see how far I’ve gotten, and how far I’ve got to go in the six story Romantic Suspense saga about a family that fights international art crime. I check on the interaction of characters, and plot lines and most importantly revisit the premises I’m working with.
I know a light and a board may not sound like big changes, but in my writing space/world they’re huge. Thanks PJ. I’ll make strawberry pavlova to celebrate with lots of whip cream.
The other two changes I made this week are:
1. the color of the blog (from pink to blue) just for fun, and
2. the wording of my tagline. I figure if you want to know what I write you can read my website, so I ditched the line about writing dangerous love stories. What I need for a “hook” here is a descriptor of what my blog is about. After more than a year of writing it, I decided on a warning: “Caution – This blog may contain uncensored opinion, wacky observations and the occasional goose.” I could have said moose, but I thought goose was better. I think the line sums it up. What do you think?
Spring is a time of change. I hope you enjoy yours as much as I’m enjoying mine.
