Filling The Well (Tara Taylor Quinn)
I've already got an idea in for more Heartwarming books. I loved this experience. It's different from my other work in some ways. Not different at all in others - in the ways that matter to me. The intensity, the heart and soul, that pour into ttq books is all there. Just some of the 'gritty' is gone.
And I learned something over the past few months. Or was reminded of it again. By my own example. I had books to write. I wrote them. Period. I have more books due this year - two of them by September. And they will be done. Because if you put your mind to something, really put your mind to it, it happens. I finished the last book and was drained almost to the point of being emotionally comatose. And yet, felt strengthened, too. I walked outside and I saw those two places where I had underground irrigation that was capped off. I thought of the rose bushes that I wanted there. And I knew that I could make them happen. I just had to put my mind and energy to them. And, as life often works, when you do all that you can do, fate steps in and gives a hand. I didn't have a lot of time. I found exactly what I wanted in the first place I looked. And paid less than $20 for both bushes - not a piece. A miracle. A small one, yes, but for me, significant.
I have a synopsis due to my agent. And three chapters on a Superromance due next week. I step outside. Smell my rose. And I am ready...
How about all of you? What fills your well? Maybe if we share, our collective energies will multiply for all of us!
