Getting Prepared…


It’s a beautiful Saturday morning…and…Bertha…is chomping at the bit…hmmm…I have to wonder…is she chomping at the bit…because she is such an old…nag

Okay…now she’s threatening me…to get on with the blog…before she shows me what a…nag…she can really be…

So…what has her so excited this morning…well…it’s the first truly beautiful spring day we’ve had…that I’ve been home…and…it’s perfect for a bike ride…

We haven’t been on one in a while…so I have to admit…I’m excited as well…I’m hopeful that my gym workouts are going to translate into strong riding legs…it will be fun to find out if they are actually making a difference…

But…Bertha…reminds me…before I can ride…there are things that need to be done…locate the water bottles from last summer…pack a snack…put on those lovely padded shorts and a brightly visible shirt…and…last but not least…pump up the tires that are essentially flat from sitting in the garage for months…tire pumping being the most challenging of my preparations…but…a great triceps workout

Of course…she relates this preparation to my life…this morning…it is to my writing in particular…as she reminds me…that there is preparation to be done…before my next book will be released…ahhh…she’s talking about…edits…that’s what I’m waiting on…edits from the publisher…

Maybe this means that they are coming soon…I hope so…although…I must admit…the editing process can be painful for me…my words are like my babies…and having them critiqued…cutting some of them out…rearranging them…can become a very personal process…but…it’s one that always makes a better book…so…bring on the edits…

But…not until after this bike ride…

    • Thank you, Bea. It was a wonderful ride…quite a head wind…but that’s March…coming in like a lion! Hmmm…does this mean you have a book in the works? I certainly hope so…I’d love to read it. Oh…and…Bertha says there’s more than enough for all of us!
