Thank You

I just wanted to drop in and thank everyone for their encouraging comments on my IWSG meltdown post last week. I am doing so much better, and I knew I could count on my fellow bloggers to lift me up.

I'm no longer wallowing in self pity. In fact, not only did I get my writing mojo back, but a couple of days ago I wrote a scene that has become my most favorite scene I have ever written in any of my books. No kidding. I've reread it over and over again so many times it's embarrassing.

Isn't it amazing how fast we can go from the lowest low to the highest high just like that? Thanks for sticking with me in the ups and downs. *hugs*

What are you all up to this week?

You're welcome and congrats on the awesome scene. I have my cover reveal today! So excited!

Great to hear you are back on a high.
Funny how there's always one scene where we think we've nailed it. Mine's in my upcoming book and I tried not to read it too many times and spoil its awesomeness.

Glad to hear things are going better! Isn't amazing how different everything feels when the writing is flowing? :)

I love it when writers are honest on their blogs. I'm glad we could all be here for you and help you when you were down. You certainly do that for the rest of us! And I love that Coldplay song so much. Can't wait for Catching Fire!!

About your favorite scene you wrote: Cool deal. I love those moments of absolute inspiration where the words just flow out into a deliciously perfect scene!

What I'm up to: Trying to figure out how to get cheap actors for my book trailer. I don't think the students at nearby schools look at the bulletin boards at all! All part of the planning for book publication...fun.
