In the quiet

Sort of. We arrived this afternoon. The mountains are so pretty in the spring. And it's so quiet here. Stand outside and listen and guess what's missing? Traffic. No street noise. The only thing you'll hear is the gentle bubble of the stream near the house.

Of course all this is blown to smithereens when kids burst out the door, but still, for a moment, there is silence. And it's nice.

The drive took 7 hours. Bleh. But, I had the most AMAZING idea for a book. I couldn't write it down since I get car sick from reading and writing while in the car. (It kills me all that lost working time . . . there I am in the car, nothing to do, and I can't write. Gah.) But anyway, I've written my thoughts down and will save this one for another time.

I'm hoping to get much of my revisions on Book 2 done this week and next. Then, I'll break for copy edits to Book 1. And once Book 2 is turned in, I'll finish up the last chapters on Le Super Secret YA project. I like staying busy. ;-)

You should enjoy every minute of the silence. :)

Me an Mr. Right are going to take a mini vacation next week. We're going to the Texas Hill Country for the annual wine trail..it's going to be fun and I can indulge at all the Texas wineries. Someday, I'll take a real vacation to a tropical island, but for now...I'm happy that I'll be able to escape for a bit of R&R.
