I love this time of year. Making plans, goals, strategies to meet them, it’s all fun for me. Or at least until someone pokes their eye out. I go until I burn out. One more post. One more blog. One more chapter. One more chore. Last year I wrote four manuscripts from scratch (not counting short stories), finished one I’d started a few years ago, and started a brand new romance.
This year I made a resolution that one day a week I’d stop. Not run from chore to chore. Take time to watch a movie or read a book. Maybe even take a nap. As I write this, I’m on my first rest day for 2014. And I’m writing this blog.
Not a great start. But in my defense, I had two days where I didn’t write a word this week. Another reason I don’t feel like I’m breaking my vow, is because I want to write this. Maybe I’m justifying, but I don’t feel pressured (mostly because this post is set for two weeks from now.)
I’ve already watched a movie today (Admission – LOVED it) and will curl up with a Robyn Carr book in a few minutes, returning to my day of recreation.
What do you do to re-fill the well?
Lauren is headed back to school, this time not as a fun loving coed but to achieve her dream of turning the family farm into Idaho’s first Heritage Seed Center. Selling organic produce at the local farmers market, she meets Miles. After an unexpected act of kindness toward her daughter, Lauren agrees to one date.
As a VP and heir apparent to HN Seeds, the family business, Miles unknowingly holds the future of Lauren’s farm in his hands. Lauren’s looking for anything but a romance. She’s got too much on her plate to risk the distraction. But he plays the one card Lauren can’t resist, family. Miles needs Lauren and her daughter to feel at home. And Lauren needs Miles and his large extended family more than she knows. But can she forgive the one betrayal that would ruin all of her plans for the future?
