Head Explodes

Angry, Frustrated WomanYep. Some days I feel my head will explode from all that I have to do and remember. I’m sure you’re the same way. So much information is thrown our way each day. Heck! Each second! I think all the information we receive in some ways makes us aware but not really smarter. So we have to decide what is important and what isn’t. So over the years I’ve narrowed down what I watch and read.

I’m looking forward to retiring from my day job. Then I can empty my head of all the useless (will be after I leave) information and make room for what I love. Reading and writing romance. Improving my craft, learning new ways to promote my books (if you don’t know they exist, how would you know to read them?), and so many interesting facets to being a published author.

One of my big drawbacks is my self-confidence. I believe a lot of authors have that problem. So something I read today I have to share with you. It got me to thinking. (HA!)

From Wizard of Oz
Wizard: Not having fear isn’t brave, it’s foolhardy. Any real hero knows fear.
Cowardly Lion: I’ll tell you one thing though, so does a real coward.
Wizard: The difference is a hero masters his fear.

So here’s to mastering my fears.

Happy July the 4th! Independence Day!

I love reading about history, and when it came to romances, I use to read mostly Medieval and Western romances.  Since most historical romances nowadays are set in the Regency Period, I find myself reading romantic comedies and occasionally paranormal romances.  Yeah, yeah, I know it’s strange that I rarely read romantic suspense. It’s because I’m not much for reading about serial killers or police procedural types and those appear to be the favorites published.  This is also the reason I write the type of RS I prefer. Strong men and women trying to make the world a better place on their own terms.

Anyway, I got off track from what I was going to tell you. On the Romance Magician’s blog, I’ve posted a series of ‘history tidbits’ that I use to publish in my writers’ group’s newsletter.  Check this out.  You might find them interesting.

Don’t eat too many hot dogs today!

Romance Magician Blog: Aww! Romance!

I forgot to mention that I blogged February 1 at Romance Magician.

We all have our own buttons when it comes to what we think is romantic. Maybe a slow kiss. Or the way a hero looks into his heroine’s eyes. It even can be a whispered sweet word… click here to read the whole thing.
