Crazy but true...

Hello gentle readers!

I'm so sorry that I didn't have a chance to update my blog last week. My copy edits for my April release came in and I was staggering under the sheer massiveness of going over 470 pages of edits and reworking a couple of scenes I'd not been happy with. The good news? No major rewrites. The better news? I have an idea for fixing a couple of scenes that will make it, I believe, a better book.

Whew. Writing is certainly not for the faint hearted.

Now, if I could just get the rest of my world to fall in line I might actually get some things accomplished this week. Oh, and it's a short week, too.

My kids are off for their fall break this week, which is both good and bad. We started out by going to see the new Harry Potter movie this weekend, my youngest daughter and I went twice. It was that good. I missed sleep to go see it, so you know it had to be.

I love the movies. The grand scale of even the smallest picture is amazing. Whether an epic like Lord of the Rings or an old flick like Casablanca, every one of them is an adventure.

Of course, a movie is something that you experience in an external way. You see it, but you know it's not part of you. Not really. Oh, we love to follow the story, see beautiful pictures and perfect actors on the screen, and yes, it is great fun.

Reading, on the other hand, is a more personal experience. You become the hero or heroine in a sense. You feel what they feel, you hear what they hear, and so on. That's what makes reading so cool. You can be and do so many things in your imagination that it a million lifetimes to experience in the flesh.

I feel extremely blessed to be able to tell a story. I think that has to be the one thing that keeps me at the keyboard. Poor writer that I am, there is nothing like getting the story out there, letting it grow and thrive, and become more than you thought possible. Yep. That's bliss.

I know I'm in the beginning of my writing career. I've been preparing for it for years, and yet each time I sit down, it become brand new again. I am the writer, yes, but I am also the child. I want to be amazed by the story unfolding before me just as much as my readers do.

When I did my very first book signing, a lady came up to my table who introduced herself as a pyschic. She said something a bit profound to me. She noted that I write about ghosts and she said that she believed that the heroes and heroines in our stories may be just that. Ghosts who come to us and bid us to tell of their existence.

I don't know if I believe that or not, but my characters do become real people to me. Anyone who writes fiction knows that. You start with an idea of someone and before you know it, a character grows out of it. I don't so much invent stories as much as provide the fertile ground for them to take root, to grow and become their own personalities. Throw in a bit of plotting and some cool scenery and they are off on their own adventure.

Whether they are ghosts or seeds of imagination, I'm very glad to have the chance to get to know them better. I hope my readers will enjoy the experience as well.

Now, I'd like to wish all of you celebrating this Thursday a wonderful Thanksgiving. Everyone else have a great week. Thanks for stopping by. Until next time, Happy Reading! Pam.
