What with all this talk of chocolate…

Easter.  Passover.  Valentine’s Day.  Mother’s Day.  Oh yeah, April Fool’s Day, May Day… Didn’t ya’ll get those May Day baskets filled with wild flowers and chocolates?  We did when I was a kid.

Oh, not to forget my birthday and our anniversary in mid-April.  But that’s not why I’m thinking of chocolate.  I don’t even know why I’m thinking of chocolate.  Hmmm.  I guess it’s because chocolate protects against weird energy vibes while providing peace, harmony and increased endorphin levels.

I’m immersed in revisions and edits and imagining cover designs for the Daughters of Persephone series.  I want what I want and it’s not easy to find exactly what I want.  On the other hand, I get to be the decider.  And that, my friends, is very cool.

I know this sounds totally weird, but I want to see the movie, Salmon Fishing in the Yemen.  Nice segue, Julia…

That’s what I get for staying up late revising.  No beer and no TV make Homer something…something…

I’m about to…

have a beer?  (Gawd I could use one!)

Travel to Scottsdale to watch spring training?

Bake a batch of gooey triple chocolate brownies?

Nope.  I’m about to complete a short book of poetry.  How do you like those apples?  I did begin my writing career as a poet, so… but this is a stretch nonetheless.

I’m halfway through my revisions of the four-book Daughters of Persephone series, busy checking out cover art.

And then I’ll tackle my delicious contemporary Beauty and the Feast.  Can’t wait.  I’m going to try to create my own cover art for this one because I have a vision.

All right ladies and germs, this has been a crazy ass week, like a total emotional roller coaster ride.  Plus I dropped and broke an awful lot of glassware.  Like I said… emotional.

My grandmother always said, “When you drop a glass, you’ll hear from somebody.”  That’s not necessarily something I look forward to – makes me nervous.
