My dearest Readers,
I have to say that I couldn’t even begin to list all the things that make me go Hmm…. Because I come across Hmmm… moments every single day. Almost every single hour. It’s a curse. And I think it has something to do with me being a writer. I see a story behind everything and want an explanation for EVERYTHING. So when it makes me go Hmmm…either good or bad, I find myself needing to write. But I will try to pull together a list of my 5 most recent Hmmmms.
1.)Why do some people get that “look” when I tell them I write historical romance? Meaning the “oh…you-write-THAT” look. I want to whip out a copy of my book and start reading all the sex scenes OUT LOUD just to smack the look off their face.
2.)Why do all the schools close here in Oregon when it snows, even when it’s just a measly inch? I’m from Chicago people. I remember walking to school when snow was up to my chest and guess what? School was STILL open. Of course people in Oregon don’t know how to drive in the rain, either…
3.)Whatever happened to a kid asking for ONE thing from Santa? Sheesh. My kids asked for at least 25 things EACH from Santa this year. Commercialism sucks and Santa is going to have to explain to the kids that there was an elf strike.
4.)Why do I get my best ideas for writing when there’s no time to write? I love snow but…
5.)Why do people allow their 11 year old daughters to get their noses pierced? Seriously. My daughter’s best friend JUST had it done and well….I don’t get it. At all. It’s like letting a kid get a tattoo. On their nose.
Fortunately for you, I only limited myself to 5 Hmmms. And sadly, it appears they are more like rants than anything else…
Until next Time. Cheers and much love,
