Hello and thanks for joining us. We really appreciate it! This week’s challenge comes from the wonderful A.S. Fenichel:
Two weeks into the New Year…tell me the good, the bad and the ugly. How were your holidays?
This year has definitely been interesting. First, I have to say I am always happy when the holidays are over. I find them incredibly stressful and I like the status quo.
But this year was more stressful then most. On Christmas Eve, members of Romance Writers of America were notified that Courtney Milan had been censured for having an opinion. This decision was immediately reversed, but the damage was done. The rest of the holiday was spent reading and writing emails. Alternating between fury, rage, sadness and—did I mention rage? And watching RWA virtually self-destruct (and rightfully so) because so many terrible things happened within the organization. (Too numerous to list).
Like many of my fellow writers, I seek refuge in books, both reading and writing. I have completed about half of my latest WIP (a romantic suspense) and I will keep going. As for RWA – well, I don’t know.
In the meantime, you should check this out from Brenda Margriet:
MOUNTAIN FIRE, a romantic suspense set in Northern British Columbia, is 99 cents until January 15th only. Available at all e-retailers for a limited time.
A mountaintop mystery leads two conservationists to dangerous obsessions and violent passions.
Now let’s hop over to Brenda and hear about her first two weeks in the year…
