When I decided to start this blog I knew I was going to have trouble getting something written every day or so because my writing schedule is so heavy--however I didn't realize exactly how hard it would be! But here I am over a month later finally making my 3rd entry. I'm going to make another one right after this one about my new book! But anyway, I went on vacation for a week, took a revision with me to work on, but still enjoyed Arizona. I've always wanted to go and so I loaded up my little Tbird and hit the road. I was meeting my parents in Sedona. I was going to blog about it but now all this time later it seems a bit late. Still I had an adventure I chased hot air balloons in Albuquerque New Mexico, went to a wonderful farmers market and had the best apples I've ever tasted in my entire life! They're name is No Name Apples from some little farm there in Albuquerque. After I headed out from there I saw a pumpkin chunking competition as I flew by in my car (which gave me a great idea for an upcoming book in Mule Hollow!!! That's why I love road trips, after being holed up with nothing but me and my computer for months on end as I write my books my brain needs the stimulation that fresh air and new sights give it...road trips are just a natural part of my writing life) anyway so much happened on the trip that I can't possibly put it in the blog but I'll tell you this, you will read about much of it in up coming books. I'll also share some other stories and pictures later on if I can get to the store and develop them. All in all it was a great trip but I couldn't wait to get home and finish work on the revsion I was busy with and then get proposals done for the books I'll write in 2008 (they'll come out in 09) all the books for 08 are already written!
