Temptations


I had the whole afternoon to myself today to work on my manuscript. I wanted to share with you the awesomeness that I managed to resist. One quick walk and then back inside to type. The good news, I'm now on chapter five and as a reward, I can take Catching Fire to bed!
Other news: I received an amazing email from someone who read my latest article, Frozen Turd Wars in Dogs in Canada. She took the time to write and tell me she laughed until she cried. That she couldn't wait for my book, Dogsled Dreams to come out. This complete stranger totally made my day! What a feeling!

Terry, you just discovered the real joy! Total strangers, readers & fans, who say your words touched their lives. It is so awesome!

And I couldn't have ignored that view...

That's great! I hope it's the first of many fan emails. :-)

Janet said...

That sounds great! Getting comments and emails from strangers about something you've written inspires a person to continue on with their writing.

Terry, isn't it wonderful when someone you don't know appreciates what you do. I was a radio DJ in college and a little girl came up to me and asked for my autograph.

PS...The photo is awesome!
