Well I just stepped back into my toasty condo after two weeks in springtime. South and Central Florida was a dream, but now I have woken up in the Ides of March and six inches of newly fallen snow.
I amazes me that only six short hours ago I was walking on a sandy beach in Fort Lauderdale at 85 degrees with the coconut palms swaying. Now stepping off the bus a sharp, frigid wind stung my eyes and checks at seventeen degrees. SO ironic isn't it?
My insecurities about my sight were explosive... what if...? You get the picture. Thankfully I was checked yesterday and all seem fine for now. I still need to pray and keep positive that the cells won't grow back. It's still too early to tell. So I'm not out of the danger zone yet.
Sadly my writing and blogging time must be minimal. Taxing my eyes now would not be a good thing. I am still hoping to do A-Z, but I decided to give myself at least another week before I commit to it. I KNOW you all understand. My hearts says YES!YES!YES! But my eyes are singing a different tune altogether. SO with high hopes, I'll be asking for submissions next week.
These past few months also plagued me with a MAJOR rewrite of my second novel. I pounded away at it for over two months and now I am finally on the last TWEAK... At least I hope so. Waiting for my editor to send me back the last fifty or so pages. It was taxing for sure, but I'm surprised how much I like he newer version.
So THAT insecurity is laid to rest. March/April will be a very stressful month for me. This will be the first March/April in four years that I haven't spent in Florida. I know the rain and very chilly weather here in Chicago will get to me. I've always hated March even when I kid growing up in New York City.
But I WILL remember on those specific days the warm sunshine kissing my face as the birds chipped merrily in swaying palm trees.
