It’s been a crazy summer for Robin. She’s done some traveling and will be doing more traveling in the coming months. But mostly she’s been trying to “wrestle a book to the ground.” She says writing is like that sometimes. Like a good old fashioned wrestling match. (Whatever that is.)
I like Robin’s office so it’s okay with me that she spends lots of hours there. It’s cozy. I’ve got a favorite spot to curl up in there. I like the way it smells, too. She has one of those warmers and puts drops of Mexican Vanilla oil in it. Mmm, mmm, mmm.
Anyway, I digress.
Have I mentioned that writers seem to do a lot of talking to themselves or to their computer screens. At least my favorite human does. Sometimes she speaks as if there were someone else in the room (besides all important moi). Other times she mumbles beneath her breath. Of course, I like it best when she talks to me and tells me what a good girl I am. That makes me perk up and wiggle my tail.
Sometimes my human gets discouraged. Does that ever happen to you? I could tell she was sort of feeling that way for a number of reasons, when this note popped up on her Facebook Author Page.
I’ve never been a reader, Robin, but since I have come across your books, I cannot be without a new one to read. Just finished The Heart’s Pursuit and just loved it. I think it was the 6th book I have read this summer. I have one more on hand, and then I get to pick another. Thank you so much for bringing such pleasure to so many. God Bless.
Boy, did that ever make my human smile! She says she’s grateful to God for sending those words of encouragement through readers every now and then. She’s kind of like me, I guess. Just a few kind words makes her perk up and wiggle her tail. Okay, she doesn’t have a tail, but I think she would look good with one.
Well, I’m getting tired of balancing these red glasses on my nose, so I guess that’s the end of my report from Idaho. Take care and I’ll see you next time I get to guest post for my favorite human.
