I’m still editing the second draft of my second thriller. Sigh. It’s slow going on sunny summer days with a strong sea breeze flowing freely between open windows, waves crashing over rocky shores and birds chirping. I spend so much time looking at sailboats circling small islands outside my window, even my villains are starting to go soft.

This will not do. I close the windows, pull my blinds and try to think dark thoughts. After all, I’ve promised myself to finish the rewrite this month.

It works until I see a pale tint of orange seeping in between the wooden blind slats in my room. This does me in. I close my laptop and go outside to marvel at a sunset more dramatic than I can possibly describe. Nanoose-sunset

    Yup, Paradise always wins! Yesterday a young buck was sleeping by our front window and two white doves stayed around all day to the pleasure and warm feelings of our guests.
    Your sunsets will take care of your soul – the writing will just happen because you are content.

    luv, Jacqui
