I like to write at a table on my deck. When I'm searching for a thought, I have the habit of gazing around at my gardens that surround the property. These gardens help to instill peace into my soul. As I look at them, it is as if they are sending a message back to me that all is well with the world. Yes, all is well with THEM! I take good care of my gardens, which requires a lot of time on my part. My gardening time takes away from my writing. It is only for this reason that I somewhat welcome the winter season. This season gives me a lot of time to write because of the respite from gardening.
The completion of Native Hope is behind schedule! Yet, I don't want to panic and force the creative process. Good writing comes from a mind at peace. I'm looking forward to reentering my world in ancient Fiji.
