Happy Saint Patrick's Day!

I did wear some green today! I would have loved to find a four-leaf clover but I had no time to look for one. I did take a photo of my forsythia bush, which is always the first thing to bloom in my yard. It is like the first sign of spring and it's in full bloom now.

 What I did get done was my taxes. They are filed via Turbo Tax and have been accepted by the IRS. So, that is out of the way for this year. Yay!!!

The WIP is stalled. I've got to do a major overhaul of the upcoming scene and I will need some time to think through exactly how to play it out. Such is the problems that come up when you make major changes in a story. It has a ripple effect all the way through the book. My goal this week is to figure out how to rewrite the scene, outline it and hopefully get to write it next weekend.

Right now, I am having to recover from watching Walking Dead. This episode was even more suspenseful than last week. I'm eager to see how things are going to end up this season. The writers are doing a great job!  They know how to make you hold your breath!  A friend who sends me text messages during the show sent me one saying she was having chest pain. Me, too!  Every writer should strive to get such an emotional reaction to a story. I'll have to do a post on that someday.

I always hate this time of the week because tomorrow is Monday and I have to go to a job that pays the bills but is one of the most depressing places ever. I think if someone told me I never had to go back there, I would wail with complete joy.  Have you ever been stuck in a place like that?

Well, frankly my dear, it could be worse. That's what I tell myself every day and it does help!
