A To Do List, really

to doI’ve often wondered why I never get to the end of my to do list.  Today I finally got it, because it’s a to do list, not a done list, or a never mean to do list, but a to do list, and the items that you don’t get accomplished just get transferred to the next to do list.

I’ve noticed that the ones that get left over from the list the day before, are also the ones that don’t get done today or tomorrow.  There’s a message there.  So tomorrow i’m putting the ones still to be done tonight at the top of tomorrow’s list. Think I can make it work?

For example, this blog.  I have three novels and a novella coming out from now through September.  Just thinking about it amazes me.  I’ve been doing edits, copyedits, proof reading as well as beginning next years books.   (May the force be with me  . . .and you too.) I’ve written blogs for other people, but I forgot about my own.

But I’m still here and this year’s novels will be here soon.

Whisper Beach

Whisper Beach

My beach book comes out first.  It’s sort of a Big Chill -2015 Jersey Shore Edition story. Four childhood friends , well actually three friends and the other girl who sometimes hung out with them, come back as adults to attend a funeral.  Things have changed . . .or have they?  Maybe they are finally experiencing all the things about friendship that they never understood before.  But can they trust it?  Or each other?

It’s a theme I like to explore,  the meaning of friendship and trust and how far love can bend before it breaks.

What about friendship interests you most?
