Without further ado, let’s hear from Ms. Harte!
The Blessing of Time
I think for a lot of folks this has been a hard year. I did a “week of gratitude” listing things I was thankful for before Thanksgiving and a few times I had to stop myself from saying “I’m glad about x even though…” It actually helped to focus on only the good.
So in keeping with what I am positively thankful for and since I need to promote my story—I’m thankful I managed to write Until Further Notice. It’s not just yay, I finished a book! It’s always good to finish a book and feel good about how it went but I’m particularly glad because I thought this one would never finish. I struggle a bit more to write nowadays and there were times I left this alone for months. But I came back to it each time and kept going again.
I’m also thankful because the start of the book haunted me for years. What was this man going to do once he was back in the dusty Texas town? I didn’t know. But I had written it and spent a long time wondering what happened next. Boom! Then I knew. For a bit. Then I stopped again. And each time I went back, it was as if I’d spent time writing it in my head and the story was there, waiting for me to continue. Of course each character in the ménage wanted to be sure I gave them their proper due and that took thought. And apparently time.
So I’m even grateful for the amount of time it took and that I found the time to give my story.
May you have many things to be thankful for this season, this year and every year!
