She remarried, had a child (my mother) with her 2nd husband and husband number 1 showed up! I didn't learn about this until I was in my mid30s. My mother died when I was 21. My grandmother died when I was a baby.(less)

I like so many. So I'll go with one of my early favorites: Linda Martin and Raoul Valmy from Nine Coaches Waiting by Mary Stewart. She is very alone--no family. Hired to be a governess to 9-year-old Philippe, she's so desperate to be back in France that she hides from her new employer that she is half French. After a tough day, when Raoul sets out to charm this lonely girl, how can she not fall in love? She thinks he's privileged but finds out how much they actually have in common after all. I love that the author shows with this couple how vulnerable we are when we fall in love--how vulnerable we must be.(less)

Picture Guest Post by Cindy Ervin Huff

There are a few interesting factoids I’ve learned while writing and researching my stories. I’ll share a few things about setting that I found both interesting and surprising.

I am directionally challenged. If you tell me go west, then turn south my eyes roll back in my head. I need landmarks and left/right directions, and even then it can be iffy. Writing a novel... Read more of this blog post »

Shonda Rhimes
“Writing is the hum. Writing is laying track. Writing is the high. Now imagine that hum, that high, that track to be laid is behind a door. And that door is five miles away. Those five miles are just . . . writing crap and doodling and trying to have an idea and surfing the internet and hoping like hell not to get so distracted that you give up. Worse? Those five miles are lined with brownies and cupcakes and episodes of Game of Thrones and Idris Elba waiting to talk to only you and really good novels to read. Every time I sit down to write, I have to mentally run those five miles past all of that to get to that door. It’s a long, hard five-mile run. Sometimes I am almost dead by the time I reach the door. That’s why I have to keep doing it. The more often I run the five miles, the fitter I become. And the fitter I become, the easier the run begins to feel and the less fresh and exciting all that stuff on the side of the road seems. I mean, how long has it been there? More important, as I get fitter, I can run faster. And the faster I can run, the faster I can get to that door. The faster you can too, writers out there. When you sit down to write every day, it becomes easier and easier to tap into that creative space inside your mind. The faster I can get to that door, the quicker I can get to the good stuff.”
