When I worked in Bloemfontein (South Africa) I stayed in my grandparents' house while they were on holiday. It was an old, spooky kind of house built on a hilltop and quite isolated from the neighbors. One day, I arrived at the garage to find my car hazard lights blinking, but both the car and garage were locked, so no one could have sneaked in to play a prank on me. My boyfriend at the time who was visiting was as baffled as I was. A few nights later, I was talking to a friend on the landline (this was before mobile phones, LOL) in my grandparents' bedroom when the power suddenly tripped. The whole big old three-story house was smothered in darkness. The wooden floorboards in the hallway creaked with approaching footsteps. My Maltese Poodle started yelping, and crawled under the bed. I asked my friend to call the police as I believed someone had broken into the house, and hung up so that she could make the call. The footsteps stopped on the threshold of the bedroom door, but didn't advance. When the police arrived, they found that the power had tripped in the main power box that was situated in the street, but there was no one in the house, and no signs of forced entry. I could have convinced myself that I imagined those footsteps, or that it was the natural sound of wood expanding in the heat of the day and shrinking in the cool of night, but then there was my dog's reaction. To this day, what really happened with the car hazard lights and the night the power tripped remains a mystery. Maybe I should work that into a gothic thriller romance plot. ;-)(less)

I simply carry on writing, every day, until a hit a high again. I often find that writing one good paragraph breaks the spell. It helps to maintain my routine, and when I'm back in writing shape I can always go back and fix those pages that need rewriting.(less)
