I FEEL like a romance writer

I got new clothes. Jeans. Small jeans. Sexy jeans.
And a bunch of other stuff too.
I look and feel great. DH took one look and said WOW. That’s all. One word.
And that’s all he needed to say. 🙂
My friend Claire gave them to me. She just lost a ton of weight and wanted the clothes too big for her out of her closet. I am SOOOOO thankful.
It’s expensive losing weigh and I already spent my budget on this size. Now I won’t have to buy again for a long time!

It’s amazing how feeling good makes me WANT to write. I didn’t even realize it affected my ability to create characters, but it definitely does. In fact, the more I think about it, the more I realize how important feeling good is to writing. I’m more awake now. I can breathe. I don’t groan when I look in the mirror. I can actually wear the shoes my heroines want to wear. 🙂 It’s awesome. Incredible. Wonderful.

Almost as amazing as the brainstorming session I took part of last night on Gonna-Beez. I stumbled across the group on e-Harlequin and joined on a whim. Good timing. They’d just gone through a revamping of their board and list. Last night’s brainstorming session was wonderful. They call plotting “in the hot seat.” The person accepts ideas or says no, that won’t work. The big thing is there’s an abundance of ideas and people just toss ideas out there. It was great. I can’t wait to be in the hot seat. 🙂
