It’s not like I have a shortage of things to write about – it’s more a matter of having enough spare time!

I happened upon this piece at a local book store while I was ooh-ing and aaah-ing and pawing at the journals. It grabbed my attention.  I leafed through its pages and chuckled at some of the writing prompts.   I acted on impulse and bought it – along with a few journals, of course.

The purchase decision may have been influenced by a subconscious response to a recent question from a writing friend.  This lovely person is reading my novel and complimented me on it so far (yay!) and asked me what else I am working on.

Hmmm.  Not much except the occasional deep blonde observation on life, lifestyles and other people’s children’s social behaviour.  Other than that, I haven’t written anything worth the time and tears it takes to share via traditional publishing.

If ever I run out of ideas, I know where to turn. Apparently, they have another book out already titled “712 MORE things to write about”.  Goodness gracious!

If you’re looking for some bittersweet Canadian fiction, you can get a taste by downloading a sample of The Year of the Rabbit ebook from Smashwords.  Hop on over to the Facebook page and give it a like.  If you happen to read the entire book, please submit a wee review or add to the readers’ comments.  Flo will be tickled pink.

Thanks for dropping by.
