Everywhere you turn there’s depressing news. For weeks or months the nation stood riveted on the edge of their seats, eyes glued to the television waiting to see if there would be justice for little Kaylee Anthony only to be let down. Yesterday I read where an 8 yr old boy was kidnapped, cut-up and disposed. WTF is wrong with people? Then there’s the lady who decided to dismember her husband. Those old enough will remember it’s not the first time an angry wife has done this. But seriously – why? So he doesn’t have sex with someone else? Does she feel better today?
Like Cindy talked about yesterday, gas prices make it difficult to do any traveling so what do you do? For me I take my ereader and escape into a world of fantasy. I’d rather believe in a hero and heroine falling madly in love after opening a door and seeing each other for a few mere minutes than read about what’s going on in the world.
I spent two months on hiatus – well my muse did. It seemed she wanted an extended vacation and nothing I did brought her home. Something tells me the evil little muse was at the beach without me.
This week I’m back. I’m writing and editing trying to finish my current wip. In this book I’ve escaped into a home improvement store where my heroine wins a kitchen makeover. She’s going to work side by side with the hot host of the show. They’re going to experiment with some home improvement tools you never imagined bringing into the bedroom and let’s just say the hero knows his way around a tool belt. It feels good to be absorbed in someone else’s life right now.
How about you? What do you do when the real world is just too depressing?
