“What is the activity that makes you lose all track of time?”
When I was at one of those “find your passion” workshops and the presenter asked this question, it was easy to answer.
When I’m writing, time stands still, here in the real world, because I’ve slipped out of it into another world of my own creation. And when I blink and emerge, I’m always surprised to find hours have passed. The light of day has become the smudge of twilight and the rumble I’m hearing and feeling is a gentle reminder it’s been a long time since lunch!
I’ve been writing for as long as I can remember. The novels I produced in high school and college will never see the light of day, but they were important training for those I have published, including the soon-to-be-released Thunder in the Night, a launch title for Crimson Romance. A romance with a mystery, a mystery with a romance, it’s all about the journey–to love, to truth, to The End.
What makes me lose all track of time? Building a story–one word at a time.
