In other news, spring definitely seems to be just around the corner. The robins and redwing blackbirds have returned. Heck, the barn swallows are showing up, and they normally don’t return until mid-April. The animals are shedding in great tumbleweeds of hair. The daffodils are blooming–it won’t be long before the forsythia and redbud is next.
Every year about this time, I get the mad urge to plant things. It only lasts for about three weeks, so unless I plant something hardy that can take care of itself, my planting exploits tend to be short-lived. There is something so right, so natural about grubbing around in the dirt in the early spring, however. You can almost see things coming to life before your eyes.
I’m going to resist the urge to give in to my semi-green thumb this year, however. In fact, I’m going to go dark (or at least as dark as I possibly can, given my internet addiction) for the next couple of weeks. I have some major presentations due at work. I have a novel to finish and get to the editors, and plans to work on the next one (okay, two, no wait–three!) with my good friend, Claire Russett (who’s one of the authors in the free giveaway with Dreamspinner today!). I have a romantic weekend getaway planned as well. I do NOT need the distraction of half a dozen new story ideas popping into my head right now.
I think it must have something to do with Spring. Stories, like flowers, seem to have found fertile ground in my brain after a winter of somnolence. I love it when that happens–except when I already have too many stories on the boards! For now, I can only jot some notes down and hope the ideas will keep until I have time for them. But yay for Spring!
