It was never my intention to slight you here, and I promise to soon post with greater frequency. I'm about to launch myself back into more fiction writing, beginning with a graduate course on Writing Romance that's being taught through McDaniel College by the incomparable Jennifer Crusie and Dr. Pamela Regis. Ideas, characters and scenes for a new book are bubbling in my brain. It's exciting!
Life has really been terrific for the last seven months, not that it was bad before! I feel great and my spirit is invigorated.
I just returned from my annual vacation to Cape Cod where I had a wonderful time with family and friends. I also took a whale watching trip out of Barnstable Village to Stellwagon Bank. We saw at least a dozen humpback whales, including a mother and calf, as well as two minke whales. I was able to get some cool photos and a couple of videos. Since the last time I posted I showed you dolphin shots from the Keys, I think sharing whale pics today is in order!
