Yesterday was my father’s birthday, so my walk included many wonderful memories of him. He’s been watching over me from heaven for over twenty-two years, and though the ache of missing him has ebbed and flowed, it’s always more intense on special days…
Pelicans glide overhead, circling, floating, and I feel peace wash over me. Is it my dad’s way of confirming he is near? A signal that he knows I’m thinking of him and wishing him a happy day?
He had so many wonderful qualities that I’ve tried to incorporate them into my characters. Writing Passion’s Promise is no different. I will infuse his integrity, the generous heart he shared with others, his wisdom through Spencer, Nick and Uri. Yes, Uri is visiting with us again. So are Kyle and Big. I have a few other characters from Passion’s Race and Passion’s Spirit making cameo appearances, and oh my, I just thought of an excellent twist to the plot.
I love when this happens. My mind is focused on today’s writing plan and BAM a new scenario pops into my thoughts. A surprise I hope you, my readers, will enjoy! The thread is twining in my brain and excitement shoots through me. The colors, the emotions, the rhythm of the story blend to form another sub-plot to deepen the overall story and to tie up some loose ends from my previous books.
I won’t give anything away, but I must get back to my computer to get these images written. They are spinning so quickly that I can’t risk missing the rich details of each sentence, each scene, each movement to paint the whole.
Okay, my walk just turned into a run… So, until next time.
Hugs – Christine
