I must admit, I feel a bit guilty. I’m at the beach house and though it is a chilly 40 degrees, the sun is bright and the sky is a stunning crisp blue (same color as my hubby’s eyes). Not a cloud out there, the ocean swells create a gentle rhythmic rock as the palm trees rustle in the breeze. And in St. Louis – SNOW.

I spent the morning working on updates to my site, which should be posted in the next week or so. Feel free to check them out. Coordination of the February PRO-Class Bootcamp is well under way, stay tuned for an announcement of speaker(s) and content. It’s going to rock — thanks to Julie Rowe, our February Moderator.

As soon as I’m done here, I’m going for a run to enjoy the fresh sea air and to bask in the beautiful Florida weather. (Not rubbing it in if you’re in the arctic tundra, but) I’ll sweat without worry of icing over, and I’ll come home psyched and ready to polish a few more scenes in Mystical Connections.

So with that: Stay warm, stay safe and if necessary, close your eyes and imagine the sun’s warmth bathing you as you take in a deep cleansing breath. I did say I felt guilty, right?

Until next time, Hugs – Christine 


Expect Great Things!

“Expect Great Things” is my new mantra for 2009. It was on a soup mug I received for Christmas. It’s such a simple statement, but think of the impact. Dream big, aim high, what do you have to lose? If you don’t take that first step and try, you can’t accomplish. Right?

I’ve always been driven, but I’m throwing myself in with extra gusto because great things are coming. Another finished ms, more submissions, and maybe 2009 will be the year for me to catch someone’s attention and get that contract or two or three …

The Holidays are now behind us and after eighteen days off, the first real vacation in quite some time, I’m back at the keyboard. So, I enter 2009 with the following focuses: Love (family & friends), health, happiness, and seeing my books in print! Where are you journeying to this year?
