Late Blooming Writers In Action

My Writing Space

My Writing Space

2014 WIP Blog Tour

I was inducted (abducted, lassoed, hoodwinked, invoked, sideswiped, challenged, and above all honored) by my blogging friend and ever-present source of inspiration, Laurie Buchanan, into the 2014 Work in Progress (WIP) Blog Tour. Of course I was humbled to be noticed, let alone invited to share a glimpse into my behind the scene writing endeavors.  It was an act of faith on her part to even assume I had any “work in progress”, but the biggest problem with my writing is that at any given moment I have “works in progress”…many…dozens…lost somewhere on my computer by next week. My challenge very quickly became finding one worth sharing!

Here are the rules:

1. Link back to the post of the person who tagged you  (check – Thank you, Laurie!)

2. Write a blurb about — and type the first sentence of — your next book’s first three chapters. (Yikes!)

3. Tag four other writers to do the same. (Can’t wait!)

So….here’s what’s going on in my world and my nominees.


CONNECT with other Late Blooming Writers on Facebook. Join the Aging Abundantly Writers Meet Up where you can chat in a closed group with other writers struggling with the same issues that you may be facing. Share thoughts, ideas, encouragement and recent posts.

    I find writers’ spaces endlessly fascinating. Yours looks comfortable and inspirational. Is that your muse in the photograph?

    Yes, I would definitely define myself as a late-blooming author too. But we’re “in action” – right?

    Pictures of my boys, a green smiling Buddha that my youngest gave me on Mother’s Day – he has one too – something to connect us while we’re 1,000 miles apart; a painting of Lady Slippers that reminds me of playing in the Maine woods as a kid, a painting of someone who reminds me of my soul that I’ve carried with me since college. These are the things that someone ground me – and nature outside of my window. Though I have to say I migrate when I write and don’t always write at my desk – I tend to follow the sun! And yes, Marian, we’re totally in action and I’m certainly glad you are!
