Apparantly winter makes me feel the need to hibernate. Since the big snow fell weeks ago I haven't gone anywhere. Haven't really done much of anything. I've barely even turned on my computer.

There's something peaceful about being surrounded by snow. Having nowhere to go. Cooking on the woodstove. Adding wood to the fire. Making paths in the snow.

It's quiet save for when the kids get cabin fever. But it's okay, they can go out and go sledding. Or shovel. Or make forts.

I will have to get some writing done soon. I can't let the snow totally take over my life and lull me into a state of total whiteout bliss. Today I am making a start. I am starting to come out of hibernation.


  1. So, how's the hibernation going?


  2. You make it sound lovely - but are there no times when you feel close to Jack Nicholson's character in The Shining? Enjoy!

    Isn't AuthorsNow! super?!

  3. Ack! I actually met a guy that works at the hotel where they filmed The Shining. Don't think I'll be going to visit anytime soon. I won't watch or read anything scary. There is probably a connection.

    And yes, I love AuthorsNow! Yet I find myself wanting to call it author snow. :-)
