At long last…it seems as though spring is on the horizon. We can (cautiously) begin putting away our down winter coats and emerge from hibernation. It’s amazing the effect the changing season has on all of us, even animals – there’s a reason they call it spring fever! Just looking around the farm you can see that all the creatures have a spring in their step. As the ground thaws we’re all getting over-stimulated by the sights and sounds reappearing before us.
And I’m no exception! It’s like as soon as the snow started to edge away my brain was flooded with new ideas and inspirations. And that’s when it becomes difficult to stay focussed. You see, I’m in the final stages of writing my latest book: editing. After several years of research and writing, you’d think the tough part was over – but you’d be wrong! Making changes to your book is actually one of the most difficult things you do as a writer, because your book is like your baby. And you’ve been in the labour process for a looooong time, so you want nothing more than to present it to the world! But you have to hold back – and that’s just no fun.
So while a million ideas are floating through my head on the spring breeze, I just have to keep reminding myself to keep my eyes on the prize. Because in the end, it’ll all be worth it to present to the world my new beautiful bouncing book!
