It’s a big deal for us in western Washington. We don’t get much snow here in the lowlands by Puget Sound, so six inches of snow is a treat. It will all be gone soon enough, so I plan on enjoying it while it lasts.
Hmmm, that gives me a thought . . .

THOUGHT OF THE DAY
Take that quote and think of it in the context of the talents you’ve been given as a writer.
I’ve read your work and yes, you have talents.
Are you wasting it?
Like the snow we just received, life is limited. It will be gone soon. Believe me, I’m painfully aware of that fact. I still remember, clearly, much of my childhood and teen years, and I’m absolutely shocked that I am now sixty-eight with only what, ten years, fifteen, left to live? How in the hell did that happen? But happen it did, and the question now is how am I going to live those remaining fifteen years? How much of that time do I plan on wasting? How much of my remaining talent do I plan on wasting?
It’s a question we all should ask.
We’ve been given a gift, my friends. Very few in the world have the talent to take random words and unite them in such a way that they create a story, or a poem. And a very, very few have the talent to write those words in such a way that they elicit emotions from the readers.
Don’t waste that talent!
THAT’S ALL I’VE GOT FOR YOU TODAY
Stop reading this and write. It’s what you do as a writer.
And please support one another. Share the work of others. Give words of encouragement. Keep the light burning for all writers.
For those who asked, I’m still devoting my time to coloring books, so the novels are still on hold. Such is life!
