TGIF, RG2E Peeps!
Welcome to The RG2E and/or Welcome Back!
It’s tough enough to stay sane during the holiday season. But when you’re an Author, it’s tough all year long! LOL! 🙂
Here’s RG2E Featured Author Laina Turner to tell you about her “crazy trip”…
I was talking to a friend about ideas for this blog post and he thought I should write about how to stay sane during the holidays. I was skeptical and told him I wasn’t sure I was the person who should be writing about staying sane at any time during the year. But it got me thinking. Don’t writers have to be somewhat crazy? I mean we sit around writing away putting down what the characters are doing in our head and often what’s in our head involves hot guys or murder. I often ask my children or significant other how a certain character died or should it be via knife or gun and should I add a kidnapping? Are those the thoughts of sane people? I think not.
Whether it’s the holidays or not I know I can get a little crazy and insane feeling. Stress of kids, life, and yes the stress of being an author is enough to send anyone over the edge but yet we continue to make it through each day. While difficult it’s the fun thing about life. We get to choose our level of insanity.
Comment and share how nuts you think you are and get a free copy of book 6 in the Presley Thurman Mysteries, Tiaras & Texans.
Presley wins a bet and thinks she finally is going to get a chance to work with Cooper and show her she’s got the potential to be a good security detail for his company. She is miffed when she finds out her first assignment is to protect a bunch of self-absorbed beauty queens at a Texas pageant. It soon becomes a more interesting gig than she thought, much to her delight and Cooper’s dismay, when one of the beauty queens turns up dead and the fierce competition leave the door wide open to suspects.
