Well – here I am back and still in one piece as I expected all along but you can never be sure of the after and continuing effects of internal suffering. Despite the circle of friends and family, it is who I am – one who enjoys the solitude and can live in the company of my own company. For a writer, this is a desirable quality – for someone dealing with the 6 month anniversary of a beloved’s death, it is or isn’t the best thing, depending upon the person. For me, my focus on my novel and a renewed effort to get it finished and published THIS year is the catalyst. Now, to explain, I have published 2 EBooks in the past 6 months and I have written 2 others through the 2009 and 2010 NaNoWriMo craziness – both in editing and review – however, my real baby needs to grow up and get a life. An Elizabethan Affair has been long held, personally admired, and very much loved WIP but it’s time to share it with the world. The significance of the year for release is one of magical proponents because of the cosmic relation to the years in the book – 1591, 1991 and 2013… as I discovered through a Google search, is of the common years beginning with January 1st on a Tuesday… I did plan some of the details in the book to fall upon the actual historical dates on record but imagine my surprise when checking the dates in the month to secure a believable time line! They were the very same in my present and past novel settings… that it matches with 2013 is totally freaky and just confirms the synchronicity of it all. By the way, if you haven’t gathered from the inference – it is a historical time travel romance 🙂
O mistress mine, where are you roaming?
O stay and hear! your true-love’s coming
That can sing both high and low;
Trip no further, pretty sweeting,
Journey’s end in lovers’ meeting–
Every wise man’s son doth know.
What is love? ’tis not hereafter;
Present mirth hath present laughter;
What’s to come is still unsure:
In delay there lies no plenty,–
Then come kiss me, Sweet and twenty,
Youth’s a stuff will not endure.
~ William Shakespeare
