Five things I thought about during my morning run:

1. You just have to hand to these old folks walking on the track. I hope I’m moving when I’m their age.

2. My knees and hips are sort of screaming at me. I’ve been running on the street because the weather has been so incredible. What a difference the track makes.

3. So, tomorrow I stay home and write ALL day. Yoga tomorrow night.

4. So many little things to take care of today when I all  I want to do is write. But maybe if I get them taken care of this morning I can sneak a bit of writing in.

5. So nice to see Christy this morning and chat a bit. I was telling her all about Bloodroot by Amy Greene. The way it speaks to me. The rhythm of the language. The regional dialect. Not exactly an easy book to read or get into. But I needed to take a break from all the genre fiction for awhile.

    I have Bloodroot and have tried to start it several times, but just can’t get into it. Perhaps I’ll try again.

    And just to ask–you may have posted this elsewhere, so sorry to repeat–what genre fiction have you enjoyed or found the most inspiring?

      Yes. It took me awhile to get into it. I’m about 79 pages in and really like it. It’s not really an easy read. But I think once you get into the the rhythm of it, it gets easier.
      As far as the genre fiction, I’m writing a sort of women’s fiction mystery series, and I love the mystery genre. I’m in awe of well-crafted historical fiction and historical romances. I love it when there’s a good cross-genre book, like “Mozart’s Blood,” which is a historical vampire book with a little romance and mystery. Very well done. How about you?

    I haven’t read much genre fiction, but I’ve been kicking a writing idea around for a while that would be mystery-esque, I guess. But because I like to procrastinate writing with research, I’ve been reading a bit here and there. I’ve read some Laura Lippmann, and that one book–the title escapes me but the main character is Flavia deLuce.
