Good morning and welcome to Monday!
It snowed on Saturday and was cold and windy on Sunday, so most of the weekend was spent indoors. I did start some preliminary work for my next book yesterday, but it's hard to get started again after the Christmas holiday. And with it being so cold and snowy outside, I'd rather nap than work.
Still, I have the computer fired up this morning and am rereading a book and making notes for the next one. That's how I start when the book I'm working on is part of a series. I need to refamiliarize myself with what came before and what I've done with certain characters. Once I make notes (which in reality means a small mountain of file cards), I'll do whatever research I need to do. Then I'll think about the plot of the book. Once I know my opening scene, I'll begin writing. I hope to get to that stage before the end of the week.
With the wind chill, it's hovering around 0 degrees farenheit this morning. I can't seem to get warm. So, I'm going to pour myself a cup of tea, pull a blanket over my legs and keep working. Because spring will be here soon enough and I'm hoping to have several books written by then.
Have a great Monday!
