Since moving to Newfoundland almost 9 years ago, I have come to accept the long cold winters. While the days are short and bitterly cold I like to spend my time on the computer. It’s during these months that I turn to one of my other passions, writing! All my books and short stories have been written during the dark days of January and February and even into March. I can remain focused when my backyard isn’t calling me. My imagination is a wild and wonderful thing and it almost never lets me down, winter or summer. I am driven to create, It’s not a choice, it’s a necessity. Although the time is not quite right for writing, it is approaching very quickly. My temporary employment comes to end in just over a week and it will leave me free to dream up new stories and enter more online contests. I do reasonably well in the contest circuits. I’m looking forward to the future and all the crazy creating my mind and hands are so itching to do. Everybody should be so lucky.
