Rain, Rain, Go Away!

I can’t write fiction indoors anymore. I don’t know why, and I’d be interested to hear any theories on the subject; but the fact is that I just can’t get my mind into my fictional world of Obann if I’m sitting at a table, surrounded by walls, with the phone ringing (and it’s always a call I’d rather not receive–“Hi! This is Sheryl from Meshuggah Resorts, and our records show you had a wonderful time two years ago at our Sphagnum House Motel,” etc. All a load of ridiculous lies. So glad I got up to answer that!)

Just now the problem is that it’s been raining buckets for four days in a row, I haven’t been able to get back to work on my book, and I’m losing track of my hyenas. Now I hardly know where they’ll turn up next. And Jack and Martis have just had a very close call–I think that was last Wednesday. My momentum is not where I’d like it to be.

His Mercy Endureth Forever is, I reckon, nearly halfway finished. Oh, for a sunny day tomorrow!

Well, I’m writing this novel in the Lord’s service, and I’ll have to leave the weather up to Him.

  1. I know that I always feel closest to God when I am outside and can see his creation instead of man’s.

  2. When I am in the house it speaks to me of all the things I could be doing to clean and maintain it, not to mention the robocalls throughout the day (I signed up for the National Don’t Call List – what a joke).

    I have finished The Glass Bridge and really enjoyed the lust for gold stuff – it was gold 🙂 I will be composing a review on Amazon in the near future as well as ordering the next book in the series. I want to find out if King Ryon’s army makes it to the new temple location or not.

  3. That’s funny, Lee, I have the opposite problem. When I try to write outdoors I get too distracted by nature, as well as by the comings and goings of cars, neighbor kids, lawn mowers, etc. I get into my world best when everything around me is visually plain, and quiet. I really hope the rain stops for you soon!
