I'm Katie O'Connor and I am, among other things, a writer of romance and erotica. I live in the Great White North, Canada.
I love playing with words. I blog about any thing and everything that pops into my head.
Someday I want to publish a mixed genre novel. It is going to be an erotic, shape shifter, vampire, steampunk, sci-fi, murder mystery, adventure, romantic, western, historical thriller. It will be my biography.
Warning: On occasion I post things of an adult nature.
Yesterday, I posted about the problems with being a
writer. The biggest problem being, that you actually have to write and that
isn’t always easy. I’ll admit, I was having an off day … the words wouldn’t
come for love nor money. Rather than step away from the computer, I plugged
away at it and got nowhere.This
morning, I wrote for an hour and have already reached my minimum daily word count.
Go me. (Now I'm off to work for a couple hours and shall write more when I get home.)
Whoa! Wait! That isn’t where this post was supposed
The little things. I was going to talk about how
the little things can change your day around. How they can turn your day from
clouds to sunshine.
Have you ever had those days when you wake up just
itching for a fight? Every now and then I get up on the wrong side of the bed
and spend the day stalking around looking for someone to kill. (Metaphorically
speaking.) I think it must be the result of stress related dreams. A couple of
weeks ago, I was talking to a girlfriend about how grumpy I was. She invited me
over for tea and cookies to unwind. (Yes, food is the way to my heart.) When I
got there, she had popped out to the store and bought me flowers. Aw! How sweet
is it to have friends like that? It really did make my day better. Thanks K.
After I made my ranting post yesterday, the Spawn (as I call
my children) called me to cheer me up. I guess she was bored at work and was
surfing the web. Up to that point, I didn’t even know she read my blog, guess I
better watch what I write from now on. Anyway, she said, “Aw, you sounded sad and
grumpy in your post, so I called to cheer you up.” How sweet is that? Gotta
love my kids. Thanks W.
Last night, I was chatting with a friend. When I
told him I was grumpy and bitchy, he went out of his way to cheer me up and
make me smile. By the end of our conversation, I was feeling much better. What
a special treat when someone cares enough to take the time to make you smile. Thanks
It doesn’t take much to turn a bad day around or to
turn my frown upside-down. A couple kind words, a phone call, or maybe a kick in
the pants. Thanks to everyone who makes that effort!
