In the book I’m currently writing (Summer in Good Hope, June 2016), Max and Primrose, the hero and heroine are both math nerds.  They also love Sudoku.

Now, I was not a dummy in math.  In fact I was placed in the accelerated math program in high school (that was a mistake–whatever I loved about math disappeared after that first year) but it’s never been my thing.  I was the girl who loved English, drama and…word find puzzles.

I still love Word Finds.

I’ve tried to love Sudoku…but it seems like too much work (and too much like math)

JQ2 I’m curious to know if you love Sudoku, did you also love math?  

Does it make sense to you that my math loving H&H would enjoy Sudoku?

Inquiring minds want to know…

For many years I worked full-time and wrote full-time.  This meant I needed to utilize my time efficiently. Every week day as I was driving to work  I found myself wishing Nebraska had a great mass transit system so I could ride the train and work on my book.  Alas, I needed to keep my eyes on the road. :)

Still, I utilized the drive time by listening to audio books!  Since I love to read and was having difficulty finding the time, this was the perfect solution.

When I flew somewhere…ah, that was my chance to be maximally efficient. I  got into the habit of always writing when I was waiting at the airport or in the air.

Those people reading magazines, chatting or simply staring out into space?   Never me.  I’d put in my earbuds (instrumental music playing in the background to drown out noise) and work.

When I quit my day job four years ago, nothing changed.  I’d gotten into a habit, several habits in fact.  Now, I still work on my current book at the airport or in the air…and listen to audio books in the car.   

planes trains and auto

Tell me how you pass the time”in transit” and you’ll be entered into a drawing to win a copy of my latest release, The MD’s Unexpected Family, which should be on shelves TODAY!

I love this book and so did Romantic Times.  Here’s a snippet of the review– ”this book excels with amazing characters–none better than the star-crossed couple with palpable chemistry. The hero’s mother’s transformation from termagant to kindhearted is unforgettable.” 

The MD's Unexpected Family

In the past I’ve listened to motivational speakers talk about giving whatever you’re doing 110%.  Often they toss out familiar sayings such as: Do more than is required or Go the extra mile.

While I do give 110% sometimes, I admit there are times when I’m very content to simply muddle along.

Take for example, Pinterest.  There are lots of things an author can do on Pinterest.  Last year at the Romance Writers of America conference I attended a session that focused on fully utilizing Pinterest.  Because I took the notes on my phone, I still have them.  Occasionally I think about trying one or two of the things suggested but just haven’t gotten around to it.

Do I go on Pinterest?  Yes.  Here are some of the ways I use it for my books:

To get ideas about party decorations

Clothing ideas for my characters

Home decor and exterior home ideas

Food ideas

I set up boards on Pinterest for my books where I “sometimes” post pics of who I think my hero and heroine look like, their homes or places of business, clothing etc.  Am I consistent in doing this?  No.   Do I think these boards could be better organized?  Yes

The thing is, if I had to give 110% of effort to Pinterest, I’d probably not do it at all.  Yet, using it in a way that works for me, allows me to enjoy it.

I’m curious.  Is there something you enjoy doing, specifically because you can muddle and not feel as if you have to give it your all?

Everyone who comments will be entered into a drawing to win a copy of the next book in my RX of Love to be released next month.

This story received a stellar (4 1/2 stars) from RT and a lovely review. Here’s a snippet– “this book excels with amazing characters–none better than the star-crossed couple with palpable chemistry. The hero’s mother’s transformation from termagant to kindhearted is unforgettable.”

Please comment and let me know I’m not the only one who muddles…then check back on Sunday to see if you’re a winner!
