I'm in my writing cave.

Some where in the Mammoth Cave in Kentucky
Sorry for the lack of blog posts. This is what happens when I focus on fiction. My mind becomes so wrapped around a story I don’t want to snap out of it to write anything else. This is because if I do, I will have to do too much re-reading of whatever story I’m working on. So basically I’ve gone into my writing cave and who knows when I will emerge. However, I am visiting the blogs I normally visit, even though I might comment every time.

Also, I'm doing some research. With the money for winning a couple of blog contests I bought a book called "Blackholes, Wormholes and Time Machines." So far I'm loving this book.  

The picture above is from the Mammoth Caves in Kentucky. I've been there twice and they have many cave tours. The tours vary in length and in most cases there is a lot climbing involved. The longest is a six hour tour that involves crawling through tight spaces. I have never gone on that one. The two hour tours were good enough for me. I recommend going there in warmer weather if you have never seen it.

Also just a side note: I’m switching jobs again. A new one starts today. Woot!

So you were literally in a cave!
If you need any more books for research, check with author Stephen Tremp. I'm sure he knows some good ones.

That cave system is amazing. I've been once or twice. Good luck with the new job.

I know you've already purchased the black holes book, Cindy, but I also recommend "The Grand Design" by Stephen Hawking. It is not a complex read and is an amazing book with many insights into quantum mechanics. Please read it if you have the time.

I am not overly fond of tight spots underground! But I have been to Mammoth Caves in Kentucky.

Today was my blog day. Tomorrow will be my day to write on my 3rd Victor Standish novel. I wrote 20 pages late last night. I awoke with my brain hurting! Victor said after all the trauma I am putting him through, a hurting brain was only Karma! LOL.

I followed over from Alex's blog, Roland

I've been to Mammoth Caves a few times and love it. I can't wait until my son is a little older and we can take him.

And I know the book trailer thing was just a popularity contest, but the winners received free advertising, which made it enticing. Besides, my trailer only came in third - obviously I'm not that popular.

Cindy said...

Mike, thanks for the book suggestion.

Alex, free advertising sounds worth it. I will look into that book too.

Miranda, Thanks!

Roland, That is a lot of pages at once. My brain would hurt too.

Christine, I may have to go back to the caves because last time I went my daughter was only 2 and she doesn't remember.

Enjoy your literary cave, Cindy. I should stay there more often. This week I will post the smart cookie awards! I am behind with that. Oh, well, my hectic writing life!
