From the April 2014 newsletter, by Maureen O. Betita
Ah, spring is here. Really here instead of the pseudo spring we've
had all winter. (I know, the rest of the country hates us.) (Well,
move to paradise!)
What comes with Spring? Distractions. Good, bad and neutral. The good?
A sunbeam you pause to enjoy, the scent of jasmine on a light breeze,
season finales... The bad? Season finales, the sight of pollen wafting
through the air, taxes....
I distract easily, unless I am purposefully distracting myself. Lately,
I'm intently distracted, editing my never-ending series. I needed
the escape and there it was, needing all those first person sections
converted, names corrected, ship names italicized... Anything but
what I'm avoiding. But even I have been caught by the smell of jasmine....
