Why I Like It At Home

Taking a break from writing, editing and promoting to stop and smell whatever that is that smells so good out there. We had some hideously hot weather earlier in the spring, but it’s cooled back to seasonable temperatures and spring showers. ~YAWN~ Who the frack cares?

Okay, fair enough. But it was GORGEOUS out this morning and I had breakfast on the back porch this morning, taking in the sights and sounds and smells of the country. Toaster waffles with peanut butter and marmalade, if you must know. Nobody was cutting up the pasture with their off-the-road vehicles, nobody had just spread manure on their fields, nobody was flying their ultra-lights across the sky, so it was pretty darn nice.

I’m sharing a couple of snappies with you: one is of the blueberry bush that lives just off the porch; the other is of the potting/storage/dog shed just this side of the garden.

Hope you love where you live as much as I love where I live. 🙂

WRITING PROMPT: Does your main character love where he/she lives? Why or why not? Write a couple of paragraphs from the point of view of someone with the opposite feeling toward the place.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.
