The Write Way……….

My big worry this weekend was the deadline hovering over my head like a razor sharp machete just waiting to swing down and well….you know.
Then the fires kicked off. That’s a picture of the sun taken from my front porch and we were about forty miles from the closest fire. The smoke and ash in the air were incredible and the yellow light coloring the world was extremely weird.
But, since we are Orange County Romance Writers, I want to put this hope out there that all of our friends and their families came through these wildfires safely. There are a lot of things more important than deadlines.
Maureen Child is the author of more than 100 romance novels and novellas. She’s diving back into deadline mode now………..

    Very eerie photo, Maureen. Something out of a sci-fi film.

    I hope and pray everyone’s okay out in OC.

    Me too, Sandy. It was pretty scary even this far away……

    There is ash all over my patio. If the smoke was so terrible our way–and it was–my heart aches for our members (and everyone!) who may have been affected.

    Scary stuff!

    I’m hoping so too, Marianne, for all of our OCC people….

    And it was a seriously weird sky.
