I've made an executive decision: I'm going for a flowers-only garden this year. I might try to grow some cherry tomatoes in a container, but that will be the extent of the veggie gardening.
The spot where I grew veggies is sunny and perfect for some of my favorite flowers. The front yard is shady, which has its limitations. I've been drooling over those gorgeous purple alliums for years. They're my first choice. Close behind are zinnias, petunias, and flowers I can cut for bouquets.
My writing dreams also go through changes. I'm working on the last book of The Moses Conspiracy trilogy. Although I'm only at 40,000 words, I'm contemplating my next project. Shall I do a series of short stories in the same vein or go into a completely different genre? The 1950's hold a special fascination, as well as Colonial times.
Non-fiction is my first love, and I have tons of material in my files that I'd love to use. I'm still praying as I work on my current book.
Deciding what to grow was easy compared to deciding what to write next.
Writers: How do you decide what project you'll tackle next?
Readers: Veggies or flowers or both? Do you have any suggestions as to what you'd like to see come from my pen?
