Waiting for the Pot to Boil...

I know you've heard the saying, "A watched pot never boils." Well, I'm beginning to think the same applies to the arrival of spring. This is what was on my deck Wednesday morning. Snow! And you can't tell by the picture, but it was still snowing.


 Don't get me wrong. I love snow. When October rolls around I'm always looking forward to that first snowfall. I'm a little like Lorelai Gilmore. The first snow fall is magical. 



And yes, I can sometimes smell snow. 

But come on already. 

It's May. 

May . . . when flowers bloom. 

May . . . when it's supposed to be warm. 

May . . . when my new book, Wanted, is supposed to be released.

And in case you were wondering, yes, I'm watching the stores like the little gal in the picture waiting for the pot to boil or rather for my beautiful, shiny new book to appear.

It won't be long now. Maybe I need to fine tune the snow smelling to sniffing out a new novel. :) I know it's out there . . . somewhere . . . lost in the mail . . . or stuck on a truck.

Can you smell snow before it falls? Do you get antsy waiting for spring? Or for your novel to come out? Or for your WIP to be finished?

  1. I no longer live where the snow falls every year. Here in the lovely (hot) deserts of southern Nevada we're lucky to see the snow fall once every couple of years and then it rarely sticks, so I think I've lost my ability to smell it... oh well. And yes indeed, I do get antsy while awaiting the release of the newest novel and definitely the finish line for my current WIP. Nice post Kathi! It called up memories of my childhood. AND you're going to have to let us know when you spy that first shiny new cover out in the wild...

    1. Ah the desert sounds nice and warm, though the weather has now changed for the better. You know what they say about Utah, "If you don't like the weather, wait and hour and it will change." Still stands true. Thanks for stopping by.

  3. I know. :( My publisher is still sitting on it. I'm very frustrated with the situation, but hopeful. Just last week my editor told me the sequel was on her radar and she's just waiting for the right time to bring it up. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the right time will be soon.
