I go to fabulous lunches at wonderful restaurants. The truth? mostly I eat cereal, or half a sandwich, or whatever with...my cat.
I drink champagne every day. Champagne cocktails are my drink of choice. But I rarely drink anything alcoholic. I'm usually the designated driver.
I eat chocolate. It's hard not to eat a piece(s) a day. Godivas, Hershey (especially the nuggets with toffee bits), chocolate chips... I'm pretty sure it keeps the doctor away and gives me a youthful appearance.
I lounge around and read lots of books. If only. I get about thirty minutes a night to read. This is a problem for me because I love to delve into a good book. But I also love to watch television and embroider or needlepoint.
I go shopping all the time. I adore handbags and for me, it isn't necessarily about buying an expensive one. I look for something different, unique. Sometimes, my characters love handbags, too. *giggle* But no, I don't go shopping every day, unless it is the grocery store.
I love cake. Mmm, talking about cake makes my mouth water. If I ate lots of cake (and the chocolate), I'd resemble a tank. I feature it regularly in stories 'cause if I can't have it, my characters can. The opening scene in "I Believe" features a chocolate and strawberry concoction.
I drive expensive cars. My handsome hubby has two Austin-Healey bug-eyed Sprites. We get all kinds of comments when we are driving around town. Even get asked to have our picture taken at stop lights and in parking lots. My drive of choice is an old Jeep and my characters drive one too.
Here's the real skinny on a writer: Most of the time… I write! I work as a professional at my craft. I sit down every day after my workout and write, blog, write blogs, visit blogs and write something, visit Facebook and write. Write, write, write. I love it!
