Hello Everyone! Thanks for stopping by. I’m Terri Molina, and I write Tex-Mex romance. You can learn more about me at www.terrimolina.com
I can’t believe it’s been a year and a half since I posted here. Thank you, RTG, for having me back.
So, what’s life been like since I’ve been gone? Crazy busy, pretty much.
As you may, or may not, know, my husband lost his job in 2015 and by the end of the year, we decided to uproot our family and move back to Texas to start our own tower lighting company, a job my husband had been doing previously. Basically, our job is to climb towers and change out the lights or beacons as needed. My sons do the climbing and occasionally I work on the ground. Since Texas has a large number of lighted towers, he decided it was the best place to open. Plus, it’s home and what better place to start over?
|And when you are working on it!|
Anyway, as for the writerly side, it has its ups and downs. In all honesty, I haven’t been getting much writing done, or not as much as I’d like. I’m a neurotic writer. I go through spurts when I feel like everything I write is garbage and I’m a hack and I’ll never write another book. Sometimes I think my muse decided to stay in Arizona and taunt me from afar. Haha
Nevertheless, I do plan to get back to writing. I have a novel to finish and a few to start. The ideas haven’t lapsed just the motivation to sit-butt-in-chair has. But, I’m working on bringing my muse home.
Some things that help are, reading (for sure) books by the authors who motivate me like Nora Roberts, Jayne Krentz, Lisa Gardner, Lee Child…and occasionally I’ll read one of the authors sitting on my bookshelf just for a chance of pace (haha, writer joke).
Other things that get the gears working are long walks, long drives, attending writing workshops and watching detective type TV shows. Then, sometimes, I just go back and reread the synopsis of the book I’m writing (if there is one).
Eventually I will finish the book-in-progress and get it out there. Then my whole “ack, I’m supposed to write another book?” neuroses will start all over again.
Thank you for reading. If you’d like to see a list of my books you can follow this link to my Amazon page
