Time is of the essence. Time flies. Time is money. All in good time. Third time’s the charm. Time will tell. With deadlines looming, and me running out of time, time has become precious. And then the Universe slaps me up side the head with this:
Sometimes, Silver, when things take longer than you thought they would, it’s just a gentle reminder that you have more time than you thought—and that there’s a journey to enjoy.
Yeah, like all the time in the world.
Enjoy every minute,

Besides, Silver, just because it’s taking longer than you thought it would, doesn’t mean stuff isn’t happening, even as you read these words.
I nudged UNDER THE ASSASSIN’S MOON right up against the deadline. Which put me behind on my next deadline. But I did finish it in the nick of time and you know what? I needed that time to write the book right. Stuff did happen, stuff that needed more words, more thought. And that’s okay. I’ve learned to pay attention to the words, to the time it take for a book to take shape, for the characters to settle into their skin. And with some nudges from the Universe and a friend, I took the time for that to happen. I think the book is better for it. I’ll find out after the 21st, once it’s released into the wild. So how do you spend your time? Do you spend it wisely? Or do you take time to smell the roses? 😉
