Thursday Thoughts: Universal Footprints

Sometimes, I get an idea for a book, one that is straight. Straight mystery. Straight thriller. Straight science fiction. Straight fantasy. I’ve even had ideas for westerns, historical fiction, and horror. But when I start to write something “straight,” I always get sidetracked. Maybe, this message from the Universer is why…

Do you know why, Silver, it’s so easy for us in the unseen to quickly pinpoint your whereabouts?

You leave behind footprints of love.

“The expedition’s last confirmed sighting was in Oklahoma, the legend of BIGFOOT continues.”

Even Louis L’Armour wrote romance into his books. As did Ian Fleming. Tony Hillerman. Andre Norton. Those are the authors I read as a kid/young adult. So…yeah. The Universe is right. I guess I do leave footprints of love with each book I write. Not a bad thing. Not a bad thing at all. And no, I will NOT write a Bigfoot romance. Unless y’all want one… 😏

  1. Bigfoot shifters? That would be why no one’s ever found one and they only have a few grainy pics. Heh. Yep, I could see you writing that book.

    I leave footprints of mystery everywhere. ;o)

    The only Louis L’Amour book I’ve read wasn’t a western. More like an adventure set in medieval times. Good stuff. And I’ve read a mystery by Isaac Asimov. I guess that was kind of off-topic, but I think it’s cool. The footprints of good writing, left everywhere. Yay!

      I know, right?!?! My dad was a huge L’Amour and Zane Gray fan. L’Amour caught my imagination while Gray was just okay. We discovered Hillerman together. And yes, I love the idea of the footprints of good writing left everywhere!!! ❤
