Traveling Without Leaving Home


Inspiration has struck! Thanks to all of you who have sent me photos and prompts. Your support genuinely means the world to me!

I plan on getting around to the prompts, and I have them saved for a time when they will be needed, but right now I have thrown myself into my novel! I have Mel of Caramel to thank for that!! So thank you, Mel!! Mel emailed me with loads of advice, things that helped her when she was writing her book, and a bunch of pictures, and it instantly got my creative juices flowing!!

Lately, I’ve been doing a lot of research on the beautiful state of Tennessee. I really need to make the trip. It is only about a 5 to 7 hour drive depending on the town. It’s not that far away at all. Anyway, I have fallen in love with Watagua Lake. I could spend so much time there, and that’s exactly what my main character is doing. I am taking an idea and merging it with a story I have previously written, and I couldn’t be more excited!!


Anyway, back to Watagua Lake. Not only is the lake spectacularly beautiful, especially in the fall…..




……but they also have a winery, and it looks like it came straight from Italy!!




I am in love!! ❤ ❤ And now I HAVE to go there!!!!

So if you need me, I’ll be in Tennessee, in my mind.

Love & life lessons,

    Isn’t it great that when you are writing, the world is your oyster. You can go anywhere you want!

    Don’t forget to include some time in Great Smoky Mountains National Park. My friends and I make a motorcycle trip to this area along the Tennessee and North Carolina border every couple of years. I can’t wait to read your book!
