The Olympics are over and I’m sad. I am. There is something so exciting about the games. The drama, the need to see who won and being proud in our athletes…it’s great. I loved it.
I also loved that the games gave me a reason to listen to the noise while I wrote. Yes. I’m one of those people. I need noise to write. I don’t always pay attention to what I’m watching, but I like the distracting noise. If it’s deadly quiet, I can’t write.
Granted, there are times when I don’t get much done. The moment Jordyn Wieberd idn’t make the all-around I cried with her. I cheered whenMistyMay-Treanor and KerriWalsh-Jennings won the gold. I also got a bit irked when the men’s gymnastics didn’t do better. Hey, it’s great drama!
But now I’m going through withdrawal. The games are over, the ceremonies have come to a close and I don’t know what to do with myself. I used the time to write and research my stories. Good thing, too. I’ve been up to my eyeballs, in a good way, with work and I needed the time.
Now I have to find something else to provide the noise. I’ve got my iPod and it’s loaded with music. I’ve got the tv shows I bought from iTunes to listen to, but those aren’t the Olympics.
I guess I’ll have to start listening to the Indy Car races in addition to the NASCAR races I already listen to. I have to have noise.
What about you? Are there any vices you have to have when you write? Any things you have to have to get started? Or to keep going? I’d love to know! Maybe you can give me some ideas.
And now a little bit about me!
I always dreamt of writing the stories in my head. Tall, dark, and handsome heroes are my favorites, as long as he has an independent woman keeping him in line. I earned a BA in education at Kent State Universityand currently hold a Masters in Education with Nova Southeastern University.
I love NASCAR, romance, books in general,Ohio farmland, dirt racing, and my menagerie of animals. I also write under the pen name of Megan Slayer. I’m published with Total-E-Bound, Changeling Press, Liquid Silver Books, Turquoise Morning Press, Decadent Publishing and The Wild Rose Press. Come join me for this fantastic journey!

And here’s a little bit about my latest release:
Novella, M/f, Spanking
It’s 1970. The world is in upheaval. Can two people really make a difference and find love at the same time?
Noel Flynt signed up for the Army to carry out his family duty. He never expected the travesties of Vietnam to take their toll on him. He’s coming back to the world he thought he knew, but with everything changing around him, he’s going to have to learn he can’t live in the past.
CindyStephenscouldn’t wait for Noel to return. She sees the man within the uniform and has loved him for as long as she can remember. But times have changed. She’s not the timid schoolgirl any longer. Can she accept his changes, too?
The only constants are time and love.
Reader Advisory: This book contains one war hero, the woman who loves him, lots of hot sex, with a little spanking mixed in for good measure.
