Yes, Presidents have fireside chats.

Kat and

I are NOT presidents, unless we are discussing presidents of our own imaginary worlds,

(like Kat's Artica), which as writers we both create, abundantly.

Our FIRESIDE CHAT is going to be tomorrow night at 6:00 P.M. EDT on Kat's BTR show, Kat's Writing Pen

This is going to be a special BTR show. No guests, just Kat and me letting you all peek into our Mom and Daughter world.

We're both published authors, and we live together...it SHOULD be fun! 

Join us. I don't think you'll be sorry.

Today is Monday, April 11, 2011. In four days I was to have been operated on. I have not been in the best place during these last weeks as I anticipated this surgery..and so I wrote, like a maniac, but not a new story...no...I diverted me from thinking about anything not somehow connected with Muse and promoting Muse and my brother and sister Musers.

I have written a total of twelve postings since April 1st at my assorted blog spots and on my daughter's Kat Holmes'. I also posted one, just today, at the Muse It Up Blog too. (I'm not including the two I have scheduled for release on May 30th at the Muse Blog, or the one still scheduled to come out for TWILIGHT COMES closer to the start of May.)

Then I failed the pre-op chest x-ray, canceling any opportunity I might have had to get the surgery over and done with on April 15th.

That was a hard pill to swallow after a lot of already hard pills to swallow...

But today...actually just now, I went and looked at the 12 postings I placed since April 1st and felt such a swelling of love, warmth, and gratitude inside me.

Muse is more than family, it is sanity.

So many of you took time from your busy lives to stop by and leave comments...comments I can look back at now, and again feel the

tug on my heartstrings.

I want to take this moment to thank each and every one of you who took the time to comment.

Kat and Karen, you two...How did I get so lucky?

Barbara E. and Roseanne...I am truly blessed to share this glorious place called Muse with you.

Arlene, Lea, Rosalie, Larion, Sara, Antonia, N.J., Kay Dee, Karen McG, Ginger, Viviane, Chrystalla, Emily, Lawna, Shellie, and festival 8 (sorry I don't recognize your tag)...

Thank you. I needed your comments more than any of you know.

And I love you all.
