Today is May 1st. To some what I'm about to say may seem absurd. But, to me, it's true. It's a cloudy, rainy day and I think it's beautiful. Some of my favorite days are filled with rain. These days surround me with a sense of calm as if everything is being washed away just to start again. Can you imagine your favorite rainy day? Where all you did was lie in bed listening to the soft patters of raindrops against your window? The rain soothes those, whether they are happy or sad. And when it's done, it leaves a freshness that demands to be taken advantage of, and that's what I'm doing today.
A few months ago I started the second installment to my first novel, Caged - The Human Zoo. But, due to numerous rejections and lack of energy I needed a hiatus. Today though, I've picked back up where I left off with a newfound energy. It's been a long time since I've woken up thinking, "it's time to continue Priya and Jax's story." But their journey is unfinished and like a torrential rainfall, it demands to be seen.
I know to most of you this means nothing because you haven't even read Caged. But for those of you that have, I hope this announcement fills you with joy and anticipation. There is still a lot left to be said and I hope all of you will be able to read their story soon.
Until then, enjoy this cloudy and raining day. Try to see it as a new start instead of annoying wet day.
