Reflections on Harvest Time

When you first think about it, Christmas seems to get all the love when it comes to music. However, looking a little deeper, harvest celebrations and Thanksgiving have some beautiful songs too. Here's one of my favorites:

Listening to the lyrics, I can easily imagine a farmer scattering seed—she knows there will be a time of waiting until the harvest can be gathered in, and the waiting is filled with hard work.

It's the same for planting words: it seems to take a lot of time between starting a book and finishing the story. 

As the farmer waits after the seed is planted, there's also a long "middle time" for every creative project, but the harvest is sweet. 

Happy Thanksgiving and many blessings to you for a bountiful harvest for your writing and other creative projects.

From tufted puffins to a rare Northwest dog—animals, birds and nature play important roles in my island mysteries. To explore the Islands of Mystery, click here →

In my stories, you'll find islands, mystery, friendship and danger. 

My novel, Mystery Shores, is set on a lighthouse island filled with secrets.
