Writing historical fiction: sometime journal of a New York City novelist

</i>a nun who loves to go dancing

A nun who loves to go dancing -- I have decided that is what I am. Being a novelist is like having a vocation. It is a very demanding, concentrated vocation and when all is going well, your characters and their needs are completely satisfied and on their way to a printed, fully formed novel. But I also love people, concerts, singing, my Shakespeare reading group, church life. I am someone who hates to say no and loves to say yes. It is so rare that the house is reasonably neat AND I have a rich life with friends and family AND I am writing well. It happens on rare days but alas these past several days are not the rare ones.

I think I had better put away my dancing shoes for a just a little while.
