I stopped by Brit Blaise's blog and took her Tarot Card Test. It was fast, simple and the results were fun. Here's what I learned. No wonder I love writing romance!

You are The Lovers

Motive, power, and action, arising from Inspiration and Impulse.

The Lovers represents intuition and inspiration. Very often a choice needs to be made.

Originally, this card was called just LOVE. And that's actually more apt than "Lovers." Love follows in this sequence of growth and maturity. And, coming after the Emperor, who is about control, it is a radical change in perspective. LOVE is a force that makes you choose and decide for reasons you often can't understand; it makes you surrender control to a higher power. And that is what this card is all about. Finding something or someone who is so much a part of yourself, so perfectly attuned to you and you to them, that you cannot, dare not resist. This card indicates that the you have or will come across a person, career, challenge or thing that you will fall in love with. You will know instinctively that you must have this, even if it means diverging from your chosen path. No matter the difficulties, without it you will never be complete.

What does quality mean to you?

As a nurse, I always hear the phrase "quality patient care". Quality is what I strive to deliver to my patients and their families every time I work a shift. In order to adhere to this standard of practice, I need to organize, prioritize, and research much of the clinical tasks I perform in a twelve-hour shift. At the same time, I need to emotionally connect with patients, families, and co-workers. They all need to have confidence that I care about what I'm doing, and possess the knowledge base to perform each task. This is a form of trust and respect.

When I compared writing to nursing, I found that I attempt to apply quality on a page, too. I organize, prioritize, and research what I want to cover in my WIP. Sometimes each word is agonizingly placed, only to find when the chapter goes through critique, I could have done a little something different. I look at each of my crit partners at WRITESPOT and realize my relationship with them is the same as when I'm at the hospital. Again, they need to have the confidence and knowledge that I care about what I am doing. That I can give constructive advice on their WIPs, and complete their critiques in a timely manner. And, that I care about the advice they give in return. Again, a form of trust and respect.

I never knew how my love of nursing and writing were so similar. Love what you do. Take pride in your work and let the quality shine through.



January brings a new challenge. Rose Colored Glasses' Plotting Bootcamp. Besides an erotica spy series I have in mind, I am getting some great ideas for my sequel to Dating 9-1-1. In the first book, Fireman Jett Avery tangles his fire hose with ER nurse Roxanne Carter.

When ER Doctor Cruz Avery meets the very obstinate and beautiful Doctor JJ Jones, his blood pressure spikes to stroke level. Whether his symptom is the result of her refusal to date him, or her sexy body remains to be diagnosed.

I'll also be working on my edits for THE DOCTOR'S DECEPTION.

I'm almost done judging Golden Heart entries. I'll also be judging the Golden Quill Published Contest put on by Desert Rose RWA, and will be judging 2008 North Texas Great Expectations contest. Hmmm. Looks like I have a lot of reading in my future!

More fun news! Brandon Dennis over at Writer's Web is working on my website. The layout promises to be the right combination of sexy, medical, and fun!
