Lynn Cahoon's Blog


We're already almost one month into 2017. Where are you with your new years resolutions? I decided to focus on two things this year, at least outside my career as an author. One is exercise. My goal was to work out more times a week than I don't. I'm trying to lose weight. And I want to feel better. I've been doing good, but it's been a struggle. I don't love running. I don't love most exercise, but last year I bought a CIZE workout program. I wasn't the best at it, but I kept trying. This year, I bought Country Heat. I love it. It's dance based. I know, it's early in the process, but I feel stronger. I can feel the workout. And I like the music. I don't dread going to exercise. The session

Re-create... or Filling the Well

The weekend's almost over and for once, my time was mostly spent on fun stuff. Call it a bonus for finishing a book at the first of the month, but I needed a weekend where I didn't think about writing. So we went out to the cabin. I started reading a book - and got drawn in by the author's deft use of conflict between the love interests. What he wants and what his secret is - is the total opposite of what she needs and her own secret. In the middle, their mutual attraction to each other. Only, he doesn't know she thinks she knows his secret. He just wants a wife. I went trail riding with my husband and as the group we ride with gathered and talked, one of the kids took off on his dad's sid

Fatality by Firelight - Tour Stops

When is it a goal, and when is it a dream

So here are two items from Lynn's list... I want Jill and the gang from The Tourist Trap mysteries to be part of a movie deal this year. I want to write all three books in the new Angie Turner mystery series about a farm-to-fork chef and set in Southwestern Idaho (my old stomping grounds.) Which one is a dream and which one is a goal? And why? The first one is a dream. Mostly because I have NO CONTROL over the outcome. I can send queries to film agents and do a lot of wishing, but that's about it. The second one is a goal. I CAN control what I write and what I turn into my publisher. Why am I talking about this? Because I think newbie writers set themselves up for disappointment by goaling f

Happy New Year

New Years Eve went by way too fast. I wrote for a bit, read through my current pages, and then we went riding. Later in the evening, we joined up with other trail riders at the community center to dance 2016 away and welcome the baby new year. But what I love most about the new year, is the new chances we get to improve our selves, our lives, and our communities. I'm a believer that change starts inside so this year for me is about consistency. I'm a terrific starter. One thing that writing has taught me, it's not so much about how you start, but what you do day to day to get the job done. That's consistency. That's the magic. I've made goals with my best friend who also writes. She gets it
