My Heros Have Always Been Cowboys

I’ve been mentally pacing those interior spaces, trying to decide what story to tackle next, confronting something that looks a lot like this—you know, in my mind’s eye…

Crossroads1

But Rowan’s been hell-bent on Western themes: wide open spaces, hard times, hard men, harder…

Um, well, Rowan can be a little frisky. He’s my Muse.

As for a Muse, apparently he just shows up, a bit like Gandalf… exactly when he wants to. With that in mind I waited patiently, expecting this:

But knowing the Universe has a sense of humor, I was willing to settle for this:

To be honest, I never expected this…

…or the path/choices to look like this:

As a writer, I’ve been here more times than I care to admit:

…looking for this:

…and getting this (this is real BTW, been there, with a horse trailer in tow):

So, what is Rowan … dear, sweet, annoying-as-hell Rowan … in the mood for?

Riiight (write?).

Dusting off the Stetson, curling the reata, giving a quick curry to Sadie… Stay tuned.

About Nya Rawlyns

Nya Rawlyns doesn’t write typical romance. She writes emotion as a contact sport, rough and often raw. It need not be pleasant, heart-warming or forever after. What she seeks is what lies beneath—a dance of extremes, the intersect of need and desire, and the compromises we make when pain and pleasure become indistinguishable. ***** She has lived in the country and on a sailboat on the Chesapeake Bay, earned more than 1000 miles in competitive trail and endurance racing, taught Political Science to unwilling freshmen, and found an avocation in materials science. ***** When she isn’t tending to her garden or the horses, the cats, or three pervert parakeets, she can be found day dreaming and listening to the voices in her head.
