Saving the best for last

002x846q Can you believe it? I’ve posted 100 love quotes for 100 days as part of the 100 Things Blogging Challenge. Here’s the one I’ve been saving for last. As a writer of romance, I find it truly lovely ~

“I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close.”

~ Pablo Neruda

Come January 1st, I’ll do another 100 Things Challenge.

Why? Blog presence is important in this gigantic haystack known as the publishing world and such a commitment keeps me active here. As important as it is to maintain that presence, blogging comes pretty hard sometimes. Yes, even a chatty writer like me has wordless days. They may be few, but I still have them on occasion. lol

If you take a peek at the tabs above for my links page, you see I do have other blogs that I use as “satellites” for a be in multiple places at once strategy. And I use them a few times each week for those mini blog hops I join in on. While the other blogs are work-related, here it’s pretty much about me — an author on a journey. This is the place for readers to become acquainted with the person behind the writing.

*Subscribe here to follow my ramblings.  My interests are as vast as stars in the sky and my topics could literally be anything.

  1. Hi, Rose,

    I love the quote!

    • Isn’t that a lovely one? To me it was the best example of a love quote. I think I’ve sorted through a few hundred. Now I have to think up another 10 things to blog about. lol busy busy.

    I would love to be part of your next 100 days……

  3. Melissa Keir says:

    Wonderful quote. I wish my hubby was into the mushy words but he shows his love in other ways. 🙂

  4. Marianne Stephens says:

    You have lots of energy to do all this…good for you! The 100 things challenge you give yourself is inspiring…and a novel way to entice viewers. Nice job!

    • Thanks, Marianne. 🙂 I have to say it works. How I managed to get three books out this past year I’ll never know. lol Maybe Gemma’s right about clones. If only they’d be my minions…

  5. I’m always amazed at how much you get done in a day, Rose, when it comes to ‘internet presence’… and then there’s the rest of your life. Yes, I’m sure you have cloned yourself!

    • LOL I’m trying to get the clones to write my books. I’ve explained a bigger backlist is in all our best interest but they’re not having any of it. I think I’ve burned them out. 😉
