On March 2, 1836, 59 people signed Texas Declaration of Independence, breaking from Mexico and forming the Republic of Texas. In Texas, this is an official holiday.
Texas is certainly an interesting state. Huge and varied from north to south and east to west. Sometimes I forgot how really big the state is when the hubby and I try to drive across in one day!
Those of us who write Texas-based books use the whole state for a varied stories. The different topographies add flavor to our settings. We, authors of Texas-based books, need to celebrate this day as I can’t imagine not have the state with it’s sexy southern men, cowboys, strong women, cattle, horses, oil, etc.
So let’s do it. Let’s celebrate Texas Independence Day, except like the state we honor, the holiday is just too big for a day! Let’s do a whole week!
