Family, Writing


In the promotion category: Moon Over Donamorgh and Bridgebuilders are both up over at Here’s hoping for lots of buzzes! Well, and purchases, too.

I feel fortunate to mention that nothing very exciting is happening around here these days. Just typical household stuff: watering the vegetable garden, pulling weeds, sticking to the diet, which is less of a diet and more of a lifestyle change. I’ll never be able to go back to eating lots of whatever I want.

Of minor excitement, is our new front door. We’ve been living with a broken door for years, and when it got to the point that the silly thing would not stay closed unless the deadbolt was locked, we gave up and went shopping.

Let me tell you, our new door is awesome. Sort of steampunk, castle style and painted a gorgeous red. I will post a picture, but not until all the accoutrements are properly added. Even then, you won’t yet have the full effect. That will have to wait until June or so, when we’ve had the exterior of the house painted.

So yes. That is exciting, at least to us.

In other news, I am writing. Really. I am. It seems necessary for me to get angry with myself about my abysmal self-discipline where writing is concerned. I’m not feeling inspired? Who the heck cares? B-I-C and write, already!

There’s really no excuse for not finishing at least one novel a year. Two should be possible. Not perfected, ready-to-publish novels. But complete ones.

And on that note, it’s time to open Scrivner and get with it. If you feel inclined, please tell me what you’re up to for the coming weekend. That will give me something to do after I get some word count done.

  1. Afraid I may be shoveling more snow 😦 1 to 3 inches predicted here in upper Michigan for my area tomorrow. Breaks my heart to have you watering your garden when I’m looking at 3′ piles of the white stuff in my back yard!

    1. Oh my gosh. I cannot imagine snow this late in the year. Of course, I can hardly imagine it at all, but wow. I am incredibly spoiled here in California. But just think of all the water you’ll have in reservoirs! Over here, we’re in a perpetual state of drought.
