Hello and Welcome! Come on in and I’ll get you a nice steaming mug of a strong Sumatra roast, a cuppa tea (many varieties), a mug of hot cocoa or other beverage. It looks like it is going to be a lovely early Spring day out there. Perhaps a little cool and too much snow on the ground, but sunny and, well, Spring. Where are we? Some of you may recognize the photo at the top as coming from
Ireland New Hampshire. Yes, I know, three weeks in a row.
Why am I in New Hampshire when I promised to be on Cap Cod? We received our fourth Nor’easter in a row this week that hit at the time I was supposed to be traveling. Up here in NH it was pretty much a non-event, but there was snow on the road on the way down. I just didn’t want to risk it, so I wimped out.
This week I wrote a 15K story (novella?) that I’d been planning for a while. I am a 100% panster. Usually. But I did do a little background work on this. If I can bank it into shape you will see it in the short story book I plan on releasing in the late Autumn.
Now that it is done, I can finally get back to editing The Halley Branch! I finished the 4th draft just under two months ago and haven;’t touched it since. I need to get going! So I will pull it out later this weekend.
Speaking of The Halley Branch, did you see the cover? Here it is again.
Work was very busy this week. I have a new person on my team. There were some issue that weren’t really mine, but I was still grilled by my manager, his manager, his manager and his manager. I’m the one who wanted a job with responsibility ;) Of course, I can make decisions that will be noticed by millions of people, so…
Besides that, it was a typical week. Writing, reading, socializing, working, playing with the dogs, message, cats, exercise, etc. Thinking of exercise, I have not been running in far too long and plan on doing that today. There are also three species of woodpeckers in my back yard and I am going to try to get a photo or two over the weekend (I see them every time I am outside unless I have a camera in hand.)
With that, I gotta go. The sun is out and the little grass peeking out from under the snow is calling my name. I’m glad you were able to stop by and chat. If you have a coffee share, I’ll try to stop by your place. Have a great weekend!
The original Coffee Share kind of died out, but it has been revived! Eclectic Alli is hosting a coffee share. This week’s share is here. and the link up is here. Come on and join in! Hopefully we can bring it back to its former glory :)
