Hello and Welcome! Come on in and I’ll get you a nice large mug of a very strong dark roast, a cuppa tea or some other beverage. It is a very nice day out there and will be warm later today – short sleeve shirt weather. Oh, where are we? Some of you may recognize the photo at the top as being from New Hampshire.
This was an odd week all around, though I don’t remember half of it ;)
I almost forgot… I spent all day Sunday on Cape Cod, something I usually don’t do – I usually leave early in the morning. So after our last coffee share I did a few long walks on the beach, including going to my favorite beach, Chapin, for one of the few walks there this year. I was also able to get out on the kayak again. So it was nice.
Work was busy, but not insane. I had Monday off. I had a dentist appointment on Tuesday, the first, painful part of having a crown replaced. Tuesday night was Lions Club.
I did a pretty good job of keeping up with my running this week, which is good. I have not been as consistent this year as the last few. I was also able to get my other dumbbell and body weight exercises done. I walked the dogs a lot, despite almost 24 hours of torrential rains Thursday afternoon through Friday. I walked on my own a few times.
Perhaps the big news is writing. I came up with the idea for a book and “wrote” the entire thing in my head. I sat down and did a quick synopsis, so I wouldn’t forget anything (I often write things in my head, but rarely do the synopsis when I am done, I usually just write it or I don’t write it). Anyway, my quick synopsis was 11,000 words long… I may aim this at YA but I do not want to write in the style I often see in YA books, I want to write in my style, so I had a post asking people’s opinions.
The second part of writing is my new short story. I had made an off-the-cuff remark on someone’s post. They said it sounded like a story. I did a quick, three sentence tag-line of a movie based on this fictional (fictional here meaning there really isn’t a story) story. But then I thought, “Hey, that might actually be good…” So I sat down and wrote a quick 6,000 word story and posted it yesterday. As some of you know, me writing a story like that isn’t super unusual – I used to write stories of this length and post them within two hours of the challenge photo being posted. Only it is now – my writing has been down to almost zero for the last two years, so all of this writing this past week is great. Maybe I am ready to get back into it.
Anyway, as I said, it is beautiful out there and I need to participate in sunshine and bright fall colors.
Thanks for stopping by! If you have a coffee share I will be sure to drop in for a visit!
