You have made it all the way here, so you may as well sit down, take a minute to look around, and enjoy. What you will find, depends on the day and my mood. You just never can tell.

Summer Schedule

It’s spring and almost summer!  This is my absolute favorite time of year.  I get refreshed, I feel inspired, and I lose the funk that I tend to hold onto from the first frost all the way until the first spring flowers begin to bloom. 

What that also means is that I get busy.  Busy outside in the garden and the yard.  Busy cleaning and clearing out the house from the winter.  Busy planting flowers and putting down mulch.  Most of all, I get busy writing.  I have been cranking out words by the thousands lately on my current manuscript.  What’s it about? I don’t want to say.  It’s a bit of a surprise.  However, what I can say is, the first draft is almost done all ready.  If I work on it this week as I have the last few, I may have it done this week.  I may not, but it is possible.  As I said above, I am feeling inspired.  Thank you sunshine!

I am also full swing within dance season for the tiny dancer.  Her hip is still an issue and causes her pain and frustration, but she is learning to deal with it and press on.  Some days are fine, some not so much.  I guess that is what determination is.  It’s awesome and frightening to see up close and person how very determined she is.  Only a few more weeks of the chaos of dance, then we get a decent break (like 6 whole weeks!!!!), before it all starts over in August.  One good thing about the crazy dance season is that I have a lot of time just sitting around, which I am filling with good books to read and even time spent plucking away at my WIP in some form or another.  I’m having fun.  Yes, its nuts and crazy and time consuming, add in a touch of drama and tears, a splash of hair emergencies, you just about have a picture of it.  The upcoming six weeks of break, I wont know what to do with myself. 

No, this is not a literary blog.  This is a welcome to my life blog.  It’s almost summer and I am thrilled.  I wont be blogging every week for the summer.  It will be more like every other week.  Mainly because I have a few projects that I really want to get working on and finished before the cold and rain comes back and I get dreary and sad.  I may even give agent hunting a go.  Maybe. 

Hopefully next blog I will be able to say I am done with my first draft of my new story.  I’m trying.   


  1. It's amazing how much weather impacts inspiration. Not so bad if you can pump it out like that now, though! Good luck getting finished. You sure deserve a good agent.

    1. I am very weather mood oriented apparently. More so then even I realized. I should move to Arizona or someplace that has more sunshine.

  2. Welcome to your life! And goodbye to my happy one, well at least weather wise. Now that you are happy the sunshine is here, I'm depressed because the heat and humidity are definitely full swing down here in swamp country. Ugh, I'm so hot already!

    1. I think the humidity would be hard to handle. Even me, the lover of heat, can get a bit cranky when the humidity hits hard. Good luck this summer staying cool.
