Every time I think I’m going to blog on a regular basis, like maybe weekly, something happens. Before I know it, two or three weeks have passed.
And while I don’t want to write something just for the sake of writing, I would like to communicate more often with my readers.
So what have I been up to the past couple of weeks? Of course, I’ve been writing. I’ve made a few changes to The Stranger (once offered as a free giveaway for my mailing list). I plan to make it available on Amazon and other retailers within a few days.
Final edits for Unseen Motives is coming along. I’ll be revealing a sneak peek at the cover soon and plan to have the book ready for sale in November. I’m also working on a short story with a Christmas theme.
But I also took a few days off from writing, and it’s been refreshing. I took the time to catch up on my reading list and have almost met my Goodreads challenge for this year.
Some of you may know I enjoy looking at the night skies—even it involves manmade objects. So when I learned the International Space Station would be visible a couple of weeks ago, I phoned my brother.
We watched it for four or five minutes until it faded from view. Afterward, we sat and talked as the stars became visible and the night insects began to chirp. We even heard a Screech Owl—something I hadn’t heard in a long time. (My mother was superstitious of them, but I love owls.)
Speaking of night skies, did you see the super moon last weekend? The Hunter’s moon is always bright, but it was especially so a few nights ago.
I didn’t have my camera (the photo is from a couple of years ago) because my husband and I were with friends. We went with a group to one of our favorite barbecue restaurants. (If you haven’t had Texas barbecue, you don’t know what you’re missing. However, I am biased.)
Part of my downtime includes spending more quality time with my spouse. We attended a production of The Miracle Worker a few weeks ago at our local community theater.
Throw in a class reunion, a birthday celebration for an aunt, and seeing the movie Sully on opening weekend.
So now, this extroverted introvert is ready to get back into my writing schedule, but the time away helped to clear my mind. I feel like I can focus on the editing with a clearer perspective.
Have you done anything special this fall? I’d love to hear about it.
