TWITL – week twenty-three – fun in the sun

It was such a lovely week, weather-wise. We had a couple of days where it was actually cool enough to not run the a/c after work. Amazing! Of course, now it’s warming up again. The forecast says that we’ll have triple digits by the end of the week. Yikes! Our Saturday started with corn hole.…

TWITL – week twenty-two – creative limbo

TWITL – week twenty-two – creative limbo

I started writing a story (even though I have at least two other stories that need some attention) from a scene that came in strong (and had no place in other stories I’d already started). I’m in the outlining stage and writing random chapters to get to know the characters. I thought it would be…

TWITL – week six – the long weekend

TWITL – week six – the long weekend

This past week ended on a long weekend, which is why I’m writing on Monday instead of Sunday. Four whole days off is a most wonderful thing but it made me lazier than usual. Alas! MUSIC “Better Than You’re Used To” – Tyler Rich – Tyler’s latest single is out! This song is so good…

TWITL – week forty-nine – what next

TWITL – week forty-nine – what next

I’m always slight adrift after writing for National Novel Writing Month. After writing for a whole month on a deadline with a word count, suddenly have all this “free” time just feels oddly confining. Do I continue with another installment of the novel? (Right now, I want to write more to my latest story and…

TWITL – weeks 45, 46, 47, 48 aka TMITL November 2020

It’s Monday, November 30th and if I actually post this today, it’ll be a miracle! Yes, I wrote for National Novel Writing Month again and I wrote just a smidgen over 50k words, the last of them written yesterday, November 29th. I was below the pace for most of the month but thank goodness I…

iPhone 12 Pro Max – impressions

Yes, I have a new phone! At this writing, I’ve had it for about a week and boy, do I have some things to say about it. First off, I LOVE IT. Second, it’s MASSIVE. Third, it’s expensive. Fourth, the PHOTOS ARE AMAZING. Fifth, read on for my regular person, non-expert review. IPHONE 12 PRO…

TWITL – week forty-three – almost cooler days

TWITL – week forty-three – almost cooler days

It’s Friday evening as I begin this post. Let’s see when I actually publish it. (I’ll have to remember to comment at the end…) Today it was cool enough for me to wear a long sleeved flannel. Fine, it was unbuttoned over a tank top but still! Even more, I didn’t get hot during the…

TWITL – week forty-one – fall break

TWITL – week forty-one – fall break

We usually have two weeks for Fall Break but with the world the way it is now, the breaks for fall and spring are just one week each this school year. It’s not so terrible, of course. Not everyone even gets a fall break. It sort of saves me some vacation time since I only…
