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

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…

TWITL – week thirty-nine – first days of autumn

TWITL – week thirty-nine – first days of autumn

It doesn’t feel like autumn quite yet. As I write this Sunday afternoon, it’s in the mid 90s and the sun is bright in the sky. Where is the weather for sweaters and jackets? I’m so ready for it! The husband went fishing in Idaho and brought back some super lovely photos. I’m so proud…

TWITL – week thirty-eight – a bit of solitude

TWITL – week thirty-eight – a bit of solitude

I have never lived alone. It’s a strange thing to realize at my age but it’s true. I think it’s interesting when I think in terms of my writing. My characters oftentimes start off living alone because they’re already “established” and have the means to live alone. Yet I have never lived alone. So what…
