TWITL – week thirty-eight – autumn begins

The first day of autumn was the middle of this past week but the summer weather is still going strong. I’m hoping the triple digits are behind us but we shall see. We went to our first baseball game of the season, which happened to be the last home game of the season. We were…

TWITL – week thirty-seven – musical bright spots

I almost named this post “the final straw” but how melodramatic is that? Explanation perhaps at the end. “11:11” – Ben Barnes – I’m easy when it comes to my fellas so of course I’m adoring this new song. I’m just happy I’m liking something other than country music (which of course I still LOVE).…

TWITL – week thirty-three – smoky skies

I just noticed that my WordPress is publishing to my Livejournal again. Well, it posted my previous post. Will it do the same for this one? We shall see… I had randomly clicked on the link to my LJ and was surprised to see my latest post. As I scrolled, I saw that my last…

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

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

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

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…
