Sunday Snippets - Sundry Somethings

Wait a minute? Didn't I just write this? Can a week have passed already? Phew, no wonder I'm tired. ;-)

Hoping you are enjoying your summer. I'm not a real summer person, I don't deal well with heat. Give me spring or fall anytime, especially fall. But I know summer will be over before we know it and that means we'll be back on the road, leaving Tennessee for Ohio, Pennsylvania, Delaware and Maryland. Friends and family - it's all good!

I've been busy on the computer this past week. I took the input from my critique partner and edited chapter one of  "A Montana Chance" [reminds me, I need to update the excerpt on my website], adding two new scenes. I also finished chapter two, with three new scenes and four new characters (they just seemed to crawl out of the woodwork). Got the critique back on that, will tackle it next week but want to work on chapter three first....wait, no. That's not right, I have to do an insert chapter which will become chapter two, and two will be three so I'd be writing four...nevermind. It will all work out...

Randy also recommended several books to me and I ordered one, The Writers Journey: Mythic Structure for Writers. I'm going to start reading it tonight and hopefully it will help me with some of my newbie writing deficiencies.

Let's see, what else. Oh yeah, I'm going to Ft. Lauderdale on the 28th for a total of ten days (including driving time). I'll be visiting family, getting a little sun, meeting my great-granddaughter for the first time and maybe, just MAYBE doing my first tandem sky dive. Oh my! Anyway, I'll try to post daily but don't hold me to it.



I know you like short posts on weekends, so I'll close with a little humor:

I'm tired of talking to myself. Drop a note, please?
