The Keyboard Compass

January 15, 2017

The Christmas tree was finally dismantled today, put back in storage until next time. It was nice to leave it up a bit longer to enjoy the lights etc., but alas, like all good things. . . .

The writing plans for the new year are in full swing and it’s always fun to take that journey.

Jacket Weather

September 3, 2016

It seems we went right from summer to jacket weather and I’m so not complaining. I love when there’s a breeze in the air and no bugs. Revisions are going along, which is a good thing and it’s almost time for the new fall TV season.

There are a number of new shows that look intriguing to me and I hope they turn out to be as good as their ads. A few weeks left to summer but autumn is just around the corner and that is happy making.

Summer Weather

June 10, 2016

Even though summer doesn’t arrive until later this month, the weather has gotten a head start. The last few days have been more humid than normal, but there’s also been a fair amount of rain, which is good for the farmers. It is cool when the rain splatters against the deck, the sound comforting.

I’ve been working on my writing and am looking forward to the path ahead. The blooming flowers and the green all around is a beautiful sight to behold whenever I go out, and it’s a pleasure to take it all in.

I’ve been busy working on the current manuscript and revisions are afoot. I’m loving the characters and the world and am excited to finish polishing it.

The first few months of the year are flying by, which is no surprise. I’m looking forward to spring jacket weather.

I hope everyone is having a lovely weekend.

Every Journey Begins With A Single Keystroke

June 20, 2015

The work in progress is going well so far, knock on wood. It feels great when I finish my word count for the day, which is always a welcome experience. The story is unfolding and I’m intrigued to see where it takes me and my characters, leaving any assessment of it until it’s time to begin revisions. It’s a journey I’m looking forward to.

The Sword & the Pen

June 4, 2015

The Hardhome episode of Game of Thrones that aired last Sunday was fantastic. I actually burst into applause during the battle between Jon Snow and the White Walker. In between covering my mouth and hoping certain characters survived the fight and gasping at what happened to various Wildlings and men of the Night’s Watch, not to mention a certain giant, I was completely absorbed.

I’m working on a new project that’s also consumed my attention in the best possible way. I adore the idea and am excited to see how it develops. It’s a nice feeling.

Of Typing & Bug Bites

September 1, 2014

I’ve been writing up a storm of late, furiously working to finish a project. I hope everyone has been enjoying their holiday weekend. It’s kind of hard to believe it’s September already, but so it is, though I can’t say I’ll be sorry to see fall arrive since the mosquitos have been feasting on me all summer. Eh, what can you do?

Christmas Cheer

December 15, 2013

It’s been a few months since the move and I’m loving my new town. People are friendly and festive. It seemed everyone from the people at the grocery store to the staff at the hospital were in costume for Halloween. And the downtown is ready for Christmas in charming style. Took a walk at night a few weeks back and the streetlamps were decorated with Christmas lights, everything from candy canes, stars, snowflakes, and Christmas trees.

It was lovely.

And I have several ideas waiting in the queue on the writing front, which thrills me to no end.

Slow & Steady

September 9, 2013

I’m still trying to establish a new routine now that the move has happened. Much as I’d like to, I can’t do everything all at once. It’s a bit of trial and error in terms of figuring out what fits and what doesn’t anymore. I was on the penultimate edit of my manuscript when I put it aside to make the move. I’ve come to the conclusion that I need to emulate the tortoise from the fable and take the slow and steady wins the race approach. It’ll be quicker, and better, in the long run.
