I’m having a hard time concentrating. The weather is beautiful. Forget housework and writing, I want to go to the beach. It’s still too cold to swim, but it would be nice just sitting on the sand and watch the dolphins swim. I’ve spent an inordinate amount of time on Pinterst “pinning” fun things to do this summer.
Here’s a nice picture to get you ready for summer:
Our first trip to the beach is usually Mother’s Day. I may have to move that up. I’m thinking a nice day trip before the crazy Spring Break crowd hits. My youngest tells me her gills are dry. She was voted most likely to be a mermaid by her swim team. She’s swimming with a winter swim group, but apparently 3 times a week isn’t enough. Can’t say I blame her. I love the water.
Yesterday was Super Tuesday. I hope all who had primaries voted. I’m thinking of building a time machine so I can just skip the next four years. No matter who wins, it’s going to be scary! No more politics, I promise.
On a happy note. Fellow ROW80 participant Gloria Weber has a new release out today. She was kind enough to do a guest post. Click on her name to zip on over and read all about it. My copy arrived this morning! I love pre-orders it’s like Christmas.
Participate in the weekly Health/Fitness Challenge at church. Goal this week attend two workout classes and one day on treadmill. Total failure.
–Read 4 books a month, roughly 1 book a week. I just started reading Charming by Elliot James. I love it so far. It’s funny and snarky.
-Edit book 2 in my mystery series. Nada! I’m tossing this goal for now.
-Work on self-publishing Book 1. This is my critique project. I have submitted the first 5 chapters.
-Institute Meatless Monday. We had mostly meatless Tuesday, so I’m counting that. It was stir-fry with very little meat.
-Keep up with the local Critique Group. I have four pieces to read this round. I’m waiting a little closer to the meeting to read them.
-At some point I need to write a story I’ve plotted. Goal this week is: 6,000 words. Not feeling it this week. I think it’s Spring Fever. I have 2,327 words so far this week. I’m down by 673. I am writing every day, but it’s hard. I keep watching the Bluejays torture my dog. They steal his food. I’m making progress, it’s just slow. I did some research this morning on European explorers in the coastal south. I also googled water quality and drowning. 🙂 Makes you wonder what I’m writing…
– Edit/publish Mystic Brew. Done!
What’s the strangest thing you have researched for a WIP?
