It’s Thursday, and I’m Feeling Random

Posted By on October 18, 2012

Yesterday’s Office

Yesterday, I started plotting a few more WWII-set stories. In a home away from home office, a coffee shop run by a family of women. My girl had homework, and I love working there, so we spent the afternoon.

Today, though, I’m working from home where I can spread research and papers and laptop across my desk (that would be my bed on a planning day, when I don’t have a table large enough for all the stuff I might need to grab at a moment’s notice).

As if I’m coming out of a fog after taking dead aim at that submission date, I realize I’m way behind on the RIP VII challenge. I’ve watched several movies, but I haven’t reviewed them. I’ve started reading Royal Flush. Love this series, but I’ve been so wrapped up in my own writing, I haven’t had time to finish reading a book.

Stephen King says something along the lines of not having the tools to write if you don’t have the time to read. I believe that. I’m exercising, writing, planning new stories, but not finding time to read. Need to rectify.

Road and Mountain

This photo is for my buddy, Karen Whiddon. A photo of the road winding through a ridge, I guess, not a mountain, in the foothills of the Smokies. My cousin took photos while we drove. Isn’t it beautiful?

A little snow would make this photo perfect! (I say that to horrify my cousin, who unwisely has no love for snow.)

Have some other TN photos I’ll post later. Right now, I need to refill the caffeine receptacle and get back to work.

Happy Thursday to you!

    Today is Thursday, not Tuesday. Check your heading.

    Thank you! Living here in the flatlands, I so miss hills and mountains and ridges and foliage.

    I miss the ones in Tennessee, too! We have lovely trees, and some mountains, but those Smokies are my soul’s cradle. (When I’m not cradled in the ocean!) 😉 How would you feel about a writer’s retreat?

    Thanks, you! Wish I could blame it on autocorrect! But it was just user error! (Side effect of working from home and not being home for part of this week!) Love ya!
