Hello and Welcome! Come on in and I’ll get you a large mug of French Roast or a cuppa tea or some hot cocoa. The air here feels damp even though it is far below freezing and hasn’t been above freezing in quite a while. So, in damp, frigid weather you need some type of warm beverage. The good thing is that it isn’t snowing here. And where is here? Some of you may recognize that rough-wood synth stand and know I am in New Hampshire. And do you know what is great about NH this weekend? The storm of the century is passing south of us and we will get little if any snow. That is also the answer to why it has been a while since I’ve been on Cape Cod – it has been projected to snow here or there every weekend and I don’t want to travel in bad conditions. This weekend they are predicting a foot of snow and 60 mph (100 kph!) winds. I’ll stay in NH, thank you very much. Wouldn’t be a good day on the beach.
Even though I had Monday off it has been a busy week. It seems as if a lot went on last weekend. yes, there was clearing snow and ice. And trying to help somebody stuck at the top of an icy hill. It just seems that every time i got settled something else came up. Work was busy but not as busy as some weeks. I didn’t feel I accomplished as much as it does some other weeks, though I did get a lot of background work done.
It has been a very busy blogging week. I posted four new short stories. OK, three of them were 100 word flash fiction stories based on the same photo prompt. They were all very different, one a commentary on fame in pop music, one a ghost story and one a bit of experimental writing in the form of a piano sonata. I also wrote a longer, though still less than 750 word, piece of speculative fiction. The three flash fiction stories were for Friday Fictioneer – check out more stories by others!
On Monday I posted the video I had been working on over the weekend. Well, trying – I kept getting interrupted. But I did finish. It is a bit of fun. I wrote a stupid poem on Tuesday. Well, that may be a harsh judgement and the picture of Josie is very cute ;) The poem is true, though. I had written a “serious” poem trying to say something meaningful on an important subject. I have never written a worse piece of drivel in my life! So this was written as a response, kind of laughing at myself.
I did a post for this month’s 1000Speak on Forgiveness. My piece was general outline on why it is so hard to write about, but I hope I made some people think and there was some good conversation. The 1000Speak in general was relatively small, but there were some great posts. Check them out here.
So a lot of blogging!
And how about you? How has your week been? I hope it was good! If you do a coffee post I’ll try to catch up, If you don’t do a coffee post, perhaps you should consider it ;)
