Hello and welcome! Come on in and I’ll get a nice mug of
French Sumatra Roast, a cuppa tea or other beverage. It is a nice, if grey, day out there and we need some refreshment before we go explore! Many of you who have visited me for coffee in the past may see that picture at the top and know that we are on Cape Cod this weekend.
This was a nice week. Work was ultra-busy, but I took a couple of days off. Yes, this is spring break for me! I’ve kayaked, run, walked on the beach (a couple of them), walked in the woods, eaten sea food, etc., etc. I’ve read a bit and did some blogging down here, but I haven’t done as much writing or editing as I should. Too much going on!
This morning I took a long walk on Chapin Beach this morning. I also walked the dogs and had 15 minutes of play time with them (the wrestle and chase, but need supervision). My coffee post may be a minute later than usual because of these things, but, hey! I’m on Cape Cod ;)
I did some writing and editing this week, despite the earlier complaint ;) I am still about 7 segments/partial chapters ahead on The Old Mill. I’ve also been editing The Fireborn, but it gets harder every day! I go back and read and reread, but little real editing is being accomplished. I know there are issues, but I get so involved in the story. Of course, this is the 5th or 6th full draft with another half dozen minor revisions, so hopefully I have most of the rough spots taken care of, but I am finding so many. (I feel like someone took out every comma and I have to add them all back in ;) ). I did a blog post this week about my editing issues.
Since I brought up blog posts, I also posted three new installments of The Old Mill. On Monday Gill talked to Lyndsey, on Thursday he met with Galvin again and on Friday he Walked through town and ended up at the library. I also wrote a bit of micro-fiction for Friday Fictioneers and a bit of flash-fiction for #writephoto. And of course, there was a new poem on Tuesday.
This was a lot of posting, but not as much as some weeks. one thing, when I am posting Old Mill installments, I don’t want them to be the only post of the day, though it was this Friday. So that means I post more.
I am still “on vacation”, so I’m going to go back outside and walk, hike, kayak, beach some more, play with dogs some more, relax, do stuff and do even more stuff. Maybe I’ll slow down and write a little this evening….
Thanks for stopping in! I hope you had a great week this week and that next week is also a good one for you. I know the conversation, well, a bit one sided. If you have a coffee share, I’ll try to stop by your place and then it can be one sided the other way, OK?
