The past few weeks have been exceptionally hard on this arthritic body of mine. The temps have been everywhere! One day it was 74°F and that night it dropped down to 16°F! Arthr had a field day, well, more like a week. The one thing keeping me going, besides God and The Husband, of course, is Callie and the rest of the dogs.
Callie doesn’t stop too often. I had forgotten what life with a young puppy was like. Training isn’t going great because she is so young, but the few things I have been able to teach her need to be reinforced and refreshed often. This doesn’t surprise me: She has just now passed the 13-week point.
Today it is cold, but bright and sunny. I needed the sunshine. I needed it to remind me it isn’t always going to be cold, gray, and dreary.
In writing news, The Sleeper is progressing nicely and the first notebook will be filled soon. When I begin the second one I will begin typing the first into the computer. Not stopping to type in the story once each chapter or writing day comes to a close has really helped me to keep the story flowing. The enjoyment of writing is also fresh and a steady stream. Other stories will require other ways of telling it initially.
The bullet journal for the book is indispensable! I would be completely lost without it some days; others I rarely even glance inside. One of the main reasons this particular bullet journal is so useful is keeping a list of all resource material read and quotes taken from here and there. I know what quotation was used, in what chapter, and under what context and connotation if there is any. I can’t say enough good about bullet journals when writing.
Besides rain, gray skies, and cold temperatures, the bridge leading to our house was nearly washed away in a big tide! Brush got caught underneath the bridge which took out the concrete supports. Luckily the steel supports are still there and The Husband can take our vehicle out and back, but it does need repairing. Still, we are not stranded. Thank God!
Off to the ink mines!
Have a good day everyone!
