August 28, 2021 - Where I'm At

Saturday, August 28, 2021

That curve ball has been preoccupying me this week, and so I’ve made little writing progress. I get out of sorts when I don’t write, so today I determined to write something to keep my hand in. That something was the short story that transitions between the African Violet Club Mysteries and the new Rainbow Ranch Mysteries. Since it occurs before the first novel in the next series, it makes sense to complete it first. Besides, I stand a chance of finishing that story in a week, maybe a little more, maybe a little less, which will mean I can check something off my list. I thoroughly enjoy marking tasks complete.

And then, if life doesn’t get too crazy, I’ll go back to the novel and try to make progress with that, along with dealing with the changes that are coming.

I just hope we don’t get too many more storms. Another violent thunderstorm moved through Tucson late this afternoon, bringing strong winds, sheets of rain, and thunder and lightning. My office window leaked again, of course, which meant stuffing towels along the sill and on the floor for a while. I will be so glad to not have to do that any more, but there’s a chance of more severe storms toward the end of next week, so we’re not out of the woods yet.

I can’t promise daily writing for the next month, but I will try to post brief updates whenever I do manage to get some words written.
