Happy Fall! The days seem to have gotten away from me. Summer passed in a blur and don't feel like I accomplished very much. Fall is here and for some reason feeling more inspired. The majority of extended family crises have passed which is a very good thing. I'm feeling a bit more creative and actually missing my writing time. We're slowly settling in to our new routine with 7th grade lessons. With the addition of P.E., James and I are spending an hour or so outside, playing catch and discussing a variety of things. My son is thoroughly taxing my brain to the utmost extent jumping from subject to subject, mainly history. I find myself saying 'wait a minute', running inside to get the encyclopedia. *grin*
Hubby is working on a new, improved version of his latest widget which means we've been working on advertising and websites and all the things that go with new and improving something. I'm in the process of learning all about ecommerce and online shopping carts. I'm thoroughly hating FTP protocols and wysiwyg editors when what you see isn't what you get. Way too buggy for me. Makes me really appreciate blogger. Now I'm trying to figure out a way to just do our business websites in blogger instead and save myself a lot of headaches. *sigh*
I've been ignoring my poor characters lately and never did finish the 2nd, or is it the 3rd edit, of Eyes in the Ashes. November is on the horizon and ready to start a new story, so...... Decided to take F2K's online 7 week creative writing course through Writer's University to give my creativity and imagination a bit of a jumpstart. Loving it already and this week, the task is to have one of the character's you created, tell a little about you. I'm going with Hunter who will be my lead in my newest story "Green Ice." He was supposed to have played a small part in Blue Steel as an old love interest. However, his part grew and threatened to takeover the story, so promised him a story of his own. Yep, the creative juices are flowing and I'll be doing a lot of brainstorming the next few weeks.
The next round of a Round of Words in 80 Days will be starting October 1st and I'm determined to do a better job with my goals this round. I unintentionally ended up sitting out Round 3. Now I just have to work on getting up a hour or two earlier in the mornings to fit in my writing time. Life is in an never ending state of flux. Wouldn't have it any other way.
It's awesome that James is taxing your brain -- in a good way. Too bad the online stuff is taxing it in a frustrating way. Happy fall.ReplyDelete
